Twitch star ‘InvaderVie’ has finally apologized for comments she made during an April 14 broadcast, where she shamed unsubscribed viewers for not supporting her with a five-dollar subscription.

Her comments soon went viral, with many high profile streamers such as Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel chiming in on the situation.

After receiving mass backlash from the Twitch community, InvaderVie has now spoken out about her comments, and is asking for forgiveness.

InvaderVie has finally responded after her comments drew massive backlash.

“You’re here right now because you’ve seen a clip of me, and you’re very angry about what I said in that clip,” the streamer began an April 22 broadcast. “What I said was tone deaf, insensitive and stupid.”

The streamer added that there was no context she could give to justify her comments, and that her viewers were rightfully angry at her.

“The clip that you saw does not represent my true feelings,” she continued. “I’ve streamed for hundreds of hours and I’ve said, ‘Support communities after you support yourself first. Subscribe if you have the disposable income to do so.’ But in that clip, I expressed opinions that I do not hold.”

“I said things that I don’t mean and they were vile. I recognize that,” she added.

Invadervie went on to stress that she handled the situation poorly, that five dollars means different things to different people and that lumping her viewers together was “inappropriate” and “disconnected.”

The broadcaster’s original rant directed towards unsubscribed viewers went viral, amassing nearly 500,000 viewers on Twitch alone.

In the infamous clip, the streamer argued that, “If you have time to watch Twitch, you have ten dollars, truly. If you don’t have ten dollars, you probably don’t have time to watch Twitch, because you should be working.”

Invadervie’s latest statement begs the questions: Will viewers accept her apology? What will the future hold for the Just Chatting streamer? For now, fans will have to wait and see – but it doesn’t look like the internet is giving her a free pass anytime soon.

Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
