“Invadervie” is a popular broadcaster on Twitch, known for her “Just Chatting” streams and humorous interactions with viewers — one of whom got shut down in a major way in spite of their seemingly positive comment.

Invadervie is one of Twitch’s quickest-growing personalities, who skyrocketed to fame during her first month on the platform.

Although the 29-year-old Canadian will broadcast video games or musical content at times, she most often chats with her audience of over 125k viewers, which has lead to more than a few unique conversations in the past.

Invadervie is a a popular face on Twitch, best known for her “Just Chatting” streams where she talks with her viewers.

One such conversation occurred during a February 8 broadcast, after a viewer claimed that she was their favorite streamer.

Despite the apparent compliment, Invadervie called out the commenter for seeming to use flattery as a way to receive positive attention from a broadcaster — despite not financially supporting them.

“I don’t believe you, exactly, that I’m your favorite streamer, because you’re not subbed to me,” she replied. “That just seems… I don’t know if there’s evidence to your claim. I’m a highly emotional person, and so I see that, and my first instinct is, ‘Yay, I’m your favorite! That means that I’m the best!’”

She went on to clarify that she doesn’t want to give out snap judgements, but chooses to react “logically” to avoid being potentially extorted.

“But I also need you to realize that because I am a highly emotional person, that can lead me to being taken advantage of very quickly, so I focus on behaving as a highly logical person,” she continued. “I don’t try to judge anybody, but I do try to perceive you for all the evidence you’re giving me of your character.”

It comes as little surprise that the streamer knew right away that the viewer wasn’t subscribed, as she previously admitted to conducting very thorough research on her financial supporters.

This wouldn’t be the first time she’s popped off on a viewer before, either: Invadervie also delivered a scathing clapback to a troll who accused her of being a “Twitch thot” in early January, showing that she’s not afraid to call out those who aren’t acting up to par in her chat room or practicing what they preach, for that matter.

YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star has finally opened up about the drama from this past summer, which kicked off after critics accused he and fellow influencer Shane Dawson of attempting to sabotage beauty guru James Charles.

Jeffree Star is a huge name in the influencer world. Starting out as a MySpace icon and music artist, Star later migrated to YouTube, where he cultivated a massive community of fans and even kicked off his own makeup brand.

Now, Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a company held in high regard among makeup circles, but recent drama has placed a shadow over the brand’s owner.

In summer 2020, controversy sparked regarding Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star after rumors began circulating online that the two had orchestrated the canceling of James Charles in May 2019.

This speculation heightened after Tati Westbrook — a beauty YouTuber behind the “Bye Sister” video of viral fame — accused Star and Dawson of feeding her “poisonous lies” about Charles, which had purportedly led her to create the 2019 video.

The entire scandal was also wrapped up in multiple additional controversies surrounding both Star and Dawson, which even saw the involvement of Jada Pinkett Smith amid the outrage.

However, the summer has come and gone, and Star has now opened up about what it was like being at the center of intense internet vitriol.

YouTubers Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star came under scrutiny in late June after makeup mogul Tati Westbrook accused them of orchestrating the 2019 drama around James Charles.

“When everything happened this summer, it was just all so… it was just a lot,” Star explained during an episode of the ‘The Sip’ podcast with Dawson’s fiancé, Ryland Adams. “It was so mentally draining and crazy. It was traumatic.”

“I had never experienced that before,” he continued, revealing that he’d even been told to end his own life by critics. “To continuously hear that over and over and over… it was so crazy. The new normal became aggressive mental abuse. But I’m not trying to say that for sympathy.”

Star’s statement on the drama has been met with mixed reviews, with some feeling that he is “refusing to take accountability,” while others show sympathy toward the YouTuber in wake of the overwhelming negative reactions he received.
