IRL Twitch streamer ‘ImJasmine’ was left stunned after a stranger randomly touched her with his nose while running across a beach in Vietnam.

The streamer was walking around the beach during a March 30 broadcast while talking with her viewers and enjoying the scenery.

As Jasmine was trying to figure out a potential stream delay issue by getting her viewers to spam “bobs” in chat, a man started approaching from behind.

The man came out of nowhere.

What made the whole thing more bizarre was she was counting to ten and right as she reached it, the man sped up and appeared to hit her with his nose, causing the startled streamer to leap back.

It’s unclear what prompted the man to act like that, but Jasmine had no interest in engaging with the individual who was walking farther up ahead.

“Oh my God,” she cried while the strange man walked passed and gave her a thumbs up. “That was so scary. Did that guy just sniff me?!”

The whole encounter was extremely bizarre from the sniff to the thumbs up, but according to Jasmine, the man did more than just smell her.

“He literally just… he went up and wiped his nose and sniffed me on my shoulder,” she disgustedly explained. “Can I just go this way before I get murdered?”

Luckily, because she was at a beach, the Canadian decided to just go into the water and wash herself and get germs off her body.

“That was some Silence of the Lambs s**t,” she laughed, referencing the 1991 Oscar-winning film starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins.

Eventually, she was able to get away from the man and off the beach safely, but she was clearly still absolutely baffled at what transpired.

JakeNBake hit with DMCA strike for Kanye song in two-year-old Twitch clip

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Jake’n’Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
