IRL Tokyo streamer saves tourist from potential dangerous scam

IRL Twitch streamer ‘robcdee’ saved an unsuspecting tourist from a potentially dangerous scam on the streets of Tokyo, and it happened live on the broadcast!

Rob, an Australian streamer who documents his travels around Japan on Twitch, was contemplating heading into a sports bar on May 14 when he noticed a tourist being led to a club nearby.

Due to his experience traversing the land of the rising sun, the streamer had a feeling the tourist could be about to be scammed and asked his chat what he should do.

“That guy’s getting scammed!” he exclaimed. “That guy’s getting scammed. Do I save him?”

In the past, Robcdee has made a habit of “saving” tourists in awkward situations being aggressively hit on by strangers and even kids who have lost their parents.

After chat urged the streamer to attempt to save the stranger, Rob took off on his bike and whispered to the potential club goer that he was “being scammed.”

“You’ll lose like, a grand,” he informed the man.

“Oh yeah?” the stranger questioned back.

Rob caught up with the man before he entered the club.

“Yeah,” Rob replied and hurried back to the sports bar.

While it’s unclear if the man was definitely going to be scammed, or whether there was any trouble at all, some users on Reddit speculated that the tourist may have been walking into a trap, one involving the potential use of drugs.

“Dudes get baited into going into bars where they’ll supposedly meet beautiful Japanese women who would love to chat/drink with them and they end up getting scammed,” user TheEmoWalrus chimed in.

Rob wanted to save a stranger from potentially scammed in a Japanese bar.

“Usually involves a drugged drink and they run your cards/go through your wallet while you’re passed out. If you try to leave they might also rough you up a bit to make you pay,” the user continued. “Sadly a lot of people who come over don’t do their research on stuff like this and think that since Japan is so safe that stuff like this doesn’t happen.”

Whatever the case, it would seem like the “Angel of Shibuya” was able to keep the stranger from the club and with his money intact.

PeterParkTV claims Fedmyster tried to get Yvonne fired from OfflineTV

Twitch streamer and friend of OfflineTV, Peter Park, has weighed in on the controversy surrounding Fedmyster, Pokimane, and Yvonne, rebuffing claims that Fed didn’t want OTV’s manager replaced. 

Back in June, the OfflineTV community was turned upside down as members of the content collective accused Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan of harassment and misconduct.

Fed had not appeared on social media since giving a statement on the accusations and his removal from OfflineTV, but on November 25, he reappeared on Twitter after private messages between himself and Pokimane were leaked in a document titled ‘My Truth.’

In the document, Gaytan accused Pokimane of twisting the truth about their relationship – claims to which Poki has responded. Additionally, there have also been accusations about the former OTV member wanting their house manager, Yvonne, fired – which he and some of his fans have denied.

Pokimane and Fed’s relationship has been centre to the OfflineTV drama.

However, Twitch streamer and friend of OfflineTV, Peter Park, dismissed those claims – claiming himself that Fed made it clear that he wanted to make a change with OfflineTV’s house manager. 

“In this document, there is a section that says Fed never wanted Yvonne fired. I can personally say that this is not true,” he said during his November 26 stream, adding that he wasn’t sure if Fed was “deliberately lying or whatever.” 

Peter noted that Fed would regularly visit him and on one occasion had been discussing OfflineTV and Yvonne. 

“And he was talking about how Yvonne was lazy, no lifing League, not really helping with content, not really doing a good job as a house manager, and that her room would be better suited for a bigger content creator – and how they were moving toward having her replaced and removed from OTV,” Peter added. 

The Twitch streamer also decided against diving into the leaked screenshots between Pokimane and Fed, adding that plenty of takes have already been given on those. But, he did want to clarify the situation about Fed not wanting to replace Yvonne. 

“People were saying Fed never wanted her fired and that was a huge talking point and I just wanted to say that’s not true, and that’s that, I’m going to end it there,” Peter concluded. 

As Peter notes, many prominent Twitch streamers have weighed in on the drama, giving their take,but not all of them have garnered a response.

It remains to be seen if Fed or anyone else will respond to Park’s own claims, because as of writing, he hasn’t posted on social media since November 25.
