Twitch streamer Angelica ‘AyyTrae’ was stunned after a passerby directed aggressively vulgar comments toward her while broadcasting in the streets of Los Angeles.

AyyTrae routinely takes her streams throughout the city without a hitch, but neither she or her Twitch Chat expected the encounter to unfold and escalate as it did.

The streamer had taken a moment of repose in front of a salon after walking around the streets when someone must have taken issue with the camera she was holding up in order to broadcast.

AyyTrae TwitchThe streamer was shocked at the harsh words directed to her.

AyyTrae was in the middle of talking to her Chat when someone stopped in front of the streamer to give her a piece of his mind.

“Excuse me, have you ever heard of a psychological condition called clinical narcissism,” the man asked before continuing. “I’m pretty sure you have it.”

The encounter left AyyTrae baffled, with her simply replying “thanks, bro.” But if the unprompted diagnosis wasn’t enough, the unknown man felt it necessary to leave her with a harsh personal insult, saying: “Hey suck a dick, c***.”

AyyTrae was left wide-eyed while wondering what just happened as someone near her can be heard equally shocked at the unprovoked outburst.

Calm and collectively, AyyTrae reassured the person still near her that all was well, but the streamer was still speechless.

While her Twitch Chat had all sorts of ideas such as tracking the man down and telling him off, AyyTrae found a wiser solution even in the heat of the moment.

“‘Don’t escalate, but tell him to eff off,’” AyyTrae read before replying. “I feel telling someone to eff off is kind of escalating. If you match their negative energy, I feel that it gets infinitely worse. It’s basically escalating the conflict, why would I escalate it? Just don’t give his words power.”

Of all her time broadcasting while in the streets of Los Angeles, AyyTrae couldn’t recall something like that happening to her before, but it didn’t stop her from enjoying the rest of her stream.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
