During HAchubby’s visit to the United States in January, fans speculated whether the popular Korean Twitch streamer could be joining OfflineTV after visiting their house for a collaboration broadcast with Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys.

HAchubby was one of the breakout stars of Twitch in 2019, as the Korean streamer connected with viewers on her journey to learn English with her chat through meme culture.

However, after her second visit to the United States, speculation grew as to whether the personality could eventually be joining OfflineTV after she posted a photo wearing their merchandise.

Could HAchubby join OfflineTV?

The streamer visited the United States for the second time on January 16th, and documented her trip meeting up with American-based streamers such as AngelsKimi, MayaHiga, and TheSushiDragon.

However, the Twitch personality joined Pokimane for a stream on January 21 where the two discussed a variety of topics, such as her journey to learn English. “If you move to Los Angeles, you would learn English in six months. Done!” she told the Korean.

The following day on January 22, HAchubby joined the rest of the OfflineTV crew, which included LilyPichu, Fedmyster, Pokimane, and Michael Reeves, for a group IRL broadcast at Universal Studios in California.

While doing collaboration streams is not proof of her joining, HAchubby has showed interest in moving to America in the past, and when newest member YouTuber Michael Reeves joined the streaming group, he had hung out with them on numerous occasions before it became official.

Fan speculation was fueled further when the Korean streamer posted a photo on her Instagram on January 24, wearing an OfflineTV hoodie, which she had sported during their Universal broadcast.

After posting the photo, fans wondered if she could be the latest member to join OfflineTV, such as user ‘oceanic_pears’ who jokingly cracked “Lmao Hachu new offline.tv member confirmed?” – a sentiment that was seen in the chat during the group’s broadcast.

Only time will tell if HAchubby will ever move to the States to stream or whether she will land at the OfflineTV house, but fans can’t help but think of the possibility after her recent vacation.

At the time of this article, the Korean personality has amassed over 162k followers, which is all the more impressive considering she gained almost all of her viewers in just under a year since gaining popularity in 2019.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
