Twitch star and Instagram model ‘JadeyAnh’ was getting drinks with her cousins when she was confronted by a group of male strangers, who made racist remarks toward the streamer and her family during her live broadcast.

Anh, a German-Vietnamese streamer living in Germany, was spending some much-needed family time at a local bar on June 22 when she and her two cousins, both women, were approached by an unruly group of men.

Apparently inebriated, the group walked up behind the streamer and began to make a mockery of Asian languages in front of the camera as she broadcast her evening to her 155k followers.

One of the strangers started shouting racist remarks, making sure to get in the frame.

“What’s the name of — “ another began.

“Get off,” Anh commanded, clearly annoyed. “Why did you say [that]? That’s f**king racist! Yeah, it’s f**king racist! What the f**k is going on, man?”

JadeyAnh was quick to call the strangers out on their racist behavior, leading to a tense conversation between the two parties.

Anh continued to confront the strangers, turning around to challenge one of the men standing behind her.

“What’s the point?” she questioned. “Like, you could have just said hi. You had to say, [that].”

“It was only funny,” he replied, as though trying to play the situation off as a joke.

“It’s not funny,” Anh and her cousin said in tandem.

After a few more back-and-forths with the bystander, he appeared to concede that his “joke” was, indeed, offensive, admitting, “Oh, okay, no problem.”

This didn’t stop the initial offender from making another pass at the camera before taking off with the rest of his squad.

“Yeah, get off,” Anh shot back, lighting up a cigarette. “Small man.”

This is far from the first time such instances of racism have been caught on camera via Twitch; in fact, popular streamer Gianee Lee was harassed multiple times by racist strangers during her trip to Berlin, Germany in April 2019, painting a concerning history of her IRL travels on the platform.

Thankfully, both she and JadeyAnh were able to quickly to call out this deplorable behavior without being harmed, letting the offenders know that racism is not acceptable, no matter what.

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.
