Jadeyanh has reassured her Twitch fans she is “okay” and her father is “still alive” after a stalker called her, threatened her dad’s life, and demanded she expose herself live on-stream during the streamer’s Jan. 17 broadcast.

The popular Just Chatting star, Jade-Anh ‘Jadeyanh’ Ngo, broke down in tears and ended her stream early after a shocking phone call from her stalker midway through the broadcast.

One viewer, who confirmed they were watching the stream live when the incident occurred, reported that “a stalker called her” using her father’s phone number. Once on the phone, they demanded she “show her breasts on Twitch,” or they would hurt her dad. She then “realized her father was fine, and called the police.”

Dexerto has sighted the now-deleted VOD to confirm details.

“I’m okay and my dad is still alive,” she tweeted soon after ending her stream.

Her father, Harvey Hung Ngo, also replied to the Twitter post. He confirmed he was still alive and “will be [for] a long time.” Jadeynah’s dad also said “my daughter is strong, and no one can blackmail her, you asshole. We will get you!”

Jadeyanh confirmed these details in a Twitter post soon after.

“While streaming my ‘Dad’ called me. When I picked up, a guy demanded that I must show my boobs on stream. He said if I refused, he will slit my dad’s throat who, according to him, was lying tied up on the floor,” she wrote.

“He kept calling me horrible things and even dropped my address in order to terrify me even more. I tried to reason with him. After I refused to show my boobs, because he wouldn’t let me speak to my dad, he said he killed him.”

Her father, however, was “fine, asleep” when this phone call occurred. One of Jadeyanh’s mods wrote in her chat that they had “contacted [her] uncle,” who then contacted her dad. After seeing this, Jadeyanh hung up and called the police.

The Twitch streamer — who spoke in German for the duration of the on-stream call — said she shared the details so there wouldn’t be “any misunderstandings.”

“On that note, thank you everyone who was there to comfort me. Special thank you to my mod, Creditz, for going above and beyond. I am truly blessed to have someone like you in my life,” she added in a follow-up tweet.

“I’m still under shock because I believed for a couple of seconds that I let my dad get murdered because I didn’t flash on stream. Everything feels numb.”

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Jadeyanh has had a run-in with a stalker on-stream. In November, the streamer was repetitively delivered pizzas and had a fake gas leak reported in her building. She begged the stalker to “please stop.”

It is unclear whether these two incidents were from the same person.

Another streaming superstar, Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter, also had a run-in with a stalker recently. She was forced to ask Twitter for help, after a “delusional stalker” made hundreds of accounts in a bid to get her attention.

A number of other stars have also reported stalkers and “scary” incidents, including Fuslie, Sweet Anita, Gabbie Hanna, Mr Beast, Jenna, and more.

Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
