Japanese Twitch streamer “Meowko” had an unsavory experience with a stranger while she was trying to stream Halloween festivities in Tokyo’s Shibuya ward. 

With Halloween upon us, folks are out and about celebrating the spooky holiday all around the world – including Tokyo’s Shibuya ward, where crowds gather en masse to party in the center’s iconic street crossings.

However, such gatherings are known to get a bit rowdy, with a reported 13 arrests made last year for such offenses as theft, assault, and groping, the last of which was caught on camera during a streamer’s 2019 Halloween festivities.

Japanese streamer “Meowko” was making her way through Shibuya’s crowded streets with a group of friends when her camera caught a gut-wrenching incident that left viewers’ jaws on the floor.

As they walked, a man casually reached out and grabbed her friend’s breast, angrily lifting his hand as he was reproached by the woman before being moved out of view by the crowd.

The partygoers regrouped a few moments later, where Meowko explained that her friend had kicked the man in reaction to the assault – an understandable response to such a horrific act.

“She kicked him,” Meowko explained in shock. “She just said that she kicked the man because the dude was grabbing her boob. Holy s**t, oh my god. I’m so sorry. She just kicked him so hard.”

The internet is mostly in agreement with her friend’s actions, with commenters across sites like Reddit denouncing the groping in heated comments out of anger for the woman.

“The audacity,” one user wrote of the interaction. “What the ****? And he tries to look confused after.”

“That’s some messed up s**t right there,” another commented. “That dude must be a pathetic and sad **** virgin for doing such s**t. I hope somebody knows him from the video and confronts him hard.”

Others were confused that the policeman in the clip seemed to “move the crowd along” without confronting the groper – although some argued that he may not have seen the incident due to the mass of people crowding the street.

No matter the case, sexual assault is never okay. With Halloween parties rife in the coming days, the incident on Meowko’s stream acts as a shocking warning to partygoers to protect themselves and celebrate safely.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
