Twitch streamer Hitoshi ‘SmashGodXx’ Uechi appeared on Judge Judy after his live streamed date with Saisai Zhang went horribly wrong. 

Back in 2018, Uechi was streaming his date with Zhang, but apparently she had no idea until his viewers starting making rude comments that she was being filmed. 

Footage of the incident, including where Zhang alleged that SmashGodXx was kidnapping her, went viral on the popular video website WorldStarHipHop. Zhang was so upset over the encounter she wanted to take the streamer to the public courts, and opted for Judge Judy. 

SmashGodXxUechi met up with Zhang in a parking lot.

The case was filled with all sorts of bizarre moments in which the popular TV judge scolded Uechi for his comments and attitude.

For instance, early on, Uechi had to explain the concept of Twitch and Tinder to Judge Judy, and how he made money off the platform. 

“And you live on this?” the judge asked.  “I mean, I don’t live like you,” he responded for a chorus of laughs.

Eventually the conversation turned to when if ever Zhang was aware that she was being filmed, or if he ever told her his plan to broadcast their meetup. 

Twitch/SmashGodXxThe ‘date’ soon turned into a disaster.

“I said to her: ‘is it okay if I vlog on Twitch?’” the streamer explained, but confused the TV star who had no idea what ‘vlogging’ was. The judge then asked the plaintiff if she knew what Uechi was talking about and she claimed to have no idea either.

“It’s a 20th century thing,” SmashGod responded only to be slammed by Judge Judy once more for getting the date wrong. “The 20th century they used horse carts,” she mocked even getting a chuckle out of the bailiff.

As the case continued, the TV host summed what was so upsetting to Saisai Zhang. “While she was being filmed in your car, the morons who have nothing better to do in their life like get a job and work, they had nothing better to do than bully your date.”

Twitch/SmashGodXxSmashGodXx was laughing after he dropped Zhang off.

After watching a video of the incident, Judge Judy had made up her mind. “You’re an idiot,” she told him. “Pay as much attention to what I’m saying to you as you did to match your tie to your hair,” Judy blasted the green-haired streamer. 

“You streamed your date and proudly acknowledged you had 94 people watching and commenting on her,” she went on. Despite SmashGod’s attempts to say the camera was more focused on him, the Judge simply responded by saying he was narcissistic. 

In the end, SmashGodXx lost the case and had to pay Zhang $5,000. Hopefully in the future he makes it very clear to people that he’s filming them before broadcasting.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
