Popular Twitch streamer JustaMinx left fans worried after she posted photos of her bloody legs without any explanation – but she has now explained the bizarre situation that led to her painful injuries.
JustaMinx has been making a name for herself on Twitch over the last few months. She’s joined an Envy content house with CodeMiko and the Botez sisters, won her first influencer boxing match, and even gained over two million followers on the platform.
On June 16, though, the creator left her fans worried after uploading pictures of her bloody legs on Twitter without any explanation behind them.
It turns out, as later explained on her stream, that the damage was caused while out in nature, where she was startled by an unidentified wild animal. After charging the animal in a “fight or flight” scenario, Minx fell down a slope and landed in cacti.

Fans quickly took to the comments worried about the creator.

JustaMinx explains story behind injuries
Minx explained the situation during a Twitch stream a short while later. According to the streamer, she and several other content creators had returned from a boxing training session to hop in the pool at her home.
The group began to drink at the informal gathering when it was suggested that they all go hiking up a nearby hill. The inebriated buddies were making their way into the wilderness when Minx fell into a swath of cacti – but that wasn’t fully to blame for her wounds.
During their excursion, the streamers thought they heard an animal. Minx theorizes it was a creature “smaller than a mountain lion.” In her state, she “charged at” the critter, claiming her “fight or flight” instincts had kicked in.
According to her, she only received one bite from the cat before “falling down the hill,” resulting in the plethora of scratches and scrapes she received.
Luckily, Minx is safe and sound… although she’s definitely feeling the pain from her late-night hiking adventures.
