Popular “Just Chatting” streamer “Kandyland” is a familiar face for Twitch regulars, known for the humorous moments that happen during her broadcasts as well as her funny interactions with viewers.

However, one such interaction didn’t go very swimmingly, as the streamer bumped into a hater in real life during a night out at a nightclub to kick off the 2020 New Year.

According to the streamer, she and the person in question were hitting it off before he made some unsavory comments regarding her content.

kandylul, InstagramPopular Twitch streamer “Kandyland” had a tense encounter with what she called a “real-life troll.”

“There was a guy who came up to me, who recognized me from the internet,” Kandyland began. “What he said was, ‘You only get views because you have big tits, and they’re probably not even real.’”

She argued against this view before moving on with her story, claiming that, “The reason people choose to stay and watch me is not because of my appearance. …I don’t need to defend myself. It’s rude. I don’t want to cover up, okay?”

That wasn’t the end of the troll’s offensive comments, though – he went on to comment on Kandyland’s derriere, as well, claiming that “it’s probably flat” when her friend came to her defense.

“Was that necessary?” the streamer questioned of the critic’s hateful words. “Was that necessary? No, it wasn’t. So I just walked away. I didn’t say anything. But that’s like a troll in real life. … a real-life incel!”

Kandyland went on to hypothesize why the bystander would make such harmful comments, theorizing that he felt she was “better than him” due to her online presence, and wanted to “devalue” her by knocking her down a peg.

According to the streamer, this isn’t even the first time such a scenario has happened in real life, claiming that a similar encounter occurred at a DreamHack gaming convention.

“I’m so worried,” she continued. “This happened at DreamHack, this happened at the festival… I’m so worried that the trolls are getting out. When they are under the influence, I guess. Whatever he did.”

Needless to say, it’s never a good idea to spread hate, whether online or in real life: but Kandyland’s reaction to the rude stranger de-escalated a potentially dangerous situation, which could have gotten out of hand, had she decided to lash out at the man.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
