Twitch streamer Posty was in for a birthday donation unlike any other when he was gifted $1,300 from a viewer who then soon demanded it be refunded – which ended up costing the broadcaster money.

On June 12, the Danish streamer was celebrating his birthday with a Twitch broadcast when suddenly, a viewer by the name of Prezma dropped a huge $1,300 donation.

“Yo Prezma, what?!” the streamer gasped with glee. “What the f**k! Prezma with f**king $1,300. Oh my God, dude. That’s like my biggest one-time donation.”

Sadly, mere moments later, the donor started claiming he didn’t mean to send such an abnormal amount.

“Please send that back, I didn’t mean to send that much,” the viewer begged.

At first, Posty thought the viewer was trolling him, but eventually, it became clear that he really didn’t intend to donate the massive sum.

“Posty, my parents are going to kill me!” the young viewer exclaimed, using another donation to make his voice heard. “I only meant to send $3.”

How the kid confused $3.00 with $1,300 confused everyone in the chat, including the birthday streamer, who eventually decided to do the right thing and gave the donation back, but by doing so ended up paying $75 in refund fees.

“I’m gonna go to Stream Elements and ban the guy from donating so I don’t have any future inconveniences,” Posty explained. “I refunded it all.”

Luckily, another one of his viewers came in clutch and gifted the streamer $75 to pay for the refund fees.

Prezma should consider himself lucky that Posty had enough of a heart to refund the donation at a loss, but it should also serve as a warning to kids who may be giving money to streamers with their parents’ credit cards – don’t.

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.
