Popular Twitch streamer HAchubby has taken her IRL streams to the United States and is already being spotted by other streamers during the trip. 

The Korean can often be seen playing video games and talking in front of a camera on her constantly growing channel, racking up a total of almost 100,000 followers since starting out on the streaming platform.

While she might have had several big moments go viral during the course of 2019 already, there’s a good chance that she might not have expected to be stream sniped on her travels – judging by her reaction at least. 

TwitchTwitch streamers have flooded to San Diego for North America’s TwitchCon.

Fellow streamer Zulu was hosting their own IRL stream on September 25 and took a moment to record their surroundings, before noticing that a very familiar pink-haired woman was on top of a nearby bus, talking in front of her camera.

While it might be a bit of a leap to suggest that this was stream sniping, it’s still fairly possible that somebody in Zulu’s group knew of HAchubby’s whereabouts. Members of the chat certainly did, after mentioning her name soon after the encounter. 

Either way, it turned out to be one of the most wholesome moments both streamers could have imagined. “Wait, you streaming? Gamers… Are you streaming? We’re streaming!” one lady from the group said, before exchanging Twitch names with the Korean. 

HAchubby and Zulu are just two of many streamers that will be coming together to meet up, and greet fans, at the San Diego TwitchCon between September 27-29.

This meeting, as the footage shows, at the San Diego Zoo – a very typical tourist destination for anybody visiting the area. However, not many would have expected to see these two streams collide, even for a split second, for this encounter. 

There’s no doubt that even more IRL streamer crossovers will take place in the run-up to, and during, the event to close out the month. Just like many other fans, we’ll be waiting in anticipation!

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
