Twitch star “Invadervie” is known for her popular “Just Chatting” streams, where she sits in front of the camera and banters with her audience — but this style of broadcasting drew an unexpected imitation from a fellow streamer.

Invadervie skyrocketed to Twitch fame in 2019 during her first month on the platform, and has since become a major name in the online streaming world.

The style of Vie’s broadcasts sees her lounging back on a cushion-filled chair, where she answers questions from her viewers and discusses various topics with them.

Invadervie is a popular face on Twitch, best known for her “Just Chatting” broadcasts.

However, Korean streamer “bubbly_live” seemed to take issue with the way she positioned her body in full view of the camera, and decided to imitate her pose as a means of poking fun at the broadcaster.

“I gotta sit down like… I shouldn’t sit down like this,” she began, noting how Vie wasn’t sitting in a chair normally, but rather laid back against her cushions. “Maybe this is even better,” she continued, putting her feet up on her desk.

That wasn’t the end of her imitation, either: bubbly went on to give a shallow wave with her foot, mocking the Vie’s conversations with her viewers as she pushed her chair backward.

“Hi guys!” she greeted. “So… oh yeah, you wanna see my whole body? So, uh, send me more links!”

Bubbly went on to scour Vie’s “about” section on her Twitch channel, apparently surprised at the streamer’s age (29) and past occupation as a Disney Princess actress for the franchise’s theme parks.

“How do girls stream like this?” Bubbly asked as she browsed through Invadervie’s Instagram feed. “…that’s how you be famous on Twitch. D*mn. If I had the thighs, guys. …it’s probably f**king photoshopped.”

This wouldn’t be the first time another female broadcaster offered their take on Invadervie, either: Twitch star “Pokimane” likewise commented on the streamer’s heated rant against a rude viewer, claiming that the fan who’d made a comment about “Twitch thots” “does not give a sh*t.”

Whether you love her or hate her, there’s no denying that Invadervie continues to exist as one of Twitch’s top entertainers, thanks to the slew of unique moments that crop up during her broadcasts.

Paige breaks down on Twitch as WWE’s streaming crackdown kicks in

WWE superstar Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, broke down in front of her fans on Twitch after the news came through that her employers had started cracking down on talent engaging on third-party platforms. 

Under their new restrictions, the sports entertainment company will take proceeds from their stars streaming under the wrestling names. For example, Paige’s donations on Twitch would previously be paid to her directly, but in the future that will not be the case.

In response to the measures, stars like her and AJ Styles have decided to stop streaming for a period of time – until more suitable terms can be agreed between both parties.

For a wrestler like Paige, though, who is injured – this was a difficult pill to swallow.

Paige, like many other WWE stars, has a huge following on social media.

Paige gets devastating news on Twitch

On October 29, the British star – who hails from Norwich, England – decided to cancel her stream after receiving the news on her phone while live.  In the spur of the moment, she walked off-stream for a short while before returning to the screen. Tears flowing down her face, she started to explain what was happening.

The Twitch broadcast VOD itself has been muted in certain areas, potentially due to the music being played in the background. So, clips are quite hard to come by on there, but some have posted the comments to YouTube.

Bevis said: “There may be a time where I have to stop streaming. I’ll have to walk away. If I have to leave, we have to make today and Saturday f***ing crazy. I’ve honestly gotten to the point where I cannot deal with this company anymore. Now I have to make a very important decision.

“Over f***ing worked. I broke my f***ing neck twice for this company. They don’t realize that this community isn’t about subs. We build a community and family where this is an escape for a lot of people, including myself. I can’t wrestle anymore. I was worked so hard in WWE that I can’t wrestle anymore because my neck is f***ed. My whole dreams got taken away. I had to have something that fulfilled that huge f***ing void that I lost with wrestling.”

Twitch has been an escape for injured Paige

The star injured her neck back in 2017 and has since even returned to the ring. At the time of her stream, though, she is out with another injury and unable to compete. Turning to Twitch, she has built up quite the following – with almost 150,000 people following her channel.

After that, she confirmed that she plans to continue streaming one way or another, and will see where that takes her. During the livestream, Paige revealed going live on the streaming website wasn’t for the donations and subscriber payments, but instead, an escape.

She added: “I understand if they’re like, ‘you’re wrestling every day and doing shows every day,’ but I’m an injured wrestler. I get used for media stuff, sometimes, but at the end of the day, I’m in my house going f***ing crazy and I need something to keep me sane.

“Twitch was my escape. Right now, I’m just sitting on my f***ing ass. People think I should be thankful that I still have a job, and I am, but it doesn’t mean I should be treated like f***ing shit. I had my neck taken away from me twice. You can’t take away my Twitch too.”

It appears to be heating up in the battle between employees and their employer. There’s a good chance WWE superstars take further action in the dispute too, as Paige mentioned potential unionization and hiring a lawyer, so it could be about to get a whole lot messier.
