Korean Twitch streamer ‘HAchubby‘ had an incredible wholesome reaction to her viewers raising enough money to send her to the United States. 

HAchubby is one of Korea’s most popular IRL streamers, doing everything from sitting at home and trying to impersonate Dr Disrespect to even dancing for viewers during a shift at work

As she’s cultivated a loyal viewer base, those fans who tune in on a daily basis took their opportunity to help HAchubby reach a long-time goal and leave her questioning whether or not what she was experiencing was actually real.

During her August 10 broadcast, the IRL streamer had set a goal of $7,000 to get her from Korea to the United States for Twitchcon and a trip to New York. Of course, donations filtered in and slowly helped her progress towards the target.

Yet, her viewers did not slow down – instead, they challenged each other to help HAchubby reach her final target with whatever donation they could make. As she closed in on the goal amount, the streamer became overwhelmed with emotions and began crying as well as doing her best to thank the fans.

Of course, the viewer donations weren’t finished after they hit the $7,000 goal, as they continued on. This left HAchubby even more thankful for their help as she tried to thank them but couldn’t believe what was happening.

“I really go,” she said between gasps. “I really go, this is real. This is real, I really go to TwitchCon. I can’t believe it, oh my god.” As the donations continued to pour in, the streamer had to take a step back to try and process what was happening, before needing to sit down. 

In total, HAchubby’s fans raised more than $7,350 before she closed donations as money continued to pour despite meeting the goal.

Considering she’ll be heading to TwitchCon at the end of September, fans will likely get the chance to meet their favorite IRL streamer as she heads to San Diego. Who knows, she might have even more adorable reactions to being greeted by support.

Streamer goes viral for calling out “disrespectful” Among Us players

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Julien ‘julien’ Solomita has gone viral for a clip in which he called out Among Us players who are disrespectful towards others in-game.

In the viral clip, which has been viewed over 350,000 times since being uploaded to Twitter on December 4, Julien blasted people who infect his lobbies with negativity or make others feel “unsafe.”

“When I make these lobbies, when I go around and hit up some of my friends, and often times some of my friends’ friends to play Among Us with me, I have one thing in mind: that everyone I’m inviting gets to have fun,” the streamer began his rant.

“Gets to feel welcome. Gets to feel safe. Gets the exact opportunity as everyone else to be listened to. And gets to go home at the end of the night and say that had a good night of gaming,” he continued.

Among Us has become one of the most popular online games.

According to Julien, this mantra should be enforced for new people. “I’ve met more people in the streaming world playing Among Us than I’ve ever met, by far, than any other game,” he explained. “So, when new people are in my lobbies, I try to go extra to out of my way to make those people feel like they’re welcome and they get to have fun.”

Communication can be key in Among Us, so it makes sense that anyone who plays would want to be able to speak freely and not be spoken over. As such, when players aren’t able to get a word in, the experience can be ruined.

This is why the streamer has “zero tolerance” for the “normalization” of disrespecting people in video games.

“Among Us is a game and it’s for fun. It’s not so boys can talk over women. It’s not to make new people in the group feel small or unwelcome. It’s not to win in every game at all costs,” he continued to rant. “It’s a game and it’s for everybody to enjoy.”

He went on to reach out to players who may have been disrespected in online games and hoped that they never experienced that again. “I don’t want anyone here to get the idea that it’s even close to normal for that to be how you feel when you play a video game. That’s not normal. It’s f**king weird, it’s wrong.”

A lot of people have taken Solomita’s message to heart and voiced their agreement in the replies. Hopefully, his words have a lasting effect on players feeling a bit out of touch in online games such as Among Us.
