Popular Twitch streamer, ‘HAchubby’, received a sizable donation while streaming her real-life ventures to ‘Just Chatting’, and her reaction shows exactly why her fanbase is growing rapidly.

HAchubby is a rising star on Twitch, having amassed over 120,000 followers since June 2019. Her comedic antics and transition into Western culture is often a focal point of her streams.

Having developed a faithful fanbase in her short time on the streaming platform, the Korean has been embraced from all corners of Twitch — with Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys showing her support after the pair met in-person. 

HAchubby (Twitch)HAchubby frequently interacts with her chat while streaming her real-life adventures.

Noted for her musical talents, HAchubby was simply browsing for a new piano within a Korean shopping mall while streaming her endeavors to Twitch. 

Looking to add to her collection of musical instruments after already receiving a substantial donation towards her piano fund, the Korean was given an extra $1,000 to put in the kitty and instantly showed her gratitude by exclaiming: “Thank you so much, thank you so much!”

Somewhat astonished by the continuous support from her fans, the Korean continued with an amusing reaction: “I’m going crazy, crazy, crazy; crazy life, crazy life, crazy life… Yes, crazy life!”

Clearly bewildered, HAchubby was left stumbling upon her words: “I’m crazy, I’m crazy, I’m not normal, I’m not human, I’m just… I’m just crazy!

Of course, an unexpected donation of such magnitude would likely produce a reaction of a similar nature in anyone. 

However, given HAchubby’s quirky and relatable character, her response is all the more wholesome and was lapped up by her chat. It looks like she’ll be able to get an even better keyboard than planned, and put the money back into improving her broadcasts.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
