Twitch is one of the net’s most popular livestreaming platforms, providing a near-constant flood of hilarious and unexpected debacles – one of which almost resulted in a house fire.

Korean Twitch streamer 곧유미장인 (also known as “orhae”) was in the middle of a “Just Chatting” stream on June 16 when she made an attempt to call her cat, who wasn’t in her streaming room at the time.

However, upon opening her door, she quickly realized that something was amiss: after scooting her chair closer to the threshold, she noticed that her stove had been turned on, setting what looked to be a plastic package ablaze.

Orhae, TwitchStreamer ‘Orhae’s’ broadcast was interrupted by her furry friend, who’d decided to turn on the stovetop while she was busy.

Orhae quickly rinsed the package off in the bathroom, wafting smoke away in the kitchen as she exclaimed in obvious shock.

According to commenters on Reddit, the streamer’s cat had turned on her infrared stove, accidentally setting the package ablaze – with the culprit seen strutting along the floor as Orhae cleans up her kitchen.

This wouldn’t be the first time a cat has caused a veritable “catastrophe” during a live stream, by far; Twitch streamer ‘itsjustj0rd’ had his broadcast interrupted by his own furry friend on June 14, who ended up ending the stream, thanks to its playful antics.

That’s not all; another streamer’s cat accidentally caused a shocking nip-slip on camera, after struggling to get out of its owner’s arms.

    Lengyel was in the middle of a joint stream when his microphone suddenly went crazy, causing his partner to laugh out loud and ask what was going on.

    “Oh, no, the cat stepped on it,” xQc explained, referring to his audio mixer.

    Whether you love them or hate them, one thing’s for certain; cats sure know how to make a stream interesting.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
