Popular Korean Twitch streamer Giannie Lee was the subject of overt racism during an IRL broadcast in Berlin, Germany – but that wasn’t the only hate she received during her trip, by far.

Lee was in the midst of yet another IRL stream when she was accosted by a male stranger as she walked, who shouted “Ching chong!” into the camera in an attempt to mock Asian languages.

Lee wasn’t impressed by his antics and asked, “What are you talking about?” in retaliation, prompting the bystander to ask where she was from.

Giannie Lee, TwitterPopular Korean Twitch streamer Giannie Lee has been the subject of overt racism throughout her stay in Berlin, Germany, recording three separate instances of harassment by strangers during her livstreams.

“South Korea?” the stranger queried. “Very nice, I’m from Turkey.”

While the bystander’s vitriol seemed to lessen as he waved goodbye to the audience, beer in hand, Lee wasn’t quelled by his attempt at conversation.

“Racist, right?” she asked her viewers. “He said, ‘Ching chong,’ right? ‘Is it going to be like this everyday?’ Probably…”

Lee’s continuous brushes with racism in Berlin

That’s not all; Lee was also the target of yet another racist bystander during the same stream, who shouted ‘Ni hao!’ into her camera – prompting Lee to explain that she was a South Korean native.

This wouldn’t be the first time Lee has been accosted by racists during her stream in Germany; she was likewise harassed by two strangers while eating dinner during a broadcast on April 18, who pulled at the corners of their eyes while they made a mockery of Asian languages.

Despite their overt racism, Lee managed to stay calm and collected, coolly explaining to the strangers that they were being watched by hundreds of people online before they left her table.

Killing them with kindness

Lee went on to ask her audience to forgive the two men, claiming that their behavior was childlike.

“But it’s okay,” she said of the incident. “It can be okay. He’s just a kid to me, right? He’s too young to…. Forgive him.”

While viewers were awed at Lee’s handling of the initial incident, they were left angered by the second and third occurrences, with some wondering why the streamer chose to stay in Berlin after being profiled in such an aggressive manner.

Lee has yet to respond to either of the incidents via her Twitter account.

Logan Paul wants to fight NHL pro Evander Kane after challenging Jake

YouTube sensation Logan Paul responded to a boxing challenge NHL pro Evander Kane issued to his brother, Jake, during the Impaulsive podcast.

Right after Jake scored a stunning knockout on former basketball player Nate Robinson, the San Jose Sharks left-winger sent a challenge Paul’s way, claiming he’s easy, get ‘wrecked.’

Now, one of the Paul brothers has seemingly accepted the challenge, but it wasn’t the one who Kane was expecting.

“San Jose Sharks? What is that exactly? Some sort of fish or aquatic animal who lives in San Jose?” Logan joked and read Kane’s original tweet. (Segment begins at 33:28)

A post shared by Jake Paul (@jakepaul)

“Put him on a list,” he remarked. “Does Jake Paul vs Evander Kane, is that a headline fight? How many buys does that get?”

While Jake’s last fight was on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s boxing return against Roy Jones JR, some could argue that Paul stole the show with his huge knockout that went viral on social media. It’s unclear if Kane would have the same star power as Robinson.

The podcast members agreed that the fight wouldn’t exactly be worthy of a headliner, but Logan Paul had an idea.

“Or does he just do it because he will get another fantastic f**king knockout? Is he even active?” Logan asked, inquiring about if Kane was still playing in the NHL. “Okay, so when is he going to train boxing? We’ll go through it again. I’ll put a quarter-million down this time.”

With Logan Paul down to step into the ring against Kane, all that was needed was a response by the forward, who wasted no time in accepting the invitation.

In a short eight-second video tweet, the Sharks player accepted the challenge quite confidently.

“Logan Paul, I’ll take the mop off your head and wipe the floor with you,” he said and proceeded to tag the YouTuber in the reply.

It’s unclear when or if this fight actually goes down, especially with Kane being active in the NHL, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. The NHL season is set to begin on January 1 at the earliest, but hopefully, the two can arrange for a fight in the following off-season.
