Lil Yachty Ends His Fortnite Stream in a Rage After Chat Says He Sucks – “I don’t care, I’m a millionaire”

Rapper Lil Yachty turned his Twitch stream on for the first time in months on Saturday August 4, to play the Black Ops 4 beta and Fortnite, but turned it off abruptly after his chat turned against him.

Lil Yachty has been more involved in the gaming community this year, starting his Twitch channel and attending the Pro-Am Fortnite tournament at E3.

But as any streamer will confirm, Twitch chat can be a volatile place, and even more so for a famous rapper who already splits opinion amongst music fans.

Viewers in his chat started to spam with messages about how Yachty ‘sucked’, both at rapping and playing video games, which prompted him to turn off the stream.

He responded to the haters first though, saying “I don’t care, I’m a millionaire” and telling them exactly what he thought of them.

“I do suck, I don’t care. I am a millionaire. Fuck what you talking about, I don’t give a fuck. Let me suck. My house big as shit. I got six cars. Fuck y’all.”

Only about 30 seconds later, he said he had to go somewhere, and cut the stream short. He had been streaming for over an hour however, and for someone like Lil Yachty, his schedule is probably hectic.

Yachty also tried out some of his viewers suggestions for music during the stream, including a song by IRL streamer ‘EBZ’ called ‘Gator Skin’, but he wasn’t impressed.

Lil Yachty did say he would try to be back streaming more regularly, following the release of his album earlier this year. With Black Ops 4 round the corner, Yachty fans may be in for some more gaming action soon.

He started his channel with the release of the last Call of Duty, WWII, before moving to stream Fortnite more often.

TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
