Popular content creator Lily ‘Lilypichu’ Ki has issued a response after having her Twitch stream completely taken over by a stranger on the internet.

While Lilypichu has amassed over a million followers in her time streaming on Twitch, the popular personality hasn’t quite steered clear of security breaches on the platform.

Leaking private information is one common mistake, but having a complete stranger overrun a Twitch stream is a whole different beast. Here’s how the casual June 4 broadcast played out.

Lilypichu was just as surprised as her viewers to learn that her Twitch channel was live.

How was Lilypichu’s stream hijacked?

A stream key is a unique code exclusive to each and every streamer on Twitch, Mixer, and other platforms. Sharing this critical information will give others complete access to your broadcast. This is exactly what happened to Lilypichu, the only difference being that her stream key was never made public.

Seemingly out of nowhere, her Twitch stream was taken over by a random individual playing Civilization VI. Somehow, they had gotten a hold of her stream key through pure chance. The bearded fellow now appearing live in front of thousands also seemed completely oblivious to what was happening.

Fellow OfflineTV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan, quickly discovered the short-lived takeover. “Someone took her stream key and he doesn’t even realize it, he’s just live on her account,” he explained.

After a few short minutes of civilized entertainment, her account was back in control and the stranger was gone. The internet celebrity later took to Twitter, giving her take on the random-chance event. 

“Hello, I believe everything is fine now,” she said. I don’t know how he got my stream key but I reset everything. Dude was just vibing and watching Airbender. He’s got good taste.”

Not too long after Lilypichu was back streaming Minecraft as though nothing had even happened. “I didn’t feel like playing Civ 6 anymore,” she joked when turning the stream back on.

With her stream key reset, it’s likely this won’t happen again anytime soon. Perhaps the stranger will never even know that he was broadcasting to thousands of viewers on this random occasion.


Pokimane slams Fedmyster’s second OfflineTV document: “Who asked?”

⁠Former Offline TV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan has released yet another lengthy Google Doc regarding the accusations of misconduct against him from OTV streamers, claiming he wants to “move on” from the drama.

Fedmyster was released from OTV in June 2020, after streamers LilyPichu, Yvonne and Pokimane levied accusations of harassment and inappropriate conduct against him.

Following these accusations, it seemed that all was resolved, with Fed having been removed from the group as a result; but a Google Doc seemingly leaked from the disgraced streamer in late November, which set off a chain reaction of outrage across the internet.

In the leaked November document, Fed appeared to accuse Pokimane of not being honest about their relationship to her viewers, and included screenshots of private text messages between them.

While Pokimane went on to respond to this document, saying he’d admitted his guilt, Fedmyster released yet another lengthy statement on December 1, claiming that he had actually never intended to release the original Doc. Instead, he explained that it had actually been a “form of therapy for myself, to address my concerns about the way Poki portrayed me in her stream.”

Fedmyster also purported that a formerly-trusted member of his community had leaked the document, leading to a “violent breach of my trust and against my wishes as I’ve been working hard to grow, heal, and move on from everything.”

The leaked document of Fedmyster’s in November had been titled “My Truth,” and mostly centered around his relationship with Pokimane.

The former streamer likewise addressed allegations that he had attempted to get Yvonne fired from the group due to her accusations against him. Denying that he had ever wanted her kicked from the crew, he claims that his concerns were due to her “lack of excitement and willingness to help with OfflineTV projects when it’s the only reason she’s in the house.”

He included several other explanations regarding his text messages with Pokimane, as well as his portrayal of Jodi toward Poki, who he apologized for, “painting her to Imane in such a poor light.”

Fedmyster ended his document by claiming that he wants “to move on and start a new chapter in my life,” hoping to put the issue to rest once and for all.

Pokimane has since responded to the document with a scathing tweet, writing, “Who asked lol.”

Fedmyster’s long document has been met with similar reactions from readers online, marking yet another episode of an ongoing incident between some of Twitch’s top content creators.
