LIRIK explodes on impatient Twitch viewer: “whiny little brat”

Popular Twitch streamer Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid hilariously exploded on an impatient viewer who was trying to get him to speed things up during a recent broadcast.

LIRIK, who has nearly 2.5 million followers on the livestreaming platform, has been streaming on Twitch since 2011 and has cemented himself as one of the most popular variety streamers around. He’ll pretty much dabble in anything – be it the hugely-popular GTA RP, DayZ, or even World of Warcraft Classic.

Although he doesn’t use a facecam, Lirik is well renowned as a nice guy, with the most recent example being him turning his viewers’ generosity into a huge giveaway

Despite that though, like plenty of other streamers, he still has to deal with those more ‘entitled’ Twitch viewers who don’t just want to chill out and watch him have a good time.

Lirik, TwitterLirik is one of Twitch’s most popular variety broadcasters.

During his November 15 stream, the popular broadcaster had been gearing up to play the new Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order title when one viewer told him to get a move on.

After spotting the message, LIRIK unloaded on them. “Oh, I’m really annoying sometimes? Listen Daniel you f**king sh*t, alright. I can do whatever the f**k I want on my stream, alright,” he started.

“If I want to catch up with what the f**k I missed for 45 minutes, you f**king whiny little brat. Do I have to buy you a f**king ice cream so you shut the f**k up in the chat, you little f**king  sh*t, huh?”

The streamer wasn’t finished there, though, as he continued with his verbal barbs for a little while longer. “I can’t imagine what your mom thinks. Always f**king bugging her for sh*t too, huh, because you can’t wait 45 f**king minutes, alright. 

“I just showed you 45 f**king minutes of some fresh new sh*t that you can look forward to in life, you stupid f**k,” he added. “Now we’re going to play the game you whiny little sh*t, give him a f**king pacifier.”

Of course, it didn’t take LIRIK all that long to switch back into his usual, chill self, as he dove into the brand-new Star Wars title. 

Yet, it might just serve as a warning to anyone who thinks that they can try and demand something from his stream moving forward.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez broke records with her debut Twitch stream as she laughed and bumbled her way through Among Us and the internet couldn’t get enough. Now, she’s all set to do it once again with some massive names joining up for the big return.

It wasn’t the biggest individual stream Twitch has ever seen ⁠— that honor remains with Ninja and Drake ⁠— but Ocasio-Cortez, fondly nicknamed AOC, came awfully close when she went live on Oct. 28 for more than 439k eager viewers.

The huge stream, backed by AOC’s desire to “sell the vote” to gamers, scribed the US representative into Twitch’s history books. It also left the internet hungry for more ⁠— AOC’s bubbly personality and funny wit had endeared her to millions.

For weeks eager viewers were left pondering when she’d make her return. Now, we finally have a solid date locked in and even know some of the names she’ll be streaming with. Here’s everything you need to know about AOC’s upcoming return to Twitch.

AOC confirms second Twitch stream

The internet at large has been baying for AOC to hit that “go live” button again sooner rather than later. Now her electoral race is won and her sights can shift back over to Twitch.

Despite some earlier teases, it’s been just over a month since the first historic broadcast, but now we have a date for the next one. AOC will be going live on Twitch on Friday, November 27 at 4 PM PT | 7PM EST.

Last time, Ocasio-Cortez streamed mid-week, on a Tuesday and the spectacle ran for just a few hours. Expect a similar duration this time around given the late evening start time.

What will AOC play? League, Among Us, Fall Guys

AOC hasn’t yet branched out to anything other than some Among Us gameplay. It’s a casual experience that anyone can jump into, so it removes any busywork from her broadcasts.

Last time she paired up with fellow US rep Ilhan Omar, Pokimane, and more on InnerSloth’s smash-hit. It appears that she’ll be doing much the same this time around, but with a few fresh faces.

Canadian Member of Parliament Jagmeet Singh will be getting into the mix, as will popular Twitch streamers Hasan and Northernlion.

However, the New York politician could also try her hand at League of Legends on-stream down the line. Pokimane said she would “be here anytime [AOC] needed,” to which Ocasio-Cortez suggested LoL.

“League duo bot?! Except I haven’t played in months, I’m gonna be real bad,” AOC joked on Twitter in reply to Pokimane. “Maybe Among Us again, for a bit.”

A League of Legends stream certainly makes sense; Pokimane first made her name on LoL, and AOC is a self-confessed League lover, though she says she’s not played it “a whole lot.”

She must have played a bit at least, though, because on Nov. 14 ⁠— a month after revealing she was Bronze V ⁠— she shared on Instagram she had been promoted to Silver IV, one whole ranked tier higher. That’s some serious grinding!

The 31-year-old mainly plays Sona, Janna, Lux, and Morgana, and is “working on Lulu” to add to her champ pool; Pokimane will have to play ADC if they duo queue. Perhaps with her second stream now locked in, a special LoL broadcast could be right around the corner as well.

AOC's second Twitch stream could be another record-breaking broadcast.
