Twitch star Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid revealed that he has a “weird” stalker who has been bombarding his business email for a considerable period of time.
LIRIK has been streaming on Twitch since 2011, amassing over two and a half million followers in that time, and becoming one of the most popular figures in the variety streaming community.
Be it playing something he’s well known for like GTA RP, a new release like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, or battling fellow streamers in UFC, tens of thousands of fans tune into LIRIK’s daily broadcasts. However, it appears one viewer has taken their fandom to the next level and has been ‘stalking’ the American via his business email account.
During his December 7 stream, the popular variety streamer had been starting up a game with some fellow broadcasters when he flat out revealed that he had a stalker.
"Dude, I have this weird f*cking stalker girl who emails my business email every f*cking day for like years,” LIRIK said. Of course, this piqued the curiosity of his fellow streamers who immediately asked for more details – including what type of emails he receives.
LIRIK continued: "I don’t f*cking know. I don’t (respond), it’s been two years but she still does it,"before adding a further “no bro,” when asked again if he had given it the time of day and replied at any point.
Thankfully though, for LIRIK, one of his fellow streamers noted that he could easily just direct those messages to his trash can and not have them clog up his inbox.
“I thought it only goes to spam. Dude you got to tell me (how to do that), it’s fucking weird,” the American concluded, switching away from the topic and heading into his next game.
Seeing as LIRIK only labeled the stalker as “weird,” it’s unknown if its a serious, potentially dangerous situation or just an infatuated super-fan who wants a response.
Either way, though, it seems like his email nightmare may soon be over as he might have learned to consign the messages to the trash can.
