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.

LIRIKLIRIK is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers.

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.

Former Vine star Patrick Perkins has cleared up a myth about an iconic meme years after it first took the internet by storm.

While Vine shuffled its mortal coil in 2016, many of its biggest stars have carried on with short-form comedy on YouTube and now TikTok, including Lele Pons, Liza Koshy, and David Dobrik.

Even now, these short clip compilations still get millions of views on YouTube, and there are still multiple Instagram and Twitter accounts dedicated to them. Several vines have carried on their internet life as memes or gifs and have even been pasted onto merchandise.

The vine in question shows a blonde teenager in glasses blowing a smoke circle using a vape on a desk when the person carrying the camera blows it away. The teen turns to the camera and exasperatedly says “Adam!.”

Adam and Patrick starred in several iconic vines.

Now the star himself has come onto TikTok to confirm some lore surrounding him and his twin brother, which has baffled thousands who never knew the truth.

Another iconic and highly quotable vine involving one of the twins shows them walking into his bathroom in just a pair of boxers saying: “Hi, welcome to chillis.” In another, one of the twins begs viewers to stop comparing him to Chicken Little.

To most people, they look like the exact same person.

However, Patrick has explained in a viral TikTok that they’re actually identical twins. Patrick was the star of the vape video, while the other twin is Adam and the star of the Chilli’s vine. He also showed a picture of them together “since a lot of people don’t believe that there are actually two of us.”

Patrick also posted the video to Twitter and users were bowled over by the new information. One person wrote, “I feel like a different person for knowing this,” while another added, “world-shattering revelations are sometimes just small clarifications I guess.”

In less than 24 hours, Patrick’s tweet has amassed 4,000 likes and continues to grow, bringing back a sense of nostalgia for many and clearing up a long-standing internet myth.
