IRL Twitch streamer AverageHarrry has gone viral for all the wrong reasons after a group of people openly laughed at him in public.

The young streamer, who was on vacation, was hanging out in a hotel lobby chatting with his viewers when suddenly a group started chuckling amongst themselves.

Off-screen, a woman in hysterics can be heard talking about “people who take selfies” right as she spotted AverageHarrry sitting down on a chair in the lobby.

Without warning, the woman blurted out “look at that kid” as the group continued to laugh and eventually walked out of the room, leaving Harry quite upset.

After a few moments of silence and some proverbial Fs in the chat, the streamer buried his head in his hands.

“They just laughed at me,” he meekly murmured. “They just laughed at me.”

It’s not clear exactly what was so funny about Harry talking with his viewers, but it may have been a result of a previous joke amongst themselves that was amplified by the streamer’s presence.

They walked by without ever apologizing.

“They looked at me and just laughed,” the saddened streamer softly said. “Oh my God.”

Heartbroken over how he was treated, Harry leaned back in his seat and tried to collect his thoughts. “I think I should just end my streaming career. There’s no point, I’m never going to live this moment down.”

Luckily, the streamer was able to go right back at it and didn’t actually decide to end his streaming career as he joked. And it’s a good thing too, as the clip has since gone viral.

Since being uploaded on October 27, the clip of the strangers laughing at Harry has been viewed over 200,000 times. According to the third-party stat-tracking site Twitch Metrics, this has also earned the streamer nearly 200 new followers.

Hopefully, the rest of Harry’s vacation goes super well and he doesn’t end up being the butt of any more jokes by random strangers in hotels.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Sienna Mae Gomez is a California-based TikTok star who has seen exponential growth in popularity during the late summer/early autumn of this year.

Although she is only sixteen years old, she has already grown a sizeable platform due to her entertaining dance videos and content advocating for body positivity. She currently has 10.7 million followers on TikTok and 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

While some TikTok stars gained their platform over time, Mae’s rise to TikTok stardom was fairly rapid, with TheNetline reporting that she gained 1.5 million TikTok followers in two weeks.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
