Popular Twitch streamer Louis ‘LosPollosTV’ Sammartino unleashed both barrels on a DDOSer who was attempting to ruin the end of his world record stream attempt.

Many NBA 2K fans will recognize LosPollosTV as being one of the biggest content creators that the series has seen – though the popular broadcaster, who has over 407,000 followers on Twitch, has branched out to games like Fortnite. 

More recently, the streamer had made a name for himself as he kicked off a ‘sub-a-thon’ on March 29 that, whenever he received a sub, would see the stream last longer than planned. As subscriptions flocked in, LosPollosTV found himself venturing towards the world record for the longest uninterrupted livestream which sat at almost 162 hours.

LosPollosTV is one of Luminosity’s biggest content creators.

On April 5, he managed to smash through that record but didn’t quit there and then. Instead, he wanted to make it a nice whole round number and said he’d stay on-stream until the 200-hour mark.

Though, as that number was in reach, his stream was briefly knocked offline by what appeared to be a DDOS attack. As he returned, LosPollosTV had a message for whoever was behind it. “Even if I was like here’s my IP address, why would you shut off the stream?” he asked. “Like, what kind of hate in your heart do you need to have to try to like end this?”

Yet, the streamer’s anger ramped up as he got a little bit more personal with his verbal jabs. “We f**king beat the record, I don’t give a f**k, you can go f**k yourself and I swear to God dude, this isn’t a joke, if I ever in my life saw you in real life bro, you would not be able to see me again,” the streamer added.

While he wrapped the stream not long after and didn’t manage to reach the 200-hour goal, LosPollosTV thanked everyone who was still watching for doing so.

Just after he went offline though, the streamer acknowledged everyone else with a tweet that simply read: “195 Hours 36 Minutes 17 Seconds” with a love heart attached. 

Though he wasn’t able to reach the goal, the Luminosity streamer will no doubt be back on Twitch at some point – continuing on with his normal streams.

Regardless of the attack ruining the end of stream, LosPollosTV certainly has an accomplishment that he and everyone involved can be proud of – and that no one can take away from him.

Nessa Barrett hits back at attacks telling her to kill herself

TikToker Nessa Barrett has, once again, had to hit out against some of the trolls who harass her online, after their bullying took a sinister turn. 

Barrett has had a difficult few days after becoming unwittingly involved in the Jaden Hossler and Mads Lewis ‘diss track’ drama.

After hinting at a collaboration with Hossler on Twitter, she was accused of ‘shading’ his ex girlfriend and former friend, Lewis by hiding a range of Twitter replies referring to her.

However, judging by her recent Tweets, Barrett has enough problems of her own to concern herself with someone else’s drama, as she opened up about some of the intense abuse she had recently received online on Twitter.

Nessa Barrett appeals to fans to leave her alone.

In a series of Tweets, she appealed to trolls to “stop telling [her] to kill [her]self,” explaining that she doesn’t “need to hear it anymore on top of [her] own thoughts [she] battle[s] everyday.”

Giving an insight to the struggles of being in the public eye, Barrett tells fans that they “have no idea how draining it is.”

Fans have rallied around Barrett following her Tweets.

In response to these raw and honest Tweets, fans on Instagram rallied around the TikToker, with one user saying: “Imagine receiving thousands of death treats I could never — all I have to say is she’s so strong.”

Another user said that the fact that she had to tweet this was “so sad,” while a further user said “TikTok is so toxic damn.”

Nessa Barrett’s mental health battle

Nessa Barrett has bravely spoken out about her experiences with mental health several times in the past. In an August interview with Entertainment Tonight, she opened up about being diagnosed with conditions like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

“I’ve been in therapy for anxiety since I was like, six,” she said at the time.

“And then, when I was about 14, I was misdiagnosed with depression. And then, recently, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.”

Being a singer as well as a TikToker, she channelled a lot of her mental heath struggles into songs such as her debut single ‘Pain,’ which she explains was written during a “really vulnerable time” where, among other things, she was once again receiving a lot of hate online.

She also spoke out on Twitter in September about the “serious” and “personal” nature of her mental health issues after she was filmed crying in a restaurant by celebrity paparazzo Kevin Wong.

Hopefully, Barrett’s latest Tweets will be enough of a wake up call for trolls to stop harassing her when she is already feeling vulnerable.
