A live streamer was broadcasting via YouTube when her (perhaps former) partner instructed to turn it off or he would kill her, and later telling her to “not look depressed or sad or I’ll kill you.”

The growth of live streaming in recent years has not been limited to video games, but also what is called ‘In Real Life’ or “IRL” streaming, where people broadcast their daily activities.

YouTube streamer known as ‘Sweet Erin’, who has just over ten thousand subscribers on her channel, was live on May 11th when the incident occurred.

The initial broadcast VOD (video on demand) has now been taken down, but a clip of the stream catches the moment when the man first makes the threat.

It seems the threatening behaviour of the man was known to the stream beforehand also, as a donation claims they will phone the police on her behalf.

The man can then be heard in the background saying:

“Turn off your stream now. Turn it off. [Wait, why?] I’m going to kill you. You fucking piece of [inaudible].”

Viewers of the stream have said that following this, the camera fell from her hand and the broadcast abruptly ended.

A short time later, it is estimated about 10 minutes or so, the stream came back on again. ‘Sweet Erin’ looked physically unharmed, but the threats continued.

“You better not looked depressed or sad or I’ll kill you.”

Erin then addressed her viewers, telling them not to worry about her and clarifying the situation. She is clearly distressed however, and seems to want to ensure people that was happening was nothing serious, despite the threats.

She also says that she can be “very obnoxious”.

“You guys, don’t worry. Basically, things get out of context – no, I didn’t fake death, or murder. What you guys need to understand, – you know honestly, I’d rather be dead than [inaudible].

I don’t even know why I’m live streaming now, I shouldn’t be but. The only reason I had to stop streaming was because, you have to understand that when you do a live stream like this, it creates huge dramas that aren’t necessarily people’s true character and what they really mean.

I am in a very bizarre situation because, my family has been very rude – oh my god I can’t do this. This is just pointless. Basically, I have gotten into many crazy fights with people before, and just because you are fighting with somebody doesn’t actually mean that they are actually going to do something bad to you.

There are figures and expressions of speech that people use when they don’t actually mean it. As everybody obviously knows, I’ve had a complicated situation with my former relationship. But when you end a relationship, there are many loose ends to tie up, and I can be very obnoxious, and you know, I have a big issue with not listening.”

Some have suggested that the situation is fabricated or scripted, however it her reaction seems fairly organic and so would lead us to believe it is not staged.

“Sweet Erin” later tweeted saying that she was well and thanking people for support.

How or if the situation was resolved is unknown.

AOC recruits Pokimane & Hasan for Among Us Twitch stream

U.S. politician Alexandria ‘AOC’ Ocasio-Cortez nearly broke Twitter when she asked, completely out of the blue, if anyone would want to play Among Us with her on Twitch – and none other than Pokimane and Hasan the Hun seem to be some of the chosen few to get a shot.

AOC serves as U.S. Representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, and while she also moonlights as a League of Legends player, she hasn’t yet tried her hand at the hit party game ‘Among Us.’

That all seems set to change though, based on the explosion of responses, replies, and offers to play she’s received on Twitter after asking if anyone would be interested in inviting her to join their lobby.

“Anyone want to play Among Us with me on Twitch to get out the vote?” AOC asked on Twitter. “(I’ve never played, but it looks like a lot of fun.)”

One of the more than 7,000 people to reply (at the time of writing) was Twitch’s own Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys, who said “it’d be an honor” to play with her, and even offered to help the representative set up her stream if she needed any help at all.

AOC told Poki she would be creating an account and getting some streaming equipment “today” (Oct. 19), so this first-ever “get out the vote” Among Us stream seems like it will be happening very soon.

Not one to be left out, fellow Twitch streamer Hasan ‘Hasanabi’ Piker claimed he was already setting up a lobby to get AOC some venting experience.

“Just DMd you. This sounds fun, let’s so it,” the New York politician replied to Hasan’s offer, making this impromptu Among Us event an already star-studded lineup.

Three people do not make a full lobby, though, but based on the insane amount of replies AOC got from users who seem very eager to play with her, they shouldn’t have any problems finding another seven willing participants.

Although she did indicate the stream would be going down as soon as possible when she gets set up, there’s still no official date from anyone about when the Among Us event will happen, but AOC did start her own Twitch channel shortly after talking with Poki and Hasan.
