Monkey vomits on Sea of Thieves devs during Twitch stream

If you’re going to bring a monkey on your Twitch stream, you should probably make sure it’s trained to a point where it won’t literally vomit all over you. 

That’s exactly what happened during a live stream featuring Sea of Thieves developers Drew Stevens, Joe Neate and Rare’s video community manager Jon McFarlane.

For some reason, they thought bringing a literal monkey on to discuss the Smuggler’s Fortune update and The Pirate Emporium would be a good idea.

A bit over half-way through the broadcast, the monkey, Antonio literally threw up on McFarlane and even got some on his face in what can only be described as one of the most disgusting things to ever happen on Twitch.

Despite his shirt getting covered with monkey vomit, McFarlane didn’t get up or lash out at the animal. But that wasn’t even the worst of it.

After getting cleaned up with wipe, the monkey took a dump while sitting on the poor video manager’s shoulder. It’s downright gross.

For his part, however, McFarlane handled everything like a pro and even uploaded a picture to Twitter with the animal with the caption “He may have puked but he’s still a little cutie.” 

Neate meanwhile joked that having a monkey on was the “best idea ever”. 

Sea of Thieves was released on March 20, 2018 as a Microsoft exclusive to moderate reviews, but still receives updates such as purchasable pets, which explains the reason for the monkey. 

It will be interesting to see what if any action Twitch takes regarding this content being streamed on its platform.

In a 2016 Reddit post, Twitch Support attempted to clear up what was acceptable on its platform. “Cute poop emojis are ok thanks to smartphones. The act of defecation however is not. No defecating and no “shit/shit on” or similar references/depictions,” they wrote.

Where this will fall under is anyone’s guess as it’s unlikely many others have literally had a monkey poop and vomit on them on stream.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
