MOONMOON pokes fun at “lonely” Twitch subs “looking for a dopamine rush”

One of the most popular streamers on all of Twitch, MOONMOON is never one to shy away from toeing the line and joking about the platform he’s on, as his most recent rant targeted “lonely” viewers seeking attention through subscriptions. 

With over 800,000 followers on Twitch and almost always housing tens of thousands of viewers at any given time, MOONMOON is one of the most prolific variety streamers on the platform.

Never scared to share his opinions in the most amusingly exaggerated ways possible, his latest hot take focused on the new hype-train feature on Twitch that he believes helps promote an unhealthy relationship between viewers and content creators.

MOONMOON initially grew in popularity on Twitch due to his early Overwatch streams.

In the midst of a Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot broadcast on January 20, the streamer paused his game and hilariously started blaring Sarah McLachlan’s ‘In The Arms Of An Angel’ to set the tone before giving his sarcastic speech.

“Every day… there is a Twitch chatter who will use their dinner money on subscribing to a Twitch streamer, and they’ll go hungry.”

Addressing the entire Twitch community, not just those tuned in to his broadcast, the streamer continued to list off over the top examples of viewers sacrificing everything just to grab the attention of their favorite content creators.

“Every day… a lonely man in search of a dopamine release will gift five subs to a random online, neglecting his family, his friends, his kids.”

Exaggerating the issue even further, the recently implemented hype-train feature promotes such behavior to an extent that appears to have made MOONMOON uncomfortable. Incentivizing more subscriptions and bit donations in exchange for unique unlockables and a higher-tier in the hype-train, the feature was introduced on January 9.

Jokingly seeking to raise awareness of the issues that the new hype-train feature help to promote, he expressed how such a pervasive problem should be taken to the higher-ups at Twitch immediately.

“It’s important that we as a community can address this predatory design and take it all the way to the top and show Twitch that we will not be taken advantage of.”

Whether the executives over at Twitch will listen to one of the most popular streamers on their platform, or continue to incentivize rewards for excessive subscriptions and donations remains to be seen.

Feigning deep concern for those who seek the recognition of Twitch streamers like himself, MOONMOON clearly wants to invoke a change to the status quo on the platform.

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
