As live streaming grows in popularity, more and more internet personalities are stepping into the limelight, thanks to platforms like Twitch and Mixer – but online fame isn’t always sunshine and roses, as streamer “nanerboots” made clear to one vulgar fan.

Although being a popular streamer has its perks, it also comes with a slew of unique difficulties, with problematic fans an even fellow streamers sometimes taking things too far and making inappropriate claims about their favorite personalities.

However, not every internet troll gets off Scott-free with such comments: streamer and cosplayer Nanerboots made sure of that, calling out one such troll during an August 27 broadcast in a brutal tirade.

The fan in question, a fellow streamer named “BradKozyLive,” claimed that he’d gotten timed out of the chat for simply saying “hi” – a claim that nanerboots quickly debunked, exposing the fan for allegedly making a slew of vulgar comments about her.

“There are so many things about you that are just really shitty,” she began. “Like the fact that you were on your stream saying that you were going to Tier 3 sub to me, slide into my DMs, and that you were gonna come to Toronto and fuck me.”

That wasn’t the end of her spiel, by far: the streamer even claimed that “Brad” had bragged about running a “train” on her, and tore into his comments by thoroughly rejecting him in front of her entire audience.

“And then you said everyone could run a train on me, so that is why my chat doesn’t like you,” she continued. “Because you’re a trash human being and you’re actually disgusting. I would never, ever touch you. I don’t even find you remotely attractive. …I turned you down immediately.”

With Twitch streamers being such forward facing figures, Nanerboots’ scathing rejection likewise came as a warning to other fans looking to make similarly vile comments – and with BradKozyLive having yet to respond to the matter via social media, its safe to say that she got her point across in a brutal way.

Don’t mess with this streamer!

Twitch star Jake “JakeNBake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

JakeNBake is the latest Twitch streamer to be caught up in the DMCA drama.

JakeNBake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is JakeNBake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

JakeNBake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

JakeNBake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on JakeNBake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned Abramson could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Abramson, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to clear his entire video back-catalog in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

JakeNBake also plans to counter-claim, but admitted he was “scared.”

“My fear is if I counter-claim this, and some computer in China turns around at me and just goes ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you,’ and starts pinging me for everything I’ve ever done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
