Popular Twitch streamer and NBA 2K player ‘GirlGamerShay’ has come under intense scrutiny after mocking the Make-A-Wish foundation during a recent live broadcast.

The Make-A-Wish foundation, a nonprofit organization, helps grant the “wishes” of children from 2 and a half to 17 years old with terminal illnesses, and is widely known for wrangling high-profile celebrities for wholesome meet-and-greets with the sick youngsters.

A charitable organization responsible for bringing happiness to terminally ill kids, Make-A-Wish has received ample praise for its mission since its founding in 1980 — but one Twitch streamer mocked the Foundation during an August broadcast.

GirlGamerShay was in the 2K lobby when she took shots at the org. “Yo, what the f**k is that ‘Make-A-Wish?’” she asked, before shouting, “‘I’m gonna go to Florida! Let’s wish for that!’ ‘Let me make a wish because I am sick.’ Oh my god, man.”

Needless to say, Shay’s comments received a slew of backlash from viewers and fellow streamers alike, including high-profile personality LosPollosTV, who once held the record for Twitch’s longest continuous live stream.

“Idk who tf this is… but f**k this b***h,” he said of the clip from her stream, which quickly went viral across social media. “Idc if u get some clout you’re a fuckin weirdo,” he continued. “Making fun of a f***kin’ Make-A-Wish kid? Just delete your whole s**t…”

LosPollosTV decries GirlGamerShay's comments on Make-A-Wish.

Twitch star Los Pollos TV chimed in on the subject, decrying GirlGamerShay’s comments on the Make-A-Wish foundation.

“I have no words man, makes me sick to my stomach,” another commenter chimed in. “Man, wtf is wrong with people?”

Shay has since published an apology, claiming that she did not know what the Make-A-Wish foundation was at the time of her stream. However, some internet sleuths have found evidence to the contrary, replying to her apology post with a screenshot of her commenting, “Respect” in response to a the 2K team’s involvement in one child’s “wish” in May of this year.

The streamer has since released several concerning tweets that some feel could allude to harmful behavior, writing, “Thinking about doing something I should do. GG. Y’all won’t ever see me. Y’all got it.”

“Already got a f***ed up family,” she tweeted. “What’s left for me.”

Thus far, Shay has yet to update fans and critics as to her condition, hearkening to a similar scenario regarding the backlash around streaming star Alinity Divine, who admitted that the hate she received after tossing her cat over her head made her consider suicide.

LosPollosTV has since retracted his original tweets calling out Shay.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
