Twitch star ‘PayMoneyWubby’ has made rival streaming platform Mixer an offer to take him across the pond, but they’re going to have to pay big bucks for it.

PayMoneyWubby is one of the biggest Twitch streamers, with his broadcasts capturing the attention of thousands of viewers every day. However, his suspension on November 15 put the brakes on his channel, and sent the streamer’s fanbase reeling.

Now, Wubby is putting the pressure on the streaming giant, making their biggest rival Mixer an ‘offer’ to join them exclusively.

YouTube: PayMoneyWubbyPayMoneyWubby has made Mixer an “offer” they can’t refuse.

On his November 24 broadcast, Wubby broke down his “friendly” relationship with Mixer, and what it would take for the two to finally become best buddies once and for all.

“Here’s the thing, I want to be your friend,” he said. “We can work something out, we can fake it, but just like your mom said, you are going to have to pay me to be your friend right now. 

“Maybe not for long, things might happen — I might have to change schools and then we have to be friends — but right now, I’ll be your friend to the tune of $5 million for five years. But at this point, that’s where it’s going to stay.”

While buying friends isn’t usually a tactic that works, he’s still looking after his little friend, even finding him a seat in his figurative living room to chill on throughout the rest of his stream.

“I don’t want you to leave, I’m not going to get rid of you, I’m just going to put you on the shelf. You are just going to sit there on that comfy couch.”

The offer was made in jest, but it could be a serious consideration. Since his ban was overturned, he’s come back to Twitch with vengeance, hitting 200,000 followers on November 23, and almost cracking 11,000 subs on November 24.

On a more serious tone though, Wubby commented that Mixer need to be more diverse in the personalities they grab from Twitch. They’ve got a bunch of talented gamers, but they need the big entertainers to really draw the numbers over.

“You can bring the Shroud’s, you can bring the Ninja’s, those guys are replaceable,” he said. “But you need to be bringing the xQc’s, the Poppins’, the Wubby’s, even the f*cking Ludwig’s.

“Shroud hits crazy shots and is incredibly good at video games, but so is every 12 year old on the platform.”

It comes after Wubby was banned from Twitch for five days after breaking the platform’s privacy Community Guideline. The popular Just Chatting streamer was broadcasting in a restaurant he allegedly had permission to do, but Twitch believed he was still invading the privacy of others.

With the streamer wars heating up, Mixer might take Wubby up on that offer, or at least negotiate to secure one of Twitch’s biggest personalities. As he sees it, it’s a pretty good deal, and maybe down the line the two can warm up to become best buddies.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Sienna Mae Gomez is a California-based TikTok star who has seen exponential growth in popularity during the late summer/early autumn of this year.

Although she is only sixteen years old, she has already grown a sizeable platform due to her entertaining dance videos and content advocating for body positivity. She currently has 10.7 million followers on TikTok and 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

While some TikTok stars gained their platform over time, Mae’s rise to TikTok stardom was fairly rapid, with TheNetline reporting that she gained 1.5 million TikTok followers in two weeks.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
