Pokelawls sends Twitch into meltdown just by eating bubblegum

Popular Twitch streamer Pokelawls triggered his audience when he opened up a roll of Hubba Bubba bubblegum on stream, and devoured it in a way that infuriated anyone who had the misfortune of seeing it.

With streamers so dedicated to their job, it’s not surprising that many choose to eat their meals in front of their live audience, but this often leads to bizarre and utterly strange moments, such as Amouranth eating pasta without chewing, or Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek covering his gaming peripherals in grease while eating a chicken sandwich.

For some though, triggering people with the way they eat is almost like an art form, and former OfflineTV member Pokelawls knew exactly what he was doing when he told his chat he was going to “p*ss them off.”

Twitch: PokelawlsTwitch chat were furious after witnessing Pokelawls’ bizarre eating method.

During his January 8 stream, Pokelawls decided to watch a live broadcast from President Donald Trump to the American nation, explaining that while this wasn’t his regular content, he was interested to see it nonetheless. The streamer was kept waiting though, with the President late, and viewers being repeatedly told that they were just “minutes away.”

While commenting on how some of the U.S. leader’s decisions have annoyed the world, the streamer claimed he had a way that could “p*ss off” the world more than Trump ever could, switching his stream to show only his face as he picked up a pink roll of Hubba Bubba bubble gum.

The Bubba Tape roll is exactly what it sounds like, a rolled-up length of bubble gum that people can unwrap to tear bits off. Pokelawls decided that wasn’t the way to go though, grabbing it out of the carton, and biting through the wrap, much to the utter dismay of his chat.

Unsurprisingly, Pokelawls was absolutely right, with his chat immediately going into meltdown at this brash ignorance of the system, watching in horror as he held up the roll with a massive bite mark in the side of it.

Cries of “NO,” flooded the chat, with plenty disgusted by Pokelawl’s actions. “You animal,” wrote one particularly disgruntled viewer, while many claimed the streamer had gone too far.

Others asked how he even dared to perform such a vile act on stream, while some simply claimed they were done, telling Poke that they were leaving, unable to stomach the atrocity they had just witnessed.

Even his fellow streamers couldn’t believe what they had seen, with Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel stunned, taking a sharp intake of breath as he watched the incident unfold on his stream.

“He did the thing,” the Canadian told his viewers. “You don’t. Even I have vile manners, and what I usually do is eat really long strips until there’s eight to 10 layers left, then eat the core. That’s a crime, dude.”

While Pokelawls pretended to swallow the bubblegum, he eventually revealed that he hadn’t, explaining that it would have been “too far” even for him. The streamer also revealed that he had originally intended to post an image on Twitter, but decided to do it live so he could annoy people in real-time.

His plan certainly worked, but whether or not anyone will ever be able to forgive him for this senseless act remains to be seen.

Pokimane denies new Fedmyster claims, says he sent “admission of guilt”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has hit back at claims made by former OfflineTV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan in a leaked exposé document, and revealed the disgraced Twitch star sent her what she believes is an “admission of guilt.”

Earlier this year, the OfflineTV house was rocked by accusations of harassment and misconduct leveled at former editor-turned-personality Fedmyster.

Several members of the Twitch content group, including Lilypichu and Yvonne, detailed how Gaytan would “come to [their] room, drunk” and “massage [their] feet and thighs.” Yvonne also revealed he had “crawled in bed” with her, kissed her cheek, and put his hand up her shirt.

These accusations were compounded when Pokimane claimed Fed had been a “big reason” why she moved out of the house. Fedmyster was subsequently expelled from the OfflineTV house, and removed from the company.

After months of silence from the Twitch streamer, a document leaked online on Nov. 24, which mainly detailed Fed’s relationship with Pokimane. In the unreleased exposé titled “My Truth”, which Dexerto has read copies of, Gaytan, 25, accused Pokimane of “twisting the truth” about their relationship.

Pokimane has now hit back, speaking about the leaked document in a short Twitch stream on Wednesday. In her response, she suggests Fedmyster sent her an “admission of guilt” in regards to his “manipulative” actions.

Fedmyster’s leaked doc, “My Truth,” mainly revolves around his relationship with Pokimane.

Fedmyster allegedly sent Pokimane “admission of guilt”

Anys, who admitted she’s already seen several versions of the Fedmyster document, doubled down on her previous June 29 claims. According to the Twitch star, Fed’s claim to a potential hookup, Steve, that they were “a thing” was the best example of his manipulation.

“I want to make it clear that, to me, this incident [with Steve] was clearly a mess-up on Fed’s part. I confronted Fed, he apologized… he admitted fault,” she said.

Pokimane revealed she messaged Fedmyster ahead of her ‘tell-all’ stream in June, asking if there was anything she “should maybe leave out.” When Gaytan requested she skip over the incident with Steve at the party, however, she refused.

“He said ‘if you can… leave out the Steve stuff, it’s something I wouldn’t like mentioned.’ I couldn’t leave that out. He asked me not to mention it, and I think that’s an admission of guilt, then later he says ‘that’s not how it went down’.”

Pokimane says Fed’s claims ‘overshadow’ real issue

The problem, she continued, is that Fed has focused on her being a “villain” and leading him on in the leaked document. This focus, which she believes “blows everything out of proportion,” is being used to overshadow the actual OfflineTV accusations.

“Essentially we had trouble being close but managing our friendship, knowing he wanted more, but I always felt I was upfront about it… it really bothers me that in this document he tried to make me out as the bad guy,” Pokimane said.

“Obviously we weren’t on the same page. I hope you guys can see this from my perspective… I didn’t see a future between the two of us. I thought I was always honest. Looking back, I should have been more aware of how I acted around him, but hindsight is 20/20!

“To me, in all honesty, all of this is just not important. It’s regular 20-year-old relationship bullsh*t. What I shared about the situation is my honest truth, and it’s totally irrelevant to the actual incidents that triggered all of this.”

Fedmyster says he “stands by document”

Fedmyster has addressed the leaked document too; according to the disgraced Twitch star, he had no plans to release the exposé, because it felt like “airing dirty laundry.”

“[Poki and I] came to agree that keeping things private and making no further statements publicly was what was best for us…We wanted to heal and prevent any further harm to the people involved,” he explained in a short Twitter post.

“On the topic of whether I tried to manipulate our friends to hate her, I still fully stand behind what my document reads but I want to emphasize that it wasn’t my intention to shine Poki in a bad light… I am deeply sorry, and wish I wasn’t so naive and insensitive.”

Fedmyster also said he “still believes [he] was mischaracterized,” but added “after talking to Poki I came to understand her perspective. My outlook on the situation as a whole now comes from a better place of understanding.”

Hours after finishing her stream, Anys took to her second Twitter account, where she said she was “looking forward to moving on” from the whole situation.

“Sorry, td was tough, it’s hard for me to reply to v private things without making the situation messier + I was not in a good headspace,” she wrote. “ty to those that were understanding. looking forward to moving on.”

Yvonne and Lilypichu, who were the first to level harassment allegations against Fedmyster, have not yet publicly addressed the leaked document.
