On a recent trip to the United States, Korean streamer HAchubby sat down with Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys for a broadcast and shocked the Twitch star with how much her chat has influenced her English skills.

HAchubby was one of the breakout channels of Twitch in 2019, as the lovable personality grew her following by learning to speak English with her viewers.

However, while visiting popular streamer Pokimane, the Korean had the Offline TV member in tears of laughter when she discovered how much chat’s meme culture has influenced her.

HAchubby reveals how much Twitch has influenced her English 

HAchubby made an appearance on the 23-year-old’s stream, where the two discussed a variety of topics, including how she learned English with the help of viewers that tuned into her broadcasts.

Explaining, the Korean exclaimed, “In eight months stream, I’m just learning kappa, MonkaS…” which caused the Offline TV streamer to laugh as she rattled off popular Twitch lingo.

She then pointed out “This is my English! I can’t talk normal human!” which caused her friend to break down into hysterics as she couldn’t stop laughing at how much chat had shaped her second language.

Poki told the streamer that chat is not the best place to learn things, because it’s mostly memes. And instead gave her advice on how to better learn a new language.

“What you need to do is watch English TV with subtitles. It’s so good, and helps so much. If you move to Los Angeles, you would learn English in six months. Done!” she said.

HAchubby seemed shocked by this and exclaimed “seriously?” to which the Twitch star replied “If you are in the environment, so fast!”

Despite English being a second language, HAchubby actually impressed Pokimane with how much she already knew, even if a lot of it was influenced by meme and Twitch lingo.

At the time of writing, the Korean has over 160,000 followers, which is an astonishing number considering a year ago she had under 600 viewers, making her growth all the more impressive.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
