Popular Twitch streamer DrLupo’s May 27th stream ended in uncomfortable manner when a donator said that he was thinking about ending his life.

DrLupo is currently best known for his fun filled Fortnite Battle Royale streams but he has often played other titles in the past and has built a strong community and fan base.

Viewers regularly donate and ask DrLupo for life advice but the end of his stream on May 27th ended with him receiving one of the most concerning donation messages a content creator can ever receive.

One of his fans, Davy_wavy10, donated with a message saying that he was “ending it all” and donating the last of his money to his favorite streamer, a comment that DrLupo took very seriously and implored his fan not to act upon.

“Please don’t do that. Please don’t do that, please find somebody, reach out to somebody right now, talk to them. Please talk to somebody. There are better alternatives than that, okay?”

He went on to tell Davy that he expects to hear from him in the morning, asked him to call a suicide helpline, and stated that he expected to see him in the chat during his Monday morning stream.

After finishing his stream, DrLupo took to Twitter to reiterate his points and ask anyone that is “considering options” to escape their pain to talk to someone instead.

He then once again shared the number for the United States’ National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 1-800-273-8255.

We’re delighted to say that Davy did join DrLupo’s morning stream on Monday, May 28th, after emailing DrLupo the night before to thank him.

However, the entertainer’s statements about reaching out to someone still hold true and apply to anyone that might be feeling in a similar way.

If you are from the UK and looking for somebody to talk to, please contact the Samaritans.

Mike Majlak reveals why he’s broken up with Lana

Mike Majlak and Lana have been the sweethearts of the internet world for quite some time, but their relationship is officially over, with Mike Majlak breaking the news on YouTube.

Mike and Lana have been in a relationship together for ten months. It’s been a widely publicized roller coaster ride filled with ups and downs. However, it was one that many mutual fans loved to see.

It was also the only relationship Majlak has been involved in throughout the past decade. But sadly, not all relationships can stand the test of time, and the two of them have officially parted ways.

Mike Majlak broke the news in a YouTube video. “Never thought id ever put out a breakup video but this one was necessary,” he said. “I wanted the story told my way before others could tarnish what was an incredible relationship and part of my journey.”

In the video, Mike Majlak explains that he felt like the fans deserved an explanation since the breakup happened out of the blue. “There’s no one specific reason [for the breakup],” he said. “It wasn’t a loyalty thing.”

“The best thing about Amara [which is her real name] is that she’s so fiercely loyal,” he added. “I never once had to worry about her cheating [or] talking to any other guys. It was never about other guys.”

His comment immediately shuts down rumors and accusations that she cheated on him. It’s often the first thing people suspect when there’s a sudden breakup.

Instead, he claimed they were simply “two people who wanted vastly different things.”

“Amara was… obsessed with the idea of linear and traditional life and love,” he said. “She wanted to meet a guy, she wanted to settle down, she wanted to have a family and just live this kind of linear life.”

“That’s just not who I am,” he said. He also claimed she was “trying to facilitate the vision that she saw for the relationship, which was getting a house and moving in with her.”

However, while it made “made complete sense to her,” it didn’t to him, and it didn’t feel right to go ahead with it. 

In the end, there were too many signs that they wanted “two vastly different things in life” and “weren’t cut out to be together” and “go the distance.”

The breakup has been hard on them both, so to make things easier, they’ve been trying not to talk and keeping their distance.

It’s a sad end for one of the more beloved internet couples in recent times, but it’s certainly not a bitter one. The two of them have clearly thought long and hard about the decision.

In the end, it seems like calling it quits made the most sense in the long run, but they’ve parted ways on good terms.
