Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek decided to pull out the ban hammer while watching the E3 Expo, when a viewer suggested he was being paid to do so.

The popular Twitch streamer, who has over 6 million followers on the platform at the time of writing, uncharacteristically lost his cool during his June 10 broadcast.


Shroud was checking out some of the upcoming titles that were being advertised by Microsoft at their annual press conference, when one of his subscribers suggested that it was a promotion he was being paid for. It’s fair to say that the viewer’s idea didn’t go down too well with the former CS:GO pro player. 

MicrosoftShroud took a moment on stream to watch Microsoft’s reveal of a new Flight Simulator game.

Shroud took a moment to freeze the video during his livestream, after spotting that a subscriber had been asking about the amount of money that he was being paid to show the event. 


“Hey, where are you? Hey, hey bitch,” he said, before scrolling through the chat and quickly banning the user from his channel. “I’m not getting paid for this, but I wish. Get the fuck out of my chat. [Get] the fuck out of here!” 

The former Cloud9 member was checking out Microsoft Flight Simulator, a game which allows players to become a pilot from the comfort of their own home, and will be made available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers when it first launches in 2020. 

The streamer is clearly interested in the game, going on to search the internet for more details as that part of the presser came to a close, seemingly hungry for more information on the game


Whether or not he will go on to play it in the future is unknown, but with no exact release date given for the game so far, fans could be waiting a while to see him taking to the skies on stream.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.


However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.


“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
