Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzeciek was left shocked by a racist outburst from an intruder in his Discord channel.

After spending most of the weekend playing the Call of Duty Modern Warfare beta, Shroud returned to his regularly scheduled programming of WoW Classic today.

The 25-year-old has had fun with Infinity Ward’s latest release, but has been glued to the Blizzard classic since its release in August. He’s grinding his way to level 60, smashing through all the raids, and having fun reliving years gone by.

While he’s had to deal with some instances of toxicity on his stream in the past, the Twitch star was not ready for the latest user blurting out obscene comments.

Warning: Racism

Shroud has been enjoying WoW Classic, Modern Warfare, and Borderlands 3 on stream recently.

During his September 23 stream, Shroud was busy raiding Onyxia when an unknown user intruded into their Discord call. After getting in, the user started spurting out incredibly racist comments, drowning out the streamer momentarily.

The FPS legend was stunned from the encounter, as he took a step back from the raid to deal with the situation.

“Woah, woah, woah – what the f**k. Okay, we’ve got a rogue in the Discord,” he said. “Guess I’m muting Discord for now.”

People in his raid group immediately called out the comments, with one saying: “Some people are absolutely disgusting human beings.”

There’s not much streamers can do in these situations apart from mute and move on, especially when the instances are out of their control.

“You can’t do anything, it just happens,” Shroud said. “I don’t understand why people do it. They aren’t going to get the streamer in trouble, so why would they even do that? If anyone figures out who you are in the future, you’re f**ked. It’s not worth the risk.”

The raid kicked on though, with the group of 30 taking down Onyxia a few minutes later. It’s not the first time Shroud has had to deal with such behavior on his stream, and it probably won’t be the last, but the former CS:GO pro refused to let it ruin his raid for any longer than necessary.

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.
