Shroud shocks small Twitch streamer with massive donation

Twitch is the home of popular games and also some great IRL content, but not many people who perform in front of their camera would expect Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek to appear and make a huge donation. But, that’s exactly what he did. 

Streamer Jursh00, who can regularly be seen playing Apex Legends and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 for his viewers, decided to ditch the games for a moment and play his guitar for his audience.

After receiving just six cents in bits from viewers after putting together an unbelievable solo with his instrument, one of the best Apex Legends players around decided to chime in with his own, very generous, donation. 

DreamhackShroud is the most popular Apex Legends streamer on Twitch right now.

Shroud clicked onto the clip of the solo during a stream on March 18, as seen below, and was sad to see the lack of bits that the guy had received for his work. 

So, he decided to make a 25,000 bit donation of his own – which is worth $250.  

“I can’t believe it!” Jursh100 tweeted, clearly shocked about what had happened. “Shroud watched a guitar solo clip of mine on stream and then donated 25000 bits to me afterwards! Thank you, Shroud.” 

Shroud recently reached an incredible streaming landmark as well, having hit over 100,000 subscribers on Twitch, and has made several generous donations since – such as donating $2,500 to a lady who was recently diagnosed with cancer, to help pay for her medical bills. 

Jursh00 was the most recent beneficiary of the top streamer’s generosity and, as we’ve seen in the past, this is part of what makes him such a popular figure in gaming.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Sienna Mae Gomez is a California-based TikTok star who has seen exponential growth in popularity during the late summer/early autumn of this year.

Although she is only sixteen years old, she has already grown a sizeable platform due to her entertaining dance videos and content advocating for body positivity. She currently has 10.7 million followers on TikTok and 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

While some TikTok stars gained their platform over time, Mae’s rise to TikTok stardom was fairly rapid, with TheNetline reporting that she gained 1.5 million TikTok followers in two weeks.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
