Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek is known for being an incredibly talented player in just about any game he picks up, but his impressive aim came in handy for another reason entirely during a recent Twitch stream!

The Canadian streamer has one of the biggest channels on Twitch, with over five million followers, but he’s still learning new tips and tricks of the trade on a regular basis.

This point was hammered home in hilarious fashion on January 8 when he was playing The Witcher 3 and found himself faced with a nudity scene.

Shroud / TwitchShroud’s is the second most followed streamer on Twitch.

Twitch’s terms of service should protect streamers from receiving bans or suspensions if a game shows a small amount of sexual content alongside the main story, but shroud wasn’t taking any risks and quickly employed one of Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s tactics.

“Wait, chat, brace. Brace! The xQc chat. Get ready, don’t look,” he said, beginning to drag his own facecam across the screen and censor out the breasts! “xQc taught me this one. Woah, woah!”

The entire scene quickly became some sort of aim training course for the shroud, who even commented on it feeling like he was practicing his flick shots as he continued to employ his fellow Canadian’s tactic.

“Okay, we’re good, everything’s fine,” the streamer joked as the nudity in the cutscene came to an end and he was finally able to return his camera to its normal location on the screen.

Shroud and was a professional CS:GO players for a number of years before making the decision to step down from the Cloud9 roster and focus solely on his stream and content creation.

Since doing so, his popularity and fan base has continued to grow. Best known for destroying opponents in battle royale games like Blackout and PUBG, the 24-year-old has also shown that he is open to just about every genre, including games like The Witcher 3.

Instagram star Celina Powell has weighed in on Jeffree Star’s drama with ex-boyfriend Andre Marhold in a dramatic Instagram live with her friend Jasmine.

Although Jeffree Star seemed determined to move on from the Marhold drama in his YouTube return earlier this month – wherein he confirmed that his ex was getting prosecuted for ‘robbing’ him – Celina Powell has added another twist in the tale after making a string of dramatic revelations in her Instagram live.

Claiming she had a conversation with Marhold about Star, Powell said the makeup mogul has nineteen cameras in the house, that the ex-boyfriend “wasn’t even gay” and that he was “only there to have fun in his [Star’s] pool”. He also apparently claimed that Star was the one who robbed him, not the other way round.

According to Powell, Marhold accused Star of being racist among other things.

But that’s not all; calling up her friend, who is only identified as Jasmine, the two also claimed that Andre said the relationship “was all for publicity”, and that he even planned to “blackmail” the YouTuber.

Recalling that Marhold also asked her about NDAs, Celina said she told Marhold that “Jeffree can’t do sh*t” and encouraged him to spill the tea.

This led to Marhold to allegedly make a string of other claims, including Star being a “hater”, disliking fellow beauty YouTuber Nikita Dragun and, echoing accusations from fans in the past, being a “racist”.

She then went on to say that she convinced Marhold to fly to Miami in order to help him “expose” Jeffree before turning the tables on him, saying that she went to Star with this information and telling him “this is the scumbags you have in your life”.

In response, Star relayed her the messages that Marhold had sent him, which includes “thirsty” comments like, “I just want to show you that I appreciate you with all my heart”.

“How can you say you don’t care about this man when you do?” Powell asked.

After coming to Star with Marhold’s plans to expose him, Powell claims that he sent her a range of “thirsty” messages that proves he in fact cares for her.

She ended the IG Live by calling Marhold a “f*cking liar”, saying that “everything he says is a lie”.

Both Star and his ex-boyfriend are yet to speak publicly about this latest development in the saga that’s followed their falling out.
