A small Twitch streamer, with just 1,168 followers, had an incredible reaction to receiving a $50 donation from a viewer while live.

Somjuu, who has been streaming Activision Blizzard’s Overwatch for the last couple of months, refers to himself as “#1 Doomfist NA” in many of his stream titles, implying that he’s the best Doomfist player in North America.

However, during a stream on Wednesday, October 23, somjuu was actually playing as Wrecking Ball when he was hit by a donation that he was absolutely ecstatic with.

As the end of the round was approaching, somjuu received a $50 donation, that left him incapable of playing out the rest of the round.

Although this kind of donation is an everyday occurrence for many big streamers, for an up and coming channel it’s a massive endorsement of their content.

“Oh my god, there’s no way,” he said immediately, clearly excited and in disbelief. “There’s actually no way! Bro… No way! Dude… Thank you!”

The end of the round meant somjuu could focus a bit more on the donation he had just received, but it didn’t really change much, with the streamer still in disbelief.

“$50 bro… there’s no f***ing way bro!” he said, putting his head in his arms and looking sheepishly up at the screen, perhaps to checking to see it had really happened. He promptly made the donator a mod in the stream, and agreed he could use it to get emotes to use in chat.

After pinching and slapping himself in the face, somjuu confirmed to himself that the donation was indeed still there, and did some push-ups to burn off the adrenaline.

When you see the amounts of money some streamers make from their broadcasts, it’s refreshing to see someone up and coming get a decent donation and be so grateful for it. Not every streamer is on the level of Ninja or Tfue, and somjuu is a perfect reminder of where these people started.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
