Popular Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris is one of the better-known personalities on the platform, boasting over 2.5 million followers – but not all of these followers are part of his fan base, a fact that he ranted about in a heated Tweet on July 12.

With a huge fanbase comes an equally large amount of trolls, not all of whom are actually concerned with streamers’ content.

Sodapoppin popped off about this fact on Twitter, decrying toxic viewers who make it their mission to point out a streamer’s viewcount, rather than actually watching their stream.

“Viewers who pay more attention to streamers’ view counts than the streamers need to find other things to do,” Morris wrote. “I’m banning like 100 people a day that not only talk about my viewcount, but others, too. Sometimes obviously there’s exceptions, but most of the time… it’s more of a why do you care thing.”

Sodapoppin wasn’t alone in his views, either: several other top personalities came out in support of his statement, with World of Warcraft streamer ‘Asmongold’ echoing Morris’ sentiments.

“I permaban almost anyone who mentions viewer count in a negative way,” Asmongold replied. “It’s like a mining canary for toxic spergs.”

Fortnite pro ‘Svennoss’ likewise chimed in on the discourse, writing, “It’s mostly coming from people that can’t pull any viewers as well. A form of jealousy when they see you drop from example 20k > 10k. Still knowing that’s a fuckton.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Morris has lashed out at Twitch’s toxic subculture, either: he likewise called the platform a “glorified mental hospital” during a rant in November 2018, dubbing viewers who race to clip moments from popular broadcasts as “mentally ill.”

“Imagine seeing something funny happen on a stream and your first thought is to race to clip it and post it on Reddit for Karma,” he said. “Again, mental illness.”

While Sodapoppin has had ample controversies in the past, the streamer’s thoughts on the subject of toxic viewers appear to be widely accepted by other broadcasters across the net, as Twitch continues to grow in popularity as one of the biggest livestreaming platforms online.

TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Addison Rae were once the internet’s most buzzed-about couple; but after the two broke it off in September, it’s been unclear whether they might get back together in the future.

It’s been almost a year since ‘Braddison’ took the net by storm; The two influencers frequently appeared in each other’s TikToks and social media posts, quickly sparking rumors that the two were dating on the down-low.

While they never confirmed their relationship status — with Addison even claiming they were not involved, whatsoever — the two broke off whatever was going on between them “off social media,” leaving shippers in shambles.

However, it’s clear that Bryce Hall isn’t over his pseudo-romance with Rae (who is one of TikTok’s highest-earning creators), as evidenced by a lie detector test taken in collaboration with the Vlog Squad’s Jason Nash.

It’s worth noting that polygraph tests are not always correct, with a report from the National Academy of Sciences claiming that there is “little basis for the expectation that a polygraph test could have extremely high accuracy.”

That didn’t stop the Sway House from taking the test for entertainment purposes, anyway, prompting Nash to ask the question on everyone’s minds: “Do you want Addison back?”

Hall initially laughed at the query but openly admitted that he did, indeed, want to get back with the Southern belle — prompting the test proctor to announce that his statement was, in fact, true.

(Topic begins at 4:27)

Needless to say, this caused quite an outrage among the Sway House members, with Josh Richards even getting up from the sofa to run out of the room yelling, “Oh my god! Holy s**t!”

It’s unclear whether or not ‘Braddison’ will ever be a thing again: Considering that Addison seems to keep her love life close to the chest, as well as being constantly harassed on social media, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the two keep a potential rekindling of their romance off the books.

For now, all fans can do is watch and wait for a response from Rae after Hall’s soul-baring answer to one of TikTok’s most burning questions.
