Popular Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris was left confused after being told he couldn’t play a game he’d already started due to language used later down the line, that could see him falling foul of the platform’s community guidelines. 

While many gaming broadcasters use Twitch to show off their domination in one particular game, plenty of others venture into the world of variety streaming – where they play everything from new releases to whatever is popular at the time.

One of the leading names in this scene is Sodapoppin, who has been streaming since 2011. Unlike some other variety streamers, though, he dives into some of the worst games on offer with his “Sh*tshow Saturday” streams, finding some pretty strange storylines, bugs, and mechanics.

Sodapoppin took a break from Twitch towards the end of 2019 but has since returned.

However, during his January 24 broadcast, he found himself unable to carry on playing ‘Valakas Story’ after being warned about language used in the game that could possibly see him being banned from Twitch. 

“Wait what? I see his message,” the streamer said while looking off stream. “Ok, I’m being told I can’t play this game because there are words in Russian that can’t be said on stream. I’m not even kidding, dead serious.”

Upon hearing this, though, members of his chat began spamming that both Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors and Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel had played through the game themselves on-stream. “Well, they got away with it then, I can’t.”

While his fans tried to convince him to change his mind and ignore whatever warning he had received, Soda said that he didn’t want to risk it and was moving on. “No one understands Twitch’s rules, stream – no one gets it. Sh*t is just really hard to follow.

“All I know is I was told I should reconsider playing it because that game had some slurs that were not really Twitch TOS friendly. You can look at others who played the game and they’re just fine, I’m not going to risk sh*t. I’m just not, it’s not worth it.”

Even though it may have upset many of his viewers to move on from the game, it was pretty clear that Soda wasn’t even going to entertain the idea of returning.

Yet, it wasn’t like he’d just lost hours of progress as he was only a few minutes into Valakas Story and could easily move on to start something else.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was jokingly trolled by fans after they made memes about an embarrassing story he revealed in an interview from years ago.

PewDiePie may be known today as the most popular YouTuber in the world with over 107 million subscribers to his channel. However, in 2010, he was virtually unknown as he was learning to make content while in Sweden.

During his latest upload, a story from Kjellberg’s past came back to haunt him. The star reacted to fans creating memes about an embarrassing shower incident that he revealed in a video he posted a couple years back.

PewDiePie fans dig up hilarious story from his past

During the November 23 episode of Last Week I Asked You, the Swede reacted to fans making memes about a story he had revealed in 2017. “If you are confused by this, don’t ask. Because I’m not saying it again,” the 31-year-old laughed.

When more viewers continued to make jokes about the embarrassing incident, the star exclaimed, “Why did I share this story?! Stop it! I had no choice. I do not control my anus!”

For those baffled by what he is talking about, fans are referencing a story the YouTuber explained in a previous upload from three years ago. When Kjellberg was younger, he got violently sick, and had to go to the bathroom in a shower at a harbor in Sweden.

The embarrassing incident was revealed by the content creator in an in-depth interview he did with his friend in 2017. In the one-hour video, Pewds went over his entire life story and included his triumphs and failures – including the infamous shower story.

“I had eaten something weird that night. I felt it a few hours later [after eating] at the party. And I’m like I need to s**t right now, or else I’m going to s**t myself in front of everybody. So I ran. It was that state of emergency!” he said.

Unfortunately when he reached the public bathroom, there was a massive line of people out the door. “So I told them, “Guys, this is an emergency I need to go!” … But no one would listen to me. So I ran in [to the restroom] anyways and I found a toilet. But it was a shower. So I took a s**t in the shower.”

Hilariously, the entertainer when on to explain that he eventually got a job at the same harbor, and the bathroom incident had became a legend with employees. “I got a job at that very harbor, and they would always tell the story about the man that took a s**t in the shower,” he laughed.

Despite the story being known for a few years now, fans of the content creator have recently been digging it up to make memes. If nothing else, the hilarious tale is a good example of “if you have to go, you have to go.” Kjellberg’s fans, of course, are only teasing him out of love.
