Twitch star Chance “Sodapoppin” Morris is one of the site’s biggest content creators, but he isn’t sold on the idea of meet and greets with fans, as revealed in a January broadcast.

With the rise of online entertainment, many internet stars hold meet and greets with their fanbases at big events such as TwitchCon, VidCon, PAX, etc…

Although these fan interactions can lead to some hilarious moments (as seen when one fan asked Pokimane out on a date during TwitchCon 2019), some entertainers aren’t big on these kinds of experiences.

Twitch star Chance “sodapoppin” Morris isn’t a fan of meet and greets, which he explained during a January broadcast.

Sodapoppin is one such personality, as he explained his reasoning for disliking one-on-one fan meet and greets after a viewer asked him to visit his European audience.

According to Morris, he finds himself having similar conversations with his fans every time, leading to a rather boring experience for both himself and his viewers.

“I don’t care to do meet and greets, man,” he admitted. “I’ll do it every now and then, but eventually it’s just the same convo over and over. I guess I like giving back here and there, but outside of that, I personally don’t enjoy it.”

While the streamer went on to joke about fake illicit activities at TwitchCon Europe, he likewise claimed that he doesn’t enjoy watching streamers meet their fans during live broadcasts, citing a recent fan interaction filmed on Greekgodx’s channel.

“As a viewer, I didn’t care to watch it,” he continued. “I don’t give a sh*t to see some person I don’t know get a selfie with a streamer who was trying to stream. I just don’t care to see it. I don’t give a f**k. Maybe that’s really mean.”

Sodapoppin is somewhat known for his divisive opinions, having called out both Twitch viewers and gamers numerous times beforehand, so his latest take on meet and greets comes as little surprise to regular viewers.

Considering his desire to produce interesting streams and have genuine conversations with fans, his opinion isn’t necessarily without merit. What do you think of Sodapoppin’s take on meet and greets? Do you agree with him?

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
