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?

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
