IRL Twitch streamer ‘robcdee’ found himself in a bit of a predicament while visiting Osaka, Japan after a drunk man wouldn’t leave him alone.

Rob was walking down the street at night, minding his own business, when suddenly a man appeared out of nowhere with a drink in hand, ready to strike up a conversation.

“Are you Italy?” the man asked, assuming Rob’s nationality. “I’m Africa.”

The man wouldn’t leave Rob alone.

“You stop,” Rob laughed, but the stranger grabbed hold of his arm. “Where are you going to hang out?”

The streamer was on his way to go under a bridge in an attempt to dispose of a drink can. Japan can be notorious for its lack of garbage bins, even though littering is extremely frowned upon.

“To your wife?” the drunk man asked.

“Yeah, she’s under the bridge too,” Rob answered sarcastically.

Try as he might, the IRL streamer was unable to get away from the man, who kept asking more and more questions and continued to touch him.

“Have a good night, man. See you!” robcdee said, but the drunk man wouldn’t take the hint. He continued to ramble on, not letting the Twitch star get on with his night.

“How do I get out of this?” Rob asked his chat. Just then, he had an epiphany: “I know what to say! I have coronavirus. Be careful. See you.”

Just like that, finally, the streamer was able to get away from the overly-attached man.

“I lied,” he laughed, confessing that he didn’t actually have the virus.

The coronavirus has impacted the entire world in recent weeks, with multiple major events such as E3, the NBA season, Overwatch League and more being either canceled or suspended.

At least Rob found a way to use it as a means to get out of an uncomfortable interaction. It worked well too, as the drunk man let him be after that.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
