TwitchCon 2019 is finally upon us, with top streamers from across the globe gathering in one place for an action-packed weekend of live streamed shenanigans – but one streamer was so moved by the festivities that she found herself in tears.

TwitchCon 2019 is throwing down in San Diego, California, with online personalities from all around the world making an appearance at the site’s biggest meetup of the year.

The gravity of this event was not lost on one Twitch streamer, who had an emotional reaction to taking part in the festivities – as well as a major host from a fellow broadcaster.

TwitchTwitchCon 2019 is throwing down in San Diego – but it’s not all smiles for every streamer.

Popular Korean streamers “HAchubby” and “Angelskimi” sent a 10k raid toward the streamer, who teared up at their huge act of kindness. Combined with traveling to a massive event like TwitchCon for the first time, it makes sense that just about anyone would get a bit emotional.

This caused the streamer to openly weep in public as she walked down the street, prompting a concerned reaction from fellow streamer “Yuber,” who stopped in his tracks to check up on the situation.

FreepikOne Twitch streamer lost control of her emotions – but not for the reason that a bystander initially thought.

“Why are you crying?” Yuber asked. “Are you alright?”

“I’m okay,” she answered with a smile. “I’m happy.”

However, due to her accent, the streamer almost sounds like she’s saying “have [to] pee” – prompting Yuber to ask, “You have to pee?” in a hilarious segment that cracked her up (along with anyone else watching the exchange).

“No – happy, happy!” she clarified. “Happy cry.”

The streamer went on to state that this was her first time attending TwitchCon, explaining her emotional response.

However, not everyone is pleased with this year’s event: in fact, multiple attendees expressed outrage over the Twitch Partner party on September 26, noting that a slew of drinks were left unattended at the bar – allowing anyone with bad intentions to drug the drinks, given the chance.

“It’s a huge health and safety concern,” streamer Anne Munition wrote. “…I’ve heard many stories from friends and other partners about being drugged at past partner parties.”

Despite this controversy, it’s no secret that a massive showdown like TwitchCon can be a positive experience for congoers, as seen in the streamer’s weepy response to finally attending the event for the very first time.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
