Streamer goes to bizarre lengths to prove his socks are clean

Twitch streamer NoHitJerome went to some rather bizarre lengths to prove that the socks he was using as a towel were actually clean after drenching himself with water during a hardcore session of World of Warcraft.

Be they big or small, streamers can do some pretty interesting and wild things to entertain their fans during a Twitch broadcast. 

Dr Disrespect is one of the most notable with his Champions Club ad breaks, dance sessions, and mini-skits, but for someone like NoHitJerome who is yet to hit the levels of people like The Doc, their on-stream moments can end up being downright bizarre in a bid to entertain a handful of viewers who are all spamming the same messages.

NoHitJerome can regularly be found playing World of Warcraft on Twitch.

So, during his January 19 broadcast, NoHitJerome – who can usually be found streaming World of Warcraft – dove into those bizarre depths. As he danced along to some heavy music while sat in his chair, he declared that he needed a quick water break.

Though, when he got back, he didn’t exactly gulp a bottle down. Instead, he covered his head with a full glass before taking a drink of a cup and slobbering it all down his chest – leaving him soaking and needing to clean things up before he headed back into his marathon World of Warcraft session.

His answer to cleaning things up wasn’t exactly a towel. Instead, he grabbed a pair of socks and started using them to clear up the water that had drenched his clothes. However, some viewers claimed that they weren’t the cleanest pair he could have grabbed.

“They’re not dirty, they’re completely normal socks. They’re not dirtier than normal, you know what, they’re clean, I can prove exactly how clean they are,” the streamer said before lining them up with his mouth, taking a few licks, and then even shoving them in like he was prepared to eat the socks.

Unsurprisingly, this left quite a few of his viewers disgusted but plenty of others quickly moved to joke about it in his chat, creating some hilarious spams in the process.

Next time, though, grabbing a clean towel might be more appropriate than the socks. Plus, it’s less likely that people will be thinking it is dirty as well.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
