Twitch streamer Alec Ludford was brought to tears after an emotional moment when fellow broadcaster Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys donated $500 to help with his fiance’s cancer treatments.

For many, streaming on Twitch is an opportunity to show off their gameplay or fun moments, but for IRL streamer Alec and his fiancée Stefany, their recent streams have been focused around the treatment she is receiving after being diagnosed with Leukemia.

Since her diagnosis, Stefany has been undergoing chemotherapy and has been in hospital since October 2, as she continues to fight against her disease with the support of her husband Alec and their Twitch community.

Twitch: alecludfordAlec and Stefany have been streaming from the hospital.

Alec and Stefany warmed the hearts of many on November 30 when he proposed to his girlfriend in their hospital room, telling her how proud he was of her and telling her that he wants to spend his life with her.

“I love you, and this is a sign of my commitment to you,” he said, while Twitch chat celebrated the proposal, with Stefany proudly wearing his great-grandmother’s ring.

It seems that this moment caught the attention of one of Twitch’s biggest stars, as Pokimane stopped by their stream on November 4 to offer some money to help cover the costs of Stefany’s treatment.

“$500 from Pokimane,” he read from his phone. “Wow, thank you so very much. Thank you for that. You have no idea what that means for both of us, thank you.”

Stefany joked: “Now Alec’s going to leave me to go to the casino!”

As it stands, Stefany is still undergoing treatment, tweeting on November 26 that her Leukemia is “getting worse,” and the doctors are increasing her medication in an attempt to help her fight back against the terrible disease.

The couple accepts any donations towards helping Stefany’s treatment through Alec’s Streamlabs donation page, with any money received also put towards taking care of her once she is discharged from hospital, covering her trips to the Cancer Center, and food for her immuno-suppressed diet.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
