Twitch streamer ClassyKatie took aim at “spiteful” viewers during a recent stream, giving viewers an incredible moment that they haven’t seen in a long time.

Twitch gives streamers a home to showcase pretty much whatever content they want, provided they stay within the rules.

However, it is also home to trolls who try to draw a reaction out of streamers and create a highlight of their own. Yet, one streamer decided to take them to task with an incredible rant.

Twitter: ClassyKatieThe streamer wasn’t playing around with the influx of troll messages.

ClassyKatie’s June 17 stream hit the front page of Twitch and attracted attention from some viewers who don’t regularly tune into her content. With that increased viewership, some trolls reared their heads and tried to set the streamer off.

Yet, the streamer decided to fire back. “I feel really bad for people who have nothing better to do in their life than enter a Twitch chat and say mean things to a person they’ve never met before. Most of the people who say the really mean things in my chat know me for one minute and they choose to inflict negativity, hateful, spiteful words on me that they think will hurt me.”

The streamer continued on, taking shots at some of the growing troll comments: “Asking if I’m trans. Am I trans? Sure I am,” they added. “Am I gay? F*ck yeah. Am I a boy? Uh hmm, my spirit d*ck is bigger than you can ever imagine. F*cked your mom with it last night. She screamed to God, you’re welcome.”

Yet, she wasn’t finished there – repeating her message about being others being hateful on the internet. “I pity people like that, that have nothing better to do than go on the internet and try to hurt people they’ve never met before.”

She then took things up another level, reaching her crescendo with a theory about why the abusive trolls act in the manner that they do.

Nevertheless, ClassyKatie offered up a message of hope for internet trolls and how they can change their lives for their better by finding something “meaningful” to do when they wake up in the morning.

While her incredible rant may have gone viral and given her channel more attention than hitting the front page of twitch, Katie’s outburst might just be the warning calls that some viewers need to see before trying to take her on.

Jake Paul reveals how much money he made from Nate Robinson fight

Despite holding a professional record of just two wins and no losses, YouTube sensation Jake Paul is already making more than most professional boxers will ever see in their careers off the back of his Nate Robinson fight.

Jake Paul is still relatively fresh to the sport of boxing. Following a lone amateur win, his first professional bout came at the start of 2020. He’s just closed out the year with another victory. Both pro matchups went his way thanks to two early knockouts against fellow YouTube AnEsonGib and former NBA player Nate Robinson.

He’s barely spent a few minutes inside the ring across both fights, however he’s already taking home a good chunk of change for his efforts. The internet celebrity brings legions of fans with him, contributing to huge Pay Per View sales and even viral trends after the fact.

Rather than a guaranteed figure for his latest scrap, his earnings were dependent on the performance of the PPV as a whole.

As one of the biggest PPV events of the year – reaching over a million buys in the United States alone, according to analyst Dan Rafael – Paul cashed in big-time thanks to his unique contract for the fight.

The disclosed purses for both Paul and Robinson were a little off-base, as ESPN’s Mark Raimondi exposed in a December 3 interview with Paul. Initial figures were slim, but Paul assured he was paid “a lot,” even laughing when the topic was brought up.

No exact figure was revealed, though he did provide some staggering insight. “Eight figures” is what Paul walked away at an absolute minimum just for the performance alone. “My deal was built into the backend structure of how well the event performed,” he explained. “The event performed incredibly well.”

Walking away with $10,000,000 at a minimum sure sounds like a lot. This number doesn’t factor in potential sponsorship deals or additional PPV buys that come in after the initial batch. There are also international sales to consider as well.

It’s clear he has no signs of slowing down anytime soon either. “I truly believe I will be the biggest prize fighter in the world,” he added.

Segment begins at 9:57.

“Mike Tyson is co-signing me, he wants to take me under his wing. Why can’t I become the champion of the world?”

Paul has some lofty goals and even “realistic” aspirations of fighting Conor McGregor sometime in the near future. It’s entirely possible these eight-figure paychecks are just the beginning for Paul in his boxing career.
