A couple who were livestreaming their race to a win in Fortnite Battle Royale on Twitch shared a wholesome reaction after the girlfriend won her first-ever match.

Streamer Fortnite with the launch of Chapter 2 and have each been chasing their first win ever since.

While Kiwiking has only 60 followers on Twitch, he posted it on Reddit and received thousands of upvotes and overwhelmingly positive feedback from users on the platform.

In a stream on Tuesday, October 22, the couple were once again livestreaming their race to a win when – seemingly, much to the surprise of both players – Kiwiking’s girlfriend, Sam, managed to pull the win out of the bag.

Both players turned to each other, mouths wide open, clearly in disbelief and overjoyed, before Sam jumped up and fell into Kiwiking’s arms, embracing each other in a truly heartwarming moment.

All Sam could manage was to simply exclaim, “I won,” while Kiwiking hugged her and kept repeating “You did it!”

While trying to contain her excitement, Sam briefly summarized her win to her boyfriend, saying, “My first win on Fortnite! I stayed calm, I placed traps, I killed… I actually won!” with his only response being “Well, I guess I owe you an Apple Watch now.”

In the Reddit post, Kiwiking confirmed that he now owed Sam an Apple Watch due to a bet they had with each other, and also preached how special it was to be able to game together and share these moments.

Hopefully watching his girlfriend get a Victory Royale will inspire Kiwiking to push that much harder to get a win for himself, too. 

Maybe he could buy himself an Apple Watch as a reward.

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
