Twitch star ‘Sweet Anita’ knows firsthand the risks that come with being a popular influencer, having opened up to fans about a long-term stalker that has repeatedly threatened her safety — but now, she’s been met with an apparent death threat from the same person.

Sweet Anita is a well-known face on Twitch, carving out a unique community for herself due to her witty sense of humor and the hilarious hijinks that arise from her acute Tourrette’s Syndrome — a condition she also educates her fans about using her sizable social media presence.

However, being a top streamer is not without its demerits, as Anita has admitted that she has dealt with a long-term stalker over the past several months.

According to Anita, the stalker moved to her city and even slept outside of her home, prompting the streamer to reach out to law enforcement to deal with the issue.

However, things escalated after the stalker followed Anita into a shop, who then chased her. Luckily, the perpetrator was detained by two shopkeepers who were able to diffuse the situation — but even after taking their statements and finding a knife on the man, police released him with a mere “caution.”

Months later, Anita has revealed a screenshotted comment written by the very same stalker in her Twitch chat, which appears to be a pointed death threat against her.

“I’ll kill you soon,” the stalker wrote, as shared by Anita with a screenshot of the message. “Not with the cheap kitchen knife I had last time. No, I’m gonna bring out something special for you.”

The streamer took to Twitter to document the disturbing threat, and even left a concerning message of her own in regards to the ongoing situation.

“If anything happens to me, I really hope that I’m the last canary in the coal mine,” she wrote. “The law needs to change, No job should have such a high risk of rape, assault or death, especially not live streaming.”

She likewise pointed out statistics from a 2018 Vice article that reported, “at least 55 [UK] women have been killed by men who were repeatedly reported to the police between 2015 and 2018.”

Considering how long the stalker has been threatening Anita’s physical safety — even to the point of sleeping outside her house — fans are more concerned than ever for the streamer, and are hoping that this time, law enforcement take legitimate action against him.

Logan Paul wants to fight NHL pro Evander Kane after challenging Jake

YouTube sensation Logan Paul responded to a boxing challenge NHL pro Evander Kane issued to his brother, Jake, during the Impaulsive podcast.

Right after Jake scored a stunning knockout on former basketball player Nate Robinson, the San Jose Sharks left-winger sent a challenge Paul’s way, claiming he’s easy, get ‘wrecked.’

Now, one of the Paul brothers has seemingly accepted the challenge, but it wasn’t the one who Kane was expecting.

“San Jose Sharks? What is that exactly? Some sort of fish or aquatic animal who lives in San Jose?” Logan joked and read Kane’s original tweet. (Segment begins at 33:28)

“Put him on a list,” he remarked. “Does Jake Paul vs Evander Kane, is that a headline fight? How many buys does that get?”

While Jake’s last fight was on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s boxing return against Roy Jones JR, some could argue that Paul stole the show with his huge knockout that went viral on social media. It’s unclear if Kane would have the same star power as Robinson.

The podcast members agreed that the fight wouldn’t exactly be worthy of a headliner, but Logan Paul had an idea.

“Or does he just do it because he will get another fantastic f**king knockout? Is he even active?” Logan asked, inquiring about if Kane was still playing in the NHL. “Okay, so when is he going to train boxing? We’ll go through it again. I’ll put a quarter-million down this time.”

With Logan Paul down to step into the ring against Kane, all that was needed was a response by the forward, who wasted no time in accepting the invitation.

In a short eight-second video tweet, the Sharks player accepted the challenge quite confidently.

“Logan Paul, I’ll take the mop off your head and wipe the floor with you,” he said and proceeded to tag the YouTuber in the reply.

It’s unclear when or if this fight actually goes down, especially with Kane being active in the NHL, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. The NHL season is set to begin on January 1 at the earliest, but hopefully, the two can arrange for a fight in the following off-season.
