Twitch personality “Sweet Anita” boasts a dedicated fanbase thanks to her witty humor, easygoing personality, and acute Tourette Syndrome – but one of her fans is taking their enthusiasm too far.

While many internet stars receive their fair share of online harassment, Anita revealed that she’s been dealing with a stalker in the real world, as told in a Tweet on November 7.

According to Anita, her stalker had “spent hours” outside of her home, slept behind her property, and had even assaulted her, allegedly harassing her for over a month before being detained by local law enforcement.

However, it doesn’t look like the offender will remain in police custody, nor even receive a proper punishment, as the streamer told in a series of outraged Tweets the very next day.

Despite his abhorrent behavior, Anita claimed that her stalker was released with naught but a “caution” – a disturbing development, considering that he’s reportedly moved within a four-minute distance of her home.

“The stalker was caught and detained last night,” Anita wrote. “He had a knife on him. After taking my screenshots, recordings, a witness statement of the assault from me and a friend, AND having his confession to harassing me, he’s been released with a caution.”

The streaming star went on to express exasperation with the police’s response to the matter, writing, “I’m very used to the lack of protection from the police at this point. I guess I’ll have to get used to seeing him around, too.”

Needless to say, Anita’s fanbase is wracked with worry over the ordeal, urging the broadcaster to make a bigger stink out of the matter for her own safety.

“You actually need to blow this up, out of proportion, make it huge,” one fan replied. “…if someone is honestly stalking you and showing signs of being harmful, you’re in danger, too. Many [times] these things are left alone, and someone gets hurt.”

“It’s so bizarre how little concern there is for circumstances such as this,” another Tweeted. “…At the very least, you should seek a restraining order.”

Anita has yet to speak further about the incident at the time of writing this article, but fans are hopeful that the situation will be properly resolved sooner rather than later.

Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
