Popular Twitch streamer Sweet Anita ripped into one of her fanboys for sending an incredibly long message about a “heat-seeking missile” in his pants.

Anita is known to have a large amount of infatuated fans desperate to find a way into her life aside from merely offering financial support through subscriptions, bits, and donations. While it’s not surprising some send her long messages asking her out, the content of said messages can be quite bizarre.

On November 25, the English star was playing Apex Legends and explained to her viewers that being single and a streamer was very weird because of how many people send her thirsty messages.

“They’re f*cking hilarious. They often send them to my business email and some of them are amazing,” she insisted. “I got this really long message from a guy who’s probably totally going to unsubscribe now that I’ve said this.”

The 29-year-old went on to describe the contents of the message where he called her an “amazing and interesting person.”

“I can tell you’re an intellectual like me; I’m also an intellectual and I’m also an amazing person. I think you and I should get together. I know that you probably get lots of messages like this and I know I probably don’t have a chance, but I have this heat-seeking missile in my pants that guides my actions,” the streamer laughed. “And I’m sorry to say I have to obey it.”

Unfortunately for the viewers, Sweet Anita may as well have been playing Missile Command because she shot down the phallic reference with ease.

“So, in the slightest off chance that this will get past whoever sorts through your emails for you, I thought that maybe you and I should go on a date,” Anita recalled the last portion of the message.

“Good luck to you and your heat-seeking missile, buddy,” she fired back. “Today, it definitely missed.”

While the message was quite funny, Anita has had unfortunate real life experiences with stalkers. Earlier in November, she revealed that she had a stalker who “spent hours” and even allegedly assaulted her before finally being detained by police.

Twitch/Sweet_AnitaAnita’s Tourettes is a major part of her “charm”.

However, the individual was released with a “caution”, angering the normally easy-going entertainer.

At least this thirsty fan stuck to awkward messages that can easily be deleted instead of hanging out at her house for hours.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
