Twitch streamer Sweet Anita has never shied away from her Tourettes, seeking to use her Internet popularity to educate people on the disorder – but has now slammed a viewer for asking if she would want to cure it.

Due to her disorder, Anita has had to face some criticism and awkward moments online, be it from fans or people unaware of her condition. However, her viewers and even people new to her content manage to grasp quite quickly that she has Tourette’s, so for the most part conversations are fairly respectful.

That isn’t always the case, though, and one viewer experienced some rare Anita anger after asking a question that she clearly considered disrespectful, and called them out on it.

Sweet_Anita is a unique face on Twitch, best known for her acute Tourette’s Syndrome and the hilarious moments that arise from the condition.

When someone donated and asked, “if doctors found a Tourette’s cure, would you do it?” Anita took the moment to question their intentions and ask why they thought that was an appropriate question.

After a few moments of silence and pondering, Anita asked: “Do you wander into random disabled streamers’ chat and ask if they want to be cured? Do you walk up to people sitting in wheelchairs and ask if they wish they had legs? If they could reach as high as you can? Do you ever wish you were ‘just like me’?”

She then delivered the final blow, simply saying “I’m gonna say this now, pal – I don’t wish I was like you. I’m cool with myself, I don’t see myself as broken and wish I was just like you because, let’s face it, you’re probably just as broken, just in a different way.”

It’s not often you see Anita get genuinely annoyed at someone, but she clearly has the best intentions as she looks to educate her viewers on the difference between right and wrong when it comes to how to address people facing difficult issues, disabilities or disorders.

In the past, Anita has come under fire for tics that cause her to say controversial things or phrases, with some even calling to have her banned from Twitch, but a representative of the streaming platform later came out to show support and solidarity with her and others like her, saying that they “have a home” at Twitch.

Needless to say, that viewer will think twice next time he decides to ask a streamer a question, especially if it could be deemed insensitive.

Tana Mongeau has responded to a video of her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne who was filmed kissing another influencer in a TikTok that’s had millions of views.

Bella Thorne was at Clubhouse BH this week, the creator collective founded by Daisy Keech. The “Shake it Up” actress collaborated with influencer Teala Dunn in TikTok videos.

But in one video she was seen kissing her directly on the lips. The clip has already racked up more than 8 million views and 1.5 million likes.

It’s unsurprising that the pair are hanging out, as Teala and Bella have known each other for several years after both appearing on Shake It Up together. Bella makes regular appearances in influencers’ social media posts and even music videos.

Teala recently joined Clubhouse BH and has come under fire in recent weeks for repeatedly posting TikToks that use the same joke, over and over. Her video with Bella Thorne even plays into the same joke where she begins the video saying: “Fun fact, actually really really sad fact.”

Bella is also the ex-girlfriend of popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau. They dated for over a year but broke up in February 2019, and have thrown shade at each other over social media since.

Tana responded to the kiss by duetting the TikTok from her own account, adding: “People really pretend to be my friend,” and then commented “It’s a joke…kinda? Like?”

TikTokers and other influencers weighed in with their opinions too. Harry Jowsey commented: “What happened last time someone hung out with your ex?” referring to drama between the two and Francesca Farago in September.

Francesca and Tana were rumored to be dating, but they got into a fight after Tana posted a video with Harry, Francesca’s ex-boyfriend.

Another user got over 10,000 likes on one comment under Tana’s TikTok that said: “Teala hasn’t even done anything to me, yet she triggers me so much and idek why.”

Teala herself commented: “Girl what???” Despite claiming her response is a joke. But the pair appeared to have resolved any issues that may have come up after Teala tweeted: “Ummm I freaking love @tanamongeau everything’s fine y’all there’s no drama,” and Tana responded with love heart emojis.

Whether a romance is blossoming between Teala and Bella is yet to be determined.
