Tyler ‘Trainwreckstv’ Niknam has labeled fellow streamer Lisa ‘STPeach’ Vannatta “shameless” after watching a clip from her pool stream on Twitch.

Trainwrecks is owner of a massively popular channel on the platform, which focuses less so on gaming and more on discussing various topics with viewers, as well as a series of podcasts.

He has been vocal in the past about the nature of some content on Twitch, especially those which he calls “shameless”, often referring to certain female streamers and their broadcasts.

The ‘shameless’ catchphrase has been adopted by his community, perhaps most infamously used to describe Amouranth’s Just Dance performance at TwitchCon 2019.

On October 30, Niknam was watching various clips on the popular LivestreamsFails subreddit, when he stumbled upon one from a pool stream STPeach did in August, with the clip entitled “STPeach knows what’s good.”

Initially confused, Trainwrecks said: “She’s in the pool, who cares?”, but realized the clip was actually about the seemingly deliberate camera placement to ensure the right angle as STPeach exited the pool.

“Oh my – oh. That is shameless,” he exclaimed. “Listen, if you’re just getting out of the pool – I like STPeach, she’s been on the podcast, she’s down to earth, but listen, Destiny wants an example, of just shamelessness, this is it.”

He continued: “If you’re just getting out of the pool, it’s fine, but this camera position, the camera move right before getting out, is shameless.”

After watching the clip again, Trainwrecks clarified that the action itself (getting out of the pool) was innocent enough, but argued that the repositioning of the camera was the worst part. 

“Come on dude, if you’re just getting out of the pool, no one can say anything, there’s no proof,” Niknam explained, “but come on, when you adjust the camera to this angle and get up – come on dude.”

STPeach has been streaming on the Twitch platform for a number of years, and some of her content has earned her a suspension in the past, notably in 2016 for a ‘dancing’ stream.

However, she has continued to stream regularly and is now fast approaching one million followers on the platform, with a mix of streams in the ‘Just Chatting’ category and playing League of Legends.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
