Twitch star Trainwrecks’ egotistical statements about his nose blew up in his face during a live stream, much to the delight of his audience.

During a November 8 stream, the star was told “he had the nose of a God” which prompted a rare smile on the super serious entertainer’s face. After grinning ear to ear and nodding in approval, Trainwrecks proceeded to agree with the comment. 

“My man,” he said happily. “That’s what I like to see. That’s what I like to hear. Thank you, brother.” 

Twitch/TrainwrecksTVThe Twitch star “flexed” his nostrils during his gloating.

While he could have just taken the compliment and be done with it, the streamer proceeded to double down and further hype up his nose, perhaps to sniff out further praise from his chat.

“I’m glad that people realize that this nose isn’t just a nose. I literally get the oxygen intake of two people. You understand?” he continued. “Some of you are gasping for air when you run. I’m not.” 

The streamer then proceeded to “flex” his nostrils in an attempt to show off. “You see these?” he asked. “They’re designed…”

Before he could finish his point, in what couldn’t have been better timing, the Twitch star received a new subscription making the “I do coke” play over him. 

Twitch/TrainwrecksTVTrainwrecks’ reaction to the sub was almost as perfect as the sub itself.

It was unlikely the subscriber knew exactly what they were doing as the message accompanying the subscription was to ask about when he would be recording his next podcast, which made the timing all the better. 

All Train could do was bury his head in his hands out of embarrassment as the donation alert showed him up.

The timing of the whole clip was pretty much perfect, and really left the streamer completely speechless. It would seem like despite “having the oxygen intake of two people”, Train was the one gasping when it was all said and done. 

With how great the subscription timing was, it’s anyone’s guess if we’ll see something better-executed in the remainder of 2019.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
