Popular Twitch streamer TrainwrecksTV slammed a donator who sent him “credible” death threats through PayPal during a stream.

TrainwrecksTV is a popular variety broadcaster who can usually be found in the Just Chatting section, playing classic World of Warcraft, or opening up CS:GO cases – even in the face of danger

Yet, it appears that not everyone on the livestreaming platform is a fan, as some trolls have taken it upon themselves to send over “credible” death threats in the form of donations – with the streamer responding to hand out some verbal takedowns. 

Screengrab via TwitchTrainwrecks has over 378,000 followers on Twitch.

During his October 11 stream, Trainwrecks had been chatting with viewers and setting up to play some WoW Classic when he took aim at a viewer who was trying to start drama with their threatening donations. 

“Ok, so this is the same donation. You realize I see your name? Whoever is donating these death threats, I see your name,” he said after receiving back-to-back donations. “And, these are actually credible. I see your name on PayPal – you realize that, right? 

“Jesus Christ. I’m hoping this is a fake crazy just trying to start drama because if this is actually you and you have your name attached to your PayPal, you’re just a dumbass.”

The ‘crazy’ that the streamer had been referring to was a member of his chat that has been a part of a group of trolls, that rile up viewers with racist slurs – with some having even sent death threats to Trainwrecks prior to Twitchcon. 

Train sounded off on them, too, by sending out warnings about how much personal information the group had available on the internet, including specific details about their job and their location. 

It remains to be seen if the streamer deals with their continued threats in a serious manner by contacting the needed authorities, or if the trolls will carry on in their ways.

Twitch itself took such threats very seriously prior and during TwitchCon, even assigning bodyguards to some big-name streamers, including Pokimane – whose guard was called into action at the event.

Gamer Dad goes viral after son shares hilariously chaotic Overwatch gameplay

An extremely energetic parent has gone viral on Twitter for his unique Overwatch playstyle that equates to a real workout while playing as Lucio.

An enthusiastic Dad has been shared all across Twitter for his hilarious reactions while playing Overwatch. He’s not calling enemies out, nor is he getting overly hype with his team.

Instead, this viral video is all about his chaotic movement.

While playing some Deathmatch as Lucio, this parent got all too immersed in the game. Almost every jump, strafe, and dodge was mirrored in real life. 

Just how turning your controller helps turn faster in any game, this Dad took that mantra to an all-new level, applying it to every movement in Overwatch.

As fights came into effect, he was sliding all over the place trying to evade incoming fire. Given that Lucio is one of the most mobile heroes in the game, he was consistently getting into battle and having to reposition.

These weren’t subtle movements either. He was properly moving from side to side, even pushing away from the keyboard and mouse at times. There was rarely a moment where he remained still in front of the monitor.

“My dad plays Overwatch like this,” ‘biggestsonicfan’ said on Twitter. “He jerks around, dodging and peeking around corners. He lifts his mouse a lot. He loses his breath.”

It didn’t take long for social media to explode over the heartwarming video. Hundreds of thousands of views later and gamers from all scenes have chimed in to support the Dad’s efforts. Even Lucio’s voice actor Jonny Cruze caught wind of the viral clip. “He plays Lucio. I am honored.”

There must be some method behind the madness, however. Not only did the Dad secure some kills while in this groove, but they even finished among the top. “That was fun,” he said after the match. “Top four finish!”

Unfortunately, this type of extreme playstyle comes at a cost. “This is chair four,” the son followed up on Twitter. “The carpet under him is completely ripped up, and in the video, you can see light marks on his desk where the chair has dented it.
