As one of the net’s most popular livestreaming platforms, it comes as no surprise that Twitch offers a variety of content, including magic trick streams, travels abroad, and even psychic readings – one of which is earning a streamer ample backlash.

Twitch streamer ‘antphrodite’ is a “sassy psychic mixing Tarot with internet culture,” who streams his Tarot card readings for a live audience.

Antphrodite even has a bustling YouTube channel and his own website, where he advertises such readings for relationships, career advice, and even offers celebrity readings – but one of his predictions is sending shock waves of skepticism across the net.

Antprhodite, TwitterAntprhodite is a popular Twitch psychic, who also performs readings on celebrities and internet drama.

The psychic was in the middle of a stream on June 11 when he seemed to hint that one of his viewers should leave her husband, claiming that many of his cards were “reversed.”

“I’m concerned,” Antphrodite said of the cards. “Listen to me. I’m not judging your relationship, I’m not gonna tell you what to do, but what I am gonna tell you is that I’m concerned about this person not wanting the best for you, regardless of what they say.”

Antphrodite’s reading caught the attention of Reddit, which quickly criticized both the psychic and his viewer for using Tarot cards for relationship advice.

“Maybe it’s best for the man that they get a divorce because, I don’t think he would want to be with someone that goes on Twitch to see what she should do in her relationship,” one user wrote.

“I was so surprised that everyone stupidly played along with his bullshit when he was on Train’s podcast,” another said of the matter. “I was happy Destiny was the only one willing to call him out for the scammer he is.”

Reddit commenters were quick to call Antphroditie a scammer, with some worrying that bad readings might cause someone to end their relationships.

Other users accused Antphrodite of scamming his viewers outright, stirring a major debate as to the legitimacy of Tarot and palm readings altogether, with the implication that someone would end their marriage over bad readings.

Antphrodite is one of Twitch’s most popular psychics, boasting over 20,000 followers on the platform and over 43,000 subscribers on YouTube, due to his readings concerning internet drama and pop culture.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
