Jinny is one of Twitch’s more popular IRL streamers, and although she occasionally plays video games, the influencer often broadcasts her travels abroad — one of which resulted in a shockingly racist encounter.

Jinnytty is a well-known face on Twitch, who is regularly seen collaborating with other broadcasters and documenting her travels both near and far for her 385,000 followers.

However, not all of these travel experiences have been positive for the streamer, who nearly got gored in the stomach and had her backpack “stolen” by a wild deer during her excursion to Denmark.

This encounter barely holds a candle to the frustrating moment she endured during a September 11 broadcast, while she was walking about at night in Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital city.

Jinnytty is a popular IRL streamer who encountered a disturbing instance of racism during her trip in Denmark.

During her nighttime excursion, Jinny was in the middle of talking to her viewers when a bystander shouted “ching chong” at her as he walked past — understandably drawing a shocked response from the streamer.

“That was racist,” Jinny said flatly after processing the comment. “You guys heard that, right? That was racist.”

Luckily, Jinny’s viewers were quick to assuage her, almost immediately flooding her stream with donations and messages of reassurance in wake of the concerning incident.

This is far from the first time an Asian Twitch streamer has dealt with harassment while traveling abroad; Giannie Lee was also at the center of a seriously uncomfortable encounter while dining in a restaurant, after two white men accosted her and pulled their eyes in front of her streaming camera.

Unfortunately, Lee would go on to be the victim of even more racist incidents during her time in Germany for Twitch Con that year — but she truly knew how to “kill them with kindness,” so to speak, gently informing them that their behavior was not welcome.

Even Twitch star JadeyAnh was the target of racist bystanders, who similarly accosted her and her cousin while out at a bar.

Although it’s amazing to see how the internet can connect us, it certainly sheds a light on the negatives in the world — but we gotta admit, it definitely feels good to see these streamers clap back at the people harassing them.

TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Addison Rae were once the internet’s most buzzed-about couple; but after the two broke it off in September, it’s been unclear whether they might get back together in the future.

It’s been almost a year since ‘Braddison’ took the net by storm; The two influencers frequently appeared in each other’s TikToks and social media posts, quickly sparking rumors that the two were dating on the down-low.

While they never confirmed their relationship status — with Addison even claiming they were not involved, whatsoever — the two broke off whatever was going on between them “off social media,” leaving shippers in shambles.

However, it’s clear that Bryce Hall isn’t over his pseudo-romance with Rae (who is one of TikTok’s highest-earning creators), as evidenced by a lie detector test taken in collaboration with the Vlog Squad’s Jason Nash.

It’s worth noting that polygraph tests are not always correct, with a report from the National Academy of Sciences claiming that there is “little basis for the expectation that a polygraph test could have extremely high accuracy.”

That didn’t stop the Sway House from taking the test for entertainment purposes, anyway, prompting Nash to ask the question on everyone’s minds: “Do you want Addison back?”

Hall initially laughed at the query but openly admitted that he did, indeed, want to get back with the Southern belle — prompting the test proctor to announce that his statement was, in fact, true.

Needless to say, this caused quite an outrage among the Sway House members, with Josh Richards even getting up from the sofa to run out of the room yelling, “Oh my god! Holy s**t!”

It’s unclear whether or not ‘Braddison’ will ever be a thing again: Considering that Addison seems to keep her love life close to the chest, as well as being constantly harassed on social media, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the two keep a potential rekindling of their romance off the books.

For now, all fans can do is watch and wait for a response from Rae after Hall’s soul-baring answer to one of TikTok’s most burning questions.
