Popular Twitch streamer Adept had enough of viewers spreading an “ugly” photo of her with no makeup on and laid into them during a November 1 broadcast.

As she was putting on makeup for her Reaper cosplay at BlizzCon, the streamer said she wanted to address “little b*****s” in Discord who she saw sharing an unflattering screengrab of her. 

“You think that I don’t see you, but I see you,” Adept warned. She then explained that they had been using the photo of her without makeup to “justify that I’m ugly”.

“There’s a whole ass video of me without makeup on,” she added. “There’s tons and tons of makeup streams of me with no makeup on. We all established I’m ugly. Stop trying to use the one screenshot to justify that I’m ugly.”

Adept’s content ranges from gaming to makeup videos and cosplay. According to the third-party stat-tracking website Twitch metrics, she’s quite good at entertaining as she has the 50th most-watched English Just Chatting channel on the site.

Adept then proceeded to rip into the viewers for spreading the picture.

“Even if I was ugly, if I really wanted to, I could make your daddy lick my a*****e clean,” she remarked before deciding to dial it back. “Okay, that’s too far. But it’s true. So, suck my ugly d**k. Don’t test me or I might break up your parents’ marriage.”

She wasn’t done there either. The popular streamer put her viewers on blast yet again stating the screenshot, “doesn’t make me as ugly as you are”. 

“Keep trying though,” she said as she went back to doing her makeup. 

While she never named any of her viewers, she proved she wasn’t afraid to dish it out when given flack. That could be partly why she’s managed to build a large following with over 21,000 followers on Instagram and 38,000 on Twitter.

Meanwhile on Twitch, the Gen.G streamer could hit 100,000 followers by the end of the year.

Mr Beast teases chess match with grandmaster Hikaru

The Beast’s Gambit? After YouTuber Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson revealed his ‘addiction’ to chess, and his wish to play with other creators, esports org TSM offered the services of their chess grandmaster, Hikaru Nakamura – and it’s looking like a collaboration is on the cards.

Chess has seen a big resurgence in popularity over the past year. After streamers like xQc and Forsen picked up the game early in 2020, chess.com established the Pogchamps: an amateur chess tournament. After the success of the first tournament, a second edition was completed in September.

Then Netflix released ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, a miniseries about a chess protege on a quest to conquer the chess world. The cultural impact has been insane. When the series was released, the International Chess Federation found that Google searches for people wanting to learn chess quadrupled.

MrBeast has already made his wish to get involved with esports abundantly clear. While chess isn’t technically an esport, the two overlap a lot nowadays, and this latest development seems like a definite step in that direction.

Mr Beast speaks to the camera in a vlog.

Mr Beast’s epic rise on YouTube has seen him do, and play, plenty of different things.

MrBeast teases match with TSM chess grandmaster Hikaru

After MrBeast tweeted out his desire to be matched up with chess content creators, TSM responded by offering the services of grandmaster, Hikaru.

“Just started playing chess a few days ago, any creators want to play? I’m addicted,” MrBeast said.

MrBeast then talked about his fascination with Hikaru’s work, explaining how he “watch[es] all his videos.” TSM looked to seal the deal, and replied: “Let’s make it happen.”

A chess matchup between MrBeast and Hikaru, or even some sort of tutorial, would be an exciting piece of prospective chess content. Hikaru seems keen to capitalize on the current hype around chess. After the success of the first two Pogchamps, Hikaru tweeted his desire for the third edition of PogChamps to be created.

He’s already had responses from big names, with Fnatic League coach YamatoCannon and StarCraft commentator Artosis willing to get involved.

If Hikaru’s bid to put together a new tournament comes to a head, perhaps we’ll be seeing MrBeast lining up as one of the competitors.
