A small-time Twitch streamer has taken to social media with an apology after a heated argument with his mother took a turn for the worse.

Although Twitch is often touted for the unexpected moments that get caught on camera, one young Fortnite streamer’s broadcast takes the proverbial cake of unanticipated things that viewers stumble upon online.

Rather than scoring some sick dubs, though, the Fortnite player was engaged in a screaming match with his mother, following what seems to be a three-day stint of playing the ever-popular battle royale game.

A Fortnite streamer’s broadcast was interrupted by a heated argument with his mother.

Although it’s unclear what’s being argued about in the beginning of a clip from his now-deleted VOD, it appears as though his mother wants to see something on screen, which the streamer refuses to show her.

“Ryan!” his mother pleads, exasperated, before the screen goes black and the room gets dark, as though she unplugged something.

After a multi-day stint of online gaming, a Fortnite streamer’s mother had enough.

“I’ll punch you in the throat, r***rd,” the streamer, going by the screename “yyedge” threatened in retaliation.

That wasn’t the worst of it: he went on to seemingly kick his mother, leading to her expletive-infused response.

“Oh my f**king god!” she yelled. “You are not on there for two days! Two days! Yes, you just f**ked yourself.”

A viewer posted the disturbing clip to Reddit, leading to a swath of concern online over the incident and shock that the youngster hadn’t been banned over the altercation.

However, it doesn’t look like the clip escaped yyedge’s notice, as he took to Twitter with an apology post on January 15, admitting that he was in the wrong and claiming that the argument wasn’t supposed to be broadcast online.

“Ok, what I did was wrong,” he admitted. “…What I’ve learned from it is that I really do need to work on my anger issues and control my actions. We both talked about what happened, and we both agreed to go see someone and get our relationship back on track.”

In spite of the disturbing altercation, it looks like both yyedge and his mother are working on rekindling their relationship, giving an unhappy story a heartwarming ending.

PewDiePie hits out at company over KSI Meme Review copyright claim

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
