Partnered Twitch streamer “JadeyAnh” has apologized to her fanbase after an emotionally charged broadcast raised concerns for her safety across the net.

While Twitch is somewhat known for capturing unexpected moments on camera, JadeyAnh gave her viewers a serious shock when she broke out in tears during a game of Overwatch in mid-January.

Although her VOD of the stream has since been deleted, a clip taken from the missing broadcast shows her tearfully opening up to viewers, claiming that she doesn’t want her family to “worry” about her “anymore.”

Twitch streamer “JadeyAnh” raised concern across the net after breaking down during an emotional broadcast.

“It’s just, I feel like emotionally, I only bring sadness to my parents and my grandparents,” she claimed. “It’s been so long since anyone has looked at me without worries, because… I feel like my family can only fully be happy without me. ‘Cause I always know they are worried about me, and I don’t want that anymore for them.”

A worried fan posted the clip to Reddit, where many commenters expressed concern for the streamer’s mental health and physical safety, asking those who knew her to reach out in wake of the distressing video.

Thankfully, JadeyAnh has since responded to the issue via Twitter, apologizing to her viewers for worrying them with her “breakdown” and revealing that she is taking a break from streaming to seek counseling.

“I apologise for the breakdown you witnessed today,” she wrote. “Know that I’m now seeking professional help and [will] keep my online presence on hold ‘til things are better. A sincere thank you to some of you that notified people close to me who helped me when I needed it the most.”

Thus far, the streamer’s post has been met with overwhelming support, with many fans congratulating her on seeking help and offering their own advice after the spread of her emotional clip and a string of other concerning posts.

Such an outpouring of love and care echoes streamer Mizkif’s actions on January 1, when he halted a broadcast to check up on the mental health of a viewer who’d left a concerning message in his chat.

No matter the popular opinion of Twitch, it’s always heartwarming to see viewers rally behind the streamers and communities they watch and interact with.


UPDATE: JadeyAnh’s Twitch channel has  been banned as of January 17. She has yet to speak out on her suspension at the time of writing.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Sienna Mae Gomez is a California-based TikTok star who has seen exponential growth in popularity during the late summer/early autumn of this year.

Although she is only sixteen years old, she has already grown a sizeable platform due to her entertaining dance videos and content advocating for body positivity. She currently has 10.7 million followers on TikTok and 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

While some TikTok stars gained their platform over time, Mae’s rise to TikTok stardom was fairly rapid, with TheNetline reporting that she gained 1.5 million TikTok followers in two weeks.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
