Twitch streamer MissCoookieez was celebrating her birthday with a cake with candles, but disaster struck when her microphone caught on fire.

Birthdays are always an important day and on Twitch, they can be a way to bond with your community as you celebrate another year of life.

However, MissCoookieez birthday plans went up in flames when she brought her birthday cake with lit candles a little bit too close to her microphone.

She was just chatting nonchalantly with her viewers when she brought the cake onto the stream, complete with burning candles, brought it right under her mic and caused it to catch fire immediately.

For a couple more seconds, she kept on talking to her viewers, before finally realizing a roaring flame was going on just inches from her face.

To her credit, she was able to keep her composure and blow out the flame before it was able to spread to anything else.

A fire starting anywhere isn’t ideal, but it’s pretty bad when your streaming setup catches ablaze since your PC and everything around it can easily set you back a couple of thousand dollars, depending on what it consists of.

If Coookieez wasn’t able to remain composed, there’s not telling the damage that could have been done. This event might have transpired differently had it taken place back in 2017, when she completely lost her mind after seeing a bug near her streaming setup. 

A bug was flying across her room that you can even see a glimpse of near the beginning of the video as it flies in front of the camera, and she freaked out so badly she began to scream and ran out of the room.

Luckily, she was able to keep it together when it came to putting out a fire. Could you even imagine the damage that could have been done if it was a firefly that started the blaze?

Jake Paul claims Disney didn’t fire him after Bizaardvark controversy

Jake Paul has dismissed new claims he was fired by Disney back in 2017 during his stint on sitcom Bizaardvark, addressing the three-and-a-half-year-old controversy in a recent interview.

Jake Paul, while juggling his YouTube and Vine antics back in 2017, was fast-becoming one of Disney’s biggest stars. The then 20-year-old played Dirk Mann on the sitcom Bizaardvark for two seasons.

However, his stay on the set was cut abruptly short in June 2017. He parted ways with the project, and there was a mixed reaction.

Back then, Jake Paul said that he and Disney “came to the agreement” to mutually part ways. However, others have claimed the star was fired over a series of controversies, including a news segment that saw neighbours complain about the then-Disney star.

Paul has rubbished those claims though. He doubled down on his initial statement three years ago, saying that he played along with the community sentiment as a joke.

“It’s funny because, for the last three years I’ve sort of ran with everyone saying, “Oh, he got fired,” just because I think it’s funnier to say, “I got fired by Disney,” but in reality it was a mutual decision to split from each other,” he told The Daily Beast.

The decision was purely a business one, according to Paul. He wanted more money, and Disney wasn’t offering it.

“They weren’t paying me enough. I was making millions more — per week — than I was on that show, and it was a mutual decision for us to split up,” he added.

“Everyone I worked with on that show was fantastic, but from a business standpoint it didn’t make sense. I was aging up and wanted more money.”

Jake Paul has since gone on to grow his career on YouTube, even expanding into boxing the likes of AnEsonGib on a Mike Tyson card, something the younger Paul brother said was the highlight of his life.

However, the real reasoning behind his parting with Disney will always be questioned.
