Twitch streamer SkeeterMagavin has claimed that her doctors tried to “trick” her by signing her up to a number of “research things” that she had not sanctioned, as she receives treatment for cancer. 

SkeeterMagavin is a Twitch streamer with just shy of 6,000 followers on the platform. Together with her boyfriend Alec Ludford – also a Twitch streamer – the pair regularly collaborate for IRL and Just Chatting content. 

However, Skeeter is currently in hospital for a bone marrow transplant to treat Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. Her boyfriend has continued to stream alongside her, providing updates on her condition to their audience.

While talking to Ludford’s stream on October 8, Skeeter revealed that she believes she has been signed up to a number of research projects by her doctors, without her consent. 

In a clip that has over 85,000 views at the time of writing, Skeeter explains that she came across her medical files when they had been left on her bed. The content of the files was allegedly suggestive of her being signed up to take part in research she had previously denied. 

“I was actually refusing to sign these research papers,” she said. “And they tried to trick me and get me to sign some.”

“When they had brought me down for one of my procedures, they left my file on my bed,” she continued. “I was looking at it and I noticed that they had checked me off for all these research things that I thought I denied. And there’s been some other sketchy shit that has happened.”

Viewers were shocked by what the streamer was saying, with many wishing her the best and lamenting the alleged poor behavior of her doctors.

The pair of streamers have since expressed their gratitude for the support they have received from the community.

Updates are regularly posted on both streamer’s Twitter accounts, as well as on Ludford’s live stream. 


Charli D’Amelio slams “hurtful” rumors that her parents force her to post online

As the current queen of TikTok, Charli D’Amelio is no stranger to being swept up in internet drama — but a recent rumor involving her family has caused the star to lash out in a series of social media posts.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Boasting over 106 million fans on the viral video app, Charli saw a huge surge in growth throughout 2020, acquiring her own makeup line and even scoring a partnership with Dunkin’ Donuts, among other accomplishments.

With great internet fame comes great… drama, apparently, as the youngest D’Amelio sibling also found herself in a slew of “scandals” last year — and the turmoil isn’t over yet, as the New Year seems to be kicking off with a disturbing rumor regarding Charli’s parents.

The rumor itself, circulating online via comments on Instagram tea pages and TikTok fan accounts, alleges that Charli is unhappy being an influencer and is “forced” to post TikToks by her parents to keep up with their elevated lifestyle.

The D’Amelio family have been a source of near-constant rumors and speculation among fans ever since Charli and Dixie’s rise to fame.

However, Charli has vehemently denied these claims, as told in a series of biting comments via TikTok on January 18, 2021.

“I am so fortunate to have such amazing parents, and when people spread fake, hurtful and false rumors about my family, I have to put my foot down,” she began.

“I have an amazing dad and family who have never hurt or taken advantage of me, ever. Please stop spreading these lies. If I am not in the mood to post, I don’t. No one is forcing me. My parents care about my mental health more than anything.”

It seems that Charli’s reply has been met with mixed reviews among critics, who claim that the star is avoiding responsibility for a recent Bahamas vacation — but this is far from the first time the D’Amelio’s have had to address similar rumors that spiraled out of control.

Last year, Dixie released a comparable response after fans claimed that her parents treated her poorly and “worse” than her younger sister, with YouTube drama channels pointing out moments in family videos where the eldest D’Amelio sibling was being teased.

Dixie was very blunt with those making accusations of her parents’ alleged favoritism.

Luckily, both stars shut down the rumors quickly and brutally — although there’s no telling what other theories fans are bound to come up with in the future.
