Twitch streamer dances through tears after donation surge

One Twitch streamer got emotional after fans started donating en masse to her channel – but that didn’t stop her from busting out a few moves in celebration.

Like many live streaming platforms, Twitch offers fans with a variety of ways to support their favorite streamers, be it by sending bits, gifting subscriptions, or even directly donating money to their cause.

As thanks for their donations, some streamers will shout out their donators on stream, while others might play certain games in their honor or even give their sandbags a celebratory kick.

Yugwha0901, InstagramTwitch streamer “Yugwha” got emotional after fans started sending in big donations.

However, Twitch streamer “Yughwa0901” has a different method of thanking her supporters: rather than merely shouting them out during a broadcast, she breaks out into different choreographed dances, depending on the amount donated.

Yugwha was in the middle of a broadcast on November 26 when one fan donated a whopping $100 to her channel – a donation that sent her over the edge, causing her to tear up after the initial shock of the amount passed.

“What? What’s happening?” she queried, reaching over to grab a tissue to stop her forthcoming tears. “Thank you so much. Thank you for the $100 donation. Oh my gosh. Aww.”

The donations didn’t stop there, though: Yugwha received two additional $20 donations and even a new subscriber, which didn’t help her grateful tears, resulting in an odd few moments where she broke down in Fortnite and other meme dances while openly weeping in front of the camera.

This continued for a while, and fans continued to show their support with even more donations, causing Yugwha to keep a tissue handy while she busted a move.

This isn’t the oddest way a Twitch streamer has thanked their audience, by far: as previously mentioned, broadcaster and kickboxing enthusiast “FoxenKin” honored her new followers with a few celebratory kicks to her sandbag.

No matter how they choose to show their gratitude, it’s always a heartwarming moment when fans come out to support their favorite personalities – although it can result in some awkward moments.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

A post shared by charli d’amelio (@charlidamelio)

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
