Twitch streamer’s attempt at a “fart mic” ends in a mess

Just Chatting streamer ‘AmericanDad’ looked to pull off his “first ever fart mic” on broadcast, but his attempt at the joke failed miserably, with the streamer getting more than he bargained for.

Milestones are a big thing for streamers on Twitch. Whether it’s getting the stats to hit Affiliate or Partner, getting an obscene amount of followers, or even just ticking off your first sub, every goal on a streamer’s journey is celebrated.

Sometimes it’s with a special stream, a giveaway, or even some crazy challenges. However, for AmericanDad, his quirky skit to celebrate three years on the platform got a bit embarrassing — and messy — for the veteran streamer.

AmericanDad’s unusual three-year Twitch celebration didn’t quite go to plan.

Instead of doing some giveaways or other cool promotions, he decided the best way to go about it was an impulsive fart into his microphone.

“Guys I’m feeling the fart mic tonight. Did the fart mic emote get approved? No it didn’t. Okay, chat, fart mic. First every fart mic. Here it is.”

With the microphone up right against his crotch, instead of a clean puff of air, a sound more akin to a wet mess came out. AmericanDad knew what happened, his viewers heard it, and there was only one way to explain himself out of it.

“I think I just sh*t my pants,” he said, in a bit of shock. “I just pooped my pants. F**k! I literally just shit my f**king pants! Oh my god, chat, I’m not even fucking kidding. I have to go clean myself.

With the streamer taking a break to freshen himself up again, his chat hunted down some of Twitch’s finest poop emotes to spam in his chat, alongside his hallmark plunger. He was gone for ten minutes to clean up the mess and get ready again.

“I had to take a shower again dude. New sweatpants? Oh yeah, there was poop in the sweatpants, I had to go throw them in the washing machine.

Instead of dwelling on the moment awkwardly and trying to delete all evidence, the streamer owned up to it, albeit reluctantly.

“I 100% sh*t my pants, but I’ll own it, because I ain’t no b*tch. Three years of streaming and I’ve never sh*t my pants until today. F**k man, what the f**k is wrong with me?

To save himself from another smelly emergency, he pledged to do “no more fart mic for the rest of the night.”

The spur of the moment decision didn’t lend to starting off his night well, but at least the celebrations could only go up from there.


Pokimane denies new Fedmyster claims, says he sent “admission of guilt”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has hit back at claims made by former OfflineTV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan in a leaked exposé document, and revealed the disgraced Twitch star sent her what she believes is an “admission of guilt.”

Earlier this year, the OfflineTV house was rocked by accusations of harassment and misconduct leveled at former editor-turned-personality Fedmyster.

Several members of the Twitch content group, including Lilypichu and Yvonne, detailed how Gaytan would “come to [their] room, drunk” and “massage [their] feet and thighs.” Yvonne also revealed he had “crawled in bed” with her, kissed her cheek, and put his hand up her shirt.

These accusations were compounded when Pokimane claimed Fed had been a “big reason” why she moved out of the house. Fedmyster was subsequently expelled from the OfflineTV house, and removed from the company.

After months of silence from the Twitch streamer, a document leaked online on Nov. 24, which mainly detailed Fed’s relationship with Pokimane. In the unreleased exposé titled “My Truth”, which Dexerto has read copies of, Gaytan, 25, accused Pokimane of “twisting the truth” about their relationship.

Pokimane has now hit back, speaking about the leaked document in a short Twitch stream on Wednesday. In her response, she suggests Fedmyster sent her an “admission of guilt” in regards to his “manipulative” actions.

Fedmyster’s leaked doc, “My Truth,” mainly revolves around his relationship with Pokimane.

Fedmyster allegedly sent Pokimane “admission of guilt”

Anys, who admitted she’s already seen several versions of the Fedmyster document, doubled down on her previous June 29 claims. According to the Twitch star, Fed’s claim to a potential hookup, Steve, that they were “a thing” was the best example of his manipulation.

“I want to make it clear that, to me, this incident [with Steve] was clearly a mess-up on Fed’s part. I confronted Fed, he apologized… he admitted fault,” she said.

Pokimane revealed she messaged Fedmyster ahead of her ‘tell-all’ stream in June, asking if there was anything she “should maybe leave out.” When Gaytan requested she skip over the incident with Steve at the party, however, she refused.

“He said ‘if you can… leave out the Steve stuff, it’s something I wouldn’t like mentioned.’ I couldn’t leave that out. He asked me not to mention it, and I think that’s an admission of guilt, then later he says ‘that’s not how it went down’.”

Pokimane says Fed’s claims ‘overshadow’ real issue

The problem, she continued, is that Fed has focused on her being a “villain” and leading him on in the leaked document. This focus, which she believes “blows everything out of proportion,” is being used to overshadow the actual OfflineTV accusations.

“Essentially we had trouble being close but managing our friendship, knowing he wanted more, but I always felt I was upfront about it… it really bothers me that in this document he tried to make me out as the bad guy,” Pokimane said.

“Obviously we weren’t on the same page. I hope you guys can see this from my perspective… I didn’t see a future between the two of us. I thought I was always honest. Looking back, I should have been more aware of how I acted around him, but hindsight is 20/20!

“To me, in all honesty, all of this is just not important. It’s regular 20-year-old relationship bullsh*t. What I shared about the situation is my honest truth, and it’s totally irrelevant to the actual incidents that triggered all of this.”

Fedmyster says he “stands by document”

Fedmyster has addressed the leaked document too; according to the disgraced Twitch star, he had no plans to release the exposé, because it felt like “airing dirty laundry.”

“[Poki and I] came to agree that keeping things private and making no further statements publicly was what was best for us…We wanted to heal and prevent any further harm to the people involved,” he explained in a short Twitter post.

“On the topic of whether I tried to manipulate our friends to hate her, I still fully stand behind what my document reads but I want to emphasize that it wasn’t my intention to shine Poki in a bad light… I am deeply sorry, and wish I wasn’t so naive and insensitive.”

Fedmyster also said he “still believes [he] was mischaracterized,” but added “after talking to Poki I came to understand her perspective. My outlook on the situation as a whole now comes from a better place of understanding.”

Hours after finishing her stream, Anys took to her second Twitter account, where she said she was “looking forward to moving on” from the whole situation.

“Sorry, td was tough, it’s hard for me to reply to v private things without making the situation messier + I was not in a good headspace,” she wrote. “ty to those that were understanding. looking forward to moving on.”

Yvonne and Lilypichu, who were the first to level harassment allegations against Fedmyster, have not yet publicly addressed the leaked document.
