Twitch streamer floored after hilarious jumpscare breaks their chair

Twitch is known for being a hive of unexpected and outrageous content — but one streamer took the cake (and bit the dust) thanks to a humorously bungled reaction to a popular horror game.

Horror games are popular picks on Twitch, due to the excessive reactions they draw from both streamers and their viewers for their scary moments.

While plenty of broadcasters have shrieked and lost their minds over particularly frightening games, player “Jervey” had a different kind of reaction, entirely — all thanks to a faulty piece of furniture.

Twitch streamer “Jervey” was in the middle of playing “Layers of Fear” when the game sent him a serious jumpscare that threw a monkey wrench into his broadcast.

The streamer was in the middle of playing popular horror title ‘Layers of Fear 2’ when he turned his character around, only to find a shadow quickly crossing his field of view while a loud noise sounded off — a classic jumpscare tactic.

It seems that Jervey isn’t above falling for such schemes — literally — as he tumbled to the floor and out of frame of the camera as the jumpscare happened.

As it turns out, the broadcaster’s chair had broken at that exact moment, although whether it was due to him jumping out of his skin over the game or just the chair defying physics remains to be seen.

Jervey quickly retrieved his camera to assess the damage, showing that the left two legs of his chair had completely broken off from its seat.

After seeming to make an attempt at piecing the chair back together, he went ‘afk’ for a moment, before returning to his stream and explaining the situation.

“You know what the best part of me breaking my chair was?” he laughed after retrieving another chair from his kitchen. “I just… dropped on camera.”

This isn’t the first time a streamer has bit the dust during a broadcast, either; popular streamer “Quad Banger” likewise fell out of his seat during a February livestream, but found the situation so hilarious that he couldn’t stop laughing after eating it on camera.

No matter the case, streaming slip-ups always make for good content — especially when they involve dysfunctional pieces of furniture.

TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
