Twitch streamer floored after receiving “insane” donation

One lucky Twitch streamer met her donation goal thanks to a generous viewer. Her reaction to their massive cash drop is nothing short of jaw-dropping.

Live streaming sites like Twitch offer viewers a variety of ways to support their favorite broadcasters.

From sending bits to gifting subscriptions and even directly donating, fans have a myriad of ways to show their appreciation – but some fans take their support to the next level with huge cash donations.

TwitchFans of Twitch streamers can support their favorite broadcasters in many ways, such as sending bits.

Texas-based Twitch streamer “kimcella” was in the middle of an IRL broadcast in the capital of neighboring state Oklahoma when she received a one such massive donation that rocked her world.

While kimcella was trudging her way through funding for a new PC, one of her viewers wiped out the entire amount on their own – gifting a whopping $700 for the computer costs.

“No, oh my gosh!” kimcella screamed as the donation amount flashed on her display screen. “This isn’t real! …that’s crazy. You said, ‘Since Paul was too much of a p***y to shave his head, PC goal…check.’ That’s insane, Sean!”

That wasn’t the end of her excited rant, either, with the streamer going on to question if the donator even knew how much money they’d just given her.

“I know you’re real, because you were donating in embers before, and you can’t… that’s crazy,” she continued. “We made our donation goal for a PC. That means by the time, like – that means we can pick out exactly what it’s gonna be! …do you know that’s real money?”

This wouldn’t be the first time a streamer has gotten emotional after receiving a huge donation, by far: in fact, rising Twitch star “Hachubby” had a similar reaction to a $1k gift in early June, slapping her desk and stepping away from her setup in a speechless stupor.

Much like kimcella, Hachubby was gifted the cash to buy a new computer – and it looks like both of these streamers are rocking new equipment, thanks to the shocking generosity of their dedicated fanbases.

Streamer goes viral for calling out “disrespectful” Among Us players

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Julien ‘julien’ Solomita has gone viral for a clip in which he called out Among Us players who are disrespectful towards others in-game.

In the viral clip, which has been viewed over 350,000 times since being uploaded to Twitter on December 4, Julien blasted people who infect his lobbies with negativity or make others feel “unsafe.”

“When I make these lobbies, when I go around and hit up some of my friends, and often times some of my friends’ friends to play Among Us with me, I have one thing in mind: that everyone I’m inviting gets to have fun,” the streamer began his rant.

“Gets to feel welcome. Gets to feel safe. Gets the exact opportunity as everyone else to be listened to. And gets to go home at the end of the night and say that had a good night of gaming,” he continued.

Among Us has become one of the most popular online games.

According to Julien, this mantra should be enforced for new people. “I’ve met more people in the streaming world playing Among Us than I’ve ever met, by far, than any other game,” he explained. “So, when new people are in my lobbies, I try to go extra to out of my way to make those people feel like they’re welcome and they get to have fun.”

Communication can be key in Among Us, so it makes sense that anyone who plays would want to be able to speak freely and not be spoken over. As such, when players aren’t able to get a word in, the experience can be ruined.

This is why the streamer has “zero tolerance” for the “normalization” of disrespecting people in video games.

“Among Us is a game and it’s for fun. It’s not so boys can talk over women. It’s not to make new people in the group feel small or unwelcome. It’s not to win in every game at all costs,” he continued to rant. “It’s a game and it’s for everybody to enjoy.”

He went on to reach out to players who may have been disrespected in online games and hoped that they never experienced that again. “I don’t want anyone here to get the idea that it’s even close to normal for that to be how you feel when you play a video game. That’s not normal. It’s f**king weird, it’s wrong.”

A lot of people have taken Solomita’s message to heart and voiced their agreement in the replies. Hopefully, his words have a lasting effect on players feeling a bit out of touch in online games such as Among Us.
