Thanks to the advent of live streaming, platforms like Twitch consistently deliver hilarious and unsexpected moments to viewers across the globe – one of which took place during an unexpected home viewing.

Twitch streamer ‘Rotweiler_’ was in the middle of a Rocket League broadcast on May 31 when he was notified by a real estate agent that several potential buyers would be stopping by to view his mother’s home, which he is staying in during the summer break.

However, the viewings took place at an entirely different time than was initially expected: Rotweiler claimed that his mother had told him the viewings would run at 10 AM, while his stream was interrupted by the agent nearly “six hours” later.

“I’m assuming they don’t expect me to be here,” Rotweiler theorized. “…I just hope I can finish this game before they can come in. ‘Cause that’s going to be really awkward, when I have to stare at the screen and I can’t even be polite and look at them.”

The streamer was initially at a loss as to what to do, after asking the realtor if it was alright to stay in his room during the viewing, but ultimately decided to hide underneath his bed to avoid potential interaction with the buyers – a decision that went wrong in the most hilarious way possible.

Rotweiler left his stream running as he lifted up the bed and jumped beneath it, just before a mother and her two children entered the room to have a look around. Unfortunately, his plan didn’t go as expected; the bed was clearly moving as the streamer adjusted himself beneath it, claiming that he was “just looking for a cable.”

The entire situation was incredibly awkward, with the streamer attempting to stifle his laughter after finally returning to sit at his desk once the family moved on to another room.

“I’m glad that’s gonna be there forever for everyone to see,” Rotweiler said of the debacle.

While Rotweiler’s on-stream mishap is one for the books, it would hardly be the first time such awkwardness has gone down during a live broadcast; in fact, streamer Jesse ‘shooK on3’ Latham fell victim to a scam, after tipping a scammer who was posing as a waitress.

With Twitch providing a slew of hilarity as of late, there’s no telling what shenanigans will crop up on the platform, next.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
