When people think about the dangers of Twitch streaming, few ever mention the physical traumas that can befall content creators, especially while performing dance moves. Unfortunately for Australian ‘udysof,’ he has become the poster boy for such tragedies after whipping too hard and dislocating his shoulder. 

Dancing is definitely a popular activity on Twitch, with hundreds of streamers around the world regularly broadcasting themselves busting moves to the latest pop hit on games like Just Dance, to the delight of audiences who love to watch their favorite content creators dab or ‘nae nae’ for their entertainment.

Perhaps this section should come with a severe health warning, though, as we watch these young men and women put their bodies on the line, day in and day out, all to provide top quality content for us.

Australian League of Legends streamer udysof, whose real name is Toby, didn’t realize that when he woke up on August 18, he would be heading for the emergency room thanks to a simple dance known as “the whip.”

Taste-testing chocolate on stream, and after snorting Smarties for some reason, the streamer received two new subscribers to his channel. While shouting them out, he offered to hit a whip in their honor. Toby then immediately hit the most powerful whip the world has ever seen, with the sheer force of the dance move popping his shoulder out of the joint completely.

Unsurprisingly, Toby gave an absolute shriek of pain the moment the shockwaves presumably created from the move hit him, clutching his right shoulder with his left arm, while his left hand seemed stuck in place to the top of his head.

“I just dislocated my arm!” he told his chat in a pained voice, yelling as he tried to move it. After struggling to open his door, Toby could be heard shuffling down the hallway shouting for his mom’s help.

It’ll come as little shock that Toby ended up in the emergency room, tweeting that he had popped his arm out of the socket “ridiculously far,” and that the damage was way worse than he expected it to be.

Thankfully, they were able to get the shoulder back in the right place after pumping him full of pain relief, and Toby was even able to post a cute selfie of himself in a hospital bed with his mom.

For those concerned about the streamer’s current condition, the good news is that he’s back home and streaming again, going for one-armed victories in Fall Guys with his right arm currently in a sling.

If this story isn’t crazy enough already, a second streamer somehow managed to dislocate their arm on the exact same day, when he punched his leg after losing the final round of a Fall Guys map, only for his right shoulder to pop out too, ending stream with “I need to go to hospital,” while clearly in some pain.

For years, people have claimed that streamers are safe from physical harm while doing their job, but it’s clear that’s no longer the case, with dance moves and Fall Mountain causing serious harms to defenseless gamers across the globe.

So remember, the next time you boot up your stream, be careful with how much power you put into your whip and make sure you don’t tilt while playing Fall Guys, or else you might be the next viral sensation who ends up in an emergency room.

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.
