Twitch streamer instantly regrets asking viewer about his wand

A female Twitch streamer has been caught out after accidentally dropping a pretty hilarious euphemism when chatting with her viewers on stream.

Pixelsmixel, who typically inhabits the Just Chatting section, will typically spend a couple of hours each stream just talking about what is going on in the world, in the Twitch sphere or in her life. She’ll also occasionally play games such as Dota 2.

In her January 6 stream, Pixel was making the usual conversation with her viewers when a viewer named Ollivander complimented her accent, and she accidentally showed a little too much gratitude.

Twitter: PixelsmixelPixelsmixel is a Just Chatting streamer with over 20,000 followers.

“Accent 10 out of 10,” she said, reading out the user’s message in her chat. “Ollivander… username 10 out of 10!” She rates the username 10/10 because Ollivander is the name of the wandmaker in the Harry Potter book series — one she is evidently a very big fan of.

She could have left it there but, as luck would have it, a Freudian slip made for a very awkward couple of moments. “Harry Potter user of my dreams. Got a wand for me?”

Pixel quickly realized the alternative implications of what she had just said and immediately pulled herself up on it, saying: “Oh, I hate that I’ve just said that on the internet.”

After a couple of moments to consider what she had just said, Pixel burst out laughing, exclaiming “chat, save me,” while sinking increasingly lower into her chair.

She continues laughing while asking herself: “Why am I like this?” before saying that she should not be allowed on the internet.

The moment was one of perfect comedic timing that couldn’t have come off any better. The Harry Potter-related joke seemed a great one to make at the time, but maybe Pixelsmixel should have thought a little longer before she spoke on this occasion.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
