Female Twitch personality Jenna sparked controversy after a clip of her talking about an ex-boyfriend went viral on the LivestreamFails subreddit – and now she’s responded.

Jenna is mainly known for her gaming streams, though she does frequent the Just Chatting section from time to time, where she interacts with viewers and tells them stories about her life.

However, one such tale landed the streamer in hot water after a video about an ex-flame went viral on Reddit, and she appeared on Hasan’s broadcast to explain how it was taken out of context.

Instagram: @jennatwitchJenna sparked outcry from Reddit users recently.

Why people are angry at Jenna

On January 7, a clip surfaced online where the female streamer recalled a story about how she tried to kiss a guy she’d friendzoned for months after she finally fell for him.

“Six full months of the friendzone, one day I just got a crush on him and I don’t know why!” she revealed. “I ended up kissing him randomly, and he looked at me when I was trying to make out with him, and he said “this is weird” and denied me.”

The 21-year-old then went on to say that she was going to go on stream and tell her viewers what had just happened – something which caused the friend to kiss her, and she “got her way.”

The tale ended up gaining traction on Reddit, where many users criticized the Canadian for supposedly “pressuring” the man into making out with her.

“Pressuring someone by saying you would shame them publicly to “get it your way,” disgusting no matter if your a man or woman,” one person wrote. 

“What was she thinking? How did she think people would respond to this?” another said.

RedditPeople were not happy with the streamer’s story.

Jenna explains her side

A few hours later, Jenna appeared on Hasan Piker’s stream to address the concerns and to give her side of the story regarding the incident.

“He looked at me and said “this is weird!” and I was like [shocked], and I rolled over and I crossed my arms and I was like super upset, and I’m like “I’m gonna tell my stream!”,” she explained. “And he’s like “K” and he comes over and he kisses me.”

“He told me later on, because I asked him ”why did you say this is weird?” because he had been making moves on me for a while, and he said it was because he was shocked because he thought he was friendzoned!” the streamer continued. “I literally still talk to this dude to this day, he’s my best friend. I think I should have provided more context because we’ve been on and off for years.”

UPDATE 3:25PM PST January 8: Jenna’s ex-boyfriend appeared on her broadcast on January 8, and clarified exactly what happened between the pair.

“She kissed me, it caught me off guard, I said it was weird, and then you roast me for 20 minutes, and then I didn’t mean it like it was weird, like I didn’t want to,” he explained. “It was because it caught me off guard and I wasn’t expecting it, and so I kissed you back because it seemed like the simplest explanation, problem solved.”

Jenna then asked him if she’d coerced him into kissing him, or pressured him in any way. “Did I coerce you into kissing [me] or doing anything you didn’t want?” to which he answered no. “Did you want to kiss me?” she asked. “Yup!” he responded. “Had I friendzoned you previously and denied your advances?” the streamer ended, to which her ex-flame said yes.

Despite the recent controversy, Jenna has accumulated quite the audience for her Just Chatting stories, and has almost 260,000 followers on Twitch at this time of writing.

She started streaming regularly on the platform in 2016, and has since achieved the coveted Partnered status.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
