Twitch star ‘Jinny’ had quite a scare during a September 8 IRL broadcast while visiting Denmark and trying to feed deer.

The popular streamer was going through a tourist area where people can pet and interact with deer. Being quite the joker, Jinny told her chat she was in search of a “legendary deer.”

While in a new area, she spotted a white deer – something her chat dubbed “shiny” in a clear Pokemon reference. However, as she approached the animal, she was in store for a rude awakening.

Mere moments after entering this area, Jinny found herself under attack by an aggressive buck who used his antlers to poke and scratch the vacationing streamer.

“Oh no! Do not attack!” she begged the buck, who used its antlers to go after her plastic bag of food. “Oh my god. Don’t do that! Don’t use your horn.”

The deer seemed to finally let up after Jinny gave it some food, but the moment of peace was only temporary, as she began to be poked in her backside.

“Someone attacked my a**,” she exclaimed as she wandered away from the deer and directly into contact with another angry buck who appeared to headbutt her with his antlers.

Eventually, Jinny just put her bags on the ground and let the animals dig in – but even though she surrendered the food, they continued their aggressive behavior, even more so when she tried to take her food away.

As she backed away, the deer viciously headbutted the streamer and ran off with her personal bag – and could have even gored her in the stomach with its antlers, had things gone south. This moment was nearly a disaster, as Jinny has had her passport and other items stolen on trips in the past.

Luckily, the deer ended up dropping the bag and a man returned it to the streamer. Nonetheless, the incident was clearly one that Jinny should be thankful didn’t result in serious injury or even robbery.

There’s no telling what other crazy adventures Jinny will get into while touring Europe.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
