Twitch streamer Kailey ‘KBubblez’ has claimed that Reddit has “ruined” her life and prompted her to cut down on streaming amid an emotional late-night broadcast. 

When it comes to livestreaming, unplanned moments and in-game highlights will usually end up as a clip that can be shared around the internet – be they positive or negative.

If its a negative clip that goes viral, streamers like KBubblez – who has over 100k followers on Twitch and prompted anger for her bad driving back in June – usually have to explain themselves. Yet, that can all have an adverse effect on a channel and person.

Twitter: KaileybubzKbubblez has over 100,000 followers on Twitch and 20,000 on Twitter.

During her September 26 stream, the IRL streamer was emotionally talking to viewers about her Twitch channel – becoming emotional when talking about a lack of content, having haters, and not attending TwitchCon while everybody else was.

Some viewers piled on with the trolling, spamming negative comments, while some fans tried to lift her up, telling her to ignore the trolls and outsiders. “Ignore the haters, I know, but it’s just like – you literally don’t understand how bad it sucks, like, especially like I don’t know,” she said, before losing her train of thought.

The streamer carried on, dissecting the downturn in her channel and explaining that she didn’t ‘deserve’ the support that fans were giving her because she hadn’t been streaming. Again, though, the attention turned to the haters.

Some viewers told her to stay off Reddit if she sees negative comments about herself there, before the streamer explained why she can’t. “I want to be banned from Reddit,” she added.

“I feel like Reddit ruined my life. Like, I know I’m a really bad driver – or at least, that clip looked really bad, I think thats what started it all,” Kbubblez explained, referring to that infamous on-stream moment that went viral.

However, the word of her talking down the LivestreamFail subreddit and it’s users made it’s way over there within minutes, prompting further tears and frustration from the streamer.

“I’m on livestream fails already,” she said before checking it out. After a few moments of silence, she added: “Every time I’m on stream – and that’s why I don’t want to do it anymore.”

Despite that statement, KBubblez continued on with her broadcast for a few more hours, continuing to chat to viewers about their support and what she could do to turn her channel around.

Yet, it remains to be seen if she’ll be back streaming on a regular basis or if she’ll let the haters win and take a turn away from the platform.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
