A Twitch streamer has broadcasted himself kicking his roommate out of his apartment, explaining that he simply doesn’t want her there anymore.

On January 15, ‘tehsyntax’ went live on Twitch, with his stream titled “Kicking a freeloader out of my apartment. Not clickbait shes on her way here now from work.”

Shortly after the woman arrived at the apartment, tehsyntax confronted her and asked her to leave immediately, initially taking her by surprise completely.

“We gotta talk for a second” the streamer said, “I’ve got to take my space back, so we should probably figure something out.”

Not realizing the immediacy of the request, the woman apologized “for all the drama” and said she could get our stuff out, asking “when do you need me out by?”


“It would probably be ideal, like, now,” the streamer replied. Surprised, the woman responds “wow, wow, can we talk about this?” To which he promptly says “no. I just don’t want you here anymore.”

“Is it because I’m not putting out?” the woman asks, but tehsyntax explains it’s simply because he doesn’t want her there anymore.

“I haven’t had a roommate since 2013, and I hated it then,” he concludes, clearly not budging on his position.

The woman explains that she can’t take everything at that moment, as she has nowhere to take it, but he simply suggests she take it to a hotel room instead.


The woman explains that she has offered to pay rent in the past, but the streamer explains that there are apparently legal issues with the lease that make it unfeasible.

As for why he streamed the eviction, he explained in a chat comment, “I let a friend crash at my place for free but she thinks she owns the f**king place. She also locked me out of my own apartment and fed my dog popcorn making him very sick. Wanted to record this for the record so she [doesn’t] claim some crazy sh*t but figured [why] not stream it.”


He also explained that the woman had been there for two weeks. He suggested that squatter laws may have caused legal issues if his friend had stayed for longer.
Once the woman had left, he addressed his stream, clarifying that he doesn’t believe it’s against Twitch community guidelines to secretly stream someone when in his own property.
However, Twitch does have strict privacy rules, which prohibits “Sharing content that violates another’s reasonable expectation of privacy, for example streaming from a private space, without permission.” It’s unknown if this broadcast falls under these terms, given it was tehsyntax’s property.
