As one of the net’s most popular livestreaming platforms, Twitch sees a constant influx of unforgettable moments, from peanut-butter wrestling to surprise proposals – but one streamer was part of an instance that left him speechless.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘Mizkif’ was in the middle of a World of Warcraft broadcast on May 18 when he received a touching donation message from a fan, who claimed that both he and his little brother would watch Mizkif’s streams while waiting on his brother’s open heart surgery.

In a heart-wrenching twist, the fan revealed that his little brother had passed away on Thursday – leading to an emotional reaction from Mizkif.

“My little brother and I would stay up for hours watching your streams/vods while he was waiting for his open heart surgery,” the fan wrote. “He passed away this Thursday and I just wanted to say thank you for making him smile every day. Thank you for everything you do. Thanks.”

Mizkif was understandably left speechless by the fan’s message, taking a moment to process their message while staring at his monitor.

“What?” he said after a long pause. “Dude, I’m so sorry. Fuck, I’m sorry, dude. That sucks. Are you being serious? I can’t tell if you’re being serious.”

Mizkif’s chat exploded with hearts and ‘pepehands’ emotes in response to the message, while commenters across Reddit expressed similar sentiments – with one commenter noting that they, too, will have to undergo open heart surgery in the future.

Reddit commenters flocked to comfort a viewer, who resonated with Mizkif’s stream clip due to having a heart condition, themselves.

“I have a heart condition and will eventually have to go in for open heart surgery soon in my life,” the commenter wrote. “Shit like this hurts to watch.”

The fan’s message likely hit close to home due to Mizkif’s own heart condition, which he mentioned in a somber Tweet in November 2018.

“…I’ve been in and out of the hospital the past 24 hours because I’m having really bad heart palpitations,” Mizkif wrote of his condition. “Don’t think I’m dying or anything, I’ve had heart problems for a while now but I gotta fix this.”

This touching moment follows yet another emotional instance on the platform, where members of a Brazilian GTA role playing server came out en masse in a tribute to a 16-year-old YouTuber, who had passed away due to a health condition that affected his muscles.

Despite the well-documented vitriol in online communities, Twitch can also be a haven for wholesome moments, like this one.

Charli D’Amelio reveals her weirdest makeup faux pas with Maddie Ziegler

Charli D’Amelio is more than TikTok’s queen bee; she’s also a competitive dancer, Dunkin’ Donuts connoisseur, and a full-blown makeup mogul, although she hasn’t always been the expert beauty guru she is today.

Charli revealed her collaboration with makeup giant Morphe in late July alongside older sister Dixie, bringing forth a slew of new products for fans to use and express their inner creativity.

That’s not all; Dixie has also had her face beat by none other than James Charles, who gave the TikToker a glamorous makeover that has scored well over 34 million views at the time of writing.

Considering her love for all things beauty and makeup, it comes as little surprise that Charli has a solid handle on new trends and products — but this wasn’t always the case, as she revealed during an October 27 video with fellow TikToker Maddie Ziegler.

During the video, in which the two gals gave fans a tutorial of their everyday makeup routine, Charli revealed that she often asks other names in the beauty space for help — most notably, James Charles.

In fact, Charli revealed that it was James who taught her that you have to dampen your beauty blender before applying any product to the face, a fact that appeared to catch Ziegler completely off-guard.

YouTuber James Charles collaborated with D’Amelio for a colorful makeup look, where the TikTok star opened up about the more difficult parts of being internet famous.

“I’ve been able to definitely ask a lot of questions from a lot of makeup artists that I’ve worked with,” she began. “It’s been everything. Like, I didn’t even know that I was supposed to wet my beauty blender until like, a few months ago.”

“James was like, ‘You know you’re supposed to wet that, right?’” she continued, drawing a shocked, “Really?” from Ziegler. “And I was like, ‘Ohhh.’ I call James all the time, and I’m like, ‘Hey, I don’t know how to do this. Can you help me?’”

Luckily for Charli, she’s surrounded by many kind and helpful creators who are available to help coach her through the ins and outs of makeup artistry — something that she claims she still “needs a little bit more help with.”

Both TikTokers were quick to note that everyone is on a different stage in their makeup journey, and no matter what part you’re at, it’s always a fun time experimenting with new looks and products.
