Showing off your pets on Twitch can lead to incredibly cute moments for streamers and viewers alike, but can also bring about some hilarious fails as Chisaihato found out.

The classic saying in entertainment is that you should never work with children or animals, but that doesn’t stop plenty of Twitch streamers from including their pets as part of their broadcasts.

For many, their pet isn’t just an extension of the family but truly a part of it, and sharing the relationship with others who also love animals makes for great stream content — especially when they don’t behave as the owners expect.

Twitch: ChisaihatoChisaihato switched to “Cat Cam” at the worst possible moment.

While playing Ratchet and Clank, Chisaihato decided to cut to her cat, telling her chat that she was switching to “Cat Cam” so they could take a look at her feline friend.

Of course, it was at that moment that the kitty decided to lift its hand leg and start washing its rear end, much to the dismay and delight of the streamer, who couldn’t believe the perfect timing the cat had chosen to start licking its backside.

“She’s licking her butt!” laughed the streamer. “Goddamnit Macho, I was trying to show off how cute you were, and then you started licking your butt!”

Twitch isn’t just a place for streamers to show off their pets though, with creators like Maya Higa using her platform to raise thousands of dollars in donations to help support wildlife around the world.

For Chisaihato though, she’ll need to keep an eye on her cat the next time she considers switching her camera to show her pet, although with cats notorious for doing whatever they want, whenever they want, she probably won’t have any idea as to what Machu will be doing once she shows her on stream.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
