Twitch, one of the net’s most popular livestreaming platforms, is a hive for hilarious moments and unscripted mishaps, featuring everything from surprise pranks to actual fist fights – but one broadcaster on the site found himself squaring up against his own home.

With virtual reality making a huge footprint in the gaming scene, more and more streamers are turning to the platform to broadcast these games for their audiences – but not every stream goes as planned.

Twitch streamer ‘Castoreh’ was in the middle of one such VR game when he found himself a little too immersed in the experience.

Castoreh reached down to pick up a pamphlet in the game and stood back up, apparently attempting to throw the issue across the room.

However, Castoreh’s in-game pitching led to a hilarious injury, as he flung his hand out just a little too far, hitting the wall of his room with a solid “whack!”

The streamer cried out in pain but continued his game, leading to an outburst of laughter from his audience in the chat.

Castoreh wouldn’t be the first gamer to have suffered a minor (yet hilarious) injury while immersed in virtual reality, either; YouTuber ‘ricardogonhin’ uploaded a video on January 3 showing his friend having a similar slip-up while loaded down with the proper equipment.

After being outfitted in the appropriate VR attire, the unfortunate victim went to pull out a grenade from her utility belt in the game, quickly realizing that she’d pulled out its pin, in the process.

In a last-ditch attempt to save her character, she ran away from the ensuing explosion – only to run straight into a brick wall by the fireplace.

Virtual reality has also brought other, more wholesome moments to Twitch, such as streamer ‘disruptY2K38’s’ notable project where he challenged himself to wear a VR headset for an entire week.

As can be expected, the streamer pulled off some crazy stunts in order to remain immersed in the VR environment for seven days, finally taking off the headset in a moment of relief at finally seeing the real world.

As developers continue to create more games for players to enjoy in virtual reality, gamers will undoubtedly continue to bring more and more hilarious moments while playing such titles.

TikToker Jaden Hossler accused of “disrespect” by Christian Delgrosso

Jaden Hossler has been accused of being disrespectful by music producer and former vine star Christian Delgrosso who worked on his first single “Comatose.”

Jaden is popular on TikTok with more than 8 million followers, and a former member of TikTok’s Sway House, but he left the collective in May, alongside Josh Richards, to dedicate more time to his music.

Jaden recently appeared on the podcast Kiss and Tell with Sophie Dossi in which he spoke about how he transitioned from wanting to perform pop music to rock music and how that has made him into the success he is now.

In the interview, Jaden said, “I was like yeah let’s do pop music, but then when it got down to it I was like I hate this, so I came back and I was like let’s make a rock song and they were down for it so we did. Then we made up my first song Comatose.”

But, Christian claimed it was actually his idea that launched Jaden’s career in a video posted online. He said: “Now all of a sudden it was his idea to come in and do a rock song… there were like 5 people in the room during the initial conversation that can attest to me completely changing the direction of his music.

“…I didn’t think that the music we were working on had the same potential as what he could do if he did rock music.”

Christian then went on to explain that Jaden didn’t thank them, or call to check on any of them after.

“Just the respect…If you know that I went out of my way and did that for you. He knows it like hasn’t reached out to me at all, hasn’t ever said thank you to me…And he got his deal because of Comatose, the song that we made for him, the song that everyone was oohing and aahing about. Like at least just be respectful.”

While Jaden is yet to respond, Micheal Gruen, the co-founder of TalentX which represents a large number of TikTok creators, let his feelings be known.

In response to Christian, Micheal commented, “Uhm this is total bullshit. 1) I was in a meeting where you said you don’t care about any credit and only care about Jaden and were looking out for him. Where did that love go?

“2) Go on iTunes and it says you’re a writer on Comatose. Idk, that seems like credit to me. 3) there are standard song splits in place. Did you want a bouquet of flowers with that money? Would that have shown you how amazing you are?”

Despite the bad press, Jaden’s music career is showing no signs of slowing down as his latest single “Tonight” with Iann Dior is released today, October 21.
