“Oh my God, this is going to be a penis, isn’t it?” the streamer exclaimed, before grabbing her phone to navigate to the Instagram app.
Suddenly, the Twitch Partner burst into hysterics at what she’d read on her phone screen and said “My God, this is so sad!” before reading out the message. “My grandma is in the hospital and she’s going to die, and she is a lesbian but she’s never seen boobs in her life. Can she please see yours?” it said.
“That’s so charming!” Katherine laughed. “Hahaha, oh man! Oh my God, that’s so sad! Help… Help this grandma!”
