A Twitch streamer was shocked and reduced to tears when she went live and saw a multitude of messages from her devoted fans sharing what she means to them.

Streamers often tend to share a special bond with their fans, especially those who tune in every day and will sit there, enjoy their content and have conversations with them on a regular basis.

That said, sometimes it’s hard to explain what that relationship is, why a viewer enjoys watching a particular streamer so much or how the streamer engages with their audience.

This moment from GabbyRose’s Twitch stream says it all, though.

GabbyRose isnt the biggest streamer — but her viewers might be some of the most dedicated on Twitch.

Gabby is a variety streamer that will often play a multitude of games on stream, ranging from Hollow Knight to Among Us to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Thanks to her lighthearted persona and stress-free content, she’s built up a dedicated audience that clearly love her: and they let her know it, with a message board of open letters from some of her biggest fans, explaining why they love her work and her as a person, too.

Naturally, it didn’t take long for the waterworks to start, despite her best attempts to hold the tears back, and it took her a while to find the words to even respond.

Finally, after a few minutes flicking through the messages and reading them to herself, she simply said “thank you so much” to those who had written to her and, after a few more minutes to cool down, managed to get the stream back on track as usual.

It’s rare you see streamers really get to pay attention to how much love they get. While subscribers, donations and the like are often shown as appreciation, it’s rare someone’s viewers will openly write them letters to thank them for their broadcasts, but it’s really great to see.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
