Twitch streamer WickedSarah was brought to tears after finally crossing the 1,000 subscriber threshold seven years after first broadcasting on the platform.

While the top of Twitch is full of streamers with massive audiences and huge subscriber numbers, smaller streamers often don’t have the same kind of support, and the climb to reaching the top of the platform can be long and seemingly never-ending.

That can make reaching major milestones even more special though, as WickedSarah found out when she reached 1,000 subscribers for the first time, an emotional moment that brought her to tears as she struggled to comprehend what was happening.

While streaming Modern Warfare on November 4, WickedSarah’s started to receive huge amounts of gifted subscribers, eventually taking her up from around 300 to over 900 subscribers.

With her stream drawing to a close, she received 91 gifted subscriptions, which sent her sprawling to the floor in astonishment, unable to grasp the number she had just reached.

After spending a few moments on the floor composing herself, WickedSarah eventually returned to her chair, wiping away tears as she tried to figure out her next step.

“What do I say now?” she asked her chat. “I’m shaking. I went from 300 subs, which I already thought I didn’t even deserve in the slightest, to over 1,000.”

“I spend every day just hoping that you guys will be my friend,” she tearfully continued. “This is above and beyond.”

“I feel really awkward, and corny, and gross right now. I don’t know what else to do. I wish I could give you something, anything.”

WickedSarah’s streaming journey started back in 2012, but after seeing some success with games like Black Ops 2 and GTA V, she admits that a move to variety streaming affected her channel, even if she enjoyed it more. Her return to Call of Duty with Modern Warfare has been a big success, with the streamer admitting that she “loves the game even though she hates it.”

For many Twitch streamers, reaching 1,000 subscribers is something they can only dream of, and reaching that milestone clearly meant a great deal to WickedSarah, who couldn’t hold her emotions in as she celebrated the moment.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”
