Twitch streamer shares incredibly wholesome moment with pet bird

Runescape streamer Odablock had one of the most heartwarming encounters ever while he was streaming with his pet bird on his arm.

Animal streams and jokes about certain animal streams are nothing new on Twitch, but Odablock’s feathered friend is unique because as a parrot, they can talk back.

The bird, whose name we haven’t been able to discover, wasn’t on Odablock’s arm for the entire stream but did make their presence felt while they were on camera.

Odablock primarily streams Old School Runescape and his bird has made appearances on stream before, but none have been as adorable as what happened on the November 24 stream.

Luckily, Old School Runescape can easily be played with one hand, so Oda was able to hold his pal while streaming. Out of nowhere, the bird caws out “I love you,” a few times before chat urges the streamer to say it back.

“I love you more,” Odablock replied, before gazing into the eyes of the affectionate tropical bird – while keeping an eye out for pecks of course.

The bird didn’t stick around for the whole stream as Oda eventually had to rest his arm, but they definitely did make their time count.

What we want to know is, does the bird watch the stream? If so, does it like Old School Runescape as much as Odablock does, or does it even care? The world wants to know.

During the same stream, Oda also got absolutely fleeced during a duel with another player, resulting in millions of lost currency.

The streamer seemed to hit his opponent first, which should have sealed the duel in his favor, but it seemed Runescape had other plans.

Maybe if his feathered friend had still been around, Odablock’s luck could have been a little different, or the loss would have been a little less painful.


Jake Paul claims Disney didn’t fire him after Bizaardvark controversy

Jake Paul has dismissed new claims he was fired by Disney back in 2017 during his stint on sitcom Bizaardvark, addressing the three-and-a-half-year-old controversy in a recent interview.

Jake Paul, while juggling his YouTube and Vine antics back in 2017, was fast-becoming one of Disney’s biggest stars. The then 20-year-old played Dirk Mann on the sitcom Bizaardvark for two seasons.

However, his stay on the set was cut abruptly short in June 2017. He parted ways with the project, and there was a mixed reaction.

Back then, Jake Paul said that he and Disney “came to the agreement” to mutually part ways. However, others have claimed the star was fired over a series of controversies, including a news segment that saw neighbours complain about the then-Disney star.

Paul has rubbished those claims though. He doubled down on his initial statement three years ago, saying that he played along with the community sentiment as a joke.

“It’s funny because, for the last three years I’ve sort of ran with everyone saying, “Oh, he got fired,” just because I think it’s funnier to say, “I got fired by Disney,” but in reality it was a mutual decision to split from each other,” he told The Daily Beast.

The decision was purely a business one, according to Paul. He wanted more money, and Disney wasn’t offering it.

“They weren’t paying me enough. I was making millions more — per week — than I was on that show, and it was a mutual decision for us to split up,” he added.

“Everyone I worked with on that show was fantastic, but from a business standpoint it didn’t make sense. I was aging up and wanted more money.”

Jake Paul has managed to grow his career despite his Disney exit in 2017.

Jake Paul has since gone on to grow his career on YouTube, even expanding into boxing the likes of AnEsonGib on a Mike Tyson card, something the younger Paul brother said was the highlight of his life.

However, the real reasoning behind his parting with Disney will always be questioned.
