Popular Twitch streamer and former esports pro ‘Roflgator’ was confronted with an unfortunate pest problem during a March 31 livestream — and he had a jaw-dropping way of dealing with the issue.

During a VR Chat session with fellow streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris, xQc and others, Roflgator announced he was worried there might be a rat in his room, breaking off from the conversation to handle the rodent.

“Alright, I’m gonna go after it,” he told his chat. “I seriously think I heard something over there, dude. I’m 100 percent sure there’s something there.”

The streamer even adjusted his camera to give viewers a better look at the proceedings, moving his furniture aside for a chance at catching the animal unaware. However, his ultimate strategy for pinning down the pest saw him use an unlikely tool — and it wasn’t a mousetrap.

Instead, Roflgator theorized that the rodent was hiding in an empty bag of Ruffles chips sitting on a chair in his room, which he quickly closed and held up to the camera.

“It might be in this bag, dude — it’s in the bag!” he exclaimed. “I swear to god it’s in this f**king — it’s in the Ruffles bag! I f**king caught it! I swear to god, it’s in here. …I just caught a f**king rat in a Ruffles bag!”

To prove his point, Roflgator sat back down at his setup and cautiously opened the bag on camera, afraid that the mouse would try to make an escape.

“I’m scared to open it, dude, it’s gonna come out!” he exclaimed. “What do I do, do I just throw the bag out the window?”

Thankfully, the rat didn’t try to make a mad dash for it — and while Roflgator was able to see the pest in the footage, it might be a bit harder for viewers to make out the mouse in the shaky clip.

Luckily, Roflgator won’t have to deal with the rodent any longer, thanks to his lucky break in catching the animal snacking on his leftover junk food.

We do hope, however, that he ends up giving his streaming space a deep clean to avoid such such issues in the future.

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.
