A Twitch streamer was left fuming after poor internet connectivity plagued his broadcast until he finally exploded with rage, taking it out on his keyboard.

There is nothing more frustrating than mentally being ready to jump into your favorite game or watching a movie on Netflix when the internet drops out, quickly spoiling your evening plans as you spend the next hour on the phone with your ISP.

However, one Twitch streamer took his frustrations to an extreme level when his internet connection continuously failed him during his broadcast, and after failing to fix the issue, took all his rage out on his keyboard… Literally.

Streamer’s internet issues

Streamer ‘neekynooky’ was settling in for a couple hours of Teamfight Tactics when his broadcast started having issues from the very beginning. “It’s freakin’ bipolar, bro. Either work or don’t work. Now it doesn’t want to work again. I swear to God…” he complained to his chat.

When someone told him to call up his ISP again, he explained that he had someone coming over to fix it soon. “I have a technician coming tomorrow at 10 in the morning,” the streamer said, before getting angry and lifting the keyboard over his head. “I swear to God, I’m going to break this!”

As the streamer sat there and stewed in his frustrations, he suddenly began to huff and puff as he aggressively snatched up his keyboard and held it above his head, with his hands shaking in rage.

However, he decided to put his keyboard down, and then yelled “Dude look!” as he replied to his chat and continued to show them his internet browser not loading.

The streamer finally exploded in rage

Neekynooky, clearly agitated, ranted “It’s 2019, I live in a first world country and my internet is not working!” before he exploded in rage as he picked up his keyboard, snapped it in half over his knee, and completely obliterated it.

He then stood up and threw what remained of his keyboard across the room before sitting back down. “There goes my keyboard, broken.” the Teamfight Tactics streamer exclaimed. “I can’t deal with this! I have to go before I break everything in my house!”

Neekynooky’s stream finally came to an end after just 13 minutes – three quarters of which were spent trying to get his internet to work.

Singer-songwriter Halsey is pregnant – and social media, from influencers and YouTubers to countless fans, has lit up with congratulations for the beloved cultural sensation.

Ashley ‘Halsey’ Nicolette Frangipane is an American singer-songwriter with Grammy nominations, Billboard accolades and, above all else, a feverish social media following. Known for her activism and eclecticism, the musician has become a cultural icon with fans across the world.

That variety of fans is not restrained to just social media stans, either, as the singer has apparently amassed a ton of appreciation from fellow influencers. Some of the biggest names from YouTube and social media have popped up congratulating her, nestled between messages from the 36.9 million followers Halsey boasts throughout Instagram and Twitter. 

Posting a “surprise” Instagram carousel of baby bump pictures, the 26-year-old’s comment section is filled with verified check marks sending their love and joy. From established models (and fellow activists) like Emily Ratajkowski to YouTube superstars like James Charles, the support has been nothing short of overflowing.

In the replies to Halsey’s viral IG post, influencer Gabbie Hanna was joined by TikTok legend Addison Rae by sending an ecstatic “congratulations” message. Singer Olivia Rodrigo, whose “Drivers License” track has gone viral on TikTok, joined in too, but wasn’t satisfied with just one message.

In all caps (the pinnacle of excitement), Rodrigo sent a “YESSSS” before following up with a “SENDING U SO MUCH LOVE.”

Similarly uppercased, Charles chimed in with a reply that seems to concisely echo the sentiments shared by all of Halsey’s fans and friends: “CONGRATULATIONS AHHH.”

Aside from being happy about the idea of a mini version of Halsey entering the world, close fans are likely well-aware of how meaningful the moment is for her. The singer has been candid about her past with infertility and her desire for a child, as a 2015 miscarriage prompted the song “More” on her Manic album.

In the wake of such a harrowing history with the desire to bear a child, the news of Halsey’s pregnancy is certainly cause for celebration. Caps-locked congratulations are most certainly in order and few, influencers and fans alike, have held back in rejoicing with the singer and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin.

“More,” too, can now be played with added joy. Some of its more expressive lyrics take on a new dimension, as a foreseeing welcome to her baby: “And when you decide it’s your time to arrive, I’ve loved you for all of my life.”
