Twitch streamer stunned after meeting swearing two-year old in VR Chat

A Twitch streamer exploded into fits of hysterics after they had a rather unexpected run-in with a two-year-old who couldn’t stop swearing during their VR Chat session.

Since VR Chat’s free-to-play release on Steam in 2017, virtual reality system owners have thoroughly enjoyed using the platform to communicate with friends and even meet strangers in the digital world.

Sometimes not all encounters are what you’d expect, though, as one streamer found out on December 27 when he ran into a rather young child who couldn’t stop cursing. While the encounter is a week old at this time of writing, it was recently posted again on the Livestream Fails subreddit.

‎VRChat IncVR Chat allows players to become their avatars as they meet people in the digital world.

A swearing two-year-old

HazordVR was playing the virtual experience with friends when he randomly heard a voice over proximity chat that sounded like a kid. “What the…? Oh my God, you sound so young! Hello!” he exclaimed upon hearing the child talk.

What he wasn’t expecting next was the young player’s response. “F**K!” the kid suddenly shouted after a couple of seconds, which sent the streamer and everyone surrounding him into hysterics.

“What?” the child asked innocently, as the players continued to die with laughter. “Don’t say that!” Hazord replied. “Don’t say that word, okay? Please? Don’t say that word, okay?”

“SH*T!” the kid shrieked, which caused everyone to break out into fits of giggles again.

“Kappa, say kappa,” a random stranger asked, to which the young player responded with “Kappa… POGCHAMP!” – a sign that he’d probably learned the language from Twitch.

“Do you know how old she is, T?” the streamer asked his friend. “Two!” the child responded, to which Hazord asked, “Poo? Oh, you’re two? Aww, you’re so TINY! Oh my goodness!”

“I’m not tiny, I’m big boy!” the two-year-old replied. “Okay, you’re a big boy,” the VR Chat player said as he patted his avatar on the head.

VR Chat is actually restricted to ages 13 and up, meaning that the child was far too young to be playing the game at all, let alone talking to and interacting with strangers, and violated the Terms of Service.

The virtual reality title has often been criticized for having such a low age restriction as it’s known to host content that isn’t suitable for users under the age of 18.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
