Twitch streamer stunned as notorious donator reclaims thousands for malicious reasons

Twitch streamers can earn money through donations on the platform, but a recent exchange between Jordyx3 and a donator shows just how cruel it can be when players decide to take that money back through PayPal.

The full-time broadcaster, who can often be seen playing Fortnite Battle Royale, was delighted to see that one of his regular viewers, ChubaPapi21, had received a total of $5,100 to him across four separate donations. 

Presuming that the user was enjoying his content, as most streamers would expect, Jordyx3 was alarmed when he noticed that the payments were being challenged by a PayPal chargeback six months later.

Epic Games, Fortnite INTELJordyx3 can be seen streaming Fortnite Battle Royale regularly on Twitch.

Confused by what was happening, the gamer tried to reach out to the donator by searching for his social media accounts, only to find out that they had all been deleted.

However, this wasn’t the last Jordy heard from the donator. He reappeared during another one of his streams under a new name, claiming to have plotted everything that happened to cause “hurt.”

He revealed that he had done it to “hurt people around you, your viewers [and] streamer’s viewers,” which wasn’t what the streamer had expected at all, initially speculating that the donator may have been in some financial trouble. That wasn’t the case.

ChubaPapi21 then changed their name to Stefansandan on Twitch and spoke openly about their reasons for refunding the payment, according to screenshots posted to Jordy’s Twitter account. 

“I did it for the satisfaction of hurting everyone else,” Stefansandan wrote in a whisper message to the streamer. “How does it feel to know that I have all the money in the world and you’re worried about debt collectors coming after you?”

A number of other viewers have since donated to Jordy’s stream to seemingly cancel out the $5,100 hit that he took with this PayPal chargeback.

According to the streamer, it only took two hours for him to get his money back. However, not all broadcasters on Twitch facing similar problems will be as lucky.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
