An Apex Legends streamer broke down in tears after receiving a massive host from the second most followed streamer, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, and gaining his legion of viewers.

When finishing up a stream, Twitch streamers have the option to send their viewers to another channel with ‘hosting’, or let them disperse to wherever else they’re going. Some streamers may opt to host their friends and people they know before going offline, but others will try and find a smaller channel to support.

After his June 21 stream had concluded, shroud dug through the Apex Legends category on Twitch to find somebody worth handing over a host to. He uncovered KineticNinja after a few scrolls and sent over 18,000 viewers in their direction.

Twitch: shroudShroud is one of the faces of Twitch, regularly attracting thousands of viewers.

The small streamer, who had only been broadcasting to a handful of viewers at the time, was immediately stunned at what was unfolding on his channel. It may have resulted in him losing out on a potential win in Apex Legends but he didn’t care.

“Shroud, dude, I don’t even know what to say right now bro,” started KineticNinja as he tried to find a way to thank the former CS:GO pro. “This is absolutely insane. Thank you wouldn’t cover it! Thank you is not enough, words cannot express what I’m going through right now – holy shit.”

After realizing just how many viewers had made the jump over to his channel from shroud’s, the streamer was moved to tears and still pretty hype about the whole thing.

“Shroud, thank you so much for choosing me,” he continued while wiping away tears. “Out of all the people in this world, you made my Friday night. Shit, you made this entire year’s worth of streaming worth it man. Thank you so fucking much brother.”

Yet, it wasn’t just the popular stream that KineticNinja wanted to thank. As a result of the host, plenty of shroud’s viewers began following and donating bits to his channel. Although he wanted to thank everyone individually, his chat was moving far too fast for him to keep up with.

It isn’t the first time that shroud has used his massive platform to change a small streamers day, but it may be the most emotional example of the power he holds on Twitch.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
