A Twitch streamer was left thoroughly disturbed after she and her friend were followed by a man with a sword during a Halloween livestream in Japan.

While one of the most popular things for creators to do on stream is play games, a particular genre that has risen in popularity over the years focuses on people streaming while they’re out and about, literally called IRL (In Real Life) streams.

Though naturally, if you walk around outside for long enough you’re bound to bump into something strange, and people always like to take a shot at getting on camera, whether they know who the streamer is or not.

Elliegato was one such streamer who was left rattled when her fun Halloween night in Tokyo turned into a bizarre chase scene, leaving her and her friend freaked out to say the least.

Central Tokyo-based Ellie was out for an evening stroll and some food with one of her friends, but things started getting a tad hectic when people began asking for selfies with her. Slightly confused, she agreed to take pictures with the strangers, but one person in particular caught their eye.

The man was dressed in red with a wonky cap, and appeared to be carrying a sword. As the guy walked along by them, the girls immediately looked concerned, saying “why is this guy following us? Why is he following us?” The man was smiling, and kept a fast pace with the girls who tried to shake off the weird stranger.

As they decided to go a different way, the man keenly changed his direction too, holding his sword up by his side. Every time the girls made a u-turn, the stranger followed without fail, further making them uncomfortable.

Ellie says to her friend “let’s go find your husband” in hopes the man would give up, but he kept up an unnervingly fast pace alongside them. “He’s like fully running and following us,” she said.

It didn’t help that along their escape, several other men spoke to them and touched them inappropriately, making viewers feel even more anxious on the girls’ behalf.

Eventually a kind stranger noticed the girls running from the man, and said he’d help them go to the police, looking just as frantic as the streamers.

Ellie looked extremely distressed by the time the stream ended, the shocking nature of the situation sinking in. It’s not clear who the man was or what he wanted, but it certainly wasn’t a fun experience for the pair who just wanted to enjoy their Halloween evening.

Call of Duty

xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
