Popular Twitch star Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp hilariously trolled his audience with plans to “join” Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek at Mixer, following the former CSGO pro’s announcement that he’d joined the Microsoft-owned streaming platform.

Twitch was dealt a major blow in August when Microsoft signed Fortnite star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins to exclusively broadcast on its platform, and left many wondering if any other streamers could also be in talks to leave as well. 

Then on October 24, popular streamer shroud shocked fans with the announcement that he would also be leaving for Mixer. Seeing the humor in the moment, League of Legends streamer Tyler1 hilariously joked that he was going to join him.

Addressing shroud’s sudden departure from Twitch, Tyler told his audience, “I see shroud decided to say deuces Twitch!” before flashing the “peace out” gesture with his hands. “And shroud moved to f*cking Mixer!”

Shaking his head, the streamer then looked to his left before exiting off camera, only to return and reveal that he had packed his bags to leave. 

“And I’m fin to join him have a good day!” Tyler exclaimed, before putting his headset down and moving for the door carrying his luggage.

While the popular streamer was clearly messing around, he eventually came back and gave his own thoughts on the deal, as those in chat had been asking him to share his thoughts on shroud leaving the streaming platform.

“I mean, I don’t really care dude. It is what it is. As long as he’s happy man. Good for him”, the League of Legends streamer said supportively.

Despite wishing shroud well, the streamer had a comical observation about Twitch putting its marketing muscle behind the Mixer star at TwitchCon 2019. 

“It’s crazy because at Twitchcon they advertised a whole bunch of streamers,” he said. “On like billboards and airport panels, and shroud was like f**king plastered everywhere.”

After being amused by the fact that shroud then left for Mixer, Tyler sent a message directly to the streaming platform and exclaimed, “Hey, next time, Twitch – advertise me! Dumb a**es!”

Shroud’s move to Mixer has created waves in the streaming industry, as the former CSGO pro was the biggest channel on Twitch after Ninja had left only months prior to join the Microsoft-owned platform.

However, while many were shocked by the sudden departure of the Twitch star, most of his fellow streamers have wished him well, and have no hard feelings towards him moving on to his new home.

Pokimane denies new Fedmyster claims, says he sent “admission of guilt”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has hit back at claims made by former OfflineTV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan in a leaked exposé document, and revealed the disgraced Twitch star sent her what she believes is an “admission of guilt.”

Earlier this year, the OfflineTV house was rocked by accusations of harassment and misconduct leveled at former editor-turned-personality Fedmyster.

Several members of the Twitch content group, including Lilypichu and Yvonne, detailed how Gaytan would “come to [their] room, drunk” and “massage [their] feet and thighs.” Yvonne also revealed he had “crawled in bed” with her, kissed her cheek, and put his hand up her shirt.

These accusations were compounded when Pokimane claimed Fed had been a “big reason” why she moved out of the house. Fedmyster was subsequently expelled from the OfflineTV house, and removed from the company.

After months of silence from the Twitch streamer, a document leaked online on Nov. 24, which mainly detailed Fed’s relationship with Pokimane. In the unreleased exposé titled “My Truth”, which Dexerto has read copies of, Gaytan, 25, accused Pokimane of “twisting the truth” about their relationship.

Pokimane has now hit back, speaking about the leaked document in a short Twitch stream on Wednesday. In her response, she suggests Fedmyster sent her an “admission of guilt” in regards to his “manipulative” actions.

Fedmyster’s leaked doc, “My Truth,” mainly revolves around his relationship with Pokimane.

Fedmyster allegedly sent Pokimane “admission of guilt”

Anys, who admitted she’s already seen several versions of the Fedmyster document, doubled down on her previous June 29 claims. According to the Twitch star, Fed’s claim to a potential hookup, Steve, that they were “a thing” was the best example of his manipulation.

“I want to make it clear that, to me, this incident [with Steve] was clearly a mess-up on Fed’s part. I confronted Fed, he apologized… he admitted fault,” she said.

Pokimane revealed she messaged Fedmyster ahead of her ‘tell-all’ stream in June, asking if there was anything she “should maybe leave out.” When Gaytan requested she skip over the incident with Steve at the party, however, she refused.

“He said ‘if you can… leave out the Steve stuff, it’s something I wouldn’t like mentioned.’ I couldn’t leave that out. He asked me not to mention it, and I think that’s an admission of guilt, then later he says ‘that’s not how it went down’.”

Pokimane says Fed’s claims ‘overshadow’ real issue

The problem, she continued, is that Fed has focused on her being a “villain” and leading him on in the leaked document. This focus, which she believes “blows everything out of proportion,” is being used to overshadow the actual OfflineTV accusations.

“Essentially we had trouble being close but managing our friendship, knowing he wanted more, but I always felt I was upfront about it… it really bothers me that in this document he tried to make me out as the bad guy,” Pokimane said.

“Obviously we weren’t on the same page. I hope you guys can see this from my perspective… I didn’t see a future between the two of us. I thought I was always honest. Looking back, I should have been more aware of how I acted around him, but hindsight is 20/20!

“To me, in all honesty, all of this is just not important. It’s regular 20-year-old relationship bullsh*t. What I shared about the situation is my honest truth, and it’s totally irrelevant to the actual incidents that triggered all of this.”

Fedmyster says he “stands by document”

Fedmyster has addressed the leaked document too; according to the disgraced Twitch star, he had no plans to release the exposé, because it felt like “airing dirty laundry.”

“[Poki and I] came to agree that keeping things private and making no further statements publicly was what was best for us…We wanted to heal and prevent any further harm to the people involved,” he explained in a short Twitter post.

“On the topic of whether I tried to manipulate our friends to hate her, I still fully stand behind what my document reads but I want to emphasize that it wasn’t my intention to shine Poki in a bad light… I am deeply sorry, and wish I wasn’t so naive and insensitive.”

Fedmyster also said he “still believes [he] was mischaracterized,” but added “after talking to Poki I came to understand her perspective. My outlook on the situation as a whole now comes from a better place of understanding.”

Hours after finishing her stream, Anys took to her second Twitter account, where she said she was “looking forward to moving on” from the whole situation.

“Sorry, td was tough, it’s hard for me to reply to v private things without making the situation messier + I was not in a good headspace,” she wrote. “ty to those that were understanding. looking forward to moving on.”

Yvonne and Lilypichu, who were the first to level harassment allegations against Fedmyster, have not yet publicly addressed the leaked document.
