A Twitch streamer known as “Astro” was quickly forced to explain himself after his mom walked in at the worst possible moment of his livestream.

It is not often easy for Twitch streamers who stream for long hours in a day, often leading to many entertaining slip-ups for fans to enjoy.

However, in Astro’s case, he decided to make a crude joke singing along to the Ninja’s infamous Pon Pon song at the worst time, while playing one of the most popular musical and rhythm games, “osu!”, on his livestream.

The musical game features “beatmaps” which can often be made by the community, where players have to react on screen to the rhythm of the song playing.

Astro found himself playing one of the community-made beatmaps which featured an anime image as the background, however, while playing the game he began crudely singing to the song completely unaware his mom had entered his room, “What’s this sticky stuff on me?”

Fortunately for the Twitch streamer the encounter was not caught on camera as he had been streaming without a facecam, although the audio from his microphone was enough to determine how awkward the situation had become.

Astro quickly changed his screen from the game after realizing how bad it might have looked to her walking in, “Jesus!” he said, which was followed by a quick gasp, “Hi mom.”

His door could be heard slamming in the background shortly after and the streamer quickly chased after her to try explain the awkward encounter, “wait mom, it’s not what it looks like, mom!”

Astro returned moments later and expressed to his viewers that the explanation had not gone down well, simply saying, “I’m in big trouble.”

Despite the streamer’s frustration, many of his viewers found it to be highly entertaining with the clip amassing almost 50,000 views within a few hours.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
