As live streaming continues to grow in popularity as both a profession and pastime, more and more broadcasters are reporting odd interactions with overly-enthusiastic fans — one of whom has taken flirting to the next level.

Many a popular Twitch streamer has, unfortunately, dealt with both in-person and online harassment, usually from fans who are vying for a potential relationship with them after watching their broadcasts.

It seems that one fan has taken this kind of flirting to a whole new level, with multiple female Twitch streamers reporting interactions from a single individual with a similar MO.

Partnered Twitch streamer ImSoff reported a strange email she received from a fan – who didn’t seem to understand the address was for business, only.

Partnered streamer ‘ImSoff’ uploaded a series of photos in a Tweet on April 21, showing an email and a photo attachment from a fan who was looking for more than just a shoutout.

“You are very beautiful and very positive,” the fan wrote. “I want to meet you. I watch you from time to time!”

One fan sent some odd pictures in an email attachment to Twitch streamer ImSoff.

The photo attached to the email showed the sender blowing a kiss to the camera and folding his hands in a heart shape, unabashedly flirting with the broadcaster — who was less than enthused by his message.

“Please don’t be this person, this is to my business email zzz,” ImSoff wrote.

However, it doesn’t seem that Soff was the only Twitch streamer to have received an email from this fan — in fact, replies to her Tweet show that several broadcasters have experienced similar interactions with the individual.

“I GOT THE SAME ONE LOOOOL” streamer ‘MissBaffy’ replied, showing identical images sent to her own inbox as the ones ImSoff received.

In fact, one streamer claimed she’s been receiving near-constant emails from the fan for over a year, even though she never replies to him.

“That same guy has been emailing me for almost a year now, and he doesn’t stop even though I never answer,” she Tweeted. “He must have some serious issues.”

Thankfully, it seems as though these streamers have banded together to address a disturbing issue that continues to take place in a community already rife with harassment and stalking.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
