Twitch streamer justaminx was left terrified after a classic donation prank, which also prompted her to throw her headphones to the floor. 

When it comes to streaming on Twitch, viewers can support streamers through subscriptions, donating money, or dropping bits on the channel.

With that, many streamers opt to use programs like text to speech and media players that allow subscribers or donators to play a message or even choose a song. Sometimes though, trolls get through and disrupt the flow of things with loud noises. That cruel fate fell upon justaminx who was left terrified by the extremely loud disruption. 

Twitter: JustaminxJustaminx can usually be found streaming while cosplaying.

During her December 7 stream, the small streamer had been celebrating and dancing along to the 2018 hit song ‘Just got paid’ as she racked up new followers and broke way past her subscriber goal for the broadcast. 

As she danced along, an anonymous viewer donated 750 bits – or the equivalent of $7.50 to justaminx – with a Jump Scare sound attached. As the scream roared out, the streamer’s moment of zen was interrupted, prompting her to scream herself.

Being so terrified by the noise, justaminx threw her headphones away but as they bounced off her desk, the broadcaster had to retrieve them before any further damage was done. 

Instead of screaming at the donator for doing what they’d done or talking about it, the streamer opted to give a deathly stare down the barrel of her camera before offering up a similar look to her screen.

Of course, she probably wouldn’t have had much luck anyway addressing a single person as the donation came through an ‘anonymous’ account. 

Either way, though, it highlights the danger that streamers face when they open themselves up to allowing fans and viewers to play a part in the stream.

Many of the donations will probably come with a song or a meme of some kind, but there are plenty of trolls out there who are looking to make their mark and have a joke at the streamer’s expense.

Logan Paul reacts to Jake calling him a “fake fighter” before Floyd Mayweather bout

YouTube star Logan Paul is set to throw down with undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather this February — but little brother Jake Paul isn’t a fan of their upcoming bout, even calling his sibling a “fake fighter.”

The Paul brothers have unexpectedly shifted from their careers as top-tier YouTubers into white-collar boxers. Ever since August 2018, the two have dedicated their time to training and scoring high-profile matches; and Logan may have taken the cream of the crop.

On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Logan would be fighting 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in a “Super Exhibition” match in February 2021. This news seemed to overshadow Jake’s 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson a week prior, which may have influenced his thoughts on his older brother’s upcoming match.

“My brother is f**ked,” Jake taunted in an interview with TMZ. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1, I’m 3-0.”

A week later, Logan has finally responded to his little bro’s scathing words — and it’s safe to say that he’s a little confused as to where the venom is coming from, although he’s completely unfazed by the insults.

“I’m like, little brothers up to some s**t, like he wants to get some attention for a sec, go for it,” he said of the matter. “But I fully support Jake — whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. ‘You’re a fake boxer.’ Okay. Let’s box, because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners.”

“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” he continued. “In this fight, everyone’s sayin’ a lot of things, and for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather! So I’ve literally become immune to every — I’ve heard it all.”

(Topic begins at 47:58)

Jake isn’t the only one unsure of his brother’s chances; even Mike Tyson claimed that Floyd would “beat [Logan’s] f***kin’ ass” when it comes time for their match.

While the odds are certainly against Paul, there’s still a chance that he might surprise his critics and go the distance against his formidable opponent.
