As two of the most popular live streamers, Tyler1 and ICE_POSEIDON are both known for being somewhat controversial, and some may expect the pair to be perfect partners for a duo stream.

Both Tyler1 and ICE_POSEIDON have served bans from Amazon owned platform Twitch for previous transgressions, with the latter now permanently streaming on YouTube after Twitch banned him indefinitely.

Tyler1 recently returned to Twitch following his lengthy ban, and has become noticeably more calm compared to his previous pre-ban self.

ICE_POSEIDON has even recently been told his voice is not permitted to be heard on any Twitch channel, after he attempted to compete in KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament, and his teammate (who was streaming on Twitch) was instructed to mute ICE’s voice.

Some have labelled Tyler1 and ICE_POSEIDON the ‘provocateurs’ of Twitch and YouTube, calling them “notoriously toxic”.

When asked if he would join ICE_POSEIDON during one of his infamous ‘IRL’ (In Real Life) streams, Tyler1 explained in no uncertain terms why that is very unlikely.

“ICE said he want to hang out? Yeah… – ICE is fine.

But, the other autistic people – and I’m all for being completely fucking autistic – but being absolutely barbarian autistic, with eight other people – ahh, I don’t know about that.”

It sounds like the duo fans have been waiting for is not on the cards then, at least not for an officially arranged occasion.

The pair have previously appeared on stream together as both were present at TwitchCon in 2017, although this was merely a chance meeting.

Doja Cat is leaving TikTok: “I’m not comfortable”

Popular music artist Doja Cat has announced that she is officially leaving TikTok, claiming that she is no longer “comfortable” with being harassed on the viral video application — and she’s not the first celebrity do so.

Doja Cat has become one of the world’s most popular rappers in the last few years. Best known for such hits as ‘Juicy’ and ‘Like That,’ Doja humorously found herself in the spotlight thanks to her viral ‘Moo’ video in 2018, and has been steadily climbing the stairway to fame ever since.

However, it seems that Doja is taking a major step back from one of the net’s biggest social media platforms, as revealed in a series of soul-baring Tweets published on January 19.

In her tweets, Doja claimed that she no longer wants to post on TikTok, appearing to claim that she’s tired of being harassed and bullied by critics.

“I’m not comfortable making TikToks anymore,” she wrote. “I feel like something is wrong with me. Y’all got me.”

Doja continued by claiming that commenters were “unintentionally gaslighting her,” revealing that she has “struggled” with similar issues before.

“I have a lot of fear in me, so it just adds up in the end when I read that kind of shit,” she explained.

“It’s really my dumbass fault, cuz I put myself out there to be made fun of anyway, but it’s just reached a point for me, personally,” the rapper added. “So I’m done with the funny shit. Y’all can make fun of my music and my performances, cuz those not meant to be a joke and I’ll feel better about that.”

Doja is far from the first celebrity to leave TikTok over similar issues; in September 2020, rapper Taio Cruz also quit the platform, claiming that he’d been bullied to the point of having harmful thoughts, which were brought on by mean commenters.

Studies claim that cyberbullying has drastically risen since the onset of the global health crisis — and while Doja has been met with ample support from her fans, we can all do our part to make the internet a nicer place.
