Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has one of the most recognizable voices on Twitch, making him a ripe target for impersonations among the community.

While many attempt to imitate the streamer, who is best known for his League of Legends broadcasts, it seems none of them are very good – at least, that’s what Tyler1 thinks.

On Monday, January 14, fellow streamer Mizkif shaved his eyebrows and hair off after huge donations in his chat demanded he do it.

With his hair gone, many of his viewers felt that Mizkif looked a lot like Steinkamp, and asked him to pretend to be the streamer, with Mizkif breaking out a pretty good impression of Tyler1 which his chat enjoyed immensely.

With many agreeing that Mizkif’s imitation was almost perfect, the Steinkamp decided to watch the video with his chat, and was less than happy with what he heard.

“I don’t sound like that. I do not sound, act or look like that. This impersonation is not even fucking close. Maybe fucking next time dude,” Tyler1 told his chat, before purposefully speaking in a lower register to change the sound of his voice.  “I don’t sound like that.”

Steinkamp and former Overwatch pro Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel also got into a war of words this week, with xQc taking offense to Tyler1 referring to him as a “normie.”

Lengyel couldn’t believe what the streamer had said, responding by telling his own stream: “Motherfucker drinks water out of his little sippy cup and his booster seat. Shit is unbelievable.”

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
