Tyler1 said he wants to follow in Pokimane’s footsteps and implement a five-dollar cap donation on his channel, but only because he can’t be bothered acting fake and pretending to be excited whenever someone makes a big donation.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys placed a $5 donation cap on her channel, saying that although she’s grateful for the support, she’s reached a point now where anything more than five dollars is unnecessary. 

It’s become a hot topic among other streamers. Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel acknowledged it was a good thing, but expressed his concern that viewers might criticize other streamers for not doing the same. 

However, that won’t be an issue for Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp. It seems like he’s totally on board with the idea, but for a different and somewhat hilarious reason.

Tyler1 is one of the most popular League of Legends personalities with millions of followers on Twitch.

Tyler1 started sharing his thoughts on the matter after receiving a generous one hundred dollar donation. “Thank you for that hundred dollars,” he said, in a casual tone. It’s clear he was grateful, but he wasn’t willing to get too over-excited.

“Dude, I seen that uh, Poki did the five-dollar bullsh*t,” he said, moments later. “You can only [donate] max five dollars. I need to do that, honestly.” However, his reasoning is different and somewhat typical of his character.

“Because I cannot stand fake reacting,” he added.

“I mean, people send a hundred dollars, and I feel like an asshole if I’m not like, oh my god, whoah, that’s crazy. People are too stupid not to do that.”

Tyler1 might not have intended to call the donator an idiot, but some people believe he certainly implied it.

“Imagine being the dude who dropped $100 in this clip, and immediately being told by the person that you donated to that you’re an idiot,” wrote one user in a Reddit thread.

“A good wake-up call if you ask me,” replied another.

It’s to be expected, though. Tyler1 has never been one to hold his tongue and mince his words. Instead, he tells it like it is, no matter how harsh it seems. 

The reality is, he is also one of the most popular streamers in the world, and this is his way of telling his fans and viewers to chill out on the donations.

Time will tell whether he goes ahead and places a donation cap.

Wendy Williams explains why she “doesn’t feel sorry” for Charli D’Amelio

Popular U.S. TV host Wendy Williams has hit out at TikTok star Charli D’Amelio, after the 16-year-old went on Instagram Live in tears over backlash she had received in her race to 100 million followers.

After an offhand joke about reaching 100 million followers on TikTok, fans deemed Charli “ungrateful” for her success so far and started unfollowing her in droves, losing over 500,000 before her numbers started looking up again and she finally reached the monumental number.

While there was a lot of discussion online about the death threats Charli had received and her treatment by fans and critics alike, the resounding message was that she was being treated unfairly.

Making her opinion on the matter known, however, was American TV host Wendy Williams of The Wendy Williams Show.

Charli has reached 100 million followers on TikTok, but not without some controversy in the run-up to the big moment.

Discussing the hottest topics of the weekend just gone, Wendy was shown several of Charli’s videos, with the situation broken down and explained to her — and she wasn’t impressed.

After finding out what had gone down, and watching the video of a tearful Charli asking for people to stop with the abuse, Wendy made her stance very clear.

“I don’t see any tears,” Williams exclaimed. “Because the drama, these TikTokers, these children these days, they live for the drama.”

The host added she “doesn’t feel sorry” for D’Amelio, especially since she’s probably already gotten the followers back she lost “and then some.”

Topic starts at 25:45.

Wendy did offer a little more advice though when it was suggested that Charli should be a little more grateful.

“No!” she said, before advising Charli to “stay ungrateful and collect those checks!”

So, while Wendy doesn’t seem to be buying the drama, she clearly has some level of respect for Charli’s hustle and ability to “collect those checks” — but suggests the backlash comes hand-in-hand with the success.

The recent controversy surrounding her has clearly hit the younger D’Amelio sister hard, but maybe her being “ungrateful” is, as Williams suggested, just what the internet wanted all along.
