From YouTube to Twitch streaming to esports, Zoie Burgher is a controversial figure in the online world who has made significant career changes in the past – but what is she up to now?

Zoie Burgher first started her career with provocative Twitch streams, in which she would wear revealing clothing while playing competitive games and twerk after every successful match, earning her a unique reputation across the gaming space.

However, her antics soon saw her banned from the platform – multiple times, in fact, leading her to start a YouTube channel that became massively successful almost overnight.

Zoie’s YouTube career stirs up controversy

Although Zoie skyrocketed to over 1 million subscribers in a fairly short time, other major YouTubers weren’t pleased with her success, including social media star Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le.

Le even created a diss track targeted at Burgher in 2017, which boasts over 6 million views as of April 26, 2019.

Le wasn’t the only commentator to speak out against Burgher’s risky content, either – a slew of “rant” videos were created about Burgher, further propelling her to success despite their attempt to make YouTube aware of her practices.

Zoie’s all-female esports organization

Burgher didn’t limit herself to streaming on Twitch and YouTube, though; she even went on to create her own competitive gaming organization for girls, which went by the name ‘Luxe.’

While Burgher’s unique blend of an esports team, talent agency, and media brand even got a TV show, the org eventually fizzled out, with Burgher announcing it’s disbanding in April 2018.

However, Luxe made a brief return shortly thereafter, although no updates have yet been revealed as to its current operations.

From esports to Snapchat

Burgher is now on Snapchat, selling access to her premium accounts, adult photos, and tailored videos to those willing to pay out for her services.

Burgher has no qualms about advertising herself, either; in fact, her Twitter and Instagram are filled with content as proof of her wares, something that Burgher started early on during her ascent to 1 million YouTube subscribers.

Burgher was most recently in the news for “exposing” CoD pro FaZe Pamaj for having a intercourse with a married woman – an accusation that the gamer appeared to admit in a hilarious Twitter response.

Zoie has since dubbed herself the “mother of egirls” and continues to upload YouTube content on a semi-regular basis.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
