Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left absolutely speechless while playing Escape from Tarkov with Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar, after the streamer’s disastrous curse with grenades rubbed off on him. 

January 22 was certainly a day of crossovers for some of the top streamers around, as not just these two but the likes of Dr Disrespect, xQc and others to play with each other, although it was a devastating mishap from shroud that stole the limelight.

The former CSGO pro player was running around, trying to track down opponents, and could be seen in the background of summit’s stream on Twitch. Moments later, though, a huge explosion went off and things didn’t look great.

Escape From Tarkov has been one of the most popular games on Twitch over the past few months.

There was a moment of confusion before summit appeared to have grasped what had happened to his teammate, as he’s been in the same position time and time again.

For those who don’t know, he was once eliminated from a CS:GO tournament for burning himself alive with a Molotov Cocktail – later voted as the worst play of the decade.

Although, this time, it was an issue that the Escape from Tarkov development team might want to take a look at, rather than human error, which cost the leader of the 1G squad dearly in the past.

“Ooo! Did you just nade yourself?” summit asked, prompting a quick response from shroud, who said: “I saw it go in.”

Summit1g quickly realized what had happened to his fellow streamer and started to explain. He added: “Oh I saw that glitch the other day. You see [the grenade] physically go in but it doesn’t actually.”

The grenade appeared to enter the room shroud wanted to throw it in, at least on his screen, although it turns out that it just exploded near his location instead – taking him down in the process.

Shroud claimed to have never seen the bug before, but after this, hopefully he doesn’t get himself in a situation to let it happen again in the future. It did give viewers a laugh or two in the process at his expense, though, and he saw the funny side himself too.

Whether or not these two streamers will work together for another Escape from Tarkov stream in the future remains to be seen, but it’s something fans will no doubt be crossing their fingers for.


Nessa Barrett hits back at attacks telling her to kill herself

TikToker Nessa Barrett has, once again, had to hit out against some of the trolls who harass her online, after their bullying took a sinister turn. 

Barrett has had a difficult few days after becoming unwittingly involved in the Jaden Hossler and Mads Lewis ‘diss track’ drama.

After hinting at a collaboration with Hossler on Twitter, she was accused of ‘shading’ his ex girlfriend and former friend, Lewis by hiding a range of Twitter replies referring to her.

However, judging by her recent Tweets, Barrett has enough problems of her own to concern herself with someone else’s drama, as she opened up about some of the intense abuse she had recently received online on Twitter.

Nessa Barrett appeals to fans to leave her alone.

In a series of Tweets, she appealed to trolls to “stop telling [her] to kill [her]self,” explaining that she doesn’t “need to hear it anymore on top of [her] own thoughts [she] battle[s] everyday.”

Giving an insight to the struggles of being in the public eye, Barrett tells fans that they “have no idea how draining it is.”

Fans have rallied around Barrett following her Tweets.

In response to these raw and honest Tweets, fans on Instagram rallied around the TikToker, with one user saying: “Imagine receiving thousands of death treats I could never — all I have to say is she’s so strong.”

Another user said that the fact that she had to tweet this was “so sad,” while a further user said “TikTok is so toxic damn.”

Nessa Barrett’s mental health battle

Nessa Barrett has bravely spoken out about her experiences with mental health several times in the past. In an August interview with Entertainment Tonight, she opened up about being diagnosed with conditions like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

“I’ve been in therapy for anxiety since I was like, six,” she said at the time.

“And then, when I was about 14, I was misdiagnosed with depression. And then, recently, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.”

Being a singer as well as a TikToker, she channelled a lot of her mental heath struggles into songs such as her debut single ‘Pain,’ which she explains was written during a “really vulnerable time” where, among other things, she was once again receiving a lot of hate online.

She also spoke out on Twitter in September about the “serious” and “personal” nature of her mental health issues after she was filmed crying in a restaurant by celebrity paparazzo Kevin Wong.

Hopefully, Barrett’s latest Tweets will be enough of a wake up call for trolls to stop harassing her when she is already feeling vulnerable.
