FaZe Clan’s ‘Agony’ duo Devin and Kieran Agony were reportedly caught up in a home invasion early on April 10, live tweeting the “scariest night of [their] life” to their near-million followers.

The Canadian FaZe Clan brothers were allegedly the target of a home invasion early on Friday morning.

One half of the Call of Duty duo, Devin, sent the first tweet at just after 10pm PT on April 9, stating that his house had been broken into.

“People just broke in our house and tried to break down my bedroom door, then I heard a gunshot,” his tweet read. He was reportedly inside his gaming room, while brother Kieran and their roommate were elsewhere in the house at the time.

“I’m locked in my gaming room and cops are here. Please pray that Kieran is okay. Cops are about to clear the house now,” he continued.

Devin added he was “scared for his brother,” as the two were separated in the house. However, he confirmed his brother’s safety minutes later.

After coming out, Agony reported there was a “shotgun shell on the staircase,” — which he revealed in a follow-up photo — and called the ordeal “the scariest night of my life.”

No one was injured in the home invasion, which Devin said he was thankful for. “Everyone in our home is safe. Will update after we talk to detectives. Thank you, and Thank god no one got hurt,” he tweeted.

The duo have received an outpouring of support on social media after the incident. Fellow members of FaZe Clan, as well as the wider Call of Duty community, commented saying they were also relieved to hear no one was injured.

Agony has since responded to some social media criticism, as followers of the FaZe Clan star enquire as to why he chose to tweet about the incident, rather than seek help.

“To the people calling me out for tweeting, I did not have my phone on me to call the cops. I went on discord to message anyone to call 911,” Agony explained. “I was locked/trapped in my gaming room. Luckily [my] roommate had discord on [their] phone to reply and tell me he’d called 911 and they were on the way”.

The brothers, who live in Ontario, Canada, spoke to local police shortly after the incident. A statement has yet to be released.

Who is Granny? The rising Twitch star who streams as a grandma

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
