A Twitch streamer became distraught after her Minecraft sheep got attacked by an infamously explosive enemy, leaving her in tears.

Minecraft might be known as one of the most popular family-friendly games out there, but the sandbox title can actually be quite brutal, as players will sometimes struggle before they can survive in the world.

One streamer learned this lesson the hard way when her beloved pet sheep that she was taking care of were suddenly attacked, and the intense experience caused her to break down crying.

Mojang / MicrosoftThe popular sandbox title first released in 2009, but has seen a resurgence this year.

An explosive enemy

Twitch streamer ‘lisabby’ was having a laid-back session in the sandbox game as she joyfully took care of her pets, when a Creeper dropped down in the background and began to move slowly towards her as she was unaware of her surroundings.

She then looked up and saw the enemy flashing red to her left. “Ooh!” she yelled, while swinging her weapon at the foe. But it was too late, as the Creeper exploded on the streamer and her pet animals.

“No, no, no! What the f*ck!?” she screamed, shocked by the moment before breaking down in tears after she had time to take in what had just happened to her.

Holding her hands to her mouth, lisabby turned to her audience and shouted “Oh my God, my sheep!” before she surveyed the damage done to her pets living area which had caused a crater in the ground.

“Come back in!” she told her pets, which were struggling to get out of the hole, before some of them climbed up to the higher ground. “Okay, I need fence. Where’s the fence? Oh my God…” she exclaimed.

According to her ‘About’ page on Twitch, lisabby is from the Netherlands and only started streaming in June. Despite this, she already has hundreds of followers – no small feat for someone who’s just started out on the platform.

The variety streamer’s schedule is currently “irregular” as she puts it, because she’s still attending college, and is balancing between her education and streaming.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
