During a recent stream Overwatch streamer Jeff ‘emongg’ Anderson was talking about his 13-year-old dog, but Twitch chat was convinced he said something much different.
Emongg’s love for his pugs is evident on his Twitch channel, where his icon is a cartoon pug, and he talks about the dogs often on stream.
Recently, he was part of the Overwatch streamer program, where he streamed live from Blizzard HQ with several of the Overwatch developers.
During the stream on November 26, emongg was telling viewers about his dogs, when he made the mistake of mentioning his ex-girlfriend in one of the stories.
“I have another pug with my ex girlfriend who, she’s like 13 now,” the streamer casually told chat.
Obviously, emongg was talking about his 13-year-old pug, not a 13-year-old girlfriend, but the damage had already been done.
“No, not my girlfriend, my pug, my pug! No!” the streamer tries to convince chat. “My pug was 13, or is 13.”
Emongg can try all he likes but as we’ve seen, once Twitch chat latches on to an idea, there’s almost nothing that can be done to convince it otherwise.
