Partnered Twitch streamer Tanuki, aka ‘crazy_japanese’, has built a great brand on the Amazon streaming platform and often IRL streams from her home in Tokyo, Japan, but a recent live stream went down a scary, terrifying path.
Tanuki visited Shibuya with streamers Hyubsama and Tonchan, going to a bar, during the infamous stream that took an ugly turn when an intoxicated Hyubsama chased and harassed Tanuki on live stream, despite her pleas for him to stop.
Viewers uploaded clips from the now-deleted stream to Livestreamfails and it was also sent to Streamable, which shows just how bad things got. In one instance, Hyubsama chased Tanuki as she ran up the steps, away from the bar, and Hyubsama who shouted “What the f*ck are you doing? Why?”.
“You’re out of control,” she told him, “You are so drunk.” But it did not stop Hyubsama – “Hyub, don’t touch” she pleaded. “Stop. This is going to break (Twitch) TOS”.
Later, in her room, she told her chat that Hyubsama made her feel “unsafe” and “disrespected.”
“I feel so stupid. What am I doing? My content is not about risking my life, my content is about traveling and education. So, let’s focus on that.”
Hyubsama took to his own stream, at first telling a chatter who called him out for his actions, “Don’t bring here drama. What the f*ck did I do?” He then went on a rather crazy rant, where he started laughing and crying at the same time.
“I’m really sorry” he said. “It’s okay, I don’t feel anything about this, honestly. I’m sorry if I did something wrong.” As he began to laugh and cry he apologized for “possibly making her feel uncomfortable.”
The video is available on Dexerto.
Labor Board Says Activision Blizzard Illegally Threatened Staff
The United Sates National Labor Board says that Activision Blizzard, the publisher behind such games as Call of Duty and Overwatch, illegally threatened staff and enforced a social media policy that conflicts with workers’ rights, according to Bloomberg.
This yet another negative mark on the company, and comes following a complaint filed with the NLRB filed against Activision Blizzard that claims employees were being threated for discussing wages and working conditions via the company’s internal Slack channel.
If Activision Blizzard does not settle this issue, the company will receive a formal complaint from the National Labor Relations Board’s regional director in Los Angeles.
