Whippy, an Australian Twitch streamer known for his GTA RP streams as well as Overwatch, had a bit of a hard time breaking down during a livestream. The streamer said he just didn’t want to stream anymore, saying it was a pain to get up and go online to stream.
The content creator said:
“I just don’t want to broadcast, I’ll be honest. I do not do it. I consider streaming a pain at the moment. I don’t want to wake up and stream.

As for why the Twitch streamer considered his content creation painful and difficult, he said it was mainly because there were constantly negative people towards him on every stream.
“It’s just constantly people, constantly guys talking to me, man. Tired of that. I want you to imagine waking up to do your job and people can’t stop talking about you every day.
Another major focus of his rant was also his numbers. He pointed out that people have stopped watching as often and his subscriber count has also dropped. Although the streamer had an incredibly successful sub-athon last month, the subscribers of this one didn’t last, according to Reddit.
“And all you see is people stop watching, people stop subscribing, you see your career going down the drain! It’s sad !”
The Twitch streamer shouted into his camera as he ran around in GTA RP, talking about people making fun of him and his character in GTA RP. However, his conversation was still supportive throughout the rant as he shouted:
“F**k that person, f**k that character! I don’t care!”
He continued to complain about hating streaming, and despite her conversation showing him support, he said it was viewers like them and pushed his microphone away. The streamer then posted a “Thanks for watching” image, usually shown at the end of streams, but he could still be heard shouting in the background. He would eventually return and stream for several hours, but his feelings were crystal clear.
Social media isn’t supportive of Whippy’s mental breakdown on Twitch
While it seemed like the streamer’s Twitch chat was overwhelmingly supporting the streamer’s frustration, Reddit didn’t quite feel the same way. Some felt there was no way the streamer would leave, given his previous living situation, and others talked about his underathon, when he is still one of the greatest. GTA streamers.
It’s well known that before the streamer’s content really exploded online, he lived in a shack in the backyard of his mother’s house. Another user mentioned that Whippy paid all the dues for his mom’s house, which was respectable.
However, the content creator‘s obsession with his numbers really stuck with a few Redditors. One of them said that Whippy only reached his current level of fame thanks to Sykkuno. The same user mentioned that his subs dwindling weren’t due to him washing up, but just showing support for Sykkuno’s friend. He’s still doing pretty well as a GTA streamer, and another user pointed to the sub-athon which started well, but didn’t retain as many subscribers to his channel.
Moreover, it was the attitude displayed by Whippy that turned off some Redditors. One talked about Whippy saying he wanted to buy a big house with subscribers, although it was originally going to be taken as a joke, with that feeling of entitlement quite frustrating for viewers.
A comment from another Redditor would debunk the previous statement, but agreed that the way he acted in this stream clip was very poor.
Others simply had no sympathy for the streamer, who is doing pretty well by their standards. They had no empathy for the streamer, who complained about the harshness of his life.
Another Redditor suggested that maybe instead of having a meltdown, the Twitch streamer should consider why people aren’t subscribing, instead of complaining about it.
Luckily, at least one answer in the thread was on Whippy’s side. The Redditor said he’s been a subscriber for a while and suggested the streamer just ban rude viewers and get on with his day.
This Twitch streamer is unlikely to quit any time soon, but his stream meltdown has been a long one and has highlighted the issues the streamer has with creating content on Twitch at the moment. The streamer can change things in a number of ways, but it’s up to them to do those things, like change the content or take a break from the NoPixel RP server.
