Twitch sensation Amouranth got the weirdest request from fellow streamer 'erobb221'.
Twitch star Kaitlyn "Amouranth" Siragusa is no stranger to the dark side of Twitch. The popular streamer is often known for pushing the boundaries of the Twitch legislation which has led to her having to have banned a large portion of viewers from commenting in chat.
One of those is Eric "erobb221" Lamont, brother of former League of Legends professional and current Team Liquid streamer Tyler "Tyler1" Steinkamp.
In a live stream on January 19, Amouranth was filtering through a slog of unban requests, reviewing the messages which resulted in her viewers being purged from chat. The list appeared to be endless, showcasing that her mods must be the busiest people on the internet, and she soon stumbled across erobb's attempt to have his permissions reinstated.
After being convinced by the chat to peek through the interaction rundown, Amouranth opted to give the fans what they sought, and there was a mixed bag of shocked and amused reactions.
After previous attempts to speak to her in chat and in real life, erobb seemed to have a fixation with the streamers' socks, messaging "you got any socks? around?", and another stating "I like your socks so much they look so good".
Bemused, Amouranth could hardly finish scrolling to the final message of "Hey I'm moving to Texas soon we should hangout", instead joking to her fans that "Damn, that sounds like someone I want to hang out with, chat. A sock connoisseur such as himself. Such a high calibre, top-tier”.
It is unclear as to why erobb fixated on her socks, maybe he noticed it was a cold day, and they would offer some warmth. However, it's unlikely that we'll ever found out with him remaining banned in her chat.
The bizarre interaction is definitely not one of the most outrageous messages she has ever received, although it must be one of the most bizarre.
