Twitch streamer left bleeding after stranger punched him in Tokyo



Western streamers and Japan have been a problematic combination, with many using platforms like Twitch to disrupt the daily lives of Japanese people and Japanese forums are full of protests, but this time the case seems to have a different reason.

Of course, everything was recorded on video as you can see above.

The IRL streams of Twitch can provide some of the best experiences on the platform. Showcasing one’s adventures around the world has become an incredibly popular form of content as travel streamers broadcast their experiences for the world to see, and although LoncheDeHuevito wasn’t bothering anyone and ended up being attacked in Tokyo.

The streamer used a translator on his phone to ask someone on the street for directions to the police. But, according LoncheDeHuevitothe police didn’t do much to help him.
