Twitch has added a new Social Eating directory to its website. It hasn’t taken off as a completely popular thing yet, but there are a bunch of streamers embracing the opportunity to eat food with their fans and friends, all with a camera in their face.
The idea for this streaming content is derived from Muk-bang, which is a popular form of entertainment in Korea. Essentially, it’s an online broadcast where a host interacts with viewers while eating an abundance of food.
Of course, there always has to be someone that ruins the fun for everyone else. Twitch streamer, bigwoodysauce, apparently ate so much food that it caused him to vomit. What’s even worse is that he decided to keep his stream on during the vomit session, allowing all of his viewers to watch it live.
This incident has been brought up on Reddit, and most people are completely grossed out by it (as am I).
