100 Thieves co-owner Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter hasn’t streamed on Twitch since she signed a contract with YouTube. How Twitch is handling her account over a year later has left her speechless.
Since signing an exclusive contract with YouTube over a year ago, Valkyrae has definitely stayed too busy to think about Twitch and her 1.1 million follower account.
The creator has starred in a music video with Machine Gun Kelly, in which she plays the faceless YouTuber and musician Corpse Husband, as well as becoming an official co-owner of 100 Thieves alongside CourageJD, Drake, Nadeshot and a few other investors.
During an August 16 stream on YouTube, Valkyrae received a comment in chat: “Did you know if you search your name on Twitch, it shows Sykkuno?”

After reading the chat message out loud, the streamer responded, “Hold… hold up. HOLD UP!” before opening the Twitch homepage and typing her name into the search bar.
After a couple of seconds staring at the screen, she yelled: “Whta? HUH?!” before scrolling halfway down the result page and yelling out “Valkyree?! One?!” — the name of a Hungarian World of Warcraft streamer.

Valkyrae explains how Pokimane solved confusion with restaurant during big IRL stream
Streaming star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter cleared up an unusual situation where she and her pals were told to shut down their stream despite claiming they had permission to film.
For most streamers, sitting down at their desk and showing off their gaming skills is about as far as they’ll go. Though, there are plenty of others that branch out and stream their daily lives while on the go.
Given there are so many strangers and passers-by, IRL streams can be full of pitfalls, but plenty of big streamers will attempt to get permission beforehand to avoid any backlash.
100 Thieves’ Valkyrae attempted to do just that when she and a few friends sat down to eat at a restaurant, but their stream almost got shut down after a dispute with a manager.
During the stream, Hofstetter noted that her assistant had called ahead of time to get permission for them to stream their meal. Though, when they got there, they were confronted by staff who told them they could only take pictures.
In the aftermath, the 100 Thieves co-owner said that would never be the case. “I said that’s impossible, there’s no way my assistant would call in and ask for permission for photos, that’s absolutely impossible. We wouldn’t have agreed or made reservations here if that was the case,” she added.
Ultimately, it was Pokimane who got things straightened out by asking to speak to a different member of staff who could help them. That person then gave them permission to stream.
