A Taiwanese Twitch streamer got called out in a public restaurant for “speaking English,” as another Taiwanese decided to argue and challenge the streamer to a fight “outside.”
Twitch streamer Joey Kaotyk was streaming with a friend while having a meal at a local Taiwanese restaurant. However, when another man heard him speak continuously in English, he ended up getting into an argument with the Twitch streamer.
The Taiwanese man told the Twitch streamer to speak in Chinese if he wishes to speak, and ended up challenging him to a “fight outside.” In response, the streamer expressed his desire to “not fight,” and attempted to defuse the rather sudden situation.

However, as he was conversing with his viewers in English, a Taiwanese man began to argue and shout at the streamer.
“This is a restaurant okay? You are talking too much. I don’t like! This is Taiwan okay? You wanna speak, speak Chinese. Do you understand? Is that crystal clear?”
Needless to say, the Twitch streamer responded (in Mandarin Chinese) and appeared to try and calm the man down. However, the man did not seem ready to listen at all.
“I don’t care! This is a restaurant. You wanna fight, fight with me outside.”
Needless to say, the Twitch streamer had no intentions to fight, and told the man exactly that. Towards the end, he turned to his viewers to talk about how the weird situation played out within seconds in front of them.
While the Twitch streamer dealt with the overall situation quite smartly, viewers could not help but notice how the man was asking the streamer to speak in Taiwanese, in English.Published 20 Dec 2020, 00:25 IST
