After hosting a convention for European fans in Amsterdam, Twitch officials brought TwitchCon 2022 to San Diego to welcome all the American streamers for a meet and greet with their fans.

One of the most popular Minecraft creator ‘Dream‘ along with his SMP cast also joined the event after Dream had unveiled his face to the internet, breaking his viewership record. While it was considered that the event will be a huge success, it actually turned out to be the opposite as fans were unhappy due to the poor management by the hosts.

Hours after that, a small-time Twitch streamer ‘Adriana Chechik’ reportedly broke her back while jumping into a foam pit. The video surfaced on social media where she could be seen, unable to get up after jumping from an elevated platform. She later took to Twitter to inform-

"Well, I broke my back in two places and am getting surgery to put a meter rod in for support today. Send your support. When it rains it pours and I am definitely feeling the rain right now."

It was explained by a user that Adriana had apparently landed on a hard surface which led her to suffer a serious injury on her back, which clearly indicates poor management by the Twitch officials present at the San Diego event.

Fans are quite enraged with the facilities arranged at the San Diego Twitch Convention 2022. Many of them have demanded a boycott, bringing out previous instances such as the gambling drama, content creators revenue split and the recent foam pit accident might have added fuel to the fire.
