Popular NoPixel GTA V Roleplay streamer uhSnow receives death threats from toxic chat hoppers for roleplaying a cop.
Keeping It Brief
- The popular NoPixel GTA V Roleplay server features multiple public service jobs like police, doctor, EMS, judge, etc.
- However, the majority of popular GTA V RP streamers are involved in criminal activities.
- Chat “hoppers” often harass streamers who roleplay as police.
- uhSnow received death threats from chat hoppers because he roleplays a cop.
The Bigger Detail
One of the reasons why NoPixel is so successful is that dedicated streamers roleplay characters in public service. A fully trained police force, doctors, EMS, and judges elevate the roleplay experience.
Due to the nature of roleplay, viewers get attached to characters and invested in their success. Any adverse action against a character leads to frustration and hate.
In a setup where the cops and criminals clash, roleplay conflict turns into real-life hate.
uhSnow Receives Death Threats For Roleplaying A Cop
uhSnow is a veteran roleplay streamer who plays the character “Jackie Snow.” He is a Trooper for the San Andreas State Police.
In fact, he has received praise from countless streamers for his cop roleplay. However, that doesn’t stop hateful viewers from hopping into his chat and sending death threats because he does his job as a cop.
Maybe he stopped a successful bank heist getaway or put an end to a street race. For roleplaying a cop in GTA V and performing his duties, uhSnow is on the receiving end of a lot of hate.
Chat Hoppers And Toxicity
Viewers who go from one streamer’s chat to another just to spread hate are called chat hoppers. No streamer condones such behavior, but that doesn’t stop viewers from chat hopping.
The GTA V roleplay community can be pretty toxic. Especially towards streamers like uhSnow, who plays the role of a civil servant.
And while uhSnow and others regularly deal with chat hoppers, it can get too much sometimes. Receiving death threats over roleplaying a character is uncalled for.
Hopefully, the viewers who chat hop eventually understand that their actions are harmful. Not only to others but to themselves too. Being obsessed over fictional characters to such an extent is unhealthy.
However, everything is back to normal, and uhSnow took a day off to enjoy his time outside. He’s back as Jackie Snow, ready to keep the streets clean and face more chat hoppers head-on.
