Er, how mad? Well, he actually storms off a livestream...
19 June, 2019 by Fonticha Tran
The Stranger Things star, Finn Wolfhard, was just innocently guest-starring on his older brother’s, Nick Wolfhard, Twitch livestream, when all of a sudden, an obsessive fan from the chat - with crazy hacking skills - finds out Finn's address (i.e. where he was streaming live from), and proceeds to send him a delivery.
Oof. And Finn was definitely not happy.
Not only that, but the whole scenario was all caught on stream...
Let’s rewind: Everything started out normally. It was just an average stream where Finn, Nick and a friend, Quincy Fox, were doing a fun cooking livestream on Nick's Twitch Channel. The aim? To cook up some handmade burgers.
Innocent enough, right?
Here and there, jokes were thrown around and all in all, the boys' humour kept the stream entertaining for fans to watch. Even their mother had a little onscreen time when she came over to help the boys out.
But everything goes downhill from here.
Because not long after the Wolfhard brothers had finished eating their cooked burgers, a male's voice is heard offscreen. The dialogue is shown below:
Male: "Is there a Finn here? There's a gift from 'Patricia'? It's for Finn."
Finn: "Wait, what?"
Male: "Lady said it was for Finn. A surprise gift for the Live?"
Viewers could then clearly see the two Wolfhard's shocked expressions and Finn getting a tad annoyed before he stalks off-screen to meet the unsuspecting delivery man.
"It's a bomb!" Quincy jokingly shouts.
In the background, viewers could hear the delivery man asking whether Finn was the guy from Stranger Things and when Finn said yes, the delivery man then proceeded to ask if Finn lived there.
Uh... privacy, Mister Delivery Dude?
But Finn is heard coolly replying, "No, I have friends who lives here." He then confirms that he was just visiting.
And the delivery? Turns out it was a cake that was delivered through Foodora (a food delivery service) and the cake was bought from 'True Confections' (a dessert shop).
Well, at least it appeared to be wrapped up and unopened.
Nick, on the other hand, decided it must've been from someone who was watching the livestream, to which Finn irritably retorted: “Yes, someone obviously found our f**king address”.
However, when Nick began to thank the stream for the cake, Finn sharply says from off screen: “Do not thank them!”
Makes sense, though. I mean, someone did just find out where his entire family lived. This could very well be a dangerous situation if the wrong type of fan found out this information. After all, back in 2012, an extreme fan broke in Miley Cyrus' home, armed with scissors. When he was arrested, he stated that he just wanted to see the star.
...So what was he doing with a pair of scissors?!
In all seriousness though, Miley was just three years older than Finn at the time.
Well, that happened. And so, Finn understandably refused to eat the cake and firmly suggested to his brother to end the stream. Although they were supposed to make some Rice Crispies, Finn decided to skip out.
"I’m probably just going to go chill over there. It’s kind of f**cked up."
Afterwards, Quincy who was munching on the cake, summed up the entire scenario to the livestream viewers.
"The gesture itself, very thoughtful, but we don’t wanna be taking cake from a random person. [...] it’s just an invasion of privacy. [...] we’re doing this stream already as like, a nice thing to do for you guys. We could have simply made food and not got dressed up and stuff."
From the corner of the kitchen, Nick then adds:
"[...] getting sent food to your house from someone you don’t really know and the fact you know our address is kinda creepy. [...] If we don’t know you, don't send food to our address. Thanks."
They then mutually decided to cut the stream short.
So, how did the chat react?
im crying so much right now he needs to be protected at all costs and so does his family that's so disrespectful
I'm sorry but this is just so disrespectful, I could never be that type of psycho fan. even if I knew their address I wouldn't have sent food because that's just invasion of privacy.
I’m shook and scared at the same time.
Overall, it could've just been a harmless fan who might have just wanted to treat the boys to a dessert after their handmade burgers.
...But when should the line be drawn, especially regarding privacy? Do you think fans should avoid sending things to their favourite celebrities, especially if they don't publicise their address?
Or maybe you're like, chill. It's just a kind gesture.
That being said, we're siding with Finn on this. If you're new to doxxing, read up on the dangers of doxxing. It's not funny and in the past, it led to actual deaths.
But onto brighter news. Netflix's Stranger Things season 3 will be airing on July 4 and IT Chapter Two will be in theaters on September 6.
