Lirik and Forsen are two of the oldest streamers still active on Twitch. They have been streaming on the platform ever since its inception in 2011. Naturally, most of the streamers who have started streaming in the past couple of years had started watching streams from this duo itself. Valkyrae, too, is one of those people who probably drew inspiration from these streamers to start streaming on Twitch.

Although Rae has moved over to YouTube to stream full-time and create content, she still has a soft corner for Twitch. Naturally, in a moment of nostalgia, she shared how Lirik and Forsen were two of the first streamers she ever watched and still remain her go-to streamers to watch on the platform.

Valkyrae’s choice doesn’t seem to please a lot of her fans due to the controversies that surround her idols. Forsen and Lirik might not be the most toxic streamers on the platform. However, they do have a fair share of controversies surrounding them.

Forsen has a pretty rowdy fanbase who call themselves the ‘Forsenboys’. However, owing to the streamer’s Swedish background, people also refer to his fans as ‘Forsen Bajs’. Naturally, Reddit and Twitter users couldn’t hold themselves back from making fun of Valkyrae once she came out as a ‘Bajs’ too.

However, many people also took the tweet positively and vowed to check out the duo’s channels. The streamers cater to a niche crowd, and most of Valkyrae’s fans don’t come inside that bracket. Therefore, a shoutout from her is definitely going to diversify Lirik and Forsen’s fanbase.
