Post Malone Tries To Backflip On Twitch After Reaching Charity Goal
Post Malone took his gaming skills to Twitch this week to raise money for various charities, and yesterday he was forced to follow through on a noble fundraising incitement.
After promising his viewers that he would try to do a backflip if his stream brought in $50,000 for United Way, he was put in a tough spot when donations started pouring in. Afraid to rise to the challenge, Post momentarily tried to go back on his promise, but as a man of the people, he ultimately kept his end of the bargain.
“I said I would say I’m going to go for a back somersault,” he said. “This floor is crazy hard here, y’all. … alright Alright.”
Stepping away from his computer, Malone made a hilariously conservative effort to do a backflip while swinging his arms and kicking one of his legs in the air. The backflip attempt felt more like a mixed martial arts kick move than an actual backflip.
However, Post Malone was still enthusiastic about his efforts.
“Did I do it?” he said. “Was it close? Did it look crazy on streaming at least? … Honestly, it was kinda crazy.
Foolishness aside, United Way’s fundraiser yesterday turned out to be as successful as the popular rapper could have hoped, raising $50,684.76, according to the graph on his screen at the end of his stream.
Meanwhile, her feed helped raise awareness with messages in her feed title and a United Way graphic displayed on her show. He also took a few moments here and there to talk to people about United Way and why he helps raise money for the charity.
Throughout its 9.5-hour stream, Malone averaged 37,462 viewers totaling 352,759 hours watched, according to Streams Charts. His stream peaked at 52,871 viewers, and he spent the entire stream in the Apex Legends Category. He played the game with Summit Faide streamer and popular YouTuber Corpse Husband.
