Driftor, known for his gaming videos on YouTube, tweeted about a drink that he tried and subsequently disliked, calling it “the worst drink on the planet”. He appeared surprised by the comments he received from commenters, specifically coming from Malaysia; unbeknownst to him, the drink, called Cincau, is culturally significant to the people of Malaysia and often consumed with soy milk. It is especially popular during the Ramadan period, making the drink even more important to some people than just a regular beverage.
Commenters were quick to point these things out, and Driftor often responded.
