Twitch streamer Dr DisRespect reportedly had to shut down his live stream to duo gunfire directed at his home from a vehicle outside, with a bullet hitting his window.

The popular streamer was playing the new Blackout beta with almost 50,000 concurrent viewers when the incident occurred.

Dr DisRespect says it is the second time in as many days that someone has fired gunshots at his home.

The moment that shots were fired can be heard in the following clip.

Dr DisRespect then returned to his stream to explain what had happened.

“I’ve got to end the broadcast right now, someone shot at our house. Broke the fucking upstairs window. This is the second shot, someone shot yesterday, at our fucking house and someone shot again right now, connected with the house, upstairs.”

Dr DisRespect, real name Guy Beahm, is one of the most popular streamers on the Amazon owned platform, and it appears an individual is targeting him, putting his life and that of his family’s in danger.

It cannot be confirmed if the shooter is deliberately targeting Dr DisRespect, knowing it is his residence, but it seems unlikely that it would be a random attack, two days in a row.

At this time, Dr DisRespect has only said that the window was hit, so it appears that thankfully no one was hurt in the incident.

Beahm lives with his wife and young daughter, affectionately known by his following as ‘baby disrespect’.

Popular streamers have been targeted by stalkers and intrusive fans in the past, but nothing on the level of shots being fired at their home.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
