Family’s IRL stream interrupted by shameless thief

During an IRL stream, a family taking a walk around a city in Brazil had their broadcast cut short after a thief shamelessly took advantage of the situation and ruined their get-together.

IRL streams are wildly popular on Twitch due to the unpredictable nature that the real world brings to broadcasts as anything can happen at any given moment.

One family found this out the hard way during their September 12 stream when their lighthearted documentation of their time in the city together was rudely interrupted by an unexpected thief.

When IRL streams go wrong

The family were on a walk together as they explored the city and decided to document the outing by streaming the whole thing, with each of them talking to the camera at various points as they happily enjoyed the moment, before taking a quick pause to pose together.

As they were taking the group shot, out of nowhere a thief on a motorbike snatched the phone from out of one of the family members’ hands, without realizing that the device was still streaming as he took off with the stolen item.

The stream jarringly bounced around as the thief maneuvered the bike’s handlebars while holding the phone, before the video eventually cut short after the device was switched off.

Unfortunately, the thief’s face was never shown as it cut out before he looked at the screen, leaving the family no closer to getting their property back.

Not the first time IRL streams have caught thieves

This isn’t the first time an IRL streamer has been struck by a thief. During a broadcast on June 24, Twitch personality Brien ‘DailyDasher’ Bry was left shocked after somebody attempted to steal his property.

Fortunately for him, the stranger failed at their attempt to steal his phone after two bystanders warned the streamer seconds before by yelling at him, which caused him to turn around.

IRL broadcasts show just how unpredictable life can be, as streamers merge the real world with the digital age, and it can really bring out the worst in human behavior.

If anything can be taken from this, it’s that nobody is safe in the eyes of a thief so vigilance is key – waving your tech items around in public could have dire consequences.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
