A Polish Minecraft streamer’s broadcast was interrupted abruptly when a group of masked men broke into his house and attacked him during his stream, leaving fans confused and concerned for his safety – but it was all a prank.

Streaming is unpredictable  as it’s as live as it gets, which means some broadcasts can pick up the unthinkable. From a streamer being car-jacked, to many getting swatted, we’ve unfortunately seen it all.

However a Polish Minecraft player’s November 16 broadcast alarmed many on social media sites like Reddit, when a handful of men wearing masks barged their way into his room, and attack the streamer before carrying him off.

Fans were left wondering about the safety of the online personality, while some even speculated that the whole thing could be a hoax straight off the bat – which it was.

Streamer trolls viewers with break-in hoax

YouTuber ‘Bagietka Michael‘ was streaming Minecraft on the video-hosting platform when thirty minutes into the broadcast, he looked up to a loud noise to the right of the screen. A man was then seen to emerge from behind him, who then pushed the streamer into another man to the right.

Screams and other inaudible noises were soon heard as the streamer was thrown onto the bed, where one of the men hit him before a struggle ensued between the online personality and his assailant. The group of four men were all wearing masks of sorts that obscured their faces.

As the attack went on, the Minecraft streamer was then dragged off the bed by his leg, where he hit the floor before the group of men each grabbed a part of his body, and lifted and carried him out of the room against his will.

The streamer could be heard crying out in pain as they hit him, and continued to take him out of the room. A couple of the attackers doubled back once the streamer and the other men had left the shot, and appeared to search for something.

One of them then looked into the camera, perhaps unaware that it was being streamed live online to a plethora of concerned viewers who were concerned for the streamer’s safety.

It was a prank

The clip first began to blow up when it showed up on Reddit’s LiveStreamFail subreddit. While some were concerned for the streamer, others cast their doubts about the incident, predicting that the whole thing was “staged” and a hoax.

Bagietka Michael later returned to his YouTube broadcast to confirm that the whole thing was a joke, much to the relief of fans who were worried about the streamer’s wellbeing.

Former NBA player Nate Robinson has found himself at the receiving end of an unfortunate meme on Twitter following his humiliating defeat by Jake Paul in a boxing match on 28 November.

To the shock of many onlookers during the highly-anticipated fight – which was on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition fight – Paul was able to KO Robinson after just two rounds in a brief but devastating defeat for the basketball player.

Although Robinson initially started the fight strong and energetic, it didn’t take long for Paul to overpower him. He downed Robinson within the first round before sensationally knocking him out with a powerful punch during Round 2.

As Robinson was floored by Paul’s killer punch, the internet reacted by creating the #NateRobinsonChallenge, which involves people taking pictures of themselves pretending to be knocked out.

The savage trend has spread to both Instagram and Twitter, so Robinson might want to stay away from the internet for a while…

Even Fox Sports couldn’t resist getting in on the latest internet craze, as they joked that NFL player Cam Newton was getting in on the challenge as he was warming up lying face down on the field.

Alongside this challenge, the internet also responded to Robinson’s knockout by immediately making him into a meme, taking inspiration from the likes of The Lion King, Minecraft, and Among Us.

Here’s a selection of some of the best memes so far:

 

Meanwhile, in an interview following the fight, Jake Paul revealed that after a short break from the ring, he has ambitions to take on some of the biggest fighters in the world.

“There’s a long list of opponents that I want,” Paul said. “Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

Paul also claimed that he wanted to fight his own brother, Logan Paul, and Austin McBroom, the latter of whom he has recently been going back and forth in an online feud with.
