Popular streamers and food truck runners “GrubTruckers” were interrupted during their shift by a drunken customer who got a bit physical after being denied a free ride home.

The GrubTruckers, known for their gourmet Mac n’ Cheese, were in the middle of a shift during a December 18 live-stream when a drunken stranger walked up to their food truck asking for a ride home.

Unfortunately for him, the staff on duty clarified that they couldn’t give him a lift, as they had yet to close up shop — an answer that the customer didn’t seem to take very well.

GrubTruckers, TwitterThe GrubTruckers are more than foodies – they also live stream during their shifts, capturing some unique moments in the process.

“We’re not allowed to close for another hour,” one staff member said.

After a short conversation regarding the frat he was in, the customer left to loiter by a storefront, after which he threw his phone down on the concrete with a guttural, “God damn it!”

Angered by the fact that staff couldn’t offer him a ride, the man sauntered up to the truck’s window to give them a piece of his mind.

“You know what? Me and him asked you for help,” he slurred. “We both asked you for help.”

“You did,” a staff member replied. “You asked for a ride. But we can’t leave.”

The customer angrily tipped a container of forks into the truck window at this, flinging in a few other objects that appeared to shatter inside the vehicle.

Despite the danger of the situation, the window runner kept his cool. “I’m gonna ask you to leave politely one last time,” he said to the customer, who was promptly shoved aside by his friend as the situation escalated.

This didn’t stop his outrage, though, and he threw another object toward the side of the truck, shouting, “Have fun working at the Grub Truck, you f***ing loser!”

The man was later escorted off the premises by his friend, leaving behind a shot glass that he’d lobbed inside the window — a hilarious turn of events that gave staff a good laugh.

This isn’t the first time the GrubTruck has experienced such drama, by far. In fact, a fight broke out in front of their business just a month prior, when a bystander sucker-punched another stranger after what appeared to be a heated argument.

Thanks to the many cameras on their vehicle, the GrubTruck will always have damning footage as proof, should another drunken patron decide to get physical during one of their late-night runs.

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.
