In yet another incident of streaming while driving going predictably wrong, an IRL streamer seemed distracted by talking to his viewers in chat rather than paying attention to the road.

Police forces have continually been warning of the dangers of streaming while driving, after the number of in incidents has shot up as streaming in general becomes more popular.

Believed to be driving somewhere in California, a state known for congested traffic in busy areas, the streamer is waiting at a red light as he talks to his chat about general things.

When he thinks the light changes for him to go, he accelerates all while still talking to his chat and glancing down at his camera placed on the passenger seat beside him.

However, as he is distracted he fails to notice that in fact it was not his turn to move at the junction, and coming from where he believed traffic had stopped at a red light, a vehicle blasts its horn before smashing into the side of the streamer’s car.

His camera and mic fortunately remains intact, meaning viewers could continue to hear the exchange as he immediately apologized to the other driver, explaining he believed it was a red light.

Thankfully, it appears from what is visible in the video and the discussion in the background, that no one was seriously injured in the collision.

It is a wake up call for the streamer, and hopefully serves as yet another reminder that streaming while driving is incredibly dangerous, no matter how casual it may seem

A past incident we reported in led to the streamer being hospitalized with serious injuries, after unwittingly driving out in front of a massive rig truck.

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.
