A Twitch IRL streamer was seen recklessly driving through the streets of a town in Poland while swerving through pedestrians has now been banned.

Travel and Outdoor streamer ‘pajalockk’ has received his second ban for infractions on the road. While the streamer was able to start his Twitch broadcast, it was quickly ended soon after in light of the ban.

Since it’s his second offense of this type, it’ll be up to Twitch to decide if he’ll be getting a 30-day ban or an indefinite ban, as many suspect it will be.

Twitch lets IRL streamers take their broadcasting adventures to wherever they might want to go, but only if they’re abiding by the laws of their land; something pajalockk neglected to do behind the wheel.

Streamers have found numerous ways of safely taking their livestreams on the road, and while it seems like pajalockk had employed some of those strategies, it doesn’t look like he followed through all the way.

In a June 10 broadcast, pajalockk was seen rushing through the streets, narrowly avoiding a collision with pedestrians on two separate occasions within the same 30-second clip.

Taken from a since deleted VOD, the streamer made a left turn where there were two people crossing the street. The tires can be heard faintly screeching as he made his turn, but it looks like the people crossing the street had to rush halfway through to avoid being hit.

While that instance shows more reckless driving than negligence of the road, the very next crosswalk was far more alarming.

Going almost 50 kilometers per hour (about 31 miles per hour) the streamer divides his attention to his phone where he’s seen switching from his Twitch app where you can see his Chat, to his GPS.

Further ahead, a couple can be seen crossing the road from the driver’s left side, but they abruptly stop when they notice the streamer’s car isn’t slowing down.

While the pedestrians stopped before they got into a vulnerable spot, the streamer was late to notice them as he jerked to the right just in case.

Streamers and bad driving, name a better duo

Audiences have been getting accustomed to seeing terrible (and dangerous) driving from streamers.

There’s been many instances of streamers nearly falling asleep behind the wheel or just fumbling through intersections.

While Twitch has a fine line of what is regarded as a break of TOS, close calls like these might signal to streamers to wait until they arrived at their destination before turning on their broadcast.

Jeffree Star has been involved in several controversies throughout the years, but now the internet personality has found himself in hot water after being sued for using Anna Nicole Smith’s name in a lipstick shade.

Jeffree Star is a multi-talented internet personality, but he’s best known for being the founder and owner of Jeffree Star Cosmetics.

His cosmetics company reportedly sells more than 100 million dollars worth of products each year. It started with three lipstick colors and expanded into a whopping collection of many different make-up products.

Jeffree Star Anna Nicole Smith SuedJeffree Star is no stranger to controversy.

However, the company has recently been sued by Anna Nicole Smith’s estate for selling a lipstick named “Anna Nicole” in their Velour Liquid Lipsticks line. The estate inherited all the intellectual property rights associated with her name after she passed away in February 2007.

The estate believes the lipstick was clearly named after Anna Nicole Smith. They also claim it’s a very similar shade to the one she wore herself. What’s more, it seems like Jeffree Star Cosmetics never sought out permission to use her name on their products.

This prompted them to file a lawsuit, claiming Jeffree Star Cosmetics used Anna Nicole Smith’s “name, image, and likeness to advertise for sale and sell its different commercial products.”

The estate also claimed the company is selling a lip liner and eyeliner inspired by Anna Nicole Smith. It also happens to be one of their best-selling products.

If their lawsuit is successful, it’s very likely that they could be entitled to some or all of the profits Jeffree Star Cosmetics has made from selling the Anna Nicole lipstick, as well as the additional lip liner and eyeliner. 

Jeffree Star has not made an official response to the lawsuit yet. However, we will update you as more information arises.
