Audiences were shocked to see YouTube broadcaster Ebenezer ‘EBZ’ Lembe driving impaired while on the busy streets of Los Angeles in a late April 23 stream.

EBZ is known for his IRL streams that occasionally features appearances from ICE_Posiedon or other members for the rest of the Cx crew.

A new video shows EBZ on the road while his stream is on, though throughout the video it’s clear that he’s having difficulty keeping his attention steadily on the road.

EBZ YouTubeEBZ routinely streams from his car while talking to his stream, but normally in safer conditions.

Driving under the influence

The situation was evident to his audience that something wasn’t completely right with the streamer with many of his viewers saying EBZ was “drunk af” or that “he’s high not drunk.”

It’s unclear if the streamer was drunk or high, as his stream’s viewers were going back and forth between the possibility of the the two. Regardless, EBZ can be seen fumbling trying to stay awake, saying: “Tired, sleepy. I could use laying in my bed right now.”

There were multiple scenarios where the streamer had to stave off his eyes from shutting at 3:30 in the morning, sometimes having to jolt himself back up.

Desperate calls to stop the drive

Even though his stream was filled with viewers enjoying the late night outing, there was tons of people calling for EBZ to pull over and check into a hotel.

His stream’s chat were filled with messages akin to “Real talk, pull over” and “he’s going to crash man, this isn’t funny anymore.”

The streamer pressed on. At one point he can be seen driving over a small bump while he was yawning. Although that didn’t faze him, it was soon followed by a much bigger thud that shook him awake.

“Ahhh, okay,” EBZ said. “I’m up. I’m up. I’m up. I’m up.”

Moments later his head heavily dropped, forcing him to recollect himself but this time he wasn’t too confident, saying: “Wake up. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. That means wake up.”

The scenes from his broadcast were unnerving for his stream, but EBZ did manage to get to his destination and has since continued with his stream.

The brutally difficult world of Rust is filled with all kinds of perils, but popular Twitch streamer xQc quickly learned this the hard way when he encountered one of the game’s ferocious bears.  

Rust is the latest game to gain huge popularity over on Twitch and YouTube, with popular streamers like Pokimane, Myth, shroud, and more getting involved in the survival action. However, one streamer continues to make headlines for his hilarious antics and never-ending Offline TV Rust server drama. This streamer being none other than French Canadian Twitch streamer, xQc. 

When he’s not busy getting involved in the latest server raids, the popular content creator is invariably getting himself into mischief. This time xQc bit off more than he could chew when he came face to face with one of Rust’s more fearsome fauna. 

An unbearable problem

Rust’s bears are notoriously difficult to take down.

Rust servers are not only filled with hostile players, they are also home to some pretty dangerous wildlife. Everything from wild boar, chickens, deers, horses, and wolves can be found on each map. 

Of course, most of these animals can be used in the gathering and crafting of materials. In fact, you’ll invariably need to hunt them in order to survive. However, one of the game’s tougher creatures is the deadly bear. 

Bears are often found in wooded areas of the game’s biomes and are incredibly hostile towards nearby players. Their huge amounts of health, high mobility, and lethal bites can make short work of even the most skilled Rust players. 

Unfortunately, xQc found this out the hard way when he took a helicopter flight over a wooded area with fellow Twitch streamer dafran. Despite somehow missing the first few trees, xQc botched the landing as the helicopter propellers smashed into the wood. 

While xQc managed to jump out of the cockpit just before the helicopter exploded, dafran wasn’t so lucky. However, the action wasn’t over just yet as a bear came tearing its way through the woods, chasing an injured xQc up the mountain. 

The Twitch streamer desperately tried to make some distance between himself and the bear, but he only managed to fire off a few rifle rounds before being mauled to death. There’s certainly no questioning how lethal Rust’s local wildlife can be.
