An IRL Twitch streamer’s drive through LA’s Koreatown turned violent after a brutal street fight randomly broke out.

Twitch star JakeNBake was driving around the city in search of some Boba also known as Bubble Tea, when fisticuffs started flying between two men in the middle of the road.


The streamer, who is home in America after spending many years in Japan, was shocked to see two men engage in combat.

“Are they fighting? Holy sh*t,” he swore as he drove closer. “Oh, sh*t! Those guys are fighting.”


Right as Jake pulled in on the exchange, a man in black shorts appeared to land a nasty right hook to his hoodie-wearing adversary.

All while this was going on, people on a restaurant patio to the right watched as the two continued their fight, not wanting to interfere.

Eventually, the man in the hoodie got right into the other individual’s face and was met with another big right hand, leaving Jake to wonder how he should proceed.

JakeNBake drove away in case things got crazier.

“What should I do?” he asked out loud. “What the f**k? Uh, that guy’s shirt’s all ripped. What happened?”

From there, the man in the hoodie seemed to get back into his car, leading some in chat to suspect that this could have been a vehicle or road rage-related incident.

“I kinda wanna get out of here. I don’t know what those guys are going to do,” Jake decided. “I don’t want them to pull out some crazy sh*t.”


Jake was able to successfully leave the area, but addressed his chat while in the parking lot nearby. “That guy got clocked twice,” he said, suggesting it was very one-sided.

You never really know what you’re going to get during an IRL stream, but at least the streamer managed to stay safe during a really nasty turn of events.

Popular stand-up comedian Joe Rogan has finally revealed changes to the lighting of his new podcast studio after fans decided they hated it, following his move to Texas.

After moving his entire podcast studio near his new Texas home in early September, Joe Rogan’s followers were quick to criticize him over the “tacky” updates made to the background of his setup.


While most of his fans are used to seeing him in front of the classic red-brick wall with an American flag during his long-form conversations, his latest move saw the addition of some bizarre red lighting patterns instead.

JRE fans criticized Rogan’s studio for its “tacky” red lights in previous episodes.

The UFC commentator’s first few episodes in the new studio were subject to a lot of criticism and many fans immediately called for adjustments to be made to the new camera angles and lighting that were being used.


However, after initially addressing the hate and revealing that they had put the room together on short notice, it seems as if he has taken the feedback on board in his recent episodes, toning down the harsh red lighting that was present in the background of the show. The podcast host has now replaced the bright red light with a blue hue instead.

Since the release of his podcast with fellow comedian Colin Quinn on October 8, fans have noticed a massive improvement in the lighting and have been quite positive about the production changes that Rogan and JRE producer Jamie Vernon have made.

“Lighting is so much better, doesn’t look like you’re in front of a KFC sign” one viewer commented, while other JRE fans echoed similar compliments after the latest changes.


The majority of his viewers claimed that the quality of the episode was “significantly better” but that it could still do with some minor adjustments to bring it up to the usual standard of the popular podcast.

As Rogan has previously explained that his current studio was put together on short notice, it is quite possible that he has even more changes in store over the next few months but we’ll just have to wait and see if any further adjustments are made.
