Popular fashion and beauty YouTuber James Charles recently made his first move into the world of Twitch streaming, but immediately ran right into a few problems, notably – Twitch chat. 

James Charles made headlines at the beginning of May thanks to his falling out and subsequent beef with former friend Tati Westbrook. The pair got into a very public spat that saw Charles’ social media accounts hemorrhage subscribers and followers following ‘exposed’ videos from both sides. 

However, after a brief hiatus, the YouTuber returned to uploading content on June 18 – diving back in with ‘Hi Sisters!’ Since then, he has branched out into the world of Twitch streaming but things didn’t go entirely to plan on his first attempt.

The fashion and beauty YouTuber launched his JCharlesBeauty Twitch channel by going live for the first time on June 28. While he may have expected to be inundated with messages from fans, Charles was instead greeted by the wonderful inhabitants of Twitch chat and their ever-inventive chat spams. 

Sadly, Charles didn’t keep his livestream VOD around but interested streamers, like PokeLawls, tuned in at the time to witness the Twitch chat madness as the YouTuber was left baffled by all the messages – especially the phallic-shaped ASCII art messages.

Of course, with this being Twitch, viewers will usually decide to spam emotes too. Hilariously, for PokeLawls, his fellow streamer Mizkif’s fans were dominating Charles’ chat. 

“There’s too many people spamming this. So, we need to block the word ‘eggers’ whatever that means,” stated the YouTuber – sending PokeLawls into a speechless state for a few moments as he saw all the emotes flooding on-screen.

The streamer was left speechless again, moments later, as Charles’ stream went offline following all of the spam. 

Considering he didn’t keep his VOD around and didn’t really understand how to moderate his chat, fans might be waiting a while before the YouTuber returns to livestreaming.

Yet, if he does return, maybe there will be moderators and staff in place to make sure a similar situation doesn’t unfold.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
