During the April 15 episode of the Joe Rogan podcast, comedian Chris D’Elia hilariously opened up to the UFC commentator about how his body betrayed him and almost ruined his first meeting with rapper Eminem.

We’ve all been there at some point in our lives. That moment when you have something important to do, but then your stomach starts churning so you drop everything to sprint to the nearest toilet.

While visiting the Joe Rogan Podcast, comedian Chris D’Elia explained how this happened to him on his way to meeting Eminem. The entertainer revealed the horrifying details about his body turning on him at the worst time ever.

Chris D’Elia’s story about meeting Eminem

D’Elia hilariously recalled his journey to meeting the rapper, and how things went south quickly. “On my way to meet him. I was like “I think I have to s**t. And then the next thought was ‘I got to sh*t right now.’ It turned into uh oh…” he said, with the UFC commentator’s eyes going wide as his guest explained the tense situation.

The comedian then explained how he told his driver to pull over. “There are two ways he can go. One way he can go, there is only a hospital. The other way is into town. In my head I’m like, “it sucks but we got to go to the hospital. I got to go!”

Unfortunately the driver went into the city, and he could no longer hold it in. “So I say to the guy, ‘Hey man, pull over!’ There was Kleenex there so I grabbed them and ran into someone’s yard. I found trees, thank God. It all came out quick!”

Rogan lost it when D’Elia explained his horrifying story of going to meet Eminem.

Shockingly, he told Rogan that his driver was apparently attempting to film him. “He started filming it. And I’m like “Bro I swear to god if that ends up on Instagram, you’re done. Not only that, you aren’t meeting Eminem!” he said.

The podcast host burst into tears of  laughter, as D’Elia continued to explain the mess he left. “I’m sorry I littered, but I left the Kleenex there.  What else am I gonna do? It was a lot. Somebody’s gonna think there was a f**king bobcat in their yard.”

He wrapped up the incredible story realizing that the iconic rapper would now know about his embarrassing moment. “We then went and met Eminem and he had no idea. Maybe he’ll know now. I’m sure he’s seen this show,” he said, before Rogan exclaimed, “Jesus Christ!”

Chris D’Elia has a history with the famous musician, as he went viral in September 2018 with a video imitating his rapping style. The clip got so big, Eminem himself tweeted about it and jokingly challenged him to a battle.

Despite the mortifying situation, in the end he got to meet the star without him knowing what had happened – until now. If nothing else, this is a lesson that when you have to go, you have to go. Not even a famous musician can stop an upset stomach.


DragonForce’s Herman Li banned from Twitch amid DMCA drama

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
