100 Thieves and ‘The Mob’ member Erind ‘Froste’ Puka didn’t expect to wake up to some K-Pop fans trying to get him banned from social media over something he said about popular Korean music group ‘BTS’ — but that’s exactly what happened the morning of September 21.

K-Pop fans are known for being very supportive of their favorite bands, with the BTS “Army” being one of the most enthusiastic fanbases on the internet.

Known for posting fancams of their favorite artists under Twitter threads asking for users to stream their music, it comes as little surprise that some stans are very passionate about their hobby — so much so, that they will defend their favorite bands to the ends of the earth.

Froste, a noted streamer and member of both The Mob and 100 Thieves, poked fun at uber-popular K-Pop group BTS in a Twitter response. “JungleC**k and Jimmy just called me (we’re close like that) and they said they hate all you stans,” he tweeted.

What seemed like a playful jab to his own followers was something that fans of the band didn’t take lightly. “They don’t call us army for nothing, we’ll all pull up on that mf,” one supporter replied.

Even getting the topic “Froste report” to trend across Twitter, some BTS fans attempted to remove his account from the social media platform — but that’s far from the end of this tale.

Froste even appeared to confirm that someone had attempted to hack into his account, seeming to hint that it may have been a member of the “Army” who was responsible for doing so.

That’s not all; some angry stans even emailed one of Froste’s sponsors, G FUEL, asking that he be removed from partnering with the company for “enabling racism and xenophobia on his big platform,” as well as “ridiculing the fandom and creating racially charged tweets that mocked and whitewashed the names of the [BTS] band members.”

It appears as though this has failed to deter Froste, though – as he still continued to make fun of what is one of the biggest fanbases on the entire internet, drawing in a ton of backlash as a result.

A Pokemon GO player’s livestream was interrupted when a mugger robbed them in front of viewers. The Trainer’s phone and car were stolen during the broadcast.

Pokemon GO took the world by storm in 2016, as players from all over ventured outside of their homes to catch their favorite monsters. The mobile title developed by Niantic brought the beloved Nintendo RPG to real life for millions.

Unfortunately, because the game takes place in the real world, unexpected things can happen – from fans assaulting each other over Gyms, to even murder. On October 8, a streamer’s broadcast quickly turned violent after they were mugged, much to the horror of their audience.

While there is no video of the incident, viewers tuning it could hear the audio of the terrifying moment. “Whoa dude, I’m live! I’m live! I don’t got nothing. I don’t have anything!” the 23-year old told the assailant.

The thief can be heard telling the Pokemon fan “The f**k wrong with you?!” after they tried to resist the theft. The GO stream then cut off after the criminal stole the player’s phone.

The thieves could be heard talking on the stream after multiple attempts to unlock the victim’s phone. “We got to get up through here really quick. Come on. We got his vape, his car keys, let’s get the whip, right,” they said.

It wasn’t long before the criminals realized that the phone was still broadcasting live. “He was going live? Why does he got so many goddamn portable chargers?” they said, before taking off with the stolen items.

According to Reddit, a police investigation is now underway. At the time of writing, the individuals have not yet been found or arrested. Based on the audio, it appears that the streamer was mugged by four individuals.

This story is sadly another example of how unpredictable the real world can actually be. And unfortunately, that means even players trying to enjoy Pokemon GO outside can sometimes get caught up in some scary situations.
