Kid catches on fire while jumping over blazing rope during IRL stream

IRL Twitch streamer CJayRide was horrified after a child appeared to catch on fire while jumping over a flame-covered rope during a live broadcast.

CJayRide was at a fire show at Langkawi Beach in Malaysia, and was mesmerized when he noticed people were jumping rope with fire – a burning twist to the popular activity.

A woman held one end of the rope while a man in a wheelchair grabbed hold of the other and twirled it for on-lookers to join in and partake in the activity.

Twitch/cjayrideThis takes rope burn to a whole other level.

“Jump roping fire? Oh yeah, I used to do this as a kid too,” the IRL streamer sarcastically said as he observed the spectacle, and as the kid began jumping.

“Oh sh*t,” he gasped as the boy did three rotations without fail. However, by the ninth or tenth skip, the young child tripped and appeared to become engulfed in flames.

Quickly, the streamer turned the camera away from the boy and back onto his own paralyzed face, seemingly immobilized in awe at what he’d just witnessed.

“Okay, he’s on fire,” he observed. “That kid is actually on fire. I had to turn the camera. Am I allowed to show that?”

A few moments later, the action picked up with another challenger attempting to jump over the fire rope. However, this time, before the brave attendee could even get a single skip in, the rope hit his leg, prompting him to jump away.

“This is kinda insane,” CJayRide laughed, still in shock.

For his part, the IRL streamer has experienced some crazy sights on his channel. Back in July in 2019, he was attacked by a man who didn’t want to be filmed. One month later, a stream sniper pretended to mug him before revealing the whole thing was just a joke.

It seems like there’s never a dull moment with CJ and hopefully he keeps producing more quality content in 2020.


Is Dixie D’Amelio performing at the Grammys? Twitter reignites wild nominee rumor

Twitter has reignited the wild rumors that Dixie D’Amelio could be performing at the Grammys, and might even win an award. However, that isn’t the case, and here’s why.

A few of the biggest social media stars will, ultimately, crossover into the mainstream and appear on TV, get roles in movies, and some will even go into music.

With the rise of TikTok, there have been a few creators who’ve done all three – with the biggest of which being the D’Amelio’s, Charli, and Dixie. The former appeared in a Super Bowl commercial while Dixie has dropped a few songs, and even had features from One Direction’s Liam Payne.

Now, with awards season on the horizon, Twitter has reignited a rumor about her potentially being up for a Grammy and even performing at the annual show. However, that’s not likely to be the case.

Will Dixie D’Amelio sing at the Grammys?

Back in late December, Dixie responded to a wild set of rumors that she, alongside controversial rapper 6ix9ine, would be opening the Grammys with a performance of one of her songs.

“LMAOOO STOP,” she tweeted, on her now-deleted account. “I’m being set up at this point oh my god,” Dixie added in a follow-up post, before joking that a few fans had been a bit too gullible in eating up the rumor.

Ultimately, to perform at the show, you have to be nominated and Dixie hasn’t made the cut. So, despite Twitter bring the rumor back up, we’ll see probably see someone like Dua Lipa, or Coldplay, or even Beyonce strut their stuff instead.

Is Dixie D’Amelio nominated for a Grammy?

As above, no, Dixie has not been nominated for a Grammy for either of her songs that would be eligible – One Whole Day or Naughty List.

Even though it’s gotten some incredible buzz, her song Roommates is not eligible for this year’s Grammys show because it was released way after the cutoff date for voting. Maybe next year, though?

So, if you’re expecting to see Dixie at the Grammys, the only hope you’ve got is if she’s there as part of the crowd or on the red carpet. Someone might even use TikTok dances in their performance and slip one of her videos in, who knows.

However, she won’t be performing any of her own songs, so, sorry to disappoint anyone who may have been expecting it.
