Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is starting 2019 off with a bang, after revealing his upcoming documentary covering the ‘flat earth’ community and launching his new ‘imPaulsive’ podcast.

Paul is now rolling out an entire web series, titled ‘Best Friends.’ The YouTuber uploaded a trailer for the series on January 31, which featured both Paul and internet comedian Evan ‘Dwarf Mamba’ Eckenrode of Vine fame.

The trailer in question features a slew of hilarious hijinks, from the two demolishing a shack with a bulldozer, horseback riding in a corral, cross-dressing, and even being approached by law enforcement.

The series is set to launch on February 5, 2019, with episodes airing every Tuesday thereafter.

It is worth noting that Paul’s new series is not a YouTube Original; following Paul’s scandal in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest,’ his movie ‘The Thinning 2’ was postponed, and his appearance in show ‘Foursome’ was scrapped altogether.

This isn’t the first project Paul has unleashed in recent months, either; the YouTuber likewise spilled the tea on his upcoming ‘flat earth’ documentary during a podcast on January 31, where he admitted that his appearance at the Flat Earth International Conference in 2018 was a mere stunt made as part of the film.

Paul likewise made the jump into podcasts in recent months, launching his ‘imPaulsive’ show in mid-November of 2018.

Paul also revealed that he has an animated series in the works, as well as a mysterious music career that he called “experimental.”

Paul’s teaser for his ‘Best Friends’ series follows his “going gay” scandal in early January of 2019, where the YouTuber received widespread backlash for claiming that he would only date men for the entire month of March as part of his New Year’s resolution.

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.
