The launch of French media company Webedia’s LeLive program didn’t go to plan, as the Twitch channel was plagued with problems before it found itself being banned after only a few hours. 

The LeLive launch kicked off on Monday, February 3 as Webedia looks to expand its online presence by adding to a brand-new Twitch program for younger viewers on their pre-existing YouTube, Dailymotion, Mixer, Molotov TV, Snapchat, TikTok, Twitter, and Facebook channels.

The program is supposed to offer evening streaming – kicking off at 5PM CET and running through until midnight. Guests who have made their name from content creation, being an influencer, or just a general celebrity are getting involved. Yet, their arrival on Twitch is going to have to wait.

During the launch stream on February 3, the stream was only a few minutes old when one of the presenters, Kevin Razy, walked onto the stream and struck up a conversation with some of his other hosts.

However, when referencing “YouTube money” in their talk, Razy dropped a racial slur immediately after. 

While the full broadcast of the stream has since been deleted and isn’t available anyway, some viewers were able to quickly capture the clip and re-publish. In the aftermath, though, the channel has found itself banned – seemingly because it had been reported due to the use of a slur.

With the channel being struck down by Twitch, some jokesters stepped in and took over the official name with demands of €5,000 to hand it back over.

Someone quickly grabbed the LeLive channel and won’t hand it back without payment.

Even when they were online and broadcasting though, it wasn’t like LeLive had the smoothest of streams to begin with.

Fans on Twitter and in Twitch chat complained about issues with sound delays and other glitches. The channel did manage to get them figured out just before they got banned, however. 

According to a report from BFMTV, the next airing of the LeLive program is set to be on Thursday, February 6, even though the Twitch channel is still banned at this time.

Fans will still be able to check it out on the likes of YouTube, Mixer, and Facebook, but whether or not they’ll be able to return to Twitch anytime soon still remains to be seen.

A watch expert on YouTube has taken it upon himself to take a look at the timepieces of some of the platform’s biggest stars, revealing the surprising cost of some of their watches, as well as roasting a few of them, too.

Pride & Pinion is a luxury watch boutique in Belfast, Northern Ireland, run by Dutch-born Nico van der Horst, who in 2020 has taken it upon himself to educate people on watches: most notably, some of the biggest names on YouTube.

Having previously taken a look at the watch collections of the likes of Logan Paul and KSI, as well as megastars such as Leo Messi, Post Malone and Floyd Mayweather, Nico decided to give his honest opinion on certain YouTubers’ watches, as well as explain how much they cost.

Clearly, Nico knows what he’s talking about, and he thinks some of these YouTubers have made some questionable decisions when forking out tens of thousands on these timepieces.

Nico knows all there is to know about luxury watches.

The creators he looks at range from Casey Neistat, to PewDiePie, to Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau: and he wasn’t afraid to hold back if he thought they had overspent.

YouTubers’ watch prices

Nico was impressed by some of the watches on display, though, and definitely by the financial decisions some of them were able to make.

Here are all the pieces he evaluated, including how much they cost:

  • Casey Neistat: Yellow gold Rolex Submariner with black dial — $20,000+
  • True Geordie: Yellow gold and steel Rolex Submariner — $10,000+
  • WillNE: Two-tone Rolex Sky-Dweller — ~$20,000
  • Vikkstar: Hublot Fusion Chronograph — No price stated
  • Trisha Paytas: Chanel J12 — $5,000 pre-owned
  • Tana Mongeau: Fully iced out Rolex Datejust — $15,000 (bought by Jake Paul)
  • PewDiePie: Rolex GMT-Master II — $10,000

Verdicts

Obviously, Nico was a bigger fan of some watches than he was of others. While he was very impressed by that of WillNE, Casey Neistat and True Geordie, he clearly had huge admiration for PewDiePie, especially the reasons for why he chose that watch.

On the other hand, there were some he hated. He said that Vikkstar “needs some help with the watch game,” refers to Trisha’s Chanel piece as “just sh*t” and Tana’s as “aftermarket garbage.”

Clearly, Nico knows a thing or two about watches — and maybe these YouTubers need him to guide them along the right path when it comes to their wrist jewelry.
