An IRL Twitch streamer seemed to be threatened by an alleged member of the notorious gang MS-13 during a January 8 broadcast.

California-based Streamer “jonsf” was walking down the street at night, filming himself and interacting with his viewers, when suddenly a woman off-screen asked him if he had a camera.

“Yeah, it’s a camera,” the IRL streamer replied.

“What are you doing with that camera?” the pedestrian responded. After learning that jonsf was live streaming, the now-revealed woman began inquiring more about what exactly he was broadcasting.

“Like Korea Town kinda stuff?” she sarcastically asked.

“Yeah, right. Exactly like Korea Town,” jonsf replied before being interrupted again.

“You know what’s in Korea Town?” she quizzed. “Korea Town became Latino Town. Do you know what is in Korea Town now?”

As it turned out, she was alluding to the international crime gang Mara Salvatrucha, otherwise known as MS-13. After getting in nice and close to the streamer and claiming that neither South or North Koreans could join, she shouted MS-13 right in jonsf’s face.

“This is my territory!” she cried. “Get your Korean a** [inaudible],” she demanded before walking in the opposite direction, seemingly threatening the streamer – who isn’t even Korean to begin with.

jonsf/TwitchJonsf left the confrontation unscathed.

For his part, while speechless, jonsf was unfazed by the whole ordeal and resumed talking with his stream shortly thereafter.

“She threw f**king trivia at me,” he laughed. “And I was like ‘oh sh*t.’ What is this f**king Jeopardy?”

Still, encountering a potential MS-13 gang member can be quite nerve-racking. According to a 2009 National Gang Threat Assessment, MS-13 has 8,000 to 10,000 members residing in the United States and as many as 50,000 members worldwide.

Their criminal activities include, but are not limited to, murder, human trafficking, kidnapping and larceny.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
