Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was shocked when her Valorant teammate claimed a man wielding a gun was trying to break into his apartment complex during their match. 

Unlike other entertainment mediums, streaming is as real as it gets due to its live nature. While viewers are watching their favorite personalities, sometimes the real world can disrupt things in a very scary way.

This is what happened during Pokimane’s April 12 Twitch broadcast when one of her teammates claimed someone was breaking into the apartment near them. The Morocco-Canadian was stunned, and urged him to call the police.

“Hey, not gonna lie, someone’s trying to break in my apartment near me, with a gun,” they said. Stunned, Pokimane replied, “Oh my God. Don’t play. Don’t play. Please, go call the cops!” He then added, “I’m being 100% serious, I’ll be back.”

The room then sat in silence, clearly shaken by what happened, when Pokimane said, “That’s scary!” The player’s friend assured them he wasn’t trolling. “He’s my IRL friend, he wouldn’t f**k around.” She replied, “Hopefully everything is okay. Try to check on him ASAP if you can!”

Concerned, Poki then suggested he call the cops or check to see what is happening. “Should you call the cops to his place?” she asked. “I mean, I’m getting ready to call him to see if he’s alright,” he replied.

As the Valorant match continued, the popular streamer told him that it didn’t matter if they won and that he could call now. “You can call him now. We don’t care about winning the game!”

Greek pointed out that their teammate had said “near” his apartment, when the friend stated, “I hear him on his mic now. I think he’s okay.” The TSM personality exclaimed “Oh, thank God!” at the news.

While it’s not entirely clear what happened to Pokimane’s teammate, it appears that in the end he was alright. The moment is an example of how a broadcast can quickly turn serious due to it being live.

Despite the scary situation, the Twitch streamer continues to crush it on the streaming platform. At the time of writing she’s amassed over 4.4 million followers to her channel.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
