A police officer who was off on sick leave spent her time off wisely – playing and streaming Fortnite Battle Royale in ‘racy’ outfits, and making some cash.
‘The Pineapple Queen’, real name Sergeant Leanne Carr, is apparently an avid gamer, and has become a popular live streamer, getting her name from the rather revealing pineapple bikini she wears on broadcast.
Having been signed off from her police day job in Lincolnshire, UK, reportedly to recover from stress following an ‘internal misconduct inquiry’, which has now been resolved.
Carr returned to full time work in January after her sick leave, but received criticism from some UK tabloid newspapers after posting topless photos will abroad during her time off.
As reported by LADBible, one of Carr’s superiors gave this statement about her livestreams, which have begun to attract increased attention.
“When an officer is absent due to illness, regular contact is maintained and they are entitled to do as they wish, including going on holiday, as long as it does not prohibit their return to work as soon as possible.
I am satisfied this officer returned as soon as she was able.”
So The Pineapple Queen is perfectly within her rights to stream and continue her social media presence and ‘allowed to have a private life’.
Fortnite is of course the smash game taking over the world of streaming, so there is no better game for Carr to grow her Twitch Channel.
Her social media accounts are fine by the police force, provided there are no rules broken. Speaking to The Sun, Detective Supt Suzanne Davies said:
“If anything is included on those accounts that breaches the high standards a police officer should maintain at all times we will investigate and act accordingly to make sure that is dealt with appropriately.”
