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.”

You can find the Pineapple Queen on her Twitch Channel, or follow her on Twitter, where she promotes her channel and updates her 3,000+ followers.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
