IRL streamer Ebenezer ‘EBZ’ Lembe hit out at his own chat after claiming that they distracted him as he nearly rear-ended a car that he was following.

As an IRL [in-real life] streamer, EBZ showcases many facets of his life – be it at home, walking round, or quite often driving around. It’s his driving exploits that have landed the streamer in trouble on more than one occasion.

Back in October, he was criticized for seemingly passing out behind the wheel. The streamer, who gained popularity as a part of Ice Poseidon‘s infamous CX crew, even lost his mind with a parking attendant who was just trying to do her job. However, in recent weeks, he’s gotten into more serious trouble – receiving a $700 ticket from the police for speeding.

Despite that, the streamer has already gotten back on the road, continuing on with his streams from behind the wheel of his car. During his January 2 broadcast, EBZ had been back on the road when he found himself in some slow-moving traffic.

As he chatted with fans, the streamer left a gap between himself and a car in front of his camera. As the cars moved and EBZ went to fill the gap, he came within meters of hitting the car in front of him before blaming his chat for him almost getting into a crash.

“You motherf*ckers are distracting me. Sh*t, you made me almost have a rear-end accident,” the streamer said, taking aim at his viewers. “I can’t talk to y’all no more. I was about to get into a wreck and if I had gotten into a wreck because I was answering you, guess what you would have said? ‘What an idiot.’”

He wasn’t finished there, though, as he stated that there would have to be some changes. EBZ continued: “From now on, you’ve got to talk to me. There’s too many of y’all to share the blame, f*ck out of here.”

Whether or not the streamer carries on with his car-based streams remains to be seen but it might be something he considers getting rid of, especially considering the dangers.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
