IRL streamer Ebenezer ‘EBZ’ Lembe has come under fire for seemingly passing out behind the wheel of his car while driving on a freeway. 

EBZ is an IRL (in real-life) streamer who can be found broadcasting on his own website rather than Twitch, and gained popularity after popping up in streams from Ice Poseidon‘s infamous CX crew. 

He usually finds himself in the thick of hilarious antics that end up with him raging at something or someone – be it a hotel employee, a viewer, or even a parking attendant. Yet, he’s found himself in hot water after having yet another dangerous moment behind the wheel of his own car.

YouTube: EBZEBZ can usually be found streaming from his home or his car.

During his October 26 stream, EBZ was driving along the 134 Freeway in Los Angeles towards Burbank when he became quiet and his car slowly but surely started to lose speed while everyone else around him sped up.

After a few moments, where the car appeared as if it was going to stop altogether and other drivers were having to quickly adjust to avoid him, EBZ’s car quickly sped back up and started cutting across lanes – even though he remained silent.

The dangerous moment made its way to the Livestream Fail subreddit, where many Redditors slammed him for actions. “He goes from sleeping while driving to speeding. He’s gonna end up killing someone one day,” commented Kwoui.

Others added: “Falling asleep and then going into the carpool lane with no passengers and then cutting over the double yellow line. He needs to lose his license.” While one asked: “How is this man still allowed to operate a vehicle?”

Other members of the subreddit, like SirBrascal580, suggested that someone should “report his a** to the police.” After it all, it’s not the first time EBZ has come under criticism for dangerous driving

Whether or not the streamer will face any consequences for his actions remains to be seen, but with a clear pattern emerging, he may want to reconsider his driving broadcasts.

After receiving a huge $2,500 donation, Twitch streamer HAchubby celebrated in a rather unexpected manner that made for an amazing Twitch highlight.

If you’re a fan of Twitch and you tune into the platform regularly then you’ll know that watching streamers receive huge donations is always entertaining. Audiences love watching them so much, there’s even a sub-genre of videos on YouTube that are dedicated to donating huge amounts of money to streamers to see their reactions.

It’s no surprise these videos get millions of views as it’s always great content to see a Twitch streamer having their day made by a big donation. Of course, it’s difficult to predict how someone will act after being donated a large amount of money.

In HAchubby’s case, it involved celebrating by running around her store with a basket on her head.

HAchubby celebrates huge Twitch donation

During her January 19 stream, HAchubby received a huge $2,500 Twitch donation from one of her viewers. Of course, she was extremely grateful for the donation and expressed how thankful she was: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god thank you so much.”

At first, it appeared as if she was going to carry on with the stream, but then she suddenly burst into a celebratory dance. Her Twitch chat erupted with messages and her viewers were clearly happy to see how thankful she was for the donation.

It was at that point she grabbed a basket from the store that she owns and began running about the aisle with it on her head. The highlight made for a hilarious Twitch clip and it was obvious how much the donation meant to her.

There’s no denying it’s not your typical reaction to a donation, but it’ll certainly be a memorable highlight for any of her viewers watching live. On top of this, you can guarantee it’ll be added to the range of streamer donation clips featured in various compilation videos.

We’ll have to keep our eye for any more big donations that HAchubby receives to see how she reacts the second time around.
