Twitch streamer and YouTuber Tucker ‘JERICHO‘ Boner uploaded a series of photographs that showed he’d had his car vandalized in the middle of the night, with the culprit leaving some rather crude messages.

If you own a car, one of your worst nightmares is probably that somebody will crash into it, rear-end it at a stop light, or damage it in some ridiculous way, costing you time and a lot of money in repairs.

This fear ended up coming true for streamer JERICHO, who woke up to find that his Mercedes AMG C43 had unfortunately been scribbled on with a permanent marker pen.

JERICHO’s car vandalized

On January 5, the American uploaded a photograph of his vehicle to Twitter with the caption “Are you f**king kidding me. This is permanent marker. Who f**king does this?”

The car’s trunk had been scrawled on with permanent ink, and displayed a crude message that read “c*m in my food,” and some other unintelligible scribblings.

“Like what the F**K,” the YouTube star said in a follow-up tweet. “I am so tired of having my car f**ked with.”

After friends and fans suggested that he use a whiteboard marker to try and lift the ink off, the streamer uploaded another photograph stating that it had been an unsuccessful attempt, and that he’d have to take his car to the dealership. “Expo marker trick doesn’t work well,” he said. “Gonna go to the dealer now I guess.”

The Twitch personality then revealed that his vehicle wasn’t the only one to be targeted – his neighbor had also had their Volkswagen vandalized in a similar manner as well. “Someone was having fun last night, huh?” he tweeted, alongside another photograph. “My neighbors car too.”

While it’s hard to make out exactly what the culprit scribbled on the neighboring car, it appeared to utter similar sentiments about “c*mming” and also bizarrely stated that rapper “Jay Z is dead.”

Luckily for the streamer, the dealership was able to repair the damage pretty quickly and free-of-charge – though they did have a laugh at what was written on the car.

“Thanks for all the suggestions, but I didn’t want to f**k up my paint and lease agreement by accident,” he followed up. “Dealer was cracking up and removed it pretty quick, didn’t charge me either.”

This isn’t the first time JERICHO has experienced issues with people damaging his automobile – someone had also previously stolen the AMG badge from his Mercedes, as well as the registration sticker in February 2019.

While the Twitch personality doesn’t seem to have much luck with his car, he does have luck with followers, and currently boasts over 1.1 million on the platform at this time of writing.

He is known for gaming streams such as Escape from Tarkov, CSGO, and Call of Duty, and also IRL broadcasts such as cooking where he interacts with fans.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
