Twitch streamer ‘TrainwrecksTV‘ gets into a heated back and forth with aggressive driver during an IRL stream.

TrainwrecksTV is known for not shying away from confrontation, as he is often seen debating current topics with other streamers and appears on numerous podcasts, including his own, the “Scuffed Podcast.”

On his way home from an IRL Stream at Topgolf with his friends, Trainwrecks found himself being harassed by a passing truck, but it was unclear what caused the truck driver to be so upset.

Trainwreckstv / twitchTrainwrecksTV decided to IRL stream his session at Topgolf with friends.

The truck driver then slowed down to match the pace of Trainwrecks’ car so that the passenger could roll down his window, giving Trainwrecks the middle finger, clearly blaming him for the incident which occurred on the road.

Trainwrecks didn’t take the aggressive driver’s actions lightly, as he responded to the truck driver, saying, “Real badass […] get the fuck out of here!“ before catching back up to the driver and mocking him some more “you’re so tough bro, yeah that’s super tough.”

After a bit of back and forth, the driver began to escalate the situation while responding to Trainwrecks, seemingly yelling and gesturing for him to pull in up ahead so that the two of them could fight on the street, saying, “Me and you, come on show me!”

Before Trainwreckstv had a chance to respond to the offer, the truck driver began to pull off ahead of the car, shouting a homophobic slur, leaving Trainwrecks speechless for a moment.

Trainwrecks later explained to his viewers that the truck driver was not paying attention to the road and was too close to his car when Trainwrecks slowed to merge lanes, apparently causing the truck driver to swerve to avoid rear ending Trainwrecks car.

He also stated that had he not been live on Twitch, he might have reacted differently to the altercation, but didn’t want to break any rules on the platform.

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.
