Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar had to, once again, issue a plea to his viewers to not disrupt other GTA RP streamers during an in-game interaction.

Why is Summit playing GTA RP?

Like many streamers, Summit has been dabbling in the GTA RP multiplayer mod – entertaining viewers with his escapades around Los Santos while playing as his ‘Charles Johnson’ gangster character on the popular NoPixel server.

However, streaming the game hasn’t been exactly problem free, with Summit fighting a constant battle to control parts of his viewership from ruining other streamers enjoyment with the game.

Twitch: SsaabThe GTA RP multiplayer mod has taken over the Twitch viewership charts in recent weeks.

What happened during Summit’s GTA RP stream?

On April 1, the popular Twitch streamer laid down the law to members of his chat who had been ‘harassing’ other GTA RP streamers when they believed that Summit was being ‘stream sniped’ and having his RP sessions interrupted.

The streamer was thrust back into the position of having to control his chat on April 5 during an in-game interaction with the game’s police department.

“Don’t spread toxicity, please don’t go anywhere,” Summit told his chat after he had been pulled over by one of the game’s police officers, requesting that they not go to another streamer’s chat and enrage them.

“I don’t know who this guy is. Don’t go anywhere, it’s not a problem,” said the streamer, continuing his plea. “Please, I can get frustrated without you guys [the chat] having to fight a battle, ok? Please.”

After making his plea on April 1, Summit revealed that he was going to start reminding viewers not to antagonize other streamers by being ‘toxic’ or metagaming, placing spoilers about the games in other chats, during streams.

Controlling a rabid fanbase who are desperate to be a part of the broadcast is an almost impossible task, but Summit has already laid the foundations by following through on his April 1 reminder.

It remains to be seen if rogue viewers of his stream still attempt to metagame in the future, but at least the streamer is trying to reign it in before it gets completely out of hand.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
