Fortnite Battle Royale pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney isn’t the only Tenney in town; his brother, Jack ‘JoogSquad’ Tenney also has a substantial internet following, with whom he shared his jaw-dropping encounter on a rainy Florida highway.

If you’ve ever seen the wild news stories about “Florida man,” JoogSquad’s encounter comes as an appropriate addition to the genre.

JoogSquad posted a video of the incident to Twitter on June 13, where he came upon a couple seemingly passed out in their Chevy Silverado pickup truck in the middle of the highway.

Tenney can be seen walking up to the vehicle and asking the driver if he’s alright, as he appears to be unconscious; the driver then lifts up his head at Tenney’s request and drives away, giving viewers a good look at his license plate.

It was for that very reason that Tenney had pulled out his phone to record the interaction, explaining that he’d waved down a police officer and “generally did everything I could to get them off the road.”

“Only in Florida,” JoogSquad wrote of the debacle. “I can’t make this up, a dude and his girlfriend passed out on drugs in the middle of a busy road.”

Despite Tenney’s claims, many commenters argued that the driver was merely looking down at his phone, which seems to hold up under further inspection of the video.

However, Tenney later confirmed beneath the post that both the driver and his girlfriend were, indeed, strung out on drugs, as per his original statement.

“I filmed it because if he was, in fact, on drugs like I suspected,” he continued. “I wanted to not only get him on video, but more importantly, get his plate.”

JoogSquad isn’t the only YouTuber to encounter such a wild situation on the road, either; beauty influencer Cole Carrigan was similarly caught in a dangerous debacle just a week earlier, after a group of bystanders pulled a gun on him in an Uber.

While both JoogSquad and Carrigan emerged from their respective debacles safe and sound, they each documented the incidents, leaving their audiences shocked, appalled, and grateful for their safety upon watching the disturbing footage.

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
