Twitch bans multiple streamers following reckless driving broadcasts

Thanks to the advent of IRL streaming, internet personalities are free to broadcast their daily lives for their viewers to see – which can sometimes result in the unfortunate documentation of embarrassing moments and even illegal activity.

While it depends on the state, reckless driving can be classified as a felony in the United States, and is considered a major moving traffic violation, punishable by fines and even imprisonment.

Although it’s not part of Twitch’s usual fare, some IRL streamers broadcast their trips on the road – which can end up documenting their terrible driving skills in the process.

FreepikSome streamers choose to broadcast their trips on the road – which can end up documenting their reckless driving.

Twitch streamers and sisters ‘BriandKatie’ were part of one such stream during their drive to VidCon on July 10, which showed the driver (Bri Teresi) eating a pint of ice cream with both hands while using her knees to move the steering wheel.

Bri was also constantly looking over at her sister’s (Katie Teresi) phone during their drive, even reaching across the cab to adjust their camera.

Thankfully, Bri’s distracted driving did not go unpunished, as the sisters’ joint channel was temporarily suspended eight hours after the offending broadcast went live, which Bri acknowledged with a solemn Tweet.

“Our channel got striked on Twitch because I was not being the best driver,” she wrote. “I’m sorry guys, I won’t be distracted while driving again. I realize how stupid & reckless it is.”

The sisters were allegedly given a seven-day ban following their short-lived strike from the site – but they wouldn’t be the first to be punished for driving recklessly, either.

Travel and Outdoor streamer ‘pajalockk’ was likewise hit with the ban hammer after nearly running over pedestrians on two separate occasions during a livestreamed drive on June 10 – all within a span of thirty seconds.

Popular IRL streamer Mitch Jones was similarly banned from Twitch after looking down at his phone during a livestreamed drive in late June – a punishment that he ultimately “agreed” with.

However, Jones’ housemate and fellow streamer ‘Kbubblez’ has likewise come under fire for her horrendous driving skills, as shown in a nail-biting clip taken from Jones’ stream where she ran two stop signs and nearly rammed into another car.

While it’s unlikely that Kbubblez will receive a ban for traffic violations (as she wasn’t streaming), it’s clear that Twitch is cracking down on reckless driving on the platform: a development that will hopefully lend greater awareness to safe driving in future broadcasts.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
