Popular Twitch streamer Steven ‘Destiny’ Bonnell was forced to shut down his stream from Twitchcon Europe by a member of Twitch staff after streaming from an area in which he shouldn’t.

TwitchCon Europe, which is being held in Berlin, Germany, kicked off on April 13 with streamers and members of the Twitch community from all around the world flocking to the event. While TwitchCon is seemingly designed to celebrate streaming and all things Twitch, there are some areas that are off limits.

Not being able to stream at a streaming event seems like an ironic twist, but that is exactly what Destiny ran into on April 14 while broadcasting on his channel.

The former Starcraft player is now very popular on Twitch.

Twitch staff take issue with Destiny’s stream

The streamer, alongside Harry ‘Hbomberguy’ Brewis, was using a mobile stream to chat to his fan from inside one of the event’s partners lounge. When approached by a member of the Twitch staff who asked what was going on, Destiny tried to cover his tracks by stating that he was ‘vlogging.’

Yet, the staff member didn’t buy it, replying: “This doesn’t look like vlogging, I’m afraid.” Destiny quickly questioned if members were allowed to stream from the more relaxed spot.  “Are you not allowed to stream in here? he inquired, before getting a no reply. “I saw someone walking around… I’m so sorry.”

Before shutting the broadcast off, both Destiny and HBomberguy had to show their passes to the inquiring staff member, who stated – with a smile beaming across his face – that he would remember the names.

Ultimately, the interaction passed over without much fuss – with neither Destiny or the member of staff escalating it any further than it needed to be.

The streamer was, politely, asked to shut down his broadcast as Twitch wanted to keep the room that he was streaming from, stream free.

While that is understandable, it still does seem a little strange that there are restrictions on where people can and can’t stream from at an event designed to celebrate doing just that.

It appears as if Destiny isn’t the only streamer to be shut down during their stream. Pokimane was approached by another member of staff and asked to close her stream off too. However, unlike Destiny, Pokimane was outside of the Partner’s Lounge – casually walking down a hallway. 

It appears as if Twitch is seriously enforcing their rules on relaxed streaming during the event – regardless of who the streamer is. 


Logan Paul wants to fight NHL pro Evander Kane after challenging Jake

YouTube sensation Logan Paul responded to a boxing challenge NHL pro Evander Kane issued to his brother, Jake, during the Impaulsive podcast.

Right after Jake scored a stunning knockout on former basketball player Nate Robinson, the San Jose Sharks left-winger sent a challenge Paul’s way, claiming he’s easy, get ‘wrecked.’

Now, one of the Paul brothers has seemingly accepted the challenge, but it wasn’t the one who Kane was expecting.

“San Jose Sharks? What is that exactly? Some sort of fish or aquatic animal who lives in San Jose?” Logan joked and read Kane’s original tweet. (Segment begins at 33:28)

A post shared by Jake Paul (@jakepaul)

“Put him on a list,” he remarked. “Does Jake Paul vs Evander Kane, is that a headline fight? How many buys does that get?”

While Jake’s last fight was on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s boxing return against Roy Jones JR, some could argue that Paul stole the show with his huge knockout that went viral on social media. It’s unclear if Kane would have the same star power as Robinson.

The podcast members agreed that the fight wouldn’t exactly be worthy of a headliner, but Logan Paul had an idea.

“Or does he just do it because he will get another fantastic f**king knockout? Is he even active?” Logan asked, inquiring about if Kane was still playing in the NHL. “Okay, so when is he going to train boxing? We’ll go through it again. I’ll put a quarter-million down this time.”

With Logan Paul down to step into the ring against Kane, all that was needed was a response by the forward, who wasted no time in accepting the invitation.

In a short eight-second video tweet, the Sharks player accepted the challenge quite confidently.

“Logan Paul, I’ll take the mop off your head and wipe the floor with you,” he said and proceeded to tag the YouTuber in the reply.

It’s unclear when or if this fight actually goes down, especially with Kane being active in the NHL, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. The NHL season is set to begin on January 1 at the earliest, but hopefully, the two can arrange for a fight in the following off-season.
