UPDATE 5:25PM PST SEPTEMBER 18:

BeesOnMyHeadTV’s “indefinite” Twitch suspension was short lived, as he has now been unbanned on the platform.


Streaming service Twitch has banned ‘BeesOnMyHeadTV’ from its platform for the foreseeable future after he was carjacked and shot at during a live broadcast.

While in-real-life broadcasting is a popular category on streaming websites such as Twitch and YouTube, sometimes it also brings the harsh reminder that life stops for no-one and unexpected and unpredictable things can happen.

IRL streamer BeesOnMyHeadTV found this out the hard way during his livestream on September 14 after he was suddenly shot at and carjacked. Twitch suspended his account for the behaviour caught on camera, and has since informed the streamer that he won’t be getting it back any time soon.

Twitch banned the IRL streamer

On September 16, BeesOnMyHeadTV tweeted out a screenshot of an email he’d received from Twitch after his account was banned.

The email in question states that the platform had taken the decision to suspend the user and issue a Community Guidelines strike against him to “protect his privacy” due to an “on-screen emergency”.

Fans flooded his replies with comments, unhappy that the streamer had been banned for the foreseeable future for a situation that wasn’t his fault.

Another person argued against the streamer’s outrage, and said that Twitch made a logical decision in banning him, as it would forcefully remove the clip from its website.

“While it does suck that you got banned, Twitch did make the logical decision.” the user commented. “They don’t want a VOD going around on their site showing some maniac firing a gun off.”

“Surely they could have accomplished this without the strike?” a fan replied, questioning why the platform would suspend the IRL streamer instead of simply removing the video.

BeesOnMyHeadTV might be able to return to Twitch if he contests his ban with the streaming service, as it’s been known to lift “indefinite” suspensions in the past.

Dexerto will update the article if any further developments regarding the situation occur.

MrBeast will literally send your message to the moon: How to enter

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is once again putting his wealth to great use by letting fans literally send pictures and videos to the moon after buying space on a NASA rover.

On January 24, the YouTube star announced that fans can start sending him their content in the form of photos or videos, and he will put them on an official NASA rover. The only catch is that it costs $10 to do so and videos need to be just one second long.

“Later this year NASA is putting a rover on the moon and I managed to buy storage space on it. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys put whatever you want on the moon,” MrBeast said in a follow-up to his announcement tweet.

In a video detailing the new project on his website, Donaldson explains how he thought it would be cool to create the world’s first digital time capsule.

“Every single one of you that puts something on the moon will get a certificate of authenticity,” he elaborated. “So, for decades to come you can prove to people that you literally put something on the moon.”

According to MrBeast, the possibilities are endless (as long as it’s legal) with fans being able to put a picture of their mom, dog, Elon Musk, or the three together.

“This is your first and possibly only chance to ever put a photo or video on the moon,” he added. “I genuinely need your help to help preserve humanity.”

How to enter

Basically, how it works is really straight forward. All fans have to do is follow these instructions.

First, head on over to MrBeast’s site and select which bundle you want, as some more expensive options come with a T-shirt or hoodie.

Next, pay to add partake in the experience and select what video or photo you want to go to the moon and upload it to MrBeast’s site.

Making it to the moon has never been easier.

That’s it, you’re done. MrBeast’s team will load the content into a “moon-ready” harddrive and NASA will send the hard drive to the moon.

If you know anyone who is really interested in space, this could be a really cool surprise for them. Go ahead and reach for the stars.
