As IRL streaming grows in popularity, more and more streamers are broadcasting their daily lives for all to see – but sometimes, these broadcasts can capture awkward, unexpected, and sometimes downright shocking moments as they unfold in real time.

While many IRL streamers showcase nights out on the town, international travels, and high-class food for their fans, that’s not always the case, as real-life sometimes throws curveballs right in the face of their content plans.

In fact, some IRL streamers have even caught acts of blatant racism, pickpocketing, and fistfights on camera as they actually happen – but one internet personality recorded a scandal of a different kind.

Partnered Twitch streamer “Jaystreazy” is known for broadcasting his international travels and food conquests, boasting an audience of over 14k followers on the platform thanks to his IRL antics.

However, a recent clip from his stream is putting him on the radar for an unexpected reason, after catching a thief taking food from a grocery store during a broadcast.

Footage from Jaystreazy’s stream shows a man in a blue shirt exiting the store with items in hand, which Jay clarified was food.

“Dude, that guy just walked in and stole a bunch of food and then just left,” he explained in muted shock. “That was crazy.”

When his chat suggested he perform a citizens’ arrest on the thief, Jay immediately declined, going on to further explain what had happened for those who couldn’t clearly see the theft.

“It looked like a homeless man, who may have had some mental issues,” the streamer explained. “He just walked into the grocery store, right in the store entrance, there’s a bunch of food that you can take to eat… he just walked in, grabbed some stuff, and walked out. That was it.”

This wouldn’t be the first time a streamer has caught a theft going down on camera, either: popular streamer Giannie Lee unknowingly filmed a pickpocket pilfering her partner’s wallet during a May 21 broadcast, who eventually “returned” the item to seemingly avoid suspicion.

No matter the circumstances, IRL streams often deliver such unexpected moments to unsuspecting audiences, making for one of the most unpredictable genres on massive platforms like Twitch on a near-constant basis.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
