Popular content creator ‘twomad’ was left fuming after a viewer stole his one million YouTube subscriber plaque live on-stream.

Twitch streamers often try to take every precaution possible when broadcasting live to thousands of viewers, fom obscuring their IP address to hiding their search history. However, information tends to slip through the cracks every now and then in a quick lapse of judgment.

Twomad was in the midst of a celebratory stream on April 7 when he accidentally let some vital information appear on-screen.

Known for prank videos, amusing commentary, and meme compilations, twomad has grown quite the following across social media. Especially on YouTube where he boasts more than 1.12 million subscribers.

Upon reaching the million subscriber landmark, every YouTuber is awarded a golden plaque. This is a unique accomplishment that put twomad in rarified air, though the physical gift was snatched from him during an April 7 stream.

Glossing over his creator studio on YouTube while broadcasting on Twitch, he accidentally revealed a one-time-use code to redeem his golden play button.

“Don’t use my f***ing code,” he joked before realizing that the 12-digit combination had, in fact, already been stolen by a viewer in chat.

“Yo, for real, don’t f*** with me,” he snapped. “That’s my one million plaque. Are you f***ing kidding me?”

As he tried to redeem the code for himself, an error message appeared. A viewer from his chat had already grabbed the combination and secured the play button.

“Give it back, what the f*** are you doing? Give it back you f***ing people,” he repeatedly yelled before throwing his arms up in frustration and leaving his desk.

“Someone stole my 1 million subscriber code while I was livestreaming my desktop,” he later tweeted, asking TeamYouTube if they could “[please] help.”

With such a huge following on the platform, it’s likely that twomad will be able to speak with YouTube support staff and fix the situation. After all, the content creator has video-evidence of the theft.

This mishap should serve as a lesson moving forward, however, and the streamer will likely be far more cautious when sharing screens in the future.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
