As internet personalities gain more and more fame, it makes sense that they would start being recognized in public settings, as Twitch streamer Kaceytron discovered during a live broadcast.

Kaceytron is known for her humorous gaming streams and gratuitous show of cleavage, appearing to embrace criticism surrounding her status as a female gamer.

However, Kaceytron doesn’t box herself inside the gaming genre; she likewise broadcasts IRL streams, during one of which she was recognized by passersby in a humorous interaction.

Kaceytron, TwitchWhile Kaseytron is known for her gaming streams, she isn’t new to IRL broadcasts either, as seen in a hilarious clip of her interaction with fans.

Kacey was walking down a sidewalk at night when she passed by a boisterous group of men, who commented on her “selfie stick.”

“It’s not a fucking selfie stick,” she whispered to her stream in apparent annoyance.

She was quickly interrupted by a member of the group, who loudly yelled, “Are you Kaceytron?” from across the sidewalk.

The rest of the gang joined in, with chants of “Kaceytron!” and assorted cheers – much to her embarrassment.

“Oh, god,” she laughed, giving the guys a friendly wave before walking away.

“What if I just took off running?” She jokingly asked her chat. “See, guys? I’m famous.”

Kaceytron, TwitterKaceytron called out Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR over Twitter just a few days prior to her hilarious on-stream encounter, criticizing him for body shaming model Corinna Kopf.

Aside from her IRL run-in with fans, Kaceytron also spoke out against Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem on Twitter in early March, who came under fire for “body shaming” Instagram model Corinna Kopf in late February.

The streamer called KEEMSTAR a “disgusting, misogynistic piece of trash” for his comments in response to Kopf’s tweet, noting the KEEMSTAR had covered the swatting of her home on Christmas Eve – in spite of her attempts at damage control.

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
