Twitch streamer ‘HoshmandPlays’ was broadcasting live while riding his bike in the Bronx area of New York City when an unknown assailant on a moped stopped and proceeded to rob him.

IRL – or “in-real-life” – livestreams are often known for their unpredictable nature, with wild and unexpected things happening all the time. Sometimes it’s more lighthearted, and sometimes it’s just downright terrifying. The unpredictability of the real world is a gamble that all broadcasters take every time they decide to turn the camera on.

One such scary event happened on September 18 to Twitch streamer HoshmandPlays. While riding his bike in New York, a man on a moped stopped him and proceeded to shake him down for his belongings, leaving both he and his viewers in shock at what had just happened.

The streamer’s day started off innocent enough, as he casually rode around the streets of NYC while broadcasting to his fanbase in a first-person point of view.

Suddenly, a man on a moped stopped Hoshmand and started asking him inaudible questions, before stating, “I can take all your s**t…Do you know who I am, bro?…I’ll punch you.”

“I’m not gonna do that. I don’t know what you want,” the 17-year-old stated as he began to back away, to which the assailant responded, “All jokes aside though, I ain’t even playing. Do you know who I am, bro? Real s**t though, the big guns, bro. Stop playing with me, bro.”

The streamer managed to get away, but was unfortunately cornered by the man again further up the street. “Damn! No!” he yelled, as the thief asked “Why you trying to run from me, bro?”

“What the f**k do you want?!” he questioned urgently, to which the stranger responded, “You know what I want, stop playing with me, bro! Give me your money!…Let me see what’s in the bag!”

As most of the situation played out off-camera, Dexerto reached out to Hoshmand for more information regarding the crime. “He took my backpack off of me while I was trying to get away and he stole my iPad that I was using for streaming,” he said. “But then he left my backpack so he only got my iPad.”

He then revealed that he’d called the police to report the incident, but that the robber had unfortunately gotten away. “I immediately called 911 after he left and cops arrived pretty fast but he was already gone by then. The cops and I started looking for him nearby in the cop car and couldn’t find him, but the cops are trying to track him down now.”

Mukbang YouTuber devastated as cheese fondue attempt ends in disaster

A mukbang YouTuber called Tasty Hoon is going hugely viral after his attempt at putting cheese in a fondue machine went hilariously wrong, leaving him and his viewers bewildered.

In recent years, the mukbang format has garnered insane popularity, spreading to just about every corner of the internet. The video style originated in Korea, the word mukbang (먹방) being a portmanteau of the Korean words for eat, and broadcast.

It involves the host of the video or stream eating an enormous amount of food on camera, often with a high-quality microphone to capture the raw eating sounds (a big part of the fun for some,) while interacting with their audience.

While the eating show format has spread globally, Korea is often revered as having the best mukbangs of them all, the ambitious amounts of food and varying cuisines proving to be hugely entertaining for the droves of people who love that style of content.

Tasty Hoon has tried several delicious looking foods in his short time on YouTube.

Tasty Hoon is one such YouTuber who wanted to give the mouthwatering content a go, making his attempt at a cheese fondue machine paired with fried chicken. But the results weren’t quite as dreamy as he perhaps expected.

After pouring the delicious-looking melted cheese into the bottom of the fondue machine everything was looking to be going to plan, but the second he hit the on-button, it seemed to be struggling a bit with the rather thick cheese.

Things quickly took a turn for the worse when the center of the machine start to actually lift off from the device altogether, and globs of cheese started to spin around at frightening speeds. As parts of the machine started to fall off, the cheese did not stop spinning, until eventually every bit of the previously delicious looking stuff had been flung across the room.

As Hoon finally turned the machine off, it wasn’t quite clear whether he was on the brink of laughter or tears – though understandably it was most likely both.

But not one to be beaten by a haywire fondue machine, he picked bits of the once airborne cheese off the table and began to eat it alongside his chicken. Just not in the way that he’d originally intended.

The clip went crazy on Twitter, with one tweet sharing the food disaster garnering a whopping 370,000 likes and 114,000 retweets.

In the comments, Hoon thanked everyone for enjoying the video and remarked that he was surprised to wake up and find he’d become a star overnight.

He also hinted that he’d give the cheese fountain another try soon, so no doubt people are anticipating what could be an equally hilarious sequel.
