Thanks to the advent of IRL streaming, Twitch streamers can broadcast their outings and everyday routines for their viewers to take part in – but some streams capture jaw-dropping moments, as evidenced by one streamer’s abhorrent driving skills.

Popular Twitch personality Mitch Jones is one such IRL streamer, a popular face in the IRL community who is now recovering from a ban for using his phone while driving.

However, he wasn’t the one in the driver’s seat, this time: instead, he broadcasted from the passenger’s seat while fellow streamer Kailey ‘kbubblez’ took the wheel – breaking more than a few traffic laws, in the process.

Jones was broadcasting his outing with kbubblez when she blew right through a stop sign at a four-way stop, making a right turn heedless of the other car that had stopped before her.

That wasn’t the only stop sign mishap kbubblez had, by far; she went on to follow another car out of another four-way stop shortly thereafter, nearly crashing into a car who had the right of way as it made to cross the intersection.

“What is this guy fucking doing?” she asked, plowing through the intersection. “I was at the fucking stop sign, asshole.”

Kbubblez’s driving debacles continued from there, as she made a last-minute left-hand turn without stopping to pull into the parking lot of a shopping mall – a move that earned some barely-concealed exasperation from Jones.

“Oh my god, Kaylee,” he commented. “I would literally rather drive looking at my phone.”

“What do you mean?” she asked, just before careening over a speed bump.

Fans across the internet were outraged at Kbubblez’s driving, with many noting the irony of her comment toward the other driver at the second four-way stop.

Jones himself is no stranger to driving troubles: in fact, he was even banned from Twitch for seven days after streaming himself looking at his phone while driving – a punishment that he admitted that he “deserved.”

“As many of you can see, I’ve been banned from Twitch for a week for looking at my phone while driving,” he wrote. “I completely agree. I’m putting myself and others in danger, and I need to be more responsible.”

While Mitch has since recovered from his ban, it looks like he isn’t safe from other driving debacles, just yet.

Logan Paul wants to fight NHL pro Evander Kane after challenging Jake

YouTube sensation Logan Paul responded to a boxing challenge NHL pro Evander Kane issued to his brother, Jake, during the Impaulsive podcast.

Right after Jake scored a stunning knockout on former basketball player Nate Robinson, the San Jose Sharks left-winger sent a challenge Paul’s way, claiming he’s easy, get ‘wrecked.’

Now, one of the Paul brothers has seemingly accepted the challenge, but it wasn’t the one who Kane was expecting.

“San Jose Sharks? What is that exactly? Some sort of fish or aquatic animal who lives in San Jose?” Logan joked and read Kane’s original tweet. (Segment begins at 33:28)

“Put him on a list,” he remarked. “Does Jake Paul vs Evander Kane, is that a headline fight? How many buys does that get?”

While Jake’s last fight was on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s boxing return against Roy Jones JR, some could argue that Paul stole the show with his huge knockout that went viral on social media. It’s unclear if Kane would have the same star power as Robinson.

The podcast members agreed that the fight wouldn’t exactly be worthy of a headliner, but Logan Paul had an idea.

“Or does he just do it because he will get another fantastic f**king knockout? Is he even active?” Logan asked, inquiring about if Kane was still playing in the NHL. “Okay, so when is he going to train boxing? We’ll go through it again. I’ll put a quarter-million down this time.”

With Logan Paul down to step into the ring against Kane, all that was needed was a response by the forward, who wasted no time in accepting the invitation.

In a short eight-second video tweet, the Sharks player accepted the challenge quite confidently.

“Logan Paul, I’ll take the mop off your head and wipe the floor with you,” he said and proceeded to tag the YouTuber in the reply.

It’s unclear when or if this fight actually goes down, especially with Kane being active in the NHL, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. The NHL season is set to begin on January 1 at the earliest, but hopefully, the two can arrange for a fight in the following off-season.
