Twitch streamer John Zherka was left stunned after a chance encounter with Law & Order actor Jesse L. Martin while broadcasting live from Vancouver, Canada.

One of the incredible things about livestreaming on Twitch is the fact that anything can happen at any time, leading to some hilarious moments or shocking turns of events.

For IRL streamers, that chance is even greater, with random passers-by on the street finding their way into broadcasts, and often stealing the show.

That was the case on November 14, when while petting the dog of a stranger on a Vancouver street, John Zherka found himself face-to-face with a famous actor without even knowing.

YouTube: The CWJesse L. Martin is a series regular on CW’s The Flash.

In fact, it wasn’t until his chat alerted him that he had any idea who he was talking to, and had to ask multiple times for clarification, seemingly unsure if his viewers were messing with him, or being serious.

“Guy from Flash. Are you an actor?” the streamer asked. “Like in movies and TV? You’re famous!”

The responses of “yes” sent the streamer into a bout of excitement, explaining that he was “internet famous” on Twitch all while in a state of shock that he had just met him randomly on the street.

It’s no surprise that Zherka’s fans recognized the actor immediately, with Jesse L. Martin appearing in the very first episode of The Flash, DC’s show about the lightning-quick superhero.

Since then, he’s gone on to appear in 119 editions of the show, and also played Ed Green in American crime drama Law & Order, in which he starred 198 times over nine years.

For Zherka, it just goes to show you never know who you’ll bump into on the street, and for viewers, it’s a reminder that you never know who could pop in your favorite streamer’s broadcast.

Bryce Hall puts Quen Blackwell on blast after Griffin Johnson TikTok drama

Following on from Quen Blackwell and Griffin Johnson’s social media clash, Bryce Hall has now jumped into the mix and lashed back at the original post that kickstarted the feud.

If you’re not up to speed on the latest TikTok kerfuffle, don’t stress. Here’s a quick refresher. Two days ago social media celeb Quen Blackwell reacted to a TikTok post featuring Bryce Hall and Addison Rae.

Their relationship has been hot and cold throughout most of the year. Blackwell took the opportunity to joke about the on-again, off-again couple, yelling “no” at the top of lungs in her own post. While Johnson was the first to take issue with her comedic reaction, Hall has now fired back as well.

Rather than calling her out on social media, however, Hall allegedly got in touch and hashed it out directly. It’s clear that things didn’t go down all too well between the pair as he’s since gone on to expose their private conversation.

“So I confronted her and talked about it,” he said. As it turns out, Blackwell was forthcoming with her intentions. “I only do this for likes and being relatable,” she explained, according to Hall.

“I get it, you’re just doing it for numbers. It had like 1.5 million likes, I get it,” Hall assured. As social media personalities, both have their own audiences and both create content to generate engagement. While that TikTok may have struck a nerve at first, it seemed as though they were able to get on the same page in their chat.

That mutual respect didn’t stand for all too long though. Blackwell claimed she wouldn’t do it again, though that wasn’t the case as she touched on the subject 24 hours later before deleting her videos. “It’s so fake,” Hall said in response.

“Now that she’s deleted the videos, we’re friends again. We’re gonna be like the rest of these social media people and just act as though nothing happens behind the scenes.”


Clearly not too pleased with how the drama unfolded, Hall can at least respect that Blackwell deleted her latest videos. At the time of writing, this seems to be the end of the controversy. Though it could all kick off once more if Blackwell goes back on her word yet again.
