Twitch is prominently a gaming platform, with streamers like Shroud and Dr Disrespect making a living off entertaining their fans and playing video games. However, Twitch has been utilized for more than just gaming. Some streamers engage in Twitch IRL streams where they livestream their lives. Twitch channel BeesOnMyHeadTV hosts IRL streams regularly, often streaming himself driving around in his car, which is what he was doing when he was carjacked live on stream.

BeesOnMyHeadTV was streaming on Twitch on September 14, driving around with his friends. They stopped in a parking lot, only for a white car to approach them. Some viewers believe that the they passed the white car previously in the stream, but that hasn't been confirmed at the time of this writing. At any rate, the person driving the white car exits their vehicle and starts firing shots in the air.

What happens next is hard to see because the stream goes black, but we can hear cursing and screaming as BeesOnMyHeadTV's car is stolen. BeesOnMyHeadTV has confirmed that no one was hurt during the incident.

Twitch rarely reveals exactly why a streamer's Twitch channel gets suspended, but we can usually make a pretty accurate guess based on their recent content. In the case of BeesOnMyHeadTV, it's quite likely that his Twitch channel was suspended due to the violent nature of the stream. Of course, BeesOnMyHeadTV being carjacked live on stream is hardly his fault, but Twitch still takes action whenever violent or disturbing content is hosted on its service.

Due to its live nature, Twitch IRL is often home to surprising or shocking scenes that lead to streamers being banned or suspended. One of the most famous examples of this is the now-infamous Dr Disrespect E3 2019 IRL stream. In that stream, the first IRL stream that Dr Disrespect has ever hosted, the streamer was filmed in a public restroom multiple times - which is illegal in the state of California. Twitch responded to the incident by suspending Dr Disrespect's Twitch channel for two weeks.

It's unclear exactly how long BeesOnMyHeadTV's Twitch channel will be suspended.
