There was that incident a few months ago with another livestreamer with TTS (text-to-speech) named Arab Andy, who was arrested for allowing a Super Chat counting down a bomb detonation to play in a college library, which caused an evacuation and police to be called in:
Basically, the pull of TTS is for the streamer to walk around and people to make the most offensive/crazy thing possible play, and watch IRL reactions. For this new incident with Andy Warski, TTS caused some crazy guy to follow him and his group around in an obviously threatening way, which resulted in one of his group pulling a gun while Andy screamed threats. Eventually, the guy with the gun tazing the stalker, and cops were called. The tazer was arrested, and Andy himself is probably in deep shit as well because there is video evidence of him actively provoking his companion into brandishing his weapons.
Andy, of course, is one of several pieces of the rotting carcass once known as Internet Bloodsports, which was basically political Jerry Springer - bring on the wackiest people on both sides and let them insult each other and go wild. Somehow internal drama destroyed this seemingly simple premise - Andy kept making and burning partnerships, and there are a whole host of other IBS hosts who crashed and burned even harder than him.
