In the past, we have talked about some of the wackiest incidents related to streamers. We have seen them get robbed on camera. We have seen streamers record ‘ghosts’ on camera, and some who forget that they were on camera, as they ended up doing the most awkward of things. Finally, some streamers simply took things too far and got banned in return.
It is no secret that the streaming business requires people to be alert all the time. However, streamers are human beings as well, and quite a few times they have been caught doing things that effectively ended their career, in an instant. In this article, we look at five streamers who did just that, in mere seconds.

Again, this is one incident which did not finish the streamer’s career, but brought her way a plethora of criticism. We recently talked about Twitch streamer InvaderVie’s rants against her viewers.
