Illegal UFC 246 Live Stream Cut After Embarrassing Text Message Appears In Feed
A streamer was left red-faced and forced to close down their illegal UFC 246 stream due to an embarrassing text that appeared in the live feed.
The UFC event was held last Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which was headlined by Conor McGregor's return clash with Donald Cerrone.
And SkarrsWorld decided to live stream UFC 246 on the Amazon-owned Twitch platform.
However, the user endured a humiliating moment during the live stream when a text message showed a very personal matter on screen.
"Denzel pressed charges on you so if you come around you're getting [...] until court day," the message reads.
"Give your uncle the house key now I'm coming to pick [...]"
Part of the message couldn't be seen due to the UFC 246 poster that was placed on the left-hand side of the video.
But that wasn't enough to stop Twitch users from posting the clip to the LivestreamFail subreddit, which has amassed over 100,000 views.
SkarrsWorld's Twitch account remains active, despite the streaming platform taking a hard-line stance on illegal streams.
However, Twitch does rely on its user base to actively report content that shouldn't belong on the platform.
Twitch outlines in its community guidelines that any form of breaking the law is "prohibited."
The Amazon-owned platform explained: "You must respect all applicable local, national and international laws while using our services.
"Any content or activity featuring, encouraging, offering or soliciting illegal activity is prohibited."
This isn't the first time that a Twitch user has been caught illegally streaming a UFC event online.
Gamer AJ Lester sneakily pretended to play a game while streaming the entirety of UFC 218 in 2017.
