YouTube Gaming star Darren “IShowSpeed” wanted to play a scary game on his October 7 broadcast. While installing the game, the PC’s operating system notified the streamer that the game might be a virus.
He launched the malicious application despite Windows warning him that he was installing dangerous software.
Shortly after, Darren’s PC was hacked live on stream and he started flipping. After watching his desktop start working, the former Twitch streamer exclaimed loudly:
“Oh no! F**k, no! No, no, no, no! F**k! No!”
IShowSpeed panics after his PC is hacked live on stream
During the closing moments of the YouTuber’s most recent broadcast, Darren wanted to install a game called Monoxider64, claiming the game was “really scary.” Before launching the application, Speed said:
“This game may already be scary. I’m scared to open this file, bro. This is illegal crypto, dark web s**t, bro. Illegal, crypto, dark web. Okay, bro. Let’s see.”
The PC’s operating system has notified the creator of its content that it may be opening a malicious file and the application may cause damage to its device. IShowSpeed didn’t care about the warning, as he said:
“At least I don’t care. I’m Speed, honey!” Warning, you have run a trojan known as Monoxide.exe. This has full capacity to delete all your data on your operating system. If you continue , keep in mind the creator will not be responsible for any damage caused by this Trojan. It is highly recommended…’ chat, they are trying to troll me. Ayyo chat, are they trying to troll me?”
After the streamer noticed the software’s latest warning, Darren replied:
“‘Are you sure you want to do this?’ We’re not punk! I’m not punk! They’re trying to troll me? Come on, bro! Tell me what you can do, baby. Final warning, bro, I’m not ab*tch, bro. Come on! I I’m done! Now what?”
A new pop-up window appeared stating that IShowSpeed had made a “terrible decision” and soon his PC started acting weird. The desktop started to glitch, which immediately startled the YouTuber. He questioned his decisions:
“Oh, f**k. No, no, no, no. What have I done, bro?”
IShowSpeed panicked as soon as loud music started playing. A few minutes later, he picked up his phone and called the police:
“I have to call the police, man! I have to call the police! I have to call the police! Oh my god! Oh wait. Are we okay? Wait, are we alright?”
After the police officer picked up the call, IshowSpeed explained his situation:
“Sir, I think my police did; I think my PC was hacked. My PC was hacked! My PC just got hacked, it just finished! My PC was hacked! Yes, my PC was hacked! My PC has been hacked, it has been hacked!”
