Jeremy Albertson has been charged with six murders after allowing his viewers to decide whether to hit the brakes while driving. Jeremy Elbertson, better known online as Jerma985, was arrested by Boston police after he killed six people during a weird, avant-garde webcast in which he allowed chat users to determine whether or not his car could stop.
Jerma985 is probably one of Twitch’s biggest success stories. Jerma gained several YouTube followers before moving to live streaming, which increased the number significantly. He was a pioneer of absurdist comedy, which he continues in his broadcasts. Here’s everything you need to know about Jerma.
What happened to Jeremy Elbertson?
According to the Boston Police Department, one of their targets was the infamous Twitch inventor. Jerma started at the beginning of the broadcast, greeting everyone and announcing that instead of playing Breath of the Wild, he would try his luck flying down the highway at 90 mph.
After a short pause, he continued by stating that spectators should be allowed to vote. He also revealed that each contribution would increase his speed, and any Prime memberships would cause him to temporarily swerve for oncoming traffic. If he lives, he’ll probably just end the show with some Gang Beasts or something.
Is Jeremy Elbertson in prison? What exactly did the Youtuber do?
Jeremy Elbertson was apprehended by Boston police after he killed six people. According to BPD spokesman David Pryce, they took Mr Elbertson’s car off the road and detained him at Fifth and Turner last night. He went on to say that they were able to track Jerma’s whereabouts in real time thanks to his live stream and that enough officers had signed up and voted for Jerma to stop driving and surrender to police.
Legal experts indicated that they did not like Jerma’s prospects of being released at the time of publication after fellow streamer STAR was chosen by Twitch Chat to act as Jerma’s legal counsel.
Response from a Twitch moderator to Jeremy Elbertson’s stream
Twitch moderator Kevin Foxx said it was nice to see a streamer so interested in connecting to their chat in such a way. It was a refreshing change of pace, as according to him, most people couldn’t even respond to questions in the chat, let alone play God for God.
Jerma’s production value was excellent as always. He bought a huge SUV especially for this broadcast to ensure that affected pedestrians would not survive if the community did not want them to. Also as a streamer he is very focused and concentrated. If someone died, he would stare indifferently at the road ahead, waiting for the next conversation instruction without considering the consequences.
