PashaBiceps puzzled after Siri interrupts stream with hilarious request

Legendary Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional Jarosław ‘pashaBiceps’ Jarząbkowski was left stunned when his iPhone’s Siri tried to strike up a conversation with him.

Former Virtus.Pro star pashaBiceps may not have yet been able to translate his CS:GO legend status into Twitch stardom like Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, but that hasn’t dissuaded him from booting up the livestream and entertaining his fans.

Unlike his former fellow pro, pasha can usually just be found playing the game that made him an esports legend for a thousands of viewers. They tune into watch his entertaining antics, as well as his crisp aim, but sometimes that all gets interrupted when his iPhone decides it wants to make a name for itself and appear on stream.

ESL/Helena KristianssonThe former CS:GO Major winner has always been one of the top personalities in the scene.

The technological mishap happened during Pasha’s July 26 stream when he was chatting with viewers during a break in one of his Faceit Pro League matches. Speaking aloud, the former Virtus.Pro star asked “He serious or he like trolling?” while waiting for one player to return and start the game after the other players had gone through a prolonged pause.

Despite not actively trying to provoke Siri, the Polish rifler quickly got a response from his phone’s voice assistant, which misheard what he had said, thinking he had asked about fallic drawings.

“Ok, I found this on the web for what is a penis-like drawing?’ Check it out,” replied the voice, leaving Pasha stunned.

“What? Siri?” he asked, still with a shocked look upon his face. “I don’t get it – why Siri want to talk to Papa? Hmm, my phone was locked.”

Thankfully for the former CS:GO Major winner, he was able to shake off the bizarre moment and switch right on to focus on his FPL game.

Yet, it might just put him off buying an Amazon Echo or Google Home, as he probably won’t want anymore surprise conversations with technology moving forward.

S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
