During Asmongold’s February 22 stream, he was reacting to The Game Theorists’ video regarding Twitch when he realized something familiar in the video. After noticing the chat in the upload was tagging him and talking about Reckful, he paused the video.
“Why am I getting tagged in this? Look at this? What the hell are they talking about me for,” he said. “He used my chat? I find it’s kind of in bad taste to use my chat on the day that Reckful died.
“He could have used any chat, why do that? It’s a bit much, man.”
