Cohh Carnage slams “lame” ad using his family photo without permission

Twitch streamers take opportunities to advertise products to their audiences all the time, but lines are crossed when their likeness gets used with permission, and that’s exactly what happened to Cohh Carnage.

Cohh Carnage is one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, boasting 1.2 million followers and attracting thousands of viewers each time he goes live.

Unfortunately, with such levels of popularity, there is a risk of individuals or companies misusing a streamer’s content.

CohhCarnage - TwitchCohh is one of the biggest variety streamers on Twitch, and a veteran of the platform.

A blog that focuses on tips for lowering credit card debt, among other financial advice, appears to have used Cohh’s baby announcement as a way to advertise their article.

To make things even worse, the site erased the message about his family’s son and replaced it with a message about becoming debt-free, as though Carnage himself had written it.

“Somebody sat down, erased the message on this sign that said we were having our second son, Kai, then put in some fake advertisement for their blog or whatever,” he tweeted. “All, of course, without consent or permission. I tell ya, man. Dark times. How lame can people be.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this happen, with similar incidents with other streamers in the past.

Back in November 2019, the online retailer Newegg ran an ad for a chair that featured a streamer who looked a lot like Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, except that it wasn’t an exact match.

Unless noticed by a fan, these ads can easily slip under the radar and to many unsuspecting people, they won’t even realize or consider who is in the images.

OP Group, Cohh’s management team, said this sort of thing happens all too often and that they are in the process of handling it.

While this might not seem like too big of a deal on the surface, it can end up being very damaging.

A fan could see this ad, believe that Cohh himself believes in it, and be misled into clicking the link, and possibly paying for a product or service.

It sounds like this particular situation is going to be taken care of shortly, but that doesn’t mean it won’t pop up again with a different streamer in the future.

Rapper turned popular Twitch streamer Soulja Boy went on a hilarious rant-like victory speech after he dominated the opposition in a match of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

After loading into the Crossroads map for a little free for all action, the rapper took no prisoners, destroying the other members of the lobby with ease.

By the time Soulja landed the final kill bringing his score to 30, the player back in second place had a mere 22 making the streamer’s performance even crazier.

Soulja himself was over the moon with his play and boasted his insane skills in an epic speech where he shouted at the top of his lungs.

Soulja Boy was hyped after winning the round.

“Let’s f**king go! I’m in beast mode! I’m at f**king beast mode!” he screamed in glory. “Stop playin’ with me! That’s what I do! When I get in that mode!”

As the 30-year-old continued his hyped speech, the “Best Play” was being shown in the background documenting the streamer’s series of frags.

Throughout the clip, Soulja manages to pick up three kills in quick succession padding his lead. Amusingly, some in his chat thought that the game was too dominant and he was playing against AI.

“Of course when a [person] winning they’re going to say it’s bots!” he smirked. “I’m so motherf***ing raw I make these [people] look like bots! Look up them Gamer Tags and DM then and ask them if they’re bots!”

Needless to say, Soulja Boy’s confidence was really something else and being able to back up the trash talk with big wins just makes it so much sweeter.

Of course, if you want, you can use Soulja’s loadout in your own games and see if it makes you pop off as hard as him. For his primary weapon, he opts for the MP5 with the Duckbill Choke, Millstop Reflex, +22 extended, 6RND Tube and Steady Aim Laser.

Soulja Boy was making opponents look like bots from the campaign.

His secondary is the Hauer 77. For equipment, he opts for stuns, semtex, and proximity mine. Finally, for perks and Wildcard he uses Paranoia, Gearhead and Ghost equipped with Danger Close.

Give it a shot and see if you can get on Soulja Boy’s level.
