Streaming star Jeremy ‘Disguised Toast’ Wang has been acclimating to his new platform since moving to Facebook Gaming – and he’s already been finding cool tricks to deal with trolls exclusive to the social network.
For a long time, Twitch has been the top platform for streamers to start out their live broadcasting careers. But rival sites like Facebook Gaming and Mixer have been sweeping up big streamers like Toast, Ninja, shroud, and more to instantly nab larger active accounts.
With different platforms come different advantages as well as new tools for streamers to make use of, and Toast had fun with one of Facebook’s primary features.
Toast made a guest appearance on LilyPichu’s Twitch stream, and while talking to his fellow OfflineTV member, Toast retold how he instantly shut down someone being mean in his chat.
“You know someone was mean to me today,” Toast explained to Lily. “I said, ‘Wow that’s a dumb comment, Bob Taylor.’”

Things must have been a bit surreal for Mr. Taylor at that moment during Toast’s stream. Usually, the anonymity of the internet gives people the courage they need to be toxic, but things play a bit differently on Facebook.
Since people generally surf through Facebook’s services with their primary account, it's usually the login which prominently features their real names.
“I read out his entire name and he didn’t say shit after that,” Toast said.
Even when he was first building up his Twitch following, the streamer had a funny way of dealing with the platform’s many problematic members – it's apparently way easier to do on Facebook.
Lily must have caught on to that, since even she was thinking of ways that she could see her friend hit back if a troll ever got too snippy during a stream.
“I feel like you’re the type of person to go to their name and message their mom and be like ‘your son said I look like trash at this time. I just want you to know,’” she said.
It’s unknown if he would do something like that, but Facebook Gaming trolls should be careful to not burn Toast during his streams.
