Disguised Toast completely shuts down troll thanks to Facebook Gaming

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.

FacebookToast moved to Facebook Gaming, continuing the trend of streamers moving on from Twitch.

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.

xQc explains why his 7-day Twitch ban was actually a good thing

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel finally returned to streaming after receiving a massive seven-day ban for his role in a Fall Guys Twitch Rivals stream sniping controversy. However, according to the French Canadian, the ban was actually good for him.

xQc’s return to Twitch was met with some huge numbers, with over 100,000 viewers packed into his chat.

With such a massive audience, Lengyel explained how, while he expected to be criticized for his actions, he was shocked at how some folks didn’t want him to improve or get better.

“Seeing people not wanting you to move or not wanting you to go past the hurdles, it’s almost like they’re living through you,” he explained. “There’s a lot of them.”

xQc’s return stream was pulling in huge numbers.

According to the former Overwatch League pro, even after he apologized for his actions, some people were still attacking him for silly reasons.

“‘Oh no, not good enough of an apology, I hope you get perma-banned,’” he paraphrased of his haters. “I hope nobody gets perma-banned and there are people I really dislike in the content creator space, and I wouldn’t want them to get perma-banned.”

His reasoning for this is because he believes people can come back and do better. But he also addressed people claiming that Twitch was using him as an example.

“I don’t think bigger streamers get preferential treatment. And I think that was a good showcase of it,” he added. “I think, out of all the other instances, I think that was a good showcase of me not getting preferential treatment. If anything, I got the full juicer. Seven-day whole thing and I got clapped.”

Twitch has often been accused of giving some larger streamers better treatment than others on the platform, so this was a refreshing revelation from the Laval-born Lengyel.

“Even if, let’s say, I was being used as an example, and they put me out there as an example of doing a bad thing, that’s fine,” he continued. “That’s fine because when we come back, I can also be an example of doing better.”

Hopefully, xQc can make good on this challenge to himself and actually become better, just as suggested.
