Twitch streamer ‘nweatherservice’ was in the middle of a game of Overwatch when she was teamed up with a toxic male player, who quickly turned to insults after being turned down by the streamer.
“So… me and you?” the teammate asked, as if insinuating that the two would “hook up.”
However, ‘nweatherservice’ wasn’t down with his proposition, and promptly denied his request, saying, “I’m good. I’ll pass.”
Her teammate apparently didn’t care to take no for an answer, replying with a vicious insult: “You sound fat, anyways.”
That wasn’t the end of his tirade, by far: he went on to ask the streamer how much she weighed, much to the apparent embarrassment of another teammate on voice chat.
“How much do you weigh?” he asked.
“Oh my god, dude,” the third teammate interrupted. “Let’s just drop this and play the game.”
‘Nweatherservice’ wasn’t just going to “drop” the abuse, though, and returned his insults in kind, replying with, “How many kills have you gotten? Oh, wait.”
Despite her brilliant comeback, the player continued to harass her – which led to a sick burn from another female player on their team.
“How many kills do you have?” the toxic player asked.
“Dude, if you could, for like three f*cking seconds, shut the f*ck up,” the other, female player replied.
“You sound fat as f*ck, too,” the player retorted.
“Yeah, dude, I’m f*ckin’ huge.”
“None of you are as fat as me, though,” another male player interjected. “I think I’m the fattest one out of all of us.”
In spite of the blatant abuse she suffered on stream, ‘nweatherservice’ explained that she merely has to “mute, report, and move on” from such harassment.
“Btw, I am the streamer,” she said in a Reddit thread documenting the interaction. “Hello. Just have to mute, report and move on.”
Many commenters came out in support of the streamer’s reaction to her toxic teammate, and, while harassment runs rampant in many online communities, the encouragement ‘nweatherservice’ received shines a positive light on an otherwise bleary debacle.
