A Korean Twitch streamer has been banned after a violent altercation with another man during a livestream on September 27, leaving one of the men badly beaten.

Streaming on the Amazon-owned platform, the two men seemed friendly at first, although highly intoxicated.

The channel, Jangfolk1, has since been suspended from the website, but footage of the incident circulated widely before it was removed from the platform.

In the minutes leading up to the fight, the men laugh and joke together, and both appear to sign a piece of paper, which some Korean viewers have said was an agreement not to sue one another for the ensuing brawl.

The man in the blue shirt, believed to be the guest of the stream, is apparently mocking the man in the Twitch shirt for being a small streamer, and the pair agree to fight over the issue.

The first man slams the streamer into the desk, which breaks immediately under their weight, before the streamer manages to regain the upper hand.

In another, more violent clip, the man in the blue shirt is dragged by his hair and kicked and kneed to the head repeatedly by the man in the Twitch shirt.

The streamer got the upper hand eventually, kicking the other man’s head as he tried to block his face.

Eventually, the men grew tired and stopped, with the man in the blue shirt badly beaten, his face bloody and bruised.

They then sat back up at the desk together, revealing the extent of the inuries.

Police were apparently later called to the residence and the beaten man received medical attention, according to viewers of the stream.

The Twitch channel was quickly banned from the platform, and given the severity of the attack, it will likely be a permanent suspension. 

It’s unknown if charges were brought against either individual involved.

Twitch streamer Quin69’s viewers can literally flashbang him by donating

A Twitch streamer has found a way to let his viewers flashbang him in real life — and it looks absolutely hilarious.

As streaming grows, it becomes increasingly harder for aspiring creators to really stand out among their peers, and you’ll often see that some of the top streamers have something unique about them, or their stream, that keeps viewers coming back for more.

The best example of this is someone like Dr Disrespect, who adopts the Doc persona whenever he goes live and feeds into the character, offering fans something a little more unique.

So, to stand out among the crowd, you need something original — and Quin69 might have found the best solution.

Quin69 keeps up a spirited stream for his viewers, and this flashbang feature only adds to it.

While streamers often take donations from fans who are looking to show support, Quin has given his viewers a little something extra.

That’s because if you donate a certain amount to Quin’s stream, you hear the call of “throwing flashbang” before the room goes bright white, with Quin forced to close his eyes or squint through the flash if he wants to continue playing.

As you can see below, it doesn’t look like a massively enjoyable experience for the streamer, who has to sit through the pain; but it definitely looks amusing for the viewer.

He clearly tries to shrug it off and acts as though it doesn’t bother him, but we can only imagine how often his viewers flashbang him while in an intense moment of whatever game he’s playing which, truthfully, makes it all the more funny.

For a good example, here’s him being flashed while in a boss fight on Path of Exile, at the worst possible moment.

Of course, it’s all fun and games, and Quin wouldn’t have the option there if it truly bothered him, but we can only imagine how many games he loses momentum in thanks to temporary blindness.
