“[I’ve made it] very lucrative for myself. I grew up playing games like Final Fantasy 7, Mortal Kombat,” he said before Mandii mentioned she likes Mortal Kombat. “Name one Mortal Kombat character,” Khleo asked before not getting an answer from the host.

“As an adult the goings on of ppl shouldn’t bother you this much,” one user replied.

Another commented: “So many people have this view, it’s like a weird form of superiority complex. ‘I’m more mature because I don’t play games’.”

“If the men want to play video games let them,” a third user said.

Many others, however, were more focused on the fact Khleo Thomas was a part of the clip with many of them not realizing he was still active on the internet.
