Massive streamer Steven “Destiny” Bonnell shared his thoughts on Trump voters during one of his Twitch broadcasts.
Destiny's Twitch streams delve into gaming and political discussion alike. Following one of these conversations in a Path of Exile and debate stream, Destiny received a message in his chat that inspired a rant about those who voted for Trump in the 2016 election. The message accused Destiny of twisting a discussion to fit his narrative.
“I personally like how you reduced the Podesta email leaks into a straw-man about pizzagate, when there was so much more dirt in them. Trump won, because everyone saw what was in those emails… it’s that simple.”
Destiny responded in kind, explaining that the commenter had voted for his own tax breaks and healthcare in voting for Trump.
“Aw, dude, I’m so glad you fuckin’ voted for Trump… I’m fine, dude. Because you voted for Trump, I don’t have to pay for healthcare next year… I don’t have to pay a tax burden on it. I can continue to hide money through my business. You’re making me richer, dog. I am getting wealthy off of your ignorance.”
Destiny also stated that the commenter’s job was more likely to be endangered, as well as saying that they had to have a “sub-ninety IQ” because they were “dumb enough to vote for Trump.”
Destiny’s language and content have garnered him flack throughout the gaming community, resulting in multiple bans from Twitch and a suspension from Twitter. He continues to stream on Twitch and create YouTube videos, where he showcases his debates and gaming achievements alike.
