Popular Twitch streamer Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein has questioned the intentions of other streamers, and called them out for what he perceives to be a lack of humility.
The American became agitated with members of his Twitch chat while streaming World of Warcraft, prompting him to make the comments.
“I don’t care,” declared Bernstein. “I stream for fun. If you guys are going to be assholes, I’m going to ban you all.”
Reckful then took aim at his fellow streamers on the platform, stating: “I don’t stream for money like every other streamer you watch who’s gonna suck your dick the whole time.
“I’ve talked to every other streamer off-stream, the only reason they stream is to make money, I promise you. They hate it. And you guys think you’re their friends? They’re not your fucking friends.“
The former professional WoW player continued taking shots at other Twitch streamers, telling his audience: “None of the people you actually watch are humble. They pretend to be humble because that’s what people like. That way, they get more money and more viewers.”
Bernstein remarked that he doesn’t care if he gets banned from Twitch for his outbursts. Recently, there were calls for Reckful to be banned from the site after comments he made on stream where he threatened to hire people to kill members of his chat.
