A Twitch streamer with a racist username on Street Fighter V smashed his keyboard over his head, breaking it in half, and has now been banned from the site.

The clip of the streamer, who went by “PrimeableHD” on Twitch, quickly circulated on Reddit, resulting in his ban, with his very racist in-game username clearly visible.

Playing Street Fighter V, Primeable gets beaten in an online match, and cannot contain his anger as he yells expletives and eventually picks up his keyboard – snapping it in half with his forehead.

The original clip, along with his channel, has been taken down from Twitch, but you can watch it below, with his Street Fighter username visible in the top right.

Warning: Loud

Primeable’s Twitter account has also been suspended, although it is unknown whether this is related to his Twitch suspension.

Twitch has been increasingly punitive towards hateful behavior and language on stream, so it is reasonable to expect that the cause of his ban was the username, rather than the contents of the clip itself.

It is also possible that he has received a suspension for self-harm – by smashing the keyboard – but with such an offensive username, Twitch have surely taken action against it.

Primeable also streams on YouTube however, and his channel is currently still available on the site.

In fact, he multi-streams, so his broadcast is available on both Twitch and YouTube simultaneously, and the video is still up on his channel – including the keyboard smash moment.

You can watch the stream in full below, with the keyboard rage at the 1:33:25 minute mark. If YouTube is equally as strict against the username however, it may not be available much longer.

Popular Twitch streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ was left speechless after receiving 126 lbs of cranberry sauce in the mail from one of his viewers in a hilarious prank.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
