Twitch streamer SoaR Mala was midway through a game of Apex Legends when disaster struck involving his glass desk. 

As a content creator for SoaR Gaming, Mala is an FPS gamer who mostly prioritizes games like Apex Legends and Counter-Strike


He was playing the popular battle royale during a September 5 livestream, and doing quite well to boot, when complete chaos unfolded before his and all of the viewers’ very eyes.

Mala - TwitchMala’s reaction says it all.

Seemingly out of nowhere, one of the monitors in his setup crashed down and completely shattered the glass desk below. 


When his teammates asked what just happened, in a state of total shock and mouth agape, Mala replied by saying “bro my desk just cracked, my whole entire desk just cracked.”

Sharing pictures on Twitter, he showed how the entire setup was impacted by the unfortunate event, as well as some blood on the wall from the thousand shards of glass that exploded all over the room. 

“Getting a glass desk probably wasn’t my best decision #RIPmysetup2019,” he tweeted. “The aftermath (yes that’s blood on the wall)”


Once the shock of the situation wore off, many began theorizing on Reddit as to how the freak accident could have occurred.

User ‘Zakkimatsu’ chimed in, suggesting that the “heat from the PC” combined with the effects of the air conditioning “freezing the room,” is what could have caused the accident. 

Conversely, user ‘5minutelettuce’ argues that “the boom arm was clamped too tightly on the desk and the desk eventually gave way with the tension of it leaning over for so long.”


Whatever the cause may have been, this should serve as a safety warning to anyone out there gaming on a glass desk right now. 

You definitely don’t want to be featured in the next viral clip if the same unfortunate tragedy happens to you.


PewDiePie defends Elon Musk after backlash for Tesla price change meme

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie Kjellberg defended Elon Musk during his October 18 upload. The Swedish star hit out at those getting upset over the Tesla CEO’s viral meme about changing the price of the Model S.

The one thing PewDiePie and Elon Musk have in common is their love of memes. The YouTube star even had the tech giant host an episode of his popular Meme Review show back in 2019 that has over 26 million views. 


The Tesla CEO faced backlash from critics in October after tweeting that the Model S price was being changed to $69,420. The YouTuber defended the billionaire during his latest upload, and argued that people can’t take a joke.

PewDiePie defends Elon Musk’s Model S meme

During his October 18 episode of Last Week I Asked You, Pewds addressed the criticism Elon Musk received from some over a tweet he made on October 14 about the Model S price change. 


“I saw some people being so butthurt over this. It’s like, dude, it’s just a joke. I’m sure Elon knows it’s ironic,” he said, before he jokingly imitated critics in a baby voice. “So childish, he’s like a 12-year old! … Yeah, that’s the joke! Ever hear of fun?”

The creator then applauded the CEO for being attuned to meme culture: “You just want another overweight, gray-haired, boomer billionaire? I don’t. I think we have enough of that!”

The tweet that PewDiePie was referencing was made on October 14 when Musk posted, “The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled. Model S price changes to $69,420 tonight!”


The joke exploded on the social media platform, instantly going viral with over 330k likes and 35k retweets. While many found the meme to be hilarious, some critics hit out at the CEO for being irresponsible with the company’s prices.

This isn’t the only time PewDiePie has defended Elon. In past uploads, the 30-year-old has admitted to viewers that he’s admired the tech CEO for his innovations while still being wired into internet culture.

With Kjellberg being so fond of the tech giant, maybe the Tesla owner will someday return as a guest host on Meme Review. Maybe the Swede could also convince the billionaire to show up for a round of Among Us – now that would be entertainment gold.
