Streamer Jaryd “Summit1G” Lazar has a very famous history of dying to molotovs in video games, and even when playing Last of Us was not safe from his curse.

Summit1G’s death by self-inflicted and avoidable molotov damage is know so well known in gaming circles that it is actually called a ‘1G’ whenever any other streamer or professional player suffers the same fate.

The origins of the now popular joke, which has become a meme of sorts, dates way back to Summit’s playing career as a semi-professional Counter-Strike player.

Molotovs are particularly deadly in CS:GO, and Summit is certainly not the first to have died at the hands fireball inadvertently – but it was the manner in which he did that made it catch on.

During the DreamHack Austin Open in 2016, Summit’s Splyce team were on map point against CLG, and after killing the final opponent all he had left to do was defuse the bomb to win the map.

But as he approached the bomb site, he failed to notice the fire right in front of him, walking directly through it and dying. His team went on to lose the map and the series.

Despite no longer playing professional CS, his curse still seems to follow him as a full time streamer, with his latest episode coming on critically acclaimed ‘The Last of Us’.

Summit’s stream chat immediately lit up, spamming his ‘sumMolly’ emote, a subscriber emote made in homage to his apparent complete inability to be safe around molotovs in games.

If you have never seen the original and best ‘1G’ moment, you are in for a treat.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
