Popular streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazaris no stranger to momentary snafus, but the streamer had a hilarious mismatch between words and wear on his stream that sent his chat into roars of laughter.

Summit has enjoyed a successful life as a variety streamer, and is currently best known for heavily playing Sea of Thieves – but another reason viewers tune in lies in the streamer’s frequent comical blunders that has cemented the 1G as a meme.

The streamer had some downtime during his game when a viewer asked him if he enjoyed Overwatch, seeing as he was wearing a shirt with the game’s logo, and the summit had much to say.

BlizzardAmong Summit’s many critiques were the ease of use from some characters, particularly D.Va.

“I do not play Overwatch. I actually hate that fucking game. I just can’t stand it. I’m all for teamwork and shit, but you depend on teammates [in Overwatch] too much for my liking,” Summit said.

At that point his Twitch Chat exploded with crazed laughter at the irony of his comments, highlighted by the fact summit continued his critique of the game.

“And I just can’t stand the fucking shields, and shooting through your own teammates shields, D.Va being an easy fucking character to play,” summit continued. “I don’t know many, I just hate that game.”

When his chat finally made him privy of his gaffe he expertly tuned out the taunting, saying he’d happily run a red X across the logo to make it an anti-Overwatch apparel.

Like many people, the streamer must have just picked any old thing to wear that day, but it didn’t stop the the moment from being a classic summit entry to the longline of funny mistakes.

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.
