Summit1g slams “dipshit” trolls after donator makes vile ‘joke’

Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar hit out at a troll donator on his June 28 stream, explaining that such individuals, who sit guarded behind their computer screens, can have a deep, negative impact on the internet stars of today.

Summit’s comments come only days after the tragic death of YouTuber and streamer Desmond Daniel ‘Etika’ Amofah, who took his own life at the age of 29 on June 19.

Months of very public breakdowns and mental health problems prior to his suicide left many asking why more wasn’t done to help, when the signs were clear to see, and, as summit1g argues, there is blame to be placed with the many online trolls who target not only Etika, but all online figures.

Summit1g took aim after a Twitch viewer ‘joked’ about Etika’s tragic passing.

After a particularly disrespectful donation came in from a user aptly named ‘offensivejoke’, mocking Etika’s passing, summit quickly banned them, before explaining to his viewers why a single comment like that was part of a bigger problem.

“I wouldn’t even call that a joke. I would say that you are one of the people who failed him [Etika],” Lazar stated, recommending his viewers read Richard Lewis’ sobering account of how the internet failed Etika.

“The internet is a huge, huge reason for this even happening,” the streamer continued, “It’s real sad, that dipshits like you take things for granted behind your fucking computer screen because you think you’re safe, because nobody knows who you are.”

“You shit on others who put themselves out there, we’re the ones sitting out here talking, and you just sit there in your dumbass basement,” summit concluded, telling the troll “you are the reason my friend.”

As a veteran of streaming, summit1g has undoubtedly experienced more than his fair share of hate, trolls, and negativity from a small minority of ‘fans’.

While he has millions of loyal and supportive fans too, it is often the negative minority who are loudest. Although summit is rarely one to complain about ‘haters’, the passing of Etika will have prompted a realization among many popular online figures that it’s important to be wary of negative influences and how they can affect their mental wellbeing.

Nessa Barrett has been accused of throwing Mads Lewis some shade after hiding comments from fans on Twitter suggesting the two collaborate, but the TikTok star has hit back and claimed nothing was shady about it at all.

Nessa Barrett and Mads Lewis were inseparable once upon a time. The two of them were an unstoppable force, with millions of fans between them across Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

Unfortunately, it seems like their friendship came to a bitter end after Nessa Barrett stopped following Mads Lewis on social media and deleted the many pictures she had of them posing together.

However, Mads is still following Nessa on Instagram and hasn’t taken down their pictures together, which had led to their fans and followers believing the bitterness is one-sided. Some have even speculated that their falling out might tie into the drama between Nessa and Chase Hudson.

Either way, it seems like something happened between them. Now, Nessa Barrett has been accused of adding more fuel to the fire after many claimed she shaded her ex-best friend once again.

Did Nessa Barrett shade Mads Lewis on Twitter?

Nessa Barrett posted a harmless Tweet stating, “Feature ideas for a song or just curious.” However, many of her followers weren’t sure what she meant and chimed in with countless collaboration suggestions.

A portion of them rummaged through a list of replies she had hidden and discovered Mads Lewis was a common denominator. “Pleasure feature Avani or Mads or Josh,” wrote one fan. “MADS,” and “Madison Lewis,” wrote two others.

Some of them found it a little odd and claimed it was another example of her throwing Mads Lewis some shade.

This prompted Nessa Barrett to respond, saying, “A lot of [people] didn’t know what I meant and were commenting song ideas to my tweet so I liked the first one that I saw was actually giving me feature ideas,” she said.

 “Nothing [about] this was supposed to be shady,” she added. “I just liked the first one that I saw.”

Needless to say, the situation and her response sparked a bit of division on social media.

Some believe there is unquestionable truth in her words, and the whole situation has been blown way out of proportion.

Others claim it’s pretty clear Nessa Barrett wasn’t keen on seeing Mads Lewis name in the suggestions, so she filtered them out.

Either way, it seems like the falling out is still fresh, and they won’t be mending their friendship anytime soon. However, time heals all wounds, and many mutual fans would love to see them reunited once again down the track.
