TSM’s Daequan Loco nearly gave his teammate Ali “Myth” Kabbani a stone cold knockout, thanks to his antics during a heated session of a VR boxing game.

Fans of Daequan and Myth know the pair for their hilarious shenanigans, who are both under Team SoloMid as Fortnite streamers and content creators.

While the two are best known for their Fortnite streams, the two also delve into a variety of other games during their broadcasts – one of which, for Daequan, was a virtual reality boxing title called “Thrill of the Fight.”

tsm_daequan, InstagramTSM’s Daequan is a popular Fortnite streamer, known for his humorous on-camera antics.

Daequan, who recently announced big plans for 2020 in wake of a sporadic year of content creation, donned his Oculus Rift headset and stepped into the digital ring, throwing jabs left and right in an attempt to down his virtual opponent.

However, it was during his game that Myth snuck into Daequan’s room, jokingly poking fun at his roommate by pretending to face off with him in front of the camera – all while Daequan was stuck inside the game.

With Daequan unable to see Myth directly in front of him, he continued to whale away at his opponent, and nearly caught his housemate with a right hook in the process, who almost tumbled over the side of his bed after being knocked off balance by the near-blow.

Myth’s shocked expression paints a clear picture that he narrowly avoided catching an actual punch to the face – a fact that Daequan didn’t realize until a full day later.

“I almost knocked out Myth IRL,” he wrote, publishing a clip from his stream to Twitter that Myth promptly retweeted.

Daequan’s return to Twitch streaming follows his heartfelt announcement a few days prior, where he opened up about the loss of family members and friends in his life, as well as dealing with health issues, which hampered his ability to stream.

Now, the content creator is looking forward to a successful 2020 – although we hope he doesn’t end up knocking out any of his teammates, in the interim.

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.
