TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani and YouTuber Bryan 'RiceGum' Le traded verbal blows after RiceGum called out Myth for his viewership numbers on Twitch.
The pair were streaming Fortnite at the same time on Thursday, December 20, when RiceGum, who has swapped streaming on YouTube for Twitch, took shots at Myth for having a higher number of viewers than his fellow streamer.
That, however, did not go over well with Myth who clapped back and threatened RiceGum. The TSM streamer added that he wouldn't be against calling up his TSM teammates for back-up if the beef escalated.
RiceGum got things started when he said: “NickMercs got 20 [thousand viewers], Daequan got 20 and you got me right here. I got more views than Myth! Myth used to talk shit on me bro. Stop playing with me fool, I’m on your platform now.”
However, it didn’t take long for Myth to respond and threaten the YouTuber turned streamer for his comments. “Listen man, real talk bro, if Rice wants to talk shit imma call Dax, got him on the line dog,” Myth responded.
“Watch your fucking mouth Rice. Nah, I’m just kidding. I do got Dax on the line bro. If he wants to get torn apart again in a rap battle, Rice needs to back off buddy.”
Whilst Myth did he say he was only kidding, he continued to talk about RiceGum on stream, further escalating his apparent threats.
“Rice, I will still talk shit about you buddy. You could have a hundred thousand times the amount of viewers I have brother,” Myth said after being linked a clip of what RiceGum said by his chat.
“Listen chat, I’ll call Hamz, I’ll call Dae, I’ll call Dax. Bro, he don’t want it man. Plain and simple, that’s all I gotta say. That’s too much heat! He really don’t want it. Fake ass gameplay looking ass.”
Myth finished off by challenging RiceGum to a game of Fortnite, telling his stream: "Somebody tell RiceGum to 1v1 me on Playground. Come 1v1 me on Playground. Tell him he's got to get that little midget out from under this desk too, I know he holds the controller, I know he plays those games," insinuating that Le doesn't actually play Fortnite himself.
RiceGum has yet to respond to Myth's challenge, but we'll be sure to keep you updated as new information becomes available.
