Popular Twitch streamer and Team SoloMid memebr Daequan Loco had a few words for Reddit trolls during one of his broadcasts.

Daequan was spectating Week Three of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish when he broke out into an impression of Reddit’s notoriously toxic community, poking fun at users who criticize Fortnite’s top players on the platform.

“Reddit gonna be over there like, ‘Myth only got 20th place,’” he said in a nasal, mocking tone.

He took labored breaths while tapping away on his desktop like a faux keyboard. “He must be doo-doo,” he continued. “Meanwhile, I’m typing on Reddit for 400,000 hours of my life and I haven’t gotten paid one cent. I’m gonna hate on everybody who’s not in the Skirmish now.”

Daquan added to the humor by shifting the camera to a close-up of his face, making an impression of the stereotypical ‘nerdy’ laugh often seen in comedies.

However, he didn’t go without making a more direct statement towards the haters. “Like, get outta here dude,” he said. “Fuck outta my face.”

He went on to make further comments regarding the haters, insinuating that they spend every minute of their lives posting on the website – even going so far to say that they put their phones in Ziploc bags to post while in the shower.

“They just wait for shit to happen, bro,” he said.

Friday’s Fortnite action saw Sen’s Aspect and Envy’s Lenain take first place in the American Fall Skirmish standings with 16 points each, with free agent Psalm and Ghost’s Bizzle just behind in second place with 13 points apiece.

Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
