With CS:GO stream on July 13, thanks to a classic mechanic in the game.

For those unfamiliar with the title, typing the words “quit smoking” into the console prompts an unexpected result: the command will force the game to close, thanks to the word “quit.”

However, pairing the term “quit” with another phrase, such as “quit smoking,” for instance, may render the command relatively harmless in the eyes of uninitiated players, resulting in some hilarious moments for those who get tricked into closing their own game.

Erobb was one such player, who unfortunately input the command into the console at the behest of his chat – leading to an unexpected reaction from the usually over-the-top streamer.

A classic CS:GO prank baits players into quitting the game by typing “quit smoking” into the console, effectively closing the window by use of the word “quit.”

Despite slamming his desk out of rage upon being eliminated just beforehand, after typing the words “quit smoking” into the console, Erobb simply sat in silence for a few moments, as if stunned that he’d been tricked by the simple prank.

“You guys are so stupid,” he finally said, sitting back in his chair in defeat.

Erobb isn’t the first streamer to have been tricked into quitting their game by their own chat, either: massively popular makeup mogul James Charles was similarly baited closing his game window, after his chat begged him to press the Alt + F4 keys simultaneously.

While his first encounter with Twitch trolls saw him end his stream prematurely, this time, Charles took the prank in stride, laughingly shouting, “Okay, f*ck whoever just did that, that is not funny!”

Although Erobb wasn’t amused by the practical joke, the trolling served as a hilarious lesson for the streamer, who isn’t likely to fall for another “quit” phrase in the near future.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
