Twitch have handed out a ban to a streamer who publicly said he wanted to punch a female streamer in the face while he was broadcasting live.

The streamer, Viikzys, was scrolling through the Just Chatting section on Twitch and came across a female streamer named Kaylee, who was complaining about somebody “trying to talk shit to all egirls.”

Apparently this was enough to trigger Viikzys, who turned to his viewers and said “God dude I fucking hate this thot dude. She’s the type of person in fucking high school that I just want to punch in the fucking face, like honestly. I just want to fucking punch her in the goddamn face.”

This was brought to the attention of the masses by esports and gaming insider Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, who put this clip out on Twitter for everyone to see.

“This Twitch streamer Viikzys going around harassing women on the platform, saying he wants to punch them in the face,” Slasher tweeted. “Who hurt you dudes?

This caught the attention of Twitch, who proceeded to suspend Viikzys, after which he took to Twitter and began posting explanations and apologies about the situation.

“People always talk about titty streamers and all this shit and I agreed and I wanted to do something,” he tweeted. “I was approaching it the wrong way so I am at fault for that and I’m taking responsibility for some of the things I said, and I said things I shouldn’t have, so I apologize. 

However, according to the comments section of his tweets, not many people were willing to buy his apology, some feeling that he was only saying this things in order to get back into the good graces of Twitch and his viewers. 

It’s not clear how long Twitch have suspended Viikzys, but it is a good sign that the platform is taking strong initiative against those who spread around aggressive and hateful comments at other users.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
