Path of Exile streamer Kostya ‘Mathil’ Khudoshin gave viewers quite a surprise for his Twitch stream on March 13 when he brought the famous ‘King Homer’ meme to life.

March 13 was also the first day for PoE’s new Delirium Challenge League, which adds even deeper customization for player’s builds with items called Cluster Jewels.

To celebrate the abundance of jewels in the new league – or maybe just as an excuse to break out the gold body paint – ‘Mathil’ decided to surprise viewers with an epic King Homer costume.

The jewel-encrusted meme comes from episode 19, season 3 of The Simpsons, when Springfield is “in the grip of lottery fever” and Homer is fantasizing about what he would do with his winnings.

Mathil started his stream off with an updated version of the clip for the new Delirium League before finally debuting his ridiculous cosplay.

Covered in gold body paint that made him resemble an extra from “Goldfinger,” the Australian greeted fans with his best King Homer laugh.

Of course, there were plenty of jewels glued to him, as well as a crown and some questionable golden pants to complete this ambitious look.

“I’ve become the notables and the cluster jewels themselves,” Mathil declared. “I did my best to jewel it up.”

After debuting his outfit, the streamer hopped right into Delirium, dutifully wearing the golden paint for the duration of the stream (he did have to lose the crown to fit his headphones on, though).

King Homer is far from the first cosplay Mathil has done on stream; he usually dons a ridiculous cosplay for each new Path of Exile League – and sometimes just for the heck of it.

The Delirium League is now live for Path of Exile players on PC, but those on Playstation 4 and Xbox One will have to wait until Monday, March 16 for the update to hit consoles.

However, whether Mathil will still be cosplaying King Homer at that time remains to be seen.

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.
