Popular live streamer Steven “Destiny” Bonnell labelled YouTuber an host of H3H3 Ethan Klein a “predictable gamer bro” and ‘anti-SJW’ during a recent broadcast – after correctly predicting a tweet from Klein.
Destiny was previously a StarCraft II and League of Legends player, but now considered more of a ‘variety’ streamer, and one which controversy has followed over the years.
This is typically due to his outspoken nature, never afraid to state quite plainly his views on a person or topic, and this most recent episode has attracted a fair bit of attention within the community.
Klein, best known for ‘H3H3’, is one of the most influential figures in the online gaming and entertainment community, and is generally well regarded, as his is H3 podcast.
However, Destiny clearly has his differences with Klein, after a clip surfaced in which he firstly correctly predicts exactly what he would tweet in response to a media representation of Elon Musk.
Then, after being vindicated in his prediction, he calls Klein predictable and accuses him of espousing views which are widely accepted in order to receive kudos, presumably from his fans and community.
“H3H3 on Elon Musk? Oh, I don’t have to read it – I already know what it’s going to say.
They’re going to say: ‘Everyone is attacking Elon, but we’re on his side, the media is corrupt, I think he’s got a good point, I can’t wait for that company to come online.’
Yep, wow how am I so good? It’s almost like Ethan is a totally predictable gamer bro that does reactionary anti-SJW [Social Justice Warrior] commentary that falls in line with every other fucking…”
Klein does regularly Tweet on his personal account about what he believes to be injustices, particularly regarding media and reporting about prominent figures in the community.
He also recently spoke out against YouTube’s changes to subscription boxes, and attacks on YouTuber “MrBeastYT”.
Too many tabloids masquerading as journalists. Now when someone like Musk dares to speak up he’s condemned as a trumpesque anti-media tyrant. The real problem is traditional media is fighting for online clicks and have become accustomed to degrading themselves to sensationalism

Hmm, I wonder what could be dredged up about this reporter that should overshadow her entire life and achievements? Why act as if saying a few inappropriate things as a young man is equal to a career of philanthropy and good? You know it’s a stretch even as you wrote it. https://t.co/CZnlDWjJs6

But it seems as though Destiny is less than convinced by Klein’s stance on some of these issues.
