A Fortnite streamer has responded to accusations that he abused his dog during a stream, claiming that the dog was actually choking and needed his help.  

On September 6, a video surfaced of streamer ‘KryptixEliteTV’ taken from his broadcast from a day earlier. As he returned to his stream from a break, the dog can be seen laying on a couch in full view of the camera, with the streamer immediately moving towards his pet and grabbing it around the neck.

The video taken from his stream is low quality, however the dog was audibly distressed – crying as KryptixEliteTV remained close by. After the streamer told the dog to “stop,” he could be seen with his hands on its throat as the dog began to whimper even louder, before KryptixEliteTV threw an object away from the couch and pointed back at the dog. 

After the video went viral, with many across social media accusing the Fortnite player of abusing his pet, he responded on Twitter stating that the video had been taken the wrong way- claiming that the dog was choking, and he had stepped in to help.

“For the last time, the dog was choking on the inside of the pillow,” he tweeted. “Yes, I did grab her up and pull some stuffing out her mouth and told her no. But, after she was almost like gagging as if she was choking on some still. So, I grabbed her up again and put my hand in her throat.”

The streamer’s full response to the accusations.

The streamer also claimed that the dog was safe and that he was just helping, not hurting her as those who shared the video believed.

He added: “The dog is safe and I threw the pillow out. I just hate how everyone is making it seem like I was hurting instead of helping.”

Following his statement regarding the incident, KryptixEliteTV’s Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube were all removed from their respective platforms. His Twitch account also followed suit, but it’s unknown if he was banned because of the clip, or just taken it offline himself following the accusations. Dexerto have reached out to Twitch for clarification.

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
