Tyler1 let loose on an incessant viewer after they spammed his chat to read a donation they had sent, even calling them a “loser” after they wouldn’t stop begging him to respond.
As one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, Tyler ‘tyler1‘ Steinkamp is used to receiving lots of donations from his tens of thousands of viewers, so many in fact that he often can’t respond to them all.
For smaller streamers, receiving a donation is often the highlight of their day, but once you reach the level of tyler1, with over 2.6 million followers on the platform, some seem to become almost a nuisance – especially with the sense of entitlement they can give the donator.
That’s not to say they aren’t appreciative at all, and even Tyler will take the time to thank any donations when he can, but he does have a history of lashing out at the more annoying fans.
Even when a viewer donated him a whopping $100, he called them a “dumbass” for giving it to someone who clearly didn’t need it.
When a viewer donated $5 on his October 29 stream though, and then proceeded to spam the chat with “WHY MY DONO NOT SHOWING” repeatedly, Steinkamp had had enough, telling him to: “Shut the f**k up.”
“I’ve been live for ten minutes, and it’s just been autism!” Tyler1 exclaimed, before launching into a tirade against the incessant donator. “Kid, I’ll read your donation when it’s time! You hear me?! You’re a c**k loser anyway, you’ve donated to somebody who makes more than your parents combined! Just shut up and wait!”
He then eventually did read the donation message, mocking that too. “He didn’t even send a good message, here’s what he said: ‘t1, please don’t leave for Mixer like all my other favorite streamers, frown.”
Judging from the message, it seems the donator was genuinely looking for a response from Tyler, and when he didn’t get noticed, chose to simply spam the chat instead.
The streamer then said that was the ‘second strike’ for him that day, and with one more he would “call it a day”, and then quickly timed out the user in a “pre-emptive” move, to prevent any more spamming.
