Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has one of the most recognizable voices on Twitch, making him a ripe target for impersonations among the community.
While many attempt to imitate the streamer, who is best known for his League of Legends broadcasts, it seems none of them are very good - at least, that’s what Tyler1 thinks.
On Monday, January 14, fellow streamer Mizkif shaved his eyebrows and hair off after huge donations in his chat demanded he do it.
With his hair gone, many of his viewers felt that Mizkif looked a lot like Steinkamp, and asked him to pretend to be the streamer, with Mizkif breaking out a pretty good impression of Tyler1 which his chat enjoyed immensely.
With many agreeing that Mizkif’s imitation was almost perfect, the Steinkamp decided to watch the video with his chat, and was less than happy with what he heard.
“I don’t sound like that. I do not sound, act or look like that. This impersonation is not even fucking close. Maybe fucking next time dude,” Tyler1 told his chat, before purposefully speaking in a lower register to change the sound of his voice. “I don’t sound like that.”
Steinkamp and former Overwatch pro Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel also got into a war of words this week, with xQc taking offense to Tyler1 referring to him as a “normie.”
Lengyel couldn’t believe what the streamer had said, responding by telling his own stream: “Motherfucker drinks water out of his little sippy cup and his booster seat. Shit is unbelievable.”
