Valorant streamer smashes keyboard after rage-inducing timer glitch

Twitch streamer Skean was so enraged over a glitch in his Valorant match that he took his frustration out on his keyboard, absolutely shattering the helpless computer peripheral.

During a May 5 broadcast, Skean’s team found themselves down 10-5 with time ticking down and the streamer in a two-on-one disadvantage.

Needing to plant the Spike, the streamer headed towards B in an attempt to clutch the round out, but somehow, time expired before he could even fully place it. It wouldn’t matter anyway as the streamer fell victim to a headshot, but he still noticed the clock acting strangely.

A clock issue may have resulted in a lost round.

In the clip, the timer goes from around 5 seconds down to 3.30 – something Skean noticed and immediately started complaining about.

“I swear I saw it at 4.8 and then it switched to like 3.6!” the streamer claimed.

“Welcome to Earth where your time is very limited,” one of his teammates suggested, while another theorized he was lagging.

For Skean, however, something seemed seriously wrong with the in-game clock. “That timer isn’t okay!” he blasted. “That clock isn’t okay. One-hundred percent something is wrong with that clock.”

The annoyance seemed to carry over into the next round as mere seconds into the attack, the Twitch streamer fell victim to a spray of body shots, prompting the man to pound his keyboard into oblivion.

After hammering it several times with a closed fist, the angry streamer swore loudly, aggravated by the outcome of the match.

As the rest of Skean’s teammates fell, the streamer had no choice but to pick up the keys, which were now scattered across his room to repair the battered keyboard.

This isn’t the first time Skean has destroyed his keyboard either. As Dexerto previously reported, the streamer got incredibly tilted while playing Apex Legends and lashed out on the device.

With so much smashing, one has to wonder when the streamer will have no choice but to get a new keyboard.

Notorious TikTok vegan That Vegan Teacher has created a video response after being banned on the platform for allegedly violating several community guidelines.

That Vegan Teacher, real name Kadie Karen Diekmeyer, has clocked up around 1.5m followers on the app and is known for her very firm vegan beliefs, which she frequently preaches on the app.

She’s also had several run-ins with other top names — including, notably, Minecraft sensation 16-year-old TommyInnit, whose fans bombarded her with hate comments after she suggested someone help him feel more comfortable around girls.

Now, after rumors that she had been arrested in January 2021 (which was proven false), she seems to have been banned from the app altogether.

Why was That Vegan Teacher banned on TikTok?

At the time of writing, there’s no clear explanation as to why That Vegan Teacher has been banned on TikTok, with neither her nor TikTok coming out with an explanation.

While the reason hasn’t been confirmed, a disclaimer on her TikTok profile suggests it’s due to multiple Community Guidelines violations.

This could be any number of things, so it’s impossible to speculate on what exactly the violations could be, and we’ll have to wait for official confirmation before reporting it. According to TikTok’s guidelines though, her misdemeanor could fall under any of these categories:

  • Violent extremism
  • Hateful behavior
  • Illegal activities and regulated goods
  • Violent and graphic content
  • Suicide, self harm and dangerous acts
  • Harassment and bullying
  • Adult nudity and sexual activities
  • Minor safety
  • Integrity and authenticity
  • Platform security

That Vegan Teacher has in the past had her videos reacted to by top celebrities such as Gordon Ramsay, who didn’t seem her biggest fan, and Russell Brand for her divisive takes.

That Vegan Teacher responds to her TikTok ban

A short time later, That Vegan Teacher created a video response to the situation, which she uploaded to YouTube with all comments and likes/dislikes turned off.

In her video, the controversial TikToker accused her critics of being “scared” of telling kids “the truth” about veganism, and alleged that her ban was the work of “veganphobic” users. In her video description, she also alleged that her home had been “attacked” by critics, who left “dead animal parts” on her front door and – even purportedly doxed her personal information.

That’s not all; some TikTokers believe that Vegan Teacher may have started using a new TikTok account, although these rumors have yet to be fully verified at the time of writing.

Previously, she has drawn comparisons between animal cruelty and atrocities such as the Holocaust, which is likely a large contributor to why TikTok users would report her and the platform would ultimately kick her off.
