Esports expert and self-proclaimed #1 esports consultant Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau took to Fox News on July 1 to discuss esports, and dropped a hilarious ‘simp’ reference even quicker than you could imagine.

Slasher is clued in on just about every facet of esports imaginable and has more than earned his reputation, which is why huge corporations like Fox like to get him on the show.

As such, following a wave of high-profile Twitch bans, he was asked to speak on Fox Business about what exactly is happening and, more importantly, why certain people are being banned.

This wasn’t Slasher’s first time on TV or even Fox, but he made sure to make the most of it anyway.

Speaking also about how the esports industry has attempted to adapt to the ongoing global health crisis, moving LAN events online and trying to keep the ball rolling, Slasher managed to sneak several jokes in – including correctly naming Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, after CNBC hilariously implied that nobody knew his real name just a few days prior.

The one that made Slasher go viral, though, was a ‘simp’ reference, common internet slang for someone that will say anything to get into someone else’s good books.

When asked whether Twitch’s decision to temporarily suspend U.S. President Donald Trump’s account was a political one, Breslau said that he believes the company wants to treat everyone the same, no matter what.

As a result, he says that Twitch “want to make sure Trump is the same as SimpLord69 as a random person on the website.”

The reference was met with tumultuous online applause, with all corners of the esports sphere commending Slasher for his work.

Nikki Mccann Ramirez said the moment was “instantly iconic.”

Similarly, gaming entertainment brand Tempo Storm said that “today will go down in history as the day of SimpLord69.”

It’s very possible that this is the first time ‘simp’ has ever been used on Fox News – and what a way to do it.

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.”
