Fortnite Battle Royale players should be used to the process of being knocked down by enemies by now, but this Twitch streamer clearly wasn’t happy after being eliminated – smashing his monitor. 

The streamer, WizardYensid, has over 70,000 followers on his channel and can be seen regularly playing the battle royale game, Minecraft, and several other popular titles.

During a live stream on September 23, the player was in a top four situation with his squad in a game of Fortnite, where he found himself as the final one alive from the group of four – until things didn’t go to plan. 

Epic GamesBeing eliminated in Fortnite isn’t an ideal situation.

With enemies positioned on higher ground, the streamer started to build around himself for protection until he was ultimately eliminated.

It’s fair to say that he didn’t take the whole thing very well, throwing his controller right at his monitor just seconds after being consigned to defeat. 

While his microphone isn’t the clearest in terms of its sound quality, it’s easy to assume that he was disappointed not only by the loss, but also his reaction as well. 

At first glance, it would appear that the monitor was still in working order. After all, it didn’t look – at least from the viewers’ perspective – that he had thrown it very hard.

However, WizardYensid later showed his audience the damage that had been caused in the heated moment. His monitor screen was completely broken. 

After showing that the damage had been done to the viewers of the stream, it was obvious that he was very disappointed about what happened. “Noooo!’ he yelled, before briefly showing where the controller was supposed to land. 

Fortnite victories might be few and far between for some players, but even then, is it really worth breaking your monitor in rage?

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
