Ice Poseidon’s livestream was interrupted in possibly the most unexpected way yesterday, as a neighbour grew tired of the noise coming from his room and threatened to ‘rape’ him. 

Poseidon, whose real name is Paul Denino, was having a chat with Call of Duty YouTube commentator ONLYUSEmeBLADE before the pair were left visually shocked by what a man shouted in the background. 

Ice Poseidon’s doors were open, meaning that people outside could hear what he was saying during the stream. This clearly hadn’t gone down well with one of those people, and it soon became apparent that the streamer was being threatened by a neighbor for being too loud.

“Shut up! Shut up. I’m so tired of you,” said the neighbor. “Shut up. Please shut the hell up.” 

As Poseidon jumped out of his chair to see what was the problem, the guy shouted: “I’ll rape you! I’ll rape you!” 

While the threat was both bizarre and serious, many individuals commenting on a YouTube video of the event seem unconvinced that this was the real deal, with many branding it ‘fake’ and ‘scripted’.

After the angry neighbor slowed down with the shouting and everyone had time to reflect on what had just happened, Poseidon said it was only 5:30 in the afternoon and that he wasn’t being loud at all. 

“Fucking retard. My fucking neighbor dude, fucking yelling,” Poseidon said before bursting into laughter. 

“He’s so mad dude. I’m not that loud, right?”

Seven-time Tetris World Champion Jonas Neubauer died at the age of 39 on January 4 after a sudden medical emergency.

The American, an icon of the game, won seven of the first eight Classic Tetris World Championships (CTWC) between 2010 and 2017, finishing as runner-up in 2014 and 2018.

His influence extended far beyond his achievements in the game, as he inspired the competitors around him. In a 2018 interview with VICE, now two-time World Champion Joseph Saelee said: “I would say most of my gameplay is based off Jonas’s gameplay. I try to play exactly like him for the most part.”

Jonas was also a popular Twitch streamer, with 25k followers. Such was his greatness, he went viral in 2018 after accidentally breaking the then world record for quickest time to reach 300,000 points, achieving the feat in 1 minute and 57 seconds.

Tributes pour in for Jonas Neubauer

News of his passing was announced on his Twitter account on January 9. The message said: “He was the absolute best. We are devastated, overwhelmed with grief, and we already miss him dearly.”

The news sent shockwaves around the world of esports and gaming, with tributes pouring in to commemorate Jonas and his achievements.

Tetris paid tribute, writing “Jonas Neubauer was one of the greatest classic Tetris players of all time in skill, spirit, and kindness.”

Joseph Saelee, who stunned Jonas to win the 2018 CTWC, left a simple message that said: “Rest In Peace, Jonas.”

TSM chess grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura said: “I only had the opportunity to meet him once, but he was a very kind person who had a great enthusiasm for all games from tetris to chess and beyond.”

Chris Higgins, director of the documentary ‘Best of Five: The Tetris Champions’, described him as a “loyal son, great husband, staunch friend.”

One fan has created a digital card, free for all to sign, which will be sent to Jonas’ family, with the opportunity for people to leave a message to one of the greats of esports.
