Alex ‘m60’ Teixiera was playing Overwatch when his teammates started to question the sound of his voice.

When m60 pushed back on what they meant by the sound of his voice, revealing he was gay, he was muted.

The clip starts of with a voice that can be heard saying “why don’t you both shut up,” implying there was an argument going on for some time.

m60 does have a reputation of being confrontational while streaming, though it appears he was being unfairly targeted for his sexuality.

Teammate: Dude, why do you sound like that?

M60: Like what?

Teammate: uh, you know.

A second teammate chimed in, telling the player to mute m60.

The teammate who questioned the sound of m60’s voice then muted him, while the other teammate claimed he had m60 muted for awhile.

Both players then went into the settings to place m60 into the avoid list.

After the incident at least one teammate did not mute, since he could be heard responding to what m60 was saying, even laughing at one point.

m60: So I’m not allowed to play because you guys hate gays, right?

Teammate: (laughter)

The VOD containing the incident currently has a ‘5000: Content Not Available’ error on Twitch. 

m60 streamed the day after the incident with the title ‘I was a victim of a hate crime,’ though that VOD is also currently hit with a 5000 error.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
