Twitch streamer and former Overwatch League star Daniel ‘Dafran’ Francesca was forced to ban a toxic viewer for demanding he go back to Overwatch and stop playing Valorant.

During his April 14 broadcast, the Danish DPS prodigy was playing as Sova when a two-year subscriber took issue with Dafran’s choice of game.

“Valorant will last less than 10 mins,” the viewer claimed. “It’s sh*t.”

Dafran has been playing a lot of Valorant since the beta began.

This started a bit of a flame war in chat, prompting other viewers to argue with the 24-month subscriber about playing Valorant.

Eventually, Francesca himself chimed in and laid into the viewer for being negative. “What you’re doing is like going to a party and everybody is having fun, and then you say, ‘This party f**king sucks,’” Dafran roasted.

“Dude, the people here are not watching for Overwatch,” he added. “We don’t care about that. We care about this game. This game is fun. You’re in the wrong place my dude, go back to Overwatch. Like, what are you doing here? No one wants you here.”

That didn’t stop the negative viewer from continuing to argue about the games, so the streamer decided to ban him.

“I’m going to have to time you out,” Dafran disappointedly said, much to the pleasure of the rest of his viewers. “It’s going to be a Valorant stream for a long time. You can just unsub, I don’t care. I don’t want to see this talk in the chat. Go somewhere else, dude.”

Shortly thereafter, the Danish streamer revealed there was only one way he would stop playing Valorant.

“I don’t think anything is going to stop me from playing this game. Even if I go down to 100 viewers,” he shockingly proclaimed. “The only thing that’s going to stop me from playing this game is if I plateau and I’m not improving as a player. Or if the game dies.”

“If I stop improving and I’m just hardstuck and I can’t become a good player, then I’m going to quit,” he concluded.

For Overwatch fans looking to see Dafran click heads, it seems like they’re going to have to go elsewhere to get their fix.

After an onslaught of hateful comments, David Dobrik has responded to the backlash he faced for claiming that he “hates nature” on his Views podcast with Jason Nash.

As a huge YouTuber known for massive giveaways and wholesome content, Dobrik’s comments, if at all negative, can cause a stir among his fans. In the episode in question, Dobrik explains at length why he “hates nature,” and how outdoor activities really don’t do it for him.

“I cannot describe to you how much I f***ing hate nature,” Dobrik said. “I never knew I could be so angry at something. I was hiking in the mountains, and everybody I saw, I was just getting angry at. I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ I was so mad!”

“It feels so wrong because everybody loves nature,” he continued. “…what is so cool about something that’s been there… for millions of years! What is so cool about that? …it feels like everything I’ve worked for has been erased. I’m stuck with the dirt and the grass and the leaves.”

Angry commenters described Dobrik as “close-minded”

Angry commenters had a lot to say about his opinions on the world around him and on his attitude about something as mundane as nature.

“I don’t justify it, but now I understand the hate that you get for being so closed-minded and kind of a d**k to your friends or the planet,” one person wrote. “I know that you have done great things like charities and donations. But DUDE, grow up a bit, you live in a bubble.”

But in the latest episode of Views with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash, they discussed the backlash Dobrik faced and read out Dexerto’s article on the subject.

Dobrik explained that fans misunderstood his intentions: “I said I didn’t like nature and by this, I didn’t mean that I don’t care about the ecosystem where I think you shouldn’t recycle and I think you should litter. It was like I just literally do not care for walks.”

“I wasn’t joking about the actual nature but I was kind of like you guys are gonna really hate me for this. I didn’t think people would actually get mad and people are pissed.”

Since the latest episode has aired, angry commenters are nowhere to be seen. It seems that the adamant defenders of nature walks have been appeased.
