Veteran streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar has blasted the Valorant section of Twitch as the “fakest” section of the streaming site, as hyper surrounding beta access rages on.

Valorant’s closed beta is fast approaching one month old, with thousands of prospective players still doing their best to get their hands on an access drop.

Closed beta drops are issued to players who have watched over two hours of Valorant on Twitch, but summit1g, who has streamed exclusively on Twitch for close to a decade, has suggested that this system may be doing more harm than good.

Valorant’s closed beta has been acclaimed by those who have managed to get access.

During his April 24 live stream, while exploring the new Sea of Thieves update, summit grew frustrated with the state of Twitch’s Valorant section.

He suggested that streamers are lying about drops to entice viewers, as well as criticizing viewers who are manipulating streams in order to watch multiple at once.

“This is the fakest section on Twitch!” raged summit, hovering his cursor above the Valorant section, which sat at 276,000 concurrent viewers. “It’s the absolute fakest section on Twitch right now, am I wrong? Am I f**king wrong? Look at that [viewer] number. Is that real? Not even f**king close! Not even f**king close!”

“You know what that numbers does?” he continued. “It helps me burn out, just a little bit quicker… I don’t wanna be in that category – look at this chat. Just stare at this section. How many 24/7 drops, how many 24/7s can you see… how many f**king 24/7s are on this category?! It’s disgusting.”

In a second clip, he continued his criticism of streamers who are pretending to be live: “You should all be f**king ashamed. You’re not Twitch streamers, you’re not even YouTubers… There’s no editing, you f**king throw up your VOD as soon as you go offline, like I’m playing my outro video… Valorant looks like a piece of shit video game on Twitch right now.”

While initially praised as a game-changing idea to access a beta, some have criticized the way players get access to drops, arguing it promotes fake viewing and fake streaming. Summit clearly falls into this category, and explained why he doesn’t want to contribute to its ‘fakeness’.

Riot have commented in the past on measures they are taking to combat viewers and streamers manipulating the system to try and get access, but summit clearly feels they need to do more.

Tana Mongeau has responded to a video of her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne who was filmed kissing another influencer in a TikTok that’s had millions of views.

Bella Thorne was at Clubhouse BH this week, the creator collective founded by Daisy Keech. The “Shake it Up” actress collaborated with influencer Teala Dunn in TikTok videos.

But in one video she was seen kissing her directly on the lips. The clip has already racked up more than 8 million views and 1.5 million likes.

It’s unsurprising that the pair are hanging out, as Teala and Bella have known each other for several years after both appearing on Shake It Up together. Bella makes regular appearances in influencers’ social media posts and even music videos.

Teala recently joined Clubhouse BH and has come under fire in recent weeks for repeatedly posting TikToks that use the same joke, over and over. Her video with Bella Thorne even plays into the same joke where she begins the video saying: “Fun fact, actually really really sad fact.”

Bella is also the ex-girlfriend of popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau. They dated for over a year but broke up in February 2019, and have thrown shade at each other over social media since.

Tana responded to the kiss by duetting the TikTok from her own account, adding: “People really pretend to be my friend,” and then commented “It’s a joke…kinda? Like?”

TikTokers and other influencers weighed in with their opinions too. Harry Jowsey commented: “What happened last time someone hung out with your ex?” referring to drama between the two and Francesca Farago in September.

Francesca and Tana were rumored to be dating, but they got into a fight after Tana posted a video with Harry, Francesca’s ex-boyfriend.

Another user got over 10,000 likes on one comment under Tana’s TikTok that said: “Teala hasn’t even done anything to me, yet she triggers me so much and idek why.”

Teala herself commented: “Girl what???” Despite claiming her response is a joke. But the pair appeared to have resolved any issues that may have come up after Teala tweeted: “Ummm I freaking love @tanamongeau everything’s fine y’all there’s no drama,” and Tana responded with love heart emojis.

Whether a romance is blossoming between Teala and Bella is yet to be determined.
