It’s one thing to stream yourself virtually shooting fictitious enemies, but it’s another thing to fire off an actual handgun. For ex-FaZe member Carl Riemer, that’s the exact way he ended up receiving a temporary ban from the admins at Twitch.
In a video uploaded by Reimer on March 5, Reimer actually shows the clip of him firing off a round near his desk that holds his expensive computers.
Reimer himself admitted how foolish that idea was. “I was clearly intoxicated, but the fact of the matter is,” he said. “Whether I was sober or intoxicated, guns are not a toy, they’re not to be messed with. Even if I had the gun for two years, you can still do something stupid like that.”
Reimer broke one of his $1000 desktop computers in the incident. In addition to losing a monitor, Reimer might not be eligible to receive his last month’s pay from streaming. In fact, Twitch might choose to elongate the ban and force Reimer off of the streaming service.
Along with losing his job and most of his happiness, which is noticeable when you watch his YouTube video, the ex-streamer was also removed from his position as a streamer and competitive gamer for SoaR Gaming.
We do not condone the actions on livestream by Carl last night. He has been removed from the SoaR Gaming roster effective immediately.
