Thursday evening, a clip from Twitch streamer Buckkerz which showed him yelling at his young child after losing to a video game has gone viral.
In the clip, Buckkerz (whose legal name has not been confirmed by Insider) can be seen playing “Madden 21” with his toddler son on his lap. After intercepting his in-game throw, the streamer yells “god dam —” as he throws his controller down, smashing it. “F — ing $ 300 f — ing controller” he yells as the toddler yells at the camera.
“I’m about to go before I lose him,” he said, placing the child in a chair before yelling directly in his face, “Shut the f — up!”
Her webcam then disappears and the flow is cut off.
Buckkerz is a small streamer who, according to TwitchTracker, streamed playing “Madden 21” several times a week in November and October 2020 for less than two hours for an average audience of around five viewers. Her Jan.21 feed was her first time returning and one of those five viewers managed to capture the clip and post it on Reddit.
The 28-second clip gained traction in the LiveStreamFails subdirectory where it quickly racked up over 10,000 upvotes in less than 24 hours. “If video games make you do this to your family, pets, or a fu —– … you need to re-evaluate your life,” wrote one Redditor. “That poor baby. My heart broke for this child,” wrote another.
On Twitter, the clip was posted by YouTuber Nicholas DeOrio, where he recorded more than 160,000 views in 10 hours.
For a brief period, after the clip aired on Reddit, Buckkerz changed the name of his Twitch channel to “Imsorry1234556” before the channel was taken offline. It is not known if the account was deleted by the streamer or if it was banned by Twitch. Twitch did not respond to comments at the time of posting.
When the backlash started to kick in, Buckkerz quickly deleted his many social media accounts, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. His now defunct Bukkerzgaming account wrote in his About tab, “Living sober, being a good father and husband is my mission in life.”
Unfortunately, streamers on Twitch have already shown similar behavior.
In 2018, Australian streamer Luke “mrDeadMoth” Munday aired to attack his pregnant fiancée who was trying to get him away from a “Fortnite” game. A year later, he was charged with common assault and sentenced to a 14-month Community Corrections Order. In 2019, a streamer who goes by TTV_MajesticUnicorn was seen on camera biting and hitting her baby.
Buckkerz did not return a request for comment by post hour.
