A Destiny 2 streamer who goes through GsxrClyde online found himself in hot water after a clip of him pushing his dog in a mini-fridge began to circulate on social media.
GsxrClyde posted a “best of” compilation to YouTube on January 3, celebrating the New Year with some of his favorite Twitch clips from 2021. Oddly, and other users were quick to point out, the compilation included a clip of the streamer pushing his dog, Thor, into a refrigerator. Not exactly a moment to be proud of.
Before continuing, take a look at some of the best live wins and failures below!
In the clip, which you can see below, Thor looks over GsxrClyde’s shoulder and curiously sniffs a camera harness. That’s when the streamer pushes the dog back against the mini-fridge. “You piss me off,” he tells his pet before calling him “f ** k stupid”.
Obviously, it hasn’t gone well with the internet, with many users calling GsxrClyde for its unnecessarily aggressive reaction.
“It’s the bullish nature that we don’t need in our community”, noticed a reviewer. “The fact that he’s calling others now for this video and that he’s doubling down is all we should know about him.”
“Some people don’t deserve dogs. He’s one of them,” added another. “What an asshole.”
GsxrClyde has since posted some sort of no-apology. While he notes that the offending clip making its way into the 2021 compilation was totally his fault, he explains that because no one noticed the original clip in its original air time, it shouldn’t bother us now. Um … that’s probably not the winning defense he thinks he is.
“The problem is, the reason people are mad at this is that it was in a flagship video from 2021. It was my fault I didn’t watch the video. It’s not the publisher’s fault, it’s nobody’s fault, ”the streamer said. “It’s my fault, but this clip was on Twitch. When it happened, no one said a word.
“If they thought it was wrong, they would have cut it and immediately put it exactly on Twitter. That’s what would have happened, when it happened, and I would totally understand that on a different level. But, this is simply not the case. He would stay there, and people would hunt witches on him.
