A person recently emailed Disguised Toast a list of things that they feel were problematic and have been done by the streamer. These 5 incidents majorly included him joking about sensitive topics like pedophilia, sexual assault, and racism, that might have offended certain communities. While the first three incidents included clips and VODs, the last two were based on mere recollections.

In response to the allegations, Disguised Toast released an elongated statement on TwitLonger. He explained his perspective during all the mentioned incidents and clarified the intentions behind his words/actions.

Disguised Toast addresses the allegations put on him

Firstly, this person had accused Disguised Toast of deliberately reading a racist joke during a Don’t Laugh challenge. According to Toast, he did so only to get a laugh out of the participant, which does not make him racist necessarily.

Furthermore, he talked about his own struggles as an Asian personality. While Disguised Toast clearly mentioned that falling victim to racism doesn’t imply he can’t be a racist, he also said that reading out a joke (that was blurred and beeped at the time of posting the video) does not make him a racist either.

Next, Wang talked about the allegations related to him promoting pedophilia. Apparently, he had drawn a young girl to denote ‘illegal’ during a Pictionary game. In his defense, the streamer stated it was pretty obvious that he wanted to cover the message that “pedo=bad”. However, his actions were taken out of context and misinterpreted.

The person who emailed Disguised Toast also recalled a time when he had negatively talked about consent. Unlike other incidents, there was no video proof for this statement. Regardless, Wang admitted he had once said something like “if a girl says no, just keep asking till she gives in”.

As per the streamer, this was a satirical representation of ‘creepy men’. He did not say this to incentivize someone wrongly and was trying to behave stupidly, intentionally.

Lastly, Disguised Toast addressed an allegation related to him using slurs. He outright rejected this claim, as there was no proof regarding it. The OTV member seemed surprised that so many people assumed that the last two incidents were true only because the first three had VODs attached.
