HasanAbi’s response to Kyedae’s Valorant dread

Just hours after winning the award, Kyedae wrote on Twitter, “The moment I won I felt more dread than anything because I knew the hate I’d get. Woohoo. Tarik is much more deserving of this award than anyone, but it was fan-voted. Not my fault. And I’m so sorry for whoever this upset” apologizing to the community for taking ‘Tarik’s award’.

“Everyone was saying, Tarik got robbed. And I know Tarik, I love Tarik, that’s my brother. Tarik would hate this. He would never ever, in a million years would want people doing this kind of insane sh*t. Especially because a lot of streamers are friends with one another… it is really fu*cing weird when parasocial attitudes get in the way.” said HasanAbi about the toxic ‘fandom’.

QT also shared her thoughts, saying, this is one of the worst things about awards shows. According to her, the losing nominee’s fanbase will always be louder and more toxic than the winner’s. On Twitter, she also replied to Kyedae’s concerns, saying that the decision was taken by Fan votes and there was no bias from the committee.

Looking at the overwhelming negativity by the community, QT is even considering removing the Valorant category all together from the event. “It’s sad to see results from my award show being used to hate on creators who are meant to be celebrated please grow up and do better.” said QT on Twitter. 

QT also revealed that Tarik was not even in the second place for the award. The results after the polls were:

  1. Kyedae 
  2. QuarterJade
  3. Tarik
  4.  Shazam
