Unfortunately, 100 Thieves co-owner Valkyrae was also at the receiving end of some of this criticism.

During a recent live stream, Valkyrae addressed the issue regarding Toast’s humor and how many might find it offensive. Rae defended Toast, saying that beyond all the humor, he’s actually a nice person. Moreover, while he jokes about sensitive stuff, he doesn’t condone any of it.

Everyone knows that Toast, you know, has dark humor sometimes. Sometimes, he crosses the line. I understood where a lot of people were coming from. I understand their concerns. But as a friend of Toast, I can say that he is none of those things that he has spoken about and was accused of.”

Even in the clarification that he issued, Toast included the fact that he always has liked dark humor. His liking for this kind of humor is the reason he sometimes becomes edgy. However, if it makes his fans and viewers uncomfortable, or worse, drags his friends into uncomfortable discussions, he is ready to tone down his humor.

Rae agrees that Toast’s humor can be distasteful

Valkyrae knows very well how Disguised Toast is as a person. However, even as her close friend, she often dislikes his humor. “I do think it’s distasteful,” said Rae after defending Toast. Not only does she know the nature of Toast’s humor, but even the Facebook Gaming streamer is well aware of the impact his jokes can have.

No matter how many times Toast has crossed the line, he will always have a large army of friends and fans who would always vouch for him. His reputation as the sassy streamer might end up costing him many opportunities; however, it is a major reason why many watch him. It would be interesting to see the route he takes while creating content after finally quitting Among Us.
