Obviously, Karl wasn’t always as famous as he is now. The streamer has had peaks higher than Ludwig, the current King of Twitch. However, he was also a desperate upcoming streamer looking for every opportunity to grow. He was also a fanboy who wouldn’t miss any chance to meet massive streamers, especially those he looked up to.

Naturally, Karl couldn’t give up a chance to meet Ice Poseidon, an extremely controversial former Twitch streamer who is now banned for his behavior on the platform. Given Poseidon’s influence a few years ago, almost everyone would want to get a photo with him. However, as soon as he got off his prime, no one would want any association with him.

When a picture of Karl Jacobs with Ice Poseidon surfaced on the internet, fans started criticizing him for his choices. Clearly, Karl had to address the issue before matters got out of hand.

In a Twitlonger post, Karl said, “He was doing an IRL stream in my city when I lived there, and when I had the ability to show up on one of the biggest streamers streams at that point, I decided to show up where he was streaming uninvited.

Jacobs continued his apology by also adding that he was merely a passionate individual looking for a photo. The photo doesn’t mean that he condones or endorses any of Ice Poseidon’s actions or words.

I do sincerely apologize as I have for a while now understood that this could be viewed as an endorsement. I don’t endorse any of his actions, and I stopped watching his content a long time ago. I’m extremely sorry to anyone that heard that we had met and was impacted in a negative way. I never want anyone to feel uncomfortable in this community or to have doubts on who I am as a person.
