At the receiving end of this toxicity were popular Twitch streamers, Sykkuno and Fuslie.

Valorant casters prefer Sykkuno and Fuslie stick to Among Us

Casters AVRL and IHOLDSHIFT were the MCs for the Code Red Valorant tournament. Right after Sykkuno and Fuslie’s defeat, the MCs mocked how the Twitch streamers are popular for playing Among Us and should stick to that.

They had a sarcastic conversation amongst themselves, imitating Among Us players.

Can we get an emergency team meeting going on over here? I don’t understand why we’re playing Valorant instead of Among Us right now.

“Time is money here; you know what I’m saying? So, Fuslie and the crew head back to the game they actually wanna play…”

The two MCs laughed as they mocked Sykkuno, and Fuslie for playing an FPS game. Moreover, they sounded extremely condescending while suggesting how the Twitch streamers wasted their time.

PeterParkTV feels rude MCs needed to be called out

The OfflineTV friend came to know about the incident involving his friends, and he was agitated. When his chat told him how the tournament casters were rude to his friends and told them how they should stick to Among Us, Peter felt they deserve to be called out.

The streamer criticized the casters and pulled out the clip of the incident. He was extremely disappointed after listening to how the MCs mocked his friends. He then himself felt the need to respond similarly even after fully understanding he was toxic too.

Wow! That was really funny. *claps* Good joke dude, I’m laughing. Ha. Ha. Oh, good one, buddy! Yeah, great show. Looking forward to your hot tub stream on just chatting because obviously, your personality is what’s cool about you, you know?”

Peter stopped at that point, realizing he does not want to start any drama. However, events like this show the evil side of the gaming community, one that people are not proud of.
