A Twitch streamer who goes by KillaMfCam, who goes by Cameron on several other profiles, has been banned from the platform after a clip of him appearing to scream at his dog and child on stream went viral. The small streamer, whose Twitter banner reads “Aspiring gamer, single father of a beatiful [sic] 3yr old” had his account taken down hours after the clip circulated online. 

On Monday, YouTuber Frizzable tuned into KillaMfCam’s stream after just killing the streamer in Escape from Tarkov, a survival shooter.  The 21-year-old posted a two-minute edited clip of what he saw on stream as well as linking the full recording, so viewers could make up their minds for themselves. 

“Once I finished my game I went to his stream to say GGs, and see if he was a cool person I could potentially play with/befriend,” Frizzable told Insider. “Nothing is taken out of context. The guy was yelling at his child. Which is what shocked me enough to actually post it.”

After being defeated, KillaMfCam got up out of his chair and started yelling at something off-camera. “Stop f— shi— in it,” the streamer says as a small child can be heard yelling. As the child continues to scream, KillaMfCam yells “stop f—– sh—- yourself, how hard is that. God I f—– hate you dude, get out of my room bro.” The clip ends with the streamer saying “I’m going to break your f— neck dude.” 

As the original tweet started to become more popular, calls for KillaMfCam to get banned from Twitch started to gain traction. On Tuesday, his account was suspended on the platform, though it’s unclear if it is permanent. A representative for Twitch told Insider, “We do not tolerate threats of violence on Twitch, and consider these zero-tolerance violations. We take swift action to indefinitely suspend accounts associated with these activities when they are reported to us.”

After the ban, a post on the LiveStreamFails subreddit pulled attention to the story as well as articles from streaming news outlets.

KillaMfCam responded to the allegations on Twitter, calling Frizzable’s video “edited slander of me yelling at my dog.” In these tweets, the streamer says that he was not talking to his three-year-old daughter in the clip, but rather his dog. He remarks that “I ain’t hiding nothing my kid can vouch for me her damn self” and “everyone yells at their kids or animals.”

Frizzable claims that “the video is not slander” and that “the only editing I did to the clip was cut out the parts where he was sitting silently.”

In January, another Twitch streamer Buckerz was banned on Twitch for screaming at his infant after losing a game of Madden.
