Why is it important: While fans and others scream “no harm, no foul,” the firearms Riemer demonstrated in less than 30 seconds all the wrong things about weapons protection–intoxicated, the finger on the trigger, the weapon like a toy, the gun as empty. Every gun safety course teaches people not to do all these things fundamental. Any hurt, any foul doesn’t break it when someone’s life might have meant it.
For brandishing a firearm during the broadcast, a streamer has been removed from Twitch. The Duty Pro Call was also dropped from his sports team and may have ruined his career. The event occurred on Monday night.
Carl Riemer on Twitch, who goes by SoaRCarl, made a live stream when he pulled a gun as a prop for a joke. He pulled the trigger twice and fired his monitor after chambering a round.
He shouted, realizing his blunder. “I swear to God, I just emptied the magic. Luckily, no one injured, but the career of Riemer possibly is gone. On Thursday, the Twitch Sports Organization suspended his website, and SoaR Gaming canned him.
“Last night, we didn’t accept Carl’s live-style behavior,” tweeted SoaR. Twitch didn’t comment whether Riemer’s identity is always to be restored or not, but a screenshot of the pages of his account would seem to suggest that he was gone for good. “It was immediately removed from the SoaR Gaming roster.”
To order to explain himself and make extensive apologies, Riemer used his YouTube channel and Facebook. At the time of the incident, he confessed to being poisoned. The footage of the shooting (above video 0:22) clearly shows a beer can. He shared his remorse, but he accepted the consequences of his stupid act.
“Last night, I made my biggest mistake in life and my future could be lost. Anyone I might have harmed. I would have hurt myself. I would have hurt. Any of my animals I may have hurt. And this is imperdonable. For two years I had that gun, and all it takes is two seconds of dumbness to ruin it all. To ruin another human, to ruin yourself. Don’t do what I did. Don’t do what I have done. I’ve just made a dumb, dumb, dumb mistake. I’m sorry, I can just say, and I’m only deserving of all. Each bit of retroactivity.
