Call of Duty streamer Carl Riemer has landed in trouble after accidentally discharging a handgun during a livestream last night. Nobody was hurt in the incident, Riemer's Twitch account was suspended and he's been removed from the roster of esports org Soar Gaming.
Riemer's troubles started when he picked up a gun and challenged an unknown individual to "say I ain't got money," while simultaneously racking the slide twice. And then, he apparently beleived that the gun was unloaded, he pulls the trigger and murders the can of G-Fuel.
Twitter user @cam834 captured the moment for posterity:
He has Also posted an apology video posted to YouTube, Riemer said that he was "clearly intoxicated" during the stream, but acknowledged that regardless of his state of mind, guns are not toys and should not be treated as such. He also said that Soar acted appropriately by releasing him, and seemed to appreciate how lucky he was that no real harm was done: "It was a stupid mistake, but it's a mistake that could have cost somebody their life," he says in the video.
A dangerous Incident Could have been So much worse why was the Gun even Loaded?
