Earlier today, more drama was started in the esports industry via Twitter. This time, it regards KEEMSTAR exposing Jake Lucky for misleading his audience on allegations surrounding notorious leaker Slasher. Exciting, right?
Alright, I’m not going to pretend I know what’s going on… But here are the facts. KEEMSTAR believes that Jake Lucky, esports enthusiast and commentator, has misled his audience regarding allegations made against Slasher. This comes just after Jake Lucky tweeted about KEEMSTAR’s discussions on Pokimane. Jake Lucky said the following just five hours ago…
Then, KEEMSTAR tweeted this three hours ago.
KEEMSTAR didn’t stop there, however, and began to discuss the issues at hand. From what we can tell, it is all to do with Slasher.
KEEMSTAR Exposing Jake Lucky Is Really About Exposing Slasher
Essentially, allegations have been made that accuse Slasher of offering work to female streamers in exchange for romantic dates. Or, at least, Slasher has been accused of using his position to leverage romantic relationships with female streamers. Either way, it sounds bad.
After being called out, Jake Lucky fired back at KEEMSTAR with a comment that suggests that he was being misunderstood, as seen below:
He continues to speak up against men “abusing their power and only offering job opportunities” to women “if they give up sexual favours”, which is… Well, pretty admirable. However, with these being allegations… It’s created a bit of beef.
However, does KEEMSTAR have a point?
In an earlier tweet, he shared screenshots that appear to show Slasher offering job recommendations as a way of payback during flirting? It’s a bit unclear and can arguably be interpreted in a number of ways depending on how you read it.
Slasher, however, has also allegedly commented on his allegations. He believes that these allegations against him do not compare to “the Dr Disrespect situation”. No details have been shared yet, but this could be a warning sign for the news to come. If Slasher is to be believed, anyway.
Slasher is yet to Tweet about the accusations KEEMSTAR has made against him. However, I don’t think that that will be necessary just yet given the current discourse… Jake Lucky is dismissing KEEMSTAR’s accusations. Meanwhile, KEEMSTAR is calling out esports organisations and reporters who may have any connection to Slasher.
