Popular League of Legends streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp exposed a viewer for their “simp” comments towards his girlfriend Macaiyla, firing a few shots back of his own during his stream.
During a March 16 broadcast, Tyler pulled up the chat logs for one viewer, KevQuixote, and started mocking the user’s comments, with his whole audience being able to follow along and see what was being said.
“Tell Macaiyla to stream, please,” Tyler read from the chat in a sing-song tone. “I want to watch someone who is beautiful, intelligent, creative, brilliantly artistic and has a cute chin.”
As he started reading the next comment, the streamer nearly choked in the process. “Type 5 if you’re waiting for Macaiyla to walk by,” he laughed. “Five!”
On the bright side, not all of Kev’s comments were about Tyler’s girlfriend. One post, which the streamer didn’t read out, claimed Riot was a trash company.
After skipping the Riot-related comments, Tyler kept up the momentum. “Tell Macaiyla she looks great today. Only Macaiyla’s beauty can take my words away.”
“Please don’t let the corona [virus] get Macaiyla. She’s too beautiful to die,” Tyler mocked, before finally deciding to stop reading the comments.
“Kid, it’s cringe,” the League streamer blasted. “You’re a simp. She’s not going to DM you ever in your life.”
While the definition of a “simps” is difficult to describe, it’s commonly used as a word for men who overvalue women and do or say things they may not agree with because they believe a woman would want them to.
That said, when it was all said and done, Tyler did give the user some advice. “That’s not healthy either,” he added. “F**king Christ. Like, Jesus kid.”
Tyler isn’t the only Twitch star to call out “simping” as unhealthy behavior. As Dexerto previously reported, Canadian streamer Annarf claimed that simping is bad for men and women because it makes women feel entitled.
It’s unclear whether the viewer was trolling or really meant the comments about Tyler1’s girlfriend, but in any case, the streamer was quick to put the individual on blast.
