During his 28th February Twitch broadcast, popular Call of Duty: Warzone streamer Mason “Symfuhny” Lanier seemingly dropped a racial slur while talking to Ali “Myth” Kabbani.
You can take a look at the Twitch clip that captured the incident live here:
“I mean Myth, I mean n* I’m down to go on a hike today, I’m down to go on a hike tomorrow,” the 21-year-old said.
Myth was certainly caught off-guard by Lanier’s slip of tongue, as he started spamming question marks in his chat. The rest of the chat seems to have noticed it as well.
Following the incident, some prominent streamers, including Myth, came forward in Symfuhny’s defence.
“Even though we heard it, he didn’t say it. Symfuhny has the word, f*cking behaviour, and patterns of a 12-year-old child. The kid’s awkward, scrawny, weak, bad at FPS games and then on top of that, he doesn’t know how to speak proper English,” Myth claimed during his stream. “I talked to Symfuhny, and he genuinely mumbled up some words and it came out like that.”
Popular political streamer Hasan also said that (clip now deleted) Symfuhny doesn’t strike him “as a type of person who casually drops the f**king n-word when he’s having conversations in private.”
