This is what it takes to get your mic cut at Summer Games Done Quick
It really takes something special to overshadow all the goodness on display at Summer Games Done Quick, the speedrunning extravaganza that has raised millions for charity. But "gamepro11" is a very special gamer.
The annual showcase, which features gamers who race through games as fast as possible, is ongoing this week, and has already raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Doctors Without Borders. Each of the participating players volunteers their time to contribute. There’s no denying the virtue in that. But even the best intentions can't quite excuse gamepro11's awkward, bizarre commentary.
During a run through Crash Bandicoot 2, gamepro11 made repeated suicide jokes, dropped a casual reference to domestic violence, uttered various noises that remain difficult to explain, and, in the coup de grace, predicted that he'd become a psychopath and commit mass murder. His mic was cut immediately after that last bit.
