A professional call of Duty the streamer who brandished a firearm and accidentally fired a round at his desk was suspended by Twitch and abandoned by his eSport organization.

Last night, during a live streaming from his home, call of Duty shooting game specialist and former FaZe Clan member Carl Riemer he pulled out a gun. “Bitch says I have no money,” he jokingly said while holding it. An open can of Coors Light beer was visible on his desk during the clip. Riemer then pulled the trigger and, to his apparent surprise, the weapon fired. It has now been suspended on Twitch.

The round didn’t harm anyone, but it punctured a nearby container of Gfuel, a powdered energy formula marketed for players. “Damn it,” said Riemer immediately after. “What the fuck? I swear to god I just emptied the magazine! “

Today, Twitch has suspended the Riemer channel and the eSport organization it was part of, SoaR Gaming, has abandoned it.

“Let’s not forgive Carl’s live streaming actions last night,” SoaR wrote on Twitter. “It was immediately removed from the SoaR Gaming roster.”

In separate videos on chirping is Youtube, Riemer addressed the situation. (Has not yet responded to Kotaku.)

“I made my biggest mistake of all my life last night, and it could ruin my life,” he said in the Twitter video. “I could have hurt someone. I could have hurt myself. I could have hurt one of my animals. And that’s unforgivable … I’ve had that gun for two years, and two seconds of stupid are enough to ruin everything. Ruin someone else, ruin yourself. Don’t do what I did. “

On YouTube, he claimed to have been “clearly drunk” when it happened. He then went on to show viewers a metal mug that said the round went through the path to a monitor on the desk next to him, who said it was also broken. He went on to say that he is not sure how long his Twitch suspension will last, but that if he is permanent, his bank account will be injured: while he has over 800,000 YouTube subscribers said it “stopped doing enough for YouTube to pay bills some time ago.”

He also thanked SoaR for doing “what they had to do” by leaving him and apologized profusely.

“I just made such a stupid, stupid, stupid mistake,” he said. “All I can say is that I’m sorry and I deserve everything. Every little kickback.”
