CoD streamer banned from Twitch after accidentally firing a gun on stream

In what may be one of the biggest displays of stupidity on Twitch yet, Call of Duty trickshotter Carl 'SoaRCarl' Riemer has been banned from the platform after accidentally firing a gun during a livestream. 

During what appeared to be some sort of drunk chatting stream, Riemer is seen cocking a pistol and talking to the audience when he lets off an accidental shot. The bullet looks to have hit the wall in front of him and no one was harmed in the incident. 

The footage has been uploaded to Twitter and YouTube, while Riemer's Twitch channel has been suspended. Gaming and esports organisation SoaR Gaming also addressed the incident, stating that Riemer has been "removed from the SoaR Gaming roster effective immediately". 

Not cool, Carl

Riemer has also addressed his actions in a tweet, stating: "don't do what I did. Ever. Literally everything was going perfectly in life and one mistake ruined everything I've been doing for year. I cannot put into words how sorry I am and how dangerous what I did last night was."

“I just want to thank SoaR for doing what they needed to do,” Riemer added in an accompanying video.

“I hope you guys know that I have no hatred towards them or anything like that. I have nothing but love for those people.”

Before its suspension, Riemer's Twitch channel had over 108k followers. He's known primarily for his Call of Duty gameplay.
