Reminder, folks: discharging a loaded weapon in the middle of a livestream is probably one of the dumbest things you can do.

Call of Duty streamer Carl Riemer – a former FaZe Clan member who’s famed for his trickshots – was suspended from Twitch earlier this week for firing a loaded Glock in the middle of a stream. Luckily, nobody was hurt, but the bullet did manage to rip through two cans of G FUEL energy-drink powder, as well as a $1,000 monitor.

“God damn,” Riemer said after the shot. “What the f***? I swear to God I just emptied the mag!”

In a follow-up video posted to Twitter and YouTube, Riemer apologized for being an “idiot” and expressed his concern over how this incident would affect his career and earnings. “I just don’t know what I’m going to do. I’ve put everything into my Twitch for the last three to four years…and I’ve made this one mistake, and it might ruin everything.”

Riemer also earned a ban from SoaR, the esports organization that he was affiliated with.

“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 bit of backlash.”
