Wheelchair Bound Gamer Banned From Twitch.TV for Faking His Disability

Twitch.TV

Gamers can do some pretty scummy things. It seems like you can’t go online without having your sexuality questioned or being pelted with racial slurs that are only a few steps short of a hate-crime. But faking a disability? Man, that’s low.

Angel “zilianOP” Hamilton is a well-known streamer on Twitch.TV who was supposedly paralyzed from the waist down. He has earned quite a bit of money through donations on his stream, nearly $20,000.

However, in a recent Stream recording, Hamilton can be seen standing up from his wheelchair with no problem! As a result, he and his girlfriend’s Twitch.TV account have been banned.

“His actions are a huge slap in the face to Twitch community members with real disabilities such as Aieron, and groups such as AbleGamers, who have helped spread a message of inclusiveness and positivity to not only the Twitch community, but gaming as a whole,” said a Twitch.TV representative to Kotaku.

People like this give gamers everywhere a bad name. His response can be found on Eurogamer, where he claims he fell as soon as he walked away. Whatever, dude.
