Mizkif addresses the community after BruceDropEmOff calls him out post resigning from OTK
Mizkif addressed the streaming community at the beginning of his January 27 broadcast. After stating that he will always respect BruceDropEmOff and hope for the best, the One True King (OTK) co-owner asserted that he did not want to deal with controversies. He stated:
"I don't want to have this drama s**t anymore. I'm tired of it. I can't do it. I don't want to do it anymore. I want to, you know... I want to make content. I want to make you laugh. I want to entertain".
He continued further to say:
"I want you guys to be happy. Let's try to have positive energy. You know? Because you guys, at the end of the day, you're my friends. And I just want me and my friends to have fun."
Mizkif went on to say that he couldn't stand the "negativity" in his life:
"I can't take the negativity in my life anymore. You know? I want me and my friends, to really, you know, get to know each other better. No, seriously. Please, chat, let's just try to spread some positivity. We are a community that has always been very positive. Yes, are you toxic pieces of s**t in the bottom of it? Absolutely, okay? I see what you spam."
The streamer then read aloud a post he made on his subreddit, in which he asked his community to be positive in response to BruceDropEmOff's call out. Mizkif stated:
"'I always will love this community and I know it's been a rough few months. Everyone in the community has been nothing but fantastic over the past few years and I want to give you guys the same energy. I want us to be happy and make good memories. Please let's just try to be positive, and make people laugh. That's why we're here.' It's all I'm here for, man."
Mizkif added that he didn't want to get involved in controversies:
"That is all I'm here for! I just want to make people laugh. I don't want this drama with everybody. I don't want problems with everybody. Let's just go back to the days of just... you know, making people laugh and having fun. That's why I'm here!"
