In an unexpected turn of events, the streaming community witnessed a short but intense beef between Twitch streamers chocoTaco and Tyler "Trainwreckstv."

The inception of the controversy can be traced back to a tweet by the esports journalist and shoutcaster Jake Lucky showcasing Trainwreckstv gifting a rare, $15,000 Team Dignitas (Holo) sticker to Get_RighT.

After the tweet got some traction, Twitch streamer and PUBG player chocoTaco seemingly threw shade at Trainwrecks by commenting:

"Picard said it best: 'Villains who twirl their mustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well camouflaged'"

The sly comment by chocoTaco elicited a series of strong and controversial replies from TrainwrecksTV.

After Trainwrecks defended himself, chocoTaco joined in on the conversation once again by pointing out that the Twitch streamer accidentally explained that he didn't understand the context of the quote and stated that he was being harassed by Trainwrecks' community.

One True King (OTK) member and famous Twitch content creator Nick "nmplol" sided with Trainwrecks and dissed chocoTaco.

The conversation between the streamers soon came to a close, but the community continued to provide their stance on the short-lived Twitter beef.

chocoTaco provided his take on the Twitter beef during a recent livestream on May 30.

He justified himself by mentioning that he was just quoting a famous line by Jean-Luc Picard and called Trainwrecks a "big gambling man."

"Oh! Trainwrecks replied to me, did you see that? Oh, no. What a big, big man. Big gambling man. Man, I was just quoting Picard, okay? Gamba (gambling) drama? Well, Trainwrecks like, always like, gives money away, gifts stuff to people and it's just like, everyone praises him for it. It's really dumb."
