On June 2, 2023, controversial streamer Bruce "BruceDropEmOff" went live for the first time on his Kick channel. A particular moment from the broadcast has gone viral, during which the content creator shared some relatively strong sentiments for One True King (OTK) co-founder Matthew "Mizkif." BruceDropEmOff expressed his displeasure with the latter's signing with Rumble and brought up a past livestream which he abruptly ended. He then remarked:
"Y'all remember that night I ended the stream? Y'all remember this right here, that I randomly ended the stream where I got back from Texas? It was that night. That was the night that everything happened. But Mizkif, you can kill yourself, on god! Nobody will literally f**king care, on god. Like, you're on Rumble. F**k Rumble. Rumble is literally a f**king dead. Conservative alt website."
"Kick is the f**king way" - BruceDropEmOff gives his take on streamers leaving Twitch and signing with other platforms
The former OTK member continued the conversation by stating that the Trainwreckstv-backed platform, Kick, is the way to go for streamers looking to switch:
"Kick is the f**king way. You n****s know it. You n****s is just too f**king scared to admit it because you n****s is f**king... you n****s is so f**king scared of f**king Twitch!"
Bruce slammed the desk, claiming that content creators will now be compelled to join new platforms due to the expiration of their 70-30 Twitch contracts in June:
"Losing your f**king 70-30 contracts that are about to go away in June, anyway. That's why you n****s is about to sign to a different platform. (The streamer slams his desk) Any-f**king-way! Any way! So, do it! You need to f**king do it! Do it! Now! Sign it!"
The 22-year-old burst out laughing and said he was "recruiting" for Kick:
"I'm just recruiting. I mean, this is my recruiting."
