Dafran bans Keemstar over donation, Twitter beef ensues
A Twitter war emerged yesterday after Daniel "Dafran" Francesca banned Daniel "Keemstar" Keem over a donation during Dafran's Twitch stream.
During a Rust stream, Dafran noticed that a three dollar donation had come through from Keemstar, but the former Overwatch League pro was not amused. Instead of giving thanks, he immediately started roasting Keemstar.
"Keemstar is a piece of shit, let's be honest," Dafran said. "Ban him, get him out of here."
Shortly after his ban, Keemstar went on a Twitter rant and offered a $10,000 bounty on Dafran. The bounty was issued as a challenge for anyone who can kill Dafran and his team in-game. He called for a complete raid, meaning that Dafran and his team were killed, and their base ransacked and destroyed. This would set anyone back a significant amount in the game, and there have been multiple instances of streamers quitting popular Rust servers for similar behavior.
Keemstar did not have nice things to say in response to Dafran's comments.
"Fuck this guy. I'm rich, and he made me sad, so now I'm gonna make him sad," Keemstar said. He then issued a $10,000 bounty on Dafran. He wanted Dafran raided, killed on the server, and made to cry.
The bounty was called off when Keemstar learned of a raid planned by his friends in order to "fulfill" the bounty, but he did claim he would get his revenge on the server through a friend's accounts.
The OffineTV Rust server has gained notoriety as of late because of a plethora of high-profile streamers with different playstyles merging in one server. Imane "Pokimane" Anys has quit the server due to frustration, and Felix "xQc" Lyngyel was mainly the cause. A new server is planned to open on January 7 in order to separate players like Pokimane, who want a roleplay-focused server, and players like xQc, who want to pillage and plunder bases for fun.
Keemstar is also recently under fire for reporting on Twitch streamer Carson "CallMeCarson" King who is accused of "grooming" underage fans.
