Per The Daily Dot, Clix "abruptly" stopped mid-stream to announce that he was being swatted.
"I just got swatted, one second," he told his fans. "I gotta go."
Thankfully, the swatting—which, for those unaware, is a practice that involves falsely alerting authorities to someone's residence with hopes that a SWAT unit will be deployed for nonexistent reasons—did not result in any injuries. Instead, Clix and his team were able to resume the game without botching their chance at victory.
Apparently, Clix wasn't the only one targeted in a swatting prank this weekend:
Back in August, Clix's Twitch got briefly shut down after being hacked to share inappropriate content.
The practice of swatting, meanwhile, hit the mainstream news cycle back in 2017 when a hoax call to police resulted in the death of a Kansas man.
"Swatting is not a prank, and it is no way to resolve disputes among gamers," US Attorney Stephen McAllister said in September, the same month which saw Ohio gamer Casey Viner pleading guilty to count each of conspiracy and obstructing justice. "Once again, I call upon gamers to self-police their community to ensure that the practice of swatting is ended once and for all."
