‘Disabled’ gamer stands up midstream…

Zilion

A twitch.tv streamer who goes by the nick of ZilianOP has been miraculously healed by the power of gaming… or for those more cynical readers out there, has been caught out for being one of the most despicable types of frauds that exist in this world.

Zilian was apparently a wheelchair bound gamer who earned a small living by streaming and commentating on his gaming experiences from his wheelchair. Many people stream their games and ask for donations and what people do with their money is their own business but this just isn’t cricket.

In the video below we can see Zilian in the screen on the bottom left, while his girlfriend can be heard chatting to other gamers. Obviously he believes his camera has been turned off and so he takes off his headset and walks away. The girlfriend immediately panics and then quickly composes herself hoping that no one else saw that.

His twitch.tv channel has now been blocked, as has his girlfriends, and twitch.tv have released the following statement

The Twitch broadcaster, Zilianop, did indeed have his channel closed and his partnership contract terminated on the basis of fraud. Moving forward, we’ll be offering refunds to those who subscribed to his channel through Twitch. We have zero tolerance for this type of behavior and the character demonstrated in this situation is truly reprehensible. His actions are a huge slap in the face to Twitch community members with real disabilities such as Aieron, and groups such as AbleGamers, who have helped spread a message of inclusiveness and positivity to not only the Twitch community, but gaming as a whole.

It amazes me how scummy some people can be in this world to defraud people by pretending to be disabled.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

  • AndriyP

    I hope he looses his legs. Scum

    • JasonDK

      Agreed, although losing his hands sounds like a better punishment…so he can’t game anymore. Done.

      • AndriyP

        Things like this really piss me off

      • CaptainNemo42

        You still get Kinect on the Nextbox. So technically…

        • JasonDK

          Let “floppy” wave his arms in the air, I don’t really care. This reminds me about the people pretending to be blind at the robots preying on society’s good nature. Pitueu! I spit on you.

          • AndriyP

            EPIC

          • CaptainNemo42

            He can coop with OVG. on the Nextbox.

            But yeah, I agree. There are people out there who needs legit help, and buggers like this come around.

            He makes me not want to give to anybody, since who do I trust?

    • ElNicko

      he better lose that Beard aswell , He is UNWORTHY of such a Manly beard

      • Ultimo_Cleric_N7

        Agreed. Such a noble beard does not deserve a piss ant owner like this.

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          The concept of a boss beard has been sullied… burn him, burn him! For now it’s nothing but a hobo beard!

          • Ultimo_Cleric_N7

            No not even. This man derserves….a mullet.

  • Trevor Davies

    I’d love to know the thought process behind deciding to do something like this, because I just don’t understand.

    • http://www.facebook.com/colin.spear Colin Spear

      Free gaming plus some pocket money? I’d say it takes less of a ‘moral leap’ than say taking a gun and shooting a guy’s family in front of him for a cell phone.

  • http://www.facebook.com/colin.spear Colin Spear

    But oh so funny when they get busted, especially through their own stupidity. I guess he could claim mental disability?

  • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

    This makes me very angry.

  • Ultimo_Cleric_N7

    Anyone else want to put in back in the wheelchair for real this time? I really dont like it when people take advantage of others like this.

    • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

      Don’t stoop to his level. Leave him be. He will have to live with the humiliation for the rest of his life

  • R4geGam3r

    We took our dog to the FISH SHOP…fish shop…fishshop

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carl-Angus/685100819 Carl Angus

      When you’re drowning you will grasp at anything, Fish Shop was all she had!

  • OVG

    ROFL

  • http://www.facebook.com/lebogang.molefo Lebogang Molefo

    smh

  • R4geGam3r

    I actually read that he received 20000 dollars in donations that he used to by a 5000 dollar wheel chair. And also moved to live with his gf using all this money.

  • http://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX umar bastra

    threw up twice times in ma mouth

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    Beard is probably fake too!

  • FoxOneZA – The Chosen One

    A new religion could be born outta this!

  • Kingkappie

    one word Epic FAIL

  • Zero-Cool

    Well he saw an easy way to make money and he took it. Still quite despicable what he did.

  • HvR

    He is a kiddy-fiddler as well, the girlfriend is currently 16, they have been dating for a few years.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    BROTHERS… SISTERS!!! Doubt thee not… the HEALING powers.. of GAMING!!

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      But seriously though, and I’m not defending the guy if he’s indeed scummy, but what if he’s got muscular dystrophy. At early stages you can still move around, but for the most part you would hang back in your wheelchair.

      • Wtf101

        If that is the case, they would not have banned his show/thingy/whatever surely?

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          They would ban it on the initial wave of shock and awe, and then when he explains that, while he might not be a paraplegic, he is disabled (given that he has – insert whatever disabling muscular-related disease). If that happens, everyone is going to feel pretty silly…

          I’m going to wait and see what the truth is before I condemn the guy. Just now, it does come out that he has a congenital muscle-destroying or bone-eating disease.

          • AndriyP

            The way he got up does not indicate he ever has issues walking and his GF’s shock and attempts to cover up killed it for me, also the way she was speaking to the peeps that host his web in the chat…these two…theres a special place for them

          • Rincethis: Spellalicious

            Well, his girlfriend reacted in a VERY surprised way, and then covered it up, Would think that was a good indicator that the guy is a fake. Had she said “Holy shit, a miracle, a MIRACLE! Instead of going on about fishfood…

          • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

            Maybe, she realised it was a miracle, and the gaming gods had finally answered their prayers. Azeroth delivers!

      • http://twitter.com/DanielKeevy Daniel Keevy

        But then why did his sponsors drop him like a hot potato? I mean it’s possible, but you’d think the channel would have released a statement to that effect.

      • AfroSaxon

        Huh?, he sprung up out of his chair like a spring chicken…

      • Smackie

        He said on his stream numerous times he was PARALYZED waist down.

  • Wtf101

    There is a special place in Hell for people like this. Even an atheist would agree this douche deserves to be roasted alive 12 hours a day. the other 12 hours being spent getting ass raped by something that would call Diablo his “little cousin”

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Theo-Steenekamp/100000464298189 Theo Steenekamp

    It was a miracle maybe???

  • MrJackZA

    Sigh, third attempt to post. Lets hope this one works. ZilionOP was busted a while back for running a botting program in Diablo3 whilst streaming on Twitch. The twitch mods refused to ban him though, even when their clauses state that they will ban accounts of players who cheat/hack etc.

    reddit(dot)com/r/Diablo/comments/16ax94/if_you_are_planning_on_botting_at_least_exit_it/

  • AfroSaxon

    Filthy little leperous swine deserves a beating at the hands of some disabled people…

  • Purple_Dragon

    It’s really insulting to the people are actually disabled.

  • http://twitter.com/DanielKeevy Daniel Keevy

    You have to admit, his gf thinks pretty fast.

    “OMG, my “disabled” bf just stood up. Better talk about dogs to distract everyone!”

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carl-Angus/685100819 Carl Angus

    Well, this is what happens when yo play WoW.

    Discuss….

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      That’s happened to me as well, you just got ganked by a high level rogue, and all you want to do is take a piss and get some cheese curls. Your brain switches off, so this dude clearly forgot he was scamming folks.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Carl-Angus/685100819 Carl Angus

    Apparently a chat log of what happened… http://i.imgur.com/BfqES8k.jpg

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      HAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, he’s screwed. I fell out of my chair… no dude, you stood up and walked away.

    • http://twitter.com/Lolita_za Yolanda Green

      Dogs, getting the blame for everything… and all they want is to be man’s best friend >.<

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    So what has Twitch taught us these last few months:

    (a) when planning to masturbate to some online porn, switch off camera (lol Slooshi)

    (b) if you’re scamming gullible folk with a “woe is me” tale about being disabled, make sure to switch off camera when you stand up to take a leak or grab some cheese curls.. (ZilianOP).

    (c) If female show cleavage, you will get donations….

    /facepalm
