CallMeCarson Plans Return To Streaming On The Same Day As Twitch Boycott

It's a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire for YouTuber Carson "CallMeCarson" King, as he is set to make his return to streaming on the same day as the Twitch boycott.

The 22-year-old Minecraft streamer and content creator was previously accused of grooming an underage girl, and subsequently stopped any appearances on social media or streaming platforms. The allegations against King stemmed from reportedly having 'sexual conversations' (phrased as "sexting" by fellow Minecraft streamer Noah "Hugbox") and receiving explicit photos from a 17-year-old girl. 

Now, King is set to return to streaming, after releasing a 90-second-long YouTube video which he titled "moving forward".

Within the video, Carson refused to elaborate on the previous controversies but stated: "I’m not seeking forgiveness, nor am I making excuses.

"I’m sure many of you are expecting a long, drawn-out, video explaining my ‘truth’, but I have no intentions of doing that."

Instead, the streamer will be donating 100% of his income through Twitch and YouTube directly to charity, with a different foundation each month. Starting on September 1, all of his proceeds will be gifted to Games for Love.

However, September 1 is also the day of the arranged Twitch boycott, where many of the platform’s bigger names will be avoiding uploads in protest against "hate raids".

The platform blackout is a response to the 'TwitchDoBetter' hashtag that surfaced after marginalised streamers rallied in response to the lack of action by Twitch to prevent hate raids and other forms of vile abuse.

With Twitch taking 50% of the profits made by streamers, the boycott is an attempt to "hit them in the pockets", with personalities such as "Rek It Raven" and "LuciaEverblack" spearheading the movement.

CallMeCarson’s return will coincide with the boycott, although it is unclear whether he was aware of the campaign or chose not to participate.

King continued: "I just want to do my own thing and make some money for people who need it more than me."
