4Conner apologizes and quits Twitch
4Conner took to Twitch on Saturday to apologize for his memes and messages.
"In my head, it was all jokes. I never meant any serious harm to anyone mentals," the streamer said. "What I said was very bad. And at the end of the day, I was being racist, I was being transphobic, I was being homophobic, I was being antisemitic."
The streamer claimed that he left the Discord in which the racist messages were sent a while ago and called the group "too edgy". 4Conner concluded his apology stream by announcing that he will be leaving Twitch. He also deactivated his Twitter account, functionally leaving social media.
