Oscar winner Al Pacino may have opened up Game Awards 2022, the night of industry recognition and expensive marketing for the biggest games around the world, but it was a new kind of Internet celebrity who shut it down. “I want to nominate this award for the reformed orthodox rabbi Bill Clinton,” said a little boy with long hair who suddenly appeared on stage after Sheikh’s ring It was crowned Game of the Year. He was dressed in an ill-fitting tailcoat, and sneaked onto the stage behind the curtain Sheikh’s ring development team.

Security followed, and Online chaos ensued As everyone tried to figure out what just happened during host Jeff Kelly’s heavily staged three hour event. But this was the first time that the young man named him my city Matan Even, believed to have sprung up to shorten his internet fame with his online trolling, even if it was his weirdest.

After the party is over, Kelly chirp That the “person who interrupted” the event has been arrested. Five hours later, Evin was already tweeting. “Today there is a lot of talk and speculation,” he wrote. “More information will be released on all fronts sooner rather than later.”

When asked what happened after the incident, the LAPD’s Office of Media Relations contradicted Keighley’s account, saying that a report was taken but no arrests were made. When asked to set this straight, a spokesperson for The Game Awards gave a more detailed account.

They said that Till was taken to a “secure area” within the Microsoft Theater by TGA security personnel where he was then questioned by venue security as well as “TGA-designated LAPD officers”. He was then taken into custody, they said, and taken to a local police station for custody by LAPD officers hired by the TGA in their patrol van. When asked about this version of events, a representative from the Los Angeles Police Department would only confirm that the person was taken to the station. Since he was not arrested, it is unclear how long he was held for questioning.

While this may have been the first time he faced arrest, it was far from his first publicity stunt. Before sneaking his way on stage at one of the gaming industry’s biggest events of the year in front of an audience of over a million people, he even crashed a BlizzCon panel, went viral due to an LA Clippers fan’s camera banter, and appeared right wing. plot display infowars at least twice.

The Clippers’ stunt came in October 2019. Amidst the Hong Kong protests, she even appeared momentarily on the fan cam at the team’s home stadium, Just to immediately lift a black shirt It read, “Fight for Freedom, Stand with Hong Kong.” China had Blacklisted Houston Rockets After their general manager posted a picture of the same jersey just two weeks ago.

The next month, I even interrupted a Blizzcon 2019 A board with a similar message of support for the Hong Kong protests. Blizzard has stopped Overwatch pro Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai the month prior to doing the same, along with the NBA and other companies, came under heavy criticism at the time for failing to stand up for the democracy protesters in Hong Kong.

as such Motherboard pointing to, making this even a ripe target to be chosen by right-wing political actors who saw the opportunity to attack apparent liberal hypocrisy on the issue. But even he was apparently also a huge fan of at least one of the infowarsHosts, Owen Schroyer. He said a lot in his 2019 appearance, calling Shroyer his “favorite person.” infowarswhile in his second appearance in 2020, Shroyer called her “one of the young stars of the conservative movement”.

While Even’s social media activism seems to concern itself almost exclusively with the Hong Kong protests and censorship by the Chinese government, his journey from protester to Infowars guest is also an excellent example of Ambient reaction online This can lead you to go from searching for political issues in Google to landing on right-wing content channels. (He was apparently even 12 at the time of his Infowars debut.) This is also a reason why some have quickly interpreted his nonsensical remarks about Bill Clinton and orthodox Judaism as anti-Semitic.

Before last night, Evin’s last tweets were from March 2021 And they were concerned about the increase in hate crimes toward Asian Americans. infowarsMeanwhile, founder Alex Jones has seen hundreds of millions sued by the parents of the victims of the Sandy Hook school shooting. But recently, the site attempted to court Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, who used the look to pay tribute to Hitler, a heel turn that comes amid a larger wave of anti-Semitism in conservative circles.

Against that background, some were concerned that Evin’s stunt was secretly a 4-chan elemental deep path. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. bloombergJason Schreyer, who was even interviewed earlier today, said he seems to understand Hebrew, and I called him “It is almost certainly a Jewish prankster.”

He’s also repudiating his previous Infowars appearances, even as he continues to troll messages with other journalists.

“I’ve never been an avid spectator [of Infowars] Nor am I now Motherboard. He reportedly called Clinton “a true inspiration, particularly on the gaming business.”
