The resignation comes a day after he rage quit his stream, as he became frustrated with his chat berating him for collaborating with Mizkif. This sparked much debate surrounding the reason for the resignation. Minutes ago, he revealed that he was leaving the Austin-based streaming organization with a tweet thanking the group for the opportunity:
“I have officially resigned from OTK, thank you for everything”
Seemingly, BruceDropEmOff’s departure from the group seems to be on amicable terms. Here is the reply from the official One True King Twitter account, thanking Bruce for giving his best. They even used one of his catchphrases, “DEO,” to sign off the post.
“Sucks for OTK”: Fans and streaming community speculate BruceDropEmOff’s reasons to leave One True King
The Texas-based group has seen meteoric growth in popularity in the last couple of years and even bagged the Best Content Organization Award at last year’s Streamer Awards. However, they have been mired in a series of controversies since September, which has certainly had an adverse effect on the organization’s perception.
The two big streamers and co-founders of OTK, Mizkif and Rich Campbell, were involved in two separate s*x crime-related scandals recently, which ultimately led to the latter’s resignation in December. Later that month, Jschlatt, a group member since 2021, announced his departure, saying he needed to do it to pursue his goals for 2023.
That made BruceDropEmOff the third person to leave One True King within a span of two months. This has not gone unnoticed by the streaming community. Here is a Redditor on r/LivestreamFail discussing the same issue. The user also noted that Bruce was on Mizkif’s stream recently and had shown no signs of a strained relationship with the organization.
Many others on that same thread noted that BruceDropEmOff was seen on the OTK socials last week, making the resignation a point of debate as fans wondered what exactly prompted it.
