Controversy

Days Gone Stream

On May 14, 2019, a YouTuber by the name of Kanadian uploaded a video that featured compiled footage from a deleted Days Gone stream where Dom lost his temper with presumed trolls and several viewers saying negative things about his content and behavior. This stream occurred during a dark period for Dom's channel and caused his anger and frustration to reach a boiling point, resulting in an incredibly heated back-and-forth between him and his critics. After the video garnered the attention of Dom and his fans, he addressed it on stream and apologized for letting the trolls get a rise out of him, as well as assuring viewers that he'd work on his anger.

The Last of Us Grounded Stream

On October 20th, 2019, Dom streamed The Last of Us on Grounded Mode: the hardest difficulty in the game. A viewer by the name of Shino said "My man, go back to The Walking Dead." Dom was quickly annoyed by this, saying that he would no longer upload Walking Dead content, as stated several times before. Shino then said that Dom had said that before, yet he continued to make Walking Dead content. One of Dom's stream moderators then timed Shino out after he said that. Dom's attitude had become more bitter as Shino's timeout expired and he proceeded to tell Dom that he was contradicting himself, leading to Dom lashing out at Shino and banning him from the stream. Dom remained annoyed for the rest of that stream.
