During a recent live stream, Destiny inadvertently used the n-word while addressing a viewer’s previous use of the term. This slip of the tongue has since caused a stir among his audience and on social media platforms.
Following the incident, Destiny expressed regret, emphasising that he would never intentionally use such derogatory language. He described the n-word as “disgusting” and stated that no situation would compel him to use it.
The incident quickly went viral, with many expressing shock and disappointment. Discussions on social media platforms like X highlighted how some controversial streamers use such language for viral attention.
Calls for Destiny’s arrest, ban, and even actions against his family have emerged in the wake of the incident.
The n-word, deeply ingrained in American history, is recognised as a racial slur against people of colour.
Originating from a period of intense racial discrimination and slavery, the term carries a heavy weight of historical oppression and is widely considered offensive and inappropriate in modern discourse.
Society generally condemns the use of the n-word due to its painful past and the offence it causes to people of colour. Its use, especially by public figures and content creators, often leads to significant backlash, including calls for cancellation or protest.
