“And salute to all the creators who live in glass houses and do very questionable things of their own.”

EliasN97 is convinced of himself:I know I’m a good person“, writes the streamer in his statement and has further criticism for Simplicissimus. Since they advertise in their video for legal cost financing in the event of gambling losses, they are also said to be making money from gambling.
