Turkey Tom recently ended up in hot water after casually dropping the N-bomb during a Kick Livestream. Here, he said “No matter what happens, you’ll always be my…” to his friend. The timing of his comment caused a stir with his fellow streamers who reacted by shouting and clapping. While his use of the word wasn’t acknowledged much during the stream, it was later clipped and shared online.
On Twitter, it was mentioned and several people called out Turkey Tom for his use of the controversial slur. Sadly, this isn’t the first time that he has used this word either. Several years ago, a YouTuber named Deangelo Wallace even made a video calling him out on it after Tom had previously used it in a different context. Based on this, we shouldn’t expect Tom to be canceled anytime soon due to the story of him using the word.
