Streamer apologizes for leaking game reveals, says he did it for clout and ‘the buzz’

Streamer Dan Allen, who was revealed yesterday as the person behind “The Real Insider” (opens in new tab) Twitter account that leaked (among other things) Ubisoft’s big Assassin’s Creed presentation (opens in new tab), has apologized for his actions in a new video posted to YouTube, saying he did it all for clout and “the buzz.”

“I’m ashamed of it. It was pathetic, and just dishonest,” Allen said in the video. “A lot of you are reaching [out] and saying, ‘Why the fuck did you do it?’ To be honest, it’s clout, it’s the buzz, it’s being addicted to the thrill of thousands waiting on what you’re going to say.”
