Did this Twitch streamer download child porn?

I am desperate for faster internet. If I had it, I could stream all my ridiculous gameplay to you guys – how much fun would it be to watch me kill Gavin while drunkenly playing Helldivers, or see my OCD approach to RPGs? Twitch is quickly overtaking other forms of media and streamers are becoming like celebrities. However, just like celebrities, it’s way too easy for their secrets to be exposed.

RandomRambo is a 24-year-old Danish CS:GO twitch streamer. He lives with his wife and son and plays games as a full-time job. He recently decided to take a screenshot of a game. When copying it into Paint, a vigilant viewer noticed something disturbing pop up. You can watch the video here.

The video continues to show his excuses for why a file with that name would appear. According to RR, he used to download a ton of porn off of emule and other file sharing sites. Somehow, this one made it into the mix and he claims that he deleted it and what you see on the screen is just a dead hyperlink.

The excuses just don’t add up. I have spent my fair share of time on the internet grabbing porn and yet never have I accidentally downloaded or viewed kiddy porn. As far as I can tell from crime reporting and awareness campaigns, child pornography is so highly illegal around the world that in order to gain access to it, you need to become a part of some sort of inner circle. Some people are even claiming it’s a troll file name title, but no one on file sharing would troll like that unless they liked getting raided by the police.

Realistically, even if he had downloaded the file in error years ago, surely in the two years since then when he’d start to type Paint and saw that link come up he would have removed it? Sometimes strange things get downloaded when you get files in bulk. However, kiddy porn is not one of those things, and if it is, someone would not only delete it, but also report it to the authorities so that it could be tracked down. It all seems mighty suspicious to me, and his excuses and demeanor when talking about it don’t help matters at all.

While everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and we shouldn’t try him in the court of public opinion, I definitely think he should open up his HDD to the authorities and let them confirm his assertions that he never did anything wrong. Maybe he’s a victim here, but child pornography should never be taken lightly.

Do you think there’s any excuse for why that file is there, or is this all just back pedaling after doing something he shouldn’t have?
