Was Ezekiel Elliot High During Twitch Stream?
Was Ezekiel Elliot high during a recent Twitch stream? That is the question many fans were left with, following his admission that he was “low-key faded.”
However, in a follow-up message on social media, Elliot insisted that he had actually simply had a few drinks. He also threatened Sports Illustrated with defamation for suggesting he was high.
According to him, SI misinterpreted what he said.
On the stream, Elliot could be heard saying, “Bro, I’m low-key faded, bro.”

Shortly thereafter, he seemed to realize or at the very least acknowledge he hadn’t ended his stream yet.
“Oh no, I didn’t even end my stream yet,” he added.
After Sports Illustrated ran a tweet calling Elliot “high,” he responded with an angry message accusing them of defamation.
“Actually I was referring to the few drinks I had which I said during the live stream,” he said.
“Doesn’t that make this defamation? You guys will be hearing from my lawyers @SInow.”
It will be interesting to see where this situation between Elliot and Sports Illustrated ultimately goes from here.
