Dallas Cowboys superstar running back Ezekiel Elliott made news this week for a viral video where he admitted that he was ‘low-key faded’ during a Livestream Twitch video with fans that he didn’t know was still recording.
You can hear Elliott mutter to someone off-camera ‘I’m low-key fadedddd, bro’ and then when the person responds back saying ‘are you?’, Elliott then says ‘Oh nooo, I didn’t even end my stream yet’ before the video cuts out.
‘Faded’ is often American slang meaning drunk, although Elliott took exception on Twitter when he called out Sports Illustrated for running with a story that said he was ‘high’ on marijuana.
Elliott tweeted ‘Actually I was referring to the few drinks I had which I said during the live stream. Doesn’t that make this defamation? You guys will hearing from my lawyers @SInow’, however would later delete the tweet, and Sports Illustrated would offer an apology on the original article error.
Elliott has become a mainstay on the popular livestream app, updating fans last week on his health status after testing positive for the coronavirus, and being a mainstay on the online first-person shooter game ‘Call of Duty: Warzone.’
