Sickening footage of a high-profile gamer losing his temper and seemingly attacking his girlfriend while being live-streamed has earned him the sack.
Li Weijun, who became famous in gaming circles under his username Vasilii, reportedly flew into a rage after losing an online contest.
When his girlfriend urged him to calm down, he responded by screaming 'f*** your mother in Mandarin, asking her: "Are you looking for a beating?"
He also shouted "I would kill you right now", appearing to flip a table as his girlfriend screamed.
The alleged violence happened off camera, but Li's girlfriend later released a statement denying he had hit her.
Li, 23, has been sacked by his team because of the terrifying outburst, and damning footage could end his career.
