She can sing, she can act, and now Keke Palmer is showing the world she can body her opponents in Tekken 7.
This week, the singer and actress who received accolades for her role in Nope, joined Twitch to the delight of the internet. Palmer, who goes by itskekebabii(Opens in a new tab) on the live streaming platform, went live this past week while making corn chowder and playing The Sims 4. But the best stream so far shows Palmer playing the latest version of the classic hand-to-hand combat game Tekken.

Palmer’s fighting skills are solid, but the most entertaining part is her fired-up commentary and shit-talking. Wearing a Chicago Bulls jersey and electric blue-framed glasses, she started off playing with the character Julia Chang, but quickly got dominated by Leroy Smith. “C’mon now miss mama we can’t go down like that,” yelled Palmer, before declaring “It’s her, I’m done with her,” after three K.O.s in a row. Then Palmer switched to Ling Xioyu and started to get into the groove. “That’s why you’re ugly and don’t nobody want you and why your breath stinks,” raged Palmer to the King character wearing a steampunk bird mask. “You’re going to jail and you’re going to hell.”
After that last intense round, Palmer let out a sigh saying, “You guys, the way that I’m sweating right now.” Honestly, everything that came out her mouth was pure gold. Here are just a few of the choice words Palmer had for her opponents:
“Who do you think you are? Alexander Graham Bell?”
“I hate you for what you did to my family and everything you did to my father. You will rue the day that you ever came into this world.”
“Finish his ass, doll”
Palmer ended the stream after losing a particularly close match. But not before promising her commenters she’ll play Mortal Kombat next. We can’t wait, Keke Palmer.
