FaZe Clan’s Fortnite Captain Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore has confirmed that teammate Tfue will be unbanned from Twitch on Tuesday, September 4.

The popular streamer and professional Fortnite player was originally banned on Thursday, August 23, just hours after reaching 30,000 subscribers on Twitch.

Speaking while live on Twitch, Cloak confirmed that Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney would be returning to the streaming platform soon, stating;

“Why did Tfue quit Fortnite? He didn’t quit Fortnite, he’s just banned right now and he gets unbanned on Tuesday. Nor did he quit streaming.”

Originally, it was unknown what Tenney was banned for, with some rumors suggesting it due to his chat using racist language while he hosted another streamer and others saying he had been hacked again.

However, his father recently confirmed via Instagram that he was banned due to a remark he made while broadcasting, where he joked “I have aids”.

This isn’t the first time Tfue has been forced to take time away from Twitch. Back in May he was banned for seven days for using offensive language and he’s also had issues with hackers, who shut down down his Twitch, YouTube and other social media accounts.

Fans of Tfue will still be able to see their favorite Fortnite player, as Tenney is competing in the Fortnite Summer Skirmish event at PAX WEST, which kicks off on Friday, August 31.

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie Kjellberg defended Elon Musk during his October 18 upload. The Swedish star hit out at those getting upset over the Tesla CEO’s viral meme about changing the price of the Model S.

The one thing PewDiePie and Elon Musk have in common is their love of memes. The YouTube star even had the tech giant host an episode of his popular Meme Review show back in 2019 that has over 26 million views.

The Tesla CEO faced backlash from critics in October after tweeting that the Model S price was being changed to $69,420. The YouTuber defended the billionaire during his latest upload, and argued that people can’t take a joke.

PewDiePie defends Elon Musk’s Model S meme

During his October 18 episode of Last Week I Asked You, Pewds addressed the criticism Elon Musk received from some over a tweet he made on October 14 about the Model S price change.

“I saw some people being so butthurt over this. It’s like, dude, it’s just a joke. I’m sure Elon knows it’s ironic,” he said, before he jokingly imitated critics in a baby voice. “So childish, he’s like a 12-year old! … Yeah, that’s the joke! Ever hear of fun?”

The creator then applauded the CEO for being attuned to meme culture: “You just want another overweight, gray-haired, boomer billionaire? I don’t. I think we have enough of that!”

The tweet that PewDiePie was referencing was made on October 14 when Musk posted, “The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled. Model S price changes to $69,420 tonight!”

The joke exploded on the social media platform, instantly going viral with over 330k likes and 35k retweets. While many found the meme to be hilarious, some critics hit out at the CEO for being irresponsible with the company’s prices.

This isn’t the only time PewDiePie has defended Elon. In past uploads, the 30-year-old has admitted to viewers that he’s admired the tech CEO for his innovations while still being wired into internet culture.

With Kjellberg being so fond of the tech giant, maybe the Tesla owner will someday return as a guest host on Meme Review. Maybe the Swede could also convince the billionaire to show up for a round of Among Us – now that would be entertainment gold.
