Long time Twitch streamer Mohamad “m0E” Assad has been handed an indefinite ban from the platform, resulting from his reported use of a homophobic slur.

Amazon-owned website Twitch has been cracking down recently on what it calls “hateful conduct”, having issued a similar ban to another popular streamer “Destiny” in recent days.

m0E, best known for streaming a variety of games including CS:GO and Fortnite, and was previously a professional Counter-Strike player gained popularity (or notoriety – depending on who you ask) for his often rage-filled broadcasts.

He is a charismatic character and so it is no wonder he has attracted many loyal fans, but in equal measure has his detractors, who m0E has suggested started a “witch hunt” resulting in his ban.

m0E was open in his admission of using the homophobic term in a recent apology posted to Twitter, saying he had made efforts to curb using the word, as it had become a habit of sorts. 

He has now deleted this apology tweet after it received considerable backlash, which he says surprised him.

On July 1st, m0E posted the message he received from Twitch confirming his ban, followed up by a string of posts explaining his disgruntlement at the decision.

Surprisingly, m0E also posted the clip which has apparently led to his ban. He explains that he wants to stop saying the word, but also that it is “one of his favorite words of all time.”

Considering Twitch’s recent crackdown, it is unsurprising m0E was eventually banned for the contents of the clip, regardless if it was brought the website’s attention due to the “witch hunt” as he suggests.

*Update – m0E has now posted on Twitter stating that it is a 30 day ban, presumably having been in contact with Twitch, but says he still doesn’t view the ruling as fair.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
