Former Counter-Strike pro and current Battle Royale streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek and variety streamer Lirik reacted to the thirty day Twitch ban of Tuner ‘Tfue’ Tenney.

Shroud calls the 30 day ban (which has now been reduced to only 7) “weird” and proposes a new reprimanding system for Twitch.

Tfue received the ban from Twitch for using a banned word on stream that some viewers interpreted as a derogatory term.

Tfue would later explain that it was not an intentional slur or meant in a derogatory manner.

After reviewing the situation Shroud explains that 30 days is extreme and says that Twitch “needs to have some sort of consistency.”

Shroud would like to see new consistent guidelines that thoroughly cover “when this happens this is the ban you get, this is your punishment.”

Shroud gives Tfue the benefit of the doubt and says that “a ban is fine” and then suggest the length should have been much shorter, perhaps a 1 day ban if this is the first offense.

It is worth noting that the 30 day ban Tfue received has been reduced to a 7 day ban.

Another popular stream, Saqib “Lirik” Zahid, tweeted out his opinion on the ban as well.

Lirik makes a strong argument about growing a stream on twitch and weighs in on the controversy of the matter.

Lirik reiterated in a second tweet that he, like Shroud, would give Tfue the benefit of the doubt.

Twitch is one of the net’s most popular live streaming platforms, and rightfully so; the site is home to a slew of hilarious and shocking moments that happen in real-time, from everything to doors falling on unlucky streamers in the middle of video games to viewers rescuing streamers’ trapped cats.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
