Streamer PayMoneyWubby slams Twitch over confusing ban

Popular content creator PayMoneyWubby has been struck down with a Twitch suspension for streaming while inside a restaurant despite apparently having permission to do so. 

IRL (in-real-life) streaming on Twitch comes with the dangers of being at the mercy of other members of the public. Random passers-by could call something out that’s regarded as a rule violation and then the streamer’s left with the consequences.

Yet, sometimes, Twitch can strike down the banhammer for some other reason – leaving the streamer confused by what’s happened. That fate fell on PayMoneyWubby, a popular broadcaster – with near 200,00 followers on Twitch – as well as over 627,000 subscribers on YouTube.

Following his IRL stream on November 15, the American streamer revealed that he had been banned by the livestreaming platform.

Not sure the full reasoning yet but something to do with privacy(?),” he tweeted, before noting that he had “full permission from the manager prior to coming.” The streamer also noted that he was “super confused” by what had happened. 

It didn’t take long for him to follow up, however, with Twitch sending through that all-important suspension email a few hours later.

PayMoneyWubby revealed that his channel had been suspended for two weeks before taking aim at Twitch support. “Holy s**t @TwitchSupport, please fact check before pulling the trigger,” he added. The streamer also doubled down on his permission claims by posting in the Livestream Fail subreddit post about his ban

Plenty of the streamer’s fans tweeted him and urged him to consider moving to Mixer, but considering his huge following on YouTube, following in the footsteps of Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop and streaming on there could be an option instead. 

As of writing, the streamer’s channel is still suspended so it remains to be seen if Twitch will take his response into account and wipe the ban out, giving him an early return to streaming.

Ninja, TheGrefg, Loserfruit & Lachlan assemble for historic Fortnite Icon stream

Ninja, Loserfruit, Lachlan, and TheGrefg are the mega popular streamers behind Fortnite’s first batch of Icon Series skins and all four of them just grouped up for a historic livestream.

January 16 marked the reveal of Fortnite’s first Icon Series skin. Ninja kicked things off with the new line of streamer-based skins. Fans had been eager to play as their favorite personalities in-game for years, and the Icon Series would pave the way for just that.

Loserfuit came next in June 2020. Followed by Lachlan in November 2020 and most recently, Grefg in January 2021. With all four now out in the wild, the streamers responsible all joined forces for a history Fortnite session.

Grefg and Ninja were the first two in the lobby.

“It was your free day right?” Grefg asked Ninja, who wasn’t intending to go live on January 17. “Correct,” Ninja responded. “But I couldn’t pass up this opportunity.”

Both Lachlan and Loserfruit had to make some sacrifices for the special moment as well. They were both playing from Australia on 220 ping but were more than happy to do so for the huge occasion.

All four players dropped into their first match wearing their respective Icon Series skins. It marked the first time in Fortnite history that they were all in the same lobby, let alone on the same team.

“Alright guys, this is an ‘iconic’ moment,” Ninja said as all four icons gathered to heal up. “Everyone has their own skin,” Lachlan followed up. “That’s crazy to think about.” 

Collectively the squad boasts over 57 million subscribers on YouTube, with millions more supporting them across Twitch, Twitter, and other platforms. It’s undeniably one of the biggest powerhouse teams to ever drop into a game of Fortnite.

Naturally, their first game together was an emphatic win.

Not only did they get the victory with ease, but they even taunted their final enemy. Boxing the last player in and emoting at the same time to add insult to injury.

Given the time zone differences and the ping difference between them, it’s likely this is a one-off spectacle.

When future Icon Series skins are added, we could see new star-studded quads joining forces. But for now, this will go down as the most iconic Fortnite team yet.
