Tfue bans viewers for being “toxic” to other streamers Ninja and 72hrs

FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has taken a no-nonsense approach to moderating his chat, banning viewers who are being toxic to other streamers, namely Ninja and Team Liquid’s 72hrs.

Just like any popular streamer, when you have tens of thousands of viewers chatting there’s always bound to be a few bad apples, but nothing that a ‘timeout’ or ban from the chat can’t solve.

Typically, viewers are banned for being ‘toxic’ or just generally rude to the streamer or other chatters, but Tfue is trying to help out the whole community by banning viewers who are toxic to other streamers entirely.

Toxicity between fans towards certain players is particularly common in the Fortnite community, due to the competitiveness between the top players, as fans pick their favorite between Tfue, Ninja and others.

Tfue clearly recognizes that this isn’t healthy for anyone, and so isn’t taking any prisoners in his own chat. 

When one fan said that “72hrs mods banned me for saying use code Tfue” – Tfue responded with simply “yeh that’s fucking toxic, I’m banning you from my chat too. You don’t go into other people’s chats and advertize for other streamers.”

The next day, another viewer came to Tfue’s chat simply to mock Ninja for having less viewers – and the FaZe Clan pro didn’t take kindly to this either:

“Shut the fuck up. Anyone that says that, ban them. [Ninja] just started his stream, has 5,000 more viewers than you’ll ever have, so shut the fuck up.”

If Tfue and other streamers, especially in the Fortnite community, can continue to stamp out immature behavior from fans who pit the popular players against each other, it will certainly be to the benefit of everyone.

Many streamers struggle and find themselves comparing their numbers to other streamers, and having fans rub it in too only makes matters worse. Fortnite, the most popular game on Twitch, is so saturated with streamers that it can be hard to stand out, and even harder if fans are attempting to create divides among the community.

Popular drama page TikTok Room delighted its 1.8 million followers this week when, on November 25, they announced on their Instagram that they would be hosting their very own awards show!

The post also announced that voting would be on Friday 27 November, with the awards then streaming tonight on Saturday 28 November.

Details surrounding what the award categories were was initially vague, with the account teasing more information throughout the week before opening the polls on Friday for fans to vote for some of their favorite TikTokers in various categories.

Among other famous faces like Skai Jackson, Nessa Barrett, and Jacob Sartorius, Sway House star Bryce Hall endorsed the awards in a video, joking that he was probably nominated in the “most problematic” category, while Charli D’Amelio, who recently reached 100k followers on the TikTok, told her fans that “there is a special award show on Sunday” and encouraged them all to vote.

Although some fans found that there was difficulty submitting their votes – with TikTok Room explaining in an Instagram post that this was due to heavy traffic on the form- by the time the polls were closed, TikTok Room announced that over 500,000 votes were cast after teasing fans earlier that day with just how close some of the categories were.
