Popular Fortnite pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is in the middle of a heated legal battle with esports giant FaZe Clan – a battle that saw young pro Highsky1’s social media accounts disabled across the board.

Tfue’s lawsuit against FaZe claimed that Highsky1 had only been eleven years old at the time of signing with the group, contrary to FaZe’s announcement that he was a 13-year-old Fortnite prodigy.

H1ghsky1 himself later admitted this fact, explaining that he’d lied about his age in order to pursue his dreams, which resulted in him losing access to his Twitch, Twitter, and even Instagram accounts.

While many accused Tfue of being responsible for the debacle, Tfue himself remained quiet on the subject, until YouTube celebrity news outlet The Hollywood Fix caught up to him for an interview.

In their video on the topic, Tfue admits that he “feels bad” about H1ghsky1’s bans, and had even looked into speaking with Twitch about lowering their age requirements for streaming.

“That whole situation I can’t really go too in depth about,” he began. “I do feel bad about the situation. I was looking into trying to maybe lower the age – the minimum age requirements for Twitch, maybe.”

Tfue went on to clarify that he wanted Highsky1’s Twitch account to be reinstated, hoping to lower the minimum age to twelve – h1ghsky1’s current age.

That wasn’t the only drama Tfue spoke out on, either; he likewise divulged some information regarding his strained relationship with FaZe co-owner Ricky Banks, who’d lashed out in anger after Tfue’s lawsuit went live.

“I’ve been taking some time off to clear my head, and figure out all this stuff from a business side of things,” he said of their friendship. “They [FaZe] sent me a bunch of contracts, but…”

“You weren’t really feeling any of them, though,” the interviewer continued, prompting a “Yeah” from Tfue.

Tfue’s statement follows the reinstatement of H1ghsky1’s Instagram account, which saw a video of the youngster uploaded to Twitter, showing him running about the Clout House in joy despite their ongoing legal troubles.

Tfue is one of Twitch’s most popular content creators, boasting over six million followers on the platform as of June 18.


Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
