FaZe Clan pro Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has returned to Twitch after a 14-day ban from the platform, as well as a two-week hiatus from YouTube.

The popular streamer had been banned from Twitch after all of his social media and content platforms were hacked in a highly publicized affair.


His YouTube channel, which had also been completely disabled, has now been restored after a two week period. 

Tfue took the opportunity to upload a video to the platform, giving major details as to his ban and journey thereafter.


In the beginning of the video, Tfue stated that he didn’t want to get into the Twitch ban, citing it as “stupid stuff… that wasn’t even bad.” Reports have stated that Tfue’s ban was due to his chat infiltrating a smaller stream that he hosted, making racist comments.

Tfue expressed that the 14-day period was rough on him and that he didn’t really know what to do with himself, and thus nabbed a one-way ticket to stay with the FaZe Clan in L.A.

“This whole thing was like a wakeup call. The last bans and the last hacks I could brush off, but this was bad, dude…. I can’t really blame Twitch.”

However, the ban also presented him with an opportunity to grind and improve himself.


“Usually, when I get banned, I like to take a break and just chill… this time, I’ve just been getting stuff done, aside from streaming – doing a little bit of self-work, working on the setup.”

He expressed gratitude to his fans, and announced that he would be creating more content, such as vlogging and IRL streaming. 

With Tfue now officially having moved into the FaZe team mansion, fans can expect more content and collaborations from the team very soon.


YouTuber Shiey hits out after strike against illegal train surfing video

YouTuber Shiey has hit out at YouTube after the platform decided to shut down his channel, for seemingly no obvious reason.

Shiey is a popular YouTuber with more than 1.3 million subscribers and has built up his following from posting hairraising videos of train surfing and dangerous physical feats. Lately, he has been uploading videos for his series in which he train surfs across Europe.


Part 1 and Part 2 of his Europe journey are still live on his YouTube channel, but Shiey recently tweeted that part 3 of the series had been taken down by YouTube because it violates the “harmful and dangerous” policy.

The removal of the video is part of YouTube’s strike system where a user is banned from uploading videos for two weeks if they violate the platform’s policy twice, and the channel is permanently removed after three strikes. Shiey says YouTube is currently preventing him from using his main channel.

Shiey tweeted a screenshot of the warning sent to him by YouTube and posted: “Interesting how they let other channels do the same thing, but not me,” and refuted the decision.

They added: “Btw part 3 was a 30 min video with 5 min of train stuff and 25 min of me walking ’round town with ice cream, camping, and swimming. Sick choice for takedown…”

YouTube does give creators the choice to appeal, which Shiey has done, but he claims that he hasn’t heard anything so far. He said that if he continued to be ignored, he would upload the entire journey as one video.


Shiey has created a back-up channel so viewers can still stay up to date with his content, to get around the strikes, and he is spreading the word in the comments on his main channel. He says he will be uploading every video that gets taken down by YouTube on the back-up.

Train surfing is illegal on most railways globally, not just because it involves skipping the fare, but because it is seriously life-threatening, whether that be from colliding with infrastructure, falling from a height, or getting electrocuted by a power supply.
