Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar is used to being roasted by his friends on Twitch — but he probably didn’t expect US rapper T-Pain to get in on the action, too, and Tim found the whole ordeal hilarious.

In recent years, T Pain has become more and more of a prominent figure in the Twitch community, regularly getting involved with top streamers and creating some fun content.

He’s also become well-renowned on the platform for his rap intros, dropping some heat as the fans come piling in, but more recently he decided to take some friendly shots at Tim after being hosted by him — and, of course, Tim caught wind of it.

While some big names might not be able to handle the banter all that well, Tim absolutely loves it, and apparently it’s no different when you’re being roasted by a Grammy-winning recording artist, either.

T-Pain has been steadily growing his audience on Twitch.

As soon as he switched his stream on, Tim was sent the clip of T-Pain roasting him from when he hosted him the night before, so reacted to it for everyone to see.

“It’s amazing that he goes live so early. Like, before I wake up,” the rapper said. “And every time I click on his sh*t, he’s eating. Just eating some salads. So that’s fine.”

Although it seemed like it was going to end on a positive note, T-Pain continued: “Good job Tim, sticking with the salads. I’m really questioning if they’re salads. He’s always got his food right out of frame… but thank you [for the host], I really appreciate that man.”

Obviously, the roast is all in good spirits, and you can see Tim’s reactions varying throughout the clip. He starts off laughing before simply saying “oh come on, bro” as T-Pain speculated about the legitimacy of his salads, but once again finds himself in hysterics as he gets mocked.

There’s definitely no bad blood between the two, and to his credit, T-Pain probably has a lot more in the locker if he really wanted to go in on Tim, but we don’t doubt Tim could give as good as he gets, too.

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
