‘Stocks and Bonds’ streamer ‘TheStockGuy’ has been banned from Twitch as of November 9, and fans suspect that this development may have been due to him making fun of popular IRL streamer ‘Amouranth’ during a previous broadcast.

TheStockGuy went live in a stream on November 8, during which he created mock cleavage to mimic Amouranth.

“What’s that chick who always does this?” he asked his audience. “Amouranth, or whatever her name is? …I could make millions off of that, baby.”

He has since been banned from the platform, and his fans are blaming this punishment on what they call his ‘cosplay’ of Amouranth.

“TheStockGuy Banned After ‘Amouranth Cosplay,’ and now his account is gone,” one Reddit post said of the debacle.

Not every commenter was in agreement, though, as one user couldn’t fathom that TheStockGuy would be banned for such a joke.

“It’s because for the harassment policy in the TOS,” another user answered. “Can’t talk shit about other streamers.”

However, audiences have likewise suspected that the ban may have arisen due to TheStockGuy’s prank call to gaming development company Activision, citing Twitch’s stern actions against pranksters in past debacles.

This wouldn’t be the first time Amouranth has been at the center of controversy; the streamer was accused of faking her relationship to fans in late June of 2018, and claimed that she had even been doxxed because of the scandal.

Neither Amouranth nor TheStockGuy have yet to make a definitive statement as to the reason for the ban.

FaZe Clan reveal FaZe 5’s Top 100 finalists & next recruitment steps

FaZe Clan’s FaZe 5 recruitment is nearing its finale, as 95 of the final top 100 candidates have officially been revealed. Next, the community will be able to select the five remaining content creators before FaZe announces the top 100’s challenge on Monday, October 26.

Back in August, FaZe Clan set the gaming world ablaze with a #FaZe5 challenge that gives everyone a chance to sign up and compete to become one of five new recruits to the organization in 2020. 

After months of deliberations and countless submissions, FaZe have tried to trim the finalists down to a top 100 before moving on to the next round of the challenge. But, as it turns out, the deciders are struggling to finish off their list and want to enlist the public for some help.

In a brand-new, highly anticipated hype video, FaZe announced 95 finalists with submission videos and highlights overlaid on some heavy, uptempo electronic music. Then, FaZe CBass explains what’s next.

Unsurprisingly, the majority of the content creators who made the final cut seem to be avid gamers focused on Call of Duty, Fortnite, Valorant, and Apex Legends. But there is some diversity, as fans might notice some highlights of Fall Guys, but then also visual art, music, and even clothing design.

Some of Call of Duty: Warzone’s more successful streamers and competitors also made the cut, as Nio, SuperEvan, and WarsZ all made the top 95. It’s not all high-level FPS streamers though, as the FaZe boys appear to have cast a wide net for the newest batch of recruits.

Among the more interesting content creators who are reaching the next round, the six-year-old Rowdy Rogan and MontoyaTwinz (Mya and Myka Montoya) are easy standouts. (It remains unclear if the Montoyas would take up one or two spots if they get into the final five.)

After flying through 95 impressive candidates, CBass cuts in to let people know that the list is too hard to cap off. 

“Everything we’ve looked through, we’ve been impressed by. We’ve sat through and watched absolutely everything we can and the honest truth is that there are way more than 100 people who are deserving of moving on to the next round of this challenge.”

Since the boys in red, black, and white can’t choose the final five, they’re allowing the community to do so. If fans have a creator who didn’t make the top 100, but deserves to, then they just need to hashtag “FaZe5” on Twitter and tag said creator. Then, on Monday, October 26, the official top 100 and next steps will be announced.
