Popular Swedish Twitch streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors has reacted to the news of the European Parliament’s approval of Article 13 by suggesting he may leave Europe.

The European Parliament met on Tuesday, March 26 and voted in favor of Article 13 and Article 11, which directly affects copyright regulation on the internet.

Article 13, which has been renamed Article 17 following the successful vote, has been incredibly unpopular among the online community, as many believe it will greatly impede the use of the open internet. The new regulations will require commercial sites and applications to have licenses for any copyrighted material uploaded to their site, whether it was uploaded by the company itself or by users.

Florian Mueller / TwitterProtests have been held across Europe campaigning against Article 13.

While many in the music industry are excited to see this introduced, the online streaming community is not, and Forsen has made his distaste clear by telling his stream that he is considering moving to escape Article 13.

When asked if he has a solution to Article 13 and avoiding the regulations that it may impose, Forsen gave another self-explanatory answer.

“Just move,” the former Starcraft pro told his fans. “Just move. Move out of the EU.”

While discussing the regulations, a member of his chat told him he should rent Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris’ house in Austin, Texas, to which Fors replied: “It’s not easy getting a work visa in the [United] States, so I might have to pull some favors and that will kind of decide where I live.”

The fact that getting the visa may prove to be an issue hasn’t appeared to deter the Swede, who went on to tell his viewers: “I might move to the [United] States.”

Many major websites could be affected by Article 13, including YouTube, Reddit, Twitter and Twitch. Google have stated that the final version of Article 13 that went through parliament was “an improvement,” but they remain concerned as it could still have “unintended consequences that may harm Europe’s creative and digital economy.”

It seems that Forsen won’t be affected though, as he plans to set sail for greener pastures should these issues arise.

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
