As two of the most popular live streamers, Tyler1 and ICE_POSEIDON are both known for being somewhat controversial, and some may expect the pair to be perfect partners for a duo stream.

Both Tyler1 and ICE_POSEIDON have served bans from Amazon owned platform Twitch for previous transgressions, with the latter now permanently streaming on YouTube after Twitch banned him indefinitely.

Tyler1 recently returned to Twitch following his lengthy ban, and has become noticeably more calm compared to his previous pre-ban self.

ICE_POSEIDON has even recently been told his voice is not permitted to be heard on any Twitch channel, after he attempted to compete in KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament, and his teammate (who was streaming on Twitch) was instructed to mute ICE’s voice.

Some have labelled Tyler1 and ICE_POSEIDON the ‘provocateurs’ of Twitch and YouTube, calling them “notoriously toxic”.

When asked if he would join ICE_POSEIDON during one of his infamous ‘IRL’ (In Real Life) streams, Tyler1 explained in no uncertain terms why that is very unlikely.

“ICE said he want to hang out? Yeah… – ICE is fine.

But, the other autistic people – and I’m all for being completely fucking autistic – but being absolutely barbarian autistic, with eight other people – ahh, I don’t know about that.”

It sounds like the duo fans have been waiting for is not on the cards then, at least not for an officially arranged occasion.

The pair have previously appeared on stream together as both were present at TwitchCon in 2017, although this was merely a chance meeting.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
