Popular League of Legends streamer, Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp, exposed one of his Twitch viewers who sent him a donation requesting to be unbanned from his chat.

Tyler1, who is known for his highly entertaining League of Legends gameplay, is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch with over 2.5 million followers on his channel.

However, as with many popular streamers on the platform, Tyler also constantly has to deal with viewers trolling him and writing inappropriate messages in his Twitch chat, which can often result in them getting suspended or banned from typing his channel.

Tyler1, alongside the help of his moderator team on Twitch, keeps track of all of his viewers bans and the reasons behind each one by using a log system to make sure that none of his fans are unfairly banned.

The LoL streamer often has requests from users to be unbanned through his donations, and when one viewer on August 7 asked Tyler1 to lift the suspension, he hilariously exposed what the viewer had been banned for.

The viewer, who goes by ikurokage, donated to Tyler1 claiming he was “very reformed” and that he would not “post anything naughty or bad in chat again” in the hopes that he would soon be free to type again.

When Tyler1 checked ikurokage’s ban logs though, he uncovered lines of different symbols which are commonly seen to be used in Twitch chat to display shapes when typing in chat.

The streamer quickly suspected that the viewer had been banned for posting a message in his chat, “You literally posted a c*ck, wait I’m pretty sure this is a c*ck.”

To see if his suspicions were correct, Tyler1 then exposed what the viewer had typed by entering the text in his own Twitch chat, before quickly siding with his mod’s decision of banning the viewer for the message, “Yeah it’s a c*ck, you’re not getting unbanned.”

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.
