Professional Fortnite player and content creator, Tfue, had his Twitch channel banned on August 23 just hours after reaching 30,000 subscribers.

*Update – He was unbanned on September 6*

The face of the FaZe Clan Fortnite team has had his fair share of controversy since blowing up in popularity in 2018, including bans on both his Twitch channel and in-game courtesy of Epic Games.

Tfue’s latest ban on Aug 23 remained a mystery for some time, with speculation ranging from his chat posting racist comments when he hosted someone, through to a hacker gaining access and shutting it down.

It was finally worked out that Tfue received a some time ban for saying “I have aids” while on stream that fateful night.

His Dad later confirmed via his Instagram page that he’d been suspended by Twitch for using one of their 1600 banned words.

It was later confirmed by Tfue’s teammate, Cloazky, that he will be unbanned on Tuesday, September 4.

At the time of writing it’s not currently confirmed what time he’ll be going live on his channel if the ban is lifted.

After traveling back from competing at the Summer Skirmish event at PAX West in Seattle, it’s unlikely he’ll be live until late on in the day if it is possible.

After an onslaught of hateful comments, David Dobrik has responded to the backlash he faced for claiming that he “hates nature” on his Views podcast with Jason Nash.

As a huge YouTuber known for massive giveaways and wholesome content, Dobrik’s comments, if at all negative, can cause a stir among his fans. In the episode in question, Dobrik explains at length why he “hates nature,” and how outdoor activities really don’t do it for him.

“I cannot describe to you how much I f***ing hate nature,” Dobrik said. “I never knew I could be so angry at something. I was hiking in the mountains, and everybody I saw, I was just getting angry at. I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ I was so mad!”

“It feels so wrong because everybody loves nature,” he continued. “…what is so cool about something that’s been there… for millions of years! What is so cool about that? …it feels like everything I’ve worked for has been erased. I’m stuck with the dirt and the grass and the leaves.”

Angry commenters described Dobrik as “close-minded”

Angry commenters had a lot to say about his opinions on the world around him and on his attitude about something as mundane as nature.

“I don’t justify it, but now I understand the hate that you get for being so closed-minded and kind of a d**k to your friends or the planet,” one person wrote. “I know that you have done great things like charities and donations. But DUDE, grow up a bit, you live in a bubble.”

But in the latest episode of Views with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash, they discussed the backlash Dobrik faced and read out Dexerto’s article on the subject.

Dobrik explained that fans misunderstood his intentions: “I said I didn’t like nature and by this, I didn’t mean that I don’t care about the ecosystem where I think you shouldn’t recycle and I think you should litter. It was like I just literally do not care for walks.”

“I wasn’t joking about the actual nature but I was kind of like you guys are gonna really hate me for this. I didn’t think people would actually get mad and people are pissed.”

Since the latest episode has aired, angry commenters are nowhere to be seen. It seems that the adamant defenders of nature walks have been appeased.
