Professional Fortnite Battle Royale player FaZe H1ghSky1’s Twitter account has become the latest of his social media channels to be suspended following the reveal that the player had lied about his age.
When H1ghSky originally signed with FaZe Clan to join their professional team, the organization stated that he was 13-years-old, which meant he was old enough to compete in tournaments and broadcast on Twitch.
However, after Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s lawsuit against FaZe stated that he had lied and was actually only 11 when he signed with the team, reports started to swirl that this claim was in fact accurate.
On Thursday, June 6, the 12-year-old admitted that he had lied about his age so that he could stream on Twitch and compete in Fortnite tournaments, stating that he “only lied so he could fulfill [his] dream.”
This revelation has had a severe effect on his career though, with fans of the star finding that his Twitter account had been banned.
There is no official word on why the account has been banned, but with Twitter’s terms of service stating that users must be at least 13 to use the site, it is highly likely that this is the reason for the ban. Dexerto have reached out to FaZe Clan for confirmation on the official reason.
The FaZe Clan star has already had his Twitch account shut down for being underage, so it comes as little surprise that his Twitter account has met the same fate.
The 12-year-old has started streaming on YouTube in the aftermath of his ban, but losing access to Twitter is another big blow to the content creator.
H1ghSky1’s decision to reveal his real age will also have a significant impact on his professional Fortnite career, as the confirmation that he is under 13-years-old rules him out of competing in the $30 million World Cup Finals, which the player had been attempting to qualify for.
