Tfue pulls off xQc’s famous foot-smash rage after annoying Fortnite death

Fortnite superstar Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney pulled a move out of fellow popular streamer Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel’s book when raging following a frustrating death.

As fun as Fortnite may be for a lot of people, it’s definitely not lacking when it comes to rage-inducing moments.

No matter if you’re one of the best players in the world or someone who plays casually, you’re bound to catch yourself boiling in anger at the game from time to time.

This even happens to some of the biggest Fortnite streamers, like Tfue, who can sometimes be so filled with rage at something in the game that they forget thousands of people are watching them live.

In a recent stream, Tfue found himself on the wrong end of a gunfight in Fortnite, and the anger that followed says all you need to know about what he thought of the situation.

“What the f*ck man?!” the star streamer yelled. “Why are there two f*cking guys waiting for me outside the storm bro?”

However, what caught the viewers’ attention was not what he said but rather what he did. Midway through the yelling, he leaned back in his chair, lifted his legs in the air and slammed them on his table.

It didn’t take long for viewers to recognize the move as xQc’s infamous foot-smash that the Overwatch star had done a few months earlier while also raging at Fortnite.

While the origins of the move may not be known, it was certainly popularized by xQc, who’s done it a number of times during his countless spells of rage on his own stream.

While it’s unclear whether or not Tfue knew he was copying xQc’s rage technique, but it’s more likely that he did, considering how similar it was and the fact that it happened while playing the same game.

There’s no doubting xQc’s status as one of the more entertaining streamers to watch get angry at video games, so this is probably not the last we’ve seen of his infamous foot-smash move.

Twitch accused of hypocrisy after permanently banning streamer for their account age

After streamer AverageHarry was permanently banned because his account was created when he was under 13, Twitch viewers have pointed out that other streamers in a similar position have not faced the same consequences.

Twitch regularly faces scrutiny over their moderation decisions and bans for streamers, which often spark confusion over what exactly the rules allow.

The DMCA drama from October left many big streamers stripping their channels of content in fear of a takedown, and Twitch’s TOS policy change that restricted the use of words like ‘simp’ left streamers in fear of breaking the rules unintentionally.

15-year-old streamer AverageHarry was denied Twitch partnership earlier in January due to the fact that he made his account before the age of 13, after waiting 72 days for a response to his application.

While that was already a pretty tough blow, things were made worse when, on January 23, he was perma-banned. He clarified on Twitter that: “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

But now Twitch users are noticing some inconsistencies in Twitch’s decision to ban Harry, as popular streamers, with millions of followers, also made their account when under 13 – but have not faced bans.

One user pointed out that hugely popular 16-year-old streamer TommyInnit had his account when he was only 11, but has not faced the same issues in terms of partner status and bans. The user called it “gross hypocrisy” from Twitch.

Another commenter pointed out that several Fortnite streamers are all in a similar position, with some of them having likely started their accounts when they were under the age of 13. Streamer ONSCREEN highlighted a list of streamers with millions of followers, all of whom made accounts when younger than 13 – some as young as 10.

If Twitch followed through on bans for all of the streamers who made their account when they were below 13, even if they have since surpassed that age, it would certainly spell bad news for a lot of large communities on the site.

However, it is also possible that there are conditions within the Twitch TOS that are accounting for these discrepancies, meaning some streamers are still permitted to keep their account according to the rules, even if they made their account before the age of 13.

The reason for the 13-year-old age limit is linked to COPPA laws, which aim to protect young people online. In 2019, Google and YouTube had to pay a record $170 million to settle allegations of COPPA laws.

Harry revealed that he only signed up for Twitch two months before he turned 13, saying: “I spent 2 years and nearly 2000 hours streamed just for it to be taken away because I signed up 2 months early.”

Fans of Harry are now looking to Twitch for answers regarding the confusing situation.

AverageHarry makes new Twitch account

As he was allowed to do, AverageHarry has now made a new Twitch account, and asked for his fans to follow him there.

Within 24 hours of opening the account, he has already accrued 3,700 followers, and will be gunning to hit five figures soon. But, getting back to his original 90,000 will prove a challenge.
