BikiniBodhi claims he was hacked after Rainbow Six cheating ban

Rainbow Six Siege YouTuber BikiniBodhi has said that he was hacked, after receiving a permanent ban for cheating in Ubisoft’s hit FPS.

BikiniBodhi has become one of the game’s most popular content creators, amassing 1.44m subscribers on YouTube and regularly showing off his talents with new Operators and educating viewers on how to become top-tier players.

Now, though, he’s been banned for cheating — but has immediately responded by saying that his account was hacked and appears to be trying to get the situation sorted.

BikiniBodhi has become one of the biggest names in Siege.

The Swedish native, who is a streamer under Fnatic, appears to have woken up to the news on the morning of July 29, absolutely none the wiser to what was going on until he dug into it.

In a tweet he posted following the incident, BikiniBodhi told Ubisoft’s official support account that “my account was hacked while I was asleep and I was permanently banned for cheating, which obviously wasn’t me.”

In the screenshots provided, he shows several messages between himself and someone else, in which the other person says he thinks the account got “anti-cheat banned” and an implication that fellow content creator Macie Jay may have been hit, too.

The following screenshots were simply confirmation of his ban — an email and a graphic from Ubisoft themselves.

The graphic says that BikiniBodhi “breached our Code of Conduct” and that his account has “been permanently banned for Cheating.”

It also says that the ban is effective immediately and prevents him from participating in online content in Rainbow Six Siege.

In a follow-up tweet, Bikini says that someone in New York managed to bypass his two-factor authentication somehow and got him banned.

Apparently this isn’t a one-off incident, though, as pro player Kevin ‘Easilyy’ Skokowski responded saying that this has happened to multiple content creators and pro players already — meaning the situation could actually be much bigger than initially thought.

How Ubisoft respond to the incident remains to be seen. If BikiniBodhi is innocent, they will want to get ahead of the situation and reverse his ban, as well as look into how this could be happening, especially as it’s affecting so many top players.


Logan Paul wants to fight NHL pro Evander Kane after challenging Jake

YouTube sensation Logan Paul responded to a boxing challenge NHL pro Evander Kane issued to his brother, Jake, during the Impaulsive podcast.

Right after Jake scored a stunning knockout on former basketball player Nate Robinson, the San Jose Sharks left-winger sent a challenge Paul’s way, claiming he’s easy, get ‘wrecked.’

Now, one of the Paul brothers has seemingly accepted the challenge, but it wasn’t the one who Kane was expecting.

“San Jose Sharks? What is that exactly? Some sort of fish or aquatic animal who lives in San Jose?” Logan joked and read Kane’s original tweet. (Segment begins at 33:28)

“Put him on a list,” he remarked. “Does Jake Paul vs Evander Kane, is that a headline fight? How many buys does that get?”

While Jake’s last fight was on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s boxing return against Roy Jones JR, some could argue that Paul stole the show with his huge knockout that went viral on social media. It’s unclear if Kane would have the same star power as Robinson.

The podcast members agreed that the fight wouldn’t exactly be worthy of a headliner, but Logan Paul had an idea.

“Or does he just do it because he will get another fantastic f**king knockout? Is he even active?” Logan asked, inquiring about if Kane was still playing in the NHL. “Okay, so when is he going to train boxing? We’ll go through it again. I’ll put a quarter-million down this time.”

With Logan Paul down to step into the ring against Kane, all that was needed was a response by the forward, who wasted no time in accepting the invitation.

In a short eight-second video tweet, the Sharks player accepted the challenge quite confidently.

“Logan Paul, I’ll take the mop off your head and wipe the floor with you,” he said and proceeded to tag the YouTuber in the reply.

It’s unclear when or if this fight actually goes down, especially with Kane being active in the NHL, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. The NHL season is set to begin on January 1 at the earliest, but hopefully, the two can arrange for a fight in the following off-season.
