The Twitch channel of Turner “Tfue” Tenney, one of the most popular Fortnite: Battle Royale players in the world, has been hit with another suspension or permanent ban.

Most notable as one of the top players in Fortnite and a popular entertainer for FaZe Clan, Tfue has run into issues over the past several months. The first came in the form of Epic Games banning his main Epic account for purchasing or selling accounts, which is prohibited in Epic’s EULA.

Another instance that caught the attention of many fans was his suspension from Twitch in May. The streaming platform suspended Tfue for 30 days after the FaZe star called an opposing player a “coon,” although Tfue maintains that he didn’t mean to say it in a “racist way.”

The latest incident occurred almost immediately after Tfue reached 30,000 subscribers on Twitch. The milestone was an obvious point of pride, but the 21-year-old likely won’t be able to celebrate the way he originally planned to.

Following the end of his broadcast, it’s unclear what exactly happened to warrant the channel ban. It’s been said by some Twitter users that Tfue sent his viewers to a smaller streamer’s channel and the viewers spammed racial slurs, which prompted the streamer to report Tfue.

Another rumor is that the ban is related to Tfue’s ongoing feud with multiple-time Summer Skirmish champion Vivid, although this hasn’t been confirmed.

It’s likely that Tfue will release a video on YouTube or address the situation on Twitter, but he hasn’t done either at the time of writing. We’ll update this article when more information on the situation becomes available.

Update Aug. 23 6:26pm CT: Tfue’s YouTube channel has seemingly been deleted as well. There still has been no public comment by Tfue.

Update Aug. 24 3:43pm CT: Tfue and his father have both confirmed on social media that Tfue’s Twitch and YouTube channels were taken down as a result of a hacker.
