Tfue who is one of the best Fortnite players in the world and currently the most famous Twitch streamer was caught by fans using the N-word while playing Minecraft on his stream.
Turner was playing Minecraft with some of his friends after grinding Fortnite and started to curse some Minecraft zombies, accidentally letting slip the N-word. “You guys f***ing killed all the villagers, man. Y’all mother****ers killed them n**gas.”

This isn’t the first time Turner has used a racial slur during streaming. In the past Tfue had received a ban for calling a player ‘coon’, a derogatory word used for black people for which he received a 30-day ban. He also received another ban when his chat was rude and toxic to another streamer.
His brother confirmed the news telling his fans he was banned for his chat being toxic towards another streamer. After the ban was over Tfue said: “I got banned on Twitch for just some stupid, stupid stuff that I did.”
Twitch has a ‘three strikes’ rule, meaning after two temporary bans, the third is permanent. According to Twitch guidelines: “After two strikes, the next violation will result in an indefinite suspension, but some severe violations will result in an indefinite suspension on the first violation.”
Twitch has yet to issue a statement regarding the matter, whether Turner will face a temporary ban, permanent ban or no action will be taken. However, if Twitch’s recent actions are any indication, regarding its bigger streamers being given preferential treatment, it seems unlikely that Tfue, who has 7 million followers, will face a ban.
