Report: Ninja Feels The Recent Ban Of A Content Creator Is Too Harsh Because It Affects His Livelihood
Astute Fortnite fans may be aware that recently a popular Fortnite YouTuber, Faze Jarvis, was banned from the game by Epic for using cheat software -- specifically an aimbot. The ban, as it turns out is a permanent one and some people feel that might be a bit much.
As one would expect, Epic's response has drawn the attention of other content creators who have weighed in on the topic. Not surprisingly, one of those is popular Fortnite streamer Ninja, who during a stream expressed his opinion that the punishment may have been too harsh. Part of his argument is that Faze Jarvis is young and did something stupid, but that he feels the punishment is too harsh for a few additional reasons. Some of those reasons, like it being a first offense, seem reasonable enough. However, some of the argument stems from the fact that the person being punished is a content creator.
According to the conversation on the stream, Ninja feels there should be some consideration for content creators because being banned from the game they create most of their content from affects how they make money. As you can hear in the video below, part of the difference, according to Ninja, is that when a regular player is banned it really has no impact on them since they can just create a new account and continue playing. The same can't be said for content creators.
Ninja also went on to argue that there's already an existing standard for creators being allowed to get away with things that the average person may not -- such as Logan Paul's Japan forest incident.
Obviously, the whole thing is drawing scrutiny from... well... a lot of people. Those interested can watch the video in full below.
