    Streaming is a titan in gaming entertainment nowadays. And with entertainment, comes controversy. Sometimes it's brought on by hateful internet trolls and in rare cases... it's self-inflicted.


    Swatting is no laughing matter, and it only continues to happen day by day. Quite frankly, it's amazing what kind of issues we have to deal with in the gaming medium now, between this, DDOS attacks, and other forms of malicious attack all for the sake of entertainment.

    UPDATE: Unfortunately, his ban was lifted early.

    I assume that's the wrong link? It's certainly not a Twitch statement, at least.

    His channel is hosting someone at the moment, he's not actually streaming. However it would appear his ban was lifted early.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Ban took place August 3rd. Doing some digging, the ban was lifted 3 days ago.

    That being said, the point of the article is to bring some awareness to Swatting, and the effect it has on people. The fact that he WASN'T banned for his full time, is absolute BS, and he should still be banned for the stupid joke.

    Swatting is no laughing matter.

    Either way, OP updated for clarity's sake.

    Don't get why people are so salty over this he's an entertainer some people found it funny others didn't. As soon as it happened you could tell how fake and planned it all was, he was even laughing and slapped one of the "officers".

    he didn't swat himself. he had a friend pretend to swat him. no actual police agents were involved. no problem IMO.

    So it's not okay to have your buddies dress up in costumes and fool around on camera? Why don't you try a little harder to find something worth while to write about

    You see, I think the issue wasn't the joke itself, it's the timing of the joke. People are more than likely getting upset over how soon he started making jokes about the situation verses say waiting a bit longer. That's actually a real issue when being an entertainer, how soon is too soon?

    Away from this shithole
    "it's just harmless entertainment hurrdurr"

    I can't believe how stupid some people here turned out to be. Not that I'm surprised, we are talking about some kid being an ass while playing games as "entertainment" nowadays.

    You see, humor is subjective and it still boils down to timing, just ask Gilbert Gottfried.

    Pretty much, some people laugh about kittens getting kicked some people find it repulsing.

    What twitch needs to do is perma ban those cam whores on twitch. They're giving a real bad name to real girl streamers that are trying to represent themselves
