Controversies

In May 2018, Tenney was banned from Twitch for 30 days after saying an alleged racial slur. Twitch reversed the ban after reviewing the word wasn’t used racially.

On July 2, 2018, Tenney received a permanent account ban on his Epic Games accounts because he was selling and buying Epic Games accounts, which is prohibited by Epic Games’ terms and conditions.[8] A week later, Tenney was banned from Twitch again, this time for 14 days, for unknown reasons.

On May 20, 2019, Tenney filed a lawsuit against FaZe Clan, claiming they “pressured Tenney to live in one of its homes in Los Angeles, pressured him to underage drinking and illegal gambling. FaZe also continuously pressured and encouraged him to engage in dangerous stunts.” Tenney also claimed, that “he only got 20% from any branded videos that are published on Twitch, YouTube or social media and half of his revenue from touring and appearances.” FaZe Clan responded on Twitter, saying they didn’t take any money from his tournament winnings, Twitch and YouTube revenue and his social media. They also said that they “took $60,000 from his branded videos” and offered Tenney “an improved contract multiple times, with 100% of the money going to Tenney, but he rejected or ignored all of them.”

On August 1, 2019, FaZe Clan filed a federal lawsuit in New York suing Tenney, claiming Tenney violated his contract by disparaging the company and trying to form a rival esports organization. The organization also claims that Tenney directly leaked confidential information about his contract to media publications, violating their terms.

On September 2, 2019, Tenney again said a racial slur while streaming, but Twitch did not ban him.

On April 25, 2020, Tenney competed in a rock, paper, scissors charity tournament hosted by Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson. During Tenney’s stream of the tournament, he accidentally revealed MrBeast’s phone number and code for the tournament contestants. The stream had to be taken down momentarily before return which Tenney quickly lost. Tenney apologized but received criticism from many people including Tyler “Ninja” Blevins. Tenney responded by calling Ninja a “pussy” during a rant on stream.
