Trick2G is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch TV. While he is known for his wild antics, he might have taken this one a little to far in Twitch’s eyes. Trick2G has been banned for 4 months for faking a swat.
For those unfamiliar with swatting, it’s when a person calls in a fake crime in hopes of having a SWAT team show up at someone else’s house and raiding their home.
Shortly after, Team2G released this statement on the issue…
“To take that stream ending serious is absurd, Trick was laughing, the person used was NOT in disguise and was the same person who was on the stream all day yesterday setting up cameras and assisting the stream. The ending was scheduled for 3PM which again if thought process was used in any way, one would know that a swat team would not wait until the end of a stream to engage.
We don’t have to always be politically correct to have a sense of humor and we don’t have to hide the fact that we think something is funny simply because someone might not.”
A Twitch representative has since come forward and said that the ban is not permanent and won’t be for the full 4 months.
