Leon ‘Khanada’ Khim, a competitive Fortnite player who recently joined Built By Gamers, saw his first YouTube broadcast shut down immediately after the former TSM pro searched for a new platform to stream for his Twitch account.
Khanada is running out of options when it comes to live streaming platforms. Built By Gamers’ latest high-profile recruit had built a lot of hype around his first YouTube stream, where he also announced that he wanted to join the organization.
With over 144,000 subscribers on YouTube, there were probably many viewers who would tune in, apart from the fact that the stream was inexplicably shut down for barely 25 minutes.
“Bro, I was just banned for nothing,”
At this point, it is not clear exactly what caused the problem that caused YouTube to shut down the broadcast. When you try to click on links that lead to it, users will now receive a message saying, “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.”
What makes things a little more confusing is that this seems to be the only content on Khanada’s YouTube page that has been taken down; dozens of other videos he has published in the last two years, continue to exist on the site along with the confirmation status.
“I actually missed streaming so much just for it to be snatched straight out of my hands,” Khim added on Twitter after appealing to YouTube’s head of gaming, Ryan ‘Fwiz’ Wyatt.
What the Fortnite player probably also refers to in the last tweet is the fact that not only did his attempt to stream on YouTube fail, but he also banned streaming on Twitch as well.
Back in September, the former TSM man was hit with an indefinite suspension, and after a lengthy appeal process, he revealed that Twitch had not come out of the original decision, saying that they “do not interrupt the accounts for this level of abuse. ”
The “abuse” they referred to stemmed from the original cause of the suspension. the platform believed that Khanada had “threatened”, despite his claims that there was only some rubbish talk in the game, and nothing he has done so far has managed to persuade them otherwise.
GGS will not be untrained and will go ahead of this then and see what I can do on other platforms pic.twitter.com/77p1hk3TNX
