Streaming star Tfue appeared to use a racial slur while broadcasting earlier this week, but so far, Twitch hasnt taken any action against the Fortnite streamer.
During a stream on Tuesday, Tfuewhose real name is Turner Tenneywas playing Minecraft when he appeared to blurt out, You guys fucking killed all the villagers, man. Yall motherfuckers killed them [N-word]. You can suck my pee pee, man.

But as of Thursday morning, his Twitch page, which is followed by nearly 7 million people, is still active. Tenney deleted the offending video, and at this point, it doesnt appear that hes going to be punished for his potential violation of Twitchs guidelines.
Twitch doesnt comment on individual streamers and declined to comment on this particular matter to the Verge.
Tenney, though, has been punished for his use of a racial slur before. In 2018, Twitch banned him for 30 daysafter he said Where did this c**n go? during a stream. He was later banned again, and though it was unclear what exactly he had done, he was punished, in his own words, for just some stupid, stupid stuff that I did.
Since it appears Tenneywho recently over a contract disputewill remain unscathed for this incident, its fair for others to wonder why hes avoiding punishment while they faced a ban for something similar.
Pink Ward was given in June after Twitch determined he had used a racial slurPink Ward was adamant he had and a month before that, Alfie when a viewer used the N-word in a text-to-speech message while donating.
Tenney, though, has been punished before, and he potentially could be facing a long-lasting (or even a permanent ban) for yet another violation. So far, though, that hasnt happened, and it appears Twitch is content to keep him on its platform without any kind of punishment.
