    Apparently the CAA (Creative Artists Agency) are involved which is why none of these independent leakers (Slasher, Keem etc) are willing to say anything out of fear of repercussions and a lack of hard evidence.

    I’m surprised it still hasn’t been announced why he was banned.

    See it starts out like that, And it ends in Chinese style police states with book burning and historical whitewashing.

    First they came for the Nazis, and I did not speak out because I was not a Nazi.

    Then they didn't come for anyone else, because they weren't ******* Nazis.

    Of course, because everyone who dislikes Twitter's political bias and censorious nature is a Nazi.

    It is a slippery slope, Once it is greased up and working it can be used against any sort of thing the people with money disagree with. What this means is they set what or who is acceptable. Goverments do not even go that far in the West.

    The fact it hasn't been makes me pretty sure Lawyers are involved and that's why everyone is keeping quiet.

    I know :confused:

    Their one of, if not the most powerful talent agencies in America with some of the very best legal representation money can buy. I think they may have got his sponsorships back, but since then Gillette have dropped him again.

    Have you ever looked at Gab?

    I did, once. I wouldn't advise doing so unless you want to end up on a watchlist. It is utterly indefensible. No civilised society should pay host to that trash, we fought a World War to get rid of that sort of thinking.

    Man, I'm a bit gutted. Been watching and subbed to him on and off since the H1Z1 days. Totally get why he's marmite, but I just find him so entertaining.

    Hope he comes back

    I'm not defending Gab. I'm saying that it doesn't just stop at "Nazis". It will slowly but surely progress to the point where anyone they dislike for any reason will be silenced.

    You are defending Gab, and the literal nazis that use the platform to openly talk about genocide and committing hate crimes.

    We did shut down the nazi ideaology in WW2, and it did not 'progress to the point where anyone they dislike for any reason will be silenced'. Your assertion is not based in reality.

    I heard some rumours that it's about his moustache isn't real and actually a fake one.
