On June 16, The Hollywood Fix was able to track Tfue down at Los Angeles Airport for a quick interview where he spoke about Patrick ‘H1ghsky1’.
Since Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s bombshell lawsuit against esports organization FaZe Clan was released by The Blast, the Fortnite superstar has kept quiet regarding the situation.
The popular celebrity and pop culture channel The Hollywood Fix published a YouTube video on June 16 featuring Tfue and his lawyer as they walk through Los Angeles Airport heading to the Fortnite Summer Block party.
The interviewer asked Tfue about the young FaZe Clan member H1ghSky1, who the Floridian online personality outed as being underage and not 13 years old.
Upcomer’s Kevin Hitt confirmed that the young star was not 13, and was actually only 12. In fact, H1ghsky1 was only 11 when he signed with FaZe Clan.
“That whole situation I can’t go too in depth about it, but I do feel bad.”
He continued with, “I was looking to, maybe, lower the minimum age requirements for Twitch.”
Tfue confirmed he had no ill-will with H1ghSky1 and was not “beefing” with him.
“I’m trying to lower the requirements. I am trying to lower it to 12.”
The interviewer next asked Tfue if he wanted the pre-teen star to get his accounts back and he answered with a simple, “Yeah.”
Can Tfue lower the age requirement on Twitch?
Even though Tfue is one of the biggest personalities on Twitch, he does not have the power to lower the age requirement from 13 to 12.
The reason Twitch’s terms of service state the minimum age of 13 is due to Child Labor Laws.
With over 6 million followers on the platform, his opinion does hold weight to the community and staff at Twitch.
We aren’t sure if Tfue’s opinion is enough to change the age requirement, but it might add some leverage to the argument.
