Logan Paul should have been banned, and this zoomer was right to be banned. I don't support double standards just because some shitty groups support them, and Ninja is a dipshit for using this argument.
It's funny you mention that because just how Youtube went easy on Logan Paul, their golden child at the time, Epic would absolutely defend Ninja because he's the poster child for Fortnite.
I actually don't care one way or the other if Logan Paul deserves to get banned or not (I lean towards banned because he doesn't create good content in general), but there's a noticeable difference between what Paul did and what this kid did. In Paul's case, he made a disrespectful and tasteless video, but overall, any other casual viewer can just ignore Paul's channel altogether and watch someone else. No one's not ever gonna watch YouTube videos just because they stumbled on Paul's video and found it crass. In Jarvis' case, while viewers are free to seek entertainment elsewhere, he still fucked the in-game experience for all other players playing in the games he used cheats on, and that sometimes has lasting effects on those other players in that they get frustrated and move on to other games, thus losing potential revenue for Epic. This is magnified by how Fortnite is a free game, so any player lost to frustration potentially might have been one of those whales that spend for cosmetics - it's not like a traditional paid game where Epic already got their $40-$60 from that player who left.
If I ran Epic, I'd tell Ninja in private to shut it. Fortnite is much bigger than Ninja, still, and even if he bitched publicly about being told off, played other games, and claimed he will never play Fortnite ever again, I'm very sure he'd come crawling back to Fortnite down the line once he sees his rich boy regular income drying up.
