When Epic Games banned popular FaZe Clan member Jarvis "Jarvis" Kaye from playing Fortnite for life, the news hit major media outlets including CNN and ESPN.

But where the story would really turn was when streaming superstar Tyler “Ninja” Blevins spoke up about why he thought the reasons for the ban were unwarranted.

Uh oh, it's llama trauma...in Virtual Legality.
