Twitch Bans Fortnite Pro Player 'ZexRow' Over "Self-Harm" and Monster Energy Drinks

Apparently, Twitch draws the line at 2 Monster Energy Drink cans.

Monster Energy Drink, the vicious foe of streamers everywhere. Fortnite pro player Anthony 'ZexRow' Colandro recently received a suspension from Twitch following a 2-can binger of Monster Energy drink with a joke pretending to drink even more. Apparently even though the cans were filled with water, that wasn't enough to dissuade the streaming platform to curb the suspension. 

With his 200,000 followers on Twitch and over 45K on YouTube and almost 150K on Twitter, ZexRow definitely has a strong community behind him, a community was very confused to learn that the streamer was suspended on January 8th. 

He took to Twitter with the news, saying "Damn, I knew 2020 was going to be interesting but not this interesting where I get banned from Twitch." 

The pro player told the folks over at Dexerto that he drank the two cans and then asked if he should have another when his fans said yes he filled the third can with water. He told the site"I drank 2 Monsters on stream and asked if I should drink another and everyone say yes, but I knew it was bad for you so instead I filled the cans with water and then kept drinking them with water."

While only two cans were the actual drink itself, that amount of liquid in such a short amount of time made the streamer sick, where he ultimately vomited on camera.

"I got banned for 'self-harm' because you can die from drinking that many Monsters," he added. "My friend was in the background exaggerating to make the joke more apparent.

The suspension is only for 7 days so maybe just keep the jokes and vomiting separate? Maybe?
