YouTuber FaZe Banks has popped off on Twitter to rage about a lifetime Fortnite ban one of his players has been faced with after being caught cheating.

Earlier this week, 17-year-old gaming YouTuber Jarvis Kaye uploaded a teary video in which he admitted to using "aimbots", which make it easier to kill opponents.

He added that he didn't use the bots to win competitions, but just to improve his videos.

He took responsibility for the ban, but was clearly devastated. If you think this is a bit excessive, remember that this isn't just a hobby but a community, a job and his golden ticket to YouTube stardom.

Kaye has over two million subscribers on YouTube, and is part of the eSports team FaZe Clan, which is owned by controversial YouTuber FaZe Banks.

Banks defended Kaye on Twitter, saying the ban was "ridiculous".

Some people agreed that the ban seemed excessive, but thought he should have been subjected to some sort of punishment for what he did.

While others thought that he had set a bad example and shouldn't be treated any differently to anyone else.
