Numerous Skywars videos by popular Minecraft YouTuber Technoblade have been made private amid requests for the star to be fired following a 2017 post that has since sparked new controversy.
Fans of Technoblade’s content have noted that many of his previous videos are no longer accessible despite the fact that he currently has over five million subscribers and millions of daily views on YouTube.
Fans believe that Technoblade’s lack of an official statement regarding the purge is because of a persistent issue surrounding an earlier tweet the YouTuber posted before his following base exploded.
TECHNOBLADE TWITTER CONTROVERSY: WHAT IS IT?
A tweet from 2017 is the source of the issue regarding Technoblade’s Twitter account. Was Hitler a lesbian? is the subject of the tweet in question.
A vociferous group of critics has demanded that Technoblade be canceled in response to the recently uncovered tweet, which has received a very unfavorable response.
Fans believe Technoblade’s decision to keep older Skywars videos private may be an attempt to head off further problems even though he hasn’t publicly commented on the recent Twitter incident.
TECHNOBLADE’S videos are now private. Why?
Fans believe Technoblade took action to keep a significant portion of his older recordings private in an effort to prevent the material from being used against him in the future.
The reasoning behind this seems to be that since an old tweet was dug up to stir up controversy in 2021, it would be as risky for bad faith commentators to re-examine an offensive or inappropriate joke from Technoblade’s hours of content.
The choice to make Technoblade’s prior content private has resulted in a decline in daily views of several million. Fans have complained that they couldn’t see his older videos anymore, but many have commented that they can relate to his worries and point of view.
