“There’s a difference between a content creator who has millions of subscribers, hundreds of thousands of followers, who gets banned from literally what makes him money and some kid who is a piece of s*** who has absolutely zero following, has zero money that comes from gaming, and hacks,” Ninja stated. “You ban that child, nothing occurs to him. Nothing occurs. ‘Oh no, he cannot cheat anymore.’ You ban Jarvis… It’s totally different. The stakes are totally different, it ought to be dealt with just a little bit in a different way.

An grownup ought to be capable of expertise and assume issues over and [reflect on] penalties as a result of they’ve skilled life longer and so they notice that every thing in life has penalties,” Ninja said. “As a toddler, they should study this stuff. Should the bans be the very same? Technically not, as a result of when somebody normally commits homicide previous the age of 18 [or] 19 they’re thought-about an grownup and that is why they get tried as an grownup. If you might be beneath the age of 18 there is a purpose [why] you are not tried as an grownup instantly since you’re not mentally all there … [The punishment] ought to be the identical for all youngsters beneath the age of 18.”
