TommyInnit on the TwitchCon issue involving JiDion

As it happens, JiDion managed to annoy a lot of attendees at the TwitchCon Amsterdam this year. The controversial creator was permanently banned from Twitch earlier this year, on grounds of harassing Pokimane. So, it was natural for JiDion to not get an invite for this year’s TwitchCon. However, the popular prankster is known for his nonchalant attitude toward rules and gatecrashed the event.

In addition to gatecrashing, he disrupted TommyInnit’s meet and greet, as many attendees reported. Although he was asked to leave the event later, Tommy wasn’t done. The popular Minecraft creator and streamer decided to address the incident through a stream on July 19. In fact, his frustration was clearly understandable.

 

TommyInnit mentioned how JiDion acted rudely, apologizing to his fans for the same. “During my Meet and Greet, this f***ing troll creator shoved into the line and started being a d**k to you lot. Being super rude, and just a f***ing prick. First of all, I’m sorry I didn’t see him earlier and sort him out,” Tommy said.

He added that the Twitch Staff was too focused on keeping him safe, leading to negligence. “They were so caught up in keeping me safe that they didn’t check up on you lot,” he shared. However, he assured that the staff will not let such incidents happen in future events.

Tommy’s thoughts on bullying

Tommy’s anger was quite justified, considering JiDion’s annoying personality. Moreover, Tommy also reiterated how harassment shouldn’t be tolerated. “I don’t want anyone to feel like they’re in f***ing school, being made fun of when they’re lining up to meet me. It’s like I won’t have it. Don’t make fun of people for being passionate about s***, being happy,” he proclaimed.

“I got bullied, right, I think most of us had some experience dealing with pricks and that can really put you down. When I was at school I would try to fit in and it sucked. I didn’t enjoy trying to fit in! And, I was bad at it… And, I want you’ll to know, I have only learned this over the past few years, you don’t have to do that,” TommyInnit shared.
