Nate Hill suspended, FunkBomb banned after allegedly cheating on stream
Fortnite competitors Trevor “FunkBomb” Siegler and FaZe Clan player Nate Hill have been banned and suspended, respectively, for allegedly cheating on stream during a Fall Skirmish event last week. The punishments were incurred after FunkBomb allegedly supplied information to Hill after he’d already suffered an in-game death.
I especially apologize to @zzdmo, EPIC games, and my fans. I take full responsibilty for any repercussions that come my way. This is truly was a mistake, this is not who I am.

Epic Games has prohibited Hill from competing in Fall Skirmish events until Oct. 11, the player announced Tuesday on his stream, and FunkBomb has been removed from the Dusty Dogs Club and is no longer able to participate in Fall Skirmish events.
Hill an apology and provided his own account of the offense in a reddit post on Saturday.
I try to inspire people every day to follow their dreams and become better people. I am deeply saddened by the events that took place yesterday. Here are my thoughts about it https://t.co/yp36aQwkdZ @zzdmo @Loomin__ @EpicGames
