In October 17, Thug took to Twitter and revealed that he had been uninvited from the Grand Finals of the upcoming PUBG Mobile event. He wrote on Twitter, “Lol @PUBGMOBILE_IN cancelled my Invite to PMIT as a guest viewer, coz I stream @PlayCODMobile . Hey @PlayCODMobile , you guys looking for content creators in India?”
There are several fellow video game streamers urged Indian gaming community to come together against PUBG Mobile’s petty behaviour until they apologise. What do you think, Is it okay to punish people for venturing into different mobile titles?
@Mortal04907880 @8bit_thug @oppomobileindia I think it's time India and indian gaming community showed unity against pmit till they apologise to 8bitthug for their petty behaviour. Dear oppo I hope you take a stand against this being the sponsors for pmit. #shameonpmit.
