ZaynSZN’s Twitter rant took a whole new level after making racist remarks

ZaynSZN is a content creator who only recently exploded into the Fortnite scene from his notoriously high stakes wagers. Only a few weeks ago, him and Khanada teamed up to beat Clix in a $1000 wager

It seems as though this huge ego led him to feel invincible. Invincible enough to go on a racist tangent on Twitter. For your sanity, we’ll spare you the details. What we will say is that he wasn’t particularly subtle about his disdain for minorities, and it wasn’t pretty

The tweets are deleted now, but replies to the unavailable thread are still up

One thing’s for certain: the vast majority of the community have their heads screwed on right. It didn’t take long for everyone to dissociate with Zayn and vehemently disagree with his opinions. Ghost Issa chimed in by calling Zayn’s tweet “Bloodx special,” referring to when former E11 player Bloodx got exposed for racist tangents of his own

There’s no indication that Zayn was hacked, as he deleted a majority of the tweets and has yet to recant the abhorrent statements. Instead, he doubled down trying to justify his opinion… and your imagination would give you a pretty solid approximation of how that was received by the community

Fortnite has done an amazing job injecting life-changing sums of money into tournament play and content creation through the support-a-creator program. I applaud them for that, but at the same time it has also brought a huge spotlight on many young people. It’s inevitable that some of these kids will not know how to properly deal with fame, especially when it comes all at once

There is simply no way to condone these actions. Hate has no place in the Fortnite community. Hate has no place in this world. Unfortunately Zayn ruined the golden goose that was professional Fortnite. Hopefully this could be a good lesson and reminder for those of you reading to be a good person, and none of this will ever be a problem for you
