Like millions of other gaming stars, Fedmyster spends most of his time on one of the largest live streaming platforms, Twitch. Like his contemporaries, he takes his time to explore, engage with his fans, and then connect with other users on the streaming space.
While it is true that Twitch basically allows its users to explore their interests in areas like music, cooking, gaming, chat shows, artwork creation and more, Fedmyster is very popular for his IRL streaming (In Real Life Streaming) and content creation. As an IRL streamer, the Twitch star broadcasts himself as he moves from one place to another and also hangs with other personalities on Twitch. From doing this, Fedmyster has garnered large followings for himself within and outside the space.
The renowned Twitch star was born on the 7th of August 1995, in the city of Los Angeles, California. Although he is professionally known as Fedmyster, the name his parents gave to him after his birth in America is Federico M. Gaytan but the names of his parents are missing from the picture.
The IRL streamer, as gathered, has Mexican roots and grew up alongside two brothers. He is assumed to have completed his elementary and high school education in the U.S even though the names of the institutions and the particular year he graduated are yet to be disclosed. Fedmyster is a college graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz.
As a child, the American sensation was very much interested in soccer and video games. At the time, the only time he engages himself in both was in his free time but after he got enrolled in high school; Fedmyster realized that soccer wasn’t really his thing, so he decided to focus more on video editing and video games.
In 2016, the Twitch star started working as a full-time video editor for one of Twitch’s celebrated stars. He was later invited to become a member of the Team Liquid as an editor in June 2017. The following month, Gaytan began making and editing YouTube videos for Offline TV channel.
Founded by Twitch star William Li and his manager Chris Chan, Offline TV is made up of online content creators based in California. The channel basically records the group’s antics as housemates in the same apartment. Since 2017, Fedmyster has been with the group which consists of other stars like – Moroccan Canadian twitch star Pokimane (born Imane Anys), American former pro-League of Legends player William Li, American Twitch sensation LilyPichu, Canadian Twitcher Disguised Toast (born Jeremy Wang), Sleightlymusical (born Albert Chang), and MarkZ (born ark Zimmerman).
Fedmyster launched his personal streaming career in late 2017 and so far, he has amassed more than 314,000 followers. In 2018, his emote known as “Fed7” is said to have been used about 431 million times in 3 months, making his emote the most popular emoji at that time on the site.
Why Was He Banned From Twitch?
Twitch is not the only the go-to platform for gamers, it is also a powerful platform to broadcast one’s personalized contents and have the fastest connection with other users. As an IRL streamer, Fedmyster relays his real-life activities on Twitch and it was on one of the days he was streaming that he got himself into trouble, leading to his suspension from the platform.
Fedmyster was touring around Japan when the incident occurred. He had a night out with JakenbakeLIVE (a fellow IRL twitch streamer) on the said night and was later seen with a traffic cone on his head stumbling around.
The late-night broadcast captured a seemingly drunk Gaytan swinging his arms widely as he bounced down an alley. Unable to clearly see where he was heading, the Los Angeles sensation bumped into a vending kiosk and knocked down two wooden doors protecting the kiosk. Immediately, JakenbakeLIVE turned away the camera from Fedmsyter, admitting to viewers online that it was not a good sight.
Although the kiosk’s doors were later placed back, Twitch subscribed to JakenbakeLIVE’s sentiment and ended up banning Fedmyster’s account for 14 days. The Twitch star later apologized to his fans and promised not to let them down again.
