We have all been there – that awkward moment when someone shares too much personal information about themselves on social media and subsequently stands embarrassed as they prepare to face off against their opponent. Robert Bowling, host of the channel, The Overwatch League, has learned this harsh lesson the hard way after he accidentally revealed too much on the Overwatch League’s Twitch page and received another lesson in the ins and outs of social media.

It all went down Sunday night at Blizzard’s BlizzCon event when the Twitch community searched for more information on the season nine premier of the Overwatch League. Many viewers requested more information about the team names, roster, and other pertinent details, much to the dismay of Pro PlayerStream CEO, Chris Park. Park acted quickly and according to Pro PlayerStream, an affected subscriber received a reply stating, “It’s a shame but it makes sense for our ex-creator to use his publishing to identify non-player content creators who want to generate free money from Twitch and their viewers, but be willing to donate most of the net to Blizzard. Don’t get me wrong, PPL is making a good amount of money right now but without warning and for people like Chris Park who were blindly subscribe to PPL, this all adds to a long list of situations that need someone taking action.”

Here is the official statement:

At the time of this report, Pro PlayerStream has not received another tweet. After receiving this for comment, Robert Bowling sent the following tweet to Pro PlayerStream, who he confirmed had his account locked:

As most would imagine, this bout of cyberbullying is nothing new for the Overwatch streamer. The unknown account was registered last August, which places them outside of the League’s official domain. However, both Pro PlayerStream and the League were aware of this matter at the time, although the League had no idea who was behind the account.

PPL’s account has not been affected as of this post, but many Twitch viewers are wondering what will happen if they receive a response from Pro PlayerStream.

This is not the first time Pro PlayerStream has interacted with Robert Bowling. The host was called a liar back in May of this year on the Overwatch League’s YouTube channel during a live broadcast. Pro PlayerStream and Blizzard were quick to correct the mix up and provide evidence that no records were altered.
