FIFA pro and YouTuber Kurt “Kurt0411” Fenech had to learn the hard way that there is a clear difference between justified criticism and derogatory threatening gestures.
The FIFA player Kurt "Kurt0411" Fenech is known among players rather for outbursts of anger and hatred than for his skills in FIFA 20, EA now went far beyond Fenech's behavior and they punish him to a degree never seen before.
The constant feud between EA and Fenech has been going on for a few months, but now the YouTuber with the vulgar outbursts seems to have gone a step too far with a YouTube video. EA announced on Twitter:
An Important message regarding FIFA player Kurt0411. pic.twitter.com/RcHu1hMCup

An extract from the key message:
An example of this behavior can be found in this video, in the Fenech mobs against EA and spits on the logo:
This is the VOD that Kurt got banned for, I am all for freedom of speech but this is disgusting behavior. How are you going to spit on the logo of a company that you want to be a professional esports athlete for. I know I am going to get stick for this but he deserves the ban. pic.twitter.com/oJmlifBFLU

Last week, a Fenech disstrack went online with a rapper. Again, the video offends EA and other FIFA players, You can do the discussable work on Youtube watch – but you don't have to.
Excluding all EA games can be one of the toughest penalties a studio can pronounce. Is the ban justified? Write your opinion in the comments.
