Jack 'CouRageJD' Dunlop was one of the most proficient casters across many Fortnite events, including the Fortnite World Cup. But two years ago, he suddenly disappeared from the scene entirely. And now we finally know why.
In a new video on his YouTube channel, CouRage tested the spiciest wings known to man through his own Hot Ones challenge. During the piece, he highlighted how the infamous, "F*** the mechs" clip resulted in his departure from Fortnite.
CouRage Reveals Why He Was Fired From Fortnite Casting
A couple of thousand scovilles in, he noted how the moment was released just before he was supposed to cast Season X:
I definitely didn’t make people happy with my f*** the mechs clip. I was meant to cast the end of the season event with Season X.
But, the clip went viral and even reached Fortnite's broadcasting higher-ups. CouRage didn't specifically say he was fired from Fortnite casting, but he definitely inferred it:
F*** the mechs happened and I was basically told “hey, you know what, I think it’s in our best interest not to cast the season and we’ll reassess the future”. I haven’t cast a Fortnite event since.
