Federico Michael Gaytan, better known as Fedmyster on social media, is a Mexican-American Twitch streamer and YouTube personality best known for his gaming streams on Twitch. Federico started out as an editor for other streamers and Offline TV before moving into a talent role and starting streaming in 2017.
Federico is a former member of OfflineTV, an online social media group of content creators. He was removed in 2020 after several members of the group came forward with sexual misconduct allegations. CNN called this situation “one of [the] biggest #MeToo moments” of the gaming world.”
Federico Michael Gaytan, better known as Fedmyster on social media, was born on August 7, 1995. Federico grew up in Los Angeles and later attended the University of California at Santa Cruz. He was set to graduate but dropped out during his last semester when he chose to pursue a career in video editing. He made the move in part to help support his mother and brother once their father passed away.
As of September 2021, Federico Michael Gaytan, or Fedmyster, has more than 539,000 followers on Twitch, 216,000 followers on Instagram, 271,100 followers on Twitter, 421,000 subscribers on YouTube and 25,400 followers on TikTok.
Federico started his career as a video editor for the content creator Christian “IWDominate” Rivera. At the time, Christian was a pro player for Team Liquid.
In 2017, the social group OfflineTV, a content collaborative group, invited him to join – and he accepted. He worked as an editor at OfflineTV for several months before publishing his first YouTube video with the group, where he was promptly introduced as their editor. In 2018, OfflineTV promoted him to talent and he was added to their streaming roster.
Federico started streaming on Twitch for the first time in 2018 when he stopped editing for OfflineTV and moved into the talent role. When he first started streaming, his Twitch emote “Fed7” was reported more than 400 million times in the first few months. It became the most popular emote on the site at the time.
However, since starting his Twitch account, Federico has been banned by Twitch multiple times. In 2017, the platform banned him for the first time after he photoshopped cleavage onto pictures of his roommates Pokimane and Lilypichu as a joke. The ban was 24 hours long.
In 2018, he was banned again when he showed a business card with his personal info during an IRL stream. This time, the ban lasted three days. He was banned again later in the year following an unusual stream: he was watching paint dry on a canvas, while not interacting with his audience. One of his donors wrote a message with the N-word. A text-to-speech system in place read the message out loud; due to a bug, the app could not be stopped from reading the word in advance. Twitch banned him for seven days.
Federico was banned again in 2019 after he streamed while drunk and damaged private property while in Japan. He was banned 14 days.
In 2020, he was banned yet again after he showed a nude photo of another streamer, Alinity, while scrolling through Twitter. Federico was banned for three days, and Alinity was banned for just 24 hours. Federico ended up appealing the ban and it was lifted early.
That same year, Federico’s FedSimp emote was taken down by Twitch due to harassment and bullying. The streamer said his community never meant to use it with ill intent.
In 2020, Federico came under fire for sexual misconduct allegations. Fellow Offline TV members Yvonne “Yvonnie” Ng and Lily “LilyPichu” Ki both described instances where Federico would make unwanted advances on them.
Ng said that Federico would come into her room uninvited and lay down on her bed, where he would inappropriately touch her. Streamer Pokimane later came forward and said Federico had made advances on her and fueled growing distrust between them. In addition other female members of Offline TV said they had inappropriate interactions with Federico.
As a result, Offline TV removed Federico from the group. CNN called this situation “one of [the] biggest #MeToo moments” of the gaming world.”
