TommyInnit was born on April 9, 2004, in Nottinghamshire, England. His real name is Thomas Simons. Not much is known about his family or personal life.
In 2018, while streaming on his Twitch channel, Tommy used "lobby spamming" to get more viewers on his live streams. Lobby spamming is the process of going into a Hypixel lobby full of players and posting a stream link and some clickbait, usually in the form of fake giveaways. Tommy and his friend Freddie (known by his pseudonym, Badlinu) created chat macros to help them with lobby spamming.
In late 2018, Tommy asked a server staff whether lobby spamming was allowed on the platform, and he said it was. In December 2018, TommyInnit was muted by a server staff for 7 days. The server staff also responded with an impolite comment after Tommy was muted. The staff later found out that Tommy had used macros for lobby spamming. Following this, Tommy was blacklisted completely.
However, Tommy later explained that a server staff had said that lobby spamming was allowed and also reported the rude comment made after he was banned. A Hypixel admin felt the whole situation had been blown out of proportion and approved Tommy’s appeal, allowing him to join Hypixel again. However, Tommy remained muted. He used the time to polish his editing skills.
On June 26, 2019, Tommy got banned due to his video the ranked skywars experience (handcam), in which he had joked about downloading the Vape Client. Hypixel admins banned him for 30 days for promoting cheats, even though Tommy claimed the video was a satire.
On April 27, 2020, he was in trouble due to his video i installed 13 minecraft hacked clients and did this... when people on the Hypixel forums noticed that it had broken Hypixel's YouTube ranking policy. People started a campaign against him. Tommy later clarified through a stream that Simon, the owner of Hypixel, had said his video was allowed since it had not started a hacking trend. Tommy has created countless videos on hacking since then, and none of them has been banned.
In December 2019, Tommy’s school found out about his gaming channel on YouTube. Apparently, one of his teachers played one of Tommy’s videos on the reflector screen.
Back in 2018, his schoolmate Eryn’s sister, who also went to the same school, had already found out about his gaming videos and would often threaten Tommy, saying she would reveal the fact that he was a Minecraft YouTuber.
In April 2020, Tommy recalled how he was mocked in school and began supporting the hashtag campaign #SchoolIsOverParty.
He posts interesting “tweets” about drugs and women on Twitter.
In one of his streams, Tommy claimed he was cross-dominant and said he liked playing video games with his left hand while playing some other sport with his right hand.
