Addison Rae responded to a diss track about her from Fortnite pro Nate Hill, publicly denouncing the FaZe Clan member’s video as “hurtful” and “fueling negativity.”

While the video was made to address the “people infesting [his] timeline with bad Addison Rae tweet replies,” the content of the clip was largely focused on the 19-year-old’s physical appearance and nature of her content.

The video instantly gained traction around the internet among fans, streamers and influencers alike. Hill, as well as a portion of his friends and fans, enjoyed the track. Others, including Rae, did not.

“This makes me really sad,” Rae said of the track. “I can’t change how people interact with me or my tweets… but I’m thankful they do… I struggle with body image and insecurities in general and this can be so hurtful.”

Rae said that the content of the track “can tear someone’s self-esteem up if they’re already having negative thoughts in their own head.”

Hill’s “researched” track included lyrics such as “there’s better girls than Addison Rae” and “I see hotter girls every day.”

Many hit out at Hill for the since-deleted video’s content since it was out of character for the streamer.

“This dude has ‘positivity’ in his title every stream yet went out of his way to make an entire ass song tearing down someone who he’s never met or done anything wrong,” Twitter user ‘THump’ said. “Imagine being that weird.”

Also replying to the tweet was fellow FaZe member ‘Ewok,’ saying that the video was “Unnecessary. But it’s obviously impression farming.”

Rae has amassed a large following on TikTok.

The term refers to an online strategy that’s sole purpose is to be consumed by as many people as possible.

Hill later took down the video, saying the video was just a joke and that he wasn’t trying to hurt anybody.

Rae decried the clip: “I say these things because [Hill] has a large platform and is choosing to use it to spread and fuel negativity.”

It should be said that these kind of diss tracks are frequent and menial in the streaming space, but the content of the song didn’t conjure the reaction Hill was hoping for.

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
