An online feud has begun to form between 100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and several members of FaZe Clan, following the news that Fortnite BR pro player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is suing the org.

The news that Tfue filed a lawsuit against FaZe Clan broke on Monday, May 20, with his lawyer claiming that the org was holding the superstar to an “oppressive” contract.

As expected, the lawsuit has caused a massive stir on social media, drawing out reactions from a lot of prominent figures within the esports community, one of whom was Nadeshot.

“I hope recent news doesn’t affect the broader gaming community’s perception of esports teams,” he tweeted. “There are plenty of organizations in the space whose top priority are their professional players and content creators.”

“And for what it’s worth, I’m personally friends with a lot of the owners & staff over at FaZe Clan,” he added. “I know for a fact that the majority of them don’t have ill intentions, but some at the organization just don’t understand the esports ecosystem and take advantage where they can.”

Unfortunately for Nadeshot, these comments were taken very seriously by two longtime and prominent members of FaZe Clan – Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks and Lucas ‘Blaze’ Mosing – both of whom posted strong-worded tweets in response.

“You’re a piece of shit dude, and when my side of this is heard, you’ll see why,” Banks tweeted. “Way to fucking jump on the bandwagon and chase the clout. You must be dancing right now.

Banks even went as far as to threaten the 100 Thieves CEO in his tweet: “Matt, I’m going to personally make sure you regret tweeting this and adding to this bullshit dumpster fire.”

Although his responses weren’t as harsh, Blaze made it very clear that he had taken what Nadeshot had said very personally.

“Bro what the fuck, none of us can believe you just tweeted this,” he said.

Upon seeing his comments blown out way more than he had likely anticipated, Nadeshot tried several times to defuse the situation and provide a little damage control, putting out a few more tweets in which he made it clear that his comments weren’t aimed at any one of FaZe’s original founding members.

“I have the utmost respect for what Banks, Temper, Rain and Apex have created at FaZe,” he tweeted. “We’ve been working together and alongside one another for almost a decade. I apologize if my previous tweets don’t reflect that sentiment. This situation is being blown out of proportion.”

Nadeshot ultimately issued an apology to FaZe for “jumping in unnecessarily,” pretty much admitting that his comments had further fueled the fire of drama.

“I’ve done my best to avoid unnecessary controversy and drama over the last few years but my tweets today were an oversight on all accounts,” he tweeted. “I’d like to apologize to everyone over at the FaZe Clan organization for jumping in unnecessarily.”

Why is Tfue suing FaZe Clan?

Tfue’s lawsuit against FaZe Clan was officially filed on May 20, on the ground that they allegedly limited his ability to pursue his profession in violation of California law.

According to Tfue’s lawyer, FaZe were taking an 80% cut of all the revenue from his branded videos on social media, leaving the star streamer with only 20%.

In addition to those claims, his lawyer also alleged that FaZe is “jeopardizing the health, safety, and welfare of its members,” which includes serving alcohol to members before they’re allowed to drink, and pressuring underage players to lie about their age.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
