Bryce Hall exposes Thomas Petrou for trying to start “fake beef” in DMs

The beef between TikTok stars Bryce Hall and Thomas Petrou has taken a confusing turn, after Petrou allegedly reached out to his Sway House rival in an attempt to stir up a “fake” feud.

The Sway House’s Bryce Hall has not been shy about his distaste for Thomas Petrou, co-founder of the Hype House and a famous TikToker in his own right.

It’s more than a Sway House vs Hype House beef, though; Hall accused Petrou of stealing money from TikTokers in the HH, as well as criticizing his spending habits and claiming he goes through money “like an idiot.”

While Petrou has denied any claims of stealing from the Hype House influencers, it seems that he’s not necessarily trying to avoid the drama, according to alleged direct messages sent to Hall.

Hall shared the purported DMs in a snarky Tweet on October 22, which showed Petrou asking the Sway House creator if he could make an appearance on his ‘Capital University’ podcast to hash out their differences.

“Hey, the internet is boring right now,” Petrou wrote. “Wanna talk through our issues on your podcast?”

It doesn’t look like Hall is interested, though, as he shot back with a, “HAHAHA, you’re a meme, bruh.”

That’s not all; Hall even accused Petrou of trying to start “fake beef” with him after sharing the messages to Twitter.

“This is the guy that claims I’m obsessed with him, then texts me trying to start fake beef because the ‘internet is boring,’” he said of their exchange. “Here’s a link to my YouTube if you’re bored, bro.”

That was just the tip of the iceberg, it seems, as Petrou shared their full conversation to his Instagram Stories, which shows Hall asking Petrou to box him (and even threatening to send him to the hospital) — a prospect that Petrou himself isn’t a fan of.

The entire convo is certainly something: Bryce Hall is itching to take out his frustrations against the Hype House founder in the ring, while Petrou wants them to sort their differences in an “adult” manner, leading to a pointed analysis of their messages over the course of their discussion.

The tea is piping hot, and fans are largely divided as to who is in the right, in this scenario.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
