Cloak, who is the current captain of FaZe Clan’s Fortnite Battle Royale team, is the long-time duos partner of Tfue who is currently suing the organization over what is described as an “oppressive” contract in his suit.
While FaZe founder Ricky ‘FaZe Banks’ Banks and Tfue continue to publicly address and dispute the other’s story, it appears that Cloak has decided to stand behind his teammate instead of the organization he represents.[ad name=”article2″]
On Wednesday, May 22, Tfue released a statement regarding the ongoing lawsuit, stating that the contract he signed with the organization was bizarre, and urging fans to use “#ReleaseTheContract” in the hopes of pressuring FaZe to make it available for the public.
While many fans of the streamer chose started to post messages of support featuring the hashtag, one of the most notable people to use it was Cloak, posting an image of him embracing Tfue with “#ReleaseTheContract” as the caption on Instagram.
For Cloak to come out in public support of Tfue is a big step by the Fortnite Battle Royale pro player, as he is still a member of FaZe Clan and remains under contract with the organization.
Will Cloak keep playing with Tfue?
While some fans of the duo were concerned that the lawsuit brought by Tfue against FaZe Clan could spell the end of their time playing together, Cloak quickly shut down any thoughts that they would split up in a statement released on May 20.
“As of now, I am still on FaZe,” wrote Cloak in a TwitLonger. “Me and Tfue are still going to be a due, we are still going to qualify and win the World Cup, move in together, and take this streaming thing to the next level.”
Whether the pair still represent FaZe Clan when the the Fortnite World Cup rolls around remains to be seen, but it seems clear that Cloak intends to follow Tfue wherever he goes.
