Tfue’s lawsuit against FaZe Clan has been all the talk over the past few days, and Dr Disrespect is the latest prominent figure to give his take on the situation.
On May 23, FaZe CEO Lee Trink claimed that Tfue’s intentions behind the lawsuit were to free himself up from his contract, so that he would be free to move on and create his own esports org – one that would inevitably compete against FaZe.
Whether or not these claims have any truth to them remains to be seen, but as far as the Doc is concerned, he sees nothing wrong with Tfue’s vision.
“Imagine being the best player on the most popular game, and then starting your own organizations, and you’re the best player,” he tweeted. “Big vision. I like it Tfue. Your remind me of myself. And I’m being humble for once.”
Imagine being the best player on the most popular game and then starting your own organization… and you're the star player.
I like it @TTfue. You remind me of myself. And I'm being humble for once.

It’s true that the Doc rarely ever displays humility on his stream or social media posts, so it’s pretty clear he was being quite serious and heartfelt in what he was saying.
That being said, the jury is still very much out on whether Tfue’s intentions justify his actions, and there’s a chance that this lawsuit could end up leading to a very drawn out legal battle.
This tweet, of course, isn’t the first time that the Doc has shared his throughts on the Tfue-FaZe drama that’s unfolded over the past few days. On May 20, just hours after the news of the lawsuit first broke, the Two-Time posted a video giving his immediate reaction on the developing story.
“If he leaves FaZe Clan, I’m picking him up,” he said, tongue-in-cheek. “He’s joining me. He doesn’t need an organization anymore, he’s joining me. He and I are taking over the world.”
Tfue-FaZe lawsuit drama – what we know so far
The drama between Tfue and FaZe became public on May 20, when it was revealed that he had filed a lawsuit against the org for binding him to an “oppressive” contract, among other things.
After nearly two days of silence, Tfue released his first statement in a video late in the evening on May 22, explaining that his aim was to expose how “bizarre” and “fucked” his contract with FaZe was.
FaZe founder Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks has been very vocal in defending the org throughout the drama, promising that FaZe will soon make the contract public, all while calling Tfue a “selfish asshole,” and publishing an emotional video about why he could never forgive him.
As of May 23, the contract has still not been been released, although it was reportedly leaked shortly following Tfue’s video. However, there is no way to confirm the validity of the leak until FaZe make the official agreement available.
As always, we will continue to bring you updates to this drama as more information becomes available.
