Popular Twitch streamer Ben ‘Dr Lupo’ Lupo jokingly called out FaZe content creator Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks, after Fortnite pro Tfue was gifted a first-month subscription to Lupo’s Twitch channel.

Lupo addressed the debacle in a hilarious series of Tweets on November 30, humorously claiming that Banks doesn’t pay his players and insinuating that Tfue was only able to subscribe to his channel due to a gifted subscription.

“Alright Banks, will you please actually pay your players?” Lupo wrote facetiously. “Tfue was just gifted his first month sub to my channel, like wtf.”

Tfue took the trolling in good spirits, responding with a gif of a crying rabbit from a classic cartoon, as if to poke fun at FaZe.

Lupo wasn’t done roasting the org, however: he followed up his ‘callout post’ with another Tweet, asking popular streamer and former OpTic Gaming streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop to gift even more subscriptions due to the allegedly ‘sad’ nature of FaZe’s financials.

“This is so sad,” Lupo said in response to Tfue’s gif. “CouRage, can we get 5 gifted subs, please?”

While FaZe Banks and CouRage have yet to respond to Lupo’s trolling, the internet has since given their two cents on the jokes – with one commenter insinuating that Tfue hadn’t subscribed because he didn’t appreciate Lupo’s content.

“He didn’t sub to you because he doesn’t like your content,” one user wrote. “No one does.”

Lupo responded to the comment in kind, replying with, “Hahahah, you are so mad.”

Although Lupo’s comments clearly come from a place of self-deprecating humor, some spectators didn’t appear to get the message.

Borat is one of the most iconic characters in the world, and now the Kazakh journalist is set to make his first appearance on Twitch tomorrow where he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo; here’s how to watch.

Borat is more than a national treasure to Kazakhstan. He’s a global icon and one of the funniest characters in the world.

Sacha Baron Cohen first slipped into the Borat persona back in the nineties. But although he appeared in several hilarious skits and cameos, he didn’t explode in popularity until 2006, when the feature-film ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ released worldwide.

For those who haven’t seen it, it’s a mockumentary that revolves around unscripted real-life interactions. Sacha Baron Cohen pretends to be Borat, a journalist from Kazakhstan. He travels around the US to learn more about their culture.

But he purposefully presses their buttons and puts them in hilarious situations. He winds up people from all walks of life, which sometimes lands him in hot water.

Borat debuts the infamous ‘mankini’ at 2006 Cannes Film Festival.

Fortunately, we’re lucky enough to experience it all over again with the imminent release of the sequel, ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.’

Seth Rogen claims he has already seen it around six times and said he “can’t wait to watch it a seventh.” He described it as “crazy and wonderful” and believes it has “a few of the funniest scenes [he’s] ever seen in a movie.”

But that’s not all. To promote the movie, Twitch announced that Borat will make his first-ever appearance on their platform.

“For the first time ever, Kazakhstan’s biggest gamer will go live on Twitch,” the Amazon-owned platform announced on Oct. 20. “Very nice.” The best part is, he will ‘face off’ against DrLupo “in a battle for global supremacy.”

The stream goes live on October 20 at 3 pm PT. If you want to know where and how you can watch it, we’ve got you covered.

How to watch Borat stream on Twitch

  • First, you’ll obviously need to wait until the time is right. However, it’s a good idea to tune in a little earlier as most streamers kick things off with a ten-minute countdown.
  • Then, all you need to do is tune in to DrLupo’s Twitch channel, which can be found here.
  • From that point onwards, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

There has been no official word on what games they’ll play. DrLupo has been dabbling in a bit of everything lately, from 7 Days To Die and Escape From Tarkov to Genshin Impact. Maybe even a bit of Among Us might be on the cards.

Of course, it’ll depend on what games Borat has available. For all we know, he might be an absolute machine on Call of Duty: Warzone or League of Legends. But we’re not counting on it.

Either way, the stream is going to be a blast, and we can’t wait until it goes live.
