YouTuber and Fortnite player ‘Tenser’ has officially joined massively popular esports and entertainment organization FaZe.

The org teased the addition in a cryptic Tweet on November 3, asking fans to tag their best guesses.

While fans’ suspicions were all over the board, Tenser himself even replied to their Tweet and tagged himself, to which FaZe responded, “No.”

They revealed Tenser in a follow-up Tweet, which they captioned, “We changed our minds.” Also attached was a picture of Tenser next to the FaZe logo in his classic Gucci attire.

Tenser is a content creator on YouTube, known for his gameplay videos and comedy sketches. He uploaded a video to the platform just after the announcement went live, where he explained the story behind his addition to the squad.

Tenser stated that FaZe Banks had invited him just after he’d hit his one million subscriber milestone.

“I had to keep slapping myself in the face as hard as I could,” Tenser said of his reaction to the news. “I had to mute my mic in Discord and made sure to keep hitting myself to make sure that it wasn’t a dream.”

Tenser admitted that he has been staying in the FaZe house for about a week, and will be making a full move into the space upon his induction. This marks a huge change for Tenser, who is a Massachusetts native.

Aside from his series of Fortnite videos and streams of the game, Tenser also competed in the Fortnite Summer Skirmish this year. His inclusion in the team marks yet another addition in their ongoing expansion.

TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
