FaZe Clan’s Teeqo Provides Update on US Visa Situation

Swedish FaZe Clan member Jakob “Teeqo” Swarden has provided an update on his US Visa situation, after the YouTuber had to return to his home country earlier this year.

As with many of the other long time FaZe Clan members, Teeqo’s permanent residence is in the organization’s Calabasas team house, a plush mansion housing some of the Clan’s biggest stars. 

However, due to Teeqo’s Swedish background, he requires a Visa to stay in the US permanently – something notoriously difficult to acquire.

In May of 2018, he returned to his childhood home, the place where he first gained internet fame for his Call of Duty trick-shotting videos and his Teeqo brand was born, after his Visa had expired.

As with any Visa application, it is never certain to be approved, regardless of how established the FaZe brand now is, and can take months and months to be approved after applying.

Teeqo made a video on his channel on May 7th addressing his return to Sweden, explaining that although it is certainly easier to be approved than when he initially moved to the US three years ago, nothing was for sure, leaving him in limbo.

Thankfully however, Teeqo had his US Visa re-approved, coincidentally on July 4th, and will now head back out to Calabasas. 

Like many of the top FaZe Clan members, Teeqo runs a popular YouTube channel with just short of 2 million subscribers, as well as supporting the organization in its many esports ventures.

He is best known for involvement in Call of Duty but has also taken a keen interest with FaZe’s star studded CS:GO lineup.

With his return to the US, he has also stated he would like to compete in the Friday Fortnite tournaments, which FaZe have been heavily involved in with both pro players and content creators taking part.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
