Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue encountered a unique glitch during the middle of a stream – which ultimately caused him to play under an alternate account.

Tfue was in the midst of a Fortnite game when his screen kept blacking out, rendering the battle royale unplayable and forcing him to return to the lobby.

The streamer speculated that his game was glitching out due to an overload of friend requests – even though he’d enabled Auto Decline in his game settings.

Epic Games, Fortnite INTELFortnite’s Season 8 update has seen a few glitches – including a bug that kills players who venture into a certain area of the map.

That’s not all; the influx of friend requests was so great that it ended up completely freezing his game, although notifications were still consistently popping up on the loading screen through Epic’s launcher.

“Dude, I think I’m gonna have to play on an alt account,” Tfue said of the issue. “…my game is legitimately fucking broken.”

In an attempt to dodge the friend request overload, Tfue went as far as to completely uninstall Fortnite and the Epic Games launcher altogether, going on to play under his alternate account.

As it happens, Tfue had left Auto Decline off in the Epic launcher, leading to a major dysfunction that left his account unusable.

However, Tfue returned to Fortnite the very next day, rushing to implement Auto Decline before the friend requests could have a chance to roll in.

It comes as no surprise that Tfue is constantly under a barrage friend requests; as one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, Tfue boasts over five million followers on the platform, with over nine million subscribers on YouTube due to his Fortnite exploits.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has had enough of internet critics, telling trolls to buzz off in a pointed Instagram Live broadcast where she defended names like Addison Rae against body-shaming users.

It’s no secret that the internet can be a brutal place. The advent of social media has allowed people from all over the world to connect with one another, for better or for worse — and not everyone has a positive outlook on life.

From the average Instagram user to social media stars like Addison Rae, it seems that no one is above criticism from internet trolls, causing some users to completely lock down their accounts while others have learned to handle the negativity with a swift block.

Not everyone can drown out the negativity, though, especially if there’s a lot of it, and it seems that Charli D’Amelio has taken notice of quite a few negative comments about her fellow TikTokers.

“Quite honestly, I know I look good,” Charli said while doing her makeup in an October Instagram Live. “Addison should know she looks good. Maddie should know she looks good. Cynthia should know she looks good. Like, shut up!”

“Keep it to yourself!” she continued.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. People say like, such rude things to like, Sissy Sheridan. Sissy is so beautiful. Literally one of the most beautiful girls I know. You’re mad that she doesn’t cuss? How is that affecting you?”

“Even like, Bella Poarch,” the TikTok star added. “She uses the face zoom filter, and she looks good doing it. You guys gave her the likes. Don’t go back on what you said, because she has a lot of followers.”

It’s no secret that the celebs she mentioned have been getting quite a lot of backlash lately; from Bella Poarch being accused of acting childlike on purpose to trolls body-shaming Addison Rae’s curves, it looks like Charli has simply had enough of the negativity.

She’s not wrong for pointing it out, either. Reports state that the current global health crisis has seen a dramatic rise in cyberbullying, and a quick look at comments on TikTok show that this isn’t a mistruth.

In these times, it’s always good to remember Bill and Ted’s classic saying: “Be excellent to each other.”
