Fortnite pro Clix slams “stupid kid” after being swatted again on Twitch

After a swatting attempt on him for the second time in four months, professional Fortnite player Cody ‘Clix’ Conrad opened up about the most recent incident and described how easy it is for police to trace the caller and get the culprit’s information.

Arguably the most dangerous and frustrating aspect of any streamer’s life is when they unfortunately find themselves on the wrong end of a swatting incident.

For pro Fortnite player Clix, it’s happened twice in the space of four months, and he’s just as frustrated and furious as when it happened the first time in October.

Three hours into his February 28 stream, Clix muted himself after getting a phone call from his dad, and then said he had to end his stream, or at least mute it and turn off the camera, while visibly getting angry at a “fifteen year-old p***y.”

After muting his stream and removing his webcam for roughly 15 minutes, Clix came back saying that “s**t makes me laugh.”

“A fifteen-year-old. It’s funny. It makes me laugh how someone can ruin their life just like that. They don’t know that they [the police] can track calls. It makes me laugh at how someone just f***s up their life just like that. Now he’s in jail.”

Later in the stream, Clix revealed that the kid had called the police claiming that the streamer had killed someone. The pro player then went into detail about how dumb it is trying to try and swat someone.

“I know what the kid looks like, he’s 15, now he’s f****d. They legit have the kid’s identity, where he called from, like you have to be stupid.”

When someone asked if the police had the Fortnite pro’s address already and if they were aware that something like this could happen, the streamer said it didn’t matter, because the police have to respond with “full force” anyway.

During his explanation of what happened, Clix was watching the livestream of fellow pro player Bugha, who found himself on the wrong end of a swatting incident just weeks after his Solo World Cup victory.

A pro player for Misfits, he’s competed in both the Solo and Duos World Cup this past summer, taking home over $160,000 from just that event. He’s won a handful of other events and tournaments in the Fortnite Champion Series.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
