Popular Fortnite streamer HighDistortion has revealed why he has separated from Team SoloMid, since joining the esports organization in January 2018. 

HighDistortion has amassed a massive following of over 1.6 million on his Twitch channel, much of which was during his time on TSM, particularly for his streams on Epic Games’ Fortnite, being the first player to reach 100,000 kills.

However, the popular esports organization announced that they would be releasing the Fortnite star from their roster after almost two years, along with three other battle royale players.

TSMTSM is known for their star studded Fortnite roster including stars such as Myth, Daequan and Hamlinz.

TSM announced that they would be releasing a mix of their battle royale pros, which included Kaysid, ProdigyAces, Wintrrz, and HighDistortion, into free agency on October 17, only days after the Fortnite Chapter 2 was released.

The North American organization thanked their former players in a short blog post, highlighting each of their contributions to the fan-favorite esports organization and wished them luck in their future opportunities.

“Today, we are sad to announce the departures of ProdigyAces, Kaysid, Wintrrz, and HighDistortion. We wish them nothing but the best in their future endeavors. Thank you for everything.”

HighDistortion also reflected on his time with Team SoloMid after the split and revealed his reasoning for not sticking with his former team.

The Twitch star explained that a disagreement over a new contract with TSM is ultimately what caused it to fall through, adding, “Minor differences of opinion on both sides for a new contract agreement.”

The popular streamer has been known for being vocal on unfair contracts in the past and has shared his wisdom with other rising players who managed to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup in early April.

Although it is unknown what is next for HighDistortion, he has hinted at some new opportunities for him that are in the works with his announcement that he may reveal soon.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Sienna Mae Gomez is a California-based TikTok star who has seen exponential growth in popularity during the late summer/early autumn of this year.

Although she is only sixteen years old, she has already grown a sizeable platform due to her entertaining dance videos and content advocating for body positivity. She currently has 10.7 million followers on TikTok and 1.3 million followers on Instagram.

While some TikTok stars gained their platform over time, Mae’s rise to TikTok stardom was fairly rapid, with TheNetline reporting that she gained 1.5 million TikTok followers in two weeks.

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
