KEEMSTAR Responds To Criticism From OpTic Diesel on Friday Fortnite Tournament

A dispute has sparked on social media between two prominent gaming community figures, Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem and OpTic Gaming’s Mike “Diesel” Carr.

KEEMSTAR has been organizing and running a ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament each week, inviting big name streamers and YouTubers to take part.


The tournament has been an instant success, drawing in millions of viewers and effectively bringing together the community for what is set to be a weekly tournament.

The tournament features some of the biggest names including many of Diesel’s fellow OpTic members Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, Seth “Scump” Abner, Jack “CouRage” Dunlop and Tyler “TeePee” Polchow.


However, Diesel hit out at KEEMSTAR personally on Twitter, suggesting he is not fit to be the ‘public face’ of the tournament because he is apparently ‘toxic’.

And Diesel did not stop there, going on to even call out some of his close friends for associating themselves with the tournament.

Big names such as TSM’s Ali “Myth” Kabbani, 100 Thieves’ owner and former OpTic member Matt “Nadeshot” Haag and 100 Thieves’ member Nick “NICKMERCS” Kolcheff all take part in the tournament, and Diesel called them out particularly.


KEEMSTAR was quick to respond, questioning Diesel’s contribution to the community himself and saying no one “let him” run it, as he created it himself.

He also later responded with a video explaining his response in more detail.

I’m not going to lie dude, I’m triggered, I’m upset. I just woke up ten minutes ago and I see this Tweet from you, and I’m fucking beyond triggered.

For weeks, I’m sitting here, all day long focusing on this tournament making sure everything runs right. You have no idea the work that’s involved Mike.

You literally have to talk to everyone, you have to be on the phone all day, you have to be contacting people in the tournament, potential sponsors, I’m on the phone with UMG, I’m in meetings, someone has to change a teammate, I have to change the bracket.

There is so much involved in this, it has consumed my god damn life to create this. And I get this tweet from you, and I’m thinking to myself: ‘what the fuck do you do for the community?’

It drives me insane that you can have this opinion, and send this shade this way, when you do nothing. I want to know what you do for this community? Because I’m sitting here grinding, I’m sitting here working.

And do you know how much I get paid, for Friday Fortnite? Do you want to know how much money I make off doing this tournament? Nothing. Nothing. You want to know why I created it? Because I fucking love Fortnite and this community, we needed something like this.

So what do you do? Don’t fucking talk shit, without stepping to the plate.”

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.


Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake’s car collection is the stuff of dream for even die-hard car collectors.

Drake’s insane car collection 2020

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

His Lamborghini Aventador is a special edition LP 700-4 model.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.


Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.


All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
