Friday Fortnite is the biggest event of the week for Fortnite, but that hasn’t stopped players from dropping out last minute – something Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem isn’t happy about as he has now promised major changes for the event going forward.

KEEMSTAR said he was cutting the number of teams in Fortnite Friday to eight, in a since-deleted tweet, after having five players tell him just before the event began they couldn’t play.

“Starting Next Friday we are cutting the #FridayFortnite teams down to only 16 players and 8 teams,” he tweeted. “I just had 5 people tell me they can’t play 2 hours before the event starts. This (has) been happening every week. Then we have to fill in the spots with (randoms). No more.”

KEEMSTAR’s deleted tweet.

This tweet comes on the heels of Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney revealing he made both FaZe Sway and Clix drop out of the tournament in order to practice for the Epic Games-hosted Trios tournament.

Tfue announced they were both on his team and then later took credit for making them drop out of the event at the last minute. Though it is unclear whether he was serious or just being a major troll.

Both Sway and Clix gave statements on Twitter addressing why they dropped out of Friday Fortnite.

“Instead of playing Fortnite Friday I think it’s best for me to practice with my trio as a pro player,” Clix tweeted. “I will be streaming Trio Cup (Saturday) and (Sunday). Thanks for understanding. I already talked with Dellor and he understands.”

“Sitting out of Fortnite Friday due to practicing for Cash Cup (tomorrow),” said Sway.

While both of these players had solid reasons for backing out, Keem argued he didn’t know there was another event and that it doesn’t pull close to the same numbers as Friday Fortnite.

“I didn’t even know there was an event tomorrow,” Keem said in a deleted tweet. “(Nor did) a lot of people. Because whatever this event is tomorrow doesn’t pull anywhere near the views of Friday Fortnite pulls. And if people had to practice they should’ve notified me days ago not today!”

Keem’s deleted tweet.

For what it’s worth, Keem isn’t upset that Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins missed the event because he’s stuck on a plane.

We’ll have to see if he actually goes through with the rule change or if he has a change of heart before next week.

Nessa Barrett has been accused of throwing Mads Lewis some shade after hiding comments from fans on Twitter suggesting the two collaborate, but the TikTok star has hit back and claimed nothing was shady about it at all.

Nessa Barrett and Mads Lewis were inseparable once upon a time. The two of them were an unstoppable force, with millions of fans between them across Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

Unfortunately, it seems like their friendship came to a bitter end after Nessa Barrett stopped following Mads Lewis on social media and deleted the many pictures she had of them posing together.

However, Mads is still following Nessa on Instagram and hasn’t taken down their pictures together, which had led to their fans and followers believing the bitterness is one-sided. Some have even speculated that their falling out might tie into the drama between Nessa and Chase Hudson.

Either way, it seems like something happened between them. Now, Nessa Barrett has been accused of adding more fuel to the fire after many claimed she shaded her ex-best friend once again.

Did Nessa Barrett shade Mads Lewis on Twitter?

Nessa Barrett posted a harmless Tweet stating, “Feature ideas for a song or just curious.” However, many of her followers weren’t sure what she meant and chimed in with countless collaboration suggestions.

A portion of them rummaged through a list of replies she had hidden and discovered Mads Lewis was a common denominator. “Pleasure feature Avani or Mads or Josh,” wrote one fan. “MADS,” and “Madison Lewis,” wrote two others.

Some of them found it a little odd and claimed it was another example of her throwing Mads Lewis some shade.

This prompted Nessa Barrett to respond, saying, “A lot of [people] didn’t know what I meant and were commenting song ideas to my tweet so I liked the first one that I saw was actually giving me feature ideas,” she said.

 “Nothing [about] this was supposed to be shady,” she added. “I just liked the first one that I saw.”

Needless to say, the situation and her response sparked a bit of division on social media.

Some believe there is unquestionable truth in her words, and the whole situation has been blown way out of proportion.

Others claim it’s pretty clear Nessa Barrett wasn’t keen on seeing Mads Lewis name in the suggestions, so she filtered them out.

Either way, it seems like the falling out is still fresh, and they won’t be mending their friendship anytime soon. However, time heals all wounds, and many mutual fans would love to see them reunited once again down the track.
