KEEMSTAR announced a $100,000 tournament series for battle royale and sandbox crafting title Creative Destruction on November 9. However, some fans asked that he bring back his 'Friday Fortnite' series, instead - to which KEEMSTAR had a vehement response.

“I will never run a Fortnite tourney as long as I live,” KEEMSTAR Tweeted. “Fuck Fortnite!”

He followed up this statement with a second Tweet, claiming that he would never support Epic Games due to the alleged disrespect he was shown after teasing a return of Friday Fortnite in early September. “The amount of disrespect Epic Games showed me has made me an enemy for LIFE!” he wrote. “I’ll ever support anything they do!”

He then uploaded a video on the matter, where he called out those who felt that Epic Games were within their rights to create their own ‘Friday Night Fortnite’ initiative.

“If you have this mindset, ‘It’s their game, they can do what they want,’ you’re an enemy of gaming entertainment,” he said.

KEEMSTAR’s ‘Friday Fortnite’ initiative was dashed due to reported scheduling conflicts with Epic Games’ ‘Summer Skirmish’ tournament series, as well as the company’s decision to cap the competition’s prize money.

Since then, KEEMSTAR has announced a major tournament series for Creative Destruction, which has seen interest from big names in Fortnite like FaZe Tfue and 100 Thieves' Kenith, among others.
