YouTube star Mr Beast held a star-studded rock-paper-scissors charity tournament, featuring some of the net’s biggest entertainers — but one of the contestants accidentally leaked his phone number during their own stream.

Fortnite pro and Twitch streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney took to Twitter as the tournament was underway to apologize to Mr Beast, writing, “I’m so sorry Mr Beast”

As it turns out, Tfue had accidentally leaked the code to get into the competitors’ chat group — as well as Mr Beast’s private phone number, as evidenced by a series of screenshots taken by fast-fingered fans.

Tfue unfortunately leaked Mr Beast’s private phone number, as well as the private code to the tournament chat group.

Due to the serious leak of private information, fellow streaming star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins spoke out on the matter, writing in a Tweet, “Dude Turner leaked the code to the private chat while he’s streaming.”

Ninja commented on Tfue’s apparent leak of Mr Beast’s phone number – which led to a heated argument between the two streamers.

Tfue then hit back at the Mixer broadcaster with a pointed Tweet of his own writing profanity towards Ninja

This spurred a slew of replies from Ninja, who argued that Turner shouldn’t have been streaming the tournament at all as a means to direct his viewers toward Mr Beast’s broadcast, where they can directly donate to the charity fund.

“We’re not supposed to be streaming this bro!” Ninja replied. “The 50k you have can be donated to the main stream where people can donate to the charity. …also would have prevented the leaks.”

Tfue went on to call out Ninja in a heated rant on his own stream, claiming that the Mixer streamer was going to be more offended than Mr Beast, himself.

Tournament competitor and content creator LAZARBEAM also chimed in on the issue, noting that there was spam in the private tournament chat that included a slew of racial slurs.

Ninja’s wife and manager, Jessica Blevins, also spoke out on the issue, reiterating Ninja’s claim that Tfue was told not to stream the tournament so as to direct viewers toward the main broadcast.

 

Mr Beast’s charity then froze, with Mr Beast discovering the problem on-air. Technical difficulties are currently being reviewed as the crew looks to reboot the tournament.

Tfue immediately expressed guilt at accidentally leaking the sensitive information, quickly shutting down his own stream shortly after the tournament broadcast froze.

Tfue expressed regret over the slip-up and ended his stream.

Before he ended his broadcast, Tfue clarified that he’d donated $10,000 after the slip-up, and encouraged his viewers to donate, too.

“You guys should donate, as well, to Mr Beast’s stream, so I feel like I didn’t do anything other than mess the charity fundraiser up,” he stated. “So, that’d be sick.”

As the tournament progressed, Tfue finally addressed the matter, openly apologizing before he faced off with Pokimane and asking his fanbase to donate to the cause.

Thankfully, Mr Beast took the slip-up in stride and clarified that he wasn’t upset with Tfue over the matter.

“It’s fine, the viewers are almost back to what we had,” he replied. “It’s all for charity. No hard feelings.”

Despite the technical difficulties, Mr Beast clarified there’s no bad blood between him and Tfue.

Despite all the drama, it seems that Mr Beast’s stream is nearly back to its original viewership, already having raised over $374k (at the time of writing) and even seeing celebrity guests like Jack Black in the mix of internet superstars as they work together for a good cause.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

A post shared by charli d’amelio (@charlidamelio)

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

(Topic begins at 14:57)

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
