Nearly everyone has had something to say about the ongoing Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney and FaZe Clan lawsuit, and now you can add YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg to the list.

Tfue’s ongoing battle with FaZe Clan to get out of his contract is arguably one of the biggest things to happen to esports ever.


FaZe Clan has been reluctant to outright release him from his contract, which is something that PewDiePie is confused about, as it would just be something simple to do and allows both sides to move on.

YouTube: PewDiePiePewDiePie weighed in on the Tfue and FaZe Clan drama.

PewDiePie made sure to get several jabs in at FaZe, especially when they showed parts of the contract in their video. 


“Whoa, careful there buddy,” he said. “You’re showing a bit too much information. Wow, thanks for releasing the contract – now we can go through all of it.”

He said pretty much the same when FaZe only revealed parts of an email that was sent to Tfue.

FaZe ClanTfue has been trying to get out of contract with FaZe Clan.

FaZe says they won’t just release Tfue because fans have invested too much into Tfue as a member of FaZe. 


However, Tfue isn’t interested in fixing his relationship with FaZe, so PewDiePie thinks the situation is just weird all around.

“Tfue clearly wants nothing to do with FaZe Clan, so what kind of relationship are you preserving,” he wondered. “The culture and the relationship of gaming in general if they drop him would be hurt, what the fuck are you talking about? That culture is ruined because you didn’t drop him.”

The situation as a whole got messy fast as everything was quickly thrown into the open when Tfue filed his initial lawsuit.

This led FaZe Banks to go on a Twitter rant and even call out members of other organizations such as Nadeshot, leading to a trainwreck of a situation.


The lawsuit is far from over so look for this saga to continue.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
