Popular Fortnite Battle Royale pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is suing esports organization FaZe for being signed into an “oppressive” contract – and YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is expressing some sympathy towards Tfue’s situation.

PewDiePie spoke out on the drama during an episode of ‘Pew News’ on May 23, where he warned content creators and esports pros alike to refrain from signing any contracts before hiring a lawyer to review them.

“If there’s one message from this, it’s don’t sign anything, unless you know what you’re getting 100% into,” Kjellberg said of the matter. “…get a lawyer to look after it. I don’t care how small of a YouTuber you are.”

PewDiePie likewise felt that the contract drama was “fishy” as a whole, claiming that he understood Tfue’s concerns over the alleged 80/20 brand deal split while keeping Bank’s feelings of betrayal in mind.

The YouTuber went on to take issue with Tfue’s response video addressing the drama, claiming that it seemed like fans had to “take his word” that his contract was “oppressive.”

PewDiePie isn’t the only major YouTuber to speak out on the drama, either; Ethan Klein, of comedy duo H3H3, called one of Bank’s Tweets addressing the matter as a potential breach of NDA, asking Tfue to release the contract, himself.

“This tweet seems like a breach of confidentiality, which could void any NDA you may have signed, Tfue, meaning you could release the contract yourself,” Klein wrote.

Tfue has since asked FaZe to “release the contract” in question, which Banks admitted was “horrible” – but not without calling Tfue a “selfish asshole” for wanting to create his own organization in response to the drama.

“Turner isn’t some martyr for the greater good, he’s a selfish asshole who doesn’t give a fuck about anyone but himself,” Banks Tweeted. “Like, seriously, homie? You’re down the street from me. Let’s talk.”

The FaZe drama isn’t limited to Tfue and Banks, alone: even Tfue’s girlfriend, Instagram model Corinna Kopf, has been dragged into the debacle, claiming that some angry fans are blaming her for Tfue’s sudden lawsuit.

FaZe is set to release a statement discussing the contract at 5 PM EST via Drama Alert.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

Mess with the Botez, get the shoe.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
