In the video uploaded May 23, KEEMSTAR interviewed FaZe Clan CEO Lee Trink, allowing him to air his side of the ordeal to the public.
When talking about Tfue’s contract which leaked previously, Trink claimed that a completely different team put Tfue’s contract together and once Trink took over, he amended the contracts for anyone new signing into the Clan, with Tfue still signed to the old one.
Trink also said that Tfue’s intentions when starting the lawsuit were to break out of his FaZe contract so he could start his own organization, stating, “He was actually never interested in creating a new deal. What he was interested in was creating a competing org. That’s impossible. We’re never going to get there.”
Pokimane wasn’t too happy about the interview and shared her thoughts to her viewers during a livestream, saying, “You guys have to be very careful about what you trust on the internet, okay? I think it is inappropriate for KEEMSTAR to be making a video like this.”
“Knowing his relationship with FaZe and with [Ricky] Banks, there is no way for him not to be biased, okay?” she rants, visibly upset by the video’s contents. “I promise you, you will never see KEEMSTAR say anything bad about FaZe. Never.”
While KEEMSTAR isn’t officially affiliated with FaZe Clan, he has a longstanding history of being friends with various members of the org, leading to Pokimane’s comments.
We certainly don’t need any more beef added to the Tfue and FaZe Clan debacle but it’s understandable that with a situation this colossal, influencers would have heated opinions, especially when they air such a big portion of their lives online.
But this wouldn’t be the first time that Pokimane and KEEMSTAR have fired shots at each other – the pair have been at each other’s throats for a while.
Pokimane and KEEMSTAR’s long-running beef
KEEMSTAR called the female Twitch star a “fake bitch” in November after they got into a Twitter spat over him allegedly “hating on innocent fans”.
The pair sent a series of Twitter videos back and forth, before the Drama Alert host uploaded a clip where he accused her of “being on a pedestal” and dropped the “fake bitch” insult.
Pokimane then clapped back, tweeting, “Resorting to cheap shots for easy Twitter likes, a classic grown man’s move. I’ll just end by saying that the fact you deleted your Tweets is enough proof that even you think what you did was messed up.”
ah resorting to cheap shots for easy twitter likes, a classic grown man’s move. I’ll just end by saying that the fact you deleted your tweets is enough proof that even you think what you did was messed up (or you can’t even stand by your own opinion lol). :wave::skin-tone-2:

It wasn’t long before they argued again, with KEEMSTAR uploading a video by YouTuber ‘Memology’ to Twitter captioned ‘Pokimane: Gotta Strike Them All.’
The video calls out Pokimane for allegedly abusing YouTube’s copyright system, going into detail about a time the creator received a copyright strike against his channel for using a clip she owned in one of his videos.
