Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has called out Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem after he uploaded a Drama Alert video talking about Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s FaZe Clan contract.

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.

TFUEFaZe CEO claims that Tfue is trying to start his own organization.

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.”

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.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
