Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue has been making unsuccessful attempts to hide girlfriend Corinna Kopf from his Twitch stream, as evidenced by her hilarious ‘attack’ on the gamer during a live broadcast.

Tfue was in the midst of a Fortnite stream on March 21 when he appeared to get distracted by Kopf in a bout of play-fighting, jokingly swatting out and giving her the finger.

He then mockingly put up his fists in a fighting stance, after which Kopf appeared to threaten him with something out of view of the camera.

“Do it!” Tfue laughed. “You won’t!’

In response, Kopf threw an unidentifiable object at Tfue’s face, causing him to break out in a fit of laughter.

“Yo!” Tfue chuckled, holding his cheek in feigned shock. “She’s abusive! Are you kidding me?”

This marks the latest of Kopf’s on-stream shenanigans, following her surprise appearance in a March 7 broadcast, where she performed a humorous ASMR session after being caught talking in the background.

That’s not all; another stream on March 16 heard the two getting physical off-camera, with some fans joking that Tfue was noisily kissing his ‘goldfish,’ which he’d previously used as an excuse to explain Corinna’s presence in his streaming room.

Tfue and Corinna made their relationship public with two separate Instagram posts on March 3, closely following Kopf’s messy split with controversial YouTuber Logan Paul.

While Tfue previously claimed that he and Kopf were “just friends,” the two have since gone public across social media, with Kopf posting a series of intimate photos with the gamer on her Instagram.

FBE founders Benny & Rafi Fine called out by staff for “toxic workplace”

Benny and Rafi Fine, the two creators behind the FBE (Fine Brothers entertainment) brand have come back into the spotlight today a year after they stepped back from FBE after former employees publicly accused them of racism and a “toxic” working environment.

In an investigative article by Insider, 26 former employees spoke out about their experiences working for FBE. The company’s former head of casting, Steve Caustey, revealed that the Fine brothers used a three-tier system to rank their “reactors”, and demanded that at least 33% of the people in their “react” videos involved people in the top tier before an episode could be made.

Causey told Insider that there were “more white people at the top” of the tier, which meant that episodes ended up being predominately white.

He said in an interview with them: “It was noticeable, but I don’t think it was intentional. I feel like it might’ve started as unconscious bias, but after a time enough people brought it up that it should have been addressed.”

A former researcher told Insider that FBE staff “profit from the idea that they’re diverse without valuing it authentically. They try to capitalize and commercialize on it as much as they can.”

FBE’s lawyers said to Insider that race wasn’t a factor in decisions such as tiers and video thumbnails, with a spokesperson adding that the Fine brothers “have always endeavored to feature a majority of underrepresented voices in FBE’s content.”

What happened with FBE last year?

In June 2020, a video resurfaced of a comedy sketch Benny Fine did with fellow YouTuber Shane Dawson, wherein Benny was wearing blackface. The footage went viral and led to the two founders receiving extreme backlash.

High profile members of their ‘React’ series, such as Kennedy Zimet, made the decision to leave the channel after the footage went viral, with Zimet saying in a statement shared to Twitter that they felt “blindsided and flat out used, especially since they have not owned up to their actions by apologizing publicly or to their black cast members.”

This led to Mark Plier, who claimed to be a former producer for FBE, to claim on Twitter that the Fine brothers “wanted to benefit from the “diversity” but not benefit diversity”, alleging that YouTube video thumbnails with more than one BAME person were frequently turned down by the pair.

He also claimed that they “would frequently ask for the person of color to be on the right of the thumbnail and not the left, our only conclusion as to why that would be is the left person is the first one you’d see and thus the first impression.”

In further Tweets, Plier alleged that “the culture was so entrenched and they were so unwilling to hear our demands for changes that employee turnover became larger than the company’s actual size in just the 3 years I was there.”

The brothers released a statement apologizing for their “terrible errors of judgment” and ultimately decided to take a step back from the FBE company following the backlash.
