Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once one of the Kings of Twitch when Fortnite was taking off. However, the TSM star has fallen off the radar in the last 12 months. Fans are still holding out hope for his return though, and even Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is trying to push him back live.

Hamlinz and Tfue were at the top of Fortnite together back in 2018 and 2019. They duo’d numerous times, and their fanbases were heavily intertwined.

However, Tfue has gone on to bigger and better things, but Hamlinz has fallen off the radar. He hasn’t streamed in over six months, and it seems like the community is antsy for the “30 minute a month” streamer’s return.

Hamlinz hasn’t streamed since March 2020, but his fans are trying to change that.

Tfue shared a conversation he recently had with Hamlinz on Twitter, with a few comments trying to nudge the TSM streamer to return to the platform.

“Bro you forgot to end your stream. I don’t know if you meant to,” Hamlinz said to Tfue after his November 17 broadcast.

Tfue came back with a tongue-in-cheek comment, but one that resonated with a lot of people in the Twitch community. “Bro you forgot to start yours,” he said in reply.

It comes after the Twitch community continues to rally behind Hamlinz to make his return to the platform. Hamlinz last streamed on March 17, 2020 ⁠— over six months ago. In the last 12 months, he has streamed a total of 105 hours ⁠— a far cry from numbers he was pulling in 2018.

While he was averaging over 10,000 viewers right up until the end, Hamlinz’s disappearance has worried fans. He hasn’t just been inactive on Twitch, but also across social media, Hamlinz has very rarely posted.

However, there is a chance that the TSM star could be returning to streaming. Hamlinz said in an October 26 tweet he was “feeling like [himself again].”

The streamer took some time off across 2019 to deal with personal issues. He was suffering health issues earlier in the year, and then his grandfather passed away later in the year. His grandmother was also diagnosed with breast cancer.

“I needed some time by myself to rekindle, get my thoughts together, and get myself together, because I’ve never lost anyone close,” he told fans in October.

While Hamlinz hasn’t locked in a return stream date yet, his fans are hoping it’ll be just around the corner. Better yet, he could come back alongside his old duo Daequan, and live it up like its the early days of Fortnite all over again.

That’s sure to get the fans excited again, if it ever ends up happening.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
