The long weekend for the popular Fortnite streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney continues as he announced in a February 1 Twitter post that his phone had been pickpocketed while in a nightclub the night prior.
Tfue, along with a plethora of other Twitch stars and NFL players, participated in the Twitch Rivals Fortnite Streamer bowl this weekend during Super Bowl weekend in Miami, Florida.
On Saturday, the former FaZe Clan player tweeted out that while at a Miami nightclub on Friday evening, his phone had been pickpocketed from him - but he didn’t include any details about the incident, at the time.
Someone pick pocketed my phone in the club last night smh

Prior to this recent pickpocketing, Tfue shared shots of the interior of the nightclub scene to his Instagram story. Fifteen hours later, he shared the update on February 1 that his phone had been lifted, presumably announcing this news from a new phone.
Responses poured in from numerous other streamers and Fortnite players like TimTheTatman, Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, and benjyfishy, who expressed utter dismay that something like this had happened to Tfue two Miami nights in a row.

The night prior, he tweeted out very late in the evening that he had just been robbed of his Royal Oak AP Arabic Dial diamond watch, worth thousands of dollars. According to Tfue, the robbers had run away with the accessory, but he himself was unhurt.
He was evidently unharmed in this second incident, as well. Having to pay for a new phone and watch is certainly annoying, as is the process of submitting police reports if he chooses to do so, but there’s comfort in knowing that the Fortnite star wasn’t hurt in either of the two back-to-back thefts.
This second incident occurred after Tfue and his Fortnite partner, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, won second place at the Streamer Bowl, winning $80,000 for charity.
The Twitch star took tournament MVP honors for his consistently excellent performances throughout the competition. Tfue and Kyler Murray earned 16 eliminations and an average placement of 7.25.
The two incidents don't seem to be affecting Tfue's plans to stay in Miami for the Super Bowl.
He shared on his Instagram a story of Miami Heat basketball player Meyers Leonard showing off a Tfue shirt at his locker room, and more footage from the nightclub of him on stage with NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal and rapper DaBaby.
