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.

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.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
