Tfue set to overtake shroud as second most popular streamer

Turner ‘Fortnite has skyrocketed many Twitch careers and you can certainly add Tfue to that list. While he did have a following before Fortnite, he definitely grew exponentially thanks to his top-tier play in the Epic Games battle royale.

Nearly two years later, that growth hasn’t stopped and he’s on the cusp of surpassing shroud as the second most followed Twitch channel. This is no small task as shroud is essentially one of the ‘legacy’ Twitch channels, and has been around since the early days of the platform.

Shroud TwitchShroud is one of Twitch’s biggest stars.

At the time of writing, Tfue is sitting at 6,450,288 followers while shroud has 6,578,357. Both streamers are incredibly popular and each gain followers every time they stream, but Tfue’s growth is currently faster than shroud’s. 

This is likely due to Tfue consistently being at the top of the Fortnite directory while shroud plays a variety of different things.

If Tfue does catch shroud, it will still be a very long time before he’s able to catch Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins, who is sitting at over 14 million followers, and still grows daily.

When could the leap happen?

If the trend continues, we could see Tfue surpass shroud as early as July, provided shroud doesn’t begin a meteoric rise at the same time. 

Tfue is the fastest growing channel in the past 30 days and part of the reason may be due to all the extra eyes on him as a result of the FaZe lawsuit.

That lawsuit, complete with all the drama, is still ongoing and we’ll keep you updated with the information as it unfolds.

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
