Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has fired back at popular bodybuilder Greg Doucette, who suggested he’s using performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) after he shared photos of his workout progress on Instagram.

Tfue has built a massive fan base online since his rise to the top of Fortnite, with over 8.5 million followers on Twitch. However, after he shared an update showcasing his recent physical transformation, some were skeptical of how impressive his results were after just six months.

Among the critics was IFBB bodybuilder and fitness coach Greg Doucette, a respected figure in the fitness industry, who highlighted Tenney in his “Natty or Not” series using his ‘before and after’ pics to analyze his progress.

After explaining how difficult such a transformation is to achieve, while taking some lighthearted jabs at Tfue during the process, Doucette later claimed that it would be almost impossible to gain the muscle mass naturally and said it’s highly likely that he’s on PEDs such as steroids.

”I am saying that I would bet my life or your life, I would bet all lives on this planet against one dollar that he is not natural,” he added.

Doucette reiterated on a number of occasions that the transformation is extremely impressive and stated that Tfue has amazing genetics. However, the bodybuilding veteran stated that such improvements would take most people many years to achieve naturally.

The YouTuber’s criticism prompted a response from Tfue, who reacted to the video during his June 24 broadcast and fired back at Doucette, claiming he only calls people out for a response.

“I feel like he just calls people out, deep down he knows that I didn’t take steroids to get where I am,” Tfue explained, “but I feel he just says it to try to get me pissed and make a video back. I feel like he’s doing this for publicity.”

Tfue also added that Doucette shared few details on why he thought the Fortnite star was using steroids. The Twitch streamer later claimed that there was one simple reason for his rapid muscle growth.

While many gyms have been closed around the world, with different lockdown measures in place during recent months, Tfue says that the key to getting jacked so quickly his own fully-kitted home gym.

“They don’t want to believe that I got this big naturally because the quarantine was going on and nobody had a gym,” he said. “Meanwhile I have a full private gym that I spent like $100,000 on just for me and my friends to workout in.”

Tfue later compared his progress to PewDiePie, whose body transformation was also referenced in the video.

The Twitch streamer and claimed that it was unfair to compare  him to the incredibly popular YouTuber because Swedish star’s gym had much less to work with.

Elon Musk pleads Overwatch to buff Torbjorn’s turrets

It’s no secret that tech billionaire Elon Musk plays video games, but on October 13, he shocked the internet when he revealed his Overwatch main and how he would buff the hero.

After making a rather random tweet about the “The Illuminaughty” – a clever play on words, YouTuber twomad asked the 49-year-old if he mains Torbjorn in Overwatch.

Regardless of how the weird topic got started, Elon replied saying “um… yes” confirming he does in fact play Blizzard’s hero-based FPS and mains the Swedish engineer.

The unlikely response earned Musk a whopping 26,000 likes. For much of Overwatch’s lifespan, Torb was considered a bit of a joke or throw pick who offered very little benefit on attack.

However, after a major rework, the DPS has grown increasingly stronger and is actually one of the most viable heroes in the game at all levels right now.

Sadly, Musk didn’t state how long he had been playing Overwatch or Torbjorn for that matter, so it’s possible that he had only played when the hero wasn’t as good or only after the big rework happened.

Even the official Overwatch Twitter account decided to get in on the fun and replied to Musk with a picture of a giant Torbjorn turret on Mars.

“We’ve been thinking about this for a while,” they captioned the humorous picture. “Call us.”

Furthermore, Musk went on to explain how he would buff Torbjorn and the ideas were interesting to say the least. “Please buff Torb’s turret!” he exclaimed. “Or maybe 2 weak turrets to allow more strategic degrees of freedom.”

It was certainly an interesting reply and a sign that we could be looking at one of the most ambitious crossovers in history if Overwatch takes Elon up on his idea.

Though it’s unlikely that we’ll see Musk’s ideas make it to the game, but there’s always the Experimental Mode, so it’s possible Elon could end up getting his wish.

Who knows – maybe next time you’re in a game and a player won’t swap off Torb, it may be Elon Musk of all people.
