Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed he wants to create some vlogging content with his hilarious dopplegänger that went viral on Reddit, after tracking him down with the help of his followers.

Reddit user u/draskant posted a side-by-side comparison of him and the former FaZe Clan member, showing extremely similar facial characteristics, revealing he had been stopped thousands of times for photographs from ‘fans’.

After quickly rising to the front page of FortniteBR, the hilarious image spread to Twitter and eventually reached the Fortnite pro himself who shared a surprising reaction.

REDDIT:U/DRASKANTThe Reddit user is the spitting image of the internet star.

Tfue posted the image to his followers and asked for help to find his dopplegänger in order to create some “quality vlog content” with him.

Many content creators reacted to the image with 100 Thieves member Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Holsetter suggesting that a DNA test would be needed to ensure the pair weren’t related.

Fortunately, it seems the 21-year-old has made contact with his lookalike after following him on Twitter, meaning it’s likely the Florida native will be arranging how the pair can meet up.

Given the nature of Tfue’s vlogs, his double may be pushed to his limits to recreate scenes such as jumping from a bridge into a lake that have become iconic on his YouTube channel.

It wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity has encountered a real life lookalike after a streamer was spotted sporting similar gear to Twitch star Dr Disrespect in the wake of his ban from the platform, naming himself ‘Dr Dipsrespect’ and copying the mannerisms of the Doc throughout. 

On that basis, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Tfue’s ‘twin’ attempt to hone his Fortnite skills in the coming months.

We may even see the pair team up, given the TwitchCon winner still has access to his account with the fitting username ‘Not Tfue’.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
