Following Tfue‘s first public statement on the ongoing legal battle between him and FaZe Clan, his older brother Jack ‘Joogsquad’ Tenney took aim at FaZe owner Banks on social media.

Tfue finally gave his side of the story on May 22, or at least partially, as he demanded that FaZe Clan make the contract available for all to see, suggesting that it would back up his claim that it was ‘oppressive’.

Ricky ‘Banks‘ Banks, one of FaZe Clan’s founding members and current owners, responded publicly once again, refuting Tfue’s claims and confirming that they would release the contract, with express written permission from their now-former player and content creator.

Tfue didn’t respond further, but his brother Joogsquad, who is internet famous in his own right thanks to his YouTube channel with over 4.5 million subscribers, hit back straight at Banks.

After Banks’ claim that FaZe “tried to fix the situation”, Joogsquad retorted that his attempt to act as though they had done nothing wrong was “manipulative”, and went on to argue that if Banks truly wanted what was best for his brother, he would have released him.

Joogsquad also questioned Banks’ true power within the organization, after he claimed that ‘higher-ups’ would need approve the contract being made public.

Banks responded, arguing that he felt owed a degree of loyalty from Tfue after helping launch his career, but Joogsquad disagreed, explaining that as his brother he had helped Tfue also, but never expected anything in return.

Joogsquad went on to call Tfue’s contract the ‘worst ever’, as well as labelling it “illegal”. As a final word, he questioned Banks’ ‘friendship’ with Tfue, stating “You don’t do someone a favor to hold it over their head later. Friends don’t do that.”

Banks has claimed that the contract will be released “momentarily”, but at the time of writing is still currently private.

Small streamer emotional after PewDiePie donates

On September 24, Twitch streamer BluWolfie123 was playing the wildly popular title Among Us when he received a donation from PewDiePie. Stunned and not sure if it was really the YouTuber, the personality exclaimed “That’s f**king insane. What the hell! It’s my first donation!”

On October 15, the entertainer decided to donate to the streamer a second time. “This is the same [streamer] from last time. Hey, he grew in viewers, good for him!” Pewds said, as he donated another $100. Shocked, BluWolfie exclaimed, “What the f**k?!”

The Twitch streamer then asked if PewDiePie was watching him live, before thanking him: “Holy s**t, thank you! I wanted to say thank you. I commented on your last video, but it got buried. Yo, if you’re there, I wanted to say thank you before. I wanted to thank you directly. If you’re here, thank you! You’re f**king awesome! I can not thank you enough.”

(Topic starts at 5:00.)

Kjellberg thanked Wolfie for his kind words and then told viewers to check out the user’s Twitch channel. “Check out BluWolfie, he’s so wholesome,” he said. The streamer further commented on the situation on his About page. “I got super lucky thanks to the Pewds and his community and I’m super happy.”

Pewds also gave away money to several other small channels on the Amazon-owned streaming platform – a few of whom cried over the popular YouTuber popping in to watch their broadcast.

This isn’t the first time PewDiePie has donated money. For months, he has been donating all of his streaming subscriber money to various charities. In October, he sent a mental health charity $144k.
