Popular rapper Tory Lanez has hit out at players and fans following his insane plays during KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament, as some suggested it wasn’t actually him playing.

Before Epic Games announced that they would be investing $100 million into their esports prize pool for the year, hosting tournaments such as the weekly World Cup Qualifiers, Friday Fortnite was seen as the biggest tournament of the week and featured many of the top players battling it out.

The tournament was hosted by KEEMSTAR, who announced the return of Friday Fortnite after FaZe Banks decided to use the money they collected from Tfue amid the contract drama, to sponsor the tournament’s prize pool for a few weeks.

SypherPK / TwitchSypherPK was impressed watching Tory Lanez rack up kills vs Aydan and Elevate.

The Canadian rapper, Tory Lanez was among some of the biggest names in gaming for the return of the fan-favorite tournament, and he had some choice words for people who didn’t believe he was playing, after beating some of the tournament favorites, Ghost Aydan and 100 Thieves’ Elevate.

Although Tory Lanez was streaming on Twitch during the first few rounds of the tournament, many fans were skeptical that it was him playing as he did not have a webcam or a microphone on during his stream.

Tory Lanez posted a short video addressing some of the claims and stated that people were just mad because of how good he was, saying “I came and bodied a bunch of y’all on Fortnite. I’m a rapper and y’all mad because I bodied you?”

He then told popular streamer, SypherPK that he could have the win in their scheduled match, as they were both part of the same team, Luminosity Gaming, saying, “Yo Sypher, You can have the next game bro, you’re Luminosity imma give it to you.”

Tory Lanez went on to play the Loser’s Quarterfinal out after he had turned the stream offline and did end up falling to SypherPK and High Distortion placing top 6 in the tournament.

Despite the controversy, Friday Fortnite was seen as a massive success overall as viewer numbers rivaled that of the Fortnite World Cup Qualifiers, with over 10 million unique viewers.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
