Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani was far from impressed after watching NRG’s Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier try to flirt with a fellow Twitch streamer.

Symfuhny may be regarded as one of the best Fortnite players on the planet, known for his ridiculously quick editing plays and fantastic aim, but his attempts to find a girlfriend have so far been unsuccessful.

Fortunately, the NRG professional was given a helping hand in the pursuit of love from fellow pro Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and his girlfriend Corinna Kopf – who managed to secure Symfuhny the chance to impress fellow streamer, BrookeAB.

Myth mocks Symfuhny’s flirting skills

After watching his teammate be eliminated, Symfuhny attempted to clutch up the game and take home the victory for his new potential companion.

However, Myth wasn’t impressed with his flirting skills and jokingly accused him of using a “paid actor” to create “fake content”.

“Wait what? This is so fake. Paid actors. It’s actually so fake,” Myth joked, “Symfuhny, I’m so disgusted with you creating fake content because you’re bored of Fortnite.”

Myth offers advice to Symfuhny

The TSM member continued to evaluate Symfuhny’s attempt at finding a partner but was dismayed after hearing that Brooke had found out that he only showers his hair.

“Symfuhny, watch this clip, do not talk about you showering!” he exclaimed. “You are a fucked-up individual when it comes to hygiene.

“Do not bring up ‘Smellfuhny’!”

It remains to be seen whether Symfuhny and Brooke will end up dating after Corinna Kopf proposed a double date with her and Tfue.

Nevertheless, Brooke has benefitted massively from her time in the spotlight, managing to hit 1,000 subscribers on Twitch for the first time in her streaming career.

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane discord transphobic drama
Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
