Popular streamers Darryle ‘Hamlinz‘ Hamlin and Ben ‘DrLupo‘ Lupo engaged in a hilarious back-and-forth of roasts, all while the qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup were going on. 

The Fortnite Battle Royale has given prominence to numerous entertaining figures in the gaming community, two of them being Hamlinz and DrLupo.

Both are household names in the online gaming community, known for their great sense of humor and ability to unleash some unforgiving roasts if need be.

Fans were treated to some quality banter between the two, as they exchanged some verbal jabs at each other during Week 7 of the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers.

GFUELHamlinz started the roast war with DrLupo after questioning his fashion sense in Fortnite BR.

It all started when Hamlinz decided to listen to his chat and randomize his skin combo, which resulted in an awkward set of cosmetic items. He immediately used the combo to start roasting DrLupo’s fashion sense in the game. 

“Why did my chat want me to put my sh*t on random,” he said. “I literally have a bot combo skin right now. This is some sh*t DrLupo would wear. This is some DrLupo skin combo. The f*ck is this? Oh mother f*cker!”

DrLupo fires back

Inevitable, the roast ended up finding its way to DrLupo, who was busy helping cast the NA East and West qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup.

Being away from home did not stop the star streamer from recording his reaction to the roast and putting it on Twitter. 

“Your boy Hamlinz looking like he shops at Baby Gap on the daily,” he roasted back. “Every shirt he wears is extra medium, and those shoes are probably Velcro – don’t lie.”

It didn’t come as a major shock to see Lupo immediately direct a roast at Hamlinz’s lack of height, which has been the subject of a multitude of jokes in the online gaming community.

However, the funniest part about the return jab was probably not even what Lupo said, but rather at how he kept a serious and stone-faced expression throughout the entire clip, which was probably not easy to do. 

Hamlinz responds to Lupo’s roast

The back-and-forth didn’t stop there, as Lupo’s roast was caught by Hamlinz, who both reacted to it in a response tweet and live while streaming.

While he didn’t say anything back to Lupo that would continue their war of words, he also refused to back down, jokingly saying that Lupo “don’t want no f*cking smoke” on his stream.

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.
