TikToker Vinnie Hacker’s girlfriend has threatened to leave her job after fans of the creator spammed her with hate comments.

Hacker is a growing star on the TikTok scene – he has 4.5 million followers on his main TikTok account as well as 1.5 million followers on his Instagram.

Known mostly for his lip-sync videos on TikTok, he has also gained a following by being part of content house Sway Gaming – which is a spin-off from notorious content house the Sway House. Other big names in Sway Gaming include Griffin Johnson, Quinton Griggs, and Kio Cyr.

Fans recently spotted that he was getting close to fellow creator Faith Ordway. Soon after they posted a TikTok together, Faith was bombarded with comments about her and her past social media posts.

In a series of tweets, Faith expressed how badly she was affected by the unwanted attention, writing “I’m done with all the hate and people trying to put dirt on my name. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone.

“If you chose to believe it go ahead don’t care anymore, you’re all just ruining my mental health over a man going through depths trying to make me look like a bad person”

But this soon escalated, with Faith threatening to quit her job as a result of the online hate she had received: “I’ll fly home and just quit the job I love, and stop seeing someone who I like since it’s caused issues… I care more about Vinnie and his image than my own, so I’ll dip because you’re bringing him issues”

Vinnie himself expressed his opinion on Twitter, explaining, “I’m removing all my negative/annoying posts. It’s time for change and it’s time to spread positivity. I apologize if I triggered anyone in any way, All I want is for you guys to be happy and enjoy content.”

After several comments from Vinnie’s fans accused Faith of racism, pointing out old tweets and TikToks, she eventually issued an apology. “I’ll apologize anyway. I’m deeply sorry if I offended anyone, take the apology or don’t. I don’t know how to handle 1000 people trying to attack me.”

Meanwhile, it looks as though Vinnie’s fans aren’t conceding, as screenshots of Faith’s comments are still being blasted on TikTok room.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
