Popular YouTuber MrBeast, king of big-budget projects and social experiments, may be gearing up to collaborate with Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue, as hinted at by a Tweet he published on December 3.

MrBeast has gone to great lengths to support YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, who is currently in a close race with Bollywood label T-Series to secure the most subscribers on the video platform.

While MrBeast has teased the possibility of working with social media stars Logan and Jake Paul in an effort to boost PewDiePie’s subscriber count, he may also be working with Tfue, if his Tweet holds any legitimacy.

“Sorry for stealing Tfue from his stream,” MrBeast wrote over a screenshot of Tfue’s Twitch channel, which revealed that the streamer had left his setup to go on a break. “He will be back in a bit.”

A collaboration with Tfue could likewise mark PewDiePie’s first venture into Fortnite, which he jokingly admitted could send him soaring above his competition in a previous video.

This wouldn’t be the first time MrBeast has undertaken a crazy scheme to help PewDiePie, either; he rescued the Swede from an early defeat by buying out every billboard in his entire city during a massive advertising campaign, which saw a huge increase in subscribers for PewDiePie’s channel.

MrBeast even went on to say PewDiePie’s name 100,000 times in an 11-hour-long video on November 25, and even teased a possible trip to India to undertake yet another advertisement spree – along with buying an ad for the 2019 Super Bowl.

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.
