Former TSM Fortnite pro Cowboy has shared his official response to accusations of inappropriate messages to an underage female.

Last week TSM dropped Cowboy from the roster after accusations by an underage streamer surfaced. Cowboy has released an official response to these accusations.


These accusations were brought to light by Twitch streamer Faith, who had obtained the messages Cowboy allegedly had sent to the 16-year-old streamer.

“Imagine messaging a 16-year-old girl when you’re married,” Faith said of the debacle. “Imagine you’re on TSM and you message an underage girl saying, ‘Looking good.’”


Cowboy had a short response to those accusations on his Twitch channel but he has remained out of the public eye since.

“Please don’t believe everything you read on the internet,” he wrote. “I am not married and have hired a lawyer to clear my name. I am not allowed to talk about anything, but I am not a pedophile.”

On March 13, Cowboy released an official statement on Twitter proclaiming his innocence and calling all of the accusations against him false.


“There are many words I’d like to share with you guys at this moment but, given that I’m in the process of trying to get to these false accusations and clear my name, this is what I can share: The suggestion that I would hit on underage girls on Twitter is ridiculous and totally false,” he wrote.

He goes on to say the fire for competitive Fortnite is still alive for him and he still wants everyone in the community to still succeed.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
