Epic Games’ worldwide Creative Director Donald Mustard has had his Twitter hacked, with the hackers saying some unsavory things and threatening to ban prominent streamers.

Mustard has regularly been an important figurehead for Fortnite since its release in September 2017, making the most of his Twitter following by hinting at upcoming features and additions to the game.

However, the hack has seen his account compromised and countless posts made in the short time since it happened.

Twitter: Donald MustardMustard has been an important community figurehead in Fortnite.

The first tweet called for Mustard’s followers to follow another Twitter user, presumably one of the people doing the hacking, before “announcing” a Winter Royale Solos tournament, calling Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s squad the “best in the game” and telling FaZe Clan’s Jarvis ‘Jarvis’ Kaye to “keep crying.”

They then also tweeted that if they get 5000 Retweets, Ninja will be “banned from Fortnite.” All tweets can be seen in the screenshots provided below.

After these tweets, there was silence from Mustard’s account for a while, with no updates from the man himself at the time of writing.

It is not yet known how the hackers managed to gain control of Mustard’s account, but needless to say, followers need to take every one of these tweets and the ones following with a pinch of salt, until we can confirm that Mustard is back in full control of his account.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once one of the Kings of Twitch when Fortnite was taking off. However, the TSM star has fallen off the radar in the last 12 months. Fans are still holding out hope for his return though, and even Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is trying to push him back live.

Hamlinz and Tfue were at the top of Fortnite together back in 2018 and 2019. They duo’d numerous times, and their fanbases were heavily intertwined.

However, Tfue has gone on to bigger and better things, but Hamlinz has fallen off the radar. He hasn’t streamed in over six months, and it seems like the community is antsy for the “30 minute a month” streamer’s return.

Hamlinz hasn’t streamed since March 2020, but his fans are trying to change that.

Tfue shared a conversation he recently had with Hamlinz on Twitter, with a few comments trying to nudge the TSM streamer to return to the platform.

“Bro you forgot to end your stream. I don’t know if you meant to,” Hamlinz said to Tfue after his November 17 broadcast.

Tfue came back with a tongue-in-cheek comment, but one that resonated with a lot of people in the Twitch community. “Bro you forgot to start yours,” he said in reply.

It comes after the Twitch community continues to rally behind Hamlinz to make his return to the platform. Hamlinz last streamed on March 17, 2020 ⁠— over six months ago. In the last 12 months, he has streamed a total of 105 hours ⁠— a far cry from numbers he was pulling in 2018.

While he was averaging over 10,000 viewers right up until the end, Hamlinz’s disappearance has worried fans. He hasn’t just been inactive on Twitch, but also across social media, Hamlinz has very rarely posted.

However, there is a chance that the TSM star could be returning to streaming. Hamlinz said in an October 26 tweet he was “feeling like [himself again].”

The streamer took some time off across 2019 to deal with personal issues. He was suffering health issues earlier in the year, and then his grandfather passed away later in the year. His grandmother was also diagnosed with breast cancer.

“I needed some time by myself to rekindle, get my thoughts together, and get myself together, because I’ve never lost anyone close,” he told fans in October.

While Hamlinz hasn’t locked in a return stream date yet, his fans are hoping it’ll be just around the corner. Better yet, he could come back alongside his old duo Daequan, and live it up like its the early days of Fortnite all over again.

That’s sure to get the fans excited again, if it ever ends up happening.
