Nadeshot hits back after drama over Biden Super Bowl meme
100 Thieves founder Nadeshot has hit back at critics following a social media storm for hitting out at US President Joe Biden over “farming impressions.”
Super Bowl LVIII on February 11 saw the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers to take home a back-to-back NFL championship. But following the game, it was US President Joe Biden who caught the internet’s attention, posting a bizarre meme of himself with laser-red eyes.
100 Thieves co-founder Nadeshot wasn’t impressed and proceeded to call out Biden in a series of posts on Twitter/X. “This is the weirdest sh*t I’ve ever seen on Twitter and it’s not even close. Get him out,” he wrote.
The former CoD champion began receiving backlash, with one fan assuming him to be a Trump supporter. However, hitting back, Nadeshot claimed his beliefs have nothing to do with the former US President, and explained his issue lies with anybody “farming impressions” on social media while representing the country.
“Biden is the leader of the free world memeing about the Super Bowl while the US is falling apart,” he said. “When you start paying taxes and see this is the guy that is running our country, it drives me nuts.”
He added: “I don’t care if it’s a social media manager, I don’t want the account, him or any one representing his office farming impressions and making light of the incredible amount of work to be done to fix all the issues in this country. It’s beyond frustrating and I don’t care if you agree or anyone else for that matter.”
Nadeshot: “I don’t care if anybody agrees”
Going live on Twitch the next day on February 12, Nadeshot continued to hit back at critics. “I don’t care if anybody agrees with me,” he explained. “As a man, a citizen of the United States of America, I don’t want the President tweeting out memes where he has these red lasers in his eyes.”
Nadeshot continued: “Meanwhile we got things just happening all over the world. I want a strong leader who’s not f**king farming impressions on Twitter in a very pivotal time for our country.”
Some fans have since explained their “disappointment” with Nadeshot’s outburst, with some even claiming he makes it harder to be a fan of the organization.
Before retiring from professional Call of Duty in 2015, and kicking off his own esports organization 100 Thieves, Nadeshot was one of the biggest names in the scene — winning several championships under OpTic Gaming.
