This morning the Hollywood Reporter released a bombshell of a story that says FaZe Clan star Tfue is suing the organization.

Our initial article covers that situation in depth and features replies and responses from around the esports and gaming industries.

But this reply directly from FaZe Clan owner FaZe Banks needs to be its own article as it has a lot of points.

He tweeted his own response which is covered below, but first he snapped at 100 Thieves owner Nadeshot for tweeting out his piece.

I had a feeling that tweet might be deleted… The latest gaming copypasta

After that response, Nadeshot backtracked a bit apologizing for jumping into the drama.

Banks reply was aggressive and something that will have long-term repercussions for one or both of these esports business moguls. Here is a slightly more measured response from Banks:

The problem is that Tfue never said anything about prize money. In fact, he confirmed they never took any money from prize payouts just last week which was covered in this article.

From the Hollywood Reporter article: “[Tfue] only gets to keep 20 percent of the revenue from any branded videos that are published on Twitch, YouTube or social media and half of his revenue from touring and appearances.”

That doesn’t sound like prize money, but all the other sources of income streamers and pro players can earn.

FaZe Banks tweet also happily skips over plenty of the other allegations made about the situation. Those include: illegal gambling at FaZe Clan houses, underage drinking and signing an 11-year-old player (H1ighSky1) and pushing him to lie about his age.

Banks tweeted again, bringing up the fact that he actually got “Code: Tfue” tatted on his body.

Banks is still on Twitter, saying “fuck being professional” because Tfue won’t return his phone calls.

This is a developing story and will be updated throughout the day as more information about the story becomes available.

Everything in this story is unconfirmed independently and identified by various sources who are named in the article.
