This feud doesn’t seem to be simmering down anytime soon.
Mistakes happen, but most don’t end up in a hacked Zoom stream and the leaking of someone’s personal phone number. Well, that’s what happened today during Jimmy Donaldson‘s rock, paper, scissors charity tournament, thanks to streamer Turner “Tfue” Tenney.
I got clapped and leaked the url FML

Tfue was trying to access the competitors’ chat when he accidentally leaked the code that would allow others to access the Zoom call through which the live stream was occurring. Obviously, not everyone left it alone, and not long after the leak, the call was hacked, resulting in the stream being taken down for a short period of time.
Tyler “Ninja” Blevins called out Tfue on Twitter following the leak, which caused Tfue to send out his own tweet, which read, “Ninja is a p***y.” This resulted in Ninja clapping back, saying it was Tfue’s fault for not following the rules, which asked those involved in the tournament to link to the official stream, instead of showing it on their own channels, seemingly reigniting the pair’s well-publicized feud.
also would have prevented the leaks :(

Soon, the shade and tea were flying, with Ninja’s wife, Jessica Blevins, sharing that Tfue’s fans were trying to blame the leak and subsequent hack on Ninja. While this statement saw a general support from most, some of Tfue’s fans were quick to callout Jessica, telling her that Twitter was not the platform on which she should be handling the situation.
Yeah, @TTfue leaking was a mistake, but it wouldnt have happened if he listened like everyone else that was told NOT to stream this event and direct all of their viewers to the main Youtube stream to RAISE MONEY for charity. Now it's hacked and being restarted.

Along with once again reigniting the Twitch vs. Mixer debate, which only continues to grow as many of Twitch’s original’s streamers jump over to the platform, the slip-up also got other creators involved, with shade being thrown by the likes of Lannan Eacott, better known as LazarBeam, who shared numerous indirects toward Tfue. Fans of both streamers also got involved, which resulted in both “Tfue” and “Ninja” trending on Twitter for a good portion of the day.
i got clapped but atleast i didnt leak a code

Tfue did eventually apologize for leaking the code and forcing the tournament to be placed on hold. He also donated $10,000 to the stream, which was taking donations throughout its duration.
In the end, Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag came out on top, taking the win from Casey Neistat and choosing to donate the full $250,000 to the CDC Foundation‘s COVID-19 fundraiser. We’re hoping the drama that unfolded today doesn’t overshadow all the good the stream accomplished – and, we have to admit, seeing a ton of our faves play an old-fashioned game of rock, paper, scissors was oddly entertaining!
