FaZe Clan’s Turner “Tfue” Tenney came under attack from a hacker on Tuesday, who gained access to his Twitch, YouTube and Twitter accounts.
The hacker left a stream of malicious tweets on the popular Fortnite streamer’s Twitter feed. Tweets full of hate speech were directed as his fellow streamers KEEMSTAR and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, as well as President of the United States Donald Trump.
One tweet read:
“F*** Trump I Voted For Healury (sic) Clinton”
“You F****** B**** @KEEMSTAR”
The tweets started appearing early on in the day and continued throughout.
Tfue’s Twitter profile picture and header image were also changed to seemingly random images.
It appears that the hacker gained access to Tfue’s social media accounts via his Gmail account. The streamer’s Twitch and YouTube accounts were also compromised during the attack.
Following his Twitter attacks, the hacker went live on Tfue’s Twitch profile, playing Fortnite via a PlayStation 4 console and broadcasting the stream through Twitter. The short-lived stream didn’t last long, but thousands of viewers tuned in to watch the carnage ensue.
The hacker also posted a lewd video to Tfue’s YouTube channel which has since been viewed more than 60,000 times. Despite the nature of the video, it has yet to be removed from the channel.
However, the Tweets have since been removed from Tfue’s twitter feed. It is unclear whether the Fortnite professional has regained access to all of his accounts.
Tfue hacked: The perfect opportunity
The hacker appears to have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to cause as much damage as possible. Tfue has tweeted earlier in the day that his internet was down, which would have restricted his ability to act sooner.
Tfue is one of the most popular Fortnite streamers. He boasts 360,000 Twittter followers, 3.1m YouTube subscribers and 2m followers on Twitch.
