Former FaZe clan CS:GO players have signaled their solidarity with the organization amid today’s lawsuit filed against the org by Turner “Tfue” Tenney. In a pair of tweets, Finn “karrigan” Andersen and Richard "Xizt" Landström described their positive experiences with the team.
The tweets have emerged amid a second official statement released by the organization. In a follow-up to their previous tweets, FaZe clarified its earlier claims that it had never collected money from Tfue’s tournament winnings or Twitch, Youtube, and social media revenue.
The second response outlines a clause in Tfue’s contract that gives FaZe an 80 percent cut of any brand deals made with the “gamer.” FaZe claims it has never exercised this clause and alleges that it has been in unsuccessful contract negotiations with Tfue since September 2018.

The new response seemingly counters much of Tfue’s initial lawsuit filing and brings into question the veracity of his allegations.
This and the expanding public support on Twitter for the FaZe organization have the potential to affect both party’s reputation as more details of the lawsuit emerge. Tfue has not released an official statement since the initial filing.
In an additional twist to the story, Daniel “Keemstar” Keem, creator of DramaAlert called out FaZe to donate $60,000 following his own report on the allegations. Ricky “FaZe Banks” Banks, answered with a definitive yes.
