FaZe Clan Co-Owner and Corinna Kopf involved in a Twitter spat

The dispute started after the streamer, who joined Facebook Gaming in an exclusive deal last year, made a tweet about one of her ex-boyfriends and her dog. On June 8, Corinna Kopf tweeted, “My ex still follows my dog but has unfollowed me on everything… feels bad.”

FaZe Adapt responded to the tweet, saying, “When u date every dude in LA, that’ll probably happen.”

The Facebook streamer called out Adapt for’s**t shaming’ and followed it up with a befitting reply, saying she has dated three guys in the six years she’s lived in LA.

Meanwhile, FaZe Adapt’s comments drew backlash from other content creators as well as fans. Twitch streamer Fleeksie and YouTube personality Tana Mongeau gave their takes on the Twitter spat.

Adapt claimed he was trying to “make Twitter fun again”.

After that, Adapt posted another tweet, explaining that he respects women and cherishes his four sisters. “I grew up in a household with 4 women; their names are Sydney, Vienna, Milan & Paris. I love my sisters,” he said. But, he took yet another dig at Kopf, “But I don’t condone snake a** h**s… that’s all.”

The Facebook streamer responded to the jab by posting a screenshot of their personal conversation. “Why didn’t you call me a snake a** h** when I DM’d you?” she asked. FaZe Adapt apologized to her during the conversation and claimed he was trolling her because of boredom.

However, FaZe Clan member retweeted Kopf once again and retracted his apology later.
