What is happening in our world? Who is doing what? what is going on now? These are questions that will be answered. Enjoy.
Fortnite is a Favorite Among Celebrities Including Drake and Roseanne Bar
Fortnite Battle Royale is everywhere. The video game—in which players compete against as many as 99 other competitors by evading and killing each other to be the last man or woman standing—vaulted to new heights in the past couple months after a popular gamer named Ninja livestreamed himself playing Fortnite with Drake. It’s a game that’s been embraced by millions, including famous people. (On Friday, in fact, a celebrity Fortnite tournament kicked off.) Here are 10 celebrities who boast some next-level squads and even more impressive win-records.
The British YouTuber isn’t known for his Fortnite gameplay, but he loves to hop on Twitter and offer commentary. Like the most discerning competitors, he knows when to leave the big moves to the big players.
Proof that Fortnite has gotten way the hell out of hand, Norm MacDonald is involved. The comedian recently posted on Reddit that no one could beat him at Fortnite—presumably untrue—but instead of earning a match he just got trolled as the thread taunted him with questions of who he is. Ouch.
If you can ball on the court, then you can ball in the ever-shrinking map where you have to kill others to survive. Josh Hart, the L.A. Lakers guard, once played Fortnite for ten hours before facing off against the Cavs. That’s a long-game to get hype, but do you, friend
While Nick is landing magazine covers and Kevin is doing, well, something, Joe is recording music with DNCE, getting engaged to Sansa from Game of Thrones—oh, and hanging out on Xbox as CrackedPig8153. Join his squad.
Part of the Drake-Ninja playoff (that also featured Travis Scott) on Twitch, JuJu Smith-Schuster is rarely one to miss out on some Fortnite action. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver tweeted, “In the same week I met and recruited LeBron to the Steelers and played Fortnite with Drake, Ninja, and Travis Scott. What a time to be alive.”
The Atlanta-based hip-hop artist is a big fan of Fortnite and even hops onto Twitch to stream with his fans occasionally.
The final name to join the Drake-Ninja-JuJu Fortnite party is Travis Scott, who has helped garner attention for the battle royale game by inviting his fans to join during his streams.
Remember that kid that got snagged in IT? Well, he probably just slid down into the gutter, grabbed a controller, and got back to business. The fifteen-year-old Canadian actor from Stranger Things can often be found streaming with his brother.
This seems insane—and only potentially true. Roseanne recently tweeted, “I have 20 fortnite victory royale wins.” Our response? Show us the receipts. But even if the claim itself is a stretch—and we’re not saying it is (but c’mon, Roseanne?)—she’s regularly posting links to join her squad. Dare we say, Roseanne’s got game?
At the top of the heap, of course, is Drake. In terms of celebrities playing the game, Drizzy is a bit of a Fortnite icon. His battle with Ninja was a monumental moment for online streaming, and the duo continues to have a friendly rivalry. Their last match on April 10 drew in nearly a quarter of a million viewers.
