One of the most popular figures in the Fortnite community lately is a 13-year-old deaf streamer named “Ewok.”
Despite her young age and the fact that she’s deaf, Ewok is an incredibly-talented Fortnite player. She’s caught the attention of other popular streamers, like Tim “TimTheTatman” Betar and Trevor “Mizkif”—and Mizkif helped Ewok gain hundreds of new subscribers on Twitch earlier this week.
But according to esports insider Rod “Slasher” Breslau, someone reportedly made a fake Twitter account for Ewok to try to benefit from her recent growth.
“The TwitchEwok Twitter account is FAKE,” Slasher tweeted. “It was never hacked—it was never real to begin with. Some loser pretended to be her. Ewok and her family didn’t know, and a mod of hers added the fake account to her Twitch bot.”
Originally, several people in the community thought that Ewok’s Twitter account was hacked—but it just turns out that @TwitchEwok was never her account in the first place.
