The clip, recorded from IShowSpeed's point of view, leads to him launching an x-rated rant against Harvey Barnes.

He said: "Who the f*** is Harvey Barnes, bro?"

"We just got stream-sniped by somebody named f***king Harvey Barnes. Harvey Barnes, f*** you, bro.

The success of the Newcastle players meant that the YouTube squad finished the game in 21st place, leading to the squad to accuse Barnes of "hacking" on Fortnite.

Newcastle fans were quick to react to the clip on social media, with one sharing a GIF of Anthony Gordon and commenting: "Owned by the best English winger in the league."

Another said: "The GOAT Paul Dummett strikes again".

Barnes went off early into the Magpies' 8-0 win against Sheffield United in September due to a toe injury - it was only his second start since making a £38million switch from Leicester City in the summer.
