Fortnite pro Cody "Clix" Conrod had some very kind words for Fortnite Creative Director Donald Mustard in a tweet recently. However, the appreciation comes a few weeks after Clix went on to insult Mustard in a tweet.

The tweet where he insulted Mustard was deleted, but the internet managed to grab screenshots. This sudden change in behavior left the internet with a lot of questions.

Fortnite pro Clix had rather strong words for Mustard when the Fortnite Creative Director posted an image of him at the Superbowl. While professional players are known to express their displeasure with the developers, this reaction isn't really appreciated because they're role models to many aspiring pros out there. Also, being toxic is something these pros wouldn't want to showcase to the community as a whole.

It wasn't just the pros. Fans took to those responding to the tweet to express their displeasure with the game.

Certain illogical tweets like how Mustard had the money to attend the Superbowl but not increase the prizepool in Fortnite were also noted in the list of responses.

However, in a recent tweet, Clix had a reaction quite opposite to his previous reaction towards Mustard. Touted as the King of Box Fights, Clix went on to appreciate Mustard and the Fortnite team as a whole for their contributions towards the game itself.

Fans went on to speculate that Clix badly wanted the Clix Cup in Fortnite, and he was just being nice to the individual to get his work done. A few other fans thought Clix was being held hostage, while some thought that Clix was being paid to tweet nice words on Twitter.

Although Clix's remarks reek of the subtle shade that he's been throwing at Mustard via these tweets, young fans may not understand the humor behind them. Toxicity is something that is very prevalent in the Fortnite community, just like any other online gaming community. However, pros like Clix, who have a young fan base can put an end to this toxicity by behaving as responsible role models for future generations.
