100 Thieves to host “savage” $500k Super Bowl Halftime UNO tournament

Things are going to get heated at the new 100 Thieves compound thanks to a high-stakes UNO tournament being hosted by the esports organization.

If you’re looking for something other than the Super Bowl, perhaps you’ll want to give a $500k UNO tourney a look.

It’s being put on by 100 Thieves and will feature most of the content creators from the org, along with former FaZe Clan pro Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, who was heavily involved in rumors of him joining the team leading up to this point.

This event is being called “the most savage & cut-throat” UNO tournament you’ve ever seen, so it sounds like it’ll be worth checking out based on that alone.

Participants include Nadeshot, Valkyrae, Cloak, Maven, Yassuo, CouRageJD, Castro, and all four members of The Mob.

The early favorite has to be Froste from The Mob since he has roots in the UNO scene. During a Twitch Rivals tournament in January, he was able to secure the victory, making him the only player who has earned money from the hit card game in a competitive format.

The winner of this event will even get their hands on a championship belt, so it’s not like the players are just going to roll over and let him win that easily.

UNO is a very unpredictable game, with the ability to swing in the other direction in the blink of an eye, so every player will have a decent chance going in.

As an added incentive for fans, there will be $100k up for grab for the viewers thanks to Cash App. All they’ll need to enter to win the free money is their cashtag from the app.

For anyone wanting to tune in for the chance to win some money, they will be able to do so on both 100 Thieves’ Twitch and YouTube channels.

While both CouRage and Valkyrae now exclusively stream on YouTube, Nadeshot and The Mob still stream on the Amazon-owned platform, so it’s not surprising to see it split like this.

Make sure you tune into the action beginning at 4 PM PST / 7 PM EST and see who comes out on top.


TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
