Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is putting the Hype House on blast after the group removed their social media posts and TikToks collaborating with him, which seems to have come as a result of backlash from fans.

Out of law enforcement’s custody and back into the music biz, 6ix9ine is a free man — and one of the industry’s most successful, having broken YouTube’s record for biggest 24-hour debut in all of hip-hop with ‘Gooba’ in May.

However, it’s no secret that the wildly popular artist is shrouded in controversy, with many bringing up the star’s multiple allegations of behavior toward minors, among other issues.

Thus, many TikTokers and YouTubers who collaborated with Tekashi during his surprising press tour in early September received backlash from their fans, most notably the Hype House and Logan Paul.

In fact, it seems that some of the Hype House’s members took down their videos featuring 6ix9ine, including notable names like Olivia Ponton — and he’s not too happy about this development.

In a video uploaded on September 11, the rapper seemed to shade the entire Hype House collaborative, tearing down promotional posters of himself with the caption: “Me and the Hype House deleting videos like no one would notice.”

As if it wasn’t hilarious enough that he paired the video with Crooklyn’s ‘Ooh Child,’ he ended up changing his caption to read, “My mom still thinks I’m a winner.”

However, it seems that Tekashi’s video may have been a way to troll himself, as his album ‘Tattletales’ boasted far less sales than originally anticipated.

Since uploading their content with 6ix9ine, many creators have received heat from their fans, with Logan Paul being one of the most notable out of the bunch. Having been called out by names like H3H3’s Ethan Klein and more, Paul and co. have been at the center of critics’ scrutiny — although it doesn’t look like they’ll be deleting their podcast episode anytime soon, as opposed to their stance on Kaitlin Bennet.

For now, 6ix9ine’s future in the influencer world remains murky, but it seems like he isn’t welcome from fans of the space’s biggest personalities.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
