In the midst of the controversy surrounding Zoe LaVerne’s relationship with a thirteen-year-old boy, loyal fans have been accusing Amber Van Pelt of betraying her former best friend, spamming her social media with comments claiming that Zoe LaVerne was the reason she was still alive following her mental health struggles.

Not long ago, Van Pelt and LaVerne seemed to be the best of friends. They frequented each other’s social media channels nearly every day, with LaVerne comforting her during her messy split with Jack Hess over the summer.

But with LaVerne facing intense scrutiny over her relationship with a 13-year-old minor – which Van Pelt had previously criticised as “intense” and akin to “p**dophillia” in a private exchange with Cody Orlove – Van Pelt has attempted to move on from their friendship and carry on posting as normal.

The two were previously close friends before falling out in the early autumn.

However, the Zoe LaVerne fandom – who refer to themselves ‘zonuts’ – have continued to target Van Pelt in the wake of LaVerne’s latest controversy.

In a recent Instagram live, Van Pelt called out ‘zonuts’ for one specific comment they kept making to her: namely, that LaVerne “saved her life” amid Van Pelt’s messy breakup over the summer.

“Nobody [saved my life] but me. It was me!” Van Pelt insisted in response to the claims. “I’m the only reason I’m still here, and I want to make that very clear.”

What happened between Amber and Zoe?

Zoe LaVerne and Amber Van Pelt’s friendship came to an abrupt end in the early autumn of 2o2o. The last time Van Pelt posted about LaVerne was in early September of this year.

Fans had little insight into the reason the two’s friendship broke down until messages between Van Pelt and Orlove were leaked after the latter’s Instagram account was hacked.

In the exchange, Van Pelt claims that she ended her friendship with LaVerne because of her “intense” relationship with the minor, her frequent claims that Orlove “beat the sh*t out of her” and for being generally “toxic to [Van Pelt’s] mental health] – with Van Pelt even claiming that LaVerne catfished her by pretending to be her ex-boyfriend.

Van Pelt gave some insight into the end of her friendship with LaVerne in a leaked conversation with Cody Orlove.

She also revealed in an Instagram live that LaVerne fabricated a rumor that she stole 11,000$ from the disgraced TikTok star.

Meanwhile, LaVerne has recently announced that she has checked herself into a hospital, telling followers on her fan account that she’s “trying to find help before it’s too late.”


NickEh30 gets Twitch streamer banned for allegedly stream sniping

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
