YouTuber and TikTok star Bryce Hall came under fire after uploading a video that showed himself attempting to break up a fight between the Sway House boys and a bystander — and now, he’s revealed his side of the story.

The video, originally taken on September 23, sparked outrage among Hall’s fanbase after being posted on October 4, with many critics calling out the influencer for what appeared to be bad behavior.

However, Sway House member Nick Bean clarified what took place in an Instagram Live stream, stating that the altercation had been his fault and that things ultimately ended on a happy note, while also claiming the incident was “misrepresented” by media outlets.

This didn’t stop some commenters from still finding fault with the situation — especially since a few choice homophobic slurs had been thrown out during the video.

Bryce Hall later told his side of the story during an episode of his “Capital University” podcast on October 7, seeming to confirm Bean’s version of events: A drunk Bean had tossed a traffic cone onto a nearby car, causing the owner to come out of a restaurant to assess the situation.

Bryce claimed that the car’s owner punched Bean in the face twice, leading to the all-out brawl seen in the video. Just like Bean’s statement, he claimed that the group made up in the end; but that wasn’t all he revealed.

The TikToker also explained why he’d even uploaded the video in the first place, stating that he wanted to get ahead of the media outlets to prevent any misinterpreting of the situation.

“We didn’t actually know that there was a video,” Hall admitted, referring to the now-viral clip originally taken from a paparazzi outlet. “I actually tweeted out the video, because I knew it was going to come out. I didn’t want the press articles to switch up the story at all. So I tweeted it out.”

At long last, Hall has finally cleared up the events leading up to the viral video; and while some fans are understanding, it doesn’t look like internet critics are willing to let this one go, regardless of his and Bean’s explanation.

Charli & Dixie D’Amelio hit back at Mr Beast trivia cheating allegations

The D’Amelio sisters, famous for their TikTok presence, incited the ire of the gaming community after winning Mr Beast’s Creator Games on October 17 — a feat that many accused them of cheating to achieve.

Mr Beast is hailed as one of YouTube’s most popular — and most creative — content creators, having hosted a slew of outrageous challenges on his channel in exchange for an equally outrageous sum of cash.

While he previously hosted a “Creator Games” (a massive virtual gathering of YouTubers for a huge game of rock-paper-scissors), this time, Mr Beast’s YouTube celebrity challenge was a trivia quiz, which the D’Amelio family found themselves winning.

However, it seems that their victory was much to the chagrin of Mr Beast’s viewers, who accused Charli and Dixie of cheating, claiming that their parents fed them the answers or that they looked up the questions on their phones.

Charli and Dixie spoke out on the backlash during an episode of their ‘2 Chix’ podcast, where they hit back at the accusations against them.

“I didn’t think winning a contest would ever come with so much hate,” Dixie said of the matter. “I’m probably one of the most hated people in the gaming world right now.”

“There’s this one picture that keeps coming up of us with our phones out,” she continued. “That picture is when they brought us on screen while we were waiting. …you can’t cheat if you don’t know the question, which we don’t know until it’s on, and no one’s watching the video!”

(Topic begins at 8:42)

“The other thing is, if Mr Beast had a problem with it being four of us, he would have told us that it wasn’t okay, or that we should pick two,” Charli added. “So I feel like that was just a big misunderstanding. People also think we’re keeping the money, which is 100% not true.”

Mr Beast has also spoken out regarding the stacking of “unfair teams” in the games, explaining in a tweet that, “honestly, the tournament was just for fun and to bring the community together, and I’d appreciate if you were to get mad at anyone, get mad at me. It was my decision.”

It’s unfortunate that what was meant to be a “fun” and carefree event resulted in so much drama, but it looks like Mr Beast is keeping the criticism in mind for the next Creator Games he decides to throw in the future.
