Former Hype House and Clubhouse member Daisy Keech is under fire for allegedly copying another fitness brand’s design for workout bands, with some fans accusing her of deleting comments drawing attention to the matter.

After leaving the Hype House in March due to issues with business partner Thomas Petrou, Daisy Keech went solo with her entrepreneurial skills, starting her own TikTok house – the Clubhouse.

But after reconsidering what her “passion in life is” she decided to exit her own crew with the aim to pursue interior design and home renovation.

That business plan also seemed to take a new turn when Daisy launched her own fitness brand Keech Peach, which includes the sale of fitness equipment and workout plans.

She initially was criticized by some reviewers for charging $47 for a workout plan that could have been found online “by simply googling butt workouts,” but other users seemed to be keen to try it out.

However, she’s now under fire for a different reason. One of Daisy’s products are fitness bands, used to aid customers in their execution of her exercise plans. Fans have called out the design as looking strikingly similar to another fitness brand, Peach Bands.

Both sets of bands feature a similar pink color scheme, a similar font, and an identifiable peach silhouette logo.

People were quick to tag Peach Bands beneath the photo, and some of them noted that it appeared as though Daisy was deleting some of those comments.

People are divided on whether or not this was an intentional rip off on Keech Peach’s part. Some share pictures of very similar bands they had purchased off sites like Amazon, with the same pink colors and minimalistic font.

However, others note the undeniable resemblance of the peach logo, and suggest it’s this that makes the two products “literally the same thing.”

At the time of writing, Keech Peach’s version of the fitness bands are still up on their site, selling for $29.

Tommyinnit reveals he used to stream snipe Shroud before he was famous

Tommyinnit might be the most popular streamer on Twitch right now, averaging over 200,000 concurrent viewers for his sporadic Minecraft streams, but it turns out he used to be a massive shroud fanboy. In fact, he was one of shroud’s infamous stream snipers.

Stream sniping is the practice of using a streamer’s broadcast to gain information about the game they are playing – either to get an unfair advantage, or simply to join their game and troll them.

During the height of PUBG’s popularity in 2017, shroud was the biggest streamer on Twitch, and had an army of loyal stream snipers who would try endlessly to get into his matches.

Shroud’s stream snipers weren’t like others though – instead of trying to kill him, they would sing him songs, give him weapons and armor, or try to save his life when under attack.

Tommyinnit admits shroud stream sniping

Although it’s against the rules of most games and of Twitch itself, Tommyinnit has admitted that when he was 14, back in 2017, he loved both PUBG and shroud, and would spend hours up late trying to get into his games.

And he was successful too – often matching up with him, and trying to save his life from actual enemies attacking him. Shroud eventually became familiar with Tommy’s name, and would say hello to him. In a video on his second channel, Tommyoutit, came clean about all of his stream sniping antics.

In one session, shroud even talked to Tommy about playing Minecraft, the game that he’s so well-known for now.

But, it turns out that Tommyinnit made this video because it wasn’t just years ago in PUBG that he was stream sniping shroud. When he recently saw shroud on a Minecraft server with proximity chat, he had to try it again for old times sake.

Unfortunately, shroud didn’t seem to be enjoying himself at all this time around, and soon after left the server – though not before killing Tommyinnit’s character, twice.

Although stream sniping is technically against the rules on Twitch, we’re sure the platform will let this one slide, as it was all in good fun. The real question is whether shroud has made the connection that one of his old stream snipers is now one of the biggest names on Twitch alongside him.
