Daisy Keech under fire for “copying” fitness brand with her new product

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.


PewDiePie shares his insane police chase story

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg revealed that he once had a run in with the police when he was younger. The Swede opened up on stream about a handful of “embarrassing” stories from his youth.

For many, PewDiePie has been the face of online entertainment for the last decade. With over 107 million subscribers to his channel, the content creator is undoubtedly the reigning king of YouTube.

During his October 29 livestream, the star opened up about experiences he had when he was lesser known. From speeding tickets to his car being impounded, the 31-year-old had some incredible stories to tell.

PewDiePie reveals story about run-in with police

The YouTuber was preparing to stream Among Us with Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson and Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys when he revealed “embarrassing” stories from his youth to viewers. The star detailed a time he was pulled over for speeding on the highway.

“I was 18 and I just got my driver’s license. Of course, the cliche. I thought ‘yeah, there is no cars.’ Thought I was the coolest,” he said, before pausing to tell fans, “DON’T DO THIS, it’s not cool! But then I sped, and the police actually chased after me. They put the sirens behind, I’ve never seen that before.”

Despite the scare of them chasing him, luckily he was let off with a warning. “I gave them the sappiest eyes ever. I feel like the pitied me so hard, they just lowered what they had on the ticket. They were like “you’re fine, just go. Don’t drive fast,” he said.

The entertainer added, “I’ve never been stopped in the UK, I was stopped so many times in Sweden.” As if that wasn’t crazy enough, Kjellberg also told his audience the story about how his car once got impounded when he was out of the country, and was almost auctioned off.

“F**king auctions, man. That happened to my car once. I didn’t pay tax on it, and I was away. So it had been taken off and it was just about to go in auction,” the YouTuber revealed. “It’s f**king crazy. How can they do that? I was out of the country!”

PewDiePie had to drive over 40 minutes to reach the place where they had taken his vehicle. Summing up the whole experience, he cautioned fans: “It’s tough, guys, it’s tough not paying your taxes.”

The stories PewDiePie told were from years back, however he called them “embarrassing” experiences. To be fair, everyone has a story of getting into trouble in some form or another in their youth.

Despite being known for his video content, in 2020 the personality has been streaming more often after signing a major deal with YouTube back in March. Fans are often treated to anecdotes from the star’s interesting life.
