Popular YouTuber, model, and music artist Erika Costell released her new single, ‘Dynamite,’ on December 26 – and the song appears to detail her turbulent relationship with ex-boyfriend Jake Paul.

The music video for Costell’s single features a slew of footage taken from vlogs during her time together with Paul, paired with lyrics that have fans wondering if she wants to get back together with the controversial social media star.

“Got matching tattoos / only would do it with you,” the song reads, referencing Costell’s matching ‘GOAT’ tattoo with Paul. “There’s always higher places / there’s always bigger things / but it don’t feel as good as having you next to me.”

Costell likewise Tweeted out the song’s lyrics on December 26, prompting an outpouring of emotional responses from fans – as well as speculation that ‘Jerkia’ might be making a comeback.

Despite this sudden, reminiscent love song from Costell, she recently confirmed that she is not currently in the dating scene, answering with a decisive “Oh, hell no” when asked if she had a boyfriend in a Q & A video on December 19.

Costell’s single marks a surprising response to her breakup with Jake, following a string of vague Tweets in light of Paul’s rather transparent posts. 

Paul divulged major details about his split with Erika in his ‘Jake Paul Uncut’ docuseries, claiming that they both “knew how to hurt each other” – and even admitted that he’d had plans to give her a promise ring.

Hafu’s Among Us lobby takes action against toxic Twitch chat

In light of recent drama involving xChocoBars and Twitch chat toxicity in Hafu’s Among Us lobbies, the streamers are working together to implement a process aimed at curtailing unsavory viewers.

In one of Rumay ‘Hafu’ Wang’s popular Among Us sessions with a variety of streamers, Luminosity Gaming’s xChocoBars was driven to tears and an early conclusion of her stream by overwhelming toxicity in Twitch chat.

While Hafu and others, like Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang, tried to console xChocoBars and let her know that chat was being unfair — the damage had already been done. Viewers were aggressively berating ChocoBars for failing to identify the impostor and that pushed her to find a substitute for her in the game and end her stream early, forgoing involvement in Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter’s session later in the day.

In the hours since the unfortunate incident, Hafu has worked on creating a process to deal with toxic chatters that will involve moderators from each streamer’s chat joining a collective Discord channel.

As Hafu explains, her Among Us morning lobbies will be accompanied by a communal “mod Discord.” This will allow the streamers, in unison, to levy out punishments to someone who has been overly toxic in any individual chat.

While Hafu denotes the level of toxicity as anyone being a “poopoo head,” it’s clear that this process is designed to ensure that anyone wanting to be toxic will be relegated to uninvolvement in any stream that is part of the lobby.

Overall, the idea is a quality one as it should deter people from being too nasty in chat. If someone is so invested in a streamer’s game of Among Us that they become toxic, they’ll probably dislike being completely banned from the entire lobby’s streams.

As xChocoBars tweeted, she did need to take a break from the internet for a while after dealing with toxicity in the morning stream — but she will be returning for Hafu’s next morning Among Us lobby.

It’s unclear if this anti-toxicity process was in the works before ChocoBars decided to join for the following morning’s stream. Regardless, it should be comforting to know that the lobby is taking action against what has become a growing issue in Among Us streams.
