FaZe Clan Owner, Ricky “Banks” Banks has spoken out publicly on the Romeo Lacoste allegations, after evidence surfaced that the YouTube tattoo artist had sent inappropriate messages to underage girls.
The famous YouTuber and tattoo artist Romeo Lacoste is receiving widespread backlash after allegations of him messaging underage female fans surfaced on March 15.
The Twitter user ‘Yellowchairr’ claims to have been the one in contact with Romeo during these events and released photos and videos of the alleged conversations, which Banks refers to in his statement.
FaZe Banks, who has been seen with Romeo Lacoste in videos on his YouTube channel and even got some of his tattoos done from him, has come out with a short statement on Twitter regarding the accusations.
Banks said that he is going to wait for Romeo to share his side of the story, despite stating that situation does not look great for him with all of the recent screenshots and videos that have been posted to Twitter.
Banks also said that he would have the same non-tolerance approach for anyone who ‘fucked with little kids’ and will make his decision on the Romeo Lacoste allegations without any bias.
“Still waiting on some sort of statement from Romeo, cause I feel like everyone deserves to share their side, but the evidence looks pretty damning. Bottom line, if you fuck with little kids I don’t fuck with you. That goes for everybody, obviously.”

Lacoste has tattooed a number of notable celebrities, including the likes of rapper Kendrick Lamar, pop star Ariana Grande, popular YouTuber Tyler Oakley, Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue, and even Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, among others.
He is still yet to make an official statement on the allegations and has deleted his account on Twitter for the time being.
