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.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
