FaZe Banks accuses Tati of exploiting James Charles drama to make money

The feud between popular beauty YouTubers James Charles and Tati Westbrook has taken another dramatic turn, after Charles exposed Tati’s “lies” in a forty-minute long video – and FaZe co-owner Ricky Banks isn’t convinced the drama came out of nowhere.

Banks published a series of Tweets following the release of Charles’ “No More Lies” video on May 18, where he appeared to accuse Tati of using her beef with Charles as a way to promote her vitamin brand, ‘Halo Beauty.’


“Just watched James Charles’ video and holy fuck, did his friends do him dirty,” Banks began. “The entire internet did him soooo dirty. I mean I mean the proof is in the ‘receipts’ right?”

Banks went on to point out Tati’s damning text sent to Charles about a waiter he allegedly sexually harassed during her birthday party, where she wrote, “You’re supposed to hook up with the waiter, not marry him.”


That wasn’t the end of his rant, by far; Banks went on to demand that Tati reveal Halo’s profits following the release of her initial video, which she claimed was brought about by Charles promoting her direct competitor, SugarBearHair.

“Hey Tati, would it be too much to ask to share Halo Beauty’s sales report over the last month?” Banks asked. “I think we’d all appreciate/like to know the impact this scandal had on your products success. If none of it was about vitamins then it really shouldn’t matter, right?”

Banks likewise claimed that the fans of both YouTubers were the true victims of the scandal, wondering how many viewers felt sorry for Tati and bought her vitamins in response to their feud.


Banks isn’t alone in his thinking, either; YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg expressed similar sentiments during a ‘Pew News’ segment on the topic, where he called her viral “Bye Sister” video an advertisement for Halo Beauty.

“What has that to do with Tati’s brands?” Felix laughingly said of the video. “This is an ad.”

In fact, Charles even thanked PewDiePie for giving him advice in a video dissecting his initial apology a day prior, where Kjellberg expressed major doubts that Charles would come back from the scandal.

Charles’ “No More Lies” video has since resulted in a major subscriber shift for all parties involved, with Tati losing subs at a fast rate while Charles looks to regain his 15 million sub count.

FaZe Clan hosted its very own invitational Among Us tournament — smartly dubbed the “Among Us In-vent-ational” — in October, with top content creators, streamers and more getting in on the action.

Among Us has become the game of choice for many top creators, with a party-game atmosphere and a great way to find out who your real friends are and test your own poker face.


The announcement for the tournament was made on October 14, with the esports organization confirming it would take place on Monday, October 19.

Now in the rearview mirror with the best Among Us players having been crowned, we’ve compiled everything you need to know. From the final placements, who competed, and how you can rewatch all the action.


In-Vent-Ational recap

Four separate lobbies filled to the brim with popular personalities battled it out during the event. Eventually, the best of the best moved on to the final showdown. This was where the most elite Among Us players showed their skills to the world. From extraordinary memory to map knowledge and of course, the ability to deceive everyone else, it all came in handy.

The likes of Ludwig, Classify, and Yassuo all made it through to the final round of action in the FaZe event. However, only one player could come away with the crown.

After a few maps of intense murder-sprees and subsequent investigations, it was up and coming Twitch streamer ‘Yetiapocalypse’ that closed out the victory. They soared to the top of the pack with a six-point lead over second place, well ahead of some of the bigger internet celebs in the lobby. The final placements can be found below.

The tournament took place entirely on Monday, October 19, with the action having kicked off at 2pm PT (11am ET / 7pm BST). It lasted for roughly the full afternoon as each lobby battled it out for a few hours.

As each round went by, point totals were calculated before moving into the next map. This paved the way for unique strategies as players looked to knock out others at the top.
