It appears that the long and drawn out beef between popular YouTubers FaZe Banks and Jake Paul is not going to be ending anytime soon.

The most recent episode of controversy between the two content creators involved Banks blasting Paul on Twitter after a video has surfaced of him publicly making fun of Banks’ girlfriend Alissa Violet.

In the video, Paul appears to be in the middle of a performance as he is walking around on stage while he and the crowd chant something that sounds close to “getting punched in the face.”

Apparently, this was in reference to the November 2017 incident which involved Violet getting punched in the face by an employee of a bar called Barley House in Cleveland, OH.

In response to the controversial video, Banks took to social media to direct some harsh words about Paul and his actions on stage.

Jake’s actually human garbage.. get’s in front of millions of people lies about me hitting some whack bitch, acts like he cares soooo much about the issue and then gets on stage at his cringe show and mocks Alissa getting hit by a dude. 10/10 scum.

As alluded to before, this is not the first bit of controversy that has involved Banks, Paul, and Violet, who was reportedly dating Paul before their relationship ended early in 2017.

In a previous incident, Paul accused Banks of having assaulted his assistant after she had seen him making out at a club with another female, even though he was already in a relationship with Violet at the point.

It will be worth keeping an eye on the situation to see whether their beef continues to escalate or if it dies down, although the former seems much more likely than the latter.

Twitch slammed for failing to moderate their own channel’s chat

Twitch has received backlash after the chat in its own official channel was full of hateful comments during the Participation Awards ceremony.

As part of Twitch’s celebration of its community, on January 23 it held a Participation Awards to commemorate the work of their streamers and the community.

The stream focused on using Twitch chat as a direct medium between the hosts and viewers. But, as the event was running, some, including partnered streamers, criticized Twitch for ineffectively moderating the messages in chat.

Twitch was criticized as hateful comments went unmoderated.

Twitch partner and variety streamer negaoryx called out the platform for allowing the chat to be ‘full’ of hate speech and harassment towards the guests and hosts of the awards.

“I am unfathomably angry at the lack of protection and care Twitch shows its marginalized creators,” she said.

“Users in chat are spewing hate speech & harassing the guest streamers. 3 mod names in the chat list but since I’ve been watching, have seen ZERO messages get deleted.

“I can’t even watch & enjoy this stream because I’m spending my time reporting every hateful, harassing comment I see. How hard is it to have even ONE person moderate these official Twitch streams?”

MsAshRocks, who appeared as the final guest on the stream, also urged Twitch to clamp down on hate speech. She said: “I mentioned a slither of fundraising for [BLM] protesters and they went wild LMAO.”

Tanya “CypherofTyr” DePass, director of gaming diversity non-profit I Need Diverse Games, echoed the calls, as she said: “It’s why I never watch the actual main Twitch/Twitch Gaming channels but host on mine so we have a safe spot to watch.”

Another Twitch partner, Imperial, praised negaoryx for speaking out and labeled the situation a “systemic problem” within Twitch.

She said: “I’ve had to call local police after doxing threats, so many racist comments and usernames that I saw no action on. Months of steady harassment. Do better.”

Twitch has not yet responded publicly to the situation.

This wasn’t the only debacle from the stream. It turns out that one of the awards was inadvertently handed out to a bot account, rather than a real person.

It’s been a turbulent few days for the platform, as users condemned their decision to ban a 15-year-old streamer with 90,000 followers because he had made his account when he was under 13. Meanwhile, other top streamers on the platform who also made their account when under 13 have gone unpunished.
