FaZe Clan’s Ricky Banks expresses serious concern for the mental health of Yousef ‘Fousey’ Erakat during Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s documentary about the disastrous “Hate Die, Love Arrives” event.

Banks talks to Fousey on the phone during the first episode of KEEMSTAR’s documentary, ““The Hard Truth About FouseyTube”.

FaZe Clan’s COO speaks from experience and tells his fellow content creator that he is sounding manic:

“A lot of the shit you’re saying right now is shaking me fuck up because it’s like crazy how similar it was to like… I don’t know if you remember when I had a meltdown on social media, straight up, I was like manic, like straight manic and I had all these aspirations to be a philanthropist,

“In the weirdest way it felt so good to feel crazy”

After hanging up from the phone call, Banks doubles down on his concerns about Fousey, telling the people around the table, including KEEMSTAR, that they need to “slow it down”.

Some of the people in the room are convinced that Fousey’s July 15 event is nothing more than promotion for a music video that he is planning to release, but Banks wants them to understand that they are “not talking about someone that is all there right now”.

“He’s fucking going through a manic episode, one trillion percent. One BAJILLION percent,

“All I’m saying here is that if you don’t think Fousey is going through a manic episode right now, you are lost and have no understanding of what it means to be manic,”

The “Hate Dies, Love Arrives” show at the Greek Theatre was eventually closed down prematurely due to a bomb threat, but Fousey has come under fire for more than that.

A number of YouTubers, including KEEMSTAR, PewDiePie and Philip DeFranco have taken shots at their fellow content creator for his promotion of the event, which included heavy insinuations about superstars like Drake and J. Cole performing.

None of these music icons did appear at the show, and The Blast reports that sources close to drake say he “definitely doesn’t know that guy and this is the first he has ever heard of him.”


TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
