FaZe Clan’s Ricky “Banks” Banks gave his followers a scare, after going missing from social media after checking into a hotel in Japan and posting a sequence of Tweets about strange ongoings.

The popular YouTuber first posted on Twitter on August 10 to let fans know about the situation – “in case I go missing or something happens to me. You all need to know the truth.”

Some fans are unconvinced that he is legitimately in danger, but his tweets abruptly stopped and fellow YouTuber KEEMSTAR claims he is unable to get in touch with Banks.

It all started with this sequence of tweets from Banks, sent during the night local time in Japan.


He goes on to say that his SnapChat app started acting strangely, apparently taken control by a mysterious intruder.


He continues, saying that this is 100% real, despite the story becoming increasingly unrealistic as he went on.


He then seemed to become a bit more light hearted about the situation, posting a picture of the girl from horror film ‘The Ring’.


His next tweet was his last, before he returned to Twitter the next day, saying “everything was real.”


When fans challenged him on Twitter for ‘crying wolf’, Banks reaffirmed that his ordeal was completely unfabricated.


KEEMSTAR, who does the ‘Mom’s Basement’ show with Banks, claims to corroborate his story, saying he had been unable to get in touch with him throughout the ordeal.


For now, Banks is safe and sound, but is still out in Japan. He is back on Twitter and Snapchat as normal.

Knowing Banks’ dedication to YouTube, he will likely make a vlog documenting his experience in the Japanese Hotel, giving fans some closure on the situation.


Hair by Chrissy under fire after Dixie D’Amelio’s hair falls out

TikToker and hair stylist ‘Hair by Chrissy’ is coming under fire, yet again, after Dixie D’Amelio claimed her hair was falling out due to her new extensions — and while she never said who they were from, it seems the internet has already chosen its preferred target.

Dixie D’Amelio showed off her brand-new hair color in a Tweet on October 20, going from her usual deep black to a gray/white look that caused fans to flip out and inspired us all to get a little daring with our everyday style.

However, there’s more than her new hair color that’s stirring up the TikTok world; in an October 15 podcast episode with sister Charli, Dixie admitted that her hair is falling out after getting pricey new extensions from a shop that she carefully declined to name.

“I don’t know if my hair is falling out, but I think it’s falling out from them,” she admitted. “So I’m like, kinda scared. I’m losing hair, but it’s connected to the extension… there’s like white pieces all at the end of each piece of hair.”

“Now I’m like, really concerned,” she continued. “Like, does it look bad? I’m scared.”

Although Dixie never shared where she received her new extensions — which she claimed had a hefty price tag — internet detectives are pointing the finger at Hair by Chrissy, a fellow TikToker and hair stylist who has come under fire recently for alleged discrimination and other faulty business practices.

In fact, her salon posted Dixie’s before and after photos from her appointment with them to Instagram (although it’s worth noting that all comments are currently disabled).

Chrissy’s salon has also received quite a few negative reviews from customers over extensions, with one reviewer claiming that “this salon is not just so overpriced for crappy hair extensions and color, but also leave you with dry, damaged hair in the end.”

A reviewer describes their negative experience at Hair by Chrissy's salon.Hair by Chrissy has received a number of negative reviews, with many accusing the salon of discriminatory practices.

Another wrote, “Extensions don’t look blended at all, and she doesn’t give a crap about you unless you have TikTok followers.”

Considering all the hullabaloo surrounding Chrissy, many fans of Charli and Dixie are hitting out at the stylist on social media, predicting an end to her business in the near future.

“Are we surprised?” one commenter said of the situation. “No. That’s the service you get when you go to a place that’s racist and doesn’t know how to do hair well.”

Commenters decry Hair by Chrissy's salon.

“Hair by crispy,” several others joked.

Although Dixie is clearly trying to avoid any hair drama, fans are certainly convinced that Chrissy is to blame for her faulty extensions as more viewers point the finger at the controversial stylist.
