FaZe Banks under investigation for $30,000 of damage to Vegas hotel

FaZe Clan’s Ricky Banks is reportedly being investigated for $30,000 worth of damage to a hotel room in Las Vegas. 

The popular internet personality is under investigation, according to a report from TMZ. Authorities were called to the Encore At Wynn Las Vegas luxury hotel on October 14, claiming that he had destroyed the room he was staying at.

TMZ states that the room was a “disaster zone” when it was inspected, with holes in the walls, broken furniture, and soil from plants allegedly all over the floor. This prompted a destruction of property call to the police. 

PixabayFaZe Banks has been accused of trashing a hotel room in Las Vegas.

The extent of the damage, which is estimated to be near the $30,000 mark, would see a charge that can result in up to five years in prison. TMZ, though, claims that such a sentence is unlikely for Banks. 

No charges have been filed against Banks as of yet and it is likely that the hotel would drop the case so long as the damages have been paid. This is something that happens in Vegas regularly – as the article states. 

Banks and the FaZe organization have been accused of damaging property previously, too. 

Back in 2018, social media platform Hubrick – which was started by Norwegian entrepreneur Sebastian Guerts – accused the org of stealing “dozens of computers and gaming stations, some of the office furniture (…) and left it ransacked as little more than piles of empty boxes.” 

With the business seeking in excess of $1 million for the alleged “raid”, there have since been no public developments in that case. 

The BlastImages obtained by The Blast appear to show the damage done in an alleged “raid” of Hubrik.

At the time of writing, the co-owner of FaZe Clan – a hugely successful esports organization – is still yet to personally respond to the article published by TMZ on October 30. 

However, the tabloid news website did get a brief statement from his representatives on the hotel room accusations. 

“FaZe Clan and Encore are working together to resolve this matter,” the article states.

Millie Bobby Brown deleted her TikTok account without an explanation, and although her fans can understand why, they’ve been left wondering what the reason might be.

Millie Bobby Brown exploded in popularity after all the success of Stranger Things in the past few years. However, fans have been drawn to her bright and bubbly personality too, and she’s developed a big presence on social media

Millie Bobby Brown has almost 40 million followers on Instagram. It was always her biggest platform. However, her TikTok was incredibly popular too. It featured all kinds of content, including clips of her singing, dancing, and recreating viral trends like a normal teenager.

Strangely, she has now deleted her TikTok, and nobody knows why. It came as a huge surprise of her millions of followers, and many are left wondering if and when she’ll return to the video-sharing platform.

Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Still, that hasn’t stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

They’ve suggested everything from avoiding toxicity and needing space to more specific issues like being bombarded with homophobic memes.

It’s impossible to know for sure, but whatever her reason might be, it’s certainly understandable. For all we know, she might have watched The Social Dilemma and decided to cut back on screen time.

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

There are many reasons why Millie Bobby Brown might have deleted her TikTok. But in the end, it doesn’t change the fact that she has deleted it, and it’s a decision that her fans may need to support.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days.

Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight. She can do whatever she wants with her accounts, without explaining it to anyone.
