TikToker Griffin Johnson has released a diss track aimed at ex-girlfriend Dixie D’Amelio and Sway house member Noah Beck after they kissed in Dixie’s latest music video.

Griffin Johnson was recently dumped by Dixie D’Amelio after cheating rumors surfaced that he has since denied. After the dramatic breakup, Griffin has faced backlash online for his behavior online including a ‘fake’ apology he posted to YouTube.

In the meantime, Dixie has been killing it with recent projects including her and Charli’s collaboration with Morphe, a partnership with Hollister, and all the promotion around her single ‘Be Happy.’ On September 20, Dixie released the music video for the remix to the song with Blackbear and Lil Mosey.

Fans of the star went crazy over the scene in the video of Noah Beck and Dixie kissing on a beach, seemingly confirming that the pair could be dating.

Despite major signs that appeared to give the impression the two were in a relationship or at least testing the waters, the pair have previously denied any involvement with each other. Noah said that they were “just best friends, just good friends” which dashed the hopes of many fans.

Just last week it appeared that Griffin was totally fine with the situation. He said to the Hollywood Fix, “Yeah, dude, I don’t care. We’re friends!” when asked about Noah and Dixie. “They looked happy,” he continued  “Noah’s doggin’ out. Respect, you know?”

“It’s just people chirping, you know? I would say it’s almost like good fun. They’re giving us a hard time. I don’t really take it that deep.”

However, Griffin is evidently less than fine with the potential new couple, after he released his diss track “Convenient” on YouTube on Sunday. While he didn’t mention Noah or Dixie by name, the references are unmissable. In the chorus, Griffin says, “She said I cheated, that’s just fucked up, but you believed it, ain’t that convenient.”

Referring to his breakup with Dixie and the “dirty laundry” exposed online, he raps “She took it out of context, now my heart’s in the comments,” and “you text me while I’m writing this song like you know the difference between right and wrong.” With clear reference to Noah Beck, Griffin says, “You said you’re just friends but you’re wearing his clothes.”

Griffin has since posted cryptic tweets that appear to refer to the track, saying “Cheaters cheat, lovers love. I’m a lover.” and “In a world full of deception, be the person that forgives. I’m setting the record straight, but I’ve forgiven. Life’s too short to hold a grudge.”

Both Noah and Dixie are yet to respond.

Former Overwatch pro Ryuhejong suspended from Gen.G following Twitch drama

Former Overwatch League star Jehong ‘Ryujehong’ Ryu has been suspended from the Gen.G organization after reportedly making sexist comments on stream.

Widely regarded as one of the best Ana and flex support players around, Ryujehong is a familiar name to any Overwatch esports fan. He was one of the most popular players in OWL before stepping away from the competitive scene after the Vancouver Titans nuked their roster back in May 2020.

On January 11, 2021, Gen.G announced that RJH would be joining their org as a content creator, which makes sense, as he was a figurehead for the org’s Seoul Dynasty squad during the League’s first two seasons.

Following what was a very short honeymoon period, the Korean-based org has now suspended Ryu for sexist comments he made on stream that quickly caught the attention of social media, as you can see below:

On January 16, Jehong streamed alongside a female streamer named Haegi, and reportedly made a number of sexist comments towards her multiple times, and even called her out for interrupting him, claiming that women shouldn’t interrupt men.

Since the stream happened the VOD has been deleted, but this is the internet, and the comments were quickly translated into English, kicking off the storm of social media backlash.

On January 19, Gen.G’s Chief Operating Officer Arnold Hur announced that the org was suspending Ryujehong “indefinitely” due to his on stream-comments.

“I’m personally very disappointed in the language used during the stream by Jehong. He was wrong, and I find it uncharacteristic of the person I knew who has always been a considerate, kind-hearted teammate,” Hur wrote. “Our belief is that whether you are a player or streamer, anybody with a platform should understand the responsibility of the higher standards that come with it. As such, we have suspended all of Jehong’s team-related activities indefinitely.”

Like Hur mentioned, Jehong did put out an apology of his own after the firestorm started, where he apologized for what he said, and promised to watch how he speaks in the future, but added he won’t be censoring himself either, according to a translation provided by @hannahhycho on Twitter.

“I am trying to move my streams towards the streamer Ryujehong. I know there are many people who used to watch my old streams who are struggling to adjust to the chat and are confused by the fact I will be using ‘streamer memes’ but I hope you can understand,” RJH wrote, according to the translation. “From now on, I will listen to feedback for my streams and chat to develop them further… I saw some messages from people who aren’t my fans and I want to tell them to stop fanning the flames.”

Just in case there weren’t enough wrinkles to this story, Haegi, the female streamer who was broadcasting with Ryujehong when the incident took place, has come out and defended him according to translations by Reddit user Great-Reno, saying they were bantering back and forth and what happened wasn’t what it seemed.

“Why RJH gets all the blame when I made sexist jokes with him either? This is a bit undeserved,” Haegi said in a YouTube video posted after the outrage began, according to the translation. “I’m cool with it. Why does it matter when the person involved with the matter feels okay? I don’t see why people get offended by this. Live in comfort please.”

Opinion from the female streamer that RJH was with from Competitiveoverwatch

Now, even if it just was some friendly banter back and forth, the kind of language Ryujehong apparently used just doesn’t fly when you’re signed to a major esports org like Gen.G, and is also a huge disappointment to the greater Overwatch community who saw him as a role model, and just a genuine, stand-up dude.

It remains to be seen when or if RJH will return from his suspension to being an active member of Gen.G.
