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.


JakeNBake hit with DMCA strike for Kanye song in two-year-old Twitch clip

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
