Ethan Klein, of YouTube comedy duo H3H3, is taking shots at social media star Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le for insulting his wife, Hila, during a response video in early January.

RiceGum claimed that Klein’s depression stemmed from Hila’s “boring” disposition, calling her “wack” and recommending that Klein pay to surround himself with a troop of “high energy girls.”

Klein shot back at RiceGum’s comments in kind, giving him the nickname “Rice Gumby” in honor of the children’s cartoon character from the 1950s. He went on to call Hila his “beautiful, pregnant wife,” and claimed that she was the reason that “anything good has happened” in his life.

That wasn’t all; Klein went on to write a short diss track calling out the YouTuber, reminding Le that Hila is a “self-made millionaire” who served in Israel’s armed forces for two years. 

He went on to show footage of Le’s appearance on Logan Paul’s ‘imPaulsive’ podcast, where he claimed that he “got the bag” despite feeling remorse surrounding his involvement with a possible gambling and scam website (which allegedly paid the YouTuber over $100,000 for promoting its services) .

“Yeah, but she got the bag without selling her soul,” Klein said of the debacle. “…you chase clout to fill a hole in your soul.”

The beef between the two YouTubers began after Klein called out RiceGum for promoting MysterBrand.net, an alleged scam website that appeared to promote gambling to Le’s young audience.

RiceGum has yet to reply to Klein’s video as of January 20.

TikToker Zoe Laverne has spoken out after facing a huge backlash from multiple leaked videos showing her allegedly kissing an underage fan.

Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing 19-year-old Zoe and a 13-year-old called Connor exchanging a kiss, confirming previous accusations from ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt.

In the days before, leaked Instagram messages showed that Cody and Amber raised concerns over “very intense” interactions with Connor. Zoe had previously denied allegations of a relationship with an underage influencer.

Despite leaving Instagram in September following a lip-syncing controversy, Zoe appears to have created, and now runs, a fandom Instagram account called “zlpfandom2.0.” Shortly after the videos leaked, she explained via the account that she would be taking a break from social media, but did not address the issue.

Zoe explained that she and Connor have separated

Her mom, however, did come online to share her thoughts and defended Zoe’s relationship with Connor, saying “Anybody can reach over and kiss somebody. They’re best friends.”

On October 28, Zoe finally addressed the videos on the fandom Instagram account.  She wrote, “I would like to say I am aware of what was leaked.. but Connor was not raped, etc. Connor and I kissed yes.. never had a relationship but we did catch feelings for each other after being so close. These videos were from months ago and we both realized it was wrong and we both cut it off.”

She explained that she understood the ramifications of her actions, adding, “before anything was leaked I did tell his mom we kissed. She wasn’t happy obviously but she understood that we are both teenagers and that feelings can be caught.

“I am aware that I am an adult and I am aware that I have done something wrong and I am very sorry for what I have done. Connor and I will [livestream] together as soon as this all calms down and explain ourselves.”

She also confirmed that the situation has been settled and the two have separated. “Connor and I have had no communication for 3 days now. We are still friends but we think it’s best to stop talking and work on each other’s mental health and spend time with our families”

Despite the very serious controversy, Zoe’s TikTok account continues to grow above 17 million followers.
