YouTubers Corinna Kopf and Alex Wassabi have hit out at TikToker Hootie Hurley for publicly exposing his private relationship with Vanessa Merrell without her consent.

Popular TikToker Hootie, posted a video on Monday revealing that he had been in a relationship with YouTuber and actress Vanessa Merrell, whose fame stems from her channel with her twin Veronica.

Hootie used a popular audio clip from Larray’s diss track ‘canceled,’ with the lyrics “I thought a b*tch who lost the baddest b*tch said sum.” The clip has been trending among influencers on TikTok and is typically used to refer to breakups.

Hootie appeared to imply that he misses Vanessa and that he wants her back, but in the process revealed that they had a relationship, to begin with.

The Merrell Twins like to keep their personal lives private

The Merell Twins typically keep their personal lives private, which is why Hootie’s video shocked and outraged fans. One person on TikTok wrote, “Every single Merrell Twin fan knows how much the girls value their privacy and the fact that he just posts this without her consent is infuriating.”

Another person wrote “I’m pretty positive Vanessa did not consent to this. She never told us about your relationship so this should be kept private and not be used for clout.”

Fans weren’t the only ones outraged by the video. Youtuber Corinna Kopf hit out at Hootie on Twitter saying, “What in your right mind makes you think it’s okay to post videos to the internet from a past relationship that you never got consent to post. imagine not respecting a woman’s privacy just so you can get a few likes on TikTok.”

She went on to say “Not only that, you’ve been asked by multiple people to take down the video and still choose not to. you’re complete trash my guy. not to mention you’re too scared to even pick up my calls.”

YouTuber Alex Wassabi also hit out at Hootie for the video, tweeting “thought you were better than this @HootieHurley. looking desperate bro smh.” But Hootie seems to have no shame, having only responded “Bro I just miss her so much.”

As outrage still bubbles away across Twitter and TikTok, Hootie refuses to both take down the video. Meanwhile, Vanessa herself is yet to comment.


Froste wins Nadeshot Twitter bet to give 100 Thieves CEO hilarious tattoo

100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag made a bet with streamer ‘Froste’ on Twitter. Get 100,000 retweets, and he’d get one of the most ridiculous tattoos ever. Froste took up the challenge, and won in just over 90 minutes, rallying the gaming community like never before.

Retweet challenges for free merch, ludicrous stunts, and other big things have gone viral before. However, none have gone as viral, as fast, and for as drastic a consequence, like Froste’s hilarious tattoo bet with Nadeshot.

It started rather simply. Nadeshot shared a photo of his new tattoo with the caption of “another one down, a million more to go until this arm is filled up.”

Froste took that “million more” as a challenge. “How many retweets on a tweet for you to get ‘Sex is temporary, gaming is forever’ tatted on you?” he asked.

Nadeshot set the bar at 100,000, confident that Froste wouldn’t win the bet because he “don’t have that type of pull.” Oh, how wrong Nadeshot was.

As soon as Froste called the gamers to assemble, thousands of retweets started pouring in. It started off with other 100 Thieves content creators like Valkyrae. Then, all the big names got in on it.

Ninja, CouRage, DrLupo, Timthetatman ⁠— even Zedd got in with their retweets. Esports orgs like Cloud9, G2 Esports, and Ninjas in Pyjamas helped out Froste with the bet too, and the CDL and Raven Software even took up the cause.

As the retweets kept flooding in, Nadeshot got more nervous.

“It’s already at 10k? You’re lying. You’re lying. It ain’t at 10k already. You’re lying,” he said on stream while the challenge was going down.

“First of all, Ninjas in Pyjamas, I respect everything you’ve done in this space. Used to be a fan when I was younger, but why did you retweet that and why are you in my chat,” he added later on, singling out the Swedish org.

“This is my body forever, and it was Froste ⁠— I didn’t think Froste was ever capable of bringing the gaming community together.”

Once it hit the point of no return, Nadeshot resigned to the fact that the gaming community hated him. Well, not really, but kind of. “Why are you guys doing this, I thought you were my friends,” he said on Twitter, dejected.

Then, when the moment finally ticked over, he turned on Arms of an Angel and wept on stream. Not before a quick little outburst though.

Will Nadeshot follow with the bet? Yes, yes he will.

“Just so I have it on the record; I haven’t decided where I’m going to get the tattoo, but yes, I’m a man of my word and I’m going to get the tattoo,” he said on stream.

Now, the community is holding their breath for what will be one of the greatest moments of 2021. Let’s just hope 100 Thieve’ sponsors don’t pull out after the hilarious stunt.
