Controversial IRL streamer Ice Poseidon got into a physical altercation with fellow streamer Hampton Brandon – and caught the fistfight in a live broadcast on YouTube.

The two threw down on Hollywood Boulevard, where Poseidon streamed the altercation with an over the shoulder camera attached to the strap of his backpack, rendering the footage reminiscent of a first-person video game.

Although the beginning of the clip appeared to show the two making up, Hampton quickly removed his accessories and got into a fighting stance, which Poseidon then engaged.

While both streamers got a few punches in, Poseidon ultimately lost the brawl. He went live after the altercation to showcase his new wounds, congratulating his opponent while at the same time holding that he was the real winner of their spat.

“I’ll take the L,” he said during his post-fight broadcast. “But in the end, I still win.”

Poseidon claimed that their beef had sparked when he’d refused to stream with Hampton, who Poseidon felt had been upset at this rejection. He alleged that this had prompted Hampton to assault other members of his brand, the CX Network, before coming for Poseidon, himself.

Hampton’s assault on one of these members, Salmon Andy, was caught during a live stream, as well as another attack on CX streamer Sam Pepper – the full video of which has not yet been released.

Hampton and Poseidon mentioned throwing down in a legitimate boxing match in the beginning of their fight’s livestream, to boot. With YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul having boxed in late August, Ice Poseidon and Hampton could possibly have a potential boxing match in the future.

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.
