IRL streamer ICE_POSEIDON’s Subreddit has been quarantined, due to the platform’s new effort to prevent hoaxes, hate speech, and other issues that breach the website’s community guidelines.

Reddit has recently revamped their quarantine function, fencing potentially offensive communities into a less public sphere. While a post detailing the update cited Holocaust deniers, NSFW communities, and others as responsible for the revamp, it seems as though Poseidon’s page is also one of these groups.

Some users have speculated that the quarantine was due to the subreddit’s comment section, noting Poseidon’s notoriously toxic community.

Poseidon’s shenanigans and audience alike have garnered him multiple bans on Twitch. A few of these instances included asking for a girl’s phone number while livestreaming, or even a 2017 incident where Poseidon was swatted on a plane.

Poseidon apparently live streamed himself in an airport, where he mentioned his flight number and even his particular gate. This resulted in Poseidon’s audience swatting the plane, which was grounded due to a potential bomb threat.

Poseidon was one of several communities that saw a quarantine. Others subreddits cited included communities of ‘incels,’ a subreddit where users upload footage of people dying, pages dedicated to racism and sexism, as well as conspiracy pages, to boot.

It seems as though Poseidon’s community has gotten so toxic that it fits in with these disturbing categories.

Reddit’s new policy is meant to ‘incentivize positive behavior.’ While quarantined moderators can present an appeal to have the quarantine removed, it doesn’t look as though Poseidon’s has yet reached this stage.

Bryce Hall apologizes to Dixie D’Amelio & Noah Beck for stripper prank

YouTube star and Sway House member Bryce Hall has officially apologized to Dixie D’Amelio after pranking her boyfriend with strippers — and his way of saying sorry is one for the books.

On February 17, Hall uploaded a YouTube video in which he decided to prank Dixie by blindfolding Noah and hiring two exotic dancers to do their thing around him. During this time, Hall FaceTimed Dixie to show off the proceedings, leading the completely unamused D’Amelio sister to quickly end the call.

Unsurprisingly, many fans felt the prank was “insensitive” and potentially relationship-damaging; but while Dixie and Noah appear to be on good terms despite the practical joke, Hall has since decided to make up for his blunder in a big way.

A few days later, Hall brought Noah back to his home for yet another surprise — but this time, it was a far more positive one. After presenting Noah with a heartfelt letter, Bryce revealed that he’d purchased the TikTok-famous couple a voucher for a beachside hotel in Malibu, California, which they can redeem at any time.

“I got a suite for you guys on the beach in Malibu,” he explained. “It’s really nice. I felt bad for the prank. …and it’s a voucher, so you can go whatever day you want.”

Luckily, it seems that both Dixie and Noah are happy with Bryce’s unexpected gift, with Noah joking that “Bryce does have a heart!” before admitting: “That’s so nice, actually!”

“Thank you Bryce! That’s very kind,” Dixie added, who was let in on the situation — once again — via FaceTime. “I appreciate it!”

It looks like things are all smooth on the homefront with these three in wake of a prank that even had Dixie’s mother slamming Bryce Hall for being “disrespectful” to her daughter.

(Topic begins at 2:48)

Noah himself had even called for Hall to apologize beforehand, stating during paparazzi video: “He shouldn’t be apologizing to me. He should be apologizing to Dixie.”

While Bryce is known for his “party animal” lifestyle, it’s nice to see the TikTok star showing his soft side — especially when it brings together some of his best friends.
