KSI asks fans for help after police allegedly steal Deji’s dog

Popular YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji is asking fans to sign a petition for the return of younger brother Deji’s dog, after the animal was allegedly stolen by police in September of 2018.

According to statements made by Deji throughout his several YouTube videos on the subject, his German Shepard, Tank, was taken by police after his neighbor swatted the animal with a package left on their front stoop.

Statements from Deji’s neighbors and local law enforcement collected by The Blast held that Tank had been detained under the “Dangerous Dogs Act of 1991,” due to two separate incidents that resulted in injury to “members of the public” – one of which was deemed “serious.”

However, Deji claimed that Tank had merely nipped his neighbor, after which the dog was taken to a “police-approved kennel.” Deji claimed that Tank was being trained as a K-9 unit, which authorities denied.

Thus far, it appears that Tank remains in police custody, until a charging decision can be made regarding the incident.

While Deji created a petition for Tank’s retrieval in mid-September 2018, the dog has yet to be returned to the YouTuber – prompting his older brother, KSI, to step in and speak out on the matter. KSI posted a Tweet imploring his fans to sign the appeal on January 20, claiming that Tank had been stolen by law enforcement.

As of January 20, the petition has over 410,000 of the necessary 500,000 signatures needed – a huge jump compared to the document’s previous 300,000 signatures following Deji’s initial videos covering the debacle.

KSI’s latest Tweet follows the end of a vicious, month long spat between the two brothers, which ended after Deji deleted a diss track towards KSI in early January.

TikTok star Zoe LaVerne is facing massive backlash after multiple videos surfaced of her allegedly kissing an underage fan. This comes days after leaked Instagram conversations from her ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt raised concerns of “very intense” interactions with an underage influencer.

A video on the ‘Def Noodles’ account featured a short clip showing the two. It was apparently only a short form of a much longer video showing more instances of the same behavior.

According to Def Noodles, LaVerne previously denied allegations of having a relationship with an underage person. This was in direct response to the allegations brought by Orlove’s hacked messages.

The video comes at a sensitive time for LaVerne, who was already getting heat for Orlove’s Instagram messages with VanPelt.

Zoe LaVerne once again removed herself from Instagram after the latest allegations.

In them, Orlove’s leaked exchange shows that he “left (LaVerne) because of her interactions with Connor. They got very intense and it’s something I do not stand by whatsoever. It’s p**dophillia.”

Another message, this time from Orlove to LaVerne, shows he cut communication from her. “My lawyers will handle the rest,” he said in reference to the “toxic” breakup between the two TikTok personalities.

LaVerne, who deleted her Instagram in mid-September in response to a separate lip-syncing debacle, once again removed herself from the Facebook-owned social platform.

In a private fandom account known to be run by LaVerne, she gave a message to her fans for her renewed hiatus from Instagram after the videos came out.

“Thank you for everything, really,” the account called ‘zlpfandom0.2’ wrote. “But for right now I don’t think I’ll be back on soial media again. I (still) have a lot to think about. I reall don’t wanna leave you guys but I’m tired of feeling this way. I’m tired of crying and hurting. It’s nothing but negativity to me anymore. I love you so much.”

LaVerne has over 17 million followers on TikTok and nearly 450,000 subscribers on YouTube. She’s been featured in TikToks and videos with other online celebrities ranging from Terin Sottile and ex-boyfriend Zephan Clark.

If the move offline is permanent, it’s not known if LaVerne will publicly respond to the latest videos that are surfacing.
