Lazarbeam explains reason behind his YouTube suspension

Popular Australian YouTuber Lannan ‘Lazarbeam’ Eacott has explained why his channel has been suspended by YouTube and also revealed when he should be returning to uploads. 

While YouTubers can pretty much upload whatever they want, if they want to keep their channel thriving, they do have to follow some stringent rules or face some harsh consequences. 

In the case of Lazarbeam, who has over 18 million subscribers across his two channels, his main channel was struck down by YouTube on September.

While he didn’t explain why right, instead, using his social media to poke fun about having an extended break from the platform, he’s finally opened up.

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Using his second channel, Lazar, the 25-year-old noted that his suspension stems from a strike on a video of his from earlier in the year. 

“What happened was, one of my TikTok videos from four or five months ago, there was a clip in it where I’m assuming some kid did something stupid, so I got a channel strike for child safety,” the Aussie explained.

He continued: “Like, no kid got seriously hurt, like there’s no lasting damage, it was just a funny TikTok. But, YouTube deemed this dangerous activity by a child.” While the video might have gone against the guidelines, Lazarebeam said that he doesn’t believe the punishment fits the crime but YouTube has a “tough job” and made a call. 

The YouTuber added that, while he was also hit with a strike in August, that one has been lifted – so he doesn’t have two strikes against his channel, just the one from the TikToks.

His suspension is set to end on Friday, October 2nd but given that he’s in contact with YouTube about getting it removed, it could be lifted before then – so he could be back on his main channel in no time.

TikTok star Zoe Laverne under fire for allegedly kissing underage fan

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.

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.
