Still from the body-cam footage right before Lovely Peaches’ dog was taken.

During the interaction, she can be heard saying “I knew it would get me attention on the internet,” after officers asked her why she threatened her dog.

Original story follows below.


Social media users have demanded that Peaches, real name Brittany Johnson, be held accountable this week after she uploaded a series of disturbing photos and videos of her allegedly abusing 6-month-old puppy, Max.

Some of the upsetting content included choking the dog, kicking it and spraying perfume in its eyes. The day before Johnson was arrested, she uploaded a picture to Instagram depicting her hanging the dog on a coat hanger.

Following the public outcry to these posts, with several social media users contacting PETA, animal control and local authorities, public website Jail View confirms that DeKalb County Police Department arrested Johnson at 6:32PM EST on Friday 22 January.

There is uncertainty on the dog’s current welfare. This is because the day before her arrest, Brittany uploaded an image to Instagram claiming that the dog had died. This comes after she previously told her followers: “If this one dies too, I’ll eat it on live for you guys.”

YouTuber DefNoodles claims to have received “mixed reports” on the dog’s status. He explained to a fan: “At this time, I can’t confirm any of it. Still looking for a source. Will update when I do.”

However, several Twitter users have claimed to be in touch with local authorities, which gives hope that the dog is safe. One Twitter user claims to have spoken to both animal control and DeKalb County, and says that they have requested access to an open record report to verify this.

Further to this, when Johnson’s abuse of her dog first went viral, another Twitter user claimed they’d been in touch with animal control, who said that the dog is safe and well. There is also a TikTok circulating by user White Plastic that appears to show Max being placed in police custody.

This isn’t the first time Brittany has been involved in abuse cases. She is previously alleged to have shown a dead dog on her Instagram live, and in July her young daughter, which Johnson previously said online that she planned to sell to human traffickers, was placed in the custody of her father.

It is unclear both whether the dog is alive and how long Brittany will be police custody for. We will update this story with news as it emerges.

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.

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.

He even raised the stakes. With Froste getting 100,000 with ease, Nadeshot believes he can go bigger and get a million. The prize? Picking where he has to get the tattoo.

“If it gets a million retweets, the internet gets to pick where I put it on my body — wait, besides my face! Besides my face,” he said.

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.
