Popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le fired some not-so-subtle shots toward social media star Jake Paul during the Ace Family charity basketball event, which threw down on January 11.

RiceGum faced off against Paul and other internet celebs in a test of skill to determine who would win a whopping $100,000 for charity of their choice. In order to take the prize, the YouTubers had to be the first contestant to make ten baskets in a row without dropping a shot – which proved to be quite a feat for those participating in the challenge.

Jake Paul ended up scoring the second seat in the lineup – which placed him right next to RiceGum’s spot on the court. RiceGum commented on their close proximity during his vlog of the experience, where he threw some playful shade toward Paul.

“I don’t know why he put me next to this guy,” RiceGum said of Ace Family patriarch Austin McBroom’s methods, after which the camera cut to a closeup of Paul distractedly looking into the camera.

“Jake Paul – did you do this on purpose?” McBroom teased over the mic.

Despite McBroom’s teasing, the two YouTube rivals were seen making friendly conversation shortly thereafter, after which RiceGum found himself out of the running upon missing a shot in the lineup.

In the end, none of the invited YouTubers completed the challenge; McBroom’s  buddy took the prize after being gifted an honorary spot in the competition, managing to make all ten shots thanks to his career in college basketball.

The Ace Family themselves were recently in the news due to a controversial video, in which McBroom purchased a phallic lollipop for his toddler from a Spencer’s store in early January.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
