In a puzzling Instagram Live, musician Mario Judah has claimed that a clip of him allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend was staged, and that he made the video to raise awareness of cheaters. 

“What happened in my Live the other night was acted out to show you all what happens when you are all in a f**ked up relationship,” he said. “If you end up in an abusive relationship, or hurtful relationship, you end up hurting each other.”

Addressing people in abusive relationships, Judah said that if people are going through a situation like this, they can contact him or the National Domestic Abuse Helpline. Signing off, he said: “Stop abusing someone because you’re getting cheated on, and stop cheating!”

Fans had a mixed reacti0n to Judah’s revelation. While some criticized him for the video, calling him a “clout chaser”, others dubbed the video “embarrassing”. One fan on Twitter said: “I have no words.”

In other videos, Judah claims his ex cheated on him. Leading up to the alleged “beating” video, Judah posted a series of Tweets directed at people who cheat. “I hate cheaters,” he said in one Tweet. “I hope y’all die in a pool filled with Hot sauce!!! [sic]”

He also posted a video wherein he talks about giving his ex-girlfriend the world and then she cheated.

As for the “beating” video in question, it was originally on Instagram Live, before circulating on Twitter in mid-January. The video, which is mostly pitch black, depicts Judah appearing to notice his ex on the street before coming out of his car to beat her.

He can be heard saying: “I don’t give a f**k. I don’t give a f**k if she can’t walk no more. F**k it. That’s what she gets. F**k that b*tch, bro!” Throughout the video a friend can be heard to be calling out to him and trying to encourage him coma back to the car, telling him that he has too much to lose.

Judah’s ex-girlfriend is yet to comment publicly on the situation.

Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
