Hype House manager Thomas Petrou wasn’t convinced of TikTok and Instagram rising talent Roselie Arritola’s response denying a second break-in to the LA mansion.

Arritola, a 14-year-old influencer, had previously received backlash for TikTok videos that showed her in and around the Hype House without the permission of the residents. The renewed criticism toward her stems from clips recently posted that showed her there again.

According to the young content creator, her mother had published those videos without her knowledge, but reassured audiences that she was “especially not at the Hype House for a second time” after what happened before.

After Arritola posted the since-deleted Tik Tok at the Hype House, Petrou asked her to “please stop breaking into [their] home” in the video’s comments.

“My mother had posted three videos, I believe, without letting me know,” she said. “And they were videos we had filmed when we were there, but no, we were not at the Hype House for the second time.”

He expressed doubt after Arritola posted her response to speculation. This caused waves of comments from general audiences expressing similar sentiments, as well as a brief chime-in from Dixie D’amelio on the situation.

As the drama developed, Petrou responded to Arritola’s account of the situation, saying: “Whoa whoa I’m so sorry. You only broke into a house once! So sorry, that makes it better. Your mom should take your phone.”

His response once again set people off, which prompted a follow-up explanation from Arritola after the exchange resulted in cyberbullying.

“It’s beyond why Thomas felt the need to tell everyone that I’m lying about not being at the original [Hype] House for a second time because I’m really not,” Arritola said. “One: I’m in Florida so I don’t really know how I would be at your original house. And two: I do have receipts that I can show you in that outfit from the only time I was there.”

She asked the Hype House manager to refrain from accusations without any proof as it’s causing her mental hardships from the online backlash.

This comes just days after Petrou begged fans to stop showing up at the house, as it was starting to become a problem for residents of the local neighborhood.

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.
