Controversial YouTuber ‘Ice_Poseidon’ has threatened legal action after being accused of intentionally saying racists things in a public setting.

This comes in response to radio host and self proclaimed ‘anti-racism strategist’ Tariq Nasheed posting a video of the YouTuber on Twitter, captioned with some strong, accusatory words.

The video, posted on May 28th, depicts Ice_Poseidon and some of his friends/associates sitting in a restaurant type setting and outwardly making comments and jokes.

After a period of time, they get confronted by an African American gentlemen, who is clearly upset by what the group had been saying. 

The situation becomes more heated and tense as time passes, and it appears that both parties get kicked out of the restaurant by the end of the video.

Suspected white supremacist “youtuber” Ice Poseidon and some of his alt-right affiliated buddies were in a restaurant in Los Angeles making slick little racist comments out loud around Black customers, and they ended up getting G-checked.

Upon seeing this tweet, the YouTuber replied with a threat to pursue legal action against the radio host.

Nasheed was apparently unfazed by the threat, essentially telling Ice_Poseidon that it was game on.

Of course this is not the first time that Ice_Poseidon has found himself in a spotlight of controversy; the content creator remains banned from Twitch after a 2017 swatting incident occurred as a result of him publicly revealing his location.

Whether or not he does decide to pursue legal action, it is worth keeping an eye to see whether this video and situation lands him in hot water yet again.

TikTok star Giulia Amato has hit out at fans on TikTok for constantly comparing her to Addison Rae and other influencers, claiming that it feels like she has been “given a different identity.”

Since launching her channel in April 2019, 17-year-old Giulia Amato has made a name for herself on TikTok. As well as having an impressive 1.8 million followers, her content — which includes dances, lip-syncing and POVs — has helped her amass nearly 55 million likes on the app.

However, with many fans noticing Amato’s striking resemblance to TikTok superstar Addison Rae, her comments are often flooded with comparisons, and she’s faced accusations of copying Rae in the past.

For example, in October, Amato was accused of “copying” Addison Rae after dying her hair back to its natural brunette color shortly after Rae dyed her own hair brown.

In this TikTok, it is clear that Amato has had enough of the comparisons. She captioned the clip, “my name is Giulia Amato and I don’t want to be compared to other people everyday.”

Clearly referencing the Addison Rae comparisons, Amato continued: “So by now, you guys all know who I’m compared to. I don’t want to say her name because I don’t want it to look like I’m using her name to get clout for this video, but you guys know who I’m talking about.”

She elaborated even further: “My videos were, at first, filled with a lot of hate, with a lot of people comparing us, and that I can handle.”

“But I feel like it’s become a trend t0 give me different identities.”

Instagram: Addison Rae
Amato said in the TikTok that she finds herself being constantly compared to Addison Rae, who is currently starring in a remake of the movie ‘She’s All That.’

Noting how she’s recently been compared to a “mix” of Rae and “two or four” other high-profile TikTok stars, Amato asserted in the video that, contrary to accusations in the comments, she has never had cosmetic surgery or other treatments done to her face.

Sympathizing with Amato’s frustrations, fans on Instagram showed their support. One user said in a comment that got over 4,000 likes that “they are both gorgeous,” while another user said that fans should stop comparing because “we are all beautiful and have our own blessings, so no need to be jealous of each other.”

It appears that Amato has since deleted the TikTok from her account.
