Twitch is a very welcoming and liberal platform compared to other social media. Similarly, it is also a platform that has controversy, and people get slammed and bashed on a daily basis.

Regardless, many people have established themselves there and have a massive fanbase. One such Twitch streamer is Hey Tony, best known by his username, @hey_t0ny.

Recently, he was slammed for making racist comments and faced massive backlash from his fans and followers. After that, he instantly erased all of his Twitch VoDs and subsequently made his social media accounts private.

Recently, @hey_t0ny was streaming on Twitch alongside his girlfriend, @bbjess. There, the streamer was chatting to his chat while playing Fall Guys and had some opinions that even the players playing with him questioned.

The debate eventually led to him declaring, “it’s okay to be racist,” and that landed one Twitch streamer in hot water. Although access to the VoDs is no longer feasible, recordings of on-stream occasions have recorded some of the erased footage. 

After the “it’s okay to be racist” comment, someone in-call with @hey_t0ny asked, “What the [expletive] does that mean?” 

In another video, he lauded the Unabomber, stating, “Ted Kaczynski is somewhat of a genius,” followed by a text-to-speech babble ridiculing him, asking, “Do you think Hitler is a genius, too?”

Kaczynski, commonly known as the Unabomber, is a former mathematics professor and American domestic terrorist. He killed three individuals and wounded 23 others in a countrywide postal bombing campaign against persons he claimed were developing modern technology and destroying the environment between 1978 and 1995. 

@hey_t0ny praising Kaczynski and telling his fans and followers that it was okay to be racist did not sit right with a lot of people. As a result, they took to Twitter to call him out.

Many bashed him for being openly racist and supporting such a cause. Similarly, many of them also slammed Twitch for giving a platform to @hey_t0ny.

At the time of writing, @hey_t0ny has not responded to the controversy and taken accountability for it but has deleted all his social media platforms.  Similarly, he has not been banned from Twitch and is still a partner.

Hey Tony (@hey_t0ny)’s breakup after the controversy

Soon after the backlash, people started calling out @hey_t0ny’s girlfriend, Jess. So the latter took to Twitter to announce that she was no longer dating the streamer.

She confirmed they had broken up and asked her fans and followers to give her space. She said she was hurt and needed time to determine what to do next.

Talking about the controversy, Jess wrote that she did not condone any of @hey_t0ny’s words or actions. People were very supportive of Jess’s decision.

Since she lives together with @hey_t0ny, people asked her to take her time to move on and not rush into it. They lauded her courage and asked her to take care of herself amidst the chaos.

As Barden is a public figure, many of her followers noticed her imperfect teeth in addition to her exceptional acting ability.

Previously, the actress would hide her teeth out of fear of being seen in public, but she now embraces her natural teeth. On July 28, 2020, Barden shared a photo of herself smiling and showing her teeth. “#challengeaccepted and I did a full teeth smile picture,” she wrote in the caption.

However, people still continue to point out her teeth. While Barden’s new film Pieces of Her was released, some Reddit users felt that her character didn’t work and discussed her teeth. One person wrote, “Jessica Barden is a very capable actress but I thought she was dreadful in this …she struggled with the accent, very stilted. Genuine question did she have false teeth in?”

How Jessica Barden overcame adult acne?

Barden has had acne since she was 17. The actress told Vogue about her experience with acne and being a public figure.

She said, “It was really embarrassing and painful. I remember when we went to Milan Fashion Week with Gucci and my skin was really bad around that time. The make-up artists were so nice, but they were presuming I was 16 or 17 instead of 25, which made me feel really self-conscious because you don’t feel like you’re a grown-up.”

Barden added, “On the whole, everybody has been so kind to me. My agents have never made a thing about it which I’m so grateful for. But there were a few times on set where I would hear people saying they’d have to do some kind of CGI on my skin, and you just feel bad.”

The actress also revealed that she had spent lots of money on skincare. She believed that her skin problem was related to her anxiety because when she was stressed, her hormones went crazy, resulting in acne.

Realizing that, she began to meditate, cut back on caffeine, and exercise daily, which helped her acne. More than that, Barden has accepted her natural beauty and feels comfortable in her skin, regardless of what others say.

Alana Haim And Jimmy Fallon’s Cheating Rumor Explained

Haim is a member of the Indie pop rock band Haim, along with her sisters Este and Danielle. The band formed in 2006 and has released various successful albums, such as Days Are Gone in 2013 and Women in Music Pt. III in 2002.

The 33-year-old musician has been part of Fallon’s talk show many times. Is there any possibility that these two are sneaking out with each other? Fallon is a married man; is he cheating on his wife?

How did the rumor start?

The rumor began when the gossip queen Kyle Marisa Roth talked about it in one of her TikTok videos. In the video, she regarded gossip, as per her, the “blind item,” which she was going to reveal was so spicy that she put her fireball aside.

“Speaking of cheating, one of the members of this all-female band is sleeping with a married late-night talk show host,” she exposed, “That is Jimmy Fallon, and whoo! Alana Hiam.”

While going through the video’s comment section, some fans were stunned. One of the TikTok users commented, “Nnoooooo! I am so naïve and must live in a tiny bubble. I always thought he was so great 🥺 tell me it’s not true.”

Some users didn’t believe the news, while a few connected Fallon’s rumors with Ariana Grande. One of them commented, “there was a rumor him and Ariana were sleeping together at one point too.”

Even on Twitter, one of the fans tweeted, “The thought of Alana Haim and Jimmy Fallon is making me physically nauseous please don’t be true.”

While this rumor is circulating, one of the fans asked about Haim and Fallon in the Q&A session by deuxmoi on January 24.

The Instagram gossip page with 1.7 M followers had invited its followers by stating, “what’s the hot gossip lets discuss…,” in the session to which a fan had asked, “Alana Haim/ Jimmy Fallon???? Not real right?”

The fan certainly meant the rumors between Fallon and Haim, to which the deuxmoi wrote, “NOT REAL CONFIRMED,” and posted in its story.

Thus, the rumor was falsified, and it eventually died with the statement of the gossip page, which must have relieved Haim and Fallon, a married man.

Who is Jimmy Fallon married to?

Fallon is married to his wife, Nancy Juvonen, and they are parents to daughters Winnie and Franny. Juvonen is a film producer, and she was married to her husband on December 22, 2007.

Juvonen revealed the secret of their long-lasting relationship. She said, “I think keep your sense of humor. And I think keep some independence. Neither of you should be so reliant on the other.”

Alana Haim talks about her first love

Haim spoke about her first love in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. She confessed it was sad reflecting on her deeply intense first romantic love, and she admitted she’ll never feel the same way again as people up walls after their first love.

“I feel like that first love is just so deeply intense. The first cut is the deepest. You never have a love like that again. That’s a thing that’s kind of sad about it,” she said, “Once you have that first love that cuts you so deeply, you never will feel that deeply ever again.”
