FaZe Banks or Ricky Banks is the Chief Operating Officer of the gaming group called as FaZe Clan. Around 2-3 months back, FaZe Banks had landed into some unnecessary controversy.
FaZe Banks’ August 2017 Club Incident
YouTuber Jake Paul posted a vlog titled ‘My assistant is assaulted…’. In the video, Jake is seen with his assistant Meg, Erika Costell, and Anthony Trujillo and is explaining what had actually taken place in Warwick Club, LA when his assistant Meg was supposedly assaulted by FaZe Banks.
Meg is heard narrating the episode when she said that she saw FaZe Banks making out with a girl who was not his girlfriend, Alissa Violet (who is Jake’s ex). Meg also said that when she was returning from the washroom, FaZe Banks allegedly clotheslined her and pushed her and lead to a bruise on her neck.
FaZe Banks was, of course, disturbed by this lie and shot back that he had not done any such nasty thing. He also got the screenshots and testimonials to support his claims. He also said that the footage from the club showed that no such incident had taken place. One of the former members of Team 10, Max Beaumont also defended FaZe Banks in this and said that he neither saw FaZe Banks kissing any girl nor had he seen him hurting Meg. What Meg is claiming could have just been an accident. Jake Paul agreed to let these things be put in the past but FaZe Banks was not ready to forget and said that he would sue Team 10 and Jake Paul for defamation.
