FaZe Clan’s Ricky Banks expresses serious concern for the mental health of Yousef ‘Fousey’ Erakat during Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem’s documentary about the disastrous “Hate Die, Love Arrives” event.
Banks talks to Fousey on the phone during the first episode of KEEMSTAR’s documentary, ““The Hard Truth About FouseyTube”.
FaZe Clan’s COO speaks from experience and tells his fellow content creator that he is sounding manic:
“A lot of the shit you’re saying right now is shaking me fuck up because it’s like crazy how similar it was to like… I don’t know if you remember when I had a meltdown on social media, straight up, I was like manic, like straight manic and I had all these aspirations to be a philanthropist,
“In the weirdest way it felt so good to feel crazy”
After hanging up from the phone call, Banks doubles down on his concerns about Fousey, telling the people around the table, including KEEMSTAR, that they need to “slow it down”.
Some of the people in the room are convinced that Fousey’s July 15 event is nothing more than promotion for a music video that he is planning to release, but Banks wants them to understand that they are “not talking about someone that is all there right now”.
“He’s fucking going through a manic episode, one trillion percent. One BAJILLION percent,
“All I’m saying here is that if you don’t think Fousey is going through a manic episode right now, you are lost and have no understanding of what it means to be manic,”
The “Hate Dies, Love Arrives” show at the Greek Theatre was eventually closed down prematurely due to a bomb threat, but Fousey has come under fire for more than that.
A number of YouTubers, including KEEMSTAR, PewDiePie and Philip DeFranco have taken shots at their fellow content creator for his promotion of the event, which included heavy insinuations about superstars like Drake and J. Cole performing.
None of these music icons did appear at the show, and The Blast reports that sources close to drake say he “definitely doesn’t know that guy and this is the first he has ever heard of him.”
