Tensions escalated further when the two engaged in a heated exchange of personal insults. Van Dien retaliated to Rain’s remarks about her lack of knowledge regarding trick shots by reminding him of a past incident where he had a close call with overdosing on stream.
Attempting to address their issues, the pair decided to meet and discuss their grievances on camera. However, the conversation quickly spiraled out of control. This led to Van Dien storming out of the room in a visibly upset state. She clearly stated that she would sever ties with FaZe Clan if they released the video, demonstrating the extent of her distress.
Unfortunately, Rain disregarded Van Dien’s request and uploaded the video to YouTube. This caused it to rapidly spread across social media platforms. This move generated significant backlash, as viewers expressed their concern over the mistreatment of the organization’s newest member.
In response to the public outcry, FaZe Clan’s official Twitter handle released a statement denouncing the mistreatment of Grace Van Dien and affirming their support for her. The organization emphasized its commitment to providing a platform for diverse voices and viewpoints, acknowledging that recruitment processes often lead to contrasting opinions. However, they made it unequivocally clear that mistreating Van Dien was not acceptable and that they stood firmly by her side.
FaZe Clan’s statement read: “FaZe is no stranger to contrasting viewpoints and passionate opinions on the future of the brand. Recruitment has always drawn that out. But make no mistake, the mistreatment of our newest member is in no way OK. Grace joined in hopes to bring her voice to FaZe, and we stand by her.”
