Increasingly declining goodwill between the company’s influencers, falling stock values, and departing celebrity members are some of the few issues that the gaming company is facing.

The clash between FaZe Rain and Grace Van Dien intensified as Rain’s controversial remarks about Grace’s inclusion in the Clan prompted her to confront him. She questioned his presence at the contract signing and clarified that she had never met him. In response to that, Rain alleged that Grace was only signed because of her brief appearance on Stranger Things.

In response, Grace fired back at Rain, telling him to “get f**king wrecked.” However, this exchange only fueled the flames further. Rain retaliated, saying, “Grace, I’m sorry. All I want to say is, you’re Gold in Valorant. Make Stranger Things your entire personality, even though you were on only one episode.”
