Back in 2017, Gabbie Hanna was caught up in a major controversial situation in which she allegedly ‘falsely’ accused Rice gum, a fellow internet personality for assaulting her.
As the story goes, the two were in a party enjoying themselves: Rice on a couch with friends and Gabbie busy updating her snapchat live feed. She happened to film Rice in her live feed challenging him into a freestyle Rap battle.
Unlucky for her, Rice Gum was reportedly not in ‘the mood’ of being filmed live –and worse of all being challenged. He sprang up and smashed Gabbie’s phone on the ground –which according to onlookers was after unfruitful efforts of persuading her to stop filming him.
A couple of minutes later, Gabbie would trend online accusing Rice of not only smashing her phone but also physically assaulting her. Rice Gum came out later defending himself. According to him, he admitted to smashing her phone but denied all the physical assault claims –which were further backed by the people who saw the whole incident.
Even so, the scandal worked in Gabbie’s favor as her subscriber’s list was able to increase –more out of empathy and to support her. Unfortunately for Rice Gum, he was reported to have lost several subscribers who did not support his side of the story of what went down that day.
