On November 21, Ashtronova took to Twitter to share her story of what happened a year ago with Mew. She explains her trip to Texas to attend a Subathon, a Twitch event hosted by streamers to encourage more subscriptions to her channel. During the event, Ashtronova expressed how grateful she was to Mew and FaZe Clan for welcoming and supporting her at the big event. After participating in the content creation home, she, Mew and a group of streamers spent the night partying at a club, where things eventually took a turn for the worse.

As the night progressed, Ashtronova recounts that she was heavily intoxicated while Mew appeared to be sober and helped her go outside for some fresh air. At this point, Ashtronova claims Mew expressed feelings for her and forced a kiss on her without getting her consent. In a TwitLonger post from the streamer, she regrets spending the night with Mew and believes she had sexual activity with him, although she can’t remember what happened.

FaZe Clan has made headlines in the news over the past few years for several missteps, ranging from former member Tfue’s lawsuit for allegedly preventing him from doing business, to signing an underage player and flouting existing ones labor laws. Following the announcement of the suspension, Mew issued a statement of his own, expressing his intention to pursue legal action against the allegations he is facing.

It’s an unfortunate step backwards for FaZe Clan and its members after a great year. After signing Snoop Dogg as a member of the board of directors, WWE’s Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon joined the team, opening the door to potential collaborations with World Wrestling Entertainment. Meanwhile, Ashtronova continues to tell her story and posts several exchanges of messages between her and Mew as receipts to back up her accusations.
