However, she was kicked out of the restaurant after being accused of being a professional eater and competitor, trying to scam the business by the owner.

He asked her if she is a professional eater and she answered that she’d participated in a few food challenges, and added that she filmed them for her YouTube channel, after which he called her a liar and asked her to leave his property, which led to many negative reviews of the restaurant on Yelp. His daughter witnessed their confrontation and told the news that she felt Raina lied about her participation in food challenges, but eventually apologized to her.
