TikTok star Abby Rao has slammed ex-boyfriend RiceGum for posting a video with his “new crush” to their joint YouTube channel – and RiceGum shared audio of their phone call for his viewers to hear.

At the start of 2019, the pair started to frequently appear together and it became clear that they were a couple. They then broke up towards the tail end of the year and the relationship since has been very up and down.

Now, though, it’s not looking great, as RiceGum has shown footage of him taking a phone call from Abby after he uploaded a new video to their joint channel – and she wasn’t happy with it.

Rao clearly isn’t happy with what Rice is doing.

RiceGum, real name Brian Le, and Rao share a YouTube channel called FamilyGum, where they used to upload videos together throughout their relationship.

Obviously, with their breakup, the channel became obsolete – until RiceGum decided to upload a new video titled “We Broke Up So I’m Meeting My New Crush” on July 11, with a new girl that obviously wasn’t Abby.

Naturally, Abby wasn’t impressed, and she called Rice after the upload to let him know that she didn’t appreciate it. What she probably didn’t expect, though, was that RiceGum would film the call and put it in his next YouTube upload.

“Bryan, what are you doing?” She asked when he finally answered her call. “Did you really f**king upload a video with that girl on FamilyGum? What is wrong with you?”

After laughing at the ordeal and clearly not being sure how to respond, Le hangs up on Rao and leaves it at that.

In the video, Rice also says that he doesn’t think he did anything wrong and that he didn’t really have anything to say to Abby, and that she regularly “blows him up” with calls but he never responds.

Needless to say, Abby isn’t impressed with RiceGum’s actions, but it doesn’t look like he’s apologizing any time soon.

Californian YouTube Among Us sensation Corpse Husband has apparently appeared out of nowhere, but who exactly is he?

It’s safe to say that every gamer, non-gamer and Youtube fanatic knows about Among Us, the newest party game that sees players attempt to decipher who the impostor is before they brutally murder all of their comrades and win the game.

Thousands of streamers have jumped on the Among Us bandwagon, with names like xQc, Valkyre and Trainwrecks dominating the Among Us Charts. The game has even attracted political figures, namely American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez who used the game as a platform to reach out to the gaming youth of today.

On YouTube, however, the Among Us scene rests firmly within the grasp of Corpse Husband (or Corpse, who has become an overnight Among Us sensation. Despite his synonymity with the game though, Corpse has a long and varied streaming past despite only being the tender age of 23.

The underground YouTube star has become an Among Us sensation.

From YouTube spook to Among Us fame

Corpse’s Youtube career began in the dark realms of horror story narration. Citing online CreepyPasta narration channels such as Mr.Nightmare, Be.Buster and Lazy Masquerade as inspiration, Corpse created his own iteration of a horror narration channel, with his distinctive deep voice adding to the spookiness of his videos. This mystery was only amplified by Corpse’s decision to hide his face in the online sphere.

While Corpse’s YouTube still provides every horror fan with a video playground, his most recent Among Us videos have racked up millions of views, blowing his creepier videos out of the YouTube waters in terms of views.

Focusing on how to win the game as the impostor – even if you have admitted you are the impostor – the three current Among Us videos on his channel have earned him a total of 26.5 million views. That’s hardly a number to smirk at.

Being the impostor in Among Us certainly requires the gift of a silver tongue, something that Corpse clearly possesses. It’ll be interesting to see whether his popularity fades as the game slips out of the mainstream media, but judging by his views that doesn’t seem too likely. After all, if you’re not watching him for Among Us right now is the perfect time of year to sit back, relax and be terrified.
