ACE Family responds to backlash with surprising new docuseries

Popular YouTubers known as the ACE Family are releasing a documentary series about their experience as internet moguls – and their lives aren’t as happy as their vlogs might lead fans to believe.

The family dropped a trailer for the documentary on January 31, which appears to cover both the good and bad aspects of being a super popular YouTube group.

One selection from the trailer detailed an interaction between ACE family patriarch Austin McBroom and a possible thief, while other clips from the ad dealt with similar issues of safety and invasions of personal privacy due to their large fanbase (the group currently boasts over 15 million subscribers).

The four-part series is set to debut on February 23rd, 2019.

This docuseries could mark a response to widespread backlash the family received in early January, after a controversial SnapChat video surfaced of McBroom buying a toddler (reportedly related to a family member of wife Catherine Paiz) a phallic lollipop from a Spencer’s outlet.

In the video, McBroom explained that the child would have stolen the lollipop if he hadn’t bought it for her – but his explanation didn’t sit well with critics.

The family likewise came under fire later in January, after announcing that they would take a break from YouTube to upload content on their mobile app.

Fans widely decried this move, noting that regular viewers would have to pay in order to watch their videos on the app rather than watching for free through YouTube.

While the family has yet to speak out about either controversy, their docuseries could provide a statement on the issues in question. For now, fans and critics alike will have to wait until the end of February for a possible answer.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
