The ACE Family is one of YouTube’s most popular family-oriented channels, but the group is receiving a slew of backlash after taking a short hiatus over the Christmas season.

Boasting over 17.8 million subscribers, the ACE Family is known for their wholesome, family friendly content, and annual charity basketball tournament, which features a slew of celebrities and top tier content creators.

However, both patriarch Austin McBroom and matriarch Catherine Paiz are coming under fire after deciding to spend their holiday away from the camera.

Austin McBroom, InstagramAustin McBroom is the ACE Family patriarch, boasting over 17.8 million subscribers on their main YouTube channel.

McBroom cleared the air on their sudden hiatus on December 23, claiming that both he and Paiz wanted to enjoy their Christmas celebration in private.

Despite this explanation, it seems that fans weren’t happy with this change in schedule, with some accusing the couple of going back on their promises.

These accusations appeared to strike a nerve in McBroom, who took to Twitter on December 28 to give his critics a verbal thrashing, even going so far as to ask them to unsubscribe if they are unhappy with the hiatus.

“For those of you getting upset because we haven’t posted in a few days, do us a favor and unsubscribe and stop watching our every move,” he wrote. “We know our loyal ACE Family members will understand that we need a lil’ break.”

McBroom went on to call those criticizing his break “ungrateful,” reiterating the grind of constantly creating content for an eager audience.

“Some of y’all are ungrateful for free content,” he continued. “Some of y’all should be charged every time you watch someone’s video. Idk why y’all think its just so easy to make videos everyday or every other day. If it was so easy everyone including yourself would be doing it.”

The ACE Family patriarch ended his spiel by assuring fans that he and Paiz will have “exciting news” upon their eventual return, although no hint has yet been given as to what this announcement might be.

Although the ACE Family is no stranger to controversy, it doesn’t look like McBroom is letting the the backlash get him down, promising to come back “stronger than ever” in wake of fan backlash.


Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
