Popular YouTubers Austin and Catherine McBroom have responded to criticism after fans were disturbed by a clip of a fight in an ACE family video.

The ACE Family is comprised of five members, with the newest being parents Austin McBroom and Catherine Paiz’s infant son, Steel. The Family also boasts two daughters, Alaïa and Elle, the latter of which has become the center of the YouTubers’ latest controversy.

In a clip the family posted to YouTube, Austin is seen briefly shouting at Catherine and swearing as they try to film a segment of them greeting their followers. Many fans think that the clip was left in the uploaded video as a mistake and it has left fans concerned about the dynamic between the couple.

While the video was quickly deleted, it was already recorded and uploaded elsewhere online where fans revealed their concerns. One person wrote, “She looks like she’s about to cry.” Another person said they thought it was evidence of an “unhealthy relationship.”

Austin and Catherine McBroom have now responded to the criticism on Twitter. Catherine wrote, “yes Austin and I get frustrated with each other sometimes, it’s called marriage. I wish people would stop expecting people to have a ‘perfect’ life, it’s just not realistic!”

Austin added, “No relationship is perfect, but the love Catherine and I have for each other makes up for the small imperfections.”

Some fans were not convinced, replying to the tweet, expressing that they thought the clip looked “manipulative.” Others were grateful to the pair for their honesty, with one person responding, “I love how realistic you two are, you’ve never put on a show about your life. You’ve always been 100% real with everyone. That’s one of the reasons why I love you guys so much.”

The ACE family are no strangers to controversy. In June, they came under fire after a video surfaced that showed Austin spanking his four-year-old daughter while making inappropriate comments.


Twitch streamer loses it after ruining rare expensive Pokemon card

Twitch streamer Wesbtw was left fuming after he managed to pack a $200 Pikachu card but had to ruin it because a viewer had paid for the pack to be bent before opening. 

In recent months, classic Pokemon cards have become all the rage again. Collectors from all over have been benefiting as people are spending absurd amounts to chase the holy grail cards.

Some have the pockets to just go direct and purchase an incredible card for an insane price, while others are chasing that rush of opening packs in the hopes of getting something incredible that might be worth a life-changing amount. Though, not everyone can pack a PSA 10 Chirozard or Blastoise and make thousands.

Instead, some collectors have to settle for a smaller amount. However, in the case of Twitch streamer Wesbtw, that profit was completely taken away because of a donation from a viewer.

The booster box from 1999 is now worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The streamer, who has over 29,000 followers on Twitch, had a donation incentive in place where, if a viewer donated $50, he would bend the pack before revealing its contents. 

A viewer decided to take him up on that offer nearly three hours into his stream as he opened a Pokemon Sword and Shield Vivid Voltage pack. Wesbtw was pained to see the result of the bend, but it only got worse as he revealed his last card – a rare rainbow-themed VMax version of Pikachu.

He threw the card on the desk before putting his head in his hands and slumping in his card – resulting in the streamer sliding onto his floor. “Oh my God, it actually f**king happened,” Wesbtw called out, lamenting his luck at bending the card. 

For anyone out of the loop on the newer Pokemon cards, the one that the streamer is worth around $250, so he was set to make a nice chunk of change. However, the damage tanks the value somewhat. 

Even a round of 50 gifted subs to his channel couldn’t brighten the streamers mood, as he lamented his bad luck at bending, and ruining, such an expensive card.
