CallMeCarson finally returned to YouTube with a new upload on April 23 after a near six week break from the platform amid a cheating controversy.

The popular YouTuber — who boasts over 2.7 million subscribers on his primary account — announced on March 12 he would be taking an “indefinite break.” Initially citing mental health as the reason behind his extended leave, the YouTuber later confirmed a cheating scandal was behind his stint away from the platform.

His partner at the time, Katerino, had seemingly cheated on him with fellow YouTuber Fitz. It was later revealed in an April 14 video she had indeed “led him on.” After another brief period of silence amidst the scandal, Carson finally ended his hiatus and returned to YouTube with a brand new upload.

While it may not be an entirely new video, Carson’s April 23 upload began with new footage of the YouTuber as he introduced a feature-length compilation.

“It’s okay, I’m back,” he said while emerging from under his desk to start the new video. “I hope nothing bad happened while I was gone.”

“I was originally going to put up a best of 2019 video but then the last few months happened,” he explained, leading to the creation of a longer video that included highlights from 2020 as well.

The two-hour compilation featured some of his most memorable gaming moments, hilarious Discord highlights, and various IRL skits as well.

There’s no telling exactly when the popular personality might get back into a regular schedule on the platform once again, but he did tease more content was on the way.

“Don’t worry, there’s going to be more videos this year, I just wanted to put up a ‘best of’ compilation of the stuff that I think is funny,” he explained.

Some of the memories in focus throughout the video clearly played a huge role throughout the YouTuber’s growth and still hold an important place in his heart. You can take the trip down memory lane and check out the full video for yourself.

It could still be a while before CallMeCarson is uploading on a more regular basis, but the YouTuber assured that new content will absolutely be pushed out this year.

TikToker claims David Dobrik stole his designs for Dispo app

A popular TikToker is claiming that he came up with the design rebrand for YouTube Star David Dobrik’s ‘Dispo’ photo app, and even met with the influencer before seeing his ideas used in the final product.

Dobrik’s ‘Disposable’ app came out in December 2019, and was recently rebranded as ‘Dispo,’ a photo-sharing social media app with a retro spin on your regular Instagram clone.

Instead of being able to see and edit your pictures instantly, you have to wait until 9 AM the next day for them to “develop,” and can’t touch them up beforehand – much like a disposable film camera, hence the name.

Despite the creative idea, Dobrik is coming under fire from those who think he stole some of the designs for his Dispo rebrand from TikToker ‘karimxismail,’ based on a series of TikToks posted before the app came out.

Back on Sept. 18, Ismail posted what was basically a five-part video application attempting to get the attention of Dobrik to work on Dispo, a name he suggests during the above clip.

The YouTuber even commented on one of Ismail’s TikToks a day later on Sept. 19 calling his ideas “dope,” adding further credibility to his side of the story where he got completely cut out of the deal.

Neither mentioned the project again until news broke that Dispo had received a $4 million investment from Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian’s venture fund.

Shortly after that announcement, Karim posted two TikToks detailing his experience with Dobrik ahead of the brand’s reveal, claiming he met with the YouTuber and Natalie Mariduena, Dobrik’s assistant and business partner. According to him, both saw his ideas/designs and “loved them.”

But after a “brief correspondence,” Karim said that the team told him they were “going in a different direction.” He noted that Dobrik and his team did trademark the Dispo name six days after his initial video, but he doesn’t seem to be upset with David for potentially using his idea at all.

“They said they came up with it first,” Karim said about the Dispo name. “Whatever the names end up being, I know David would never take the features or designs I created. Now let me make it abundantly clear, I was a David Dobrik fan and I still am.”

As one would expect, some debate has broken out on social media between those who think the YouTuber shamelessly swiped the name and those who are adamant in defending Dobrik’s credibility.

However, Dobrik himself hasn’t commented on the issue at the time of writing, and as this scandal doesn’t seem likely to derail Dispo, we wouldn’t count on him saying anything at all.
