Popular YouTuber ‘CallMeCarson’ dropped in on ex-girlfriend ‘Katerino’s’ live conversation with Twitch’s resident psychiatrist ‘Dr. K,’ donating a massive amount to his broadcast with a jaw-dropping message.

For those unaware of the ongoing drama, CallMeCarson shocked fans by taking an unexpected hiatus from social media in March, citing his mental health as part of the reason for stepping back from content creation.

A month later, Carson appeared to confirm rumors that his girlfriend, fellow entertainer Katerino, had cheated on him — allegations that she later admitted to in a short video on YouTube.

Following this news, it was revealed that Katerino had supposedly been involved with multiple content creators at once, leading to mass backlash against her despite Carson’s attempt at dissolving a “witch hunt.”

A month later, Twitch streamer and psychiatrist Alok ‘Dr. K’ Kanojia announced that he would be featuring Katerino for a broadcasted conversation, a common occurrence on his channel and a huge draw for fans.

During their session on Monday, May 25, the unthinkable occurred; CallMeCarson made an appearance via donation, dropping an eye-popping $10k to Dr. K with a simple, yet scathing message: “Thank you for helping her.”

Dr. K visibly took note of the donation, but said nothing as Katerino summed up her time on his stream, while the chat went wild with various reactions.

“It’s fine, they can do whatever,” Katerino remarked after Dr. K brought up the fact that she didn’t want viewers to either hate her or sympathize with her. “You know? They got a mind of their own. They’re just chillin’.”

After ending the session, Dr. K finally reacted to Carson’s donation, openly awed at the massive amount Carson had donated.

That’s not all; Carson also reportedly donated subs to both Katerino and former friend ‘Fitz’s’ Twitch channels, spurring backlash against the YouTuber for his surprising act of kindness in wake of drama that completely upended his life for the better part of two months.

While this isn’t the first time he has reacted to the drama, it marks a massive statement from a content creator known for his genuine nature, despite having been wronged.

Rust

xQc hits back at claims he only plays Rust for the viewers

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel hit back at claims that the Rust phase on his stream is over, and that he only plays the multiplayer survival game for a hearty boost in viewers.

In the last few weeks, Twitch has been dominated by streamers either roleplaying or PVP’ing in Rust. The multiplayer game, which has been around since 2013, has even eclipsed 1.5 million total viewers at certain points, mainly in part thanks to the OfflineTV servers. 

Former Overwatch pro xQc has, alongside Shroud, dominated the viewer totals for Rust, and can regularly be found at the top of the charts whenever he is playing the Facepunch Studios title.

However, during his January 15 stream, the Luminosity Gaming streamer decided against playing Rust for the first time in a few days, leading some cynical fans to ask if the Rust phase on Twitch had come to an end. 

xQc has been at the heart of nearly every slice of Rust drama since December.

When he was accused, himself of giving up on the Rust ‘hype’, seeing as he wasn’t playing, xQc quickly jibed back that, at the end of the day, he is a variety streamer and can play whatever he wants. 

“Rust hype is over? Nah, I’m just chilling dude,” xQc responded after a few messages joked about him coming to the end with the multiplayer survival game. 

“I’m just playing whatever game. I don’t know why you laugh that a phase would be over. Like, who cares about a phase or hype? I play games whenever they feel good to me and I’m enjoying them.”

He kicked things up a notch though a few moments later, pointing out that he was playing Rust before the game exploded on Twitch. “I played Rust, literally, like three days before the Rust phase even begun. I talked about making a server before any of this even happened,” xQc added.

“People said, oh you’re playing Rust for the viewers, and even when there was less before, I still played it, so then what? What’s your argument?”

It’s not like his last Rust stream came to a catastrophic end, and saw the Candian delete the game from his PC either. He simply jumped off in favor of playing Balloons Tower Defense to end the stream in a chill manner.

He’ll likely return to Rust whenever he is in the mood to do so, and not because some viewers are imploring him to jump back on the RP hype train.
