After some attempts to ‘cancel’ YouTuber JSchlatt social media over a now-deleted Tweet, fellow YouTuber and friend CallMeCarson weighed in, with a tongue-in-cheek joke about the situation.
On December 1, Jschlatt tweeted “I’m rich and white. why the f**k do you think I’m on hood twitter LMAO.” Some took this as an implication that “hood twitter” referred to black people on Twitter, but Jschlatt was quick to shut this down.
When another user responded asking “so we are hood because we are black?”, Schlatt replied “you are reading too far into it.”
NAHHH YOURE READING TOO FAR INTO IT

However, despite deleting the Tweet, screenshots began doing the rounds on Twitter, as some accused Schlatt of being racist, or making a racist joke.
“People need to start holding jschlatt accountable for the things he says and does,” one viral Tweet said. “I don’t care if he’s funny or it’s “just a character”, this sh*t is disrespectful and not funny.”

“He constantly & blatantly disrespects people because of “humor” and he gets away with it nearly every time,” the post continued. “This tweet is just gross and other things he has said noticeably are ignored by many people.”
Although Jschlatt hasn’t responded, CallMeCarson made light of the situation with a troll Twitlonger post.
Titled ‘My problems with Jschlatt’, Carson’s Twitlonger is simply a comical ‘copy pasta’ about a fake story at a grocery store.
Other fans used it as an opportunity to dismiss the mock to “cancel” Jschlatt over his Tweet, with sarcastic replies about how terrible he is.
