Rising content creator Corpse Husband has opened up on why he’s hesitant to do a face reveal, after exploding in popularity on YouTube with his music and Among Us collaborations.

With Among Us continuing to take over sites like Twitch and YouTube, many of the biggest personalities in gaming have flocked to the party game for some back-stabbing fun.

While different creators have seen a rise in viewership on the game, Corpse Husband, a music artist and YouTuber, has taken the game by storm after leaving the likes of AOC, PewDiePie, and more stunned with the sound of his voice.

From the collaborations, Corpse Husband has taken off to a new level, becoming one of the fastest-growing YouTubers on the platform. After picking up over 2.4 million new subscribers in October alone, he is currently sitting at 4.1 million subscribers, all without ever showing his face on camera.

However, the star’s meteoric rise has not come without its downsides, and Corpse recently reflected on his success and the pressure that has been surrounding him in recent months.

The YouTuber revealed on November 4, that he would love to talk with other stars that have been in his position and how they dealt with the rapid change in fame, calling out to the likes of young superstar Billie Eilish.

“I would love to have a conversation with Billie Eilish or something about how the f*** she coped with coming up so quick, because this shit is hell behind the scenes,” he explained.“So much wild s*** goes on.”

He also added that the extra pressure of having his physical appearance revealed to the world would be unimaginable to him during the ongoing adjustment to his newly-found fame.

“I can’t imagine my physical appearance being out there on top of that, sounds crazy,” he simply explained.

While a face reveal does not appear to be on the cards for Corpse Husband anytime soon, fans will just have to wait and see if he chooses to do so down the line.

FaZe Clan’s Nate Hill swatted while streaming Fortnite on Twitch

FaZe Clan Fortnite pro Nate Hill’s most recent Twitch stream was cut short as he became just the latest streamer to get swatted while live. Comforting concerned fans, he has since confirmed that the incident was resolved safely.

While it’s existed for years, it feels like “swatting” has become much more prevalent over the past year or so as large names in the gaming community get exposed to the malicious behavior that involves subjecting a victim to a surprise visit from a concerned police force.

In essence, swatting is when someone misleads emergency services in order to send as heavily armed and numbered a police force as possible to a victim’s home. An evolution of bomb threat hoaxes, callers aim to endanger their targets by getting a SWAT team sent to their home.

In the third high-profile swatting attack in three months, Hill’s stream was cut short as a roommate told him that he needed to exit his room because the police had arrived. While the moment was shocking, to say the least, he has since updated fans with confirmation of safety and a scathing remark for the caller.

As seen in the clip, Hill is surprised by the intrusion and quickly leaves his stream to settle the situation. Fortunately, like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney in December and Phillip ‘ImperialHal’ Dosen in January, Hill’s swatting incident ended safely. 

This is a relieving update for fans to hear, as a 2017 Wichita, Kansas swatting incident led to the fatal shooting of an innocent person following a disagreement over Call of Duty: WWII. The caller in that incident, Tyler Barriss, was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.

Considering that context, it should be no surprise that fans are overjoyed to hear that Hill’s incident resolved safely. The replies to his tweet essentially evoke a communal sigh of relief.

In the tweet, Hill also offers a resounding moral to this story: “A lot of sick f**ks out there, be careful.”

With the difficulty in convicting swatters and the increased prevalence of the criminal behavior over the past few months, it’s clear that security should be a priority — particularly for high-profile streamers. Fans are surely happy that Hill is safe, but also hopeful that these recent string of swatters can be found and sentenced to jail time as a deterrent to others.
