Popular YouTuber, model, and music artist Erika Costell has finally opened up about her weight loss, which saw criticism and concern alike throughout her fanbase.

Costell addressed the issue in a vlog on January 28, claiming that she is not suffering from an eating disorder and is not taking any special “diet pills” or supplements to help her lose weight.

Instead, Costell attributed her recent weight loss to stress and anxiety from the past few months – likely in reference to her breakup with controversial YouTuber Jake Paul in early November of 2018.

“Being completely honest, I’ve been going through a lot of changes that have caused me a lot of anxiety and stress the past couple of months,” Costell explained. “This is not abnormal for my body whatsoever.”

Costell went on to state that her weight often fluctuates often depending on her anxiety levels, which she admitted have been fairly high as of late.

“I will say, my anxiety the past few months is the worst it’s ever, ever been,” she continued. “That is the truth behind my weight loss.”

Costell’s weight was previously addressed by Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem, who compared the model to YouTuber Eugenia Cooney (who is widely speculated to suffer from bulimia or anorexia).

Despite their current beef, Paul defended Costell against KEEM’s comments, calling the host a “piece of trash” for insinuating that Costell suffered from an eating disorder – as well as calling Costell “gorgeous” despite their breakup.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
