H3H3 responds after claims he tried to “delete” Leafy’s YouTube channel

YouTube star and H3H3 comedy duo member Ethan Klein has responded to allegations from longtime YouTuber Leafy of making attempts to delete his channel on the site.

Following Klein’s viral feud with fellow YouTuber KEEMSTAR, the H3H3 member is now facing allegations from Leafy, who accused him of making attempts to suppress and even delete his channel from the platform.

In a series of tweets on June 4, Leafy alleged that his channel had been copystriked twice, with one of the strikes coming from Klein due to purported “harassment” against a video he’d made that was critical of the H3H3 duo.

“I believe H3H3 is trying to get my channel deleted,” Leafy wrote. “Had to private all my videos, just got two channel strikes today for ‘harassment’ on my new videos. Another strike and my channel gets deleted.”

Klein was quick to dispute Leafy’s claims, retweeting his original post with the caption, “And nothing of value was lost.”

He went on to elaborate his point, explaining that he’d never reported Leafy’s videos as the YouTuber so claimed.

“I had nothing to do with it,” he refuted. “I never reported his videos and its very bizarre that he thinks I wield some godlike power to remove his videos. But no. Not me, sorry.”

Klein then exposed alleged messages from a friend of Leafy, who asked the YouTuber for help in saving Leafy’s channel, stating it was “one strike away from termination.”

“Meanwhile, his friends are begging me to help poor Leafy,” Klein wrote of the exchange. “Bash me publicly and beg me privately.”

Leafy seemed to react to Klein’s statements with a photo of the star and his wife posing with YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, captioned, “Here’s the deal, I want Leafy dead, clean shot.”

Thus far, nothing else has come from their spat — just the latest in a series of dramatic developments involving both content creators, with Klein having come under fire for appearing to target KEEMSTAR’s sponsor over their feud in May.

For now, all fans can do is watch and wait as the fate of Leafy’s channel is determined.


Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
