YouTuber Ethan Klein has responded to Trisha Paytas revealing they’ll be going on Keemstar’s podcast, ‘Mom’s Basement,’ saying the situation “just really makes [him] sad.”

Ethan Klein and Trisha Paytas once co-hosted the immensely popular podcast Frenemies, where they discussed drama and played games for their millions of viewers. The show came to an end in June, however, after an argument about profit splitting lead to Trisha leaving the show for good.

Since then, Trisha has gone on to talk about drama in a series on their own YouTube channel called ‘Enemies.’ In an August 5 episode, they criticized YouTuber Keemstar for dating someone almost 20 years younger than him.

On August 11, Keemstar sent Trisha a video via Twitter in which he said “we have a lot to discuss,” asking them to reach out.

Ethan also called the YouTuber out, and went on to reveal that they’d received a week-long suspension, claiming Keemstar was talking with YouTube about it behind the scenes.


Ethan and Keemstar have feuded in the past, and he went on to claim that the drama YouTuber “harassed” him and his wife “for a whole summer.”

Then on August 15, it was revealed that Trisha was going to be on an episode of Keemstar’s podcast ‘Mom’s Basement,’ with a picture of them all in the studio immediately getting shared across Twitter.

Ethan responded by saying: “I’m not even gonna front or try to be funny, this just really makes me sad.”


Trisha weighed in on the backlash in multiple tweets, and said they believe “in discussion, debate, and trying to change ppls minds.” They claim they “defended Ethan on this pod in many ways.” The YouTuber also slammed Ethan’s mom after she called them out on social media.

The response to the picture of Trisha in the Mom’s Basement studio has so far been largely negative, and with the episode yet to air, there could be more drama to come.
