Popular YouTube star Ian ‘iDubbbz’ Carter uploaded a video on March 28 where he responded to backlash from fans calling him a “simp” over his girlfriend, Anisa Jomha, and her recent decision to share private content.

iDubbbz became a household name on YouTube with his popular Content Cop series which launched in 2015. The segment called out creators on the platform for their poor contributions to the community and their unsavory behavior.

However the entertainer received backlash of his own in March after fans began to make memes about him being a “simp” over his girlfriend selling private photos. On March 28, he uploaded a video hitting back at critics taking things too personally.

Memes about the YouTuber first sparked up when his girlfriend Anisa Jomha revealed on Twitter on March 9 that she was making an account to sell private content through a subscription service.

iDubbbz got in on the joke and tweeted a photo on March 15 of him frowning with the caption “IM DONE, F**KERS! IM DONE. NO MORE MR. NICE-SIMP!”

However, while seemingly okay with the simp meme, the YouTube star took issue with other viewers who felt “betrayed” and responded to them on March 28 as a part of his ‘iDubbbz Complains’ series.

The entertainer opened up by stating, “A good amount of people are just doing the reasonable thing, and just making jokes and laughing about it. But there is a whole other group of people who feel personally devastated and betrayed.”

He then hit out at fans that are disappointed in him for his stance on his girlfriend’s work. “I’m not your f**king dad. Like if you don’t want to look up to me anymore, that’s fine. I don’t want you to look up to me.”

The YouTuber then told fans who were upset to find someone else to idolize. “I’m okay with s*x workers. It has no bearing on my life whatsoever. I love my girlfriend, and I’m totally fine with it. It doesn’t affect me. If you are upset by me admitting this, then I suggest you go idolizing someone else.”

While the YouTube creator seems to be okay with those making jokes, his issue appears to be more with those who feel personally upset with his opinion.

His response began trending on Twitter, as the video sparked a discussion. If nothing else, this shows the complicated side of being an online personality and maintaining a relationship in the public eye.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
