YouTube star Jake Paul and Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem set Twitter ablaze with a heated back and forth on January 15.

KEEMSTAR is no stranger to controversy on social media as his YouTube channel is dedicated to all things drama and never shies away from conflict.

It seems like he wasn’t at all prepared for the latest batch of controversy, however, after he Tweeted a picture of Jake Paul’s ex-girlfriend Erika Costell with the caption “Eugenia Cooney 2019” that seemingly rubbed Paul the wrong way.

Hours after KEEMSTAR posted the photo, Paul replied with a heated response in which he calls out KEEMSTAR for body shaming Costell and calls him a “piece of trash.”

Eugenia Cooney is another YouTuber who is known for being incredibly thin, reportedly weighing well under 100 pounds.

Paul seemingly believed KEEMSTAR’s Tweet to be poking fun at the fact that Costell looks skinny in the chosen picture, leading to the above Tweet as well as a number of follow-up Tweets.

Not content to let Paul have the last word, KEEMSTAR responded by asking whether Paul thought there was something wrong with how Cooney looks.

Paul offered no response to KEEMSTAR’s final word on the matter, seemingly opting to move on from the ordeal completely.

To her credit, Costell seemed to take the entire incident in stride, responding to KEEMSTAR’s initial Tweet in jest.

While this spat looks to be over, for now, Paul will likely turn right back to his ongoing rivalry with fellow YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le.

The pair most recently traded shots back and forth over the weekend during a charity basketball event hosted by the ACE Family, who are no stranger to controversy themselves.

Dr Disrespect responds to backlash after roasting mobile gaming

Legendary streamer Dr Disrespect responded to all the backlash he received after comparing his monstrous gaming setup to that of a mobile gamer’s.

On November 26, the Two-Time made waves on Twitter after he described his $200,000 multi-PC setup and sarcastically asked how people can take mobile gaming seriously.

Now, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion responded to everyone who was upset with him claiming mobile gaming wasn’t a serious thing.

In a comedic skit, Doc pretended to play a game on an old flip phone and was clearly struggling.

“Come on, peak. Oh, I would have killed you if I had a better connection. That’s bullsh*t,” he acted before realizing the camera was rolling, causing him to slowly flip his phone shut. “How long have we been live?”

While this opening segment was played for jokes, the theme carried on with Doc talking to ZLaner about the backlash he was receiving.

“I’m getting a lot of heat these days on Twitter. I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup,” he said. “I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”

To this, ZLaner inquired about what exactly Doc had said and if he was implying that mobile gaming was a “laughing joke.”

“Again, I just explained what my setup was,” he doubled down. “And then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, it was just a question.”

Furthermore, when 100 Thieves star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter tried to get Doc to participate in a big Among Us stream, he declined, saying it “looks worse than a mobile game.”

While the YouTube streamer may be downplaying his remarks a touch, phrasing them as “just a question,” it didn’t stop some prominent voices from speaking up.

As Dexerto reported, things reached a boiling point when CoD Mobile player Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie challenged Doc to a $100,000 1v1.

Dr Disrespect has been seeing success on YouTube.

This wasn’t the only challenge issued either with Elijah ‘Hawksnest’ Jackson offering a $10,000 wager against the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect didn’t respond to either of the two challenges issued. Either way, it seems like this feud with the mobile gaming community is far from over.
