JayStation under fire for Ouija board challenge on ‘dead’ girlfriend

YouTuber JayStation claims his girlfriend Alexia died earlier in the month and his latest video is him ‘communicating’ with her with a Ouija board.

On January 22, JayStation uploaded an emotional video where he claimed his girlfriend was lost to a drunk driver.

However just the next day, a video was uploaded that featured her extensively, but the YouTuber says they had five videos ready for upload in the wake of her apparent death.

Almost immediately, many fans doubted his girlfriend was actually gone, with YouTuber OrdinaryGamers going as far as contacting local police departments to find out more information about her death, only to come back fruitless.

H3H3’s Ethan Klein joined in on the criticism, calling JayStation a “scumbag” and saying he’s only doing all of this just to get a higher subscriber count. Perhaps doubling down on the controversy, in a January 26 video, he claims he spoke to his deceased girlfriend with a Ouija board at 3 a.m.

He has been criticized for videos like this in the past, such as when he claims he was able to speak to rapper Mac Miller after he passed with this same method.

The 23:30 minute video is sitting at over 35,000 likes at the time of this writing, compared to 6,900 dislikes. That ratio might be surprising to viewers, considering the comments on the video itself appear to be overwhelmingly negative so far.

In the video, the YouTuber asks Alexia a series of questions where the answers are then spelled on the board, supposedly by her from the afterlife.

He concludes the questions once she says she misses him and when he gets up, he and his cameraman notice he has lipstick on his cheek, which would indicate his girlfriend gave him one last kiss goodbye.

Outside of YouTube likes and dislikes, the community has been very critical of his latest video.

If this is actually a hoax and his girlfriend is alive and well, there will almost certainly be a lot more backlash considering how much he has leaned into the whole situation.

For the time being, JayStation claims that his girlfriend is no longer with us, and that this was his final goodbye to her.


Thomas Petrou reveals Hype House could be moving again

Hype House co-founder Thomas Petrou has hinted that the content collective could be moving to a new location, once again, after multiple instances of their address leaking online.

The Hype House is one of TikTok’s most popular groups, comprised of several high-profile content creators who live under a single roof to make the most out of their videos and social media posts.

However, being internet-famous is no cakewalk, as overly enthusiastic fans have leaked their address multiple times online, resulting in a crowd of viewers clogging their driveway and generally disturbing the peace of their neighborhood.

Thus, the Hype House — alongside rival group the Sway House — have had to pack up and move quite a few times, but it doesn’t look like their moving days are over just yet.

In an October 27 vlog, Thomas Petrou revealed that he and his Hype House homies are looking for a new home, although they haven’t exactly nailed down a solid location at the moment.

“We’re looking into moving,” Thomas said in the vlog. “Not necessarily right this second, but we’re looking at properties today.”

Although the group found one home that several of them liked (the roof of which Thomas unfortunately showed off during the video), it doesn’t seem like things are set in stone, giving the group some wiggle room if they find a more suitable abode in the interim.

It makes sense that the House would want to move; in a series of Instagram posts in July, Petrou revealed that over 100 visitors would visit their home per day, making for a fairly chaotic living situation for just about everyone involved.

As previously mentioned, the Hype House aren’t the only ones facing such troubles. Even the Sway House and YouTuber David Dobrik have dealt with major invasions of privacy as of late, with strangers showing up to his doorstep and leaving their animals at his front gate.

While it’s definitely cool to meet your favorite internet stars, it’s important to remember that they are people, too, who are deserving of their own personal privacy — no matter how many followers they have on social media.
