YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star announced his split with ex-boyfriend Nathan Schwandt in early 2020, but some fans aren’t happy with the fallout and have taken matters into their own hands.

After a brief period of speculation, Star cleared up rumors that he and Schwandt had parted ways, admitting that they’d broken up in a mutual split and still had love for each other.

However, this sentiment seems to have changed, with Star later revealing “dark” drama going on behind the scenes of their breakup that he claimed he was afraid to speak out on due to potential legal ramifications.

YouTuber Jeffree Star revealed “dark” drama behind his recent split with ex-boyfriend Nathan Schwandt after initially opening up about their split earlier this year.

With this new information in mind, fans have been shading Schwandt across social media – but one critic has taken their vitriol to the next level.

In early April, fans took notice of an Instagram account that appeared to be a secondary profile for Schwandt, which boasted the same profile picture and bio as his original account.

Fans have taken notice of an Instagram account apparently posing as Nathan Schwandt.

The new account posted several photos of the former internet star via their stories, seeming to impersonate Schwandt in apparent retaliation for the alleged drama behind his parting with Star.

That’s not all. The phony profile even leaked a few sensitive pictures of Nathan, with one post boasting the caption: “Let me know if I should get my adult career film going.”

They also posted a few older photos of Star to their stories, captioned, “Missing him,” further fanning the flames of speculation that Schwandt may have started a burner account to burn off some steam.

The fake account posing as Schwandt even included photos of Jeffree Star, making an attempt at fooling others into thinking he isn’t over the breakup.

Despite this possibility, the account has since been revealed to be a fake, and some have taken the real Schwandt’s ensuing photo flipping off the camera as a potential reaction to the skeezy impersonator.

Yet, both he and Star have yet to officially react to the false profile, which has yet to post any photos to its feed at the time of writing.

Star and Nate’s breakup aside, this latest development goes to show that it’s never okay to impersonate someone online nor leak sensitive photos of that person, no matter what the case may be — especially in regards to a split that Star is has expressed he’s keen on keeping private.

Mr Beast giving $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him the hardest

In another wacky challenge, YouTuber Mr Beast has announced he will award $10,000 to whoever can ‘ratio’ him, or get the most likes in comparison to his tweet, with fandoms battling it out to have their fave crowned the winner.

Jimmy Donaldson a.k.a Mr Beast is well known for his grand scale challenges. And with 45 million subscribers on YouTube, he certainly has the means to facilitate them, often partnering up with his huge audience to make great things happen.

On the charitable front, one of Mr Beast’s most ambitious projects was ‘Team Trees,’ where he endeavored to raise the money required to plant 20,000,000 trees. He definitely succeeded, with over 500,000 unique users donating to the campaign.

Instagram: MrBeastMrBeast and his crew of over 600 YouTubers has raised over $20 million for Team Trees.

Among the philanthropy, Donaldson also previously set out to break some online records just for the fun of it. He set out to beat PewDiePie and have one of his videos become the most liked non-music video on YouTube. The video currently has a whopping 15 million likes.

With that in mind, he set his Twitter followers the task of ‘ratio-ing’ his original tweet. To ‘ratio’ someone means either for the number of comments to far outweigh the likes (usually when something is controversial,) or in this case to far outweigh the likes of the original tweet. Essentially, you have to get more likes than Mr Beast himself.

Originally, it looked like popular YouTuber Corpse Husband was going to win the money thanks to his reply tweet of a simple smiley face. Alongside the rise of Among Us, Corpse has experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent months, and said that he would be donating 100% of the money if won to charity.

However, just as it was looking as if Corpse would be sailing to victory unrivalled, a tweet from a BTS fan’s account saying “I know this is impossible but, If ever I win the funds will be directly donated to Funds for Bangtan and BorahaeFunds” began to pick up traction.

Their victory might not be as impossible as they first thought, with dedicated fans around the globe heading in droves to boost the tweet.

Mr Beast even joked “Hey Kpop fans, you about to let Minecraft youtubers show you up like this? Are they the new biggest fan base?”

At the time of writing, Mr Beast’s original tweet has 200,000 likes, Corpse Husband’s 233,000 likes, and BTS_History613’s tweet at 239,000. But with the numbers changing rapidly by the second, who the ultimate winner will be is yet unclear.
