After the ‘Hate Dies, Love Arrives’ show hosted by FouseyTUBE was cut short due to a bomb scare, KEEMSTAR has addressed accusations that he attempted to profit from the ‘disaster’ by making a documentary.

YouTuber FouseyTUBE had sold out tickets for his live show, but the event was cancelled after a bomb threat was reported, forcing around 1,500 people to evacuate the venue.

Fellow YouTuber and host of ‘Drama Alert’, Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem was one of the attendees, and was making what he calls a ‘documentary’, which FouseyTUBE had approved of and was apparently ‘excited’ about it.

But, once things went south, a large contingent of FouseyTUBE fans began to level accusations at KEEMSTAR, suggesting not only that he was attempting to profit from the disaster, but that he ‘wanted it to fail’.

KEEMSTAR quickly responded to these fans, assuring them that while yes he was there to work and make a documentary, he never wished the event to fail, despite believing that it would.

Admittedly, the documentary does not sound like it will paint FouseyTUBE in the best light, as it’s working title is ‘FouseyCon – July 16 – 17 – You Lie 18th’, but KEEMSTAR says the purpose of the documentary is to show reality.

“If FouseyTUBE’s event was a giant success, then the documentary would capture that – ‘FouseyTUBE’s back’.

But, if FouseyTUBE was lying and manipulating, and his event was just a complete fail, then the documentary is going to show that. Regardless, that’s the whole point of news, the whole point of a documentary.”

He also went on to say that he was not the only YouTuber filming and documenting the event, and reaffirmed that FouseyTUBE was happy for him to produce the documentary, reportedly saying “I love it”.

KEEMSTAR has now released the trailer for the documentary on the Drama Alert channel, which shows snippets of what to expect from the cancelled event, with commentary from other popular YouTubers.

Thomas Petrou slams Bryce Hall’s accusations of stealing from Hype House

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
