Popular YouTuber Lilly Singh caught major flak after pointing out the disparity between male and female creators on Forbe’s list of Top 10 highest-earning YouTubers. Now, KEEMSTAR has weighed in on the issue – and his comments pulled no punches.

Forbe’s list of highest-earning creators went live on December 3, featuring such names as Mark ‘Markiplier’ Fischbach, Logan Paul, and even child star RyanToysReview.

However, Lilly Singh took issue with Forbe’s list, noting that there was not a single female creator featured in their lineup.

“Two years ago, it was almost even between male and female, last year it was just me, and this year there are no females at all,” Singh wrote. “…I’m concerned the digital space is going to repeat the mistakes of ancient industries. Hope I’m wrong.”

While Singh has seen criticism from personalities across the internet due to this Tweet, Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem went in on the YouTuber in a savage segment during his show – even openly laughing at her comments on the matter.

“This came across as Lilly Singh using sexism because she wasn’t on the list!” KEEMSTAR said of the debacle in a video on December 10.

He went on to suggest that Sing’s Tweets were an attempt to revive her channel, rather than a statement about sexism. “…your career is kind of in a decline,” KEEM continued. “You can’t be on top forever. But try not to blame everyone and everything for these issues.”

Singh likewise caught flak from YouTube’s top creator, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg, who went so far as to call her an “idiot” and a “crybaby” due to her Tweets on the matter.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
