Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem is never one to shy away from sharing his opinion, even when it seemingly comes out of the blue.

It seems as though no one is truly safe from KEEMSTAR’s aim these days, as he’s taken shots at Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and YouTube siblings Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji and Deji Olatunji in a 24-hour span.

Not content to let that be the extent of his callouts, however, KEEMSTAR also threw a bit of shade towards popular YouTuber Lilly Singh with a single Tweet on December 27.

After taking a prolonged break from YouTube to focus on her mental health, Singh is back in the full swing of things but KEEMSTAR doesn’t seem to be too keen on the direction of her content since her return.

Citing a “common issue” he’s seeing on YouTube of late, KEEMSTAR criticizes Singh for “trying [too] hard & becoming too plastic.”

KEEMSTAR’s latest criticism of Singh looks to be centered around the Holiday video series she’s in the midst of making for her YouTube channel.

Each day, she’s been teaming up with different celebrities such as Rita Ora, John Cena, Terry Crews, and Alicia Keys to make different comedic Christmas videos.

It seems that KEEMSTAR feels as though the videos would have done better if they were collabs with other YouTubers rather than celebrities.

At the time of writing, just two of the 10 videos posted has received over one million views.

This isn’t the first time that KEEMSTAR has taken aim at Singh, either, as he previously called her out for sparking controversy around a series of Tweets about there being no women on Forbe’s list of highest-earning creators.

Singh has yet to respond to KEEMSTAR’s statements and given their track record, it’s unlikely that she’ll ever issue a response of any kind.

Vinnie Hacker lashes out at “manipulative” fans after TikTok fame

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
