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.

AOC explains how Elo Hell in League helped her prepare for Congress

In her second Twitch stream, AOC hilariously explained how experiencing Elo Hell in League of Legends helped her develop the patience required for being a congresswoman.

U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, affectionally known as AOC, has been open about how much she loves League of Legends in the past. The proud politician even stunned her fans and followers when she revealed she finally made Silver IV.

It might have been her first foray into the minds and hearts of gamers around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the last. In October, AOC made history when hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in to watch her play Among Us on Twitch for the very first time.

AOC was so well-loved among streamers and viewers, they begged her to come back for a second stream. It finally happened on November 27, and it was as wholesome and entertaining as the first.

AOC’s first ever Among Us stream on Twitch was a smash hit.

At one point during the stream, Ryan ‘Northernlion’ Letourneau asked AOC an interesting question about her League of Legends experience and her response was both understandable and hilarious.

“Do you think having to keep your cool in League of Legends chat has helped your political career when it comes to maintaining some decorum in Congress?” asked Northernlion.

“Yeah, I think so,” said AOC. “Getting caught in Elo Hell really requires so much patience. I was playing with 12-year-olds… rage quitting five minutes into a game… so it really builds your patience.”

Elo Hell is a term used to describe situations where players and their rankings are dragged down due to incompetent and toxic teammates. It’s something League of Legends players know all too well, including AOC.

AOC has always managed to come across as down-to-earth. Still, it’s comforting and kind of funny to hear an esteemed congresswoman talk about something so relatable, especially to gamers.

Elo Hell in League of Legends is the absolute pits, but at least we now know it counts for something.
