Popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and ex-Twitch streamer Corinna Kopf clashed on December 27, over the latter’s move to Facebook Gaming.
Corinna Kopf announced her move to Facebook Gaming on December 27, following a controversial ban from her previous streaming platform, Twitch. She was banned for a year old clip, leading to confusion and frustration on the 24-year-old’s behalf.
Kopf explained her decision, stating that she wanted to move to a platform she thought could better empower her and give her followers a better viewing experience. However, in the hours after the announcement was made, Kopf clashed with Keem over the origins of their success.
In response to Kopf’s original announcement tweet, Keem responded: “Kinda a gold dig, but I love a good hustle. 50% congrats.”
Keem’s suggestion that Kopf had only moved to Facebook for the money was shared by a few other Twitter users. It is the same kind of accusation faced by Shroud, Ninja and CouRage, following their respective moves away from Twitch.
However, Keem’s comment didn’t go down too well with the 24-year-old, who instantly hit back.
“C’mon Keem,” she replied. “We have so much in common! We both have careers because of other people”.
Kopf’s tweet is both self-deprecating and scathing, suggesting Keem has made a career for himself by talking about other people on his YouTube news show, DramaAlert.
As part of David Dobrik’s ‘Vlog Squad’, Kopf became a well-known figure on YouTube. Further to this, her relationship with Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney saw her establish a significant following on her own Twitch channels. Once again, Keem did not take well to Kopf’s comments.
It appears that Keem is referring to the relationship Kopf had with Tfue, which ended back in the summer before the pair reunited. Following Keem’s final tweet, Kopf has not issued a response.
Despite Keem’s backhanded compliments and the pair’s subsequent clashes, many were quick to congratulate Kopf over the move to Facebook. It seems a number of fans are excited about the prospect of a new home for the talented streamer.
