Controversial YouTuber LeafyIsHere returned from a nearly 10-month hiatus to speak with Drama Alert host KEEMSTAR, where he explained what had caused him to leave the platform indefinitely.

Leafy explained that making daily videos had “burnt him out,” and that YouTube’s changes toward monetization, censorship, and copyright had incited his break back in December of 2017.

“YouTube itself was just becoming worse and worse over time,” Leafy answered. “The monetization yellow things were frustrating to deal with. There were so many changes… the entire platform was turning.”

He also cited YouTube’s trending page as an issue that bothered him, citing BuzzFeed and other trending channels as “shit” that turned him away from the platform.

“It wasn’t one big thing that just happened,” he continued. “It was slow… more and more things to just add on top of it, and eventually, it was just the [straw] that broke the camel’s back.”

Leafy admitted that he thought about returning to YouTube now and again but ultimately held that he wouldn’t be able to voice his opinion as he used to on his channel.

LeafyIsHere was at the center of multiple controversies before his hiatus, catching flack for his videos criticizing creators like autistic YouTuber TommyNC2010, and eventually KEEMSTAR himself. This led to a slew of allegations from YouTubers like iDubbbz and Nick Cash.

He admitted that his hit piece on KEEMSTAR had been for the “adsense,” which KEEMSTAR seemed to take in good spirits.

Leafy is now investing in stocks and bonds, and even teased that he might make a return to YouTube in the future.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
