Fresh off his return from hiatus to roast Ian ‘iDubbbz’ Carter, YouTuber LeafyIsHere uploaded a new video on April 12 calling out H3H3’s Ethan Klein for being “angry” after the podcast host had been critical of him.
After years of being absent from the platform, LeafyIsHere made his surprising return to YouTube on April 4 to roast iDubbbz over the swirling “simp” drama surrounding him and his girlfriend Anisa Jomha.
However the reaction channel personality didn’t stop there, as he took shots at H3H3’s Ethan Klein on April 12 after the podcast host had recently been critical of his work, calling it “low effort.”
LeafyIsHere hits back at H3H3’s Ethan Klein
The YouTuber responded by uploading a video with clips from the April 3 episode of the H3 podcast, and paused on Ethan’s rant about viewers calling iDubbbz a simp. “This dude just seems like he has a lot of anger in his heart right now. Like, this guy might be a little bit angry,” he said.
He then showed a segment where H3H3 was critical of his return. “Leafy came on and just said “you’re a f**king c*ck, dude,” and that was it, and people loved it! Well Leafy, you are putting about as much effort into your content as you ever did,” Ethan said.
Responding, Leafy ended the upload by harshly taking shots at Klein, exclaiming, “You are a fat f**king disgusting piece of s**t” before cutting to a picture of North Korea’s leader.

This isn’t the first time H3H3 and LeafyIsHere have clashed. In March 2016, Ethan uploaded a now-deleted video essay criticizing him for supposedly making toxic reaction content.
The personality was also the subject of iDubbbz’ wildly popular ‘Content Cop’ series in that same month, although due to YouTube’s change in policies, the video was removed from the platform in 2019.
While Klein was critical of Leafy’s response, he also wasn’t sure how serious the upload was. “I don’t know how serious Leafy was being. Because everyone was egging him on. So to give Leafy the benefit of the doubt, he was probably just playing into the gag,” he said.

Leafy has taken a break from making content since 2017, stating in interviews that it was partly a result of the Google-owned company’s change in rules which have put restrictions on the type of content that can be hosted on the site.
Regardless if you agree or disagree, the short videos have been pulling in millions of views. At the time of writing, H3’s Ethan Klein has yet to respond, but if the past is any indication, it’s likely he will have something to say sooner rather than later.
