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.”

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.

Retired rapper turned Twitch streamer Robert ‘Logic’ Hall II praised chess Grand Master Hikaru Nakamura during a recent collaboration.

Chess has really taken off on Twitch within the last year or so, leading to some sizable events such as PogChamps that featured big names including Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel.

The rise of chess on the platform also helped elevate the career of professional player Hikaru Nakamura, who even got picked up by Team SoloMid as their first-ever chess player.

Now, Logic has gotten in on the chess hype and explained to Hikaru just why he loves watching his stream while talking with the elite player.

Logic has taken Twitch by storm.

“You know what’s so funny about you is you’re such a f**king technical person that I love it,” Logic said, resulting in a wide smile by Hikaru.

“Like, when I watch your streams or I watch your streams with my wife, we love you because you’re such a character, but you’re just yourself. And I mean that in a very respectful way,” he added. “I mean, the way you talk, the way you play, like I don’t know if you realize just how hilarious you are.”

It’s definitely an interesting statement. Some of the most popular streamers in the world, such as Dr Disrespect, are full-blown over-the-top characters while others tend to be more natural and themselves.

Logic further explained that while Hikaru is funny, it’s not meant in an insulting way. “The way you talk, you’re hilarious man!” the artist beamed causing the streamer let out a hardy laugh.

“You scrub stomp and the way you talk is great,” he concluded, earning some thank-yous from the chess prodigy. “It’s fine to be peasant here with the king, upon playing the king today, I appreciate it.”

For GMHikaru, he was thankful for the praise and noted how Logic wasn’t the first person to say those things about him.

Even though 2020 may have been a bad year for many, it certainly wasn’t all that tragic for chess streamers. Hopefully, the trend continues and the game sees further growth in 2021 and the years to come.
