Controversial social media star Logan Paul feels that YouTube might be censoring content with his name attached – and he isn’t the only major YouTuber to come forward with this claim.

Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem posted a Tweet on December 5, which claimed that his videos with Logan Paul’s name in the title or tags did poorly in comparison to his other uploads – and even accused YouTube of “suppressing” any videos mentioning the Maverick mogul.

“Every time I make a video with Logan Paul’s name in title or tags the video… the video gets way less views, and fans complain they did not get notifications,” KEEM wrote. “It’s clear YouTube is suppressing videos mentioning him. Even his own content is being suppressed.”

Logan Paul responded to KEEM’s claims with another Tweet on the same day, admitting that he has been seeing similar results on his own content.

“I hate to say this, and I mean I REALLY hate to say this, but I think these are facts,” Paul replied. “Please love me again YouTube.”

KEEMSTAR went on to post a video further detailing the effects of YouTube’s supposed “suppression,” finding a significant difference in views and interactions upon removing Paul’s name from his content.

While YouTube’s past statements have expressed clarity concerning their policies, KEEMSTAR is far from the last YouTuber to call out the website for its “broken” system; massive YouTuber Markiplier likewise speculated that Google Plus’s removal from the site could be throwing a wrench in the platform’s code, resulting in major hiccups throughout the website’s back end.

YouTube star David Dobrik is one of the internet’s most famous content creators — but living in the limelight isn’t always a cake walk, as he discovered after one of his viewers began stalking his home.

Boasting well over 18 million subscribers on YouTube, it comes as little surprise that Dobrik receives the occasional unwanted visitor at his house, which has happened several times before.

However, this latest incident took a dark turn, as revealed during an episode of Dobrik and Jason Nash’s ‘VIEWS’ podcast in early October where the star revealed one viewer took things a little too far.

During the episode, Dobrik explained that the fan — a young woman in her “early twenties” — had sat outside of his home on the street curb for two days before banging on the door, yelling his name.

In an episode of his VIEWS podcast with Jason Nash, David Dobrik revealed a disturbing encounter with a woman who was stalking him.

After Dobrik went outside to investigate, he reported that the viewer suffered from appeared to be a “panic attack” and quickly shouted “Nevermind, you can’t help me,” before “storming” out of his driveway.

Understandably concerned, Dobrik and company followed the woman, to no avail — but a day later, a neighbor texted the YouTuber that someone had keyed his assistant, Natalie’s, Ford Bronco.

The vehicle (pictured below) was etched with symbols, according to Dobrik, which included his name written in odd lettering.

Upon investigating the car, David found that the woman was nearby, claiming she wanted to “apologize” — but quickly became what he described as “scary,” prompting him to call law enforcement for help in case things got sticky.

Luckily, the star was adamant that he didn’t want to “get her in trouble” but instead wanted her to “get help,” to which she agreed.

While waiting on the police to arrive, Dobrik asked the woman why she’d stalked him, to which she replied: “He told me to just go for it.”

As for who “he” was? Dobrik claimed she said it was “the guy inside my head,” who told her that “if I came here, everything would be answered.”

Thankfully, the police were “super f**king nice” when they arrived and took the woman to a hospital, prompting a hilarious chat with an officer who advised Dobrik to change his name on social media — something he replied he was a “little late” for.

While this is far from the first time an internet celebrity has been outright stalked, it’s good to know that this situation ended peacefully, with Dobrik understanding that his stalker didn’t have bad intentions, but merely needed help.
