YouTube star Logan Paul is pleading with one of the platform’s biggest content creators, David Dobrik, to make his long-awaited return after going radio silent in wake of current world events.

Dobrik ceased his uploads after stay-at-home orders were put in place in California — a development that made sense to fans, considering that his fast-paced content largely relies on the hijinks of his hilarious friend group.

However, Dobrik broke his content hiatus to partner with EA Games and give away huge amounts of cash, cars and other prizes to fans and bystanders, but returned to his undetermined break shortly thereafter.

YouTube star David Dobrik has been relatively silent on social media due to current global events.

Since then, Dobrik’s fanbase has been waiting with bated breath for his eventual return to the site — and they’re not alone.

YouTuber Logan Paul uploaded a video on May 25 pleading with the vlogging star to make a comeback, using the ever-popular introduction of Avatar: The Last Airbender to poke fun at ongoing drama on the platform.

YouTuber Logan Paul has also taken notice of Dobrik’s absence from the platform, and pleaded with him to return with a humorous skit that referenced Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Editing in Dobrik as the Avatar, Logan casted the four nations of the show as James Charles, PewDiePie, RyanToysReview, and Mr Beast, respectively, with Sokka and Katara as the currently feuding KEEMSTAR and H3H3.

“Where are you, David Dobrik?” Logan asked, performing faux martial arts in his backyard. “I need you. I miss you David. I want your videos back in my life — and that’s not even me being sarcastic. Being the YouTube Avatar is hard, and it’s not the same without you, David.”

While Dobrik has been uploading content to his TikTok account, it’s true that fans and critics alike are wondering when he will make a comeback to his regular vlogs — but the star was adamant that he would refrain from regular uploads until the global crisis has passed.

Paul and Dobrik share a tenuous history; Paul expressed dismay after Dobrik allegedly snuck onto the set of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast in 2018, and even left him on read when asked to be part of the show two years later.

For now, it looks like Logan’s journey as the “YouTube Avatar” will continue to be a lonely one, as Dobrik has yet to upload another video after months of inactivity.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
