British YouTuber Morgan ‘Morgz’ Hudson has released screenshots of a private conversation with Brian ‘RiceGum’ Le after the American uploaded a video to his channel where he labeled the Hudsons as “the worst family on YouTube.”

Morgz is one of the most popular content creators on the video-sharing platform, with his uploads regularly drawing over three million views. He’s even hosted a special event called “MorgzFest” where fans could meet him, his family, and even watch a live show.

While the 18-year-old attracts millions to his videos, RiceGum clearly isn’t a fan, releasing a video taking shots at Morgz and his content.

Instagram: MorgzMorgz and his family upload to YouTube, but RiceGum isn’t a fan.

After watching some of the Morgz’s videos, RiceGum told his audience that they needed to “tone it down,” that their content was clearly fake, and that the acting in them was “so bad.”

“You all really let this kid get more views than me?” the 22-year-old asked his viewers. “Who is watching this? How does this get famous? You guys are messed up, you guys are lying to your viewers, and you’re kind of cringey.”

Clip starts at 8:00 for mobile users.

In response, Morgz tweeted out a series of images showing that RiceGum had blocked him on Twitter, and revealed direct messages sent between the pair with the caption: “You hate to see it.”

In a screenshot of an apparent conversation which took place on January 3, 2019, RiceGum apparently sent Morgz three messages, with one stating “Good stuff man,” and another including an offer to collaborate together, saying: “Lets make a funny (video).”

RiceGum has refrained from responding to Morgz and his decision, maintaining radio silence on Twitter, and has yet to upload a video since his September 7 roasting of the Hudson family.

The American is well known for dropping diss tricks, so it’s possible he may decide to respond in the form of a musical bashing, although there’s no official word on when he could respond to Morgz and his tweet.

Paige breaks down on Twitch as WWE’s streaming crackdown kicks in

WWE superstar Paige, real name Saraya-Jade Bevis, broke down in front of her fans on Twitch after the news came through that her employers had started cracking down on talent engaging on third-party platforms. 

Under their new restrictions, the sports entertainment company will take proceeds from their stars streaming under the wrestling names. For example, Paige’s donations on Twitch would previously be paid to her directly, but in the future that will not be the case.

In response to the measures, stars like her and AJ Styles have decided to stop streaming for a period of time – until more suitable terms can be agreed between both parties.

For a wrestler like Paige, though, who is injured – this was a difficult pill to swallow.

Paige, like many other WWE stars, has a huge following on social media.

Paige gets devastating news on Twitch

On October 29, the British star – who hails from Norwich, England – decided to cancel her stream after receiving the news on her phone while live.  In the spur of the moment, she walked off-stream for a short while before returning to the screen. Tears flowing down her face, she started to explain what was happening.

The Twitch broadcast VOD itself has been muted in certain areas, potentially due to the music being played in the background. So, clips are quite hard to come by on there, but some have posted the comments to YouTube.

Bevis said: “There may be a time where I have to stop streaming. I’ll have to walk away. If I have to leave, we have to make today and Saturday f***ing crazy. I’ve honestly gotten to the point where I cannot deal with this company anymore. Now I have to make a very important decision.

“Over f***ing worked. I broke my f***ing neck twice for this company. They don’t realize that this community isn’t about subs. We build a community and family where this is an escape for a lot of people, including myself. I can’t wrestle anymore. I was worked so hard in WWE that I can’t wrestle anymore because my neck is f***ed. My whole dreams got taken away. I had to have something that fulfilled that huge f***ing void that I lost with wrestling.”

Twitch has been an escape for injured Paige

The star injured her neck back in 2017 and has since even returned to the ring. At the time of her stream, though, she is out with another injury and unable to compete. Turning to Twitch, she has built up quite the following – with almost 150,000 people following her channel.

After that, she confirmed that she plans to continue streaming one way or another, and will see where that takes her. During the livestream, Paige revealed going live on the streaming website wasn’t for the donations and subscriber payments, but instead, an escape.

She added: “I understand if they’re like, ‘you’re wrestling every day and doing shows every day,’ but I’m an injured wrestler. I get used for media stuff, sometimes, but at the end of the day, I’m in my house going f***ing crazy and I need something to keep me sane.

“Twitch was my escape. Right now, I’m just sitting on my f***ing ass. People think I should be thankful that I still have a job, and I am, but it doesn’t mean I should be treated like f***ing shit. I had my neck taken away from me twice. You can’t take away my Twitch too.”

It appears to be heating up in the battle between employees and their employer. There’s a good chance WWE superstars take further action in the dispute too, as Paige mentioned potential unionization and hiring a lawyer, so it could be about to get a whole lot messier.
