Popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le has called out YouTube once again for the deletion of his video, while a similar video created by PewDiePie remains untouched.

The video in question is a reaction to a compilation of TikTok videos, which RiceGum had apparently tried to upload multiple times, as cited in a group of deleted Tweets compiled by KEEMSTAR in a previous Drama Alert segment.

RiceGum took issue with YouTube’s disparate punishment toward its creators, citing PewDiePie’s own TikTok reaction video that was created after his own, and is still up on the platform.

“I made a TikTok video on October 6, and it gets taken off of YouTube because it’s inappropriate …I don’t even know why,” he explained. “And then PewDiePie – after me – posts his TikTok video. It’s still on YouTube, and it’s just reacting to it.”

He made sure to clarify that his issue was with YouTube alone, and subsequently brought on celebrity guests FaZe Banks and FaZe Tfue to take part in his TikTok review.

“I can’t just be living in the past,” RiceGum joked. “Time to move on. I can’t let YouTube end my fun on TikTok.”

RiceGum called out YouTube ahead of the video’s release in early October, claiming that the video was removed for violating the platform’s terms of service. A thread of responses from the Team YouTube Twitter account can be found assessing the situation, which they claimed to be an error on their end.

RiceGum’s comments follow a slew of YouTubers lashing out at the platform as of late, including the likes of KEEMSTAR, Markiplier, and even H3H3.

Smash Melee star Ludwig Ahgren sent a Pokemon card Twitch stream into a meltdown when he pulled a 1st Edition Dragonite worth up to $10k. The gaming pro scored the rare collectible after streamer Trainwreckstv gave him the pack.

Pokemon cards have taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to see their favorite personalities chase after the rarest Nintendo collectibles.

A live Trading Card Game box opening hosted by streamer Mizkif and his org One True King went off the rails on November 22 when Smash pro Ludwig scored a rare Dragonite that could have been Trainwrecks’.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
