Popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le is fighting back against accusations of clout-chasing, after using both PewDiePie’s and Ethan Klein’s images in the thumbnail of an apology video.
Klein, of YouTube comedy duo H3H3, took issue with RiceGum’s apology video, claiming that he was throwing other YouTubers under the bus and avoiding responsibility for promoting gambling to his young fans due to partnering with alleged scam website ‘MysteryBrand.net.’
RiceGum is continuing to take shots at Klein, further addressing the issue in a vlog published on January 11. Le hit back at claims of ‘clout-chasing’ due to using both Klein’s and PewDiePie’s images in the thumbnail of his apology video, as well as using PewDiePie’s name in the title (which was later removed).
