Popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le is lashing out at H3H3’s Ethan Klein, after Klein took issue with his video explaining his partnership with alleged scam website ‘MysteryBrand.net.’

Klein joked that RiceGum was a snitch, after the YouTuber cited a slew of other creators on the platform who had partnered with the brand, noting that they were not undergoing the same scrutiny as himself or Jake Paul for being involved in the scandal.

RiceGum took issue with Klein’s joke, clarifying that he didn’t intend to throw other YouTubers under the bus, but was rather trying to make a point concerning the outrage around the debacle.

“I wasn’t trying to throw those guys under the bus,” RiceGum explained. “I was trying to say that those guys were big YouTubers that did the same thing way before me. Why is it a problem now?”

RiceGum went on to insult Klein, poking fun at his age and joking that he was being bullied by him. He then went on to dig up dirt from the YouTuber, comparing his own scandal with that of Klein’s partnership with online counseling service Better Help, which was largely decried across the internet after users took issue with the site’s shady terms of service.

“He thinks people are too quick to hop on things when it’s about him, but when it’s about me, he be the first one there!” RiceGum argued.

RiceGum went on to find it ironic that Klein listed other YouTubers who had also partnered with Better Help, joking that he was snitching on the likes of Shane Dawson and Philip DeFranco.

Klein has yet to respond to RiceGum’s callout on his social media accounts.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
