YouTube star Trisha Paytas stirred backlash across the net after coming out as a transgender man in early October. Now, she’s switching gears with a surprising new move that has fans scratching their heads.

Paytas uploaded a video on October 25 that turned her transgender scandal on its head, announcing that she was engaged to be married in just a week’s time.

That day has since come and gone, with the YouTuber refusing to let slip any details about the identity of her husband, until now.

Paytas uploaded another video on November 5 titled, “OFFICIAL WEDDING VIDEO,” causing fans and critics alike to scramble to her channel in hopes of a reveal for the mystery groom.

Unfortunately, they were met with an even more confusing matter: rather than featuring an actual human being, Paytas’ long-await wedding video saw her get married to a life-sized cardboard cutout of Hollywood actor Brad Pitt.

Whether or not this is a mere stunt for views remains to be seen, but fans are divided as to Paytas’ intentions with the video, with some claiming that she’s using her “wedding” as a means to distract from the fallout of her transgender announcement.

“It’s obvious she did all of this to distract everyone from the transgender scandal,” one viewer wrote.

“Trisha paytas just had a full blown wedding with a cardboard cutout of Brad Pitt a week after coming out as trans but not trans,” another critic Tweeted. “Can someone PLEASE help her.”

That’s not all: some fans speculate that Paytas actually bought the ring herself from an Etsy store, while others claim that there is no marriage certificate on file for the star from Nevada.

An inquiry from the Nevada State Records website turns up zero results, begging the burning question: is Paytas’s marriage the real deal, at all? Is it just a stunt for views? Or is she buying time before revealing her actual husband – if she was really married in the first place?

For now, fans are left in the dark as the YouTube star careens down another confusing pathway in the wake of a scandal that rocked the internet.

After a number of allegations were levied against CallMeCarson for alleged grooming of a minor, YouTuber Jschlatt, a friend of Carson, has made a video responding to the whole situation.

Over the past few days, YouTuber CallMeCarson has been accused of grooming underage fans, something that has been met with a large amount of controversy.

While it was already reported by SlimeCircle, a former member of the Lunch Club, that the group was aware of what was happening a while back, another YouTuber has come out talking about the controversy.

JSchlatt, a friend of Carson’s, has made a new video in reference to the grooming allegations. He confirmed hearing about the grooming issue back in early 2020 and that he and Carson were in phone calls “almost every night” as they tried to help him through “the lowest point in his life”.

CallMeCarson has been accused of grooming a minor over the past few days.

“Right after he told us the truth, the Kate situation happened and regardless of what we felt about the Kat situation, we saw Carson’s mental state decline even more and it was to the point that we genuinely thought his life could be in danger and I felt like I needed to be there for him and that’s why I stuck with him,” Jschlatt said.

The YouTuber also clarified that he “never condoned” what Carson had done, even letting the YouTuber know that if the behavior continued, they were “done”.

Towards the end of the video, JSchlatt claimed that he started having conversations with Carson’s other friends and found out things that “suggested Carson wasn’t improving in the areas that he should have been and that he was showing signs of continuing his inappropriate behavior.”

He also added that, seeing the DMs between these girls and Carson “f**king disgusted” him to the point where he could no longer say with confidence “that Carson’s behavior ever stopped” and that after he realized this, he cut ties with Carson a few weeks back.

At the end of the video, Jschlatt said that, while he doesn’t believe Carson is a “pedophile”, he does think that the Minecraft YouTuber did use his power to take advantage of “vulnerable people”.

“This is recurring problem now, of content creators who take complete advantage of and manipulate the people that care about them the most…I don’t know what causes this to happen, I don’t know what compels content creators to do this but it happens and it’s a big f*ckin’ problem.”
