YouTuber Trisha Paytas has tried her hand at a variety of different content, from making music to mukbang videos and even ASMR — but she had a self-described “falling out” with another huge name in the audiophile scene.

Zach Choi is another huge name in the YouTube world, boasting over seven million subscribers due to his massively popular combination of mukbang and ASMR videos.

For those not in the loop, a “mukbang” is an online broadcast that often features a creator eating large amounts of food for their audience, while ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) content strives to give viewers that tingly-scalp feeling by producing certain sounds over a highly sensitive microphone.

Choi has found the best of both worlds by combining these two viral topics, and even collaborated with Paytas on a number of such videos — but the two no longer create content together, as she revealed during an episode of the H3 Podcast in mid-March.

The YouTube star admitted that she and Choi had a “falling out” with each other thanks to previous drama with another mukbang YouTuber, Nikocado Avocado, who claimed that Paytas had ghosted him after convincing him to travel to the United States for a collaborative video.

ASMR YouTuber Zach Choi and internet star Trisha Paytas had an alleged “falling out,” which Paytas explained during an episode of the H3 Podcast.

“How did you guys fall out?” Podcast host Ethan Klein asked.

“The Nikocado thing,” Paytas answered. “Nikocado threw me under the bus, and then I was on drugs… everyone was throwing each other under the bus.”

She went on to clarify that the incident took place in December, which she described as her “last little drug binge” before going sober.

While her drama with Nikocado spurred a slew of backlash online, the two have since made up by finally collaborating on their previously planned mukbang video in August 2019 — but the issues don’t end there, with Nikocado also allegedly having legal troubles with Choi, himself, claiming that his fellow ASMRtist was trying to sue him in January.

Contrary to its relatively relaxing content, it seems that much drama is afoot in the ASMR/Mukbang community — leading to a falling out between two of its biggest content creators.


Twitch streamer fails miserably trying to help a thirsty dog

Dogs are adorable intelligent animals, but any owner of a pup knows that they can also be especially dumb – and hilarious.

When IRL Twitch streamer CookSux saw a chained up dog while walking around Gyeongsan, South Korea, he wanted to help. Except, it turned out to be a huge failure.

Out of the goodness of his heart on a sunny day, this streamer decided to put the last of his water from his bottle into the dog’s bowl.

Initially, it seemed as though the dog wanted food or water as it held its bowl in its mouth and wagged its tail as the streamer approached. The dog kept pacing back and forth, as CookSux said to viewers he thought it was afraid of the lawnmower.

CookSux couldn’t believe it when the dog tipped the bowl over

At first, the streamer tried to pour the water into its mouth, while the dog seemed to lap it up but seemed more interested in other things.

Cooksux decided to give the dog a little treat instead, despite viewers in the comments telling him to pour the water in the bowl.

But the dog didn’t seem to want a snack either, continuing to pace around with the bowl as the streamer shouted “You dummy!” and threw little bits of food at the ground so he could eat.

However, clearly this dog was feeling more playful than thirsty. As soon as CookSux was able to pour water into the bowl, the dog immediately flipped it over with its paw, grabbed the whole thing with its mouth, and carried it around like a brand new toy.

Defeated and frustrated, CookSux stared at the camera holding the empty water bottle, before shouting at the viewers saying “You don’t know what to do with these dogs, you don’t know sh*it.”

At the time of writing the Twitch clip now has more than 19,000 views, more than double the views of the original stream.
