Controversial YouTuber Trisha Paytas found herself at the center of drama, after being exposed by a fan for ghosting him after he flew to LA from Colombia for a collab - a move that YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg labeled as “abusive.”
PewDiePie addressed the matter in a video in an episode of ‘Cringe Thursday’ on May 30, where he called the YouTuber a “liar, manipulator, playing the victim,” and “aggressive.”
Aside from her drama with Nikocado Avocado, PewDiePie likewise took issue with her response toward comedian Ethan Klein’s comments on her photoshopped pictures, calling her request that his wife divorce him over the debacle “gross.”
Paytas uploaded her own video responding to PewDiePie’s commentary the very next day, claiming that she’d been hit with a slew of Tweets about the drama and didn’t even believe it was real on the outset - later admitting that she felt it might be the “nail in my YouTube coffin.”
“The thing that maybe sparked the most out of me was him saying the ‘liar, manipulator, aggressive, abusive,’” Paytas explained. “Which are terms that people have used to describe me, which are terms I would never describe myself as.”
While Paytas went on to claim that she has made “many mistakes,” she ultimately upheld that she is a good person, later admitting that she has a tendency to “ghost” people, in reference to her failed meetup with Nikocado Avocado.
“I just feel bad,” she continued. “If I just don’t want to hang out with somebody, and that’s more of me, I don’t know, not vibing with someone, wanting to save my energy, being lazy, I don’t know - whatever the case is, sometimes I just don’t want to hang out with people, and I feel so awkward to say no over and over.”
Paytas wasn’t the only one involved in the drama that responded PewDiePie’s video; Nikocado himself reacted to Kjellberg’s comments in his own video on the subject, where he admitted that he was more hurt by her response after the drama took off, rather than her initial “ghosting.”
Trisha Paytas is known for her breakdown videos and controversial behavior, boasting over 4.8 million subscribers on YouTube as of May 31.
