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.”

A popular TikTok hairstylist has turned off comments on all platforms after claims of discrimination went viral, leading to people review bombing her Yelp page. But who exactly is Hair by Chrissy and why has she gone so viral?

Video sharing app TikTok is the perfect breeding ground for virality, with videos going from nothing to hundreds of thousands of likes overnight, trends sweeping its huge user base with its spookily smart algorithm.


But many users have found themselves coming across huge talking points that have seemingly sprung out of the blue, and one of those phenomena is Hair by Chrissy who has found herself ‘cancelled’ overnight. But many are confused as to exactly who she is and why there are so many videos springing up about her.

Hair by Chrissy is a hair stylist TikToker, with a relatively sizable following of 1.5 million. She has previously styled huge TikTok stars such as Dixie D’Amelio and Cynthia Parker, and owns Habit Salons in both LA and Arizona.

Chrissy initially caught some backlash when salon customers emerged with reviews claiming that that the salon was not enforcing the use of masks, in an apparent flouting of recent regulations.

As this criticism began to brew, viral TikToks started to pick up traction that documented the many reviews that had flooded Habit Salon’s Yelp page, claiming that Chrissy had been discriminatory to people of color.

The reviews alleged that Chrissy “doesn’t do ethnic hair” and many viral TikToks claim that the salon has been deleting reviews that in particular call out alleged incidents of misconduct by staff members against people of color.

One particularly scathing review claimed the salon provided “mediocre hairstyles by an entitled anti-masker. Definitely not worth anyone’s time. Extensions don’t look blended at all and she doesn’t give a crap about you unless you have TikTok followers. This old lady is cancelled.”

Yelp itself even ended up freezing the salon’s review pages due to the “increased public attention,” the viral drama starting to appear on people’s For You Pages globally.

Hair by Chrissy herself has now turned off comments on all her social media platforms to deflect the hate, but continues to post videos and images to her various accounts. She even reposted a video from her former videographer claiming she’s one of the most “talented and hardworking people he knows.”


That hasn’t stopped memes about the bizarre incident to flood both TikTok and Twitter, with many joking they are on “Hair by Chrissy TikTok” and saying “Hair by Chrissy on TikTok said I see your White House garden party and I raise you an indoor salon with no masks and questionable aesthetics.”

At the time of writing there has been no formal response to the outrage from the popular TikTok stylist, and they continue to post as normal.
