YouTube star David Dobrik is a popular face on the platform, boasting over 13 million subscribers as of August 24 – but fellow YouTuber Trisha Paytas is claiming that the vlogger has “ruined” her life.

Paytas uploaded a video on August 24 responding to YouTuber Jeff Wittek, who discussed an incident at a Starbucks where he allegedly saw Paytas – but didn’t mention her by name in his podcast episode on the subject.

According to Wittek, he left the Starbucks without causing a scene, although he refused to make eye contact with Paytas because he “doesn’t have any respect” for the YouTuber.

Paytas gets emotional in her video response

While Wittek refused to name Paytas, she directly claimed that she was the person in question, and lashed out at both Wittek and David Dobrik, claiming that the past year has been “the worst year of her life.”

“Me and Jason had to hide our friendship or whatever the fuck we were for three months, because David did not want me in the friend group because I made a video about an uncomfortable incident that happened to me in my relationship!” Paytas yelled through tears.

What incident is Paytas talking about in her latest video?

The incident Paytas referred to occurred earlier this year, after she spoke out about her ex-boyfriend Jason Nash joking about having a threesome with YouTuber Tana Mongeau – who was just twenty years old at the time, compared to Nash’s 45 years.

This proposition made both Paytas and Mongeau uncomfortable, with Dobrik allegedly shutting Paytas out of the “Vlog Squad” due to the ensuing drama.

While Paytas’ original video has since been deleted from YouTube, copies of her emotional spiel are still floating across the platform – and the beef is still ongoing, with the YouTuber accusing Dobrik of “using” other content creators for his vlogs before kicking them out of the squad.

“I’ll call his name out, David Dobrik – the worst,” Paytas said in her latest video. “Uses, uses, uses, and then, ‘Oh, you’re not good anymore? Get her out of the group.’”

xQc challenges Twitch as WoW streamer C9 Ziqo gets banned for “no reason”

Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has challenged Twitch over a potential inconsistency in their banning protocol, angered by the news that fellow streamer C9 Ziqo was suspended without explanation and couldn’t stream for a few days as a result. 

Ziqo’s ban was announced on January 19, but after almost a week passed by without any confirmation about the time he could return to playing for his audience, xQc has decided back him publicly with a message to decision makers.

Of course, the former Overwatch pro has been in this difficult situation a number of times, having been banned more than once on Twitch. Most recently, he was banned in November 2020 for cheating at a Twitch Rivals event.

Twitch users could be banned for using the word "simp" from January.

This is how the channel looks, following the ban.

Twitch urged to take action over WoW streamer ban

After seeing World of Warcraft fans were still waiting to hear more from C9 Ziqo, on January 25 he urged Twitch to make a move and “stop stalling” on his case.

In a tweet, the Canadian posted: “IF I GET A VOD TIMESTAMP WHEN I GET SUSPENDED, HE SHOULD TOO,” tagging Twitch Support in his message. “PLEASE GIVE THIS MAN A TIMESTAMP OR FIX. STREAMERS LOSE TRACTION OVERNIGHT, STOP STALLING.”

The argument he’s making, that streamers can lose traction overnight, is certainly a valid one. With a player unable to stream, viewers – in turn – also are unable to watch, living off snippets of information posted to Twitter during the ban.

There is no guarantee that the viewership will be of the same size following the ban, xQc argues.

C9 Ziqo opens up on his Twitch suspension

C9 Ziqo confirmed he would be making a YouTube video explaining everything, and that’s since been released. It’s included in the tweet xQc responded to, and shows the streamer revealing everything we knows so far about his suspension.

During the video, he says it was a violation of Twitch TOS, but the specific issue wasn’t confirmed. In a tweet, he revealed his own suspicion that something has been misheard during a stream. He has since launched an appeal.

“It could be anything honestly in that policy,” he said in his YouTube video.

Clarity is something Ziqo will want himself, but more broadly speaking fellow streamers and his fans would prefer to know why this has happened in the first place.

 

Whether or not the process of lifting the suspension will be accelerated following the message from his fellow streamer remains to be seen.
