Fans of immensely popular YouTuber Carson ‘CallMeCarson’ King have been left wondering where the online entertainer has gone, amid social media silence and a lack of streams and content.
CallMeCarson is the name adopted by Carson King, a YouTuber and Twitch streamer, best known for his Minecraft videos and streams.
He has amassed a massive online following, peaking at over 3 million YouTube subscribers, but he has since started losing subs, and has now dropped below 3 million. His Twitch following is similarly monumental, just shy of 1.5 million.
However, his social media profiles have lay dormant now for months. There has been no Twitter activity since January 5, and no streams of any kind since the end of December.
Where is CallMeCarson?
On January 5, accusations emerged of underage grooming, made against the 21-year-old.
The accusations were initially revealed in a KEEMSTAR Drama Alert video, and pertain to a then 17-year-old with whom Carson is alleged to have exchanged messages when he was 19.

Following on from Keem’s YouTube video, traction picked up on Twitter as more accusations were floated.
‘Slimecicle’, who formed part of the Minecraft YouTube group ‘Lunchbox’ alongside CallMeCarson, commented on the allegations, saying that all members had cut ties with King upon him revealing he had exchanged naked photos with a girl he believed to be 17.

Carson’s absence is almost certainly related to the grooming accusations. He has still not addressed them in any public capacity since his absence from the social internet.

Whether Carson is behind the scenes trying to right his past wrongs is also unclear, but his audience and much of the gaming community have been left scratching their heads as to his absence.
Many expected a statement from the YouTuber, perhaps admitting to and apologizing for his alleged actions. As of the time of writing, no statement has emerged from the 21-year-old or his management.
It looks like, for the time being, Carson is done with content creation entirely. With no update whatsoever after months of waiting, there is no indication of if or when he will return.
We will keep this article updated as any news from Carson’s camp emerges.
