Mike Majlak, one of the co-hosts of Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast, has admitted that a number of allegations made by Trisha Paytas during her appearance on the show had to be edited out.

Trisha Paytas is a longtime creator on YouTube, uploading her first video back in 2007, and is known for her candid content in which she discusses her sex life, her personal relationships, and the issues she has with her peers on the site.

Since August, the 31-year-old has been in a public spat with the ‘Vlog Squad’ and its leader David Dobrik, claiming that he “ruined her life,” after the group severed ties with her entirely in the aftermath of her break up with member Jason Nash.

Paytas was a guest on Logan’s Impaulsive podcast, where she took shots at Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg and Jake Paul, but in an episode of his “Night Shift” show, Majlak revealed that a lot of what she said about the Vlog Squad had to be cut before it was released.

“We put out the Trisha Paytas episode of Impaulsive last week,” the 34-year-old stated. “I’ll be honest, we had to cut a lot of shit out of that one.

“There was a lot of back-and-forth with her ex-team, the Vlog Squad, that, unfortunately, didn’t make the cut. I think we try really hard to keep everything in these episodes, but when there are any kinds of crazy allegations or stuff that we don’t see there being evidence to support, we cut that stuff out, and this was one of those episodes.”

Majlak refrained from revealing what allegations and claims Paytas made during her appearance on the podcast, but the fact that they couldn’t be backed up to the hosts was enough to convince them that they shouldn’t be broadcast on their platform.

In a video uploaded to her channel, Paytas states that she discussed her relationship with Nash and her overall problems with the group, but refrained from going into details about what specifically was cut from the final version of the video.

Clip starts at 7:13 for mobile users.

Logan Paul himself has refrained from commenting publically on the allegations that were cut from Paytas’ appearance on his Impaulsive podcast.

The Vlog Squad are one of the most popular content creation groups on the platform, fronted by David Dobrik and made up of a number of popular YouTubers and former Viners like Scotty Sire, Gabbie Hanna, Josh Pec, Jason Nash, and Corinna Kopf. The group often appear in each other’s videos, creating vlogs, podcasts, and comedy skits across the site.

Dobrik has amassed over 13 million subscribers, with his videos regularly hitting 10 million views, making him one of the largest stars on the Google-owned platform in 2019.

Twitch streamers are speaking out against the broadcasting platform for attempting to promote brands within individual chats. Content creators are slamming the practice, especially since they have no control of removing the adverts from their channel.

One longtime YouTuber and Twitch streamer who goes by ‘The Black Hokage’ noticed a staffer had dropped a message in his Chat. The purpose of the text, sent by ‘newcryka,’ was to have the streamer acknowledge the listed brand with 400 Bits attached to the post.

He immediately took issue with the move: “Yo, are you promoting something?… You got a Twitch staff symbol next to your name, are you promoting sh*t in my Chat?”

After posting the interaction on Twitter, more streamers slammed the apparent unsolicited advertisement from the streaming platform.

“Creators beware! Twitch staff is now going around donating spare change in an attempt to trick you into shouting out brands without proper compensation. Don’t fall for it,” The Black Hokage said.

Twitch partner and viral streamer ‘negaoryx’ responded: “Which is great, because we can’t moderate anything said by Twitch staff in chat, so we can’t even purge it… great…”

There is a function that lets people ‘/Clear’ their channels messaging log, which lets “broadcasters and chat moderators to completely wipe the previous chat history.” This feature doesn’t apply to messages from Twitch staff accounts.

However the means, content creators and the wider Twitch community got an indication that the streaming platform could experience more intrusive marketing campaigns.

Some believe that The Black Hokage’s clip could have been a Twitch advertisement staff member testing out a new form of social engagement tactics meant for branding – and the thought isn’t unfounded.

In early August, an outside company released how its latest marketing scheme made use of Twitch’s donation alerts to get a branded sound bite played on a streamer’s channel. Their video showed multiple instances of a Twitch account surprising streamers by donating $5 to get a brand’s name and current offerings played on their page.

The idea was immediately chastised for its way of engaging in promotion and sponsorship for a company without consulting or locking a paid deal with the individual streamer. However, despite inevitable backlash, advertisers are still trying out new methods of outreach.

The Amazon-owned streaming site has been incorporating more ways to engage audiences with branding promotions and advertisements.

Amazon solutions for ads have directly integrated Twitch channels and streamers in the past.

“Twitch video and display media, as well as new Twitch audiences, are now available for inclusion in Amazon Advertising campaigns, and Amazon audiences are available for inclusion in Twitch campaigns,” Amazon wrote. “We’re delighted to share that we are combining Twitch’s hard-to-reach and highly engaged audiences with Amazon Advertising’s integrated full-funnel advertising offering.

Days after Amazon announced it had added Twitch to its Amazon Advertising portfolio, the streaming site announced it was testing out mid-roll ads for channels. This too was vehemently criticized by everyone from Twitch streamers to viewers, and the idea was later abandoned.

Twitch has been experimenting with new ad campaigns that have drawn ire from viewers and streamers.

A feature that hasn’t gone back to the drawing board has been the picture-in-picture mode for ads that minimizes and mutes the main stream while playing a fullscreened promotion. This too was received with angst from viewers.

Twitch’s latest attempt at finding a more engaging way to introduce ads to its reported 17.5 million daily users has, again, created ire from its partnered content creators.

As Amazon and Twitch continue to create advertising solutions for its highly-valuable and impressionable audiences, the platform’s streamers will be on the lookout for more marketing tactics that look to benefit off of their communities.
