YouTuber ‘Mariale’ has been accused of stealing content after telling a dramatic story that was first posted by a smaller YouTuber called ‘HeyParis’ – and the feud just keeps escalating.

Mariale is a huge Venezuelan YouTuber based in Los Angeles with 13.4 million subscribers on her main channel. She is known for her beauty and fashion content, which she publishes in both Spanish and English, and often collaborates with YouTuber SSSniperWolf.

On Wednesday November 11, Mariale posted a ‘Storytime’ to her English-language channel which appeared to copy, word-for-word, another video from back in 2017 which was posted by HeyParis, making it seem as though it happened to her.

The original story by HeyParis recalled a time during which she was an employee at Sephora when her co-worker ruined someone’s wedding makeup. The video used the title, “Sephora employee ruins wedding,” which Mariale also used for her own upload.

Marielle has more than 13 million subscribers on her Spanish channel.

Paris quickly called Mariale out in a video titled, “YOUTUBER MARIALE STOLE MY ENTIRE STORYTIME WORD FOR WORD”, claiming that she was not given credit anywhere until Twitter users began to notice the story wasn’t hers. Paris said, “She is now monetizing and making revenue off of my story and my experience.”

Mariale initially deleted the video and stated she had done so “since some of you weren’t liking the idea of retelling other stories.” But shortly after, she posted her own full response to Paris, admitting that she had not asked for permission to use the story.

However, she defended herself, saying “the biggest thing that [Paris] says is that I never gave her credit, and that is completely false.”

She went on to explain that she had given her credit in the description box of the video, and felt that her viewers would recognize the story wasn’t hers, because she decided to name herself “London” while telling the story.

And the plot still thickens, as Paris has now uploaded another video calling Marielle a liar: “You need to take accountability and the people around you need to help you realize that lying is not smart when receipts are available. I don’t wanna keep going back and forth… but I will also continue to stand up for myself when people try and lie on my name for something that they know they did.”


Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
