Avoiding the hustle and bustle of one of the busiest airports in the world, Sam Chui recently kicked back and experienced the relaxing private suite at the Los Angeles International Airport.

Popular YouTuber Sam Chui has grown a following on the back of his regular vlogs where he shares some of the most extraordinary traveling experiences on the planet.

From private jets to his very own room on various flights, the YouTuber has seen and done it all, but even he was floored throughout his first visit to a private suite at LAX.

In 2018, the United Nations World Tourism Organization ranked LAX as the fourth busiest airport in the world.

Rather than having to make his way through the crowds at the airport, upon departing the first leg of his trip, the YouTuber was immediately greeted when landing in Los Angeles. 

A chauffeur escorted him out of a private exit and over towards a vehicle of their own. From there, he was driven across the airport and dropped off at his very own private suite to pass the time between flights.

With a massage table already set up before he stepped foot in the door, the YouTuber was clearly taken aback by just how over the top the experience truly was.

Ramping things up a notch further, his personal escort explained how his custom suite happened to be the only one that featured an outdoor area as well.

The suite comes packed full of amenities from snacks to a larger menu of freshly cooked food, and even a fully stocked fridge with soft drinks and alcoholic beverages alike.

“This is beyond the next step of travel really,” the YouTuber explained as he highlighted a number of candy dispensers on the wall. “The privacy is the best part. I don’t think I could go back to any airline lounge after experiencing something on this level.”

Taking a private shuttle to board his next business class flight after getting a massage, he steered clear of any crowds once again as he was taken directly to his seat thanks to the unreal experience.

The private suite even comes with a complimentary massage to work out some tension between flights.

The private suite will run travelers a pretty penny as those looking to enjoy the higher-end experience will first need to become members of PS Club. The annual membership comes in at $4,500 per person before frequent flyers are then able to pay the $3,150 to actually book in a one-time use of the private suite.

Given the YouTuber’s reaction to the facilities on offer though, it seems like an extraordinary way for the wealthy traveler to avoid crowds at any cost.

Dream responds to #dreamwaswrong trending on Twitter

YouTuber and Minecraft content creator Dream has finally responded to the #dreamwaswrong trend on Twitter, using his DreamWasTaken account to assert he disavows the behavior displayed by some of his fans.

Dream and his cohorts, including known creators like Tommyinnit and GeorgeNotFound, are incredibly popular on YouTube and beyond thanks to an infinitum of Dream Team videos and the Dream SMP server.

While that level of fame means possibility for mainstream collaboration with the likes of superstar TikTok influencer Addison Rae, it also comes with downsides. Notably, #dreamwaswrong began trending on Twitter as fans blamed Dream for encouraging his stans, some of whom are prone to producing inappropriate fan art involving minors.

As critics explain, Dream’s love for his fans supposedly equates to egging on the ways they express their fandom — thereby supporting the production of “CP.” In response, he explained: “I’ve said this before but don’t ship creators that are uncomfortable with it, and especially not minors. It’s disgusting to draw NSFW stuff about minors or anyone that hasn’t explicitly said it’s fine.”

After addressing the drama directly, by reaffirming that “NSFW stuff about minors” is distasteful, Dream continued on to explain why it’s unfair to misgeneralize his role in the production of such content.

In a follow-up tweet aimed at defending his support for his fans, the Minecraft YouTuber said, “With 16 million subscribers that’s 1 out of every 480 people IN THE WORLD that are subscribed. There’s bound to be thousands of terrible people, but there’s also bound to be millions of great ones. If you’re looking for hate or disgusting stuff, you’ll find it. Stop looking.”

As he shows, boasting 16 million subscribers on YouTube means that “out of every 480 people in the world,” at least one is a fan of Dream’s content. That is an enormous quantity of supporters, and it should not be surprising that there are “thousands of terrible people” within the millions of fans.

This sentiment appears to be echoed by his fans — as many have resurfaced earlier videos showing that the content creator has never specifically encouraged the creation of relationship fanfiction or “CP.”

It remains unclear how satisfied people are with Dream’s response, but the overall sentiment appears to be positive. While it feels unreasonable to expect a creator to be wholly responsible for the actions of their audience, this incident does provide a cautionary tale.

Considering this “disgusting” group of Dream’s stans, the prevailing community critique remains: If you are an influencer, you have some obligation to directly and quickly curtail negative behavior by those you influence.
