From Alfie Deyes To Jeffree Starr: 9 Of The Most Scandalous YouTube Feuds Of All Time
Those vloggers can get shady.
When you think of YouTubers, you think of positivity and friendship – that’s kind of their vibe, right? But turns out these vloggers are just as human as other celebs and, well, us. They have beef with their fellow video makers over everything from diss tracks to cash dollars.
On that note, here are the vloggers who’ve been involved in some major feuds.
But first, learn a lesson from Connor Frants'a social media do's and don'ts....
1. Alfie Deyes vs. Velvet Ghost
After Gabby Lindley blasted vloggers who joined YouTube competitor Vessel, a portal charging subscribers to watch content, Alfie was not impressed. Although he hadn’t joined himself, many of his friends had including Tanya Burr, Caspar Lee and Marcus Butler, and he took offense to Gabby branding them ‘greedy’. He tweeted at her: “I’m not going to be using the site Vessel, but there are much more mature ways to explain your views. #ThinkBeforeYouTweet”. Needless to say neither Alfie or Zoe Sugg have really been seen with Gabby since.
2. JAKE PAUL VS. ALISSA VIOLET
After the pair broke up, Alissa was shunned from the Team 10 house and suddenly they were both accusing each other of cheating. After they started dating new people things seemed to fizzle out until Jake’s assistant, Gabby Hanna, accused Alissa of assaulting her.
Alissa then shot back and alleged that Jake had physically assaulted and emotionally abused her including spitting at her and pushing her. Following the allegations she collaborated with RiceGum on a diss track and got super close to Jake’s brother in a video. Yikes.
3. Jeffree Starr vs. Kat Von Dee
After Jeffree was accused of using racial slurs in his videos, Kat announced on her Instagram and Facebook that she wanted nothing more to do with her former bestie. She said: “After years of making excuses for, and rationalizing Jeffree's inappropriate behaviour (including, promoting drug use, racism, and bullying) I can no longer hold my tongue after recent events.”
She then accused him of not paying her friend for the design work he did on Jeffree’s makeup line. The make-up vlogger denied all accusations and accused Kat of having “malicious underlying intent” and said: "We were friends for ten years, and you just never know — you might wake up one morning and have your best friend backstab you in front of the entire world and online.”
4. THE DOLAN TWINS VS. JAKE PAUL
After Jake claimed that the twins were only famous because of him, they were not here for it. They hit back at their former friend and insisted their videos had being doing super well before they even met him and shaded him for falling out with so many YouTubers.
They said: "There's something in his book that says something how he, like we were his 'test experiments' and he flew us out to L.A. — which he didn't. He did let us stay with him and we made content with him and all that stuff. We had fun. Jake was a great friend of ours and I still believe the kid is a good person, deep down. There are some things that I've seen that I don't agree with. He's said some things privately to people that I know about us that I just don't know why he said it."
5. SIMPLYNESSA15 VS. TANA MONGEAU
In 2016 these two were pretty tight but cut to a year later and Vanessa slammed Tana claiming that she promoted positivity even though her fans were bullies. Tana replied that she couldn’t control her followers sparking Vanessa to write a snarky comment on Tana’s Instagram with Bella Thorne.
6. Jake Paul vs. Logan Paul
The brothers walked a fine line of pranking each other until Jake took it a step too far (in his brother’s eyes) when he posted a picture of Logan with a missing tooth, enlarged nose and wearing Jake’s merch, on a billboard on a busy road in LA.
His brother was NOT chuffed and claimed it would hurt his movie roles. Though tbh that would probs be his own YouTube vid drama, eh. He continued the beef by filming a diss track with Jake’s ex Alissa and pretended to snog her in the video.
7. THEGABBIESHOW VS. RICEGUM
Jake Paul’s assistant Gabbie posted a video, in 2017, of RiceGum twisting her arm, scratching her and stealing her phone. He hit back making fun of her and denied all accusations.
8. EVA GUTOWSKI, TEALA DUNN & SIERRA FURTADO VS. MEREDITH FOSTER
The Savage Squad hit a massive bump in the road in 2017 when one member was seemingly left out in the cold when Tea, Sierra and Eva all posted pics on Sierra’s birthday sans Eva. AWKWARD. Twitter lost it but Eva simply stated: "Sometimes friends just go through stuff and leave you and you're left to figure it out for yourself and move on.”
9. TANA MONGEAU VS. IDUBBBZ
In an awkward turn of events, Tana bashed Ian Carter for apparently using a racial slur and then told him to kill himself on Twitter. But it turned out that she had done the same. She accused iDubbbz is forcing her to say the awful word at a meet and greet but he whipped out the receipts to prove that wasn’t true.
