Let’s cut to the chase, YouTube is full of great things, but face it, it wouldn’t be as interesting without its drama. Every day, Youtubers document a large portion of their lives. It’d be silly to think that their lives are full of sunshine and rainbows.
From YouTubers shading each other to beauty guru drama, life can get messy! In addition, we all (their subscribers and viewers) become a part of it, so YES, we need to keep up, honey! Follow me as I spill some hot tea about 10 YouTube beefs of all time!
#1 Laura Lee vs Blndsundoll4mj
The drama regarding Laura Lee is a recent and big one because she was called out over a racist Tweet from a few years ago. Not only did that put her under fire, made her lose thousands of subscribers (and it continues!), and got dropped by large makeup companies (Ulta Beauty, Morphe, etc.) She fueled the fire by uploading an apology video that was clearly dramatized and fake, which made her seem ingenuine. As if that wasn’t already bad enough, another popular YouTuber named Trisha Paytas (Blndsundoll4mj) called out Laura Lee in a video regarding her fake apology, fake tears, and inability to own up to her mistakes.

#2 Kat Von D vs Jeffree Star
In another explosive drama, Jeffree Star throws major shade at his former friend, Kat Von D over her choice of not vaccinating her baby. He posts a hilarious photo of himself, which states, “Here is an actual picture of Kat Von D's baby when it found out they weren't getting vaccinated”. Specifically, this caption was regarding Kat Von D stating that she intends on raising a vegan child, without vaccination.

#3 Alissa Violet vs Jake Paul
From being a cute couple to becoming salty toward each other, Alissa Violets and Jake Paul goes head on head on the internet. After kicking Alissa out of the team house, he claims that he wants nothing to do with her because she was cheating on him. Alissa fired back by claiming that he was hooking up with other women, and that Jake was using her to grow his money and fame. As an audience, we’ll never really know who is telling the truth, so, whose side are you taking?
Here it is:
#4 Alissa Violet vs Tessa Brooks
In a conflict, you would think that your best friend would take your side over anything, right? In another explosive drama with Alissa Violets, Tessa Brooks sides with Jake Paul instead of her own best friend during a previous feud, which caused stray of betrayal and broke their friendship apart. As if things couldn’t get any worse, Tessa drops a diss track regarding her being VERY close to Jake Paul.

#5 Jake Paul vs Logan Paul
Siblings argue and have fun all the time! Not with Jake Paul and Logan Paul, though. After a series of harmless pranks on each other, Logan believes that Jake went too far when he plastered Logan’s face on a billboard, which had Logan have on Jake’s merch, his nose was enlarged, and a tooth was missing. Logan was unhappy with this because he felt that it would affect his future opportunities in movie roles, so he drops a diss track regarding Jake.

#6 Kim Kardashian vs Jeffree Star
In another feud, Jeffree Star shades Kim Kardashian by stating that her new powder contour set looked like chalk. Although her makeup brand was insulted by another huge beauty guru and entrepreneur (Jeffree Star of course), she chose to be the bigger person by defending his side and not taking offense from his comments.
