Keemstar particularly came under fire after Ethan Klein (H3H3 YouTube channel host) made a three-part video series unveiling some of Keemstar's past transgressions. These included doxing people as well as falsely accusing others of serious crimes.
It seems like it all may be catching up to Keemstar, and he's decided to cut his losses. The host of DramaAlert channel is stepping away from the world of video content, here's everything you need to know after Keemstar announced his retirement from YouTube.
Keemstar retires from YouTube
After the video from H3H3 exposing Keemstar went viral to the tune of 7+ million views, G-Fuel dropped Keemstar from sponsorship. Though this is not even the worst of Keemstar's transgressions.
His interviews with Etika, the former YouTuber who, in 2019, tragically took his own life, shed a terrible light on Keemstar's character. Etika famously suffered from bipolar disorder, and Keemstar took advantage of his manic mental states and used it for content.
Now less than one year after H3H3's video exposing Keemstar, the host of DramaAlert is finally stepping away from the internet. While he does not give a full explanation, we can suspect it is largely in part due to his controversy and the trouble it can make for securing and keeping sponsorship deals.
