Just like any regular celebrity, YouTube stars aren’t exempt from scandals — and there’s been quite a few Internet sensations who’ve totally shocked us. Check out some of the biggest YouTube scandals and surprises right here!
If you’ve been on Twitter this week, you probably noticed #SaveMarinaJoyce as one of the top trends. It all began when Marina Joyce, 19, a beauty blogger from England, posted one of her regular vlogs on July 22…but fans noticed that something seemed off. Not only was she sporting light bruises on her body, but she seemed totally distant and distracted! Luckily, the teenager confirmed that things were “totally okay,” although she did admit something was “going on” she couldn’t talk about just yet.
And who could forget the PrankVsPrank couple, Jesse Wellens and Jeana Smith, who announced on their Youtube account in May that they were taking a break from their relationship — and then things TOTALLY spiraled out of control. Days later, Jesse revealed that he had a secret, long-lost daughter! “It’s a long and crazy story,” he admitted. “I need to get off my chest and find her.” YIKES!
For some YouTube stars, the situations were very sad and scary. PewDiePie revealed that his landlord evicted him for having gay sex, and Calum McSwiggan admitted that he was brutally beaten outside a gay club in West Hollywood — absolutely disgusting.
