Twitter // Twitch // Youtube // Instagram
Anisa Jomha/Raihnbowkidz is a 23 year old streamer who is currently dating Youtuber iDubbbz. Prior to being on Youtube, she mainly streamed League of Legends on Twitch. However, she mainly became popular due to her being a "titty streamer" and was shouted out by other popular streamers like Gross Gore. If interested, more about her past as a Twitch streamer can be read about in this Kotaku article that she was featured in. Currently, she has her own Youtube channel now and still streams.

Chris Ray Gun (mentioned above in the Sky Williams drama section) is a Youtuber who Anisa frequently talks to while on stream.Anisa has talked shit and been rude about Chris's girlfriend, Laci Green to him while on streamCalled her a "f*ucking c*nt," asked if he's eaten her ass, made comments about her vagina, asks if she's pegged him, comments that she would make a great porn star... etc.Overall just very awkward, intrusive questions about his sex life and girlfriend that even he seems to eventually feel awkward talking about on streamCompilation of her talking to himLiked a tweet saying how strange it was that Laci was dating ChrisMore weird sexual harassment (VOD)Revealed on stream that she has had sex in an elevator to him, while asking him what the weirdest place he'd had sex wasWeird tweets (????????)As of May 2018, apparently they haven't talked much in the last few months... :thinkingfaceemoji:Possibly cheated on her ex boyfriend, Akaadian (Matt) with iDubbbz (Ian)
Akaadian is a professional LoL streamer who was a few years younger than Anisa. Towards the end of their relationship, they both went to Twitchcon togetherAs a side note, the con took place in San Diego from Sept. 30th to October 2ndAround this time was Akaadian and Anisa's one year anniversary, which she seemed excited for in late SeptemberPicture of them together before ending the relationshipWhile they were at Twitchcon, Anisa apparently booked an extra night at the hotel by accident and was alone, and invited iDubbbz to hang out with herDuring this time, Anisa says that she had been talking to Ian for a while and that Akaadian knew about thisLater says that Akaadian and her hadn't been in a relationship for a while, however there are tweets showing that he was hanging out with her up until October 6, 2016People said on one of her streams that Akaadian claimed Anisa had cheated on him, but Anisa refuted this and said that it would be "completely unwarranted" for him to say thatOn Oct 25th and 27th, Akaadian tweeted that he wouldn't be streaming for a while because he was in a "bad place" mentally and said that he "hated girls"On Nov. 4th, Akaadian said on stream that he was upset and very angry but didn't give many specifics about what he was so angry aboutLater revealed that he had blocked Anisa while on stream to his fans, which a fan later told Anisa on TwitterAdmitting to wanting guys who will spend money on her (essentially, a sugar daddy)Discord convo where she talks about thisHas seemingly broken up with past boyfriends if they were too cheap for her"Cheat Sheet" and timeline of her past relationships (courtesy of lolcow)Slut Shaming
Despite being a former titty streamer, she has slut shamed both Tana Mongeau and Zoie BurgherClaims it was more skin than she ever showed on stream, despite clips of her existing where she's unbuttoning her shirt to reveal her bra Now claims that her titty streaming days were all just trolling and a "social experiment"Has called other girls sluts on Twitter, and overall just seems very derogatory towards other womenRelationship Troubles With iDubbbz (Ian) (Dec/Jan 2018)

Tries to emulate Ian's humor to appeal to his fans, but is incredibly basic with her posts and personalityAccording to her, the holocaust was justified because they experimented on people and made "groundbreaking discoveries" during itVODIt is widely known that the Nazi experiments did not produce legitimate results. Most notes taken by Nazi scientists were "gibberish and disorganized," experiments were done only because the Nazis had the ability to out of sadistic desire to harm people, and the small discoveries made could not be verified due to the experiments being so cruel.source, sourcePretends to be good friends with Maxmoefoe and seems to try to emulate how he talks/his personalityIan has called her "female Maxmoefoe" in a Content Cop beforeAn anon on lolcow, who was a former fan talked about how on stream, she admitted that her and Max had only talked once when they went on the trip to Hawaii togetherTries to compare "cracker" to an offensive slur for Aboriginals, and attempts to play her own race card for legitimacyMaxmoefoe's girlfriend, Kat, calls her out on this and publicly shames her Fake Body-Positive

mahoushojo added a topic in Online PersonalitiesASMR YoutubersAnyone down to discuss ASMR youtubers? I didn’t see any topics for this kind of thing and personally listen to ASMR sometimes, so I was wondering what other people thought.
Who are your favorites, who you wish was more popular, who you don't like, etc... Or talk about drama that has happened, ASMRist beef, or how you feel about sexualized ASMR and such.
Feel free to talk about more people than who I included in the first post ^-^ I just included some of the more famous/controversial people to help start off discussion. And if you have anything that you think I should add to this post or some other drama, please tell me!
EDIT: Forgot to write definition of ASMR lol (also watching a video by anyone I listed here is a pretty good demonstration of what most videos are like)
Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a colloquial term used for an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine. It has been compared with auditory-tactile synesthesia.
Youtube Channel // Instagram // Twitter // Reddit AMA // Reddit Account // Facebook
Real name is Taylor. Started doing ASMR sometime in 2015, and is close to one million subscribers. Mainly known for makeup rp's and various types of trigger videos.
Recently was involved in drama where her Ex-Boyfriend (named Matthew) hacked her Youtube channel and posted a creepy, very personal video telling her he loved her. Afterwards, she took down the video and posted a response to the video, explaining what happened. She mainly got criticized for doing the response video in ASMR and excusing the creepy, controlling behavior displayed by her ex.Ex Boyfriend's Video // Her ResponseHas been criticized for having more subs than she deserves, which is largely due to being shouted out by people like Pewdiepie and other famous Youtubers reacting to ASMR videos.--
Youtube (Asmr) // Youtube (Vlogs) // Instagram // Twitter // Facebook
Real name is Maria. From Russia and moved to the United States. Is (the first?) ASMR youtuber to reach one million subscribers. Mainly known for her voice.
Released some erotic ASMR voice clips years agoSometimes overdramatic in her vlogsSource: https://www.reddit.com/r/nsfwasmr/comments/4vp1yq/so_gentlewhispering_made_a_few_erotic_whisper/ --
Youtube // Twitter // Facebook // Blog // Patreon
Real name is Paul. Typically does the "really out there" ASMR videos where he plays certain characters inspired by Lovecraftian lore, but is mainly known as the guy who put microphones in potatoes.
Has said that women shouldn’t be angry that they’re getting dick picks if they put their body on display.Suggested HeatherFeather and GentleWhispering should collab on a video with him, where they both fondle his balls. He then made other derogatory remarks about them, as only being after fame and attention and implied that they would be willing to do it due to them having done more sexual ASMR videos in the past. Although this was for a video about a character who is supposed to be sexist, it came off as very creepy.Gallery of the receipts: http://imgur.com/a/Ju5ksReddit Thread about the Drama: https://www.reddit.com/r/asmr/comments/3pju92/discussion_is_ephemeral_rift_a_bully_posting/?sort=confidence--

One of the original ASMRists. First popularized the "sk" sound. Has pretty varied videos, ranging from makeup ASMR to roleplays to experimental stuff.
Was originally questioned a lot for the strange camera angles in her videos. Later, she revealed that she had a problem with her neck and had to get surgery on it, thus explaining the weird angles.Didn't make videos for a while, and very recently stated on twitter that she felt unsafe and that bad things had happened, but she couldn't talk about them. She confirmed that she would return to doing ASMR soon, though.Source: https://twitter.com/HeathFeathASMR/status/888857631628177409--

ASMRist mainly known for his tapping videos. Also the source of the asmr meme "the case makes good sounds"
-Used ASMRist True Binaural's sound without asking in a video, and True Binaural became very angry about it. Raffy apologized, but TB was still mad and drama ensued.Full explanation of events here: https://www.reddit.com/r/asmr/comments/5vgvye/discussion_asmr_drama_raffytaphyasmr_true/--
Youtube // Instagram
Used to have a commentary channel called Sinn0h that he constantly spammed comment sections with self-advertising it. He would make sock puppet accounts on Youtube to like the comment and comment under it as to make it seem like he was more popular.Links to his Sinn0h stuff: Encyclopedia Dramatica // Sinn0h Twitter // Youtube ChannelHad a Patreon during his time as Sinn0h where he would frequently not follow through with rewardsTitles a lot of his ASMR videos with really clickbait-y titles (ex. most of his videos have "YOU WILL FALL ASLEEP" in the title somewhere)--
My personal favorites are probably Ppomo, Trigger Happy ASMR, and ASMRSurge. I think they all put a lot of effort into their content.

mahoushojo added a topic in Online PersonalitiesBoogie2988 / Francis / Steven WilliamsBoogie2988
Youtube // Twitter // Twitch // Instagram
Boogie2988 (Steven Jason Williams) is an American Youtuber mainly known for his gaming-themed videos. He first became popular through his comedy sketch videos based on his “Francis” persona, where he parodied a stereotypical gamer. Boogie is also known for being open about his struggles with childhood abuse, mental illness, and obesity which he occasionally talks about in videos. In 2017, he received gastric bypass surgery and is attempting to lose weight. In 2018, he divorced from his wife of 5 years, Desiree Williams. For a more detailed look at his life, his “Draw My Life” video from 2013 can be found here.
Boogie has long been the subject of controversy. Much of this stems from him talking about subjects he is not qualified to talk about, or trying too hard to have "centrist" viewpoints. There has also been much controversy over whether or not he is emotionally manipulative in his private life towards his wife/friends/girlfriends he's had. He also seems to rant a lot on stream, leading to him having to backpedal on Twitter later.
"I'm not a drama Youtuber!" & Oversharing
Despite saying that he hates drama, he proceeds to talk about it quite a lot, all while trying to stay extremely centrist as to not upset anyoneSeems to make a video about his opinion on every piece of drama that emerges, ranging from Logan Paul to political drama to Twitch "thots"Oversharing his divorceMuch of the divorce process from his wife was overshared on stream, where he would break down on stream over issues in their marriage and talk about their sex lifeBecause of the intensity of these breakdowns, people speculated his wife might be cheating Ultimately, Boogie says that they split amicably and that cheating was not case, though speculation still continues due to Boogie's extreme anxiety throughout itAnita Sarkeesian Issues
Some background on Anita Sarkeesian & his involvement with her:Anita Sarkeesian is a Canadian-American feminist media critic. She is known for creating the Feminist Frequency website and tends to view and critique media through a feminist perspective. During VidCon 2017, Boogie had to share a panel with Anita Sarkeesian on the experience of women online. During this panel, Carl Benjamin (Also known as Sargon of Akkad) and some friends of his sat in the front row. Benjamin is an outspoken critic of Sarkeesian, and went to her event and sat in the front row mainly to annoy her. Sarkeesian ends up saying that she "Hates to give him attention because he's a garbage human being."Throughout this event, Boogie "walks on eggshells" around Sarkeesian, hoping to not upset herMany months later, on the H3H3 podcast, Boogie talks about how Sarkeesian's intense opinions are what led to people getting killed in Charlottesville (???)Clip of him saying this can be viewed hereBoogie also ran into some controversy with his comments on gay marriage being legalized, by saying that the LGBTQ community should:Following this clip and the tweets going viral, Boogie makes comments insinuating that he is going to kill himself and his fans freak outA fan who was possibly concerned about him calls the police to check on Boogie, and Boogie gets angry about it because if he was suicidal, he could commit suicide by copClip of him saying this is hereLucy Foxx Situation (July 2018)
Lucy Foxx is a porn actress who got into a relationship with Boogie after talking with him on an unspecified porn website. During this time, he was still going through his divorce.Video where she discusses her relationship with him is reuploaded hereSummary:Lucy says that things started out good, but quickly went downhill over the course of their relationshipDespite knowing she had to do her camming job, Boogie would guilt trip her into staying with him at his house. Due to staying with him, she had very little income and was barely scraping by.Basically, she felt like her life did not matter whatsoever to Boogie and he expected her to give herself 100% to everything going on in his life, despite them just getting into a relationshipTried to hide his relationship with her due to this divorce and his popularityGave her presents, but were seemingly hand-me-downs or stuff he had gotten for free so he wouldn't have to spend money on herBoogie would apparently scream at her to the point where she was in tears, telling her she didn't mean shit to him, and accusing her of not doing enough for himRefers to girls he has been involved with as his "hookers," which is what initially bothered Lucy enough to talk about thisBoogie apparently told her to "keep his fucking name out of her mouth" and forbid her to talk about their relationshipEven more troubling is that Lucy insinuates that Boogie is with girls even younger than her, since she is 20Proof of them being together:Fans Whiteknighting Him
Whenever Boogie is criticized, his fans seem to instantly jump to his defense and excuse his actions, shielding him from any blameFans frequently use his past childhood abuse and anxiety as excuses for his behavior, and usually try to spin the blame on the person Boogie is emotionally manipulatingBonus Round!
Wished his dead father a happy father's day, despite knowing his dad molested/raped his sister, and seemingly acts like an apologist towards an abuser's actionsLaughing on stream about how an ex-girlfriend who broke up with him died of lung cancer that she developed after being treated for breast cancerClip is hereLater makes a desperate attempt to backpedal on twitter
This topic still needs to be updated, so I'll probably try to add more/fix it up over time.

mahoushojo added a topic in YandevYandereDev / EvaXephon Summary [Updated July 2018]YandereDev / EvaXephon
Social Media Links:
Twitter // Youtube // Twitch // Reddit // Tumblr // Fanfiction Profile // Official Website
YandereDev (Alex Mahan) is the sole developer of the indie PC game, Yandere Simulator. He rose to fame when some of the most famous Lets Players, notably PewDiePie and Markiplier, played some of the early builds of Yandere Simulator around 2014 and 2015. Following the success of the early builds of the game, YandereDev started a Patreon and began to raise money to fund its creation. Currently, he manages all PR for the game, is the sole developer, and outsources his art from volunteers and the Unity store.
Part One: The Man, the Myth, the Martyr Complex
~ The History of EvaXephon ~
Yandev first started out on websites like 4Chan on the /v/ board and Gaia throughout the 2000s, under the alias EvaXephonIn /v/, YanDev became infamous for annoying people and constantly spamming links to his streamsOn Gaia, YanDev was known for posting about his troubles with the opposite sex and using Gaia in a similar way to r/rateme is currently used now.Despite some denying the association between YanDev and EvaXephon, On this same account, Yandev also talked about some of the following lovely subjects: (Note: to view better, please right click and open the image in a new tab)Killing his parentsIncel-like behaviorBlaming girls rejecting him solely on his appearanceComplaining when a girl feels uncomfortable that they can't just have a normal friendshipCalling girls "egotistical" if they reject guys who are not as attractive as they areConsistently talked bad about himself and his appearance, showing he had 0 self confidenceCollection of screenshots with all of these can be found hereFinally, the infamous screenshot from Gaia asking users to rate his appearance:Indie Dev Dreams
Throughout his time on /v/, YanDev expressed interest in becoming a video game developerInitially, YanDev wanted to make a fighting game engine and attempted to program one. However, his dreams were soon shot down by Mike Z, developer of Skullgirls who criticized his coding skillsNext, Yandev attempted to make another game. This time, it was a side-scrolling fighting game called "Lunar Scythe," featured a big tiddy goth girl as its protagonist. It wasn't received well on /v/Finally, Yandev comes up with the idea for Yandere Simulator. While this was initially well-received on /v/, his insufferable attitude drove people away from the projectOther Issues— Misogyny, Involuntary Celibacy, and Fanfiction
Back in his Gaia days, YanDev complained that women these days are too independent and aren't like the girls in anime: Innocent, malleable, pure, and docileScreenshots of him saying this are hereDoesn't like when women have a mind of their own, or have had a sexual encounter prior to dating himWrote various fanfics about underage girls in sexual situations, frequently featuring themes of sexual slaveryDisclaimer: These were written a long time ago and many people write fanfics like this, but I still feel that it's important to mention as it's relevant to some of the stuff he's done.All Fanfics can be found hereSome choice quotes:Self-proclaimed "LA Video Games Babe Examiner"Article he wrote back in 2011:People were talking shit about his antics even back in 2011Part Two: The Yandere Simulator Development Saga
~ Easter Egg Simulator ~
As of June 2018, YanDev currently makes over four thousand dollars on his Patreon a month for a game that has been in development for 4 years with little progress.Recently stated in this video that he views his Patreon as a tip jarEndless Updates & Easter Eggs
YanDev frequently updates and releases builds of the game and makes monthly videos about the game's progress on his Youtube ChannelKeep in mind, the game is four years into development and is not even close to a quarter of the way doneMany of these updates are small bugfixes, or miscellaneous easter egg content added in to appeal to those streaming and making videos on the gameYanDev has frequently included copyrighted content in these easter eggs, and famous developers such as Toby Fox have asked him to remove copyrighted content from YanSim.Some popular easter eggs he has included over the years include:Attack on Titan mode, where giant naked character models walk aroundHairstyles inspired by other mediaThe aforementioned Undertale references, where he included a Sans-like model with Gaster Blasters and played Megalovania as the background musicStolen Assets
Throughout the history of Yandere Simulator, various assets have been taken from other creators without their permissionMaster post of all stolen assets in the gameFamous examples include:Nem Esis designOriginal (Artist) / Stolen / YanDev's ResponseThe original grass texture used in the gameOriginal is by Doug ClaytonVarious MMD assets where the creators state that they are for free-use only, and should not be used to make a profitMuch of Mulberry's (Yandev's current main artist) art appears to be tracedEven if some of the stuff is only referenced and not traced, she never tells what artist she referenced to draw the picture and just seems to pass it off as her own artOverall, really unprofessional of Yandev to be using an artist who traces/heavily references other's work and passing it off as their ownMore can be read about Mulberry on her PULL thread hereEvidence under the spoiler:
Bad Relationship with Volunteers
Frequently complains about volunteers, and seems to rarely be able to collaborate with anyonePast volunteers have given various accounts of bad communicationAn account from a volunteer who found out he was EvaXephonRelationship with the Fandom Throughout Development
At the cost of his own health, YanDev valiantly continues to involve himself more than any other dev in his fandom, despite him not even liking them and calling them just "edgy teens"Unlike other developers that would probably ignore messages about the future of the game or keep quiet about it, Yandev feels that he must read and answer every single email he receives.He claims that reading all of these emails has impeded his development of the game, yet refuses to hire a secretary to help him Overall is incredibly unprofessional when interacting with fans of the games, insulting them to their faces and complaining about them in videosHelp from tinyBuild?
In March 2017, YanDev announces that he's now partnering with TinyBuild, the game developer that developed the popular indie horror game, Hello NeighborHowever, as the months pass, YanDev keeps strangely quiet about the partnership and ignores questions from fans about how tinyBuild is helping the game.Fans questioning the status of tinyBuild and YanSim's partnership, and commenting on the fact that YanDev is being unusually quiet about it:1 // 2 // 3Finally, Yandev reveals in a Patreon post that hints that he got rid of tinyBuild because their optimized code was too hard for him to understand, wanted to give his fans constant instant-gratification, and probably wanted that sweet, sweet Youtube cash from his monthly update videos.YandereSim is a Serious, Complex, Professional Game!
Yandev insists in many videos that he wants YanSim to be taken seriously, despite it including extremely serious content like:Big tiddy milfs strait out of the hentais, and extremely ugly male adultsBeing able to enlarge the breasts of female charactersUsing upskirt panty shots of underage girls as currencyStereotypical anime high schoolAnd ridiculous names such as...Osana Najimi幼なじみ, Literally means childhood friend in JapaneseMidori GurinLiterally means "Green Green"Kizana SunobuIn the same vein as Midori Gurin, literally means "Snob Snob"Megami SaikouLiterally means "Awesome Goddess" Asu RitoLiterally the Japanese pronunciation of "Athlete"Many other names, such as Osoro Shidesu, Muja Kina, and Mida Rana are all literal Japanese adjectives, being osoroshii desu (meaning violent), mujaki na (meaning innocence), and midara na (meaning slutty)For a full analysis of the names and suggestions for better, more accurate names, this Reddit post is very helpful.Eva frequently compares the scale and complexity of the game to games like Persona 5, Hitman, and Breath of the Wild All of these games come from fairly large development studios with a large team working on them.All of these studios kept things professional throughout their development process, unlike YanDev's constant updates and extreme involvement with his fandomMerch for an Unfinished Game, and YanSim Propagating Bad Gaming Industry Practices
Despite the game being nowhere near complete, Yandev has a thriving merch store for the game.Merch store is found hereOverall, YanDev propagates bad practices prevalent in the indie game industry such as:The Early Access ProblemPaying for games before even knowing if the game will even be released at allMaking False Promises and Continually Pushing Back DeadlinesOverall, doing this hurts the reputation of other indie game developers and makes people less likely to support indie gamesPart Three: PR Disaster
~ The End of EvaXephon: Tumbling down, tumbling down, tumbling down ~
RIP Discord (June 2018)
After many months of stress and aggravation over the games development, YanDev starts to crack on DiscordWhen responding to fan questions, YanDev gives rude responses or goes on long rants calling them stupidOverall, gives incredibly unprofessional responses and just shows the extent of how bad it is that he's so involved with the fandom of the game he's creatingYanDev Responding to a Fan 1 // YanDev Responding to a Fan 2For further reading, this tumblr shows many receipts of Yandev's unprofessional interactions with fans on Discordr/Yandere_Simulator: Civil War
YanDev makes a video talking down to his fans (once again) and basically states that "The game will come out when it comes out"Video discussing this is reuploaded hereAfter YanDev releases this video, the official subreddit loses it and YanDev supporters & haters clashFans and those who have paid him money on Patreon become disenfranchised with the lack of meaningful updates, YanDev's rudeness, and the continued pushing back of deadlines like OsanaAn r/subredditdrama post detailing the recent problems with YanSim appears, garnering 1.5k upvotesYanDev declares that the old r/Yandere_Simulator subreddit is unoffical, and creates a new one here, now called r/YandereSimulatorFun Fact 1: The most upvoted post on the new subreddit is "What can we ACTUALLY criticize?"Fun Fact 2: There is now a subreddit called r/BannedFromYanSimThe mods of r/Yandere_Simulator are understandably not happy about thisMod of r/Yandere_Simulator, MadelynNolan1995 explains the situation hereBacktracking
On June 10th and 11th, YanDev posts multiple times on his blog attempting to distance himself from his pastSummary of posts:Instead of owning up to his past mistakes, he seems to just brush them off as him being young and edgyYanDev still displays rude and uncalled for behavior to this very day, which he also seems to ask fans to excuse him for He seems to group all the people who have minor issues with the game in the same group as those on Kiwifarms. Overall, it just seems to show how defensive he is of any type of criticism of his game, and view it as extreme hate.Finally, he expresses interest in creating an "official" subreddit for Yandere Simulator - presumably, one that he has full control over and can easily censor when the need to do so arises.As of July 2018, Yandev's blog has either been archived or deleted probably to prevent people from looking at everything he has said
This post is mainly for documenting new stuff happening in the YanDev saga. Please discuss new developments in the discussion thread here.
