Joint Socials: Youtube Instagram / Twitter / Facebook / Podcast

H3H3, also known as Ethan & Hila Klein, are a popular married-duo on Youtube, in which they upload commentary reactions to their channel. Their reactions often involve skits mocking said subject. Aside from this, the two share and run a podcast called 'H3 Podcast', with many guest features, such as: Post Malone, idubbbz, Jenna Marbles and much more. 

Hila, originally from Israel, married Ethan Klein, who she had met during his Birthright. After Hila's visa ran out, the pair stayed in Israel where they began uploading videos onto Youtube. Currently, they live in L.A.

They first gained mainstream traction when another YouTuber, by the name of Matt Hoss, sued H3 over a video, portraying him in a negative light. The video was initially taken down as a result. H3 won during the dispute, and the video has since been re-uploaded .

 

Controversies:

- Ethan, the most prominent face on the channel, depends on shock value comedy to get by.

One “joke” he made was posted onto their podcast channel. Not only was it offensive and disgusting on Ethan’s part, it was a horribly executed “joke”. 

In his own words: “Appreciate youletting me into your life, and touching you in that special place, only Uncle Bobby touched you. Shouldn’t touch you there. Shame on him.” 

Moment can be found here.

 

- H3 uses the 'N' word and becomes a hypocrite

Back in early 2017, PewDiePie had used the 'N' word in a derogative manner. Ethan responds to this on his podcast, saying he couldn’t defend him. This sounded reasonable, however, an older video of Ethan resurfaced, which shows Ethan using the ‘N’ word, and how much he loved using it.

 

- Ethan casually laughs after being told an old man had died

 

During Phillip DeFranco's interview on the H3 Podcast, Philip brings up Peter Oakley, who was an early creator on YouTube. Ethan smirks, before laughing, prompting DeFranco to call him out.

I'd like to give Ethan the benefit of the doubt that he just happens to be someone who laughs during uncomfortable conversations, but this situation shows how insensitive Ethan can be at times.

Moment found here.

 

- Hila tries to defend Louis C.K. after accusations of sexual assault

While Hila seemingly tries to stay neutral and less lenient, she still says with bias "He's probably going through the worst time possible." This comment coming from Hila was quite shocking. Louis C.K. may be going through a hard time, but the two women who accused him are going through something 10x that. Scrutiny from fans, media, authorities; etc. 

Better Context found here .

Fast forward to Hila's comments here .

I think they can be a little much to be honest. I really like their "Ghost Stories" segments on the live podcasts.

I thought it was ironic that Youtube shut down their podcast once for even mentioning Alex Jones and showing a clip/soundbyte from him. Therefore proving Alex right that there is concerted effort to take down anything related to that particular political spectrum.

I find Hila to be very mousy and very good example of a wallflower. When she does speak it's nice. The origin story was hilarious about how when the economy was bad (2008), they dealt drugs for a week.

I can only watch them rarely because I do think they can be really annoying.

I used to watch every podcast, but they feel like they've been kind of drifting to a weird place lately.

I can't stand the bits they do with Psychic Pebbles where they have him pretend to be a random ignorant fan.

The parts where the intern talk about rap music drama is so incredibly boring.

The last episode had them talking about quicksand porn and butt wiping for an uncomfortably long period of time. I skipped a lot of it.

I want more interesting content and less gross out humor personally.

I think they're a cute couple and I enjoyed the story on how they met and how Ethan proposed lmao.

I also don't like how they have fans call in so they can answer questions about "memes" to win a phone (I guess it's for the sponsorship?) and how Ethan abuses the soundboard and how they always ask guests now about their wiping technique. 

But I miss their old days when they made fun of prank channels, they were so much funnier back then to be honest. 

While they can say things I find cringy or disagree with, I think they’re overall good people. I’ve liked the moments when they used their fame to bring light to something, like the CSGO lotto video or Joey Salads racist social experiment. 

I miss Vape Nation and their old sketches too. They hardly post on their main channel now. I guess their focus is just on the podcast and the clothing line these days.

I believe Ethan mentioned multiple times that they've abandoned their main channel for the time being because has been really struggling with depression, and can't create the same magic their old content had because his heart isn't in it. 

I'm pretty sure he talked at length about it with Philip DeFranco, and Bob Saget??? Yeah. I don't mind the podcast, but I do miss the ghost stories section, I always found it hilarious.

Used to be a HUGE fan of them but I've been unsubbed from them a couple of months ago. It was around the time when Roseanne got cancelled and Ethan didn't read much about the situation and was blaming it on SJWs when that wasn't really the case. A lot of people called him out on it and were unsubbing. I just had enough of him. He needs to read up more on the situation before giving his opinion. I also can't stand watching the podcasts because I find he interrupts the guests a lot. It's a shame because they really used to be my favorites.

Crazy to see them on here but not entirely surprised. They really have been falling off lately. I think most of that falls on Ethan and his depression. I used to watch every podcast but lately I've just ignored them completely. They overuse formulas and I think they're stagnating.

 

Also, I feel like I'm being nitpicky/snobby but Hila's clothing line isn't um...great. It was mentioned that she got rejected from fashion school so she decided to start her own clothing line. Like....in my personal opinion, whatever fashion school rejected her probably had valid reasoning....idk maybe I'm just rude. :alpacaworry:

I used to adore the old h3 sketches (around the time before vape nation was released, though some of the videos after that are classics like the medium one) so I think its fair enough if they have a break. There's no point pumping out shitty content nobody will enjoy, so if they are creatively stagnated, fair dos. But for me, the appeal of 'old h3' was that the production (I mean the camera work and that) was pretty poor but they comedy was golden, which made them feel more 'homemade' and heartfelt. Also Hila hasn't shown up in videos for a while, and she was a perfect straight man to Ethan's over the top act, and made for some classic jokes (waddup hila kleiners!)

Thisssss.

Although I'm still subscribed, Ethan really missed the mark by standing on his soapbox about the Roseanne cancellation. It's funny because people like him will talk shit about "SJWs," but don't even have the decency to read more into the situation before commenting about it. I think he's learned from this and hasn't done anything like it since, but it left a really bad taste in my mouth for a while.

And his interruption of his guests and videos during his podcast is hella irritating. I can't be the only one that yells, "JUST LET THEM TALK!!!" to my computer screen .-.

I loved them during their golden years when they did less political and mainstream topics and were more relatable and purely just trying to make us laugh. But at the same time I can understand why they're at the point they are now - podcasts and hardly uploading on main channel.

YouTube for the most part destroyed their main YouTube channel's income by demonetizing all their videos. This made Ethan super stressed and not motivated to make videos for a while. And since the podcast took off successfully it was very easy for him to fall back on it and let the main channel get dusty. I can totally understand his situation. Personally I don't watch many of the podcasts these days unless they have a guest on I like or they're talking about something I'm interested in. The only problem for me is that I'm generally not interested in a lot of the topics they cover these days. I still think they're great people.

I think on top of their podcasts being successful, doesnt twitch pay them to be on there? 

iI also want to add a point that they're hilarious home made looking videos were at a time where they could still "punch up". Ethan mentioned before that because they've gotten so big it's not often/easy to punch up without the possibility of looking like big bullies.

i think rn they're probably not in the best place to make videos. if i recall hila's father recently passed and thats why she wasn't on the podcast for a few weeks. if ethan's been struggling with his depression as well recently then im sure the both of them aren't going to be returning to the main channel for a while

I miss their older videos. I watch their podcast highlights, but because they dont really say much about their behind-the-scenes, ive not a clue why they havent uploaded much on their main channel this year. The podcast is a bit repetitive but the guests can be absolutely amazing.

 

Mad respect to them though for being the voice of reason when it comes to copyright issues on YouTube. Remember the FUPA fund?

I think JonTron had mentioned on the podcast that he takes long breaks from YouTube and everything is still okay when he does upload and Ethan was stoked to learn he could take a long break from YouTube and still have viewers to come back to.
