YouTube Stars Who Killed Their Careers In A Matter Of Seconds

Some YouTube stars have squeaky clean records
and ultra-promising futures as top influencers. But on the other hand, there are a massive
amount of YouTube stars whose success has been irreversibly overshadowed by controversy. Whether they were dropped from major deals
or labeled as social outcasts as a result of their actions, here are the YouTube stars
who killed their careers in a matter of seconds. Logan Paul YouTube sensation Logan Paul is notorious
for doing all kinds of extreme stunts, but he crossed the line in December 2017. He reportedly uploaded a video that showed
a deceased body hanging from a tree in Japan, which immediately drew harsh criticism and
worldwide condemnation from fans. “Logan Paul is in some hot water after he
posted video allegedly showing the body of a person who recently committed suicide” He later apologized, saying he was trying
to raise awareness for mental health, but as of early 2018, the stunt still hasn’t quite
blown over. Then, weeks later, Paul uploaded a disturbing
video of himself zapping rats with a taser gun. As a result of Paul’s repeated behavior, YouTube
temporarily suspended his ad revenue, proving everyone was temporarily fed up with his antics. Jeffree Star He’s been blasted for making several racist
comments over the years, and has even feuded with mega-beauty moguls like Kat Von D and
Kim Kardashian. But when Jeffree Star slammed Kylie Jenner’s
Kylie Cosmetics line, it was the final nail in his coffin. Star has feuded with Jenner since at least
2016, but in December 2017, he called out the lip kit queen over her new makeup brush
set, suggesting that her team had been “lazy” and had constructed the brushes out of “animal
hair.” Two months later, in February 2018, Star revealed
that Jenner had taken him off her Kylie Cosmetics press list as a result of his comments. Didn’t anyone tell him that there aren’t any
limits to what the Kardashians can do? PewDiePie While he was already on thin ice after he
used anti-Semitic language and Nazi propaganda in his posts, fans were highly disappointed
when Pewdiepie used the N-word during a live stream in 2017. According to Variety, the vlogger was playing
an opponent in Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds when he yelled the obscenity. On September 12, 2017, he posted an apology
to his channel, saying, “It was something I said in the heat of the
moment.” “I’m not going to make any excuses as to why
it did, because there are no excuses for it.” With a following in the tens of millions,
his comments we’re mostly forgiven by his fanbase. But with mainstream media companies cutting
all ties to Pewdiepie as a result of the two incidents, it seems like the end of his dreams
for a career beyond YouTube. Veronica Rose and Jason Sampson When they uploaded this pic to Twitter in
2017, Veronica Rose and Jason Sampson caught heavy backlash for their hairstyles — especially
because Sampson had captioned the pic: “2 years of Cultural Appropriating.” Users fired back by pointing out the fact
that black people continue to be stigmatized for wearing locs, and others straight-up deemed
the two as racist and insensitive. To make matters worse, they refused to apologize. In a YouTube video, Sampson maintained: “It’s such an absurd thing to be outraged
about.” And according to Teen Vogue, Rose claimed
that she wasn’t racist, but also refused to acknowledge that black people are discriminated
against for wearing locs, which was more than enough of a reason for fans to leave them
in dust. Sam Pepper Sam Pepper has been embroiled in various controversies
over the years: On September 20, 2014, the YouTuber posted a video that showed him pinching
the bottoms of unsuspecting women. The video attracted so much heat, YouTube
removed it just two days later. Despite his claim that the video was a prank,
it sparked a series of sexual misconduct claims against Pepper, which he denied. He was also reportedly banned from attending
Playlist Live, a major networking event for YouTube stars. Though you might think that Pepper would’ve
learned his lesson, in 2015, he uploaded another “prank” where a man was led to believe that
his best friend had been shot in front of him. The stunt saddled him with even more backlash,
including calls to have his channel deleted. As of early 2018, Pepper’s still active on
YouTube, but he’s definitely less popular than he used to be. Patrick Starrr Patrick Starrr has amassed more than 3 million
followers on YouTube, but in August 2017, when he posted an Instagram debuting a curly
afro that he said was inspired by Solange’s chic wedding look, his followers weren’t having
it. According to Business Insider, some fans claimed
that the hairstyle was his attempt at being black, which ultimately led to Starrr issuing
an apology to the black community via Twitter, saying: “I want to apologize for offending
anyone with my hairstyle last night. I wanted to celebrate a beautiful hairstyle
inspired by Solange… I am not in any way claiming to be black. I am Filipino and accepting and I hope we
can all celebrate beauty/diversity all together.” But the damage had already been done. Nicole Arbour Nicole Arbour’s “Dear Fat People” video was
an epic fail. Many of her followers accused her of fat-shaming,
which she brushed off, insisting that it was “not a thing.” But director Pat Mills, who had reportedly
hired Arbour to choreograph his then-upcoming flick, Don’t Talk to Irene, thought otherwise. He even told Zap 2 It that he’d fired Arbour
from the production, saying, “‘Dear Fat People’ is an unfunny and cruel
fat-shaming video that guises itself about being about ‘health.’ It’s fat-phobic and awful.” Though Arbour shot back with a tweet declaring
that she hadn’t been a part of any production, we can guess that it was just her attempt
at saving face. Thanks for watching! Click the Nicki Swift icon to subscribe to
