I was talking about this.Sam never said anything directly about ethan iirc, MDE fans were ripping on him for the mind=blown copy ethan made and the fact that Ethan shamelessly copied the KSTV format for his reaction videos. Ethan accused sam of organizing a raid on the h3 subreddit and also said Sam was bad mouthing him or something and Sam just responded cordially and ethan immediately backtracked.
Also worth noting is sam claims in a fairly recent video that years ago when the h3h3 channel was still smaller than MDE, a mutual friend of sam and ethan got them in touch and they played Dota 2 together, and the whole time ethan was sperging out and incessantly spouting sam hyde memes. I can't remember specifically what video and I don't have a gumroad subscription to sam right now but I think it was in a hydewars.
With the above being said, keep in mind that sam hyde is a mentally deranged dumpster fire of a human being and I wouldn't necessarily take anything he says earnestly.
Sam's long since peaked.
