Pokémon community is imploding
There's a lot of different individual drama implosions going on within the Pokemon YouTube community but the main one I've had the time to dive into is what's surrounding the YouTuber, King Nappy (unfortunately was well into DFE mode before I even figured out about this).Surprisingly no, just some prominent tubers.
Nappy emotionally blackmailed another YouTuber, Hoodlum Callum (formerly HoodlumScrafty) into a romantic relationship when Callum was 16 years old (Nappy was 21 at the time). Callum give his account of the relationship in this tweet. GameBoyLuke, another semi-popular YouTuber in the Pokemon community, corroborated Callum's experience by sharing his own experience with Nappy who tried to force him into a relationship as well. Luke told Nappy he wasn't interested and Nappy responded by ostracizing Luke from the Pokemon community he was tight with on YouTube. Luke's account of Nappy can be found here as well as DMs between the two here. Both are not the only ones sharing stories of Nappy acting inappropriately with them but they are the two biggest names.
Nappy's response to these accusations was to go on Twitch and attempt the Kevin Spacey defense. He further denied the claims against him and immediately went into DFE, privating his Instagram, deleting his Twitter, and eventually deleting the stream where he attempted to bullshit his way out of this mess. Someone managed to get the Twitch stream before he pulled it down and you can watch it here:
If I get the chance tonight, I'll try fleshing this out more and include the other accounts from people like Trickywii (who has a hilarious account of how Nappy tried to hide his relationship with Callum from another Youtuber) and StormyKingdra (kind of a side actor in all of this). Sorry if this is still hard to parse together, just kind of heard about all this delicious drama.
EDIT: Like I said, the Nappy drama is NOT the only piece of sex drama going on right now in the community. Another PokeTuber, MudkipMama, has a ton of shit going on with her flirting with young YouTubers like Patterrz. I think there's at least four different drama shitstorms going on here so there's a lot to try and catch up on. I hope this at least is a decent intro to people who don't feel like watching the YouTube vid.
