‘Internet Killed Television’ Couple Charles and Alli Trippy Have Separated

Official YouTuber bummer of the month: Charles and Alli Trippy of “Internet Killed Television” fame are separating.

In a video titled “We Need to Talk” posted yesterday to his CTFxC YouTube channel — which has also served as the five-year home to the pair’s “Internet Killed Television” series documenting their coupled life — a downbeat Charles gave viewers the sobering news:

“Over the past couple of months, Alli and I have just not been getting along. We just haven’t been happy … We have been arguing a lot more than normal. And it’s just been getting worse and worse, and we’ve just becoming more and more unhappy and stressed out, both of us. So we’ve both decided that it was unfair for both of us to keep moving this direction if we’re both unhappy and stressed. So we decided that we will be separating.”

In the comments section to the separation video, Charles left sentiments maintaining that there was amicability in the breakup and requesting respect from their followers:

Shortly after posting the video, Charles tweeted:

Today, the day after, another vlog with only Charles as well as a new outro and song also sans Alli, was uploaded to his CTFxC channel. Charles has confirmed he will continue to update his CTFxC channel with new videos, although it’s unclear if Alli will be making any future appearances. He’s also said that Alli will keep her YouTube channel, Alli, current with videos as well. Echoing his sentiments in the comments section to his “We Need to Talk” video, Charles tweeted today:

Charles and Alli (née: Speed) married on Nov. 20, 2011 in Sarasota, Florida. Their nearly 4-million-viewed wedding day vlog, “Internet Love Story,” is their longest at nearly 34 minutes, and the hashtag #CTFxCWedding was the second most popular trending topic worldwide on the same day. The couple share a Guiness World Record for most consecutive videos uploaded to YouTube. Charles, a YouTube vlogger since 2005, has three active YouTube channels including CTFxC (Charles Trippy Friends Core) and is also the bassist for rock band We The Kings.
