Bashurverse, BabyLegs, KeemStar Sexual Misconduct YouTube Controversy: What Went Wrong?

Keemstar offered his opinion on the matter here:

Here’s a breakdown of what was said:

  • An “anonymous” tip came in on the r/dramaalert subReddit about two months ago regarding Bashurverse’s arrest
  • Keemstar reached out to Bashurverse for comment, Bashur initially denied it to Keemstar  and then went and broke the story first
  • SkyDoesMinecraft allegedly first discovered the arrest information
  • As a parent, Keemstar was furious that a YouTuber who works in Minecraft has an apparent sexual history with “children”
  • Keemstar was going to make a documentary about it, but felt harassed and put it on the backburner
  • Bashurverse has allegedly threatened to sue other YouTubers who know the truth
  • Keemstar planned to stick with the story in spite of police, lawsuit threats

Bashurverse responded by attempting to have Keemstar’s videos flagged and removed — something that Keemstar’s MCN Machinima  capitulated to at one point, as revealed by this tweet from Bashurverse:

Later on it appeared that Machinima was flagging re-uploads of Bashur’s videos that he posted and then took down, as evidenced by this telling image:

Apparently, Keemstar did not take kindly to this and himself or one of his followers allegedly published not only Bashurverse’s mom’s phone number, but started making menacing comments on Bashurverse’s phone’s text wall as well:

And then, the accusations started coming out of the woodwork from other underaged girls.
