Twitter is an incredible tool for marketing, communication and hanging out with fans. Unfortunately, Twitter is also a terrible tool for misinterpretation, out-of-context retweets and the possibility that your entire career can be dragged through the dirt with one single reply. So can you imagine the fallout that happened after FouseyTUBE accused Jesse Wellens of drug use?!
Right at the end of July, Jesse decided to tweet out about someone being “so waccckkkkk” – but never explicitly mentioned who it was. Whilst fans speculated that the diss was about FouseyTUBE, a YouTuber Jesse has had problems with in the past, Jesse later confirmed this theory by tweeting; “Don’t worry y’all, this is a ‘social experiment’“, a clear dig at Yousef and his prank channel.
Whilst the argument remained relatively low key and fans mostly stuck around for the drama, Fousey ended up accusing Jesse of being “on drugs” because he had “CHANGED… for the worse” in his eyes. We’re not sure what evidence Yousef is basing this off, but following on from Jesse’s split from Jeana and the sudden reveal of his secret teenage daughter, it’s entirely possible that Fousey feels like he’s lost a friend.
In response to this accusation, Jesse responded with; “Wow drugs!! Just because someone doesn’t like you mean they must be on drugs. You’re not that cool.”. The next series of tweets involve a secret text conversation which Yousef feels proves Jesse is “fake as sh*tttttt” plus a Twitter video from Jesse parodying one of Yousef’s “fake” pranks.
But what do you think; was Yousef out of order for his drug accusation, or is Jesse acting unlike himself and needed to be called out on it? Let us know in the comments below, and keep the conversation going on Facebook and Twitter.
