Elijah And Christine Had A Twitter Argument And Things Got Serious

The two former creative partners clashed on Twitter
The two creators were at one time inseparable, frequently making videos together and even getting 'married' as part of a Taco Bell promotion.
Last year, however, the pair went their separate ways under less than loving circumstances, and have mostly not engaged with each other since then. But things got serious yesterday (Aug 28) on Twitter, when the two started to deal with their issues directly.
It began with a video from Elijah about David Dobrik
Elijah posted a video in which he called out fellow YouTuber David Dobrik for using offensive language in old tweets and the nature of cancel culture. The subject of old offensive tweets has been very much in the public focus lately (with Laura Lee being probably the most talked about example) and remains a controversial and hotly debated topic.
Christine was not happy with Elijah's video, calling it "clickbait" and accused Elijah of hypocrisy:
“cancelling people for things they said when they were 16 isn’t fair we all said dumb things when we were young”— Christine Sydelko (@csydelko) August 28, 2018
*posts clickbait video trying to cancel one of the biggest youtubers in the world for things he tweeted when he was 16*
She clarified the issue was with Elijah, not David
Christine was quick to explain that she wasn't trying to defend David, but was instead frustrated at the way Elijah was behaving.
I’m not defending anyone it’s just the fact that people can’t see through this bullshit is astounding to me like it pisses me off seeing people praise the fakest person I’ve ever met for being “real”— Christine Sydelko (@csydelko) August 28, 2018
This lead to a series of stark confessions about their relationship
It seems that the chances of a reunion may be highly unlikely at this point.
Elijah was a terrible friend to me. He gaslit me, lied to me about business things, never followed through on promises, refused to talk out any issues in person, ruined brand deals with his narcissism, and left me hanging constantly while always expecting me to bail him out 🖕— Christine Sydelko (@csydelko) August 29, 2018
Elijah did not want to engage at first
no, I’ve said nothing negative about her and im not gonna start now. we don’t even talk anymore and i still talk to her manager every week checking on her. I’ll always be the villain idc anymore lol. https://t.co/dvuPEaaWXr— lil phag (@elijahdaniel) August 29, 2018
But Christine tweeted him directly
it’s funny you used the word villain because I distinctly remember you debating whether or not to go “full villain” to gain fans after the channel break up https://t.co/UQxRAFoVjO— Christine Sydelko (@csydelko) August 29, 2018
Full villain as lil phag and not caring anymore, which is what i did. you try to drag me in every podcast, you did INTERVIEWS about our channel split, your pinned tweet is ME. you know i love you like a sister but I’m really done with this. It actually hurts lol. plz move on.— lil phag (@elijahdaniel) August 29, 2018
The feud showed no sign of ending
I know these tweets are annoying I get it but manic episodes??? He’s literally lying about my mental health to discredit me and further paint himself as the good guy which is literally disgusting idk how people support this garbage pic.twitter.com/vnbNH5MHZi— Christine Sydelko (@csydelko) August 29, 2018
Elijah eventually posted a tongue-in-cheek statement
I just wanted to address, and apologize for today’s video 💖 pic.twitter.com/KiYWRZoBng— lil phag (@elijahdaniel) August 29, 2018
So it seems that despite a very heavy airing of grievances, the pair are no closer to reconciling. We'll have to wait and see if the pair ever settle their differences, but with the two of them living apart and apparently rarely talking, it seems unlikely.
Fans are split about how to feel
i cant take sides on this one— wiley (@wileyw_) August 29, 2018
I wish mom and dad still loved each other— Hales (@lamewallaby) August 29, 2018
Obviously this needs to be taken in the DMs or something private. This is not beef. This has to be something deeper that THEY ALONE need to talk about. Please, take this somewhere private. This is b/w Elijah and Christine ONLY! Not Elijah and Christine and the fans.— Daddy Cas (@notmommycas) August 29, 2018
