Kris Tyson and Keemstar clash on Twitter
Kris Tyson, a member of the MrBeast crew and content creator, recently clashed with Daniel “Keemstar” Keem on Twitter. This confrontation followed a transphobic joke made by Keemstar’s Drama Alert Twitter account, which targeted Tyson after her transition and hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Tyson, who publicly identified as a woman earlier in the year, responded sharply to the joke, challenging the appropriateness of discussing someone’s genitals in such a context.
The situation escalated when Keemstar, who also owns an influencer boxing promotion company, invited Tyson to participate in a boxing match. This invitation was revealed by Tyson through a screenshot of their private conversation. In the midst of this controversy, Keemstar claimed that the initial troll posts targeting Tyson were actually made by a transgender employee of his, rather than by him personally.
Despite this claim, Keemstar faced significant backlash for the comments made on his DramaAlert Twitter page, which led to him issuing an apology on behalf of his team. He emphasized the difference between reporting news and making obscene comments, indicating that the latter was a mistake made by his team.
Meanwhile, Tyson has been sharing her journey through HRT, highlighting the changes she has experienced over the past year. These updates have garnered a lot of support and positive reactions, especially from the LGBTQ community, showcasing her transformation and progress.
This clash between Tyson and Keemstar highlights the sensitive nature of discussions around gender identity and the importance of respectful communication in public platforms. The incident also sheds light on the challenges faced by individuals undergoing gender transitions, especially those in the public eye.
