Keemstar is an American YouTuber who through his online channel, DramaAlet has amassed a massive income for himself doing what he loves. He is certainly one of the younger YouTubers to watch out for. Learn more about the online star.
Keemstar was born on March 8, 1983, in Buffalo New York as Daniel Keem to Italian parents. He has one brother and a sister. He pursued a career in law before his Youtube fame. The internet celebrity began his Youtube career in 2009 when a video he featured in got 100,000 views.
He seized the opportunity and created a channel known as XDJKEEMSTAR. However, in 2013, the account was terminated after he was caught in a video speaking ill of strangers as he played Halo 3’s multiplayer mode. The video gained massive views on Youtube, making him more known among Youtube users. Following the termination, he created a new account known as KillerKEEMSTER and TheDramaAlert. The accounts also did very great, getting over 300,000 subscribers in just 10 months.
The channel focused on videos that were related to Call of Duty and other dramatic videos. But lady luck failed to smile on the accounts and they were both shut down yet again in early 2014. Keemstar was accused of making up news by himself to create drama and terror through the channels. As a result, many people referred to him as a bullshit artist who would do anything to get fame online. Some also said he accused people wrongly.
However, the internet star wasn’t going to give up. The same year, he created another Youtube account making it his fourth and named it FreeDramaAlert. The account ended up just like the rest of his previous accounts leading to the creation of his recent account NewDramAlert. Fortunately for him, NewDramaAlert has been doing just fine.
The channel focuses on topics and dramas concerning other internet personalities including other Youtube members with a serious fan base. As a result, he is known as a very inharmonious person among the vlogging community due to his constant engagement in prolonged fights and rants with other content producers on the social media platform. Keemstar is also the leader of Federation of Asshole Gamers([email protected]).
Keemstar’s Net Worth
Best known as a Youtube celebrity and the founder of DramaAlert channel, Keemstar has crossed different obstacles to get his channel where it is now. Probably obstacles he created for himself.
In 2015, his channel was a subject of an online petition published on change.org to have him banned from using Youtube for his racist and trolling videos. He accused people without presenting concrete evidence and based the accusations on assumptions. He was also referred to as a racist who frequently speaks badly of people who don’t share the same values with him. He got the highest criticism in his career when he downplayed the health condition of another popular Youtube star “TotalBiscuit” who announced he had cancer.
However, it seemed he stepped on one too many great toes in 2016 and the repercussion soon followed. First, his channel ratings were disabled due to his history of uploading controversial videos, but it was later enabled. Also, the star claimed not to have access to his Youtube channel despite being the host and the creator. According to him, he was permanently prohibited from operating a YouTube account. For that reason, the videos were being uploaded by his assistant on the channel.
The same year, many prominent Youtube personalities started an internet war against Keemstar through direct videos. The videos aimed at criticizing not just his personality but also his works online. iDubbbzTv was among the many personalities that were critical of him. The channel uploaded a video titled Content Cop-KEEMSTAR in which the vlogger touched on his problem with Keemstar.
Also among the critics are Youtuber LeafyisHere and Pyrocynical, who also through two different videos shared their thoughts about Keemstar.
In response, Keemstar shared a long video on Youtube titled KEEMSTAR EXPOSED Response. In the video, he spoke at length on each of the allegations levelled against him.
Despite all the twists and turns he has witnessed in his online business, Keemstar has managed to accomplish his aim of making his channel one of the most known. In 2017, his DramaAlert channel was named the biggest Youtube news channel in the world. On Youtube, he has over 3.3 million followers. On other social media platforms like Instagram, the star has 15.6k fans and a whopping 1.4 million fans on Twitter. In addition to that, Keemstar has 73k followers on Stream-me.
This was after he didn’t give up on passing on DramAlert to numerous channels after every single termination. Even when he created new accounts and changed names, he was frequently ending with hashtag DramAlert to keep it alive. The celebrity who is the host of the Youtube channel ensures he shares new engaging videos nearly every day. The enormous fame he has gained online thanks to his Drama Alert news show on Youtube has not only made him a king in the Youtube news sphere but also, one of the richest. Also, due to his effort and determination to rule the online sphere, he has also been nominated for Shorty award for best web series.
With all these in mind, Keemstar’s net worth is estimated at $1.6million. He earned the major part of his wealth from his Youtube videos and also charges $20 per fan to add people to BlogTV chat as a moderator or to his friend list. Despite his accomplishment on Youtube and the money he has earned, people still regard him as a controversial and hateful vlogger.
