Keemstar also grew a fanbase on BattleCam, a trashtalking website where he would become a moderator along with AlexXx8. A controversial incident had occurred when racial slurs had been exchanged between the two moderators.

DramaAlert[edit | edit source]
Keemstar has hosted DramaAlert throughout its many incarnations, he has been hosting from 2012-2016, leaving temporarily and returning to host again permanently since then.
In 2016, a controversial incident had occured when two members of Keemstar's news team reported on a pedophile who allegedly was released from prison and apparently went back to streaming on Twitch (the evidence relying on facial recognition). As a result the 62-year old streamer received a lot of hate. Later Keemstar realized that his team actually accused the wrong guy and the real pedophile was still serving a prison sentence. This got Keemstar a lot of backlash from the community in his apology video, Keemstar fired the two reporters and offered to pay the streamer $1000 cash after the misunderstanding.
