We searched the internet for more information and for fans’ reactions to the latest Trisha Paytas controversy. Grab your cameras and dive into the question: Who is Trisha Paytas and what has happened now?
An unusual career
For those of you who are wondering just who is Trish Paytas and why they’re suddenly taking over your Twitter feed, Paytas is a lifestyle YouTuber & influencer who has quite a few acting & singing accomplishments behind them. Before joining YouTube, Paytas was a stripper & actor, appearing in television shows such as The Greg Behrendt Show and Who Wants to Be a Superhero?
Paytas later moved to YouTube, beginning their “channel blndsundoll4mj” as a Quintin Tarantino dedication channel before transitioning to a lifestyle channel, focusing on fashion & relationship advice. Later, they created a second channel, “TrishasLife”, that focused on personal vlog videos. They also moved into making music videos, their video for their song “Fat Chicks” being featured on several sites including Business Insider.
Paytas went on to make more music before switching gears to podcasting & TikTok, reviving their podcast The Dish with Trish before canceling the show in August 2020. Since then, Paytas has been a co-host for the h3h3production podcast Frenemies. An ever shifting career that is heavily marked by both their many transitions and the many controversies that popped up along the way.
One after the other
Paytas’s career, despite its ever shifting nature, has been marked by one consistent aspect: their penchant for controversy. Many fans remember the still ongoing feud Paytas has with YouTuber David Dobrik and their relationship with Jason Nash, with Paytas coming out with new allegations about how Dobrik wanted to force Paytas and Tana Mongeau to have a threesome with Nash back in May.
Of course, that isn’t the only major controversy Paytas has found themselves in. Their defense of Shane Dawson, who was publicly cancelled due to several past offensive jokes as well as Paytas’s own offensive humor has landed them in hot water as well as their claims of having Dissociative Personality Disorder (DID), which caused many fans who did have DID to call them out on perpetuating hurtful stereotypes.
With Paytas’s departure from the Frenemies podcast being tied to the very public financial argument the two hosts had on Twitter, it’s no surprise that many had quite a bit to say on this latest scandal that Paytas has found themselves in.

Trisha. Please stop. I’m begging you. As someone with bpd I know how hard it can be not to be reactionary when you’re manic. You’re only going to hurt yourself in the long run.
