Controversy

CallMeCarson vs. Fitz

Carson announced he was taking an indefinite break that started late March 2020 saying that Carson has major events going on around his life.

Sexual harassment

On 4 January 2021, a Twitter user named Sam accused Carson of Child grooming|grooming and sexual harassment.

Following the allegations from Sam, other content creators on the internet have stepped forward to say that Carson confided in them that he had started sexual relationships with several minors. As of 8 January 2021, Carson has yet to respond to these allegations.[1][6][7][8] In the week between 1 January 2021 to 7 January 2021, CallMeCarson lost 190,000 subscribers.[9]
