Keemstar is finally retiring after 14 years
YouTuber Daniel Keem, aka Keemstar, has announced his retirement after almost 14 years of talking about internet feuds on DramaAlert. He revealed his plan to retire via Twitter on Monday, a declaration many initially suspected was a troll. It wouldn't be out of character considering he started on YouTube with clips of himself trolling in video games. However in a subsequent 12-minute video entitled "Retired," Keemstar reiterated that he would indeed be stepping down from his role as DramaAlert's host, explaining that the job had simply lost its appeal. "I'm your host, Killer Keemstar, and I quit," said Keemstar. "Quite frankly, I'm not having fun anymore." He primarily put his retirement down to "cancel culture." DramaAlert has over 5.7 million subscribers and covers feuds, relationships, and drama concerning online personalities. According to Keemstar, the public's willingness to contact YouTubers' sponsors about their behaviour in droves has "caused everyone to stop speaking their minds" and thus cut down on the drama of the internet. He assured viewers that he’s not trolling and is serious about leaving the platform. Keemstar, who’s now 39, hinted that his age may be a factor in his reason for retirement after a 12-year career on the platform.

In the video, he accused Keem of threatening big YouTubers with negative coverage and promoting small channels or accusing them of hiding something. Carter called Keem a "very rash decision maker" and showed clips of Keem saying what he called "really regrettable shit". In response, Keem called the Content Cop video "entertaining" and denied wanting to attack other YouTubers, saying he has "no problem booking guests or landing exclusive interviews".

- Back in June 2019, after YouTuber Deamond Amofah (Etika) committed suicide, several Twitter users blamed Keem for "egging on" Amofah, with much of the criticism founded in an interview earlier that year where Keem said "If you really think about it, then why live? Just jump off a cliff. If it's just a simulation, who cares?" in response to Amofah talking about how he believed he lived in a simulation. In addition, Amofah also mentioned Keem in his last video titled "I'm sorry", saying, "Keemstar, I wish you the best, my nigga". Keem refuted these claims in a series of tweets, claiming people were using him as a scapegoat and that nobody was talking about tweets in which he was concerned for him. He went on to say that he thought Amofah's mental health issues were a publicity stunt, due to him seeming fine and wanting to guest star on DramaAlert. Later, Amofah's mother defended Keem by texting him afterward, stating he was not to blame for Amofah's suicide and that he loved Keem and his show.
- As of May 2020, YouTuber Ethan Klein released a video exposé about Keem, which resulted in G Fuel ending their sponsorship with him.
