YouTuber Trisha Paytas has responded to the allegations against her podcast co-host Colleen Ballinger.
In May, the pair launched a podcast called Oversharing, where the YouTube veterans spoke about motherhood, mental health, and feeling stuck in their careers.
They had only put out three episodes when, in early June, allegations from Ballinger's former fans — ranging from inappropriate conversations with teens in group chats to using a young fan as 'unpaid labour' — began to resurface.
Since then, multiple fans have spoken to publications such as Rolling Stone, and a former writers' assistant on Ballinger's Netflix series Haters Back Off has written about the alleged racism she witnessed on set.
Online, Ballinger, 36, is best known for her Miranda Sings character, who has had a large contingent of mostly young fans for more than a decade.
