Influencer and YouTuber Yang Bao Bei (杨宝贝) caused quite the stir last year when she threatened to commit suicide. Her suicide attempt led to a slew of surprises, such as her scams and her gambling addiction. Although she’s been making amends, it seems YBB is about to dive into another drama. This time, she has beef with fellow YouTuber Chris Hoo.
Last week (30th December 2021), YBB revealed she and her sister had been beaten up by two men. There was no indication as to why they did so, but YBB suspected Chris Hoo of hiring them. She mentioned as much during her recent YouTube video. Of course, the YouTuber decided to retaliate with his own video.
YBB aired her suspicions on 31st December 2021 in a video. In addition to being beaten up, YBB claims she’s been undergoing harassment from various parties. One of them is supposedly YouTuber couple Chris Hoo and Agnes Ma. The duo were initially suspected of helping YBB with her scams. According to YBB, Chris and Agnes have supposedly been threatening her and she had to resort to nudes to repay the couple. Although she did not explicitly state so, she heavily hinted at them instigating the assault.
Chris tried to clarify matters via his own video yesterday (5th January 2022). He first claimed he was not targeting anyone. He also denied helping YBB with her scams and forcing her to take nudes. Chris also brought up the fact that YBB had slandered influencer Lim Shang Jin, Charles Tee, her cousin and even stooped as low to use Qiu Wen to slander Shang Jin. As evidence he played a voice clip that apparently belonged to YBB. On it, she supposedly said: “As for Lim Shangjin, we must do it until (Shang Jin) is dead.”
Additionally, Chris refuted her allegation of being forced to take nude photos. He claimed he had helped her with her debt by giving her RM100,000, so it was strange for him to force her into taking nudes. The YouTuber felt YBB was only saying such things for clout and reprimanded her for shifting the blame to avoid her own wrongdoings.
In fact, Chris stated he had been beaten up too! Apparently he had contacted YBB in hopes of discussing matters with her. However, when he arrived at the designated pace chosen by YBB, he was beaten up by two people as arranged by YBB. The YouTuber showed photos of his injuries and claimed the two people had also deleted all evidence regarding YBB from his phone. However, he reassured viewers he had backups.
As a final blow, he claimed YBB’s vendetta against Lim Shang Jin was her own and not backed by anyone else. Chris stated YBB had bribed the police to arrest Shang Jin and played a voice clip which supposedly had YBB stating this would stain Shang Jin’s image.
Chris made a solid case with plenty of chat screenshots and voice clips. But YBB wasn’t going to take it lying down. She was quick to release her own evidence and refute his statements on her Instagram earlier this morning (6th January). “There’s no denying that everything I did before was really heinous, but I never denied, nor evaded any responsibility,” she wrote.
YBB emphasised that Chris did make her take nudes and has been harassing her and her family. “You found (someone) to harass my family, you found a strong man to harass my ex’s clinic, and you asked Indians to stand in his shop every day to harass (him while he’s) working. You call to harass my ex, these are all true,” she stated. YBB also claimed that Chris was her accomplice during the frauds and that she “committed the crime for (him)“.
“From the beginning till the end, I (have been) bearing all the sins for you, and you (do) not dare to admit your mistakes in the film. You asked me to follow you. This is a fact,” she said. She also claimed that the voice clips Chris played were scripted. “The part of the recording that you cut out a lot (is) what you instructed me to say. Do you dare play the (full ) original recording?” YBB challenged.
As for hiring someone to assault Chris, YBB was astounded. “I’m in debt,” she pointed out. “How can I find someone to beat you (up)?” The YouTuber once again emphasised that she has been serious about paying off her debts hence her obvious hard work during the last half of 2021. “Finally, you don’t need to pretend to break up,” she added snidely, indicating a certain ‘friend’ had visited him recently.
Well, one thing’s for sure: someone may be going around beating up YouTubers! Aside from that, we’re at a stalemate with both YBB and Chris blaming each other. Will we see another lawsuit from YBB? Her case with Shang Jin has yet to come to a close, but she might be gunning for Chris next.
