Dream and Nicolas Cantu Drama: A Detailed Look at Their Social Media Battle
The saga began on 15 November when a parody account posted a photo of Dream with a caption that read “who want me.” Nicolas Cantu replied to this post stating "I want you dead."
When the parody account responded with an image showing Cantu’s age with a caption that read “blocked,” the latter responded by accusing Dream of being a ped*phile which lead to the ugly exchange on social media.
In retaliation, Dream vehemently denied Cantu's accusations and proceeded to make his own set of serious allegations against Cantu. These included physical assault, the use of racial and ableist slurs, and a contentious incident involving an Uber driver. To substantiate his claims, Dream presented screenshots of private messages, purportedly showing Cantu's apology for his behavior, which he attributed to being “drunk and high.”
Nicolas Cantu's reaction to Dream's allegations was a mixture of admissions and denials. He appeared to accept responsibility for some of the actions he was accused of, like physical assault, while emphatically denying others, including the use of racist language.
The internet, as expected, erupted with varied reactions from fans. Some sided with Dream, while others supported Nicolas Cantu. Most just expressed their disbelief on seeing such a saga unfold in real time.
Dream, known for his Minecraft gameplay on YouTube, gained significant fame following a face reveal in 2022 that led to a flurry of internet memes. He had previously faced and vehemently denied allegations of pedophilia and grooming. Nicolas Cantu, a 20-year-old voice actor, has voiced notable characters like Gumball Watterson in "The Amazing World of Gumball" and Leonardo in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." His presence on YouTube and in stand-up comedy under the alias "Junky Janker" adds to his multifaceted public persona.
