The infamous Dream Minecraft speedrun controversy

Dream shocked the world of Minecraft after he posted a speedrun world record for 1.16. He is one of the game’s most celebrated players and he achieved a historic time to beat the Ender Dragon. But, in December 2020, his speedruns were stripped by the moderators of the record because of cheating allegations.

Many creators and officials showcased proofs to back their claims, but Dream refuted them vehemently. Since then, many of his fans have protected him from others trying to prove that he was a cheater. But all hell broke loose last month when he confirmed that the allegations were true after he admitted his mistake by tweeting a 3000-word Pastebin message.

Since then, other YouTubers and esteemed Minecraft community members have berated Dream for lying about his huge mistake. Fireb0rn, a popular YouTuber, also vilified him in his latest video where he considered his apology to be ‘fake’.

“Don’t send hate. I disliked it, okay, to be fair, I do dislike the video just to say.”

But, fireb0rn caught some heat from Dream’s stans for not accepting his apology. Many of these fans have gone after the creator, but many others have also supported him against the famous Minecraft player. Some community members stated that Dream accidentally brought this hate upon fireb0rn by reacting to his video live on stream. Along with that, they also called him out for disliking the video as well, which added fuel to the fire.

This latest incident between the fans and fireb0rn showcases the dark side of one of the biggest communities in the gaming world. Minecraft is universally loved by players, but they also have had to suffer a lot of toxicity because of these horrible stans. In the end, the creators have to do better to protect other creators and players from their fandom.
