YouTubers Summer McKeen and Hannah Meloche are at the centre of another internet controversy.

YouTube is never very far from controversy in this day and age as more and more people pour onto the site in search of fame and fortune.

The latest in the ever-lengthening line of YouTubers who have been at the heart of controversy are Summer McKeen and Hannah Meloche after videos emerged that showed the pair in a less than ideal light.

But what exactly is the cause of this latest drama that's put the two content creators at the heart of another heated debate?

Who is Summer McKeen?

As mentioned, Summer McKeen is a YouTuber and aspiring actress whose channel, which has earned an impressive 2.3 million subscribers, focuses on all sorts of content, ranging from makeup tutorials, fitness videos and general discussion videos.

Recently, McKeen came under fire for a sponsored video where she linked up with dating app Tinder.

The video saw Summer and her sister met up with supposedly total strangers who would show them round new cities they were visiting. The controversy arose when McKeen said that she would 'recommend' people try it out, despite the obvious dangers of meeting total strangers online. 

Who is Hannah Meloche?

Hannah Meloche, meanwhile, is another YouTuber whose content follows the same sort of lines as McKeen's.

Meloche's channel has not quite grown to the same size and McKeen's with just 1.1 million subscribers, at the time of writing, but it's clear that she's got a large and dedicated following of her own.

What's all this drama about?

The pair are frequent collaborators and have recently come under scrutiny for videos that the pair posted which shows them both in a less-than-ideal light.

To be more specific, the pair have uploaded several videos in recent weeks where they're unkind, shall we say, to fellow content creators and it's left the two on the receiving end of a large amount of criticism as a result.

One video, in particular, sees the pair reacting to fan edits of their videos and are overly critical or harsh in what they say, leading many to question the pair's character.

Another YouTuber, going by the name of Cartier Tea uploaded this video with more details on the recent drama.
