Verbal feuds are not uncommon in the world of celebrities and influencers. Sometimes these feuds can erupt because of a very real tension in a relationship over something serious. However, sometimes it can seem like a feud comes out of the blue without any real rhyme or reason.

The apparent feud between YouTuber Dream and voice actor Nicolas Cantuwho is best known for his role as Gumball Waterson in the animated series The Amazing World of Gumball, definitely falls into the more random category. Even though the two may have distanced themselves from each other, the internet is fascinated by the war of words between them.

What happened to Dream and Gumball?

The confrontation began in October 2023 when Nicolas attacked a Dream parody account on Twitter. Dream then pointed out that Nicolas wasn’t really responding to him. Dream made a series of allegations about a party the two attended together and an Uber ride home that they subsequently shared. Dream then posted a video of Nicolas clearly arguing with an Uber driver.

In the caption, Dream claims that Nicolas is homophobic, ableist, anti-Semitic, threatening and narcissistic. Based on the content of the video, it is difficult to dispute these claims. Although it is not always entirely clear what is being discussed and the recording has been shortened, Nicolas still uses disability and homophobic slurs. Nicolas also says that he wants to fight Dream and leave him either dead or in a wheelchair.

Nicolas apparently asked to be recorded, and the recording came after the two met at a party and got into a physical altercation. Dream made further allegations in follow-up tweets, claiming that Nicolas had exhibited a lot of bad behavior, for which he later apologized via text message.

Dream isn’t particularly popular on the internet at the moment.

Although the video released by Dream appears to show Nicolas misbehaving, many have rallied to the actor’s defense. Dream is a pretty unpopular character on the internet right now. His reputation took a turn for the worse after it was revealed that he was cheating while gambling Minecraftbut it took a nosedive after allegations emerged that he may have groomed young women.

The confrontation between them began after Nicolas suspected that Dream was a “pedo,” and Dream released the video in response. Many also pointed out that Nicolas was still a minor. While Dream didn’t specifically admit to drinking, many accused him of supplying alcohol to a 20-year-old. Of course, this is not the most serious accusation made against him.
