Phil did not respond to this tweet though he did respond to a question involving his schedule. A Twitter user known for criticizing DSP responded to the tweet and expressed his condolences. When Phil heard of this, he called it harassment and bullying and encouraged people to flag all the critics tweets so Twitter Support would shut down his account.
Though Phil has been known to get extremely combative on Twitter and his forums, he also becomes very sheepish when confronted directly. With the aforementioned "Kingdom Hearts incident", his first instinct was to attempt to shut off the PlayStation 4's voice chat feature. He has done this numerous times in multipayer games whenever he is confronted about something he has either said or done. In addition, he has insulted people in his stream chat after banning them for saying things he doesn't want to hear, reinforcing his own cowardly behaviour despite calling other people cowards.
Fans and critics alike take issue with Phil's usage of Patreon. He has, on several occasions, failed to live up to the promises he makes. After reaching that goal, Phil played for less than five and a half hours and said he would only continue if donated more money. A more infamous instance was the reboot of Project 7. He promised that if enough money had been donated he would reboot the series and would include the names of his highest payers and would show the progress made thus far. However, after reaching the goal, Phil announced that he would still postpone Project 7 and would not refund the money given but would thumbs down the video instead.
Phil has also developed a policy that he would not perform any of the reached milestones unless it is several hundred dollars above the mark. He claims that this is done to counter false and dropped patreon pledges. He has began to only allow those who have pledged to his patreon to play him in online multiplayer because of recent 'trolling'. He played it for 4 hours and had help from the Stream Chat. From that moment onwards, he never streamed it online again, and instead played the game offline, with many people finding out he was using a guide to speed through the game and know all the secrets.
Some people accused Phil in the comments of parts of the playthrough that he was using the stream chat for help. Phil went on a tirade at the beginning of part 16 of the playthough, saying that he wasn't using the stream chat anymore after the first streaming of the game. However, Phil did receive messages from viewers who told him certain things in the game, such as using the gold feather power to defeat ghosts, an ability that Phil never used until it was mentioned to him. Phil abruptly and acrimoniously ended the playthrough for Persona 3 , which was a Patreon's Choice Playthrough, on August 1, , being unable to defeat the final boss.
Fans and haters alike were both upset at this, especially considering the fact that Phil was playing the game on easy level. Phil's spending decisions have come into question. He often talks of his back problem and his inability to afford a treatment. He also often talks about the difficulty he has paying off his bills and mortgages. Despite this, he has taken vacations with his girlfriend and staying at executive suites.
He also possess numerous models and action figures that had occupied most of the space of his original condo. He was selling some of these models at high prices , but he gave up since around late Phil also claims that he can't afford certain things , while at other times, he buys things that could cost a lot. Phil has criticized people who get advanced copies of games before their street date and play them before street date, saying that everyone should get a game and play it at a similar time.
However, Phil has gotten games in advance himself, and has broken street date before as well. However, viewers have been critical of this choice, because of how Phil has treated TIHYDP videos in the past and what he has said about the people who have made them before, including saying that such video have supposedly nearly gotten him killed and calling anyone who has created one, mentally ill children. Phil's former relationship with PandaLee has also become a source of controversy.
Not only had fans and former fans objected to her attitude and commentary, but there is controversy over when Phil started dating her. Phil has repeatedly insisted that he only began dating PandaLee after she reached legal age, but a number of people who claimed to have known Phil in real life claim that he and PandaLee had been dating long before she reached legal age and had simply kept it it a secret.
However, the validity of any of these claims from both parties have yet to be confirmed. Phil's treatment of Leanna has become quite controversial. While many viewers, fans and haters alike, still take issue with her they have also taken issue with how she has been treated under certain circumstances. On one occasion, Leanna was sick and had to stay in bed all day, Phil had her get up and cook him dinner despite her condition.
Another time, Leanna had a panic attack and had to go to the Emergency Room in response. Fortunately, her condition was not serious, but Phil was angered by this since he now had to pay the bills for sending her there and publicly said if such thing were to happen again, he would not let her go to the ER. These incidents eventually led to the break-up of Phil and Leanna in May On October 21, , while doing a pre-stream Phil was talking about how stressed he was having to keep up his schedule, when someone said they had lost their brother and was able to still sleep and cook meals.
Phil immediately accused the person of trying to claim they were better than him this lead to him banning them from the stream and he began to insult the person. The day after at the end of a Week in Preview Phil continued to say that it was an attempt to make him look bad and even went as far to say that it was bait and nothing they said was real and called anyone who disagreed with him an idiot.
This event has enraged even more people both fans and haters alike, showing just how quickly he'll take things out of context, despite accusing others of doing the same to him. On November 9, , Phil got enraged at a person on stream who asked why people with different opinions get banned from his chat. Phil claimed that it doesn't happen and that anyone who thinks that is an idiot.
This incident further shows how aggressive Phil has become ever since starting on YouTube, and since his break up with Leanna as he now easily becomes angry even at innocent questions driving even more people and remaining fans away from him. However, he received a 24 hour suspension from Twitch, since soliciting bits for financial support is against the site's Terms of Service. He was suspended again a month later for unclarified reasons. In May of , Phil chose to take a day off. However, before he did, he tweeted a rant about Youtubers and streamers getting early copies of State of Decay 2.
He said that everyone who gets early copies are "not true gamers", "walking advertisements", and "paid shills" who only do things for attention and money and insinuated that he was vastly superior to all of them. This outraged many Youtubers, streamers, their fans, and even some gaming journalists like Ryan McAffery. The backlash was so immense that Phil was forced to delete the tweet.
They are walking advertisements, not true gamers, and are doing so solely for a paycheck. Phil's fans have also become a source of criticism. To counter the rising number of groups exposing or criticizing Phil's actions on the internet, many of his fans have created channels to supposedly expose the actions of those groups, often using similar names.
However, the videos posted on said channels are often slanderous and often makes accusations with circumstantial and sometimes no evidence. This has caused at least one channel, DSP World Order, to be terminated due to repeated and severe violations of its terms of service, though another channel with the same name has been created. Other fans, while not creating separate YouTube channels, have gone to videos criticizing DSP and attempted to instigate fights, make similar baseless accusations, and threats of violence. However, despite accepting the role, she reported that he was difficult to work with.
Upon hearing this he accused her of using him to get attention from the "hater" community and his fans soon began to harass her over this. Attempts to start debates simply resulted in more insults. After Phil moved to Washington, his contact with John Rambo and Howard declined until it stopped entirely. During this time, John Rambo created a Paymeton parody. Many of accused that the parody was directed toward Darksydephil, causing many to wonder what happened between them, but John insisted that, while Darksydephil was a source of inspiration, the parody was aimed at youtubers as a whole who overly relied on Patreon.
He also asked that people not make assumptions about events they do not know about and that he rather not talk about what happened to not harm Phil's reputation. Eventually, Phil was asked about it again on an Ask the King episode and said that he has not heard from John or Howard. Phil claimed that he did not know why he has not heard from them and that 'real men' discuss their problems.
He said that the only possible thing he could think of was that they were jealous and bitter of his rise in popularity. John and Howard felt they had no choice but to respond to this and created a video describing everything that happened between them. The original video was flagged and removed by an unknown party though others have re-uploaded it. John and Howard describe how Andre and Paul, childhood friends of Howard, had attended film school and were interested in starting a project. After deciding to bring Phil in on this, this became Project 7. However, the editing and special effects took a great amount of time and effort.
Furthermore, Andre finds out he is going to be a father, making it even harder. John suggested to Phil that he pay them for their effort, but Phil said that he had offered to pay Andre and Paul but they turned it down. However, Howard talked to Andre and Paul and discovered that Phil had never offered to pay them and lied to keep the money for himself. In fact, none of the people involved with Project 7 were given any cut. The only person who was paid was John but this was so he could continue to help produce Project 7 since his car broke down and he needed to buy a used one.
Howard was particularly irate that Phil then began buying figurines, a BMW, and other luxury items with the money, feeling Phil was making money off the backs of others. The same was done with the Project 7 T-shirts.
They all contributed in the cost of making the T-shirts, but Phil made all the revenue and did not offer any of them a percentage. They talked about how when Scott passed away they informed Phil and asked him to contact them. However, Phil did not respond but created a monetized video on the subject, irritating everyone in their friends group that Phil would try to make money off of the death of another, and most likely marked the final straw in his friendships with them.
Howard recalled that not long before Phil moved to Washington, he called for a final playthrough together. However, Howard had already made plans with his girlfriend. Phil said that if Howard doesn't attend then it solidifies that they are not friends, so Howard had cancel his plans with his girlfriend. However, once Phil moved, Howard had not heard from him. He would send him occasional messages, but Phil wouldn't reply back.
John also talks about several times Phil ended up saying something untrue about him on a video. One incident was: after seeing comments praising John Rambo's performance in Project 7, Phil claimed that it was all his idea.
John and Howard both confirmed that Phil actually had nothing to do with those parts and were irate that he would make a video talking about it instead of talking to them. John confronted Phil who apologized. Another incident was when Phil wished to play Mario Party 10 with Leanna, though his viewers wanted it with John. Phil responded by saying John does not like games like Mario Party, causing his viewers to send insulting messages to John Rambo about the subject. John confronted Phil again who apologized.
Both John and Howard say that Phil would repeatedly do things they dislike and he would apologize after they confront him but made no effort not to do it again, leading them to no longer associate with him, feeling that attempting to confront him about it would bear no results. They ended the video saying that they still wish Phil the best but if he takes issue with what was said he should contact them, not make a reply video but text them.
Phil was originally going to make a reply video but chose not to, saying that the 'haters' would twist his words. On October 26, , two years after these events, during an Ask the King segment a question Phil got asked about a moment that really hurt him personally in his life.

Phil spoke of two moments: his breakup with Leanna and the end of the friendship between him, John and Howard. Phil claims that the response video they made felt like a betrayal to him and he also claimed that John and Howard never told him about anything he did wrong during their time together putting all the blame on them as the reason their friendship fell apart. This has caused outrage among many who feel Phil is lying to save himself.
John and Howard have yet to comment on this. In particular, he watched his old vlogs on his trips to Chicago, Illinois in and Nashville, Tennessee in He, John and Howard traveled together to both places. During the final part of the series, Phil talked about the friendship he once had with them, and how life and drama led to the end of his friendships with them. However, Phil claims that John and Howard had built-up resentment towards him when he started to make revenue on his YouTube videos and the way Project 7 royalties were handled, citing those as the reasons for their friendship ending.
Phil said that in May of , he and Leanna had broken up but said that he would not discuss the details of it. Over time, more information has been made public about what happened as many had claimed that Phil's recent video talking about her panic attack and saying that he would not take her to the hospital again if another incident like this occurs is a possible reason.
In a recent Twitter post, Phil said that it was related to finances and so far has been putting the blame all on Leanna herself.
A comment made by a YouTube user who claims to have spoken to Leanna said she told them that Phil would not help with chores around the house. She stated that she did all the work while he refused to help and would only play games in some stream's when she came into the room Phil would ignore her and say "I can't hear you, I have headphones on. She had grown sick of what had become of their relationship and wanted to be with someone who actually appreciated her Phil has also changed the story about their break up saying it happened before the Hospital trip. Many don't believe this as it does not make sense that Phil would be angry about paying for her bill if they were no longer together.
Phil has yet to give a comment on these claims. Many people speculated that Phil suffers from "Narcissistic Personality Disorder", as he never admits to his mistakes and will blame everyone and everything else for his own problems. An example would be the time when he was banned from blip. Ever since then, he always acted in a similar way to anything that has happened to him saying it's because of the people who don't like him and his fall is because of those who made TIHYDP and other videos about him that brought criticism on to him.
He also continues to push the narrative that he is superior to everyone else, and that his style of video making is the best way, and everything else is bad. Phil has been parodied numerous times by numerous sources for his failings. Many of these videos have gone viral and become far more popular than Phil's actual videos. Among the most popular are:. A series of videos showcasing Phil's various failings and rages at games he plays, popular among DSP's fans and critics alike.
