Jovan Hill has been called a “digital beggar,” and as the New York Times reported last December, he asks his loyal online followers to “donate to the Jovan charity” so he can pay his $1,300 monthly rent and keep up his marijuana habit while remaining unemployed.
But he had his Twitter account suspended last week after posting a fake photo of popular beauty vlogger James Charles using the N-word. Now, Hill is back on Twitter with a different account, and he said he’s trying to expose white YouTubers who have used racist or other problematic language. Or, in his own words, he wants to “fuck up every white life I can.”
Last week, Hill posted a fake Instagram direct message from Charles. Then, Charles responded on Twitter by threatening to sue Hill, writing, “This is absolutely not funny. Delete this immediately, or my lawyer will be in contact.”
Charles followed that tweet with more condemning Hill’s actions.
It’s scary to me that there are actual people on twitter who crave attention so badly that they make fake screenshots to try and ruin other’s careers and lives... it’s not funny— James Charles (@jamescharles) March 13, 2019
Getting messages death threats and emails questioning one’s character over a fake screenshot is not a joke— James Charles (@jamescharles) March 13, 2019
After that incident, his @jovanmhill Twitter account was suspended. But he’s back with a @jovanforever Twitter account, and now he’s focused his attention on YouTubers like Shane Dawson, David Dobrik, and Tana Mongeau.
imma fuck up every white life i can ill make as many accounts as it takes fuck you bigoted motherfuckers— shane dawson still selling racist merch ➐ (@jovanforever) March 18, 2019
While Dawson was apologizing on Sunday night for an old joke he told about ejaculating on his cat, Hill targeted him for his liberal use of blackface in the past and for sexualizing his pets.
Dawson previously had apologized for pedophilia jokes he had told on his old podcast several years ago, and on Sunday night, he was adamant that “I didn’t fuck my cat. I didn’t cum on my cat. I didn’t put my dick anywhere near my cat. I’ve never done anything weird with my cats.”
Hill also turned his attention to David Dobrik and Tana Mongeau, who have more than 11.5 million and 3.8 million YouTube subscribers, respectively. Dobrik previously on Twitter had called people “sluts” and used racist language.
Hill retweeted this into his timeline, as well.
David Dobrik a trump apologist and got caught saying the n world??? this yalls favorite youtuber???? pic.twitter.com/sVcVeiV1PZ— ken (@fearstrust) March 17, 2019
As for Mongeau, Hill tweeted video of her saying the N-word.

YouTuber Noel Miller, who has nearly one million subscribers, also got Hill’s attention with old transphobic tweets and a video in which Miller applauded Dave Chappelle’s transphobic humor.
Evidently, Hill is content to cause as much chaos as possible, writing on Twitter, “If you stan Emma Chamberlain, James Charles, Shane Dawson, Jeffree Star, Cody Ko, Noel Miller, or Tana, you are a racist and a transphobe and proud of it.”
