Alia “SSSniperWolf” Shelesh is a name a lot of people know, but often not for the best of reasons. This controversial YouTuber may have been voted “Favorite Gamer” in a past Kids Choice Awards, but many in the gaming community have disliked her for years. Why is that? 
In 2019, SSSniperWolf was called out by Daniel “Keemstar” Keem after she was recognized as children’s “favorite gamer.” Keemstar and his following pointed out that not only does SSSniperWolf’s YouTube content not revolve around gaming, but she’s been accused of only pretending to play games multiple times. 

Other YouTubers and people within the gaming community have consistently called her out for claiming to play games and stealing other content creators’ footage and pretending it was her own. It’s also been widely speculated that SSSniperWolf’s Overwatch footage is just her boyfriend’s gameplay. 

At one point, SSSniperWolf claimed she got to the top 500 in Overwatch using only DPS heroes in solo queue. But SSSniperWolf was caught streaming with a top 500 Overwatch players who carried her while she played Lucio. She’s been continuously called out for claiming to hate healers despite always choosing support heroes herself, presumably so that she can more easily be boosted by her friends and partner.

These days, SSSniperWolf has mostly stayed out of the spotlight, especially within the gaming community. For a while, gamers had a fun time analyzing her videos and discovering the various ways she had lied about her status as a gamer. They also consistently made videos about the possibly fake voice she uses in her videos and the amount of Photoshop in her Instagram photos. 

SSSniperWolf has about 27.5 million subscribers on YouTube, where she mostly shares reaction videos instead of gaming footage. Many of these videos get anywhere from 5 million to 10 million views. It’s safe to say that reacting to TikToks and other online media has been a success for her.
