The rightwing pundit called out mukbang YouTuber Nikocado Avocado for 'essentially killing himself on camera slowly.'

Nicholas Perry—a muckbang YouTuber who creates videos using the handle Nikocado Avocado—called out far-right commentator Candace Owens after she weight-shamed him for his food-eating videos.

Owens had earlier released an episode of her podcast titled "Gluttonous YouTuber is Literally Dying for Clicks" in which she called out content creators, in particular Perry, who she said "eats in excess of 10,000 calories in front of the camera."

You can hear what she said in the video below.

Owens said:

"He eats in excess of 10,000 calories in front of the camera in videos that are entitled 'I Hate Myself' as one example, and 'Goodbye YouTube and Life' or 'Celebrating our 700-pound Milestone.' Now, of course, when you eat like that, and you are this gluttonous, it yields depression."
"So obviously what has also happened is that he's doing this because he's getting attention, he's getting clicks, but he's also becoming depressed in front of the world. He's essentially killing himself on camera slowly."

Perry later uploaded a reaction video in which he can be seen enjoying his food as he plays Owens' podcast on his laptop.

Perry responded, addressing Owens' claim he's depressed:

"What if that really triggered me? Luckily, I don't have depression. But I can imagine anyone else being on the receiving end of a video like this, and they probably would feel so bad; God knows what they would do."

He also addressed Owens' claim he has a $7 million net worth:

"According to who?...Have you been in my bank account? Have you seen how much money I get? Ms Know It All, what do you mean I have 7 mill... where is this number coming from? Who put this number out?"
"For the record, a lot of things I do are not monetised, they get red flags. I get a low click-through, low CPMs, because a lot of advertisers do not like what I say... maybe it's too controversial...accept that I am doing what I want to do."

He also took her to task for saying he uses a "BPAP machine"—when she meant CPAP machine—to regulate his breathing when he sleeps because he is so overweight:

"First of all... it's a CPAP. This lady doesn't even know how to tell the truth and I don't even know if it's intentional, I just think anything she hears, she believes, like, 'I read it on a blog site so it must be true, let me make a video about it. She's not even acting concerned about me."
"She's just shaking her naughty, naughty finger at me. That's literally all it is... There's a lot of people [out there] who pretend they're so concerned. I can think of a couple of people right now that have made videos about me... You don't give a crap about me. You're trying to make money off of me."
"Make your own content! Make your own f**king content! I'm original. I make my own f**king content. Make your own content."
"Oh, no—I am your content because if you were to make a video about yourself, no one would f**king watch. I admire that about you Miss Owens. At least you're not going to sit there and pretend and act that you give a s**t about me."

Many applauded Perry's response and joined him in criticizing Owens.

Mukbang is an online audiovisual broadcast in which a host consumes various quantities of food while interacting with the audience. It originally took off in South Korea.

The purpose of mukbang is also sometimes educational, introducing viewers to regional specialities or gourmet spots, though there has been growing criticism of mukbang's promotion of unhealthy eating habits.

Perry is one of the most popular mukbang creators in the world. He has accumulated more than 7 million subscribers and approximately 1.8 billion total views across six YouTube channels.

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
