Flirting allegations[edit]

On February 2nd, 2021, DM released a TwitLonger detailing the relationship between him, Raffi-X, and DM's ex-girlfriend Kish within the last few months. He revealed that Raffi-X had feelings for and flirted with Kish despite their age difference (27 and 16, respectively), and that he tried to prevent DM from getting into a relationship with her. DM initially decided to leave the situation in the past believing that Raffi-X had changed for the better, but he became uneasy with Kish's relationship with Raffi-X, which was exacerbated after his relationship with Kish soured. DM eventually confronted Raffi-X on the relationship, where he notably stated that he didn't believe what he did with Kish was wrong.[3]

Although he initially stated he would post a TwitLonger response, Raffi-X instead briefly deactivated his Twitter account. Hours later, he briefly reactivated and apologized to DM and Kish for his actions.[4] He has since stated that he has no intentions to return when offline resumes.[5] He has since deleted his Twitter account.
