About

JustAWormArt is an artist most known for their artwork depicting online influencers and content creators as sweaty, pale and generally unflattering. Throughout 2023 and 2024, JustAWorm became popularized among content creators, particularly YouTubers, who began commissioning him to draw artwork of various people in his signature style for thumbnails. In May 2024, streamer Keffals accused JustAWorm's artwork depicting her for a SomeOrdinaryGamers video of being transphobic, which JustAWorm denied, leading to controversy and JustAWorm deleting his X / Twitter account.

Online History

While the exact date JustAWormArt started posting art on X[1] is unclear due to his account's deletion, the artist became increasingly popularized throughout 2023 for his artwork depicting influencers, content creators and online figures as sweaty, sickly and disgusting. Some examples include drawings of iDubbbz, LeafyIsHere and Mutahar, aka SomeOrdinaryGamers (shown below).[5]

On October 1st, 2023, JustAWormArt's drawing of YouTuber JacksFilms in his signature art style was featured in a video on JacksFilms' YouTube[2] channel that garnered over 283,000 views in seven months (shown below).



JustAWormArt was commissioned more and more regularly throughout 2023 and 2024, often by other creators, to draw artwork of the subjects of their videos in his signature sweaty style. Notably, on May 11th, 2024, SomeOrdinaryGamers used a piece of commissioned artwork depicting Keffals in said style on a YouTube[3] video criticizing Keffals that gained over 587,000 views in two days (shown below).



Keffals vs. Mutahar "Transphobic Artwork" Controversy / Account Closure

On May 11th, 2024, the day SomeOrdinaryGamers uploaded his video about Keffals, Keffals made a post on X[4] accusing Mutahar of using a "transphobic caricature" of her (i.e. the JustAWormArt artwork) on his thumbnail (shown below, left).

The post led to discourse over whether or not the caricature was transphobic, with many defending JustAWormArt for depicting everyone in that style, not just trans people. That day, JustAWormArt posted a response to the drama denying claims that their art is transphobic (shown below, reuploaded).

On May 12th, JustAWormArt's X account was seemingly shut down or deleted. Although there is no official reason why it was deleted, some speculated that it was due to the backlash and criticism he received from those accusing him of being transphobic.


koofal ล @keffals Follow ... I understand people have criticisms of me. I don't think I am above being critiqued. That said, was it really necessary to use a transphobic caricature of me in the thumbnail while also not using my pronouns in the video announcement?? Mutahar @OrdinaryGamers Subscribe Uploaded a new video regarding a serious fraud of an activist known as Keffals. Over an hour of deconstructing her various lies and examining her terrible lies will prove to you why she is danger to people they represent and those surrounding them. 3:44 PM • May 11, 2024 377.8K Views Just A Worm S @JustAWorm....10m: The cartoon I drew of Keffals isn't "Transphobic", if anything by my standards I went easy lmfao. People are just going after my cartoon because it's easier then addressing the contents of Mutahar's video. And to be clear, I have no intention of changing my style in the future. 17 75 388 Just A Worm S ♥ 8 @JustAWormArt There are also plenty of trans people who've asked me for unflattering drawings of themselves and think it's funny. It's just the difference between people who have a sense of humor about this kind of dumb s---, and those who don't.
