About

Soph, formerly known as LtCorbis, is a vlogger who originally gained online notoriety for delivering expletive-ridden commentaries while playing the first-person shooter games Call of Duty and Counter-Strike. Returning in 2019 under the name Soph, she began posting bigoted commentaries on Islam, the LGBTQ+ community and political correctness. Despite claiming these posts were satirical, Soph was banned from YouTube for violating Community Guidelines on hate speech.

History

In June 2015, LtCorbis[2] launched the @LtCorbis Twitter feed, gathering upwards of 11,000 followers in the next eight months. On August 10th, the LtCorbis YouTube[5] channel was created. The first video was posted on December 23rd, featuring a YouTube Poop edit of the "Here in My Garage" advertisement. On February 1st, 2016, she posted a video commenting on the controversy surrounding The Fine Brothers failed "React World" licensing program. The videos have since been removed.

On February 25th, LtCorbis uploaded a video in which she plays a surfing level in the game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive while retelling an anecdote from an experience at school (shown below). On February 29th, she posted a video titled "BuzzFeed Vs. Men," in which she criticized a BuzzFeed Canada editor who was accused of discriminating against white male job applicants while playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The video was since been removed.

On March 8th, LtCorbis published a video mocking those who refer to YouTube commentary channels as "Leafy clones". On March 11th, she posted a video criticizing vlogger Jacob Sartorius for being "cancer". The videos have since been removed.

Reception

On March 9th, Redditor Pyrocrapanal posted an LtCorbis video about originality on YouTube to the /r/pyrocynical[6] subreddit. On March 10th, 2016, YouTuber Pyrocynical praised LtCorbis in a video regarding inauthentic vloggers on the site, gathering more than 375,000 views and 6,100 comments in the next five days (shown below).



"There's a little girl here who is 11-years-old and she's already mastered the art of memes and memeing and the fact that she can say this intellectual stuff at such a young age, it's really good but really worrying at the same time. She will probably grow up and work at Reddit or something and be like a memeologist or, I don't know, whatever intelligent kids do when they're young."

The following day, The Daily Dot published an article about LtCorbis titled "This sweary, savvy, 11-year-old gamer girl is the future of YouTube." Also on March 11th, the /r/LtCorbis[4] subreddit was launched for discussions about the YouTube channel. On March 12th, an entry for LtCorbis was created on the YouTube Wiki.[1]
