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.
In June 2015, LtCorbis launched the @LtCorbis Twitter feed, gathering upwards of 11,000 followers in the next eight months. On August 10th, the LtCorbis YouTube 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.
On March 9th, Redditor Pyrocrapanal posted an LtCorbis video about originality on YouTube to the /r/pyrocynical subreddit.

"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 subreddit was launched for discussions about the YouTube channel. On March 12th, an entry for LtCorbis was created on the YouTube Wiki.
