Christian Guzman and Nikki Blackketter, the Ross and Rachel of youtube power couples, have broken up yet again. Less than two months after their reunion the pair have announced via dueling youtube videos that they have split for a second time.

Christian’s video starts off with him reading a written statement.

This past Sunday it was brought to my attention that I was lied to about something very important…to be honest I feel betrayed…I can’t get over it…my relationship with Nikki has ended…Thank you for the support.

He then spends what feels like 37 years trying on shirts and enjoying #legday before finally cutting to  a bizarre, rambling rant about how he was “screwed over” in his relationship group and his friend group. He continues by assuring everyone that he is focusing on what he loves – “for me, that’s making content”. He finally tells those “in a situation that’s similar” not to lay in bed and “mope and feel bad for yourself”.

And just what is this situation? According to his once-again ex-girlfriend Nikki, Christian found out that during their breakup, Nikki blacked out after a night of drinking and according to her, a friend took intimate liberties with her while she was in this state.

On a night in May I was out with my friends…one of the friends I got dropped off with at my house, while I was completely blackout drunk, ended up fooling around with me. And I did not know it happened until the next morning…

She explains her side in a counter-video. The video seems to essentially be her answer to the rumors going around from Team Christian fanswoles that she cheated on him with one of his friends, causing the breakup.

Of course all this means it’s time for the s**t shaming and victim blaming to begin. Nikki’s instagram posts are already filling up with comments about how Christian’s friends “went deep inside them sugar walls”, informing her she is “playing the victim a little too hard”, and helpfully advising her to “Stop getting drunk and cheating. s**t”. Isn’t it wonderful to be alive in such a progressive, feminist time in history?
