In this sad story, he is portrayed as a young boy who attends a form of an American school. Throughout the story, he is continually bullied, harassed and assaulted by other students in his school. The story ultimately comes to a resolution in which a student stands up for Su Tart which causes the other students to feel reluctance and guilt over bullying Su Tart.

Associations

Albert used to date LanasStuff, who owns a beauty channel. However, the two broke up sometime in December 2018. He is also best friends with Jayingee. Albert and Lana bought a house together and did a tour when Jake came over. Albert has now started making videos with his friend and creative director Kaden Fumblebottom, aka JokerKid5898 on Roblox. They have a running joke that Kaden was hired by Albert, and is required to agree with Albert all the time. Outside of close friendships, he has collaborated with many YouTubers like Tofuu and SynthesizeOG. Albert's current girlfriend is FoxKirsten, who is a Twitch streamer. He is also friends with RussoPlays, KonekoKitten, Temprist, and Speedy.

Personal life

Albert has posted a photo on his Instagram of him and his cat Simon, along with one of his father and him. They also have a dog named Bedrock or (Rocky), it has been revealed that Albert also has a sister named Mary Kathryn Aretz.

Before he was big, Albert made many Phantom Forces, Apocalypses Rising (Which are both Roblox games), and CS: GO videos. Albert's current girlfriend, Kirsten, is a childhood friend of his which he had met at a McDonalds. According to Kirsten, they had been on and off for six years before he had met Lana. She has a YouTube channel called FoxKirsten.

Discontinuation of AlbertsStuff

In mid-October 2017, Albert had fully migrated to the Flamingo channel as a result of his videos on AlbertsStuff being demonetized due to his profanity. Since Albert's full-time job is YouTube, switching to a different channel was the only sustainable way for him to generate income.

On August 18, 2020, Albert responded to some backlash he was getting for using a slur on his old channel (AlbertsStuff) a couple of years ago. He apologized on his Twitter for the mature content he had made from the previous years on his old channel. His apology included him saying that he was sorry for the "edgy jokes" he had made in the past in those videos.[11] Later that day, Albert deleted all of the videos on his channel but one, which was ROBLOX - SCARIEST MOMENT EVER IN APOCALYPSE RISING. This is believed because he wanted to keep at least one memory from his beginning.
