Controversy

In November 2013, SSSniperWolf notoriously taken down two videos from GCXBU "The Truth of SSSniperWolf" and "Exposing SSSniperWolf" during his Thanksgiving family vacation to the Bahamas.

In October 2015, SSSniperWolf posted a video claiming that GirlGoneGamer faked the footage in her Call of Duty Let's Plays, going so far as to post a video (since set to private) claiming to expose GirlGoneGamer.

On August 10, 2016, SSSniperWolf was sued by Engimahood as she publicly exposed his real name and slanders his name as a sex offender.

Several Overwatch players have accused SSSniperwolf of toxic behavior in matches, to the point of being notorious within the Overwatch community.

On July 2017, SSSniperWolf got exposed by Faze Censor. Mister Sausage and SSSniperWolf are accusing him for fake text messages. However, Censor went to Verizon and retrieved his old text messages and conversations with SSSniperWolf. Then, she violently threatens to sue Faze Censor for the old text messages Faze Censor received from Verizon.

On March 11, 2018, it was announced SSSniperWolf would be appearing on the following week's Good Mythical Morning, but when the announce video received a high level of dislikes and drew a lot of comments from people who weren't being their mythical best her appearance was cancelled and the announce video was deleted from the channel.

On March 23 2019, SSSniperwolf won Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards for Favorite Gamer. This was met with a lot of backlash from many people on the internet who stated that she was not a true gamer due to the majority of her content being reaction based as of 2019. Other people began believing that the KCA's were rigged and completely biased considering the other people nominated for Favorite Gamer such as Markiplier, Jacksepticeye, and Ninja who have more gaming based content. Several users then began to put offensive inputs and theories on why she won, with one being that she only won because she bribed the judges with her sex appeal.
