―Wilbur Soot

Will Gold[1][2] (born: September 14, 1996 (1996-09-14) [age 24][3][4]), better known online as Wilbur Soot (formerly known as SootHouse Wilbur), is an English musician, solo YouTuber, and Twitch streamer who is best known for being the frontman and editor of the group YouTube channel SootHouse and previously edited for fellow YouTuber JackSucksAtLife.

He has released an album on Spotify and has made a few viral parody songs such as "Karen, please come back I miss the kids", "The 'Nice Guy' Ballad", "I'm In Love With An E-Girl", "Internet Ruined Me" and his latest one being "Your New Boyfriend". Currently, he mainly does live streams on Twitch and then posts edited highlights onto YouTube. He is also the lead vocalist and guitarist for the indie rock band Lovejoy that debuted in May 2021 with their EP Are You Alright?.

Biography

Wilbur was born in Suffolk, England on September 14, 1996, but he grew up in Brighton, East Sussex. He attended Sussex Downs College in Lewes, England and recently finished a Bachelor's degree in Editing and Post Production.

One of the first channels Wilbur had was named "Settings66" with a boy named Ben in near Ipswich, Suffolk, East of England. The first video dates back to May 6, 2008. It consists of many IRL videos of the two boys seemingly acting out roleplay scenarios, and even two gaming walk-throughs. Wilbur claims that he doesn't know the password to this account, and if he did, he would delete every video on this youtube channel, because it's embarrassing to him, he claims.

He also owned a channel called "Minecraft and Donuts" with a girl named Sophie. The duo made Minecraft videos on player-made maps. Their first video, "Doll test Minecraft part 1," was posted on May 22, 2011. They uploaded consistently until "Will and Sophie play: The Works | Part 2," when Sophie had to go to the hospital to have an operation. Subsequently, they stopped uploading for 2 years. In "I'M BACK! +An Apology," Will stated that she was fine but would not appear in videos anymore. However, he never uploaded on the channel again, and in late 2020, every video in it was privated but more than half of the videos were unprivated.

Another channel of his was named "ALittleBritOfWill" where he posted short films, music and vlogs.

He was involved in the first SootHouse video titled "Bulgarian Real Estate" which showed him and Soot George mocking websites selling cheap houses in Eastern Europe. It was posted in April 2017. He also appeared in many other SootHouse videos and is known as the leader. Despite the first SootHouse video being posted in 2017, Wilbur was active on YouTube beforehand, having posted several now-deleted videos.

Wilbur was the one who came up with the name "Soot", with its origin coming from a Tamagotchi forum.[5]

The Editor Wilbur ARG

From December 16, 2018, to February 23, 2019, there was an active ARG (Alternate Reality Game) made by Wilbur on the JackSucksAtLife channel. It has since ended but has since remained unsolved, though hoaxes about its supposed solution have emerged in subsequent years.

The ARG starts with Wilbur emailing Jack in a humorous way, demanding to be his editor. The link to the video is here. Jack decides to let Wilbur edit a video, causing Wilbur a panic as he was away from the computer when Jack finally responded. 48 hours later, Jack received the video, and it went up. Notably, there was a scene at the end of Wilbur, talking to the audience and acting paranoid. Jack decided to let Wilbur edit another video, in which Wilbur snuck in a secret link, beginning the ARG.

SMPEarth

SMP Earth is a server set up by Wilbur, JoshA20, chippledipple and a few others. It is a 1:3000 scale map of the Earth with 75+ creators. In the server, people can own countries and claim land for that country. Creators role play with other creators and forge alliances or make enemies.

The server was not Wilbur's idea but was already in development, However, the team had decided to abandon the project, thinking nobody would want to play on the server. Wilbur, having heard this, decided to step in and offered to lead the project himself, seeing the potential in the idea.

The server is now up and running, and has a wiki documenting the events that have taken place so far. Wilbur is the founder and leader of the SMP Earth faction known as Newfoundland. He has created a railway system connecting his land to other sections of the map, and refers to himself as a "social butterfly".

DreamSMP

See also: Dream Team Wiki

Wilbur is also known for playing on Dream's Minecraft server, the Dream SMP. He created the “independent nation” of L'Manberg on July 31st, 2020 as stated in one of his videos. This was to be a “separate server“ from the DreamSMP server. He was accompanied by TommyInnit, Fundy, Tubbo and Eret. Dream, Punz and Sapnap weren't happy with what Wilbur was doing so declared war on L'Manberg. This is referred to by many as the DreamSMP war. Most of his streams on the server have been edited and uploaded onto YouTube. During the "Great War", L'Manberg went to battle against the rest of the DreamSMP. Eret later turned out to be a traitor and caused the L’Manberg rebels to lose their armor and weapons.

However, Wilbur's citizenship in L'Manberg was revoked after losing an election against Jschlatt, who decided to officially change the nation's name to Manberg. Afterwards, Wilbur and TommyInnit decided to join forces with Technoblade, later joining them would be former Manberg Secretary of State Tubbo , and Nihachu in order to start a new nation in the server known as Pogtopia. The staff of the newly-named Manburg consisted of jschlatt as the President, Quackity as the Vice President, GeorgeNotFound as the Co-Vice-President, Fundy as the Secretary of State, and JackManifoldTV as an ambassador to the DreamSMP server. However, on the 17th of October, Quackity quit their job as VP and joined Pogtopia in his desire to take down Jschlatt.

After Jschlatt's death, Wilbur had gave presidency to TommyInnit. TommyInnit then stepped down and gave the podium to Tubbo on account of having "unfinished business". Tubbo was then dawned as president, but behind their backs Wilbur had run off into his TNT room. Ph1lza had then shown up before he had pressed the button. Directly before he presses it, he quotes Eret's famous line- "It was never meant to be". While Manberg is being blown up, Wilbur pleads for Ph1lza to kill him. Ph1lza exclaims "You're my son!" before he gives in and kills him.

A part of Wilbur lived on in the SMP as a ghost, known as Ghostbur. He wrote anything he can piece together in one of his many books in his once growing (now destroyed) library. Ghostbur only has memory's of his life when he was alive and dead that made him or Wilbur happy. He manages to showcase his musical talent during his adventures and has an immortal blue-wooled sheep named Friend.

A back-to-back attempt to restore Ghostbur's mortal soul to make him Wilbur again by Ph1lza and others, but on the second try, they accidentally merged Ghostbur's soul with that of the deceased Jschlatt, now Glatt. Fans have referred to this as the birth of Glattbur.

After Tommy and Tubbo defeated Dream and put him in prison, Ghostbur could be heard once again. We couldn't see him but he talked to Tommy and Tubbo (mainly Tommy). Tommy and Tubbo were very shocked when talking to Ghostbur and were mostly quiet, which made Ghostbur a bit upset because he wanted to talk with his brother and friend. Tommy talked shortly how he and Tubbo defeated Dream and how Tubbo nearly died. Tommy then explained why he didn't kill Dream. It was to bring him (Wilbur) back to life. Ghostbur was clearly upset becuase, as he put it, he was "free" and "liberated" once he entered the After Life. Towards the end of the conversation, Ghostbur and Tommy had a heated argument, calmed down, and smiled before Ghostbur was pulled back to the After Life. Since this, we haven't seen any other signs of Glattbur or Ghostbur.

On April 29, Tommy and Ghostbur snook into Pandora's Vault to assassinate Dream. However, the warden caught them, and prevented Tommy from doing so. Then, Dream killed Ghostbur, and in doing so resurrected the original Wilbur. He excitedly tells Tommy that he "has a lot to do" before logging off again.

Skyblock Randomizer

Skyblock Randomizer is a type of series popularised by Wilbur Soot. There have been 2 seasons of Skyblock Randomizer.

Wilbur spawns into the vast void of nothingness explaining the data pack and the premise of the series. Diamond boots were the first item Wilbur received from the sky gods. The first block that is placeable which Wilbur received was a birch gate. Many of Wilburs pets died in a matter of minutes.

In Season 2, Wilbur collaborates with Pyrocynical - who is less experienced at Minecraft. They each started on separate islands, built to each other and attempted to make a lovely house. There are a few minor new features like command blocks that double items. Just like in the first season, many of the pets died instantly, including "Tax Evasion" and "Mario".

The Rajjchelor and Nihachu

The Rajjchelor (now known as Love or Host) is a dating game show hosted by Austin (formerly known as Rajj Patel) on Twitch. In the Rajjchelor, an influencer comes on the show and eliminates people based on their tastes for a woman. Then, Austin reveals if they picked host (which means that the woman didn’t have an interest in the influencer and was only in it for the clout) or love (which means that the woman had an interest in the influencer). Many big influencers have appeared on this "game show" such as Jschlatt, Quackity and most notably, Wilbur.

When Wilbur appeared on the Rajjchelor, he eliminated everyone from the show except for Niki. Austin then reveals that Niki picked love for Wilbur. After the Rajjchelor, fans of both Wilbur and Niki shipped them together as a couple, even claiming that their relationship rivalled CallMeCarson's and Kate's, which was seen as legitimate at the time. Wilbur and Niki have appeared on each other's streams and have played Stardew Valley together. The month after the Rajjchelor, Wilbur would visit Germany and meet Niki for the first time in real life. Niki said during one of her streams that she and Wilbur are just friends and were never dating or together.

Brighton meetup

On August 8, 2020, Wilbur met up with his friends Ph1LzA, TommyInnit, Fundy and Niki in Brighton. This was documented in a vlog posted by Tommy. After going to the arcade and purchasing 2 "vlog guns" (nerf guns) in return for arcade tickets, Tommy, along with Wilbur's housemate & fellow Soothouse member David, stole Wilbur's wallet and office key to gain access into his office where he streams. Tommy started streaming and was interrupted after 5 minutes by Wilbur who had discovered he was in his office and streaming. The live stream ended abruptly and Wilbur quickly went live to apologize for Tommy's misbehaving. After all the shenanigans, Tommy ended up accidentally leaving his vlog guns in Wilbur's office. As of May 2021, the vlog gun has somehow ended up in the possession of GeorgeNotFound.

E-Girl song trilogy

In 2020, Wilbur released three comedy songs about an e-boy simping for and obsessing over an e-girl, I'm In Love With An E-Girl, Internet Ruined Me and Your New Boyfriend. These songs are a commentary on simping culture, mocking the misogynistic behaviours within it. He is playing a character in these videos/songs.[6] These songs are all part of the same storyline, highlighted by the repetition of the “She’s beauty, she’s grace” lyric and the retro computer theme present in all three released songs. Wilbur originally said that the songs were going to be part of a quadrilogy[7], but has since clarified that YNB might be the final song of the series[8]. The potentially fourth song, Soft Boy, was teased on one of Philza's streams, as well as one of his own, with a January/February 2021 release hinted[9]. On March 19th, he sent a sneak peek of the song's instrumental to Philza for him to play on his stream.

In I'm In Love With An E-Girl, the teenage protagonist is obsessed with an e-girl. He still lives with his mother and his biggest struggle in life is having his PS4 confiscated. Wilbur plays into the teenage boy stereotype by describing the e-boy waking up in the afternoon, immediately checking his phone, drinking red bull, vaping and using Snapchat. The stereotype is then continued with the line “I punched a hole through my bedroom wall”, as teenage boys often show their aggression through destructive behaviour, even though the protagonist denies this, playing it down to not scare off the e-girl.

He is aware that the relationship is nonreciprocal but pursues it regardless. “I’ll make you forget every guy that came before me,” shows how confident he is in himself and his ability to impress the e-girl. She gives him attention, fulfilling the bare minimum of his requests, “I wanna be the girl that you fall asleep on call with”, but explains that it’s all she’s doing for him, also showing that she’s reduced him to being just another boy and that he isn’t as special as he thinks he is.

From this, it can be assumed that the pair briefly had some sort of online relationship until the e-girl realised that his behaviour was overly obsessive, and blocked him, “Let’s completely block all contact”. He then proceeded to stalk her social media and harass her in response to this decision, leading her to have to contact the police. His response to this is pure confusion, exposing how unaware he is of his behaviour.

After this has occurred, he has become aware that his behaviour is strange but accepts it, and blames the fact that what he looks for in a girlfriend is heavily affected by unhealthy idealization and the search for perfection influenced by the internet and other media. His main motivation for acting the way that he has is because the media he consumes presents this sort of behaviour as the norm and that he still holds onto the hope that she will unblock him and respond to his messages.

In Internet Ruined Me, the protagonist is in his early twenties. He has become an e-boy, “[I] spend all my time on social media, this is the state that I’m in”, and has embodied the mentality through being depressed due to the e-girl breaking off their relationship.

In Your New Boyfriend, the protagonist is aged 26 and works a 9-5 office job. He is self-aware that he lacks social skills, but doesn’t see this as a disadvantage, and is “one click away from” going insane, implying he could do something drastic online. He now has one singular regret in his life: that he isn't dating the e-girl.

It is heavily inferred across the songs that the e-girl has a Twitch channel where the protagonist is active in her chat, and regularly gives her large monetary donations, presumably a Tier 3 subscription (the highest tier at $25 USD per month). This is commonplace behavior for people who simp for e-girls, as they put them on an unreasonable pedestal in the hope of developing a genuine romantic relationship with them and gaining sexual gratification.

Throughout the music video, he can be seen incessantly emailing the e-girl from the alias Lonely Boy. She consistently deletes his emails and forwards the creepier ones to her legal team. She has a restraining order against him in response to his stalking and obsessive behavior.

The e-girl now has a new boyfriend, Jared, whom the simp has met. He regularly compares himself to Jared and is very jealous of his physique. He also feels personally attacked by him dating her, referring to him as “the one who took [her] away from [him]”. He believes that he knows more about her than Jared does, as he watches her live streams, and expresses his hatred towards him throughout the song.

Trivia

  • The e-girl parts of the songs are sung by Chevy, an Australian music artist.
  • The trilogy draws from two of his previous songs, The Nice Guy Ballad and Discord Song.

Internet Ruined Me

  • Wilbur submitted the music video for a university assignment and wrote a dissertation on the VHS effect, which he created from scratch instead of using a plugin.[10]
  • James Marriott contributed the electronic drums for the song.

Your New Boyfriend

  • The song was first previewed on one of Tommy’s streams in July 2020 and then sung on Niki’s stream on the 17th of August, and is the only song of the trilogy to have had a preview months before release.
  • Wilbur’s adlib of “Jason Derulo” is a comedic reference to the singer adding his own name into his songs. It may also make reference to Bo Burnham's "Repeat Stuff" which begins with the same line.
  • In the music video, the e-girl's name is shown to be Pandora Braithwaite. This is a literary reference to the Adrian Mole series where the main character is in love with Pandora yet she rejects his advances.
  • The music video trended #1 in both the United Kingdom and the United States, beating Taylor Swift’s music video for her song willow, and reached over 2.5 million views within 24 hours of being released. The video also hit 10M views in just over 7 days and 13 hours of its release.
  • Lonely Boy’s email address is lonelyboy20xx@... as to keep the trilogy's timeline ambiguous.

Your City Gave Me Asthma

  • "Jubilee Line" is about how much Wilbur hated London and wanted to leave. He said "Since moving there I managed to get this horrid phlegm cough for 2 years straight, doctor’s confirmed it was caused by Pollution, later on I started to exhibit signs of asthma." Which explains why the name of the album is 'Your City Gave Me Asthma'.
  • "Saline Solution" is about how Wilbur has major health anxiety, which basically means he is always thinking about the possibility that he might be sick, or dying of something that he is unaware of.
  • "Since I Saw Vienna" is about his traveling tendencies and has seen many places including Vienna. This song represents his tendency to move around a lot.
  • "Losing Face" is about a woman who left him for another man. He expresses his self-doubt and jealousy caused by it, he “Loses Face” while spiraling over alcohol and self-indulgence in this song, with the song reading as an angry message just for her.
  • " Your Sister Was Right" is about Wilbur feeling dejected and insecure in himself, and how he isn't a compatible Love Interest for anyone.
  • "La Jolla" is about a man who doesn’t feel good enough and has distant dreams of leaving to start fresh somewhere different. This could be a metaphor for Wilburs hatred of London and the Self-Doubts that plague his mind.
  • "I'm Sorry Boris" is about his conflicting thoughts on leaving London, solely due to the fact that if he leaves London, his health would improve but he would also be leaving his friends.

Minecraft Championship

Minecraft Championship is a Minecraft Tournament for YouTubers and Streamers run by the Noxcrew, in which 10 teams of four compete in a series of 8 minigames decided by the participants. A point multiplier makes each game worth more as each round passes, incentivizing teams to vote for games they might be bad at early on in the event. At the end, the two teams with the most points face off in a round of ‘Dodgebolt’ to decide the winner of the tournament. This makes it possible for a team to win despite potentially having fewer points than the runner-up.

  • MC Championships 1: Team Yellow Chickens. Teamed with Ryguyrocky, JackSucksAtLife, and Ph1LzA. Placed 23rd individual and his team placed 7th overall.
  • MC Championships 2: Team Red Rabbits. Teamed with Technoblade, Dangthatsalongname, and Strawburry17. Placed 13th individual and his team placed 4th overall.
  • MC Championships 3: Team Cyan Creepers. Teamed with Technoblade, RTGame, and ToxxxicSupport. Placed 18th individual and his team placed 5th overall.
  • MC Championships 4: Team Purple Pandas. Teamed with Technoblade, Ph1LzA, and TommyInnit. Placed 17th individual and his team placed 1st overall.
    • Their team ended up winning, having gained almost a 3,000 point lead over second-place and beating the Green Guardians (comprised of PeteZahHutt, Vikkstar123, Michaelmcchill, and King_Burren) in the final round of Dodgebolt, despite Wilbur accidentally killing himself in Skyblockle and muting Tommy partway through Parkour Warrior. Individually, Wilbur scored 2129 points overall, putting him in 17th place out of 40. For winning, Wilbur and his teammates received an MCC coin engraved with the event’s logo.
  • MC Championships 5: Team Lime Llamas. Teamed with Technoblade, Ph1LzA, and VoiceoverPete. Placed 19th individual and his team placed 5th overall.
  • MC Championships 6: Team Pink Piglets. Teamed with Technoblade, Ph1LzA, and SeaPeeKay. Placed 23rd individual and his team placed 4th overall. (This week's team was named in honor of Technoblade.)
  • MC Championships 7: Team Orange Ocelots. Teamed with Technoblade, Ph1LzA, and SeaPeeKay. Placed 20th individual and his team placed 2nd overall, but they lost the final Dodgebolt round against the Green Guardians (comprised of PeteZahHutt, Failwhip, Eret, and HBomb94).
  • MC Championships 8: Team Red Rabbits. Teamed with Ph1LzA, Dangthatsalongname, and TommyInnit. Placed 16th individual and his team placed 6th overall.
    • Just before the event began, Wilbur stated that people on the MCC subreddit were saying that Tommy was a genuinely good player in MCC but that he messes around when he is on a team with Wilbur. As Wilbur was now in possession of both of Tommy's vlog guns (from the Brighton Meetup), he decided to set him an ultimatum to make Tommy try his best at the tournament. His ultimatum for Tommy was as follows:
      • 1st place: Wilbur will mail Tommy the vlog gun and send him a £5000 donation
      • 3rd place or higher: Wilbur will mail Tommy the vlog gun
      • 5th place or higher: The vlog gun won't get destroyed and Tommy can join Sleepyboisinc
      • 6-10th place: The vlog gun will get destroyed
    • After 3 of 8 game rounds, Red Rabbits were in 2nd place, and 1st place was within the team's sights. Due to game glitches and crashes happening throughout the event, they ended up placing 6th, and much to Tommy's dismay, Wilbur stomped on the vlog gun on stream. As there was still one remaining vlog gun, Wilbur asked Scott (the organizer of MCC who was also on their team) if they could play as the same team next event to try to win without glitches. Tommy was hesitant to agree as he knew his friend Tubbo was playing the next event and wanted to be on the same team as him, but when Wilbur threatened to destroy the second vlog gun immediately instead, Tommy agreed.
  • MC Championships 9: Team Red Rabbits. Teamed with Ph1LzA, Dangthatsalongname, and TommyInnit. Placed 21st individual and his team placed 5th overall.
    • This event, Tommy was playing for the second vlog gun. Wilbur's ultimatum for Tommy was the same as the one for MCC8, with one difference:
      • 1st place: Wilbur will mail Tommy the vlog gun and send him a £15000 donation
    • Wilbur's stream crashed mid-game, but the team managed to finish in 5th place. Which means Tommy is now an official member of Sleepyboisinc. The vlog gun was deemed safe at Wilbur's office awaiting collection by Tommy. However, when Wilbur went to fire a shot from the vlog gun in honor of getting top 5, he accidentally broke it as Tommy was watching.
  • MC Championships 10: Team Aqua Axolotls. Teamed with TommyInnit, Tubbo, and Pokimane. Placed 21st individual and his team placed 7th overall.
    • For the entirety of the game, Pokimane didn't have the right texture pack on.
  • MC Championships 11: Team Violet Vampires. Teamed with TommyInnit, Fundy, and Quackity. Placed 14th individual and his team placed 3rd overall.
    • This was the 4th consecutive time and 5th time in total Wilbur and Tommy were on the same team.
      • This is as of MCC12 their last teaming.
    • Wilbur's voice broke during Hole In The Wall, the very first minigame this MCC.
    • Wilbur and Tommy mentioned they were predicted by many people on Reddit to place 6th at the highest and last at the lowest since most believed they would throw for content with Quackity playing it for the first time. Basing their predictions on MCC10's Aqua Axolotls.
  • MC Championships 12: Team Green Guardians. Teamed with Ph1LzA, TapL, and GeorgeNotFound. Placed 19th individual and his team placed 1st overall, winning Dodgebolt and the tournament.
  • MC Championships 13: Team Cyan Candy Canes. Teamed with Ph1LzA, Quackity, and Fundy. Placed 27th individual and his team placed 6th overall.
    • This is the 9th time Wilbur is on a team with Phil.
    • It was his last stream in the office as they had evicted him.
    • During the middle of Ace Race (Game 4) Wilbur's PC crashed. This caused him to instantly stop streaming. Though his stream came back a few minutes later, he was the only player not able to finish the race and as a result their team fall in the leaderboard.
  • MC Championship 14: Team Pink Parrots. Teamed with Fundy, JackManifoldTV, and Ph1LzA. Placed 35th individual and his team placed 6th overall.

Controversies

Slazo drama

In 2019, the YouTuber and former associate of Wilbur named Slazo had rape allegations brought against him. In the light of this, Wilbur showed his support for Slazo's accuser. Not too long later, Slazo released a video proving his innocence. In a thread by Twitter user TheMemeBorber, they interviewed Wilbur where he stated that if Slazo broke the law then he should go to prison, but if he didn't then he should be left alone and continue with his career, confirming that Wilbur had decided to distance himself from the drama due to the multiple arguments given throughout. Wilbur also mentioned that he doesn't actively follow drama.

Abandoning of his personal EMail account

Wilbur addressed in a stream that many people had started to find his personal email account. He said that the majority of the messengers were actually haters, and even some people threatening him. He said that he was forced to abandon the address all together due to the overwhelming amount of hate he received. Many fans have said that Will should actually report these accounts, however he hasn't talked about this since the stream.

Cancelled over Among Us color

On September 27, 2020, Wilbur was streaming playing Among Us game with popular YouTubers, including TommyInnit, Quackity, Jschlatt, and Tubbo. Wilbur was finding his own color Bright and turns out Jschlatt stole it from him, and so Wilbur decided to choose Yellow. A minute later when Tubbo joined the lobby, he found out that Wilbur took his own color Yellow, he then began complaining about Wilbur taking the color Yellow and asked him to swap the colors, but Wilbur didn't answer or swapped the colors.

After they finished the round and went to lobby, Tubbo begged Wilbur for having his color back, but Wilbur instead said "I kinda like being yellow now!". Nothing happened yet about it until the next round in Lobby, Tubbo again for the third time begged Wilbur to have his color back, and when Wilbur didn't gave the color back after the game starts, Wilbur's chat got angry at Wilbur for not giving Tubbo's color back instead of thinking it's just a joke. and so they decided to spam Wilbur's chat telling him to give the color back, saying that it's not fair for taking his color since Tubbo is a kid and Wilbur is an adult, calling him immature, and sending death threats to Wilbur. Wilbur discovered his chat was being toxic at him for taking Tubbo's color, then Wilbur decided to end the stream when it has gone too far.

Anti-Semitism song lyrics

On April 5, 2021, a Twitter user made a thread of 25 tweets trying to cancel SleepyBoisInc for "Anti-Semitism, Racism & R-slur" including Wilbur Soot for "Anti-Semitism".

They talked about how Wilbur's song is "Anti-Semitic" from one of his scrapped song's lyric that hasn't been released for a while.

Put me in your book when you inevitably make it to fame. Just make sure you're proxy. Make sure to use my fake name. Call me Hitler, no one will notice the f**king difference. Call it Stalingrad, starve them out, this time you'll write the history books

―Wilbur's scrapped song lyric

The lyric Wilbur was singing about what a previous lover of his would say about him in her autobiography, saying that she would call him "Hitler", but people thoughts that Wilbur wants to be called "Hitler" when the lyric was just someone else was comparing Wilbur to "Hitler" and that it's written to the second person and not to Wilbur. Wilbur apologized on a Twitch stream about the lyrics he made in the past after people forced him to apologize for "Anti-Semitism Song Lyric".

Homophobic song lyrics

In late March 2021, a Twitter user made a thread of cancelling Wilbur for being "homophobic" over a song "Soft Boy" that Wilbur made. The song hasn't been released yet but a few parts of it were leaked from some of his friends' Twitch streams, such as TommyInnit and Ph1LzA.

and It's not an ahegao hoodie it's a work of art. I get turned on by my reflection in passing cars. I'm looking for a window to another world, where I don't feel as LOST and BORED, I just don't wanna be a soft boy anymore... I wanna be yours...

―Wilbur's Soft Boy song lyric

The Twitter user first spread out how the line of the song "I get turned on by my reflection in passing cars" is a "homophobic" and isn't a joke because it was "making fun of gay people" when the song meant that Wilbur was making fun of himself of how he got turned on by his own reflection, Some of Wilbur's fans didn't get the joke of the song and yet still were angry at Wilbur for the "offensive" joke he made.

Wilbur didn't notice any of that cancellation yet, but in April 7, 2021, Wilbur was streaming on Twitch[11], addressing the controversy of some of his past songs and others, such as the song "The 'Nice Guy' Ballad" song and one of the SootHouse video since people addressed Wilbur about it when they weren't happy about it.

Wilbur first talked about the song "The 'Nice Guy' Ballad". In 2017 while Wilbur was playing pubs and open mic nights in London and Brighton, he wrote the song called "The 'Nice Guy' Ballad", one of the lyrics in it, the character that Wilbur is portraying shows that it's an insensitive comment about black people. He used to play the song a lot and even recorded a music video for it, and in early 2018 at the night or club night, someone approached Wilbur, told him that they were offended by the lyric and were really devastated for it. then Wilbur was like "Ah, I'm gonna change that lyric." and so Wilbur did change the lyric and every time he played it, he never used it.

He apologized for the offensive song lyric "The 'Nice Guy' Ballad". He also addressed that he donated a 100% of the income from his song to the Breonna Taylor foundation.

Wilbur then talked about the one of the SootHouse video after checking the hate comments from it, a part of where Wilbur and the group of the SootHouse were mocking accents, and the part where Wilbur said a word and then censored it for comedy value, many people thought that Wilbur said the word slur from that censor but Wilbur confirmed it that he didn't said the slur. again he apologized for the lots of mistakes he's made over a SootHouse and he took down the video from the SootHouse channel.
