Here's why teens are mad at Vine/YouTube star Jacob Sartorius

Now some fans allege the 13-year-old digital influencer, who teens label "cutie," has become the bully.

Sartorius  — who has more than 21,000 followers on Vine, 3.9 million followers on Instagram, 598,000 followers on Twitter and around 792,000 subscribers on YouTube — has come under fire after a handful of jaded fans took to social media to share their negative interactions with him.

One fan — who posted a video of their meet and greet — claimed Sartorius body shamed her.

Earlier this year, another fan tweeted screenshots of her alleged messages with the young star, where he asked for nude pictures.

Allegations like this of course divided the community of video creators and fans lovingly referred to as #TeamInternet, with teens either siding with Sartorius or those who call him rude.

The young teen, who recently launched a single called "Sweatshirt," rose to fame with his lipsynching videos on the platform

He also became known for his friendship with digital star/fellow teen heart throb Cameron Dallas (Expelled), and the two co-headlined a popular tour featuring Vine stars called MAGCON. 

Sartorius left the tour however, igniting rumors that the two had a falling out (they also don't follow each other on social media anymore).

Sartorius did not respond to Mashable's reply for comment.

However, it's clear through his social media posts that he is trying to avoid the drama.
