Is Dream Racist?
Dream fans, or "stans" as they are called by haters, were of course quick to say that the allegations are fabricated bullcrap. So did Dream himself. But before we get to his response, what is he even defending against?
The answer - this clip:
It is but a snippet of a 30-minute stream recording where the person that says "pop pop n****" first is addressed multiple times by the moniker Dream.

That recording is supposedly from 2017 and speculations on whether it's actually that Dream quickly swirled. The man's reaction was that of disgust and he believes there's some campaign going on that's aimed at bringing him down:
Just so people are aware, people are sharing a video of some random guy saying the n word and saying it's me, as well as a random account with a gross name history and saying it's mine.— dream (@dreamwastaken) March 25, 2021
Neither are me very clearly. People are disgusting.
Just so it's here and not just on my private account; I didn't have the account name "DeltaNinja" ever (not me), I wasn't "Dream" until 2019, and the people who originally spread this obviously know it's fake and are trolling (#dreamisoverparty)— dream (@dreamwastaken) March 26, 2021
The account Dream is talking about is another part of the newly found racism accusations against him. Said "DeltaDream" account has a pretty nasty name change history and naysayers are linking it to Dream. Something he vehemently denies.
So... IS DREAM RACIST?!
We... don't know. I mean, even if none of this is true, he can still be racist. Is it true tho? Doesn't really look or sound like it is, yet the whole thing has such a strong vibe of "it's gonna turn out true in the end" that we're already feeling sorry for the poor stans.
