What happened to the Sister Squad?
Their mysterious absence from YouTube begs the question: What happened to the Sister Squad? And these days it’s looking like we might finally have some of the answers we’ve been looking for. For a while, some fans thought they hadn’t found the time to film together, while others were totally convinced they stopped collaborating because of the Ethma rumors.
Now that the James scandal has taken over the internet, though, the general consensus on Twitter is that Emma and the twins distanced themselves because of James’ behavior. However, when beauty guru Jeffree Star accused James of harassing Grayson, James quickly debunked the claims in a tell-all video with plenty of receipts.
James explained, “I have to admit, bringing up Grayson Dolan was pretty clever. In the height of all these allegations and stories going around, both of the twins unfollowed me, not wanting to be associated [with the scandal]. And fans started speculating that the rumors could be as to why. Too bad that aside from our pre-planned collaborative jokes that happened in the Sister Squad videos — me and Grayson flirting — nothing ever happened between us. And when all this went down, I knew Jeffree was lying because the twins were two of the first people to call me and make sure that I was OK.”
Now let’s get into Coachella, shall we? We all saw the photo evidence of Emma hanging out with Ethan and Grayson. Their best friend, Bryant Eslava, confirmed they were together by uploading pics of the trio to his Instagram. If you’ve seen ’em, you know that James was noticeably absent, which is odd considering he was at Coachella too with a different crew. If they were still a squad, wouldn’t they have at least made the effort to see each other at the festival?
Not to mention, ever since Tati Westbrook exposed James, people have noticed that the rest of the Sister Squad no longer follows James on social media, which can only mean that the squad has officially disbanded.
Of course, there are other theories, too. For example, some fans thought they were just trying to avoid drama between the fandoms, and that Sister Squad videos stirred those rivalries up. NGL, that’s pretty understandable that they didn’t want drama given all that Ethan and Grayson have been through with the death of their father. But despite not hanging out, Emma and James expressed their support for the Dolan’s during that difficult time. In fact, the beauty guru tweeted Grayson some kind words about his father back in January, while it was believed that Emma went to their hometown in New Jersey to keep them company.
At this point, things are clearly still cool between the Dolan’s and Emma, considering they’re openly hanging out and working together. As you can tell, there are a lot of mixed opinions about what exactly happened to the Sister Squad, but in the midst of James’ biggest scandal ever, it’s not hard to see why there would be tons of rumors about the Sister Squad’s fate. Will the squad ever post a video together again? Probably not. Will Emma and the Dolan’s post more collabs? We sure hope so!
