The YouTube Couple Torn Apart by an "Obsessive" Fan: Ryan Trahan and Haley Pham

10 822
Ryan Trahan and Haley Pham are called out in a video essay, and the response gets very messy.
In early September, a NOburn channel called SPV Laboratories posted a commentary video titled "ryan trahan and haley pham need to press pause."
Before it was made private a few weeks later, the video had nearly half a million views.
The video essay was just over two hours long and contained many criticisms about Ryan's and Haley's decisions and how they presented their actions to their young audience. And then it got really messy.
Runtime: 49:59

Haley DOES seem pretty spoiled, unlikable and detached from reality. (Donating money is great, but that doesn’t mean you’re active in the community either)

i really liked the video spv made. idk if that makes me sound weird but it watched and i really liked it. he never talked about things they hadn't already shared online so i dont think that what he did was weird. he definitely spent a lot of time editing that video so props to him.

Has anyone been worried about Haley like as of right now? I feel like she’s not happy & is ignoring us as her audience. I was subscribed to her but she just changed out of nowhere again and want to see her happy & doing actually what she wants

Idk why these channels bother to put a disclaimer on don't go harass the people in the video.... We saw what happened when twitch banned the word SIMP. It went up 97%. So basically you're just telling everyone to go and harass.

Looks to me like some young people have a stocker who wants to use them for attention and demonize them while staying anonymous. You made a two hour video about them but then whine about your name being said while the guys complimenting you? they handled this in a pretty mature fashion given their age and the fact that this guys whole thing is about how their immature mistakes are a bad influence on young people is really weird. These young people (based off this video only) seem to be handling adult responsibilities and discussing adult topics the best that they can. Growing and figuring out life. Making mistakes. Making money. I get the whole public figure argument but this is going above and beyond coming for these “kids” and for what? Jealous?

To the people saying the SPV guy is creepy. He wasn’t creepy he was concerned because it was two young people telling kids they should. Drop out of school, buy a house, get married, all before they are 100% ready.

Tbh this is just weird. Why even make this video? It's just instigating.
They're making their own choices and making entertainment out of it. Whether you like the content they put out or not doesn't matter. Whether you think they're giving a bad impression to young people doesn't matter. That's a viewers parents responsibility to care about. There's tons of youtubers out there that are bad impressions for young people.
Leave them alone, if the choices they made are the wrong ones they will learn from it.

I honestly think the way he responded to the video very maturely and it says a lot about who he is as a person. Well at least from what I can see in his 5 minute insta story. But people can be very convincing. 🤷‍♀️ idk.

I guess I understand why she’d want the nurse to have a better bedside manner since the reason she was there was because of an issue in a very private place for her. Sure, the nurse’s job is to find out what the issue is, but when it comes to an area that many women are very private about, I’d expect a nurse to have good bedside manner and to try to make their patient feel more comfortable. Making a patient feel more comfortable can help the nurse find out what is wrong as well since the patient is more likely to cooperate.

If they are mature enough let them. Omg. Yes they are young but I feel like everyone with a bit of common sense would know that getting married before being an adult isn't my jam.... I don't understand people logic 🙄😕 let them live their lives and if that was a wrong decision then they would face the repercussions of their actions. And let's not forget that these "impressionable teens" have parents so it's not like everyone is going to get married without parents consent. 🤨😒

Idk it’s kinda weird how people are siding with this spv dude he seems kinda obsessed with their life and it’s kinda creepy ngl. Idk why anyone is siding with anyone in this it’s kinda weird how people are kinda inserting themselves into their life it’s creepy. Spv seems kinda too obsessed in their life in a creepy and concerning way.

I feel people are taking the weird tweets too seriously and just don't have a understanding for what an ARG is. People are saying the guy is crazy obsessed with them but that's like saying any youtuber who makes documents are obsessed with their topics. It requires deep diving so there won't be any baseless claims.

Personal opinion: Haley has a natural personality that likes to let loose and go party and do things like that, but she is restraining herself with Ryan. Maybe the "love-bombing" was onto something? I dunno. But I think that's why she comes across as immature and all over the place. I've had friends like that that just are restless and can never seem to be satiated no matter what

As annoying and naïve as this Haley (not so much Ryan) is, this SPV dude's got a Phd and he's making a fully-edited 2-hour video critique on these young adults and the way they live their lives? Wow... way to put your Phd to good use. I don't care how many followers they got and how they may be misleading those followers. It's up to the followers to decide whether they go down that path or not. There are tons of people spewing garbage like Haley did on social media but if you do/believe something cuz some internet celeb says so, you are garbage yourself and nothing, not even SPV wannabe God, can prevent that. Also, so what Haley said all those ignorant things on social media. Maybe she'll learn a thing or two when she's lost substantial number of subs. This SPV dude... I really hope he sees a psychologist soon. Spending years obsessing over strangers (and playing God) is really really creepy.

Honestly, I don’t see anything wrong with these people (outside of attitude of course). Some people really are more mature at certain ages, and there will always be a risk of influencing people who aren’t as mature as you into committing to things they aren’t ready for, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re in the wrong for living their lives. Aside from that though, the guy “exposing” the couple must be running out of material because this is not worth an entire video essay.

Ok I dated someone I believed was my soulmate and everyone around us believed it too. We were together for just under 4 years from 16-20. I always had doubts, not that I loved him but with our age. I love him still but I am too young to know what I want rn and I’m changing too much. Him and I are still friends, I’m thankful for our relationship but so happy he let me go. We had an engagement ring and everything but I always vocalized it wasn’t guaranteed

Okay im not gonna watch the entire video.. but why do yall care co much about their lives. If they want to buy a house LET THEM. If its not financially responsible theyll found it out eventually .. and then still its only on them. Im not saying i agree with everything they do, and i would do things differently. but its still THEIR CHOICE and their lifes. And if u dont agree. Just dont watch them

Y’all, I don’t think Haley and Ryan are responsible for showing the struggle of home ownership when they’re house hunting. They’re trying to create fun house hunting content, not make an analysis on why or why they shouldn’t buy a house... Ultimately, they’re creating content that shares a fun view of their life perspectives. They don’t show every transparent moment of their lives, they don’t show much of the struggle, their content is glamorized and that’s ok
It’s the same situation with the Greece and the birth control situations. She discussed her personal experiences, and everyone came for her like she was giving formal advise. I agree, she’s more influential than she realizes and she needs to be more careful with her words, but I don’t think it deserves this immense criticism, especially considering her immediate apologies for both.
Considering them immature for not listening to online trolls and instead taking the advise of family and friends just seems so off to me. That feels like a mature take, listening to those who truly know you instead of those online.
I really don’t understand much of his criticism, and it seems as though he was way too involved in their personal lives and criticizing their personal decisions based on the limited information they release online.
