Amid the backlash, Paul Zimmer erased the content on his Instagram and YouTube channel and essentially vanished from social media for 18 months until he returned late last year to introduce Becker to his fan base. Following Zimmer’s announcement that Becker was taking over his social media, YouTube star Danny Gonzalez posted his own video accusing the former star of trying to give himself a new identity. In the video shared on 30th December, Danny Gonzalez says:
“Paul Zimmer was one of Musical.ly’s former biggest stars. He disappeared, and now he’s now back. But he’s pretending that he’s not. He’s pretending to be someone else. He’s pretending that’s he’s just a different dude. Paul’s really hoping nobody noticed. But guess what? I noticed and so did everyone else.”
In the clip, Gonzalez shared photos and videos of ‘Troy Becker’ taking an acting class with Zimmer’s fiancé, Jamie, in June to show that Zimmer and his doppelganger are not only identical, but they also have the same voice.
