But, the community is rallying together to support Alton's loved ones.

On Wednesday, writer and actress Issa Rae created a GoFundMe page to raise money directly for Mr. Sterling's family.

Drama in the land of YouTubers!

Two very popular YouTubers — Ethan and Hila, who together make up H3H3 — are being sued by another YouTuber after they made a reaction video to his vid.

And the Internet has a LOT to say about it!!

Even better, though, the couple has figured out an ingenious way to use the money they've been given by supporters worldwide — they are donating ALL of it!

But more on that in a second… first, the back story if you're not up on the YT crowd…

Ethan and Hila have been making reaction and 'roast' videos of crazy things they find on YouTube, and when they came across a channel called MattHossZone, they decided to film another one of their famous video responses to one of the channel's disgusting, misogynistic uploads.

The video — Bold Guy vs. Parkour Girl — is cringeworthy, so it's no surprise Ethan and Hila laid into it. Ch-ch-check out MassHossZone's original vid that started off this whole controversy (below):
