- There was a chatrealm riot during Christopher Coppola's only NSFW appearance. Most people felt he was too talky and serious and all the chat realm wanted to see were funny videos. It didn't help that every video chatrealm loved was panned by Christopher and ones that he liked were ones that chatrealm did not.
