Why is #PutTheMaskBackOn trending on Twitter? Dream face reveal, explained

Dream receives mixed feedback after his long-awaited face reveal.

For years, the YouTube superstar Dream entertained viewers with the Dream SMP and dozens of Minecraft speed runs and challenges. Unlike his online peers, Dream refused to show his face, despite the demands from his community. It became a running joke among fans, prompting Dream to tease his viewers with faux face reveals several times. On October 2nd, 2022, Dream finally revealed his face to the internet, receiving mixed feedback from his community.

Some viewers applauded his courage since the anonymity of the internet tends to bring out the worst in people. A few of his fellow content creators, like BadBoyHalo and AntVenom, encouraged his decision in the comment section, stating how proud they felt upon watching the video. On the other hand, the #PutTheMaskBackOn tag is trending on Twitter, which is a reference to Dream's mascot character.

In Dream's original song, Mask, he sings, "I wear a mask with a smile for hours at a time." The song's music video depicts his mascot struggling with daily tasks, all while wearing a mask that shrouds his identity. In a rush of negative feedback, the #PutTheMaskBackOn tag became viral, with thousands of individuals mocking Dream's face reveal.

Under this tag, users compared Dream's appearance to unattractive characters from film and video games, including the Goblin from the game Clash of Clans and Rumpelstiltskin from the Shrek movies. Users refuse to hold back their criticism, calling Dream "ugly" and asking him to "put the mask back on." Despite the community-wide hype over Dream's face reveal, it still seems as if there are mixed opinions.
