Minecraft content creator Dream, one of the platform’s most influential figures, has made a surprising move to resume his faceless persona. This decision comes in the wake of extensive online criticism he faced following his face reveal in 2022.

For many years, Dream was recognized by his online avatar, an enigmatic figure in a mask, which became a symbolic representation of his brand. In October 2022, Dream took a significant step to unveil his real face to the world in a highly anticipated video that swept across social media.

Despite numerous fans and fellow creators greeting Dream’s face reveal with enthusiasm and support, there was an equally strong contingent of internet trolls and critics who chose to mock Dream’s appearance. The backlash seemed to significantly influence Dream’s decision to revert to his previous masked persona.

In a recent announcement video, Dream expressed his intention to remove all online images of himself and return to his masked gamer persona. He began this process by deleting his ‘Hi, I’m Dream’ video along with his appearance in the Mr. Beast Video.

“The same company that made the Spider-Man mask, Batman mask, and many other superheroes, made me a mask so that I can be Dream all of the time. Hide my identity, even in public, at McDonalds, or any place I need to go,” Dream said in his announcement. He also voiced gratitude to his supporters, saying, “Thank you all from the bottom of my heart to those that supported me, even though I am ugly. I appreciate you all more than you could ever know, and I will be working on my face while I’m masked again.”

Currently, it remains unclear whether Dream’s decision to don the mask once again is a long-term change or a brief response to the criticism he faced. The gaming community is particularly interested in how this will affect his appearance at the upcoming VidCon Anaheim event, where Dream is scheduled to headline.
