YouTube star Ms Rachel has sparked fresh backlash after posting a video to social  media celebrating Pride Month.

The popular children’s content creator who boasts almost 10million subscribers on her channel, posted the controversial clip to her TikTok account ‘MsRachelForLittles’ on June 1.

‘Happy pride to all of our wonderful families and friends! This month and every month, I celebrate you,’ Rachel Accurso said, donning a pink headband and multicolored shirt.

‘I’m so glad you’re here. I’m so glad you’re exactly who you are’.

The YouTube sensation, who appeared to anticipate fallout with some of her audience following heavy criticism from the Jewish community last month after failing to mention Israeli youngsters in a post about fundraising for children in global conflicts, then added: ‘To those who are going to comment, they can’t watch this show anymore because of this support, no worries and much love your way.

‘God bless. I am not chasing fame or views, I’m standing strong in love,’ she concluded.

The video was then shared by Daily Wire host Matt Walsh, who ripped into Accurso on X, formerly Twitter, and urged parents to take their business elsewhere.

‘Ms. Rachel is an extremely popular YouTuber who makes content for babies and toddlers.,’ he wrote.

‘She just posted a video celebrating Pride Month. This is a message to conservatives parents. She doesn’t want your business. You should respond accordingly’.

The post racked up over 6.1million views and 3.4k comments – mostly from outraged parents and conservatives.

‘I’m never watching Miss Rachel again,’ one user commented.

Another said: ‘This woman creeps me out and so do all the weirdos she has on her shows. I tell my wife to turn her off anytime I see her try and put her on’.

A third added: ‘As a father of two children who love Ms. Rachel, this saddens me. Ms. Rachel will no linger be played in my house’.

‘That’s the end of her now. Never again. NEVER again. Boycott!’ a fourth responded to the post.

The latest wave of backlash for the YouTuber comes just over two weeks after Accurso was slammed for fundraising for children suffering in global conflicts without mentioning Israeli youngsters.

The social media star claimed she had been bullied after announcing a fundraiser for the UK-based charity Save the Children, adding that it ‘hurt so bad’ people were saying she didn’t care about all kids.

She said in a social media post advertising the fundraiser: ‘I’ll make videos for little ones, and all the money raised on my end will go to Save the Children’s emergency fund, which will go to children living in conflict in Gaza, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ukraine.’

‘Children should never experience the horrors of war,’ she added.

But while the personalised cameos she offered were all snapped up within just a few hours of her post going live – raising a staggering $49,500 – she was heavily criticized by members of the Jewish community.

‘When I saw her fundraiser, it really triggered me,’ Jewish mother Moran Gold told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.

She added: ‘I think it’s lovely for an educator to try to bring light to children in Gaza or in Sudan or in Congo or in Ukraine – but I don’t understand why it’s a deliberate attempt by her and her team and Save the Children to never mention Israeli children.’

Accurso responded to the backlash in a teary follow-up social media video, where she clarified she cared ‘deeply for all children,’ adding: ‘That is who I am. I love my neighbor’.

Accurso, said she had been bullied after announcing a fundraiser for the UK-based charity Save the Children, adding that it ‘hurt so bad’ people were saying she didn’t care about all kids 

‘I love every child. Palestinian children, Israeli children, children in the US, – Muslim, Jewish, Christian children -, all children, in every country. Not one is excluded,’ she said.

Accurso also sparked anger among her viewers after claiming she was forced to take a ‘mental health break’ after parents expressed  outrage over he co-star Jules Hoffman asking to be referred to with the pronouns ‘they’ and ‘them’ while on her show that is predominantly watched by toddles and young children.

She also revealed she was bullied online last September, claiming trolls had targeted her over her weight and looks.

The teacher posted a video on Instagram to reveal that while she was concluding her second masters in education she was met with criticism over her weight and told to ‘try and be prettier to teach toddlers’.

In an accompanying caption, she wrote: ‘Last week, Real comment I got… I have better qualifications to teach than being thin and pretty. And that’s not where my value is! #moms #toddlermom #mama #msrachel #beauty.’

Her YouTube bio reads: ‘Our educational videos for kids are informed by research and are full of learning standards that will help preschoolers thrive!…

‘Along with baby videos and toddlers videos, we have preschool videos for children. We also have music classes and teach sign language.’
