How Matan Got the Name ‘Bill Clinton Kid’
In December 2022, Matan attended the 2022 Game Award, and when the video game “Elden Ring” won Game of the Year, the young YouTuber stealthily joined the game developers as they walked up on stage to receive their award. He patiently waited for his turn as the game developers gave their acceptance speeches, then when he got a chance to speak, he leaned into the microphone and said with a thick accent, ‘Hey, my turn. You know, real quick I want to thank everybody and say that, I think I want to nominate this award to my reformed orthodox rabbi, Bill Clinton. Thank you, everybody” as the security rushed to escort him offstage. The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has stated that a police report was taken, but no arrest related to the incident was made. Shortly after the incident, content related to ‘Bill Clinton Kid’ began making rounds on Twitter, and numerous memes were created, which expanded his online character. Matan’s fame increased significantly, and he began receiving numerous interview requests – he was later interviewed by Lilith Lovett and ShortFatOtaku about his actions.

Even rarely speaks about his romantic life in interviews and media; there is no evidence of him having a girlfriend. Moreover, he is still underage, and is probably focused on his education and blossoming social media career.
Rumors and Controversy
Shortly after the Game Awards incident, Even appeared in the little-known podcast by NeonSniperPanda, in which he had a chat with four OnlyFans content creators. He got into a heated argument with one of the models and asked her to name any ten books she knew about, to which she only named one: “Game of Thrones.” The clip went viral, and became the subject of edits by Sigma males on TikTok and other social media platforms.
Matan has ‘stream sniped’ (the practice of finding out where a streamer is streaming from in real life) several famous online streamers and YouTubers including Kai Cenat and xQc. He previously ‘stream sniped’ iShowSpeed aka Speed, caught him off-guard streaming at Shake Shack, and offered him a jersey that had been signed by the famous soccer Lionel Messi, knowing well that he’s a die-hard fan of Ronaldo.
Height, Weight, and Physical Appearance
Even is of White ethnicity and has brown eyes and long dark brown hair. He stands 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall and weighs around 130lbs (59kgs). His chest, waist, and arm sizes are 36, 28 and 11 inches respectively.
Matan has been called out for faking his accent and exaggerating his facial expressions. In an interview video posted on his TikTok page, a girl is heard asking him about the authenticity of his accent, and he insists that it’s authentic. Matan is heard without an accent when he is interviewed about the 2019 Hong Kong social movement by Owen Shroyer, and as a result, it remains unclear whether his accent is real or fake.
Even is a rising content creator whose main source of income is brand endorsement deals and his monetized social media platforms. He has a reputed net worth of close to $100,000 as of late 2023.
