Joshua Block (born August 7, 2001), known online as World of T-Shirts (@worldoftshirts), is a TikTok star who gained popularity in 2020 for his eccentric personality caused by his autism. This would lead to more funny videos & live streams in New York in 2021. During this time, Josh would get a hold of a live fish and was caught stomping on it on a sidewalk. This appalling video helped him gain an even larger following on his platforms. Also around this time, Samantha and Jared became associated with Josh, possibly having influence over him.[1]

More recently, Josh has taken up rampant alcoholism while terrorizing the streets of New York City and refuses to seek any help. Throughout his TikTok career, Joshua has had several online interactions with Daniel Larson, especially due to their overlapping fanbases. Joshua’s controversial manager, Michael Quinn, is another notable figure in the Larsonverse.

After Daniel met up with Joshua and Quinn in May 2023, Joshua mostly fell out of relevance in the Larsonverse, though he still maintains his own following and is considered a lolcow in his own right. Following the April 30th Arrest, some Daniel Larson fans have begun closely following Joshua as he continues to spiral into other addictions and cementing his status as a lolcow.

Personal life

Joshua was born on August 7, 2001. His high-functioning autism is clearly shown through his hyperfixations (such as the New York subway system,) speech patterns, lack of social awareness / empathy, and even occasional meltdowns.[2] In June 2015, Joshua's mother passed away from cancer. Josh has said that his father is a drug addict (ironically). After his mother's death, Joshua's older brother with schizophrenia was sent to a group home, and Josh would live with his grandfather in Long Island, moving from Virginia Beach.[3]

Daniel Larson Records collaboration

In May 2021, Joshua announced that he would sign a record deal with "Daniel Larson Records" and collaborating with him to make a new song, however Joshua canceled the deal shortly after he discovered Daniel's past.

Josh has a legal close call

Joshua warned viewers to avoid Daniel at all costs and that he needed to be canceled. It is unknown how Joshua was made aware of Daniel Larson, however it is likely that trolls (unaffiliated with Management) reached out to him and claimed to be part of "Daniel Larson Records."

Daniel shouts out World of T-Shirts

In May 2021, Daniel posted a TikTok in which he responded to a viral video of World of T-Shirts screaming the lyrics to "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z. In his post, Daniel says, "This message is to World of T-Shirts. In New Yorrrk! (attempting to hit high note)"

A very old picture of Joshua, likely taken in 2019 or earlier.

On January 3, 2023 Daniel posted another video in which he says, "This message goes out to Joshua, World of T-shirts. You need to go back to selling t-shirts because you are not ready for this industry."

On April 27, 2023, Daniel posted another TikTok ominously requesting that his fans, "...stop talking about Josh from past management,"[4] due to the fact that, "...he is banned," with no further clarification. However, it's likely that he was referring to a persona used by Flexburger during the Headset Era.[5]

Travel Arc

Before Meeting

Upon hearing news of Daniel’s plans to travel to New York City, fans and Michael Quinn wanted to see a meet-up between the two figures. On Reddit and TikTok, many people attempted to convince Daniel to find Joshua and fight him. While it seemed neither were interested, Michael Quinn and both of their fan groups certainly were. The consensus was that even if this did happen it is likely that Daniel would back out, to the disappointment of many.

Later on, 'fans' would continually harass Daniel about doing a collaboration with World of T-Shirts. Many fighting with him, or taunting him by claiming that Joshua was on his way to his current location, as well as a plethora of other creative ways to try to get under Daniel's skin.

A frame from the video where Josh and Daniel first meet in person

After Daniel arrived in New York City, trolls attempted to arrange an 'accidental' meet-up between Daniel and Joshua. Daniel was sent to multiple locations that Joshua frequented, being under the impression that Grace VanderWaal would be at these locations. Joshua expressed multiple times on TikTok that he does not wish to meet Daniel, and even had to leave establishments after Daniel was likely to show up at.

After the Bodega Incident, Joshua posted a TikTok in front of Little India Bodega, the location at which Daniel was assaulted. In the video, Joshua announced that Daniel Larson got punched in the nose at the Bodega, and that he, World of T-Shirts, runs New York City.

New York Meet Up

On May 10, after Michael Quinn and Daniel had met two days prior, Quinn got Daniel and Josh to finally meet. Caught on film, as Daniel walked through the doors of the Starbucks at the World Financial Center in downtown New York. Daniel is visibly smiling in the video. The tension of the moment quickly faded as the two shook hands despite all the online arguments, Joshua then recorded his well known rendition of "Empire State of Mind" with Daniel in the background gleefully waving to the camera. The two broke bread together and discussed Josh's drinking problems, and Daniel's experiences along the west coast on a livestream.

Cameo

Around May 29, after creating a Cameo, Josh got an order in which a Daniel Larson fan paid to have him say that he was dating Grace Vanderwaal. Mistakenly however, Josh said that he was doing Grace instead.

In what appears to be Daniel's response, posted around the same time, he announced that both World Of T-Shirts and Michael Quinn are banned from all of his concerts.

Later, this creation lead to fans pushing Daniel to make a cameo, which he eventually did. Since then, Daniel has been long since "B-A-N-N-E-D" from Cameo while Josh continues to make money, yet still scamming customers by mostly making videos under 5 seconds. This is a clear example of how if Daniel gave the bare minimum effort into doing Cameos he would still be on the platform.

Continuation

Daniel claimed Josh and Michael Quinn were creating "beef" with him on July 25, 2023.[6] A day earlier, he wanted Josh to be sent to North Korea.[7]

On August 5, Daniel claimed that "Rorld" of T-Shirts' penis fell off after he went skinny dipping in the Hudson River.[8]

On October 8, Daniel said "Fuck you Michael Quinn" and called out Michael Quinn's alleged control over Josh, emphasizing his alcoholism.[9]

Josh was aware of Daniel's probation in November 2023.[10]

On December 20th 2023, Joshua and Michael Quinn would do a sit down interview with BowereyBoi. When Daniel Larson was brought up, Joshua said that Daniel was nothing but trouble and when asked to describe Daniel, Josh would say "BAD."[11]

On December 28, in a YouTube community post, Daniel once again blamed Michael Quinn for Josh's alcoholism and says Quinn harrasses him (which many of his fans would probably agree with.)[12]

On April 23, Daniel would state that Josh's "charges" needed to be lifted and Michael Quinn to be "charged" by the "court's."[13]
