Then when I went to add friend and tried that it said that "Wiplash" gamertag does not exsist.

The system doesn't recognize things like spaces or capitalization as different gamertags. So even if you try to add it as a friend and it doesn't show up, there may be something slightly different about the way the other user created it.
