YouTuber Oladeji ‘Deji’ Olatunji uploaded a video criticizing popular YouTubers’ ‘breakup’ videos, where he poked fun at video celebrities for using their relationships as ‘cash-grabs.’
One of the YouTubers featured in this video was Alex Wassabi, another popular personality on the platform. Deji took a crack at his breakup with now ex-girlfriend Lauren, saying that their breakup video was a “nice, easy way to get views,” and cited the three total videos the couple had made on the subject.
Lauren didn’t take kindly to the accusation that she would fake a breakup for views. She called Deji out in a Tweet, where she called his videos “pathetically desperate.”
Wassabi had similar sentiments toward the situation. He likewise responded to Deji’s comments on Twitter - and made a pretty drastic threat.
“Make all the desperate for views videos you want about me,” he posted, “but if you ever speak Lauren’s name again, I’ll end you. It’s not a threat, bruv, it’s a promise.”
He even went on to say that he’d knock Deji’s “pathetic, untalented ass out” on their next meeting, and told him to stay in his brother’s shadow.
Deji since responded to Wassabi’s threats in a scathing Tweet, where he made sure to mention Lauren’s name a total of six times.
“Lauren finally realized what a waste of space you truly are,” he wrote. “Lauren can now finally grow as a better person now that she’s away from you.”

While this isn’t the first time the two YouTubers have had beef, it could very well mean an actual fight is on the way. With the KSI vs Logan Paul rematch set to throw down in February 2019, there is a possibility that Deji could face off with another popular YouTuber in the stateside ring.
