Antonio Brown slams Logan Paul after falling for fake fight poster

YouTube star Logan Paul is aiming for a boxing match against the NFL’s Antonio Brown, but so far, the two have been unable to make a deal, which explains Brown’s shock upon seeing a mockup poster for their potential fight.

After bantering back and forth on social media about their boxing prowess, things got physical once Logan Paul and Antonio Brown went head to head after the Jake Paul vs AnEsonGib boxing match.

However, that wasn’t the last of their “rivalry,” thanks to an overeager fan who pulled together a poster in preparation for a boxing match between the two stars.

The poster, made by London-based graphic designer Rob Hand, features Paul and Brown facing off against a red and blue background and was later published by Instagram media outlet “TheBreadBatch.”

Even sporting a “placeholder” date and venue, the flyer looks incredibly legit to those not in the loop.

In fact, it was so convincing that even Brown himself thought the poster was real, prompting an Instagram tirade against his YouTube rival.

“This is really getting out of hand with these young YouTubers,” Brown commented.

“Business is business and respect is respect! What’s going on here is not a case of respect or good business… you and your team are promoting my likeness to generate revenue before we came to an agreement.”

That’s not all: ironically, the NFL star falling for this fake poster could end up making their fight even more of a possibility, as he called for Paul and his team to “send the contract so we can take care of business.”

Wow!! This is really getting out of hand with these young YouTubers… Business is Business and Respect is Respect!! What’s going on here is not a case of respect or good business; a young business owner, @loganpaul you and your team promoting my likeness to generate #Revenue before we came to an agreement. I ask that you and your team send the contract, so we can take care of business. At this point there’s NO FIGHT AGREEMENT!!! From #TEAMBOOMING

This comes as welcome news to those hoping for their fight, as Brown reportedly shut down two “multi million dollar” offers from Paul in the past, prompting the internet star to threaten him with a “diss track.”

Sports broadcasting service DAZN is also in talks with Brown and Paul, although a date and venue have yet to be revealed, with promoter Eddie Hearn stating: “This isn’t a YouTuber, this is a national sports star who was a huge star in a sport that’s followed by basically the entire country. …We’d like to make this happen but speaking to his agents, his priority is to get on a team.”

Things are getting heated between the NFL’s Antonio Brown and YouTuber Logan Paul, pointing ever more toward a potential boxing match.

With all eyes trained on the pair, only time will tell if they will actually come to an agreement, leading to yet another massive chapter in the history of celebrity boxing.

Dave Portnoy calls out Bryce Hall for using Addison Rae rumors for clout

The ever-present ‘are they, aren’t they’ situation with Bryce Hall and Addison Rae was brought to the forefront on the ‘BFFs with Dave Portnoy and Josh Richards’ podcast, as the host grilled the two TikTok stars on dating rumors that usually result in more clout for online celebs.

Hall’s break-up with Rae was highly publicized, as would be the norm for some of the biggest names in social media today. However, ever since their split, people have been speculating if (or when) the two would ever get back together.

The stars haven’t exactly been helping their case, either, especially since both have been spotted in numerous videos or clips together post-breakup that are further fueling the speculation.

But Portnoy has had enough of the mystery and did his best to cut right to the chase: “You (Hall) and Addison are still together, no?” At that point, Richards can be heard saying something that sounded like an affirmative of Portnoy’s inquiry, while Hall made a few attempts at driving the conversation elsewhere.

The point initially started with the trio talking about recent beef between Hall and Zach Clayton that ended in a fist fight.

But when the TikToker accused Clayton of being fake with his influencer status, Hall glazed across his previous relationship with Rae.

“Why don’t you say it? I don’t understand the whole thing, like these little smiles, these little teenage smiles. Like, why don’t you just say it. Who cares?” Portnoy said before going on. “Maybe you guys (are being calculated), like ‘Yeah it’s obvious, but we’re just tagging people along doing the romance sitcom. Not going to say I’m dating the girl, because I want the pop to come down the road.’”

In the midst of it all, from what Portnoy has seen himself at the Sway House, influencers like Rae and others are at the LA mansion “all the time.”

For social media stars, being in each other’s spheres of influence is just business. But Portnoy picked up on something more while being at the house.

“I was at the house, and my vibe is you guys are together with these girls, you just don’t put the official title,” Portnoy said. Both Richards and Hall were reluctant to give any weight to the claims, until Portnoy reminded them of the receipts.

Richards says, “He just outed us [unintelligible] –”

“I mean that’s a f***kin’ fact,” Portnoy responded. “We have it on video.”

“No you don’t (have video), that was (Blake Gray and Amelie Zilber),” Richards said.

“We do. We had the cameras rolling. When I sat down at the (Sway House) couches, yeah (Addison Rae) comes over, (Nessa Barrett) comes over, like still kinda dating. It’s on camera,” Portnoy retorts.

That’s when selective memory took over for Richards and Hall, who were still grinning at each other while increasingly looking like they had more to uncover.

While Hall and Richards were being a little flippant in their responses, Portnoy expects the truth to come out eventually.

Until then, there’s a lot of social media impressions to be made for everyone involved – as long as Hall and Rae’s names keep surfacing in the rumor mill.
