TikTokers Bryce Hall and Taylor Holder took a few digs at Austin McBroom over their alleged lack of payment for participation in the “Battle of the Platforms” YouTube vs. TikTok event.
Standing outside a stadium, Hall comments that “this is a six billion dollar stadium, didn’t know that”. Holder quickly responds “is that it? Why don’t we just buy it? With the money from our fi….oh.”
A lot of fans believe Holder said “fight” alluding to the payment scandal. In the video, Hall then reacts by shouting “oh” at the subtle dig.
McBroom has been accused of not paying some participants in the event, which he hosted. This came after the event allegedly didn’t sell as well as initially thought.
The event was expected to pull in about 500,000 PPV (pay-per-view) sales but apparently only made 136,000. This is far less than half the original sales which then put Social Gloves, the company McBroom allegedly owns into hot water.
