Calfreezy reveals intimidating DMs from James Arthur after Sidemen beef

UK YouTube star Callum ‘Calfreezy’ Airey has revealed the intimidating Direct Messages he received from X Factor winner and platinum recording artist James Arthur, after the singer’s beef with the Sidemen.

The clash first occurred ahead of KSI’s highly anticipated boxing match against Logan Paul in November 2019, prior to which KSI released his first single from his upcoming album, which featured some of the biggest names in hip-hop in Rick Ross and Lil Baby.

James Arthur didn’t take kindly to the fact that KSI had such big names on his track, saying that he must have paid “$150k” for the Rick Ross feature, and went on to show support for Logan Paul during fight week.

Calfreezy is extremely close to the Sidemen, and even lives with member Wroetoshaw.

One of the biggest people Arthur took an issue with in the ensuing Twitter beef was Calfreezy, a close friend of the Sidemen, who called the arena-touring artist a “wetty,” UK slang for someone who is boring or overly emotional.

Now, Cal has revealed the threatening DMs he received from Arthur amid the beef, though he seems a little more amused than worried about what was said during his appearance on JaackMaate’s Happy Hour podcast.

Reading the message, he said: “The state of you. Stop acting hard. You’re just trying to get a cheap laugh off of kids. Aren’t you, like, 25? This is between me and you, now. I’m messaging you directly. I’m not playing games, man, that’s seriously offensive.”

The group seemed to find the messages hilarious, and Freezy said there was a lot there but it was all just “waffle” about being offended by it.

The YouTuber, who has over 3 million subscribers, said that Arthur’s showing support for Logan Paul was clearly his attempt at being a wind-up, so it became fair-game for him to win Arthur up in return.

Though there was clearly a lot more said in the message than Calfreezy reads out, he clearly thinks it’s not anything worth worrying about and was making jokes about it throughout – so maybe he didn’t take it as seriously as Arthur did.


Thomas Petrou reveals Hype House could be moving again

Hype House co-founder Thomas Petrou has hinted that the content collective could be moving to a new location, once again, after multiple instances of their address leaking online.

The Hype House is one of TikTok’s most popular groups, comprised of several high-profile content creators who live under a single roof to make the most out of their videos and social media posts.

However, being internet-famous is no cakewalk, as overly enthusiastic fans have leaked their address multiple times online, resulting in a crowd of viewers clogging their driveway and generally disturbing the peace of their neighborhood.

Thus, the Hype House — alongside rival group the Sway House — have had to pack up and move quite a few times, but it doesn’t look like their moving days are over just yet.

In an October 27 vlog, Thomas Petrou revealed that he and his Hype House homies are looking for a new home, although they haven’t exactly nailed down a solid location at the moment.

“We’re looking into moving,” Thomas said in the vlog. “Not necessarily right this second, but we’re looking at properties today.”

Although the group found one home that several of them liked (the roof of which Thomas unfortunately showed off during the video), it doesn’t seem like things are set in stone, giving the group some wiggle room if they find a more suitable abode in the interim.

It makes sense that the House would want to move; in a series of Instagram posts in July, Petrou revealed that over 100 visitors would visit their home per day, making for a fairly chaotic living situation for just about everyone involved.

As previously mentioned, the Hype House aren’t the only ones facing such troubles. Even the Sway House and YouTuber David Dobrik have dealt with major invasions of privacy as of late, with strangers showing up to his doorstep and leaving their animals at his front gate.

While it’s definitely cool to meet your favorite internet stars, it’s important to remember that they are people, too, who are deserving of their own personal privacy — no matter how many followers they have on social media.
