YouTuber Cody Ko has been called out for “cyberbullying” by the Dobre Brothers, and has responded to their challenge of a boxing fight. This follows previous accusations of “cyber bullying” from Jake Paul. 

Cody Ko is a comedian and commentary YouTuber, with over 4 million subscribers. Many of his videos mock fellow YouTubers, all in the name of good fun, but some of these channels have taken it harder than others.

Jake Paul infamously confronted Cody in person, labelling him a ‘cyberbully’ for making fun of his videos. Fans took Cody’s side though, with Jake’s video of the encounter getting 696,000 dislikes.

YouTube: Dobre BrothersCody Ko has made a total of three videos about the Dobre Brothers and their YouTube content.

The Dobre Brothers, who Cody Ko has made a number of videos on, clearly didn’t learn from Jake Paul’s error, and have called out Ko for cyberbullying them, and even challenged him to a fight.

One of the brothers, Marcus, says “all of us are being bullied by this kid named Cody Ko. He’s just a bad person.” Another, Darius, agrees, “Yeh, this kid is honestly annoying […] He’s a small YouTuber, who we came across, who is making a really big living making fun of us.”

Some fans pointed out that it was odd to call Cody Ko a ‘small YouTuber’, given he has almost double the subscribers of Cyrus’s own channel – the brother who he had mocked and who challenged him to the fight.

Predictably, like Jake Paul’s, the video has been inundated with dislikes.

Cody himself did respond to the challenge, but made it quick, and opted not to react directly the video addressing him.

He simply said he would not agree to the fight, because he is “built like a croissant”, and didn’t want to roast their video because “they clearly feel some type of way about the fact that I’ve made videos about them.”

However, he joked that he was “changed man” because of the Dobre Brother’s emphasis on ‘spreading positivity’, before proceeding to react to many of the hateful comments that their fans had sent his way.

It’s safe to assume that the fight will not go ahead, so we’ll never see if Cyrus does “bring meaning” to Cody’s last name by “KOing” him.

Boxing has become the go-to solution for YouTube rivalries, ever since KSI and Joe Weller first stepped into the ring. This was followed by KSI facing off against Logan Paul in two bouts, after the first ended in a draw.

There’s more YouTube boxing on the horizon too, as Jake Paul is set to take on AnEsonGib on January 30.

Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
