As anticipation grows for the YouTube boxing fight between KSI vs Logan Paul and ComdedyShortsGamer vs Jake Paul, the fighters met face to face in LA at the first press conference.

Instead of being a “press” conference though, it turned out more a glorified shouting match as a packed crowd watched on – but it certainly did its job to build excitement for the fight on August 25th.

As the younger brother of KSI, ComedyShortsGamer isn’t so much the star of the show, as the KSI vs Logan Paul fight will headline the event.

But his bout against Logan’s younger brother Jake will still be a massive deal, despite only being arranged due to Jake Paul not wanting to fight KSI (presumably for height and weight reasons).

So, it begs the question – what do ComedyShortsGamer and Jake Paul have against each other? Outside of YouTube fame, why do these two men want to brawl?

ComedyShortsGamer, also known as simply Deji has now done a reaction to the press conference, and explains exactly that in a video titled ‘Why I do not like Jake Paul’.

“At one moment I was going to punch him. Straight up, I’m not even going to lie. Not even joking. He was annoying me, because I was like ‘sit down, dude, can we carry on this press conference?’ I don’t want to hear your lame ass jokes.”

He continued by saying that although the entire conference was somewhat “cringy”, Jake was largely responsible.

“He made it cringe. It was cringy, but he was the main reason why it was cringe. Get a better suit, Jesus Christ.

The only reason I didn’t crack him in the mouth, is because when you see these press conferences and see someone punch, they look bad. Looking back at it, I should have cracked him in the mouth.”

Noah Beck & Griffin Johnson under fire for “cancel culture” comments

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Griffin Johnson are taking heat from critics due to their divisive comments on “cancel culture,” as told during an episode of Johnson’s “Sway Way” podcast.

Also known as “call-out culture,” the term “cancel culture” has become a popular phrase in the past few years as social media has flourished, allowing users to highlight abuse, bad behavior, or other negative actions from people online.

When these bad behaviors are brought to light, the person responsible is usually called out, boycotted and ostracized, causing them to be publicly shamed and often ousted from their professional and social circles due to the resulting backlash.

“Cancel culture” itself is a divisive term, with many believing that it outright doesn’t exist, as those being “canceled” deserve to be called out for their actions and that those who are “canceled” are never truly brought to justice from the outrage.

Still, others feel that “cancel culture” is going too far and is resulting in a toxic online environment — but either way, people are no longer willing to abide bad behavior from anyone, and social media has given users a platform to speak up against things they consider to be unjust.

TikTokers and Sway House members Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck recently spoke out on the social phenomenon during an episode of the Sway Way podcast — and their thoughts on the subject have sparked quite a bit of backlash against them.

“People are getting canceled for things that were totally acceptable,” Beck said. “I don’t want to say that people have gotten really sensitive, but at the same time, they have, and it’s like… there were some things that were acceptable back then that people could say, now it comes back on them five, 10 years later.”

“I mean, I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep,” Beck continued, referencing his own controversial history on social media. “I can see why people think it’s a big deal now, but it’s like… I never thought I would have this platform. I never thought I would have this stage. I was growing up just playing soccer. I liked a few tweets, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time.”

Needless to say, both Beck and Johnson have received a substantial amount of criticism from listeners, with one user writing: “He really said that he never thought he would have gotten famous… so if you’re not famous, you can be homophobic and it’s not a big deal?”

Both boys have yet to speak out on the outrage, which only continues to grow in wake of their already storied history of sparking division among TikTok viewers.
