Danny Gonzalez begs people to stop bizarre TikTok Joker trend

Popular YouTuber Danny Gonzalez has asked TikTok content creators to stop following the bizarre ‘Joker’ trend on the app, with users contorting their faces resulting in strange and uncomfortable videos.

As with any other content platform, TikTok users can get huge by following trends and appealing to what is popular at the time, as evidenced by the increasingly-famous dances and lip-syncing commonly performed by the likes of Charli D’Amelio and Addison Rae.

That doesn’t mean, though, that all trends are a good thing, and Danny has found one that has made him (and now his viewers) wildly uncomfortable.

Gonzalez has accrued nearly 4m YouTube subscribers with his funny videos and critiques of social media.

In certain corners of TikTok, a ‘Joker’ trend has slowly been emerging, with users contorting their faces and seemingly acting like intimidating superheroes while making what is supposedly a face like the Batman character.

During a video simply titled “Joker TikToks Stop Please,” Danny pleads with two popular TikTok stars – who have almost 14 million followers between them – to stop making the videos, while also asking his viewers not to click off the video because of how “uncomfortable” the viewing is.

Gonzalez calls out the two main creators who popularized the trend, rizxtarr and faraaz_zs, showcasing some clips of them as the Joker and some of the weird things that occur.

In the first clip, you see rizxtarr simply crack his neck and screw his face up, taking on the Joker aesthetic, which would maybe have been fine had it not escalated to whatever it has become since.

Through several TikTok videos, riz and faraaz prevent crime and pick up women when channeling their inner Joker, and Gonzalez is clearly mind blown at how there is supposed to be some correlation between the Tiktokkers’ faces and their new-found abilities.

It’s almost impossible to understand how or why this trend started, or what the intention really is, but there’s obviously enough demand for Joker videos as evidenced by these two creators’ incredible follower counts.

Who knows – maybe most of us are just behind the times on this one, but it’s fair to say that this is pretty out there as far as TikTok content goes.

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
