Popular YouTuber Deji Olatunji continues to fight for the return of his German Shepherd, Tank, after the animal was allegedly stolen by law enforcement in September of 2018.

While Deji claimed that Tank had merely nipped his neighbor (who allegedly hit the dog over the head with a parcel), a speaker for the Cambridgeshire Police claimed that both the YouTuber and his father were charged on two counts of owning a dangerous dog.

“Olayinka Olatunji, 52, and Deji Olatunji, 22, were each charged with two counts of owning a dog that was dangerously out of control,” the spokesperson stated in an interview with Metro UK. “One count with injury and one without.”

Tank was seized by police after reportedly attacking Deji’s neighbor, who had come to collect a package from the front stoop of his home while the Olatunji family was away. Additional reports claim that Tank likewise attacked the neighbor’s son-in-law, who Deji accused of “wanting the dog to attack him, so he could make a claim.”

Furthermore, Deji speculated that law enforcement were training the dog as a police K-9, after being held in a kennel awaiting a charging decision – although authorities denied this claim.

Deji was made to sign an Acceptable Dog Contract following the incident, after which he and his family placed Tank in a kennel. According to Deji, police removed tank from the kennel into a police-approved holding unit, which Deji claimed to have no knowledge of beforehand.

Deji created a petition for the retrieval of his pet, which currently sits at over 400,000 signatures as of January 23. 

He likewise uploaded a video to his second channel as an update for fans, stating that Tank “probably feels like he’s just been let go” after the six-month waiting period.

Deji and his father were released on bail, and a court date has yet to be set to settle the matter.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
