YouTuber Deji to be sentenced over dangerous dog charges

In September 2018, popular YouTuber Deji Olatunji was part of an altercation with his neighbors when his German Shepherd dog, Tank, allegedly bit and caused “very nasty injuries” to a woman collecting a parcel from his front porch.

According to Deji, Tank had merely “nipped” the neighbor in response to being beaten over the head with the parcel, resulting in purported external damage to the pup’s face.

Additionally, the YouTuber claimed that law enforcement was attempting to censor his videos on the topic, and even claimed that local police had detained his dog without notice for training as a K-9.

However, reports from BBC now state that both Deji and his mother have admitted to “dangerous dog offenses” a year later, with the two scheduled to be sentenced on October 25.

The youngest Olatunji sibling admitted in Cambridge Crown Court that Tank was “dangerously out of control,” with his mother also pleading guilty to her role in the altercation.

Judge David Farrell QC stated that the dog had bitten Deji’s elderly neighbor twice, causing “very nasty injuries” after Deji’s mother had “caused the dog to be let out” of their home.

Deji, InstagramDeji went to the highest level of UK court to retrieve his dog, Tank – but instead was sentenced for owning a dangerous dog.

That’s not all: Tank reportedly bit another neighbor, “causing no injury” after Deji exited the house to restrain his dog. This is a claim that Deji initially denied, arguing that the neighbor had tried to kick the dog to get a rise out of the animal.

“You know why?” Deji asked in a video on the topic in 2018. “Because he wanted the dog to attack him, so he could make a claim.”

The YouTuber later published a petition to retrieve his dog from the authorities, which currently boasts over 441k signatures at the time of writing.

Both Deji and his father were charged with two counts of owning a dangerous dog in January 2019, according to a speaker for the Cambridgeshire Police. Those charges have finally come full circle, with the YouTuber and his mother now pleading guilty to counts that Deji had initially denied.

The sentencing comes mere days after Deji uploaded a video claiming that he was going to court to retrieve Tank, calling the ordeal “insane.”

Deji has yet to speak further on the subject as of the publication of this article.

A fan of popular YouTuber Corpse Husband has taken her dedication to the next level by getting an image of his hair tattooed on her, after he posted a picture of a single strand of his hair to celebrate one million Instagram followers.

Corpse Husband is a YouTuber who has experienced a rather abrupt surge in popularity this year, accumulating a wave of new fans after jumping on the Among Us hype, scoring views in the many millions for both his old and new content.

He started YouTube in 2015, and focused primarily on narrating spooky stories online with his mesmerizingly deep voice, though notably has not yet revealed his face.

His viewers are certainly passionate, and even won out against possibly the biggest fandom on the planet when fans of Corpse Husband and BTS tried to see who could ‘ratio’ Mr Beast’s tweet the hardest, with Corpse winning by a tiny margin and securing $10,000 for charity.

Corpse Husband’s sudden rise to popularity has been unprecedented.

But one fan decided to take her support to an entirely new level, after Corpse revealed a single strand of his hair on Instagram.

As he doesn’t ever show his face, fans have naturally become curious as to who the person attached to the incredible voice is, and Corpse has played along with people’s curiosity by doing miniscule reveals of different parts of himself.

First it was #onlyhands, and this time around in celebration of him hitting 1 million followers on Instagram, he revealed a single strand of his hair in a reveal he called #onlystrands. The bizarrely atmospheric black and white image now has over 560,000 likes and counting.

A post shared by Corpse Husband (@corpse_husband) on

Dedicated fan CorpseBaddie on Twitter decided she wanted to immortalize the image, and did that in the most permanent way possible by actually tattooing the hair strand on her ribs.

The October 25 tweet revealing the tattoo blew up at a rapid rate, and at the time of writing it has garnered over 30,000 likes.

Speaking about the sudden interest in her brand new tattoo, CorpseBaddie sent a message to her favorite creator. “So Corpse Husband this blew up. I have one question, can I play a game of Among Us with y’all?”

Though he has yet to respond, an Among Us collab between the pair would certainly be entertaining for those that have followed her tattoo journey.

The tattoo is just a testament to how unprecedented Corpse Husband’s rise to popularity has been, and this is certainly only the beginning of his fans’ loyalty.
