The beef between KSI and Deji doesn’t look to be coming to an end anytime soon, with the younger Olatunji brother appearing on the Logan Paul podcast.

Since fighting the Paul brothers, the Olatunji brothers have gone back and forth with their own personal beef. It blew up in early December with KSI blocking Deji on both Twitter and Instagram, and the pair have traded blows since. 

KSI seemingly tried to clear the air with a tweet stating he’d always love his brother but Deji declined the peace offering. Instead, after releasing another diss track, the younger Olatunji brother took to the Logan Paul ‘ImPaulsive’ podcast to lash out further at his brother.

“This has like manifested. I don’t want to go into full detail but it all kinda started off when I moved away,” Deji stated.

“When we like moved out from that house, I think that’s when it kind of started – he started just distancing himself from the family. He has time to visit the family but he would never just make the conscious effort. He would always put his friends first.

“Not just in like videos or anything but it would be, his friends would say something about me and JJ would believe them over me.”

Deji continued to dish on his brother, adding further fuel to the fire based on the fact that KSI has distanced himself from their family. 

“He even blocked mum and dad. Yeah, on Twitter, Instagram and texts. Everything,” he said. 

“They’re (the parents) on my side. They know he’s messing up and they don’t understand why he’s acting this way. It doesn’t make any sense.”

After being quizzed on a number of topics, including whether or not the beef is fake, the fights between the two sets of brothers and the possibility of Deji boxing KSI, he added that he wants to right the situation. 

“Obviously I want this to get fixed but he really needs to sit down and see for himself what he’s doing wrong. Just from the video he made, his apology, it was such a trash apology in my opinion.

“He was so different to how he sounded on the phone to his video. I didn’t want this to get to the internet but the only way to get through to him is the internet – it’s pointless if I text him. He’s on about communication but he’s the one who sucks with communication.”

Bryce Hall responds to backlash over leaked Brock Pierce endorsement DMs

With the US elections just around the corner, everyone – including famous TikTokers – is gearing up to cast a vote that will change the shape of the country’s future. However, Bryce Hall was on the receiving end of criticism after a leaked conversation seemed to confirm that he was voting for third party candidate, Brock Pierce.

It seems like wherever Bryce Hall goes, drama isn’t too far behind. Only this week, he has been warring with Sway House co-founder Thomas Petrou for reaching out in order to start “fake beef” as well as finding himself in a brawl with restaurant employees, with the LAPD later filing a felony battery report over it.

This time, fans were upset after leaked messages appeared to confirm that Hall was not only endorsing third candidate Brock Pierce, but was also planning on voting for him.

Quick to dispel these rumors alongside fan suspicion over his reason for visiting Wyoming, Hall posted a Tweet explaining that the only reason he was to use his influence for good: namely, by “encourag[ing] the youth to get involved in the political process”.

Referring to the leaked messages, where he seems to confirm he’s voting for Pierce, Hall claims that he was merely “making a joke with an acquaintance,” who then “decided to be an a**hole and share it”.

“The only person I endorse for president is Mamma Hall. Take that to the bank,” he quipped.

However, not all fans were satisfied with his response, with one Twitter user arguing that voting for a third candidate isn’t something to joke about.

The fan said: “The thing is this isn’t something to joke about though? As a black supporter, it’s frustrating because advocating for a third party is advocating for someone who wants to take away my basic human rights so no Bryce I’m not laughing.”

Other fans, however, showed support for Hall, with one Twitter user saying: “What I’m understanding here is that Bryce here isn’t allowed to support who he believes in, am I getting that right?”

Why did fans think Hall was endorsing Brock Pierce?

Fans initially became suspicious when Hall posed for a selfie outside Pierce’s presidential campaign van.

Soon after, entrepreneur Mahbod Moghadam leaked a conversation he has with Hall about Pierce where, after discussing Hall’s upcoming interview with the candidate for his podcast, he told Moghadam that Pierce “was an interesting guy” who “had my vote.”

Brock Pierce later shared the exchange on his Instagram story.

Many fans resulted with outrage at this apparent endorsement, with many of them accusing Hall of using his platform irresponsibly. One fan said: “Must be nice to have the privilege of not caring who to endorse in this election and influencing your followers to vote for a third party.”

Several other fans accused him of encouraging fans to “waste” their vote, with one Twitter user asking: “Does he even realize what this does?! I’m so disappointed.”

While Hall seems to have poured cold water over a possible Brock Pierce endorsement, it is clear that he has some way to go before he regains fans’ trust.
