Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul threw some shade at ex-girlfriend and model Erika Costell on his Instagram story, and Erika shot back in kind – just ahead of his birthday on January 17.

Paul posted a picture to his Instagram story with a speech bubble above his head, which read, “I mean, yeah, she was hot, but like, idk if I needed her as much as I thought I did.”

Costell appeared to hit back at the picture with a cryptic Tweet on January 16, where she posted a picture of the definition of the word ‘insanity.’

“Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results,” the picture read.

Jake Paul threw some not-so-subtle shade toward his ex-girlfriend, Erika Costell, in an Instagram story just ahead of his birthday on January 17.

This latest exchange follows a series of subtweets between the ex-couple earlier in January, after Erika Costell unfollowed the “mini Erika” and “mini Jake Paul” (otherwise known as Tydus Talbott) on Twitter upon watching Jake Paul’s “breakup” video featuring the two tots.

Paul hit back at Costell’s social media moves with a scathing Tweet, saying, “It’s sad that unfollowing someone is actually a meaningful currency for you… check yourself.”

Paul appeared to follow up this statement with another Tweet, which read, “100% confirmed to be the person who I so hoped & prayed you wouldn’t be.”

While Erika has been decidedly silent on their breakup (answering with a simple “Oh, hell no” when asked if she was currently seeing anyone), Paul has spoken out on the issue in his ‘Jake Paul Uncut’ documentary series – as well as calling Erika up for a failed New Year’s Eve kiss.


PewDiePie hits out at company over KSI Meme Review copyright claim

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
