YouTube comedy duo H3H3 has officially won a lawsuit filed against them by Triller, after the content creators joked about comedian Kevin Hart being advertised as using the Triller app.

Jake Paul’s boxing success has done a lot more than put the ‘Problem Child’ on the map for combat sports fans; the YouTuber’s April 2021 bout against Ben Askren also resulted in an expensive lawsuit against a slew of YouTube channels.

Triller notoriously filed a lawsuit against a slew of channels for illegally streaming the match. Although they ended up dropping this suit, they did refile against one channel in particular for using footage from the fight — H3H3.

This single suit turned into a slew of filings against the YouTube duo by both Triller and Triller’s CEO, Ryan Kavanaugh, one of which has been successfully overturned in favor of H3H3 months after the fact.

The lawsuit appears to have been filed in regards to comments Klein made regarding Kevin Hart using the Triller app. According to Klein, the app had purportedly falsely advertised Hart used the app, as told during an episode of the H3 Podcast.

Triller alleged that Klein’s comments had interfered in its business and accused Klein of lying about their app advertising Hart.

“The court finds the statements by Klein are parody, that Triller didn’t prove Kevin Hart was on the app, & that Triller didn’t prove their s**t wasn’t flipped.”

Klein excitedly mentioned H3H3 now only has a single lawsuit left to battle, revealing the latest suit from Triller has been dismissed for “being improper.”

This seems to mean the remaining lawsuits involve the footage used from the Jake Paul vs Ben Askren fight from 2021 and a defamation lawsuit from Kavanaugh.
