Ethan Klein mocks Trisha Paytas with ridiculous “apology” video

YouTube star Trisha Paytas sparked outrage across the net after coming out as a transgender man in early October – but another internet celeb is taking the backlash to another level.

H3H3’s Ethan Klein mocked Paytas’ announcement video during an episode of the “H3 Podcast” in wake of the outrage, calling her “crazy” and “f***ing insane.”

Paytas was obviously displeased with his comments on the subject, hitting back at the YouTuber by posting a slew of sensitive photos to Twitter shortly thereafter – and even a full-length video discussing the topic, claiming that Klein was “worse than Donald Trump.”

With this drama in mind, Klein set out to finally “settle” their beef – but his “apology” was anything but genuine.

Rather than speaking from the heart, Klein continued his mockery of the divisive internet star, dressing up in a blonde wig and makeup and even sitting on his kitchen floor in a ridiculous imitation of Paytas’ signature videos.

“I wanted to basically apologize to Trisha Paytas, who is such a sweet, genuine person,” Klein claimed, giving his voice a note of vocal fry to match Paytas’ own voice. “…I’m sorry for saying that you’re not trans, even though you have F cup jugs that are always on display.”

Ethan’s wife, Hila Klein, then wondered if Paytas would ever make an appearance on their podcast as a means of ending their feud – although it doesn’t look like this meeting will ever happen, with Trisha asking for “$18 million dollars” when prompted about the possibility on Twitter.

Although Paytas has yet to respond to Klein’s fake “apology” video, the star claimed that she does have “regrets” about her announcement, admitting that she wasn’t pleased with how she handled the video in an interview with TMZ.

“I regret the way I explained myself,” Paytas revealed. “I don’t regret talking about it. …I’m not a spokesperson for the trasngender community, you know what I mean? I just know I’ve always been trasngender, so I just talked about it.”

With Paytas and Klein having a history of beef, his “apology” marks the latest jab at the YouTuber, with fans and critics alike awaiting her reply to the drama.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
