Fans outraged after Boogie2988 “begs” for money following $100k Tesla purchase

Controversial YouTuber and Twitch streamer Steven ‘Boogie2988’ Williams is known both for his popular videos as well as the multiple scandals surrounding his career as a content creator – one of which is stirring outrage amongst his fanbase, following his purchase of a $100,000 Tesla Model S.

Boogie2988 went live in a broadcast in early July, where he explained the story behind his purchase of the Tesla, which he’d worriedly Tweeted about on June 28 after realizing he could “barely afford” the car.

However, Boogie decided to use the Tesla as a confidence-builder, aiming to create better content to earn more revenue – but some fans weren’t happy with his Tweet on the subject.

Some fans accused Boogie of “begging” for cash from his viewerbase, which he sarcastically confirmed, going on to deny having “begged” in light of his massive debt.

“The answer is yes,” he jokingly said of the scandal. “Give me some money. Also, no. I just realized when I got home, the car was fucking expensive.”

Despite his explanation, critics continue to lash out at the YouTuber, with some angry commenters even doing the math to speculate what Boogie can and cannot afford.

“…he’s making at least $88k per year from Youtube alone,” one user wrote. “Sponsors appear to be the lion’s share, plus Twitch revenue, donos, and Patreon… I would guess, conservatively, $250k-300k per year. ..Guy can easily afford this car.”

Reddit users have compiled long lists of Boogie’s past statements and offenses, which one commenter whipped out during a heated argument over his alleged “begging” for money.

“…’Don’t be jealous. You too can buy a new car if you can afford it,’” another quoted. “#HotTake. Yet more classic Boogie twisting the narrative to make it seem like critics are jealous, rather than highlighting his flip flopping contradictions.”

This would be far from the first time Boogie has faced mass criticism, with an older clip from his stream going viral in late June that showed the streamer making a racist comment toward a donator.

In fact, the criticism against Boogie is so great that the YouTuber has even admitted to having suicidal thoughts due to the hate, as told in a series of Tweets on June 13.

Despite the backlash, Boogie is determined to ignore the hate and move forward, while critics are adding his latest stream to a long list of his previous offenses.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
