Former OfflineTV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan has been removed from the content creation group following allegations of sexual misconduct.

OfflineTV broke the news on the evening of June 27, following allegations made by House Manager Yvonne ‘Yvonnie’ Ng.

“We strive to be a place where everyone can feel comfortable and safe,” they tweeted. “Fed has been removed from Offline TV. He will also no longer be living with us. We wholeheartedly support Yvonne, her statement, and anyone else who has the courage to share their story.”

In her Twitlonger statement, Yvonnie said that Fed was the first friend she felt like she made in the group, and they would hang out together often in her bedroom since she had a TV.

She then claimed that one night, after coming home drunk, he got into bed with her and proceeded to make advances, before putting his hand underneath her shirt and touched her side next to her chest.

“10 minutes later he ‘woke up’ and said “whoa how’d I get here.” I asked, “do you remember anything?” and he said no and left my room,” she claimed.

The 24-year-old allegedly did the same thing again a “few weeks later,” and again acted like he couldn’t remember his actions when questioned.

The House Manager then went on to claim that Fedmyster had also acted similarly with fellow member Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki. “When she was going through her hard breakup with Albert, Fed also walked into her room while she was drunk. She was laying down and he asked if she wanted a massage,” she wrote.

“She said sure, and he started off massaging her leg, and then up her thighs. A week or so later, he was drunk and laid down next to her, and told her he liked her. She then felt uncomfortable with everything, and he asked her to not tell anyone what happened.”

LilyPichu also released her own Twitlonger statement shortly after OfflineTV revealed they’d parted ways with the streamer. She claimed that after she’d been cheated on by Albert ‘Sleightlymusical’ Chang, Fed came into her room asking if she wanted a massage.

“I agreed. He massaged my legs, from my feet to my upper thighs. He came to my room again, drunk, and laid on my bed. He said he liked me. He started to visit me a lot,” she wrote. “I was confused because I always saw Fed as a good friend, and it hadn’t even been two weeks since Albert cheated on me.”

Update: LilyPichu later deleted her Tweet, but the Twitlonger remains available.

Fedmyster has since released a statement of his own on Twitter, responding to the allegations in a series of tweets. “Earlier this week, some of my friends sat me down and expressed that I had on several occasions made them feel uncomfortable or uneasy,” he wrote.

“This pained me as it was not and has never been my intention to hurt those closest to me. I fully understand the importance of having their voices heard, and I believe I should take a step back, give them space and listen to their story,” he continued.

“I’ve made it a point this year to be better, and as I often mention I’m trying to take more responsibility in my life. I owe it to both my friends and everyone who supports me to own up to my actions, and that starts by listening to those I’ve hurt.”

Logan Paul reacts to Jake calling him a “fake fighter” before Floyd Mayweather bout

YouTube star Logan Paul is set to throw down with undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather this February — but little brother Jake Paul isn’t a fan of their upcoming bout, even calling his sibling a “fake fighter.”

The Paul brothers have unexpectedly shifted from their careers as top-tier YouTubers into white-collar boxers. Ever since August 2018, the two have dedicated their time to training and scoring high-profile matches; and Logan may have taken the cream of the crop.

On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Logan would be fighting 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in a “Super Exhibition” match in February 2021. This news seemed to overshadow Jake’s 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson a week prior, which may have influenced his thoughts on his older brother’s upcoming match.

“My brother is f**ked,” Jake taunted in an interview with TMZ. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1, I’m 3-0.”

A week later, Logan has finally responded to his little bro’s scathing words — and it’s safe to say that he’s a little confused as to where the venom is coming from, although he’s completely unfazed by the insults.

“I’m like, little brothers up to some s**t, like he wants to get some attention for a sec, go for it,” he said of the matter. “But I fully support Jake — whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. ‘You’re a fake boxer.’ Okay. Let’s box, because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners.”

“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” he continued. “In this fight, everyone’s sayin’ a lot of things, and for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather! So I’ve literally become immune to every — I’ve heard it all.”

(Topic begins at 47:58)

Jake isn’t the only one unsure of his brother’s chances; even Mike Tyson claimed that Floyd would “beat [Logan’s] f***kin’ ass” when it comes time for their match.

While the odds are certainly against Paul, there’s still a chance that he might surprise his critics and go the distance against his formidable opponent.
