While the 34-year-old normally stays out of any drama on the platform, Chloe responded to hate comments and said “It’s time for me to address it”, describing the accusations against her as “malicious.”

The hater in question, who was not named or linked to, allegedly posted 62 different slides to their Instagram story accusing Chloe of being a “scammer”, of clickbait and being “fake news”.

Chloe said that she normally ignores these, but that this time the person had been selling their words as an exposé, and “trying to make a profit out of it.” She said “I don’t condone this, and I won’t be a pushover”

One of the repeated accusations against Chloe was that she was encouraging body dysmorphia and an unhealthy lifestyle. The YouTuber took her response one step further by enlisting the help of Dr. Ben Buchanan, a Clinical Psychologist specialist in body dysmorphic disorder in Melbourne who said that Chloe herself was being body-shamed. He praised Chloe for the “kind and compassionate community” she had created.

Dietician Abbey Sharp was also brought in by Chloe to dispel the accusations about her approach to eating. Abbey said, “I really applaud you for promoting a generally balanced approach to food.”

Within hours of posting, Chloe’s fans leaped to her defense in the comment section, with one fan writing “She’s the CUTEST she doesn’t deserve any hate and just the fact that she’s not leaking this person’s name is just so awesome and my respect for her went ??”

Chloe summarised. “I’m a human being and not someone you can just shit on just because you want to grow your following

“Trust me there’s a lot more going behind the scenes… I guess it comes with the number of subscribers that I get and I can handle it.”

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
