French YouTuber IbraTV has called out KSI for a boxing match after his draw with Logan Paul, after saying he has “started to hate KSI”.

Ibra, who has over 3 million subscribers, is one of the most popular French YouTubers, is best known for his prank, ‘social experiments’ and ‘hidden camera’ videos, but is also a keen fighter.

More recently, he began to organize MMA fights and he even fought against a French professional Muay Thai champion.

Next, he is setting his sights on KSI, who is now two fights deep into his boxing career. Ibra claims to be angered by KSI’s disrespectful comments towards Logan Paul’s family and girlfriend, made in the UK press conference.

Explaining his issue with KSI, he says he initially wanted to challenge Logan Paul, but that he had “started to hate KSI”.

“I just have a message to pass, I wanted to fight against Logan Paul, but after seeing his video, I started to hate KSI, he is all talk. Winner when it comes to talking, but in real life, you’re a loser.”

Later, he also offered his help to Logan Paul to beat KSI in their first fight: 

“If you want, I’m coming with you to beat this guy. Send me a message on Instagram and I’ll come with no problem.”

After the fight ended, with the judges ruling it a majority draw and a rematch being set for early 2019, Ibra doubled down on his beef with KSI, in a video posted to Twitter.

“France represented by IbraTV against England represented by KSI, imagine a little fight. But for that, you have to retweet en masse, even the big YouTubers, like Squeezie, who do not like me. 

If ever I have the opportunity to represent France, I will give everything for England to be at our feet. In order to show the world that we are fighters and that we are not only strong in football. I hope the fight will take place.”

KSI hasn’t yet acknowledge Ibra’s offer for a bout, and with the rematch vs Logan Paul expected to take place in February, he will need to prepare for that first.

However, there is no doubt that more YouTube boxing matches will take place in the future, given the track record now of two successful events, first KSI vs Joe Well, and then the Paul brothers vs KSI and his younger brother, Deji.

Noah Beck & Griffin Johnson under fire for “cancel culture” comments

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Griffin Johnson are taking heat from critics due to their divisive comments on “cancel culture,” as told during an episode of Johnson’s “Sway Way” podcast.

Also known as “call-out culture,” the term “cancel culture” has become a popular phrase in the past few years as social media has flourished, allowing users to highlight abuse, bad behavior, or other negative actions from people online.

When these bad behaviors are brought to light, the person responsible is usually called out, boycotted and ostracized, causing them to be publicly shamed and often ousted from their professional and social circles due to the resulting backlash.

“Cancel culture” itself is a divisive term, with many believing that it outright doesn’t exist, as those being “canceled” deserve to be called out for their actions and that those who are “canceled” are never truly brought to justice from the outrage.

Still, others feel that “cancel culture” is going too far and is resulting in a toxic online environment — but either way, people are no longer willing to abide bad behavior from anyone, and social media has given users a platform to speak up against things they consider to be unjust.

TikTokers and Sway House members Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck recently spoke out on the social phenomenon during an episode of the Sway Way podcast — and their thoughts on the subject have sparked quite a bit of backlash against them.

“People are getting canceled for things that were totally acceptable,” Beck said. “I don’t want to say that people have gotten really sensitive, but at the same time, they have, and it’s like… there were some things that were acceptable back then that people could say, now it comes back on them five, 10 years later.”

“I mean, I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep,” Beck continued, referencing his own controversial history on social media. “I can see why people think it’s a big deal now, but it’s like… I never thought I would have this platform. I never thought I would have this stage. I was growing up just playing soccer. I liked a few tweets, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time.”

Needless to say, both Beck and Johnson have received a substantial amount of criticism from listeners, with one user writing: “He really said that he never thought he would have gotten famous… so if you’re not famous, you can be homophobic and it’s not a big deal?”

Both boys have yet to speak out on the outrage, which only continues to grow in wake of their already storied history of sparking division among TikTok viewers.
