H3H3 blasts “scumbag” Jaystation for allegedly faking girlfriend’s death

YouTuber “Jaystation” has come under fire for allegedly faking the death of his own girlfriend — something that Ethan Klein, member of YouTube comedy duo H3H3, isn’t too fond of.

Jaystation, known across the online entertainment space for his divisive videos (which include him holding ‘seances’ with deceased celebrities), has once again sparked controversy for another contentious upload.

The YouTuber, who currently boasts over 5.5 million subscribers, claimed that his girlfriend Alexia had been killed by a drunk driver, as told in his emotional January 22 video titled, “My Girlfriend Alexia has died… *Rest in Paradise*.”

However, her purported death was hotly contested, as another video had been posted to his second channel that features a very much alive Alexia.

Due to this fact and his storied past, many criticized Jaystation for appearing to falsify his partner’s death for views. One of his biggest critics has been Ethan Klein, who went on a brutal rant during an episode of his H3H3 podcast with wife Hila Klein.

While the outrage surrounding Jaystation is no secret, Klein was firm on his stance on the subject, labeling the YouTuber as “scum” and entertaining the idea that the entire storyline had been fabricated to gain subscribers.

“He’s just driving subs!” Ethan noticed as Jaystation said he’d been “so close” to reaching one million subscribers on his secondary channel. “What a f**king scumbag! He’s barely talking about her. …This guy would murder his own grandma if it got him more subscribers.”

The duo also speculated that Jaystation would bring Alexia “back from the dead” after a short break, further adding to his already bursting portfolio of purported ‘seances’ and talks with late celebrities — or pinning her death on their possible breakup.

“He’s the trashiest person, not [just] on YouTube, but possibly alive today,” Klein said of the YouTuber.

With Jaystation even uploading a video visiting his girlfriend’s memorial site, it comes as little surprise that critics are either accusing him of monetizing her passing or faking a serious matter for views, adding yet another chapter to his list of questionable uploads.

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.”
