YouTube duo Ethan and Hila ‘H3H3’ Klein discussed YouTube’s recent slew of site-wide issues during their H3 Podcast – one of which was the service’s copyright system.

Ethan referenced a video of theirs that had been striked for copyright infringement, which had been disputed due to alleged unauthorized use of the song Sex on Fire by band Kings of Leon.

However, Ethan claimed that the song hadn’t been used in the video at all, and noted the disparity of options he was given in order to dispute the strike.

“There’s not even an option for, ‘whatever you claimed isn’t even in my video,’” he stated.

He then alleged that there are ‘huge media companies’ that go on large copyright strike sprees due to YouTube’s lack of accountability for false claims.

“It’s so broad,” Ethan explained. “It says, ‘in good faith.’”

He then explained that the claimant had denied his dispute, after which Ethan made yet another effort to assuage the situation. He claimed that, after this step, the claimant has the legal option to strike and remove his video from the platform.

“The frequency of claiming videos and erroneous and shameless claims has skyrocketed,” he said. “I think they have tools… you cannot go watch videos – they have some kind of automated tools that match it. They don’t even put in the effort to review it.”

YouTube’s issues have been called out by a slew of creators as of late, including massively popular YouTubers Markiplier and KEEMSTAR, who feel that Google Plus’s removal from the site may be to blame for its global blackout on October 16.

Neekolul and 100T’s JhbTeam sit down for world’s most awkward interview

TikTok star and 100 Thieves member ‘Neekolul’ sat down for an interview with the org’s intern, ‘JhbTeam,’ resulting in one of the most hilariously awkward pieces of internet content we’ve seen yet.

Neekolul skyrocketed to fame earlier this year after her “Okay Boomer” TikTok took off across social media, becoming a viral sensation almost overnight.

Since then, Neekolul — real name Nicole — has solidified herself among the elite of the net’s content creators, and has signed with none other than esports giant 100 Thieves in yet another huge move.

The organization has since started a new interview series with its intern, JhbTeam, whose unique style resulted in a downright hilarious conversation between himself and Neekolul for its pilot episode.

The first video in the series, titled “TBH with JHB,” tasked Neekolul with answering a series of awkward questions, such as: “How does it feel to have this much of a following on a platform?”

Neekolul’s forthcoming answer was something that no one expected: “It’s cool. You know, you can say almost anything and someone’s gonna like your tweet. You could say like, ‘I like to eat s**t,’ and people are like, ‘Yeah!’”

However, Neeko didn’t have an answer for “Why do you have a boyfriend?” leaving Jhb giving her an humorously intense staredown as she scrambled to address the random question.

That being said, Neeko was totally down to turn the tables and ask Jhb a few questions, one of which included: “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?”

It seems that Jhb’s response of, “Flying, so I could come see you,” didn’t go over so well, with the star giving an understandable “WTF” look at his reply — which senior producer ‘rufhaus’s’ editing skills made into a truly funny moment.

Amid the ensuing hijinks with Jhb, Neeko did admit that her rise to internet stardom wasn’t a piece of cake, with many criticizing her for reaching fame so quickly and doubting her abilities (although that was about the only serious moment throughout the entire interview).

While fans probably didn’t learn anything totally new about Neeko in this video (aside from her favorite primary color, which is blue — which isn’t even a primary color), it’s definitely worth a watch for viewers looking to have a laugh as they watch their favorite influencer scramble for answers in the face of a gut-bustingly awkward interview session.

Who can we expect to see on TBH with JHB in the future?

Although Neekolul was just the first guest on 100 Thieves’ new show, Jhb did let fans in on what other guests could be making an appearance in his famously awkward series later on.

“Basically, people that are close in the gaming scene/community and are recognizable to fans,” Jhb revealed. “I want to make sure the guests know who I am in a sense of not making them uncomfortable, and that they know how awkward I am.”

Jhb is 100 Thieves’ intern, who boasts a successful YouTube channel and Twitch stream where he collaborates with other big names in the gaming space.

That’s not all; he even dropped a few potential names, most notably CallMeCarson, Jordan Fisher, Hitchariide and even 100 Thieves founder, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.

“We honestly have no idea who to have on next,” he added. “I definitely want to have Nadeshot on the show, as I see it as one of the most iconic ones that we’ll make, but as of right now, we have no idea. I mainly want to have 100 Thieves creators on, but in the meantime, no idea.”

Who knows who will be featured on the show next? Not even Jhb himself is sure; but that just means that the possibilities are endless.
