Popular YouTuber Ethan Klein of comedy duo ‘H3H3’ is joining the ranks of YouTubers calling out Jake Paul and Ricegum for promoting an alleged scam site in their recent videos – as well as potentially advertising a gambling service to their young audiences.

Jake Paul uploaded a video on December 30 advertising the website ‘MysteryBrand.net,’ a service that allows users to pay a set amount of money to open a box of their choice with the chance of winning luxury items and name-brand clothing – or nothing at all.

Paul’s video has since garnered widespread criticism from viewers, with one fan claiming that she got scammed out of a “large amount of money” in a comment.

Ethan Klein is the latest to take issue with Paul’s video, which he analyzed in his own video on January 2. Klein noticed how excited and off-the-wall Paul seemed while promoting the website, and expressed concern that he was encouraging gambling in his relatively young viewer base.

“I don’t think I need to look much deeper into this to know it’s a very strange, overseas scam,” Klein stated. “…when you introduce what is quite literally gambling to an eight to 12 year old… and this is supposed to be a family friendly site. This is bananas.”

Paul went on to react to Klein’s video on Twitter, writing, “Love this video,” in response to his Tweet.

Klein answered Paul’s post with an incredulous reply. “You loved being called out for selling a gambling scam to underage kids?” Klein responded. “K.”

Klein isn’t the only YouTuber to have called out Paul for the scheme, either; Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR likewise took issue with the website, calling out Paul in a Tweet on December 30.

Jake Paul has since responded to Klein’s reply, confirming his stance by writing, “Yes, love it!”

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
