Ethan Klein, popular YouTuber behind H3H3, has hit out at TikTok star Noah Beck for promoting a “scam” abs toner product to his 14.9 million followers. 

The growth of TikTok has led to a brand new wave of internet celebrities, many of who have amassed monumental followings on the Beijing-based social media platform.

One of these individuals in Noah Beck who, at the time of writing, sits at just shy of 15 million followers.

With such a following comes the opportunity for sponsorship and brand deals, the likes of which saw Beck promoting an abs toner product. However, this particular promotion left Klein less than impressed.

The product is an abs stimulator, apparently designed to give the user more definition and tone without having to exercise and properly work out.

Klein responded to the promotion in his own TikTok, calling it a clear “scam” and hitting out at Beck for promoting the item to his audience.

“So it’s nice to see this scam made it to TikTok,” Klein said. “This has been around since basically television came out, they’ve been selling this to house wives and lazy people who just want abs and do nothing, but it’s a total scam.”

The remainder of the TikTok continues in the same way, with Klein hitting out at Beck and contradicting his claims about the product, even joking that it’s a “transformer”.

He finishes by reiterating that he believes it to be a “scam,” and suggests that TikTok stars should take more responsibility for the products they promote, especially when their audiences are made up of mostly young people.

Beck has not responded to the criticism. Beck is not the first to promote ‘ab toners’ on social media, with a host of celebrities and professional athletes – including Cristiano Ronaldo – have been sponsored by similar products.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
