Popular IRL streamer ICE_POSEIDON has officially kicked fellow streamer Sam Pepper from his stream team, due to an alleged scandal between Pepper and POSEIDON’s girlfriend.

POSEIDON revealed that he would be removing Pepper from both the CX Network and his Reddit page in a Tweet on January 29, claiming that the streamer had crossed a major line.

“Due to reasons I choose to not disclose, Sam Pepper is banned on my Reddit and removed from the network,” POSEIDON wrote. “He crossed a line that a friend should NEVER cross, and enough is enough.”

Following this Tweet, Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem called both POSEIDON and Pepper to get their side of the story – revealing a shocking development. 

According to KEEMSTAR, Pepper had allegedly been in private talks with POSEIDON’s girlfriend, prompting POSEIDON to kick him from the team.

That’s not all, KEEMSTAR also alleged that POSEIDON would be removing a slew of streamers from his CX Network following Pepper’s ban, and would be replacing the personalities with new streamers (the identities of which are as yet unknown).

This isn’t the first scandal Sam Pepper has been involved in, either. The former YouTuber-turned-streamer faced sexual assault allegations in 2014, after six women came forward with claims that they had been touched inappropriately and harassed by Pepper.

Three additional women likewise claimed that Pepper had groped them at a YouTube event in London, choosing to keep their identity a secret for fear of further harassment.

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.”
