Following the shocking results of KSI vs Logan Paul 2 on November 9, Jake Paul has claimed his brother’s loss was “rigged” and explained how it’s “bullsh*t” if the decision isn’t overturned. 

KSI faced off against Logan Paul in Los Angeles, CA on November 9, as the two YouTube stars met in the boxing ring for a rematch, after their first bout in 2018 ended in a tie. 

However just like the first match, the results were shocking when Logan lost after being deducted two-points in a nail-biter finish. Now, his younger brother has come to his defense.

After the event wrapped up and KSI was declared the winner by a split decision, Jake Paul spoke to the press. “I think the committee should contest it,” he argued. “And if they don’t flip that decision, then it’s bullsh*t!”

The YouTuber went a step further, and shockingly claimed the whole sport of boxing is fake. “I’ve been in this sport for a year now. I shouldn’t be saying this. But all this f*cking sh*t is rigged!”

The younger Paul brother then explained why he felt these events are not fair. “You see people wining and dining each other. You see people at Staples Center. Who was at the Staples Center last night with KSI?” he asked.

While it’s not entirely clear who he’s talking about due to noise in the background, the YouTuber seemed to be suggesting that KSI spent time with someone involved in the event.

While his younger brother doesn’t seem too happy with the results, Logan Paul has so far been gracious about his loss, and has not made any claims of the results being unfair. When the match ended, KSI and the YouTuber shook hands, and exchanged compliments, burying their feud.

Logan even posted on his Twitter on November 10 to praise KSI, and congratulated him on his victory. “Two random kids who made stupid videos turned into professional boxers, sold out the Staples Center. Congrats to the champ, KSI. I can’t wait to see what you do next!” he said.

While it remains to be seen if the YouTube star will change his mind on the results after having time to analyze the fight, for the time being he seems to be keeping his head high.

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that KSI and Logan Paul got millions of people to tune in, and most of the reactions of the fight have been positive. So both came out as winners in the end.

Streamer goes viral for calling out “disrespectful” Among Us players

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Julien ‘julien’ Solomita has gone viral for a clip in which he called out Among Us players who are disrespectful towards others in-game.

In the viral clip, which has been viewed over 350,000 times since being uploaded to Twitter on December 4, Julien blasted people who infect his lobbies with negativity or make others feel “unsafe.”

“When I make these lobbies, when I go around and hit up some of my friends, and often times some of my friends’ friends to play Among Us with me, I have one thing in mind: that everyone I’m inviting gets to have fun,” the streamer began his rant.

“Gets to feel welcome. Gets to feel safe. Gets the exact opportunity as everyone else to be listened to. And gets to go home at the end of the night and say that had a good night of gaming,” he continued.

Among Us has become one of the most popular online games.

According to Julien, this mantra should be enforced for new people. “I’ve met more people in the streaming world playing Among Us than I’ve ever met, by far, than any other game,” he explained. “So, when new people are in my lobbies, I try to go extra to out of my way to make those people feel like they’re welcome and they get to have fun.”

Communication can be key in Among Us, so it makes sense that anyone who plays would want to be able to speak freely and not be spoken over. As such, when players aren’t able to get a word in, the experience can be ruined.

This is why the streamer has “zero tolerance” for the “normalization” of disrespecting people in video games.

“Among Us is a game and it’s for fun. It’s not so boys can talk over women. It’s not to make new people in the group feel small or unwelcome. It’s not to win in every game at all costs,” he continued to rant. “It’s a game and it’s for everybody to enjoy.”

He went on to reach out to players who may have been disrespected in online games and hoped that they never experienced that again. “I don’t want anyone here to get the idea that it’s even close to normal for that to be how you feel when you play a video game. That’s not normal. It’s f**king weird, it’s wrong.”

A lot of people have taken Solomita’s message to heart and voiced their agreement in the replies. Hopefully, his words have a lasting effect on players feeling a bit out of touch in online games such as Among Us.
