American YouTuber Jake Paul has copyright-striked AnEsonGib’s video promoting their upcoming fight – allegedly because of an insult the video contained about him. 

December 20, 2019 saw official confirmation that fans would finally get to see Jake Paul fight AnEsonGib. The fight was confirmed for January 30 meaning it is only a few weeks away. 

However, the bad blood between the two men appears to be worsening if the latest developments are anything to go by. The details for the press conference were revealed on January 3, but fans may be treated to a back-and-forth before then. 

YouTubeThe message viewers are met with when clicking the video.

On January 4, Harry ‘Wroetoshaw’ Lewis, a British YouTuber and friend of Gib’s, tweeted: “Jake Paul copyright-striked Gib’s video because he made fun of his hairline, you can’t make this up”. 

Attached was a video of him following a link to a recent YouTube video, only to be told the video is no longer available. He followed his tweet up by tagging Jake Paul and referring to the event as a loss for the American. 

The strike from Jake Paul allegedly came as a result of Gib mocking his hairline. While it’s not possible to view the video anymore, both Paul sibling’s hairstyles have been targeted for jokes in the past. 

Paul subsequently responded to Wroetoshaw’s tweet, telling Gib that his “boyfriend” is upset over the copyright strike. He concluded his reply by saying: “F**K OUTTA HERE STEALING MY CONTENT.”

Social media users’ responses appeared to relate to which YouTube star they will be supporting in the pair’s January bout. 

Fans of Paul echoed his message that Gib should not be using the American’s content, while those supporting Gib argued Paul had done it just to spite his opponent. 

Regardless, it should make the pair’s upcoming press conference all the more interesting.


Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
