YouTuber and popular podcast host Joe Rogan was dumbfounded by Logan Paul’s infamous slap when chatting with Eddie Bravo, Bryan Callen and Brendan Schaub.

From Vine, to YouTube, to professional boxing, Logan Paul is a man of many talents, including, it turns out, slapping.

Slap contests have been popularized in Russia. Essentially, two people will slap each other until one backs down. Indeed, heading to one these previously ‘underground’ contests was all part of Logan’s plan. That is, until he dealt one devastating blow.

It was this devastating blow that was the hot topic of conversation with Rogan and his fellow stand-up comedians during his March 14 episode of Fight Companion.

After mulling over Paul’s spar with UFC superstar, Paulo Costa, the gang moved onto the potential bout between Logan and Bellator Middleweight, Dillon Danis.

However, before diving into the specifics of how the pair would weigh-up, Rogan referenced Paul’s notorious slap. “Did you see Logan slap that guy unconscious?” the podcast host asked.

After pulling up the snippet of Logan’s video, Rogan proceeded: “Look at this. Look how preposterous this is… Boom!” the UFC commentator yelled.

“Yeah, don’t do that at home kids… That’s a big [knockout],” Rogan stated, before going on to claim that the victim of Paul’s hard hit suffered some form of brain damage.

The slap in-question is from Paul’s June 8 (2019) video, which garnered over 16 million views. After taking the full force of Logan’s slap straight to the face, the man fell straight to the ground and appeared unconscious.

After coming around, the victim was dazed and appeared to suffer from some kind of short-term memory loss, as he questioned whether or not he’d been slapped.

Logan has since resorted to posting a more reserved style of content, with his fast-paced vlogs picking up traction on YouTube.

While Rogan and co. were left amazed by Paul’s power, Danis has labeled the YouTuber “embarrassing” as he’s vowed to beat him in a boxing match.

Another day, another controversy for one of the infamous Paul brothers. This time, Jake Paul has found himself under fire for throwing his second party in two days in what used to be the Team 10 mansion.

Since quitting YouTube in September, Paul has had a fairly quiet few weeks (for him, anyway). But recently, he has once again faced fan’s fury for ignoring local restrictions not once, but twice.

As highlighted by Twitter reporter DefNoodles, Jake Paul has thrown multiple bashes in the past few days, despite restrictions in the area making it very clear that this currently isn’t allowed.

One post on the Instagram story of model Charly Jordan shows Paul bringing in a birthday cake for fellow YouTube star Brandon Amato as a crowd closely congregates in his usually-sprawling living room.

Meanwhile, another Instagram story by TikToker Jon Marianek – which is alleged to be from the same party- shows further crowding with no masks or social distancing. It also reveals that Sway House star Bryce Hall – who has recently come under fire for his own partying ways – also attended the bash.

Unsurprisingly, fans on Twitter were less than enthusiastic about Paul’s actions. One enraged fan tagged the Mayor of LA’s Twitter account, asking him, “What action are you taking to combat this?”.

Other fans called Paul “disgusting” for throwing the parties, with one user commenting that “these kids would do anything for clout”.

While there were a couple of fans who attempted to defend Paul – like the fan who asked, “What makes you think that C*vid is in the house?” – the reception to this news was overwhelmingly negative, with one user chiming in that they “hope Karma comes back to hit you where it hurts”.

Paul previously made headlines in July for throwing a rules-defying house party.

This isn’t the first time Paul has come under fire for throwing parties during the current health crisis: back in July, he received backlash from major news outlets and even YouTubers like Tyler Oakley for throwing a huge bash in his California home, with his neighbors calling him “irresponsible and selfish”.

He has also experienced legal trouble as of late, with the FBI raiding his house for weapons in August. It is unclear how these latest revelations will impact his current legal issues.

Paul is yet to comment publicly on this issue.
