Popular TikTokker and former Dance Moms star Mackenzie “Kenzie” Ziegler has hit out at Isaak Presley and Sebastian Topete after they posted a “Smash or Pass” video to YouTube rating popular female influencers. 

Isaak and Sebastian, who are both members of the Clubhouse, an influencer household founded by Daisy Keech and Abby Rao, posted a video to the official Clubhouse YouTube channel where they rated creators including Alex French, Addison Rae, and Kenzie herself, as a “Smash” or “Pass.”

Isaak maintained throughout that the game was “clickbait,” and that by “smash” they really meant “we think they’re cute and we’d take them on a date.” Isaak said “please don’t take anything we said too seriously,” but that didn’t stop commenters from airing out their grievances.

Isaak was noticeably uncomfortable when asked to rate Kenzie, his ex-girlfriend, and gave her a “pass.” Kenzie commented “jeez” and said, “it’s just disrespectful” under a clip from the video that was posted to Instagram.

She then tweeted: “Boys are so disrespectful… I just can’t believe how guys talk about girls on the internet.”

On the video itself, one user commented: “This challenge was way too soon. Like Isaak and Kenzie just broke up. I feel so bad for Kenzie”

Another user said: “This is so disrespectful talking about girls like this like we’re some objects to judge. I expected more from Isaak, this isn’t youtube content, it’s disgusting”

Followers of the Clubhouse BH Instagram account weren’t happy either. User itz._ur.gurl_mirian said: “Wow Isaak you nearly broke up with Kenzie and know you’re playing Smash or Pass, wow.”

It appears that Kenzie wasn’t the only high-profile creator to be bristled by the video. Eagle-eyed fans have also spotted that Jaden Hossler seemed to have unfollowed Sebastian and Isaak since the video was posted, and Bryce Hall has unfollowed Sebastian.


PewDiePie hits out at company over KSI Meme Review copyright claim

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
