British YouTube star KSI has made no secret of his dislike fellow content creator Jake Paul, a beef that exploded after KSI’s win over Logan Paul in 2019 — but there’s more to his hatred of the youngest Paul brother than just his content.

KSI opened up about his feud with the Team 10 founder in a May 13 episode of KEEMSTAR and FaZe Banks’ ‘Mom’s Basement’ podcast, where he put Jake Paul at the top of his list of most-hated YouTubers.

When asked to explain why he had such a vitriolic distaste for Paul, KSI cited his general attitude and even accused the star of racism, claiming he’d used racial slurs on multiple occasions.

Jake Paul and KSI faced off after Paul’s win over AnEsonGib in January, further solidifying a potential fight between the two stars.

“Just his whole demeanor, how he is,” KSI answered. “He’s racist. Like, mad times he says the n-word. Bro, he’s just an a**hole. Even his video about him just beating up that dude — who you could tell doesn’t know how to box, has no idea how to box — and Jake’s just f**king him up.”

“As a boxer, as a professional boxer, you should never do something like that, man,” he continued. “You don’t need to prove that you’re sick, if that makes sense, to someone who doesn’t know how to box.”

While Jake Paul has yet to respond to KSI’s accusations, these claims add further fuel to the fire of their already electrifying feud, which nearly got physical on the night of Paul’s victory over AnEsonGib in January.

With the two almost going head-to-head in the ring, fans were quick to ask for a fight between the YouTubers as a way to officially end the beef between KSI and the Paul brothers, a possibility that Jake later confirmed in an Instagram story that laid out their fight for New York’s Madison Square garden.

While Jake Paul revealed that his fight with KSI is set to take place in New York’s Madison Square Garden, KSI reiterated that the ball is ultimately in his court.

However, KSI was quick to note that the ball is in his court — although he also mentioned that their fight “needs” to happen, as stated in the Mom’s Basement podcast episode.

As the flames of their feud grow ever higher, fans can only watch and wait for further details on their upcoming boxing match that will put an end to their years-long conflict.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.
