KSI admits criticism from fans is “too much” for him
KSI has claimed that criticism from his fans is “getting too much” for him following his YouTube return after a brief hiatus.
In his own words, for years he’s been nonstop grinding, and following his recent fight with Tommy Fury, where he was subsequently handed his first loss, he took a step away from YouTube.
Finally, on December 1, KSI returned to YouTube with a new upload, where he finally broke his silence on the loss and divulged how he just “didn’t feel like making a video.”
KSI reveals criticism from his Reddit is “a bit too much”
In a recent December 8 SideCast episode, KSI was asked by fellow Sidemen members what he’ll be uploading on YouTube next. The Prime co-founder revealed that he might do a video reacting to his Reddit. However, he explained that right now it’s in “chaos” and “very critical” of him.
“F**k me, man, the Reddit is chaos right now,” said KSI. “I think it’s full of just a lot of my haters. Full of a lot of like Jake Paul fans.” He added: “There’s also just, I don’t know, like people that are old fans that are now saying I’ve changed and stuff like that. I don’t know, it’s very critical of me.”
While acknowledging that for a while his Reddit making fun of him was a running joke and part of what made his videos, the YouTube star revealed that it no longer feels like a joke.
“It’s getting to the point where it’s a bit too much,” he confessed. “Now it’s not a joke anymore. Now it’s like okay, this is kind of personal.”
Although with that said, KSI admitted that he just needs to “face the music” — realizing that once he’s reacted to it the “chaos” will calm down.
