KSI bashes Alex Wassabi over his new Nickelodeon series

While YouTube star KSI may be known for his infamous rivalry with Logan Paul, there’s another YouTuber he’s been beefing with, as well – and they just got a brand new show.

YouTuber Alex Wassabi has moved from the online world to television after being cast as a judge for Nickelodeon’s new reality competition show “Top Elf.”

The premise of the show pits seven children against each other to compete in various creative tasks, such as constructing a gingerbread house or even “3-D holiday cards” to become Santa’s “Top Elf,” as the show is so named.

While it might seem like a huge step in the right direction for Wassabi, KSI isn’t too impressed with the move, as shown in his Instagram comment on the matter.

Rather than celebrating Wassabi securing the bag, as it were, KSI replied to celebrity news outlet “The Bread Batch’s” post on the subject with a circus tent emoji – effectively labeling Wassabi as a “clown.”

This wouldn’t be the first time KSI and Wassabi have beefed, though: in fact, Wassabi issued a challenge toward KSI in 2018 when the YouTuber was seeking boxing opponents, which KSI promptly denied with several meme videos on the subject.

That didn’t stop Wassabi from following his boxing dreams, though, who later sparred with YouTuber Fouseytube in 2019 – which unfortunately resulted in a cold knockout for Wassabi.

Despite both KSI and Logan Paul’s subsequent mockery of the situation, Wassabi continues his hustle with his latest show, which is scheduled to premiere on Friday, November 29 at 8 PM EST.

Wassabi isn’t the only star cast as a judge on the show, either: in fact, musician Pete Wentz is also part of the cast, as well as actor Tommy Snider actress Samantha Turret.

It seems that Nickelodeon is bent on tapping into the YouTube market for its reality shows, having also casted vlogger David Dobrik in its “America’s Most Musical Family” competition show in July.

This wouldn’t be Wassabi’s first time starring on a Nickelodeon show, either, having already made an appearance on “Double Dare” in 2018.

With more and more YouTubers making their way to the mainstream media, Wassabi marks the latest internet celeb to take such a major leap – although KSI remains unimpressed by his money moves.

A number of TikTok stars have hit out at paparazzi, asking them to stop “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson after a video of them at the airport was uploaded to YouTube. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a number of creators like Charli and Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae, and Bryce Hall have become stars thanks to their viral videos. 

However, the fame and popularity that social media brings, fans want to know more. They’re desperate for updates on relationships, where their favorite stars are living, and how they’re getting on away from the TikTok videos. 

Many of TikTok’s stars will conduct interviews with paparazzi and other media outlets on a regular basis, but one has come under fire from TikTokjers for apparently “stalking” Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s biggest star, and garners the most attention.

Kevin Wong posted a video of Charli and Chase reuniting at LAX. However, it didn’t go down well with some of the pair’s fellow TikTok stars. 

“You’re taking stalking to a new level. Give them some privacy,” Hype House founder Thomas Petrou said. He also added a simple message, asking Wong to stop as well. 

Additionally, Mia Haywood and Bryant Eslava posted similar messages as Petrou. “Did you really follow them to the airport? Chill with that,” said Mia. “Damn, this is too far Kevin,” added Bryant.

Wong responded with a comment of his own, claiming that he was already at the airport waiting for somebody else, and hadn’t actually followed the D’Amelio’s anywhere. 

“I was already at LAX waiting for someone to show up, then I saw a big white Rolls Royce drive around and saw Mr D’Amelio & Charli,” he said. 

Neither of Charli or Chase have responded to the drama themselves, and it might just be a case of others fighting the battle for them. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if any similar responses come up in the future, or if the pair decide to respond themselves.
