One of YouTube’s biggest creators, Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji, is taking a lot of heat for his ‘ungrateful’ response to a massive mural of himself made special for one of his fans.

The YouTuber was tagged on an incredible portrait, but the face of the Sidemen was more curious about the purpose of the painting rather than the voicing his praise for the craft, and people quickly took notice.

“Painted for my daughter at my Ladywell wall,” artist Lionel Stanhope said while featuring a larger-than-life creation in honor of the famous content creator. KSI noticed the painting, and replied in kind: “Why would your daughter want you to do this?” with laughing emojis.

The YouTuber found the gesture a bit humorous, but his reaction hit a soft spot with onlookers who took issue with how he reacted.

“She’s probably a fan of you dawg,” one person told KSI. “You gotta start appreciating the things some people do for you in your Reddit videos as well. Trashing a lot of talented people that put effort and time into giving you a piece of their art and you just ignore that to clown them in any way…”

More people were memeing the YouTuber for his response, with some people thinking that his reply was a bit disparaging to the artist that actually got the mural up regardless of its purpose.

“Mate, he spent ages doing that. Show a bit of decency,” another person said, with other accounts also expressing similar sentiments.

The 27-year-old YouTuber has been known to make hilarious digs at his own expense, but most people didn’t believe this occasion merited that kind of retort.

That said, not everyone was convinced that KSI was bashing on the painting; one user pointed out that he may be making fun of his own image being portrayed in an impressive way rather than the mural itself: “I’m pretty sure he’s calling himself ugly lmao.”

As to why Stanhope’s daughter would want this portrait made, one person said, “Because you (KSI) are a hero in many of our lives, and without knowing you personally it can get hard to show our respect and how thankful we are.”

The star YouTuber has yet to respond to the backlash, but until then, there’s been plenty of people filing in to commend the artist for his efforts.

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
