JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji and the Minecraft YouTuber Fundy have been criticized for making inappropriate jokes on streamer Quackity’s Jackbox Twitch stream.

Jackbox is a party game with a variety of minigames. One of the games, Quiplash, involves finishing sentence starters in the funniest way possible, with viewers able to tune in and vote for the answers they believe to be funniest.

It has become a favorite among Twitch streamers who want a party game that is interactive with large audiences.

However, some viewers were not happy with how Quackity’s February 19 stream panned out, as both KSI and Fundy were heavily criticized for making jokes about sexual misconduct.

One of the sentence fillers came after the topic: “What you never want to hear after the words: ‘Don’t worry…'”, which Fundy completed with, “the drugs will make her forget.”

In a game of Mad Verse City, which pits players against each other in a rap battle, one set of lyrics entered by Fundy said: “I’m slaying these verses you don’t need a litter. Want a lasting relationship? Make sure not to hit her.”

Meanwhile, KSI was called out for making a joke about children. One joke said: “This year’s LEAST popular kids’ toy is: ‘The Child M*lestor’.” In a now-viral Twitter thread, the joke was slammed as “not funny at all.”

One fan urged Fundy to admit to wrongdoing. She said: “He has done this type of joke MORE THAN TWICE and he still hasn’t addressed [them]… He needs to get educated on this matter and to apologize.”

In response to the criticism, KSI came out in support of Fundy in a message sent to the Minecraft streamer on Twitter. He said: “Here for you if you need it bro.”

KSI had previously jokingly pleaded on stream for people not to ‘cancel’ him and Fundy. “I’ve seen the tweets, it hurts my feelings,” he laughed.

However, others have defended KSI and Fundy, with one fan urging critics to “calm” themselves.

KSI has spoken about ‘cancel culture’ before, having once claimed he can never be canceled because his name cannot trend on Twitter.

Fundy is yet to publicly comment on the situation.

YouTube star turned amateur boxer Jake Paul is once again calling out Conor McGregor and even reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a new video ahead of his April 17 fight against Ben Askren.

Paul has been relentless in his pursuit of securing a boxing match against the Irishman McGregor, frequently challenging him in videos, making fight offers and videos mocking the UFC veteran.

On February 23, the YouTuber took things a step further by bringing McGregor’s rival, Khabib Nurmagomedov, into the mix, mocking the Russian and his mannerisms.

In the short video, Paul impersonates McGregor, Khabib and Askren in a series of sketches to promote his April 17 bout.

Jake Paul has become a force in the boxing community.

In the first part of the clip, Jake puts on his best Irish accent and pretends to be McGregor having a phone call with UFC President Dana White after his loss to Dustin Poirier.

“Dana, I’m sorry I lost, mate. I bought this fooking Lamborghini though,” he joked.

Next, he pretended to be Khabib while wearing his signature Papakha doing a press conference in the wake of McGregor’s loss at UFC 257.

“This is what happens when you spar little kids, okay? I spar back,” he said in his best Russian accent. “Conor McGregor must respect gym. Conor McGregor no respect gym.”

In perhaps his best skip, Paul put on an afro-style wig and a “Vote for Pedro” shirt combining both Ben Askren and Napoleon Dynamite.

“I just got back from my hip surgery, now I’m going to fight Jake Paul for a bunch of money. I’m going to invest all of it into Siacoin,” the YouTuber mocked.

Askren, however, didn’t take too kindly to the video and didn’t even think it was worth all the effort. In a quote tweet, the 36-year-old called the video “average work at best.”

“The guy has a full-time production staff and he can’t come up with anything better???” Askren asked to the tune of a whopping three question marks.

Knowing Jake, this won’t be the last time he takes aim at Askren ahead of their fight. We’ll have to see if he can walk the walk after all this trash talk when the two step into the ring on April 17.
