Popular YouTubers Jake Paul and Joe Weller threw down in a last-minute boxing match on March 23 – but their bout is earning some hilarious criticism from other creators in the space.

YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji uploaded a reaction to the match on March 29 after announcing the video two days prior, taking some scathing shots at both combatants in the process.

Although KSI felt that the entire match was set up as a “trap” to make Weller look bad from the beginning, he acknowledged that Paul threw a decent body shot near the bout’s end, which ultimately took Weller out – although he didn’t miss an opportunity to insult Jake in doing so.

“Joe has literally just been embarrassed this whole video,” KSI said of the match. “Literally this whole video was just a Jake Paul ego-flex.”

KSI also roasted Paul’s diss track against Weller, calling the clip “embarrassing” due to Joe’s own role as a backup dancer in the video despite the diss track being against him.

“Are you really going this low for clout?” KSI asked. “…Jake Paul is literally mugging off Joe Weller in front of his face, and Joe Weller is pointing at himself! …Joe, have some dignity, man.”

KSI even popped off on Jake after watching the diss track, claiming that he hated him more than his long-time rival Logan Paul – and even gave a possible peek at a fight with Jake in the future.

“If I have to fuck up your big bro to get to you, Jake, then I’m fucking down, bro,” he said pointedly.

Jake Paul and Joe Weller made plans for an impromptu boxing match after Weller announced his seven-day trip to Los Angeles on March 18, leading to a quickly organized fight in Paul’s backyard.

Weller ultimately lost the bout after sustaining a well-placed body shot by Paul to the gut, prompting some fans to speculate that Jake had paid Weller off beforehand.

Despite the widespread criticism, Weller denied any accusations of taking money from Paul, claiming that he would “never take money to look bad and take a loss” in a self-deprecating Tweet on March 27.

In the midst of the speculation, KSI confirmed that his rematch with Logan Paul is still a-go, despite previously shrugging off Logan in favor of Jake. 

While the fight was scheduled for November 2019, no further details for the rematch have yet been released.

Heartbroken gamers react to PS5 destroyed with industrial shredder

A viral clip showing a PlayStation 5 getting minced by an industrial shredder is garnering a ton of reactions among the gaming community who were horrified to watch the prized console getting absolutely destroyed.

It’s been nearly a month since the PS5 was released and it hasn’t gotten any easier to find the console available from brick-and-mortar stores to online marketplaces. The reality is millions of gamers won’t be able to touch Sony’s next-gen console until well after the holiday season is over.

That could explain why some in the community are a bit touchy seeing the hardware being put through a meat grinder, so to speak.

YouTube channel ‘Captain Crunch Experiments’ specializes in putting objects through the high-powered shredder, and it was the PS5’s turn to show us what it’s made of.

The outcome was as you’d expect. The plastic panels of the PS5 were easily devoured into bits, though the full body of the machine took a bit more convincing to get it through to the other end.

As Sony’s metallic behemoth put on one of the most heartbreaking ASMRs to date, the viewers were mixed. Some were impressed that the console put up such a fight, but nearly all PlayStation fans were reeling by the time the video closed.

“What exactly happens here?” one person wrote, before listing out the sins from the production. “Here’s what: Destroying currently out of stock PS5, throwing away rare non-renewable materials, wasting all the electricity that went into producing those PS5s => unnecessary pollution, and producing shit quality unsatisfying videos.”

“This is satisfying but pains me at the same time lol,” another wrote on the YouTube post.

“You need actual help lots of kids want the PS5 For Christmas and you buy one and just shred it like why though a child is now missing out on his PS5 for Christmas that’s because you bought it and shredded it,” someone else said of the clip.

We saw a similar outcry when The Mob’s Classify pranked Froste by slamming a brand new PS5 console to the ground and finishing the job with a sledgehammer.

Gamers will all feel that disturbing knot in the pit of their stomachs watching the video, and the sentiment around the PS5’s destruction won’t ease up until there’s vastly more stock for eager customers.
