Popular British YouTuber and rapper Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has hit back at Jake Paul’s claims that he’s ‘scared’ of a boxing match, as the wait for a fight between the two men goes on. 

Despite the pair being heavily rumored to be setting up a fight for months now, a boxing match between KSI and Jake Paul has not yet materialized. KSI has now overcome Jake’s older brother Logan across two fights, while the younger Paul brother beat out Deji before breezing past AnEsonGib in the first round.

This, along with the war of words that has raged between the two men for the past few months, led many to believe that one final fight was on the way. However, Paul has since been confirmed as fighting ex-NBA star Nate Robinson on September 12.

The fight with Robinson means that any bout between KSI and Jake Paul will likely not happen until 2021, but the pair’s verbal battles have continued.

In an August 7 YouTube video, KSI addressed the Paul brothers once again, and responded to claims made by Jake that he is “scared” of a potential fight.

Asked by older brother Logan whether he was worried about “over-performing” and scaring KSI, Jake responded: “I think KSI is already scared.”

In reply, KSI laughed and said: “Says the guy who made a fake contract, and tried to get me to sign said fake contract. What? I’m scared? Jake, I am not scared, I want to fight you. Trust me. I want to beat the living sh*t out of you.”

“But I can’t!” he continued. “You know why? Because we’re in a pandemic right now. I know you don’t care about the pandemic because you literally threw a party during it… can you be more dumb? That’s just incredibly selfish.”

Criticism of Paul’s behavior during the ongoing health crisis has been widespread, but some, including Jake himself, have defended it.

The pair do look set to fight each other at some point but, as KSI makes clear, the current global situation is not one conducive to travel or large groups of spectators gathering.

We will have to wait and see how this one unfolds but, for the time being, neither man is backing down.

A popular TikTok hairstylist has turned off comments on all platforms after claims of discrimination went viral, leading to people review bombing her Yelp page. But who exactly is Hair by Chrissy and why has she gone so viral?

Video sharing app TikTok is the perfect breeding ground for virality, with videos going from nothing to hundreds of thousands of likes overnight, trends sweeping its huge user base with its spookily smart algorithm.

But many users have found themselves coming across huge talking points that have seemingly sprung out of the blue, and one of those phenomena is Hair by Chrissy who has found herself ‘cancelled’ overnight. But many are confused as to exactly who she is and why there are so many videos springing up about her.

Hair by Chrissy is a hair stylist TikToker, with a relatively sizable following of 1.5 million. She has previously styled huge TikTok stars such as Dixie D’Amelio and Cynthia Parker, and owns Habit Salons in both LA and Arizona.

Chrissy initially caught some backlash when salon customers emerged with reviews claiming that that the salon was not enforcing the use of masks, in an apparent flouting of recent regulations.

As this criticism began to brew, viral TikToks started to pick up traction that documented the many reviews that had flooded Habit Salon’s Yelp page, claiming that Chrissy had been discriminatory to people of color.

The reviews alleged that Chrissy “doesn’t do ethnic hair” and many viral TikToks claim that the salon has been deleting reviews that in particular call out alleged incidents of misconduct by staff members against people of color.

One particularly scathing review claimed the salon provided “mediocre hairstyles by an entitled anti-masker. Definitely not worth anyone’s time. Extensions don’t look blended at all and she doesn’t give a crap about you unless you have TikTok followers. This old lady is cancelled.”

Yelp itself even ended up freezing the salon’s review pages due to the “increased public attention,” the viral drama starting to appear on people’s For You Pages globally.

Hair by Chrissy herself has now turned off comments on all her social media platforms to deflect the hate, but continues to post videos and images to her various accounts. She even reposted a video from her former videographer claiming she’s one of the most “talented and hardworking people he knows.”

That hasn’t stopped memes about the bizarre incident to flood both TikTok and Twitter, with many joking they are on “Hair by Chrissy TikTok” and saying “Hair by Chrissy on TikTok said I see your White House garden party and I raise you an indoor salon with no masks and questionable aesthetics.”

At the time of writing there has been no formal response to the outrage from the popular TikTok stylist, and they continue to post as normal.
