YouTube star Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji held nothing back when asked who the worst YouTube rapper is.

The Paul brothers might have put out very successful rap tracks during the height of their feud with KSI and his brother Deji Olatjuni, but KSI wasn’t at all impressed with their skills.

He was discussing the state of YouTube rappers on the “What’s Good?” podcast with Miniminter and Randolph when he had more than a few things to say about their skills.

“Oh my god, bro. He is trash!” KSI said of the controversial YouTuber. “He’s one of the worst rappers I’ve ever seen in my life.”

The hosts then tried to come to Jake’s defense saying that even though he’s “not good,” he at least knows how to pick good beats. KSI, however, just wasn’t buying it.

“You’re telling me ‘Champion’ was a good song?!” yelled KSI before starting to mumble lyrics to the song in an attempt to imitate Jake’s style of rapping.

KSI didn’t stop there, however, choosing to also call out his rival, Jake’s older brother, Logan Paul while he was at it.

“And don’t you dare talk to me about Logan Paul. He doesn’t even write his own shit,” KSI offered on Logan. “He’s better than Jake, but Logan doesn’t write his shit so it doesn’t even matter.”

KSI and Deji have been locked in a very publicized feud with Jake and Logan Paul for most of 2018.

KSI then pleads with Jake to stop rapping since he gives YouTuber rappers like KSI a bad name.

“When people think of YouTubers that rap, they think of Jake Paul because of his fucking ‘Everyday Bro,’ which is trash! Everyone on[the song] is trash!” KSI said of the massively popular song by Jake Paul.

Given that there are plans for another fight between the pair of brothers in 2019, this likely won’t be the last time we hear them hit out at each other. 

There’s no word, however, on whether Jake or Logan will actually listen to KSI and stop making rap songs.

Charli D’Amelio slams “out of control” hate from 100m followers scandal

TikTok star Charli D’Amelio is hitting back at the intense criticism she received after joking about not reaching 100 million followers in a year, as well as the hate that followed her tearful Instagram Live on the subject.

Charli D’Amelio is TikTok’s most-followed content creator. Now boasting over 101 million followers, Charli has become the poster girl for the viral video application — but not everyone is a fan of the internet superstar.

The 16-year-old influencer got hit with an avalanche of negativity upon the release of a “Dinner with the D’Amelio’s” episode on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly bemoan not reaching 100 million followers in a year’s time.

The issue quickly erupted into a scandal, with users calling out Charli for purportedly only seeing her fans as “numbers” and being ungrateful for her privileged position as a celebrity.

The hate soon spun into a hurricane of vile comments, with D’Amelio even revealing she’d been sent death threats from angry viewers during a tearful Instagram live addressing the situation. She even lost 1 million followers over the ordeal.

She has discussed the matter yet again in a solo December 3 episode of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast sans sister Dixie D’Amelio, hitting back at the shocking amount of hate she received over the scandal.

“The thing that I think happened was, it spiraled completely out of control,” she said of the situation. “It turned into a place where I was getting threats for my life. When talking about this on Live, I got emotional, because that’s not something that people take lightly.”

“I feel like people really have to understand that yes, I do have a substantial amount of people that follow me on social media,” she continued. “That does not mean that I am not a person. …The entire situation was taken completely out of proportion by lots of people.”

“I know I’m not a disrespectful person. I know that I’m not a genuinely horrible person. I know I’m a good person, at the end of the day. Whether or not everyone agrees with that is for them to figure out, and that’s totally fine.”

Charli’s podcast shines a light on the growing negativity from social media platforms like TikTok, which even bullied the likes of Taio Cruz off the website within just a few days of him creating an account.

This situation serves as an important reminder to remember that no matter the circumstances, there’s always another person behind your phone screen who your words are directly affecting — 100 million followers or not.
