Popular YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji was left furious after his search for his first win on Fortnite was spoiled by racist abuse. 

After struggling in the first few games, with just a handful of kills to his name, he seemed to be saddened by the lack of communication from his teammates once he’d been shot down. 

However, one player did have a microphone and decided to overstep the mark by aiming a number of racial slurs at him. 

ksi, InstagramThe KSIOlajidebtHD channel has over 5.8m subscribers on YouTube at the time of writing.

The star is still yet to achieve a Victory Royale on all three of the game’s modes, Solo, Duos and Squads, so he decided to see if he could match up with some players that might have some more experience on the game to make a full team. 

Having realized that his new team had two players with headsets connected, KSI started to speak to them. However, one player – BOSS Russki, who claimed to be from Germany, jumped in and asked if he was a “n*****”. 

The player went on to dance in front of him, repeating the word over and over again until KSI decided that he should walk away from the game for a moment. 

Warning: The video below contains racial slurs and unacceptable language. 

“I can’t be arsed. I’m not playing this. What the fuck is going on? What is this game? I come on here to get harassed, this is fucking bullshit” the YouTuber yelled. 

After the squad was eliminated, Russki continued the racial abuse. “BOSS Russki, I will remember that name for the rest of my life. If I’m ever in Germany and I find your fucking face, you’re done” he added. 

KSI was also subject to racial abuse during a fan Q&A, which can be seen in a video he recently uploaded to YouTube. 

That content – as well as this – doesn’t bleep out the offensive language and are still being monetized on the platform despite a member of YouTube’s monetization team recently claiming that this should not be the case, given that racial slurs are included in both.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
