The beef between YouTubers Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji and Logan Paul just turned up a notch, thanks to Logan Paul’s Flat Earth ‘mockumentary.’

Paul released his highly criticized ‘documentary’ over the Flat Earth community on March 20, sparking a slew of reactions from users across the internet – including KSI, himself.

KSI retweeted Paul’s video with a scathing caption, writing, “I really hit you that hard, huh?” in reference to their August 2018 boxing match.

Paul shot back at KSI’s comment in kind, replying with a black and white image of him punching KSI in the side of the head during their previous bout.

While KSI has yet to respond to Paul’s photo, this is isn’t the first time the two have exchanged shots over Twitter. The rivals got in a heated spat in early March, after KSI expressed a greater interest in fighting Jake Paul instead of a rematch with Logan.

Amidst the dirt-laden trash talk, KSI referenced Logan Paul’s fling with Instagram model Corinna Kopf, claiming that Fortnite pro FaZe Tfue had stolen the model out of Paul’s grasp.

“The people don’t care about you anymore,” KSI continued. “…you’re the Suicide Forest boy, and that’s all you’ll ever be. Step aside.”

KSI & Logan Paul exchanged savage shots over Twitter in early March, where KSI unabashedly referenced Paul’s highly controversial vlog in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest.’

While KSI and Paul were scheduled for a boxing rematch in 2019, it looks like their next meeting may not even happen, as apparent scheduling conflicts have arisen – as well as Jake Paul’s involvement in the mix, who claimed that he wants “nothing more in life” than to box KSI.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect calls out Activision & Warzone tourney admins for hacker drama

Following scandal over a disqualified cheater in a Warzone tournament, Dr Disrespect is calling out Activision’s lack of an anti-cheat and Twitch Rivals’ lack of a formal process for investigating hacks.

In hours of drama that rocked the competitive Call of Duty: Warzone community, a smaller streamer, ‘Metzy_B,’ was accused of cheating during the $250K Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament. Prior to the final match of the event, his team was disqualified by tournament admins and stripped of any chance at tournament earnings.

Twitch Rivals have remained relatively quiet on the issue, practically ignoring it during the broadcast and offering up a minimally worded explanation over Twitter. In their explanation, the admins simply explained that Metzy “was ruled to be cheating” and subsequently “removed from the event.”

With that lack of transparency, rumors and accusations flew. Former Call of Duty League pro, one of the highest Warzone earners currently, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren spent hours interrogating the accused and having a friend take control of Metzy’s PC to dive through his logs for any proof of hacks. This all leads to Dr Disrespect asserting that, with or without an Activision anti-cheat, tournament organizers need to do better.

As shared by ‘WickedGoodGames,’ the Two-Time has a clear perspective on this issue. If the developers can’t institute an effective anti-cheat, then every single tournament must “define a process in finding out if he is [cheating] or not … obviously outside of the whole Call of Duty not having an anti-cheat kind of software built in.”

The drama was obviously divisive, as most participants in the tournament believed Metzy (and others) to be cheating, while others weren’t so sure. With no one knowing precisely how Twitch handled the situation, the community was left to investigate themselves.

As Dr Disrespect has heard, the “purple snakes” disqualified Metzy based on “a couple suspicious clips” and without asking to check his computer. This is echoed by the accused himself, who has since commended Tommey for trying to figure out what the admins had failed to.

That account goes directly against others, as fellow competitor BobbyPoff reacted by alleging that Metzy was, in fact, originally reluctant to display his task manager logs.

While the truth may be impossible to find at this point, as Twitch Rivals have given no explanation of their process and any number of files could have been deleted by the time Tommey got access, Dr Disrespect’s point is proven by the drama.

If Activision can’t deliver a functioning anti-cheat and tournament organizers don’t have a strict, transparent policy for hackers — then community infighting over a “grey area” is unavoidable.
