Some of the internet’s biggest personalities have stepped in to react to Logan Paul after a video leaked online of a man that some immediately thought was actually him.

The popular content creator is no stranger to being the center of attention when it comes to the internet taking shots at him from all angles – with plenty of YouTubers mocking his infamous Japanese Suicide Forest video and having KSI take literally jab at him inside a boxing ring.

Now, though, with a video surfacing online that claims to contain footage of the Paul brother being intimate with another man – which he quickly rubbished as fake and clickbait – some of his friends, family, and biggest critics have lined up to take their own shots at him.

Impaulsive PodcastThe supposed video surfaced on December 21 – with many claiming Logan was involved.

Logan’s brother Jake first weighed in on the matter by revealing a text exchange that the pair had about the apparent video.

Jake seemed to see the funny side of the things after alerting his brother to the fact that he had been trending, while Logan questioned the whole thing.

Tana Mongeau, who has been in a relationship with Jake and even got ‘married’ to the Paul brother allowed her curiosity to get the best of her as she asked fans to provide a link.

After seemingly watching the video, she weighed in with her analysis, saying it was “not….. not hot?” and that he “threw neck.”

Hours after the video made the rounds on social media, JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji jumped in to mock Logan – circling back to their professional fight from November 9.

“Now I understand why Logan Paul liked clinching me so much LMAO…,” he tweeted, much to the amusement of his own fans.

His boxing trainer Vidal Riley also couldn’t stop himself from making a joke about the youtube pair’s rematch. “JJ’s win made Logan explore his options not only career wise…” he tweeted. 

Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem weighed in on the whole situation as well after watching the video in question and related it to his own experience of similar claims.

“It probably not him. Definitely looks like him! You can’t see his face good enough,” he tweeted. “Keep in mind there are like 3 hat-wearing beard gay videos that people spam at me daily. None are actually me.”

Of course, the Paul brother has already pushed the claims away and given an initial reaction in his own tweets.

However, he will more than likely address in further detail during a YouTube video or his next imPaulsive podcast.

YouTuber and makeup mogul Jeffree Star has finally opened up about the drama from this past summer, which kicked off after critics accused he and fellow influencer Shane Dawson of attempting to sabotage beauty guru James Charles.

Jeffree Star is a huge name in the influencer world. Starting out as a MySpace icon and music artist, Star later migrated to YouTube, where he cultivated a massive community of fans and even kicked off his own makeup brand.

Now, Jeffree Star Cosmetics is a company held in high regard among makeup circles, but recent drama has placed a shadow over the brand’s owner.

In summer 2020, controversy sparked regarding Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star after rumors began circulating online that the two had orchestrated the canceling of James Charles in May 2019.

This speculation heightened after Tati Westbrook — a beauty YouTuber behind the “Bye Sister” video of viral fame — accused Star and Dawson of feeding her “poisonous lies” about Charles, which had purportedly led her to create the 2019 video.

The entire scandal was also wrapped up in multiple additional controversies surrounding both Star and Dawson, which even saw the involvement of Jada Pinkett Smith amid the outrage.

However, the summer has come and gone, and Star has now opened up about what it was like being at the center of intense internet vitriol.

YouTubers Shane Dawson and Jeffree Star came under scrutiny in late June after makeup mogul Tati Westbrook accused them of orchestrating the 2019 drama around James Charles.

“When everything happened this summer, it was just all so… it was just a lot,” Star explained during an episode of the ‘The Sip’ podcast with Dawson’s fiancé, Ryland Adams. “It was so mentally draining and crazy. It was traumatic.”

“I had never experienced that before,” he continued, revealing that he’d even been told to end his own life by critics. “To continuously hear that over and over and over… it was so crazy. The new normal became aggressive mental abuse. But I’m not trying to say that for sympathy.”

Star’s statement on the drama has been met with mixed reviews, with some feeling that he is “refusing to take accountability,” while others show sympathy toward the YouTuber in wake of the overwhelming negative reactions he received.
