Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul released his documentary mocking the Flat Earth community on March 20 – but they could be hitting back at his video in a big way.

Paul posted a Tweet on March 28 that he promptly deleted, where he claimed that his home had been robbed by a Flat Earther.

“Flat Earthers just tried to rob me,” Paul wrote, inciting mass confusion and concern across his fanbase.

The YouTuber later released a video to his Instagram story documenting the incident, which showed law enforcement restraining the robber – who answered that his name was “Charlie.”

“Why the fuck does this always happen in my life?” a seemingly bewildered Paul asked the camera.

Paul likewise posted a photo of a broken window, which the robber apparently used to gain entry into his mansion.

However, speculation later arose concerning the incident, with the likes of Drama Alert’s ‘KEEMSTAR’ noting that the police officer in Paul’s photo looked similar to the uniform of YouTube personality and “fake cop” Patty Mayo.

Patty Mayo even Tweeted to Paul about the attempted robbery, writing, “Right place right time. Glad you’re ok.”

While Paul has yet to release a statement concerning the debacle as of March 31, other fans across the space are questioning if the “robbery” wasn’t merely a stunt for an upcoming video.

However, if true, this wouldn’t be the first time Paul has been the subject of unwelcome visitations; the YouTuber performed a citizens’ arrest of a legitimate home invader in February 2018, who oddly decided to pass out on his sofa rather than pilfer any valuables.

Paul likewise claimed that his documentary over the Flat Earth community was made as a “fuck you” to his haters, following the YouTuber’s series of controversies throughout his career on the platform.

Some Flat Earthers weren’t happy with his mockumentary, with Flat Earth International Conference organizer Robbie Davidson vehemently decrying Paul’s film on Twitter – and even appearing on an episode of ABC’s ‘Nightline’ to discuss the matter.

UPDATE: Paul has since uploaded a video of the encounter, which appears to be a prank, considering the content’s warning message that asked viewers not to try any of the “activities, stunts or pranks” shown in the ensuing content.

Call of Duty

xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

The face when the CoD lobby gets a little too lit.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
