Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul has given his response to mixed martial artist CM Punk’s scathing comments on the possibility of a fight with Paul, as stated in an interview with MMA Fighting on November 27.

CM Punk, of mixed martial arts and former pro wrestling fame, denied any chance of a possible fight with Paul – and even insulted the YouTuber’s popularity as he did so.

“I’m not fighting Logan Paul,” Punk stated decisively. “…Logan Paul is apparently a popular guy, but it’s not in any kind of avenue that I drive my car on.”

Paul has since weighed in on Punk’s comments, as written in a retweet of an article covering Punk’s response on November 28.

“Of course he won’t,” Paul simply wrote.

Paul had challenged CM Punk to a bout in the octagon during an interview with TMZ in early August, just ahead of his boxing match with fellow YouTuber Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji. 

While UFC President Dana White has since decried Paul’s potential involvement in the org, the YouTuber is still raring to fulfill his dreams – and even has some fighters taking his back on the possibility.

However, Punk does not appear to be one of these fighters, and even took savage shots at Paul’s controversial debacle from early 2018, where he garnered massive criticism for vlogging a deceased person in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest.’

“…I’m not into sharing that much of my time and my headspace and my life with somebody that did something that I feel is so reprehensibly disrespectful to the people of Japan, who I love,” Punk said of the incident.

While Punk’s harsh denial incited a stir across the internet, Paul doesn’t appear to be taking it too hard – and could even be mocking Punk’s comments, to boot.

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.
