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.

On October 26, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to a glitch that omitted his YouTube channel from searches a few days before. The bug sparked widespread speculation that he had been “shadowbanned” by Google.

The YouTube community was rocked on October 19 when rumors began to spread that the platform’s largest content creator, PewDiePie, had been shadowbanned. However, it was quickly clarified to be a bug and his account was fixed.

The Swede addressed the drama in his first video back since the glitch. While the star believed that people were too quick to jump to conclusions about him being banned, he did have questions for Google as to why his channel was the only one affected.

PewDiePie responds to YouTube after “shadowban” glitch

Fans of the personality became concerned on October 19 when his channel disappeared from searches on YouTube. His latest video tanked in views as no one could see it without a direct link. Google then released a statement and said it was an error before fixing his channel hours later.

Responding to the incident, Pewds revealed that he didn’t think he was shadowbanned as his account had been having issues for days. “People started noticing my video wasn’t getting any views. And it just went everywhere. There was a bunch of news for it!” he said, before he joked, “Shadow ban! They creep from the shadows and they ban you!”

Despite not being overly concerned, Kjellberg did find it peculiar that it mainly impacted his channel and nobody else’s. “I didn’t think they shadowbanned me, I just assumed it was a glitch. But it begs the question, how does that happen? How did it happen? It didn’t happen to anyone else. I asked around.”

The popular entertainer later joked about YouTube trying to explain the glitch, after reacting to a fan submission on Reddit. “We shadowbanned our biggest creator! Yeah, yeah it was weird. It was weird, what in the world,” he said.

To add salt to the wound, Pewds celebrated his birthday on October 24, but instead of well wishes from fans, his subreddit was flooded with users concerned that he had been shadowbanned by Google. It should also be stated there is no confirmation that the company even does bans in this manner.

At the time of writing, the star’s account is back to normal, and his uploads are getting millions of views again. If nothing else, the incident shows just how many people love the 31-year-old entertainer. Viewers were quick to rally together for the content creator – further proof that Kjellberg is the king of the platform.
