Logan Paul has spoken out against his brother Jake after footage emerged of him at one of the many ongoing riots taking place in the United States.

On May 30, footage was shared across social media that appeared to show Jake Paul in the midst of a group of people looting and rioting in Scottsdale, Arizona, with fireworks being set off and someone even seemingly handing Jake a bottle of vodka stolen from a P.F. Chang’s.

While Jake later came out to respond to the allegations, claiming that they were there by happenstance and he didn’t engage in any of the looting, his actions have still been admonished by fans and critics alike.

Paul came under fire for his actions, but denied taking part in the looting.

On the other side of the spectrum, Logan has been on a clear mission to become a less divisive figure, with much less controversy following him in recent months.

Following the incident, and the supsequent criticism of Jake, Logan came out and condemned his brother’s actions in the latest Impaulsive episode on June 2, and made some interesting points about his sibling.

While discussing the ongoing protests across the country, Logan takes the opportunity to segue into Jake’s situation.

“This one is so hard for me, because I love the kid, I will always love him, but I don’t always like him,” he started. “Sometimes, I do not understand why he does the things he does.”

Logan questioned Jake even being there in the first place, saying that he had spoken to him on the phone and was told that he was only there for a dinner, but admitted that in his opinion the incident was “very on-brand for Jake Paul to be seen at a looting site.”

Despite the above, he did continue by saying that those who think Jake was actively participating in the looting “are a f**king moron.”

While co-host Mike Majlak questioned Jake’s excuse for being in the mall at the time, clearly not convinced by it, as Logan says these things can happen very quickly.

Although it isn’t clear why exactly Jake was there, or why he stayed long enough to be so heavily associated with the looting, Logan clearly condemns his brother but believes he did not have bad intentions when he turned up at the mall.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
