YouTube star Logan Paul is no doubt an animal lover, owning two pigs, a parrot, a mantis shrimp, and, of course, his husky pup, Broley Blue — a critter who has become the center of controversy for the Maverick brand owner.

Logan Paul came into ownership of Broley following the tragic death and disappearance of his pet Pomeranian, ‘Kong da Savage,’ in April 2019, after the small breed was taken from his front yard by coyotes.

Shortly thereafter, Paul filled the gaping, dog-shaped void in his heart with a new pup, who he since has taken on many adventures — one of which included a fishing excursion in late July.

In a July 22 vlog, Paul and squad geared up to catch fish with some locals, showing sweeping footage of a beautiful mountain lake as he and Broley enjoyed the scenery as the boat they were on sped atop the waters.

YouTuber Logan Paul and his new husky pup Broley are two peas in a pod.

However, things became a bit hairy after Broley seemingly jumped off the boat and was swept underneath it, leading the entire crew to collectively gasp in fear that the pup may have drowned or been caught in the craft’s metal blades.

Fortunately, Broley was able to keep his head above water long enough for Paul to jump overboard and swim him to safety — but some critics feel the entire ordeal was a coordinated stunt for the vlog that endangered his pet’s life.

The Maverick was quick to defend himself against these accusations, clarifying that Broley was not pushed in a pinned comment beneath the video.

“We would NEVER, EVER, EVER, push Broley off the boat,” he wrote. “He jumped and a hand was behind him, petting him, and when he jumped, we attempted to grab him. …watch his body language and you can very evidently see a self-induced, independent jump from the little mut.”

Logan Paul was quick to hit back against accusations of pushing Broley into the lake as a stunt for his vlog.

“Yeah, I just watched in slow motion,” he continued. “Wasn’t even touching him, and when he jumped, the hand followed. Go f*** yourselves.”

Thus far, it seems like much of Paul’s fanbase is standing in solidarity with the YouTuber in wake of allegations of animal mistreatment from angry commenters.

Nessa Barrett hits back at attacks telling her to kill herself

TikToker Nessa Barrett has, once again, had to hit out against some of the trolls who harass her online, after their bullying took a sinister turn. 

Barrett has had a difficult few days after becoming unwittingly involved in the Jaden Hossler and Mads Lewis ‘diss track’ drama.

After hinting at a collaboration with Hossler on Twitter, she was accused of ‘shading’ his ex girlfriend and former friend, Lewis by hiding a range of Twitter replies referring to her.

However, judging by her recent Tweets, Barrett has enough problems of her own to concern herself with someone else’s drama, as she opened up about some of the intense abuse she had recently received online on Twitter.

Nessa Barrett appeals to fans to leave her alone.

In a series of Tweets, she appealed to trolls to “stop telling [her] to kill [her]self,” explaining that she doesn’t “need to hear it anymore on top of [her] own thoughts [she] battle[s] everyday.”

Giving an insight to the struggles of being in the public eye, Barrett tells fans that they “have no idea how draining it is.”

Fans have rallied around Barrett following her Tweets.

In response to these raw and honest Tweets, fans on Instagram rallied around the TikToker, with one user saying: “Imagine receiving thousands of death treats I could never — all I have to say is she’s so strong.”

Another user said that the fact that she had to tweet this was “so sad,” while a further user said “TikTok is so toxic damn.”

Nessa Barrett’s mental health battle

Nessa Barrett has bravely spoken out about her experiences with mental health several times in the past. In an August interview with Entertainment Tonight, she opened up about being diagnosed with conditions like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

“I’ve been in therapy for anxiety since I was like, six,” she said at the time.

“And then, when I was about 14, I was misdiagnosed with depression. And then, recently, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.”

Being a singer as well as a TikToker, she channelled a lot of her mental heath struggles into songs such as her debut single ‘Pain,’ which she explains was written during a “really vulnerable time” where, among other things, she was once again receiving a lot of hate online.

She also spoke out on Twitter in September about the “serious” and “personal” nature of her mental health issues after she was filmed crying in a restaurant by celebrity paparazzo Kevin Wong.

Hopefully, Barrett’s latest Tweets will be enough of a wake up call for trolls to stop harassing her when she is already feeling vulnerable.
