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.


Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
