YouTube star Logan Paul met with longtime rival KSI for their UK press conference on October 7 – but some of Paul’s trash talk sparked outrage across the net, which he addressed in the season finale of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast.

Paul took a few shots below the belt toward KSI during their on-stage showdown, referencing alleged rumors that his opponent had forced multiple women to undergo abortions after getting physical with them.

“I might kill this man,” Paul taunted. “Y’all may not know, but JJ’s on his fifth abortion. His fifth. That’s five babies dead. And I think Imma return the favor. And I might kill you, man.”

Needless to say, much of the net was outraged over the YouTuber’s comments, which spurred the creation of the “#loganpaulisoverparty” hashtag shortly thereafter.

Paul addressed the outrage on an episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast three days later, staunchly reminding critics that he’d drawn phalluses on each Senate member who’d voted in favor of Alamaba’s proposed abortion ban in mid-May.

“Yo, I’ll say it,” he announced after referencing his “semi-viral” artwork. “I’m pro-choice. And I’m happy to be vocal about it.”

That’s not all: Paul claimed that he’d made the controversial statement as a means to get under KSI’s skin ahead of their rematch, and explained why he hadn’t issued an apology for the divisive sentiment.

“We just felt that because I did not take a stance and I said something that was harsh in the context of a fight where I am trying to kill this man and he’s trying to kill me,” he continued. “Because that could happen in boxing, we’re taking it that seriously… We definitely didn’t feel like an apology was necessary. Maybe a clarification.”

Although he feared he’d get “canceled” again, it doesn’t look like the Maverick mogul is slowing down anytime soon, claiming that his comeback from the infamous “Suicide Forest” incident in Japan was his “biggest fight” in light of his upcoming bout.

KSI and Logan Paul will touch gloves in the Los Angeles Staples Center on November 9 , with streaming provided through sports broadcasting site DAZN.

How to download and save videos on TikTok

As long as a creator has the feature switched on, users are able to download TikTok videos right from the app onto their phones for later reference – but TikTok has made the process very simple.

While you can browse through any videos you’ve liked by accessing the tab in your profile, TikTok’s current lack of a save folder system like Instagram means searching for a particular video you saw a few months ago rather difficult.

Whether it’s a recipe for a pasta dish you only now have found the time to make or a tutorial for that TikTok dance that you can’t quite grasp, sometimes it’s easier to have it tucked away in your camera roll for easy access.

TikTok has become a hub for all sorts of viral trends.

Fortunately, TikTok has a feature installed natively within the app that allows you to save a video to your camera roll in just a few steps – providing that the creator of whatever video you’re trying to download has a public profile, and allows people to save their videos.

How to save TikToks to your camera roll?

  1. Locate the video you wish to download.
  2. Press and hold the screen to activate the menu.
  3. The top option should be ‘Save Video’ with a download icon next to it – select this button to download the video to your camera roll.

There is also an alternate way to access the ‘Save Video’ button, though both methods produce the same results.

Essentially it’s just a case of whatever’s more convenient for you, as the most frequently used menu differs from user to user.

  1. Locate the video you want to save.
  2. Press the arrow on the sidebar to open the ‘Share’ menu.
  3. At the bottom row of icons, there will be a circle with a download button in it. Tap this to download the video.

It’s important to note that the username TikTok trademark will appear throughout the video, but this is to ensure that people do not steal other people’s content and claim it as their own.

The feature is super useful for when you don’t want to lose a specific TikTok amongst the thousands of videos that you like.
