YouTube star Logan Paul is trying to get rid of two ostentatious pieces of furniture in his home — but it looks like his efforts are yielding some unexpected (and hilarious) results.

Throughout the past few weeks, Paul has been advertising his two Mercedes Benz couches in his vlogs, which are essentially shaped like croissants in a unique formation resembling the letter C.

However, they are apparently unbearably uncomfortable, as well as full of saliva and fur from his pet dog, Blue, prompting the YouTuber to try and sell the furniture and replace it with something new.

YouTuber Logan Paul revealed that he’d purchased the Mercedes Benz couches for $90,000 three years ago, and is ready to get rid of the furniture.

It doesn’t seem that his efforts are exactly coming to fruition, though, as he revealed that he had been unable to pass off the furniture, which he originally purchased three years ago at a whopping $45,000 apiece.

Now, he’s trying to sell the couches for a much lower price point, putting them up on Craigslist for a humble rate of $20,000 — but buyers are apparently not as interested in bidding for the pieces as they are in roasting their current owner.

Logan and the gang read through some of the ad’s more humorous replies in his April 1 vlog, revealing some gut-busting burns that left the entire squad in stitches.

Paul cited discomfort – as well as his dogs’ antics on the luxury furniture – as reason for wanting to get rid of the expensive couches.

“Ain’t nobody gonna pay $20k for that ugly piece of s**t,” one user emailed in response.

Another buyer cited Mike Majlak’s overtly physical relationship with his girlfriend as part of their reasons for avoiding the furniture: “For real tho, I was sorta interested until I started to actually f**king think for once. Ahh, Logan’s life is f**ked.”

“Hey Logan, bro, no one’s going to buy the couch so go s**k a d**k,” another taunted.

While these messages may have been brutal, they were all done in good fun, leaving the gang with a decent laugh in spite of their efforts to finally get rid of the couch set.

For now, it looks like Logan will be holding on to his furniture for a little while longer — even if it’s so uncomfortable that Mike would rather “sit on a cactus.”

Singer-songwriter Halsey is pregnant – and social media, from influencers and YouTubers to countless fans, has lit up with congratulations for the beloved cultural sensation.

Ashley ‘Halsey’ Nicolette Frangipane is an American singer-songwriter with Grammy nominations, Billboard accolades and, above all else, a feverish social media following. Known for her activism and eclecticism, the musician has become a cultural icon with fans across the world.

That variety of fans is not restrained to just social media stans, either, as the singer has apparently amassed a ton of appreciation from fellow influencers. Some of the biggest names from YouTube and social media have popped up congratulating her, nestled between messages from the 36.9 million followers Halsey boasts throughout Instagram and Twitter. 

Posting a “surprise” Instagram carousel of baby bump pictures, the 26-year-old’s comment section is filled with verified check marks sending their love and joy. From established models (and fellow activists) like Emily Ratajkowski to YouTube superstars like James Charles, the support has been nothing short of overflowing.

In the replies to Halsey’s viral IG post, influencer Gabbie Hanna was joined by TikTok legend Addison Rae by sending an ecstatic “congratulations” message. Singer Olivia Rodrigo, whose “Drivers License” track has gone viral on TikTok, joined in too, but wasn’t satisfied with just one message.

In all caps (the pinnacle of excitement), Rodrigo sent a “YESSSS” before following up with a “SENDING U SO MUCH LOVE.”

Similarly uppercased, Charles chimed in with a reply that seems to concisely echo the sentiments shared by all of Halsey’s fans and friends: “CONGRATULATIONS AHHH.”

Aside from being happy about the idea of a mini version of Halsey entering the world, close fans are likely well-aware of how meaningful the moment is for her. The singer has been candid about her past with infertility and her desire for a child, as a 2015 miscarriage prompted the song “More” on her Manic album.

In the wake of such a harrowing history with the desire to bear a child, the news of Halsey’s pregnancy is certainly cause for celebration. Caps-locked congratulations are most certainly in order and few, influencers and fans alike, have held back in rejoicing with the singer and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin.

“More,” too, can now be played with added joy. Some of its more expressive lyrics take on a new dimension, as a foreseeing welcome to her baby: “And when you decide it’s your time to arrive, I’ve loved you for all of my life.”
