Controversial YouTube star Logan Paul is no stranger to a boxing challenge, and his latest proposition involves popstar Justin Bieber, as well as infamous actor Tom Cruise.

Logan Paul certainly isn’t unfamiliar with social media confrontation with other influencers and celebrities, and his latest hit is directed towards Justin Bieber.

This comes after Bieber confused the internet by propositioning Tom Cruise to an MMA fight out of seemingly nowhere.

“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight?” the popstar tweeted.

The Mission Impossible star hasn’t responded, but that didn’t stop Logan Paul from chiming in with a proposition of his own.

YouTube: Logan PaulLogan is not afraid of little confrontation.

The proposition

“Why you wanna fight a 56 year old… let’s dance,” Logan responded, quoting Bieber’s original tweet.

The popstar has yet to respond, but seeing a brawl between the pair would be absolutely legendary, and would certainly go down in internet history.

UFC fighter Justin Gaethje then responded to the YouTuber’s tweet, saying, “I’ll fight the both of you at the same time.”

This sent fans into an uproar, with one user tweeting, “I’m finally interested.” while another replied, “Gaethje please don’t add fuel to this shitshow.”

Logan loves to fight

Logan has really stepped up into the world of boxing, and was recently supposed to participate in a “slap battle” against some of Russia’s greatest slap champions.

The YouTube star uploaded a video showing him knocking an opponent unconscious with just one single slap – something so crazy, fans accused him of faking it.

Logan has since pulled out of the competition, citing his brain damage and also fears over it turning into a controversy similar to the Suicide Forest video.

Though he isn’t competing in Russia, the vlogger is set to face off against KSI again in November 2019, though no date or venue has been set yet.

Vinnie Hacker lashes out at “manipulative” fans after TikTok fame

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
