Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul broke some solemn news on the morning of April 6, notifying his followers of the loss of his Pomeranian pup, ‘Kong da Savage.’

In an Instagram post, Paul revealed that Kong had been killed by a coyote in the middle of the night, saying that the tiny dog was overwhelmed against the likes of the wild animal.

“… my son Kong da Savage was taken by a coyote last night from our front yard,” Paul said of the situation. “Despite his savagery, he didn’t stand a chance. Fuck.”

Paul gave a pained, if humorous, take on the situation, claiming that he would get revenge on the “yotes” for attacking Kong.

Paul’s post incited an outpour of support from social media stars across the platform, with the likes of Instagram model Sommer Ray and ‘Tik Tok’ star Caden Conrique expressing their sympathy for Kong’s passing in the comments.

Even longtime rival Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji paid his respects to Paul with a sympathetic Tweet, writing, “Sorry to hear about Kong, bro.”

Paul appeared to appreciate KSI’s comments, replying with a, “Respect, thank you man.”

Who was Kong da Savage?

Kong was featured in a number of Paul’s vlogs and videos, and even appeared in episodes of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast from time to time.

Kong wasn’t the only furry member of the Maverick family, either; Paul also has a pet mini pig, ‘Pearl Bing Bing,’ as well as a Sun Conure parrot whose name coined the Maverick brand.

Paul’s new Maverick motivation

The loss of Paul’s Pomeranian follows his “get one, give one” initiative, where every purchase of a Maverick hoodie through his website will also donate a hoodie to a child in need.

Paul claimed that he wants to start using his massive presence on YouTube to “inspire and create change,” as well as make a massive turnaround in regards to his past controversies.

“As you guys know, I’ve done a lot of bullshit in my life,” Paul said of his initiative. “But recently I came to the revelation: I want to do some good shit.”

Paul has likewise expressed a desire to step away from YouTube, hoping to branch out into music, stand-up comedy, and filmmaking – and even claimed that being a YouTuber is “wack.”

While Paul’s comments earned him ample backlash, the YouTuber has yet to back down on the matter, and his latest initiative could be proof of his desire for major change in the near future.


UPDATE: Logan Paul has since uploaded an emotional YouTube video describing the incident in full, claiming that two coyotes pulled off a “cunning abduction plan” after jumping his front fence and taking Kong from the premises.

TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio has finally dropped her long-awaited music video with rapper Wiz Khalifa, which initially sparked so much controversy among fans that she deleted a teaser for the tune two days prior to its release.

Dixie D’Amelio is more than TikTok royalty; alongside her impressive 45 followers on the viral video app, Dixie has also signed a major record deal with Hitco, releasing her own original music.

While her single ‘Be Happy’ was met with general acclaim among her fans, her subsequent song ‘One Whole Day’ was instantly met with vitriol among TikTok users, with many criticizing the star for her lyrics and singing ability.

In fact, the hate got so bad that D’Amelio promptly deleted her teaser for the song two days before its official release, sparking conversation — once again — about the brutal nature of TikTok’s userbase.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie said of the fiasco. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she added.

However, it looks like the trolls couldn’t stop her from releasing the official song on December 4, the music video for which already has 494,000 views at the time of writing — and we have to admit, it’s a certified bop! (Don’t blame us if it gets stuck in your ears for the next week, though.)

Dixie appears to have gotten over the backlash, too; she even uploaded satirical TikTok where she feigned crying as a duet to a user who mocked those currently criticizing the song.

Dixie likewise hit out at critics in a paparazzi interview on December 3, giving haters a good piece of her mind regarding the shocking amount of backlash she received.

“Everyone judges a song over the first five seconds,” the TikToker exclaimed. “I get it, but give constructive criticism. Don’t tell me to f**king go to therapy for a song you don’t like!”

However, it seems that reviews for ‘One Whole Day’ are still mixed — but it doesn’t look like Dixie is letting the trolls bring her down, anymore. You go girl!
