YouTube star and pro boxer Logan Paul was partying in late January when he was spat on by a purported Univesity of California – Berkeley student, leading to an uncomfortable confrontation that was caught on camera.

The now-viral altercation shows two sides of the story: one video of the woman spitting on Paul and running away and another clip showing Paul confronting the student amidst a crowd of onlookers.

While many know Paul from his multiple controversies, much of the internet feel that he handled the issue with maturity, considering the tension of his conversation with the student.

 

“I’m sorry — not really,” the student admitted after being confronted.

“Listen, I got nothing but love for you, okay?” Paul replied.

“Thank you?” she answered. “I don’t really respect you that much.”

“I like everything about you,” Paul responded after she asked him if he liked her jacket. “But in the future, it’s not cool to spit on people.”

‘The Maverick’ went on to address the altercation during a January 28 episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast, where he called the spitting a physical assault and claimed that he used his own experience with controversy to try to “change” the student’s behavior.

“I’m not really that mad, but also, it’s just really disrespectful,” he reflected. “I wanna see if I can change her in our interaction. Because I’ve done dumb s**t and disrespectful s**t like this. I wanna see if I can talk to her and say something to her that will make her see that this is not how to handle a problem.”

Despite much of the online community praising Paul for his actions, others are commending the woman for spitting on him — something that he also addressed during the podcast.

“My takeaway from this was, everyone’s got an opinion about something,” he continued. “It is so hard to be right and have everyone agree with you. I cannot fathom that in any way, I was in the wrong here.”

Despite the outrage, Paul doesn’t seem to be letting the court of public opinion weigh him down in his quest to move on from being a “controversial YouTuber.”

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
