YouTuber-turned-boxing pro Logan Paul is back in the vlogging game after his split-decision loss to rival KSI — but he’s not the only internet celeb he’s got an issue with, apparently.

David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s most popular personalities, known for his short-form vlogs featuring his group of friends known as the “Vlog Squad,” who usually get up to ridiculous antics like putting his assistant’s drunk texts on a billboard in Los Angeles.

Although Dobrik boasts a whopping 15.7 million subscribers and a huge legacy, Logan Paul showed some apparent distaste for the vlogger’s content, as told during a similarly short vlog uploaded on February 5.

Amidst Paul’s own antics (which included catching a stingray and then subsequently nearly getting impaled by its stinger), “The Maverick” brought up Dobrik’s thumbnails, noting that he seemed to use the same photo of himself for many of them.

“David’s running YouTube right now,” Logan announced. “I’m about to show you boys something. Look at his thumbnails.

“Tell me if you notice the difference between this one and this one. …It’s the same f**king picture!”

That’s not all: YouTuber Tanner Fox even alleged that Dobrik edits in laugh tracks to emphasize funny moments in his videos, which the group proceeded to mock in several subsequent segments.

Although Fox’s claims haven’t been verified, this isn’t the first time that Paul has expressed some wariness towards Dobrik either.

In fact, Paul claimed that the vlogger had broken into the set of his “imPaulsive” podcast in June 2019 and was worried that he would become the “butt of a vlog joke. I don’t want that smoke, dude.”

YouTuber David Dobrik is a massively popular face on social media, boasting over 15 million subscribers.

Paul even claimed to have invited Dobrik onto his podcast in 2018, although he was effectively ‘left on read,’ with the “Vlog Squad” leader instead offering a partnership with Maverick member Mike Majlak.

“I go, ‘Yo, that’s interesting,’” Paul said of the matter. “‘How about you don’t make that brand partnership unless he responds to my text about being on imPaulsive?’”

Although Paul was likely merely poking some lighthearted fun at a fellow content creator, the two remain on relatively rocky terms, with Dobrik having yet to respond to Logan’s public criticism of his viral videos.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
