Logan Paul shuts down slap fight opponent’s claims that viral video was faked

Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is no stranger to insane stunts and dangerous challenges, which saw him sign up for Generation Iron’s Battle on the Volga in late April – a competition between some of Russia’s greatest slap champions, including the 370 pound “Dumpling.”

However, Paul pulled out of the competition at the last minute, thanks to a now-viral video that the YouTuber posted to Twitter a month later.

In the video, Paul can be seen slapping a man unconscious, which he later claimed was the reason he’d bowed out of the slap-battle – but fans were quick to call the video faked.

Fans aren’t the only ones accusing Paul of faking the video, either; in fact, the opponent in the video, professional slapper “Slap for Cash,” has come forward to echo these accusations, even challenging Paul to a bout in the boxing ring after claiming the YouTuber made him “look bad.”

“What man falls frontwards after getting hit?” Slap for Cash asked in an Instagram video on June 20. “I was okay with helping him get out of the recent Russian slap contest. I was alright with even falling on the ground. I’m not alright with how they reacted. You tried to make me look bad? Let’s go in the boxing ring and see what happens.”

Paul promptly responded to Slap for Cash’s video in a series of Tweets, claiming that his allegations “boiled his blood” and that he didn’t feel bad for slapping him due to the “violent content” Slap for Cash promotes.

“Rick, you fucking moron,” Paul began.”…I promise this will not end well for you. I am disgusted that you would do this after everything that I’ve been through. You trying to perpetuate a lie and ‘expose’ me and my credibility.”

Logan even threatened to make a “full-on mini documentary” about his feud with Slap for Cash, featuring an “hour’s worth” of unreleased audio of the slapper being “completely disoriented” after being knocked out.

This wouldn’t be the first time Paul has hit back at accusations of faking a knockout video, either; he “politely” encouraged critics of his Ivan Drago knockout to “go fuck themselves” in an Instagram video in late May – a statement that he’s clearly willing to make again, as evidenced by his reaction to Slap for Cash’s latest allegations.

Paul’s slap drama follows his documentary on his slap battle experience, which ultimately ended in him pulling out of the competition, comparing the potential fallout to his debacle in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ from early 2018.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
