In the second episode of ‘Influenced,’ Dexerto’s Richard Lewis and Mike Kent discuss the biggest stories from the world of online entertainment, including the potential Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather fight, Pokimane facing backlash for using VTuber, and more.

Another crazy week of online entertainment news is in the books, perhaps none more so than the ever-growing rumors that YouTuber Logan Paul will be fighting superstar boxer Floyd Mayweather.

However, despite the prospect of the fight picking up steam, Richard Lewis isn’t convinced it’ll happen: “There’s no way this fight’s going ahead, this is bulls**t. KSI called it out on Twitter, as well, saying it’s a lie, and I’ve got to agree with him.”

Lewis’ point is that, even if this fight would be an exhibition match, the difference of the boxing skill between Mayweather and Paul is so immeasurably vast, that it wouldn’t make sense to even go ahead with it.

Could we actually see Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather face off in the boxing ring? Richard Lewis thinks otherwise.

In other news, popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys kicked off her return from a month-long hiatus by using VTuber (Virtual YouTuber), which displays an animated version of her on-screen instead of the usual face-cam.

She’s gotten a lot of flak from fans and other VTube users over that decision, but Lewis isn’t among those offering criticisms: “I think she’s definitely done stuff where she’s worthy of criticism, but this isn’t one of them. If you’re in the entertainment business and you get the chance to be anonymous, I can understand that’s very tempting.”

YouTube star David Dobrik is one of the internet’s most famous content creators — but living in the limelight isn’t always a cake walk, as he discovered after one of his viewers began stalking his home.

Boasting well over 18 million subscribers on YouTube, it comes as little surprise that Dobrik receives the occasional unwanted visitor at his house, which has happened several times before.

However, this latest incident took a dark turn, as revealed during an episode of Dobrik and Jason Nash’s ‘VIEWS’ podcast in early October where the star revealed one viewer took things a little too far.

During the episode, Dobrik explained that the fan — a young woman in her “early twenties” — had sat outside of his home on the street curb for two days before banging on the door, yelling his name.

In an episode of his VIEWS podcast with Jason Nash, David Dobrik revealed a disturbing encounter with a woman who was stalking him.

After Dobrik went outside to investigate, he reported that the viewer suffered from appeared to be a “panic attack” and quickly shouted “Nevermind, you can’t help me,” before “storming” out of his driveway.

Understandably concerned, Dobrik and company followed the woman, to no avail — but a day later, a neighbor texted the YouTuber that someone had keyed his assistant, Natalie’s, Ford Bronco.

The vehicle (pictured below) was etched with symbols, according to Dobrik, which included his name written in odd lettering.

Upon investigating the car, David found that the woman was nearby, claiming she wanted to “apologize” — but quickly became what he described as “scary,” prompting him to call law enforcement for help in case things got sticky.

Luckily, the star was adamant that he didn’t want to “get her in trouble” but instead wanted her to “get help,” to which she agreed.

While waiting on the police to arrive, Dobrik asked the woman why she’d stalked him, to which she replied: “He told me to just go for it.”

As for who “he” was? Dobrik claimed she said it was “the guy inside my head,” who told her that “if I came here, everything would be answered.”

Thankfully, the police were “super f**king nice” when they arrived and took the woman to a hospital, prompting a hilarious chat with an officer who advised Dobrik to change his name on social media — something he replied he was a “little late” for.

While this is far from the first time an internet celebrity has been outright stalked, it’s good to know that this situation ended peacefully, with Dobrik understanding that his stalker didn’t have bad intentions, but merely needed help.
