YouTuber Logan Paul uploaded a response video to Shane Dawson’s docuseries, which entertained the probability that both Paul brothers could be sociopaths.

Logan defended his credibility in his response, and explained the difference between sociopaths and psychopaths – terms that Dawson appeared to use synonymously in his series.

However, Paul likewise hinted at further discord in his family, and claimed that he didn’t even like his own brother.

“I get that not everyone likes my brother,” Paul said. “Me included. I mean, the Paul family is currently surrounded by controversy – a fault of our own.”

Paul went on to further detail their relationship, but backtracked on his previous statement, instead claiming that he ‘loved’ Jake, but doesn’t speak to him as much as he feels he ought to.

“As much as I love Jake, we don’t talk like normal brothers do,” he admitted. “Our family is a bit, uh… cuckoo, if you couldn’t tell.”

Paul’s comments follow H3H3’s Ethan Klein’s podcast, where the YouTuber divulged a private conversation he had with Jake Paul that revealed the toxic nature of the brothers’ relationship.

“‘Honestly, it’s really bad,” Klein recalled Jake saying. “‘We honestly really hate each other.’”

Paul family patriarch Greg Paul has likewise been in the news for a controversy surrounding his possible involvement with underage girls. While Greg has vehemently denied the claims, hackers continue to threaten more leaks of potentially sensitive material.

The next episode in Dawson’s series will likely address the family’s dynamics, as hinted at by its title, ‘Understanding the Family.’

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy trends on Twitter.
#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
