Music artist and social media celeb Madison Beer shocked fans by announcing an unexpected hiatus from TikTok, calling the app “hateful” and citing issues with body shaming comments — but it doesn’t seem like her break is as permanent as viewers first believed.

Aside from her musical career, Madison Beer is also a popular presence on social media, boasting over seven million followers on TikTok and over 17 million on Instagram due to her unique look and viral videos.

However, it seems that Beer has grown tired of TikTok, as evidenced by a slew of comments the star made on the application that revealed her struggles with the platform’s negative outlook on female creators’ bodies.

“This might be my last TikTok for a bit, my loves,” the “Stained Glass” singer began. “The energy on this app is draining me. So much hate and negativity. It’s all I see these days.”

“I’m tired of seeing a girl dance on my fyp, only to go to the comments and see people making fun of her body or something,” she continued. “It hurts me. So much.”

Despite the severity of her comments, it doesn’t seem that Beer’s hiatus from the app will be as long as fans feared, with the star returning on Instagram Live with a message clarifying her stance on the subject.

According to the singer, she didn’t mean she was officially “done” with the platform in her posts, instead explaining that she merely needed to take a short breather from the “negativity” on the app.

“I made a statement saying that I was going to be done with TikTok, and that I’m going off TikTok, and that’s not necessarily true,” she clarified. “I basically just said that I think I need to take a break from posting, maybe. I don’t really know what my point was from my post.”

Beer isn’t the only creator speaking out against body shaming on the site, by far; in fact, TikTok’s most-followed star, Charli D’Amelio, addressed hateful comments just a day later in a series of pointed Tweets.

“STOP TALKING ABOUT MY BODY!” the star Tweeted. “It’s not your place to tell me if I’m losing weight or gaining weight.”

With other names like Dixie D’Amelio and even Addison Rae also fighting against body shaming on TikTok, Beer’s comments mark just another instance of content creators getting frustrated with negativity on the viral video app.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

His Polaris slingshot is one of his less practical vehicles.

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
