Mike Majlak reveals Logan Paul kicked him out over his birthday present

YouTube star Logan Paul was gifted an unusual present for his 25th birthday from longtime friend and podcast host Mike Majlak — but it looks like he was so unimpressed with the gift that he gave his bestie the boot.

While Logan Paul has been vocal about his distaste for birthdays due to having high expectations, he was given one of the oddest gifts imaginable for his 25th trip around the sun — a mantis shrimp, which he later admitted wasn’t as colorful as he’d hoped it would be.

That’s not all; one of his vlogs revealed that Mike had only spent $6 on the creature, which certainly pales in comparison to the present Logan got him for his birthday two months prior.

Thus, Paul kicked Mike out of his house, as revealed by his now-disgraced friend in an episode of ‘The Night Shift’ on April 9.

“I thought it was gonna be the greatest gift ever,” Mike admitted. “I thought he was gonna be so excited about it. …he f**kin’ hated it! It was the wrong shrimp, it wasn’t colorful enough for him. He didn’t like it. He thought it was ugly.”

Mike Majlak often hosts the imPaulsive podcast alongside Logan – but it looks like his commentary is being put on a brief hiatus.

That’s not all; he also claimed that he and Paul got into a verbal fight, which resulted in the YouTuber asking his friend for a bit of space to cool off, resulting in Majlak removing himself from the premises.

“That night, I wasn’t having it,” he continued. “I was pissed off. I said a bunch of s**t I didn’t mean. He said a bunch of s**t that wasn’t super nice, either. We were just slinging insults left and right. …it wasn’t my choice to leave the house. He asked me to give him a little bit of space, and rightfully so. And so, just like that, I’m back out on the mean streets.”

Paul addressed the matter during the latest episode of the imPaulsive podcast on April 9, where he read aloud a humorous letter sent from Mike to the audience.

“The intent was good, because it was technically a branch of my favorite animal, the mantis shrimp,” he said of the matter, when his gift was brought up. “Look guys, I’m on the same page… I don’t know.”

For now, it looks like Mike will have to sit on the sidelines as Logan simmers down from a gift that has split apart one of YouTube’s most explosive partnerships yet.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
