YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has given an solemn outlook on the possibility of his ‘Meme Review’ show being hosted by Tesla CEO and tech millionaire Elon Musk.

While it seemed that Musk was hell-bent on hosting the show, PewDiePie isn’t so sure that the collaboration will actually come to fruition, as stated during an episode of ‘Meme Review’ on February 2.

PewDiePie appeared to tease Musk’s appearance on the show before ultimately shutting it down – even joking that fans would have to wait until “the next millenia.”

“I guess we will check the next millenia to see if he can appear on ‘Bonus Meme,’” Pewds said of the issue. “…yeah, he’s never coming on.”

Musk made waves across the internet after tagging PewDiePie in a hilarious Tweet on January 27, where he was pictured holding one of his infamous flamethrowers aloft, with the caption, “Host meme review?”

While PewDiePie’s response hinted that the collab could drastically boost his subscribers in light of his war with Bollywood label T-Series, it looks like Musk’s ‘Bonus Meme’ segment may never come to light.

Musk wouldn’t be the first celebrity to make an appearance on the show, should he end up accepting in the future; conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro hosted ‘Bonus Meme’ in November of 2018, after which PewDiePie made an attempt to invite controversial rapper Tekashi69 onto a later episode.

However, Tekashi currently faces an extended time in prison, while Elon Musk is still giving PewDiePie the silent treatment – for now.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
