Twitch star Pokimane is hitting out at fellow streamer Trainwrecks for featuring Kaite as a contestant on his broadcasts, after she called Fedmyster “ugly” during an April episode of the ‘Rajjchelor’ dating show.

The drama surrounding Trainwrecks’ popular live show continues, after an April 29 episode of the ‘Rajjchelor’ flew off the rails due to Kaite’s divisive comments.

Popularly hailed as the “villain” on the Bachelor-style broadcast, Kaite called contestant Fedmyster “ugly” after denying his request for a virtual date that would be hosted on Trainwrecks’ channel after “winning” the segment, choosing to have her own channel hosted, instead.

“Honestly, I checked him out beforehand, and just… I think you’re ugly, I’m not attracted to you,” she admitted.

While Kaite was quickly called out by Pokimane, a close friend of Fedmyster, that wasn’t the end of Poki’s thoughts on the subject, who spoke further on the drama two days later.

During a May 1 stream, she appeared to call out Trainwrecks for even giving Kaite a platform on his show, calling Kaite’s behavior “rude.”

“Are my standards too high if I feel like it’s weird that Train is even platforming her after she was like, so oddly rude and b**chy to so many people?” she asked her viewers. “I get it — drama equals views, but sometimes, you can try to make it a bit less apparent.”

Rajj apologized to Fedmyster in a separate stream, explaining that he wasn’t happy with Kaite’s insult during one of the most viewed streams in the history of the Rajjchelor.

“I just want to say, I feel so guilty even though I didn’t — nobody told her to say that, she just shocked everybody,” he clarified. “It was too far… it crossed the line.”

Pokimane’s latest comments were made in reference to an older clip from an episode of the Trainwrecks podcast, where Kaite left the stream after a past instance was brought up where she’d been eliminated from the Rajjchelor over allegedly racist remarks.

“Honestly, though, I’m not surprised,” she said of the matter. “People who talk big s**t are always like that.”

This isn’t Pokimane’s first time slamming the streamer, by far; she was quick to call out Kaite directly after her “ugly” remark was made, which prompted Kaite to clap back by calling Pokimane “a b**ch.”

It’s safe to say that there’s no love lost between these two streamers, with Trainwrecks also coming under scrutiny from Pokimane’s fanbase over continuing to feature Kaite in his broadcasts in wake of the drama.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson are finally stepping into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup. Here’s what you need to know. 

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight is a little different. He’s fighting former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout – which is sure to be a spectacle itself. So, here’s what you need to know.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

What time is Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson?

Despite the attention the YouTuber brings, the Paul vs Robinson bout isn’t the main event of the evening, so it’s hard to nail down an exact start time. 

Some reports have suggested that the pair should make their ring walks at around 4 am GMT on Sunday, November 29. In the US, that’ll still be Saturday, November 28 at 8 pm PST/11 pm EST, given that the main event is due to start an hour later at 9 pm PST. 

Of course, this could change given the results of the previous fights, so if you don’t want to miss a moment of it, you’ll just have to tune in from the start

Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson PPV & live stream

Speaking of how to watch the fight, there are a handful of different ways – it just depends on where you are in the world.  In the UK, BT Sports have the rights to the fight, and it’ll cost 19.95 through their Box Office service. This is also available online in case you don’t want to watch it on TV in the early hours. 

If you’re in the United States, you’ll have to check with your cable provider, but it’ll cost $49.99 if they’re showing it. You can also access it through FiteTV and the TysonTriller website, which will also set you back $49.99.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else is in action on the card, it’s not full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack is in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr is set to be an electrifying affair.
