Popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le has hit out at KSI over his “petty” behavior following his boxing rematch against Logan Paul in November last year.

The rematch between YouTube stars KSI and Logan Paul attracted a lot of attention following their first clash, as thousands of fans and some of the top social media influencers were in attendance.

Among those who attended was RiceGum, who claimed that KSI had acted petty towards him after the fight, calling him out during a recent episode of KEEMSTAR’s DramaAlert.

KSI and Logan Paul have clashed twice inside the boxing ring.

During his interview alongside fellow content creator Leafy, it was revealed that KSI had unfollowed RiceGum on all his socials and that he temporarily removed the popular diss track, Earthquake, that they had created together from YouTube.

RiceGum explained that this new feud began shortly after the boxing match and claimed that KSI had overreacted after he accepted an invitation from Logan Paul to attend the event when the British star did not invite him.

“There’s no beef from my side, I still follow him, he’s so petty for no reason I don’t get it,” he admitted, “It’s stemming from the Logan Paul fight. KSI didn’t send me a free ticket man.”

Topic starts at 0:42 for mobile users.

“He was only inviting the UK homies so I didn’t want to even bother him, he was busy,” RiceGum continued, “Logan was also busy, I didn’t hit him up either he just sent a package, I didn’t even ask and that was it.”

He claimed that KSI had overreacted after he accepted Logan’s invite and added that he was actually rooting for KSI during the bout. “That led to him unfollowing me and deleting the video, it was so uncool bro, we chilled in LA. I gave him a feature at the time he wasn’t even pulling numbers when my music was really up.”

He later doubled down on KSI, however, calling him clingy for not allowing him to be friends with Logan as well, “Nah but KSI is petty bro, he’s just possessive and clingy like why can’t I have other friends, he’s like, ‘Oh you can’t be friends with Logan’.”

As of now, KSI has not yet responded publicly to any of RiceGum’s comments.

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
