Multiple TikTok users have called out Sommer Ray, Tayler Holder and even pop sensation Jason Derulo over their use of a certain song in a TikTok video made together.

While rumors regarding Sommer Ray and Tayler Holder’s on/off relationship continue, with the two seemingly back together, they teamed up with Jason Derulo and his girlfriend Jena Frumes to make some TikTok videos together.

Although it mostly seemed like harmless fun, several people have called the group out over one video in particular.

Derulo has become a star on TikTok, frequently making videos with girlfriend Jena Frumes.

The ability to use different sounds in TikTok always helps keep content fresh and different, but the group picked one that has upset a few people – including the creator of the sound himself.

Together, the quartet decided to dance to og_taco’s sound, which uses Down AKA Kilo’s song “Lean like a Cholo.”

‘Cholo’ is a term commonly used by Latin Americans when talking with or about each other, and some viewers thought using the song in their video was in bad taste, including ogtaco himself who created the ‘challenge’, which you can see the stars dancing to here.

Before long, commenters had called them out for using the song, saying that it is “disrespectful,” and og_taco himself said that it “doesn’t feel right” to see them using it.

Derulo, however, wasn’t having any of it, and asked taco for an explanation.

He said: “Please explain to me why we shouldn’t dance to this song? Because I don’t get it.” He went on to add that he would “never want to exclude any race” from dancing to his music.”

Derulo didn’t agree with taco’s take, saying he would never stop any race from dancing to his music.

It doesn’t seem as though any more has happened since then, but the comments on Sommer’s original post are very much split, with some saying it is disrespectful and others saying that there is nothing wrong with it.

Nonetheless, the video has stayed up, so it seems Sommer, Tayler, Jason and Jena do not see any issue with the video themselves.

A small Twitch streamer became emotional after YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg donated to him. The personality thanked the star for bringing attention to his channel.

For many viewers around the world, PewDiePie has been the face of online entertainment over the last decade. The 30-year-old boasts 107 million YouTube subscribers in 2020.

In September, the content creator went viral when he gave a small Twitch streamer his very first donation ever. And on October 15, the personality became emotional when the Swede donated to him for the second time.

Small streamer emotional after PewDiePie donates

On September 24, Twitch streamer BluWolfie123 was playing the wildly popular title Among Us when he received a donation from PewDiePie. Stunned and not sure if it was really the YouTuber, the personality exclaimed “That’s f**king insane. What the hell! It’s my first donation!”

On October 15, the entertainer decided to donate to the streamer a second time. “This is the same [streamer] from last time. Hey, he grew in viewers, good for him!” Pewds said, as he donated another $100. Shocked, BluWolfie exclaimed, “What the f**k?!”

The Twitch streamer then asked if PewDiePie was watching him live, before thanking him: “Holy s**t, thank you! I wanted to say thank you. I commented on your last video, but it got buried. Yo, if you’re there, I wanted to say thank you before. I wanted to thank you directly. If you’re here, thank you! You’re f**king awesome! I can not thank you enough.”

(Topic starts at 5:00.)

Kjellberg thanked Wolfie for his kind words and then told viewers to check out the user’s Twitch channel. “Check out BluWolfie, he’s so wholesome,” he said. The streamer further commented on the situation on his About page. “I got super lucky thanks to the Pewds and his community and I’m super happy.”

Pewds also gave away money to several other small channels on the Amazon-owned streaming platform – a few of whom cried over the popular YouTuber popping in to watch their broadcast.

This isn’t the first time PewDiePie has donated money. For months, he has been donating all of his streaming subscriber money to various charities. In October, he sent a mental health charity $144k.
