Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul came out as a flat-earther during a speech at the Flat Earth International Conference in Denver, Colorado – but the Flat Earth Society is denying any involvement with the social media star.

The FES announced that they have no affiliation with the Conference, in a series of Tweets posted on November 18 – as well as any guests they should invite to speak at their events.


Additionally, the Society denied any involvement with Logan Paul, and admitted that they have “no intention” of offering him membership into their fold.

“As of the time of publishing this statement, TFES has not been in contact with Logan Paul, and we have no intention of offering him membership or otherwise affiliating with him,” the Society wrote. “Claims that Logan Paul is a member of TFES, or that he may be considered for membership, are untrue.”


Logan Paul’s speech at the Conference was met with heavy criticism, and some felt that it could be part of a larger plot altogether. 

Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem even accused Paul of seeking views, claiming that the speech could have been a stunt to get attention, as his previous upload had only received just over one million views as of November 16.



Paul has since introduced his new podcast series, Impaulsive, which currently sits at sixth place on Apple Podcast’s Top Charts as of November 21. 

Brother Jake Paul has likewise begun a new vlog series, dubbed ‘Jake Paul Uncut,’ following his breakup with Erika Costell after Shane Dawson’s documentary series wrapped up in late September.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.


Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.


“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.


“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”


Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.


“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
