YouTuber Cody Ko’s newest video took aim at the famous ‘Hype House’ collective of TikTok stars, mocking their ‘cringe’ content, but member Avani hopes it won’t make him hate her.

The Hype House is made up of various popular TikTokkers, many of them boasting millions of followers on their accounts, including names like Charli D’Amelio and Addison Rae.

Avani Gregg is one of the original superstars on the app, with over 13.4 million followers at the time of writing, and is one of the founding members of the Hype House. Along with others in the group, she was featured on Entertainment Tonight – the focus of Ko’s roast.

A commentary channel, Cody Ko often picks out the cringiest online content he can find, with his most popular series called “That’s Cringe”.

In his March 16 video, which has already gone viral with almost 2 million views, he focuses on TikTok, and not for the first time. But this time, it was specifically about the Hype House. “It’s like a bunch of kids, that are big on TikTok, they rented a big house in LA, and they all film TikToks together, in the bathroom,” as he describes it.

He then proceeds to laugh at the awkward video, which also features Addison Rae and Chase Hudson, as well as Avani, although she herself doesn’t do much talking.

But, it turns out Avani is a big fan of Cody Ko already and was worried that his discovery of the Hype House might make him ‘hate’ her.

“Please don’t hate me because I’m a part of the hype house I love your videos,” Avani posted on Twitter, tagging the YouTuber.

Cody was quick to respond, confirming that he “doesn’t hate anyone” and just thought the video was funny and awkward. Avani explained that it seemed to be the trend for YouTuber’s to hate on the Hype House, and thought Ko might have been jumping on the bandwagon.

In his video, Cody Ko admits that when he was known as a Vine star (the spiritual predecessor to TikTok), he actually appeared on a similar show and that it was probably just as cringeworthy.

Rather than the stars themselves, he blames the writers of the show for their decision to run the segment at all, saying it was always guaranteed to result in some level of awkwardness.

Logan Paul reacts to Jake calling him a “fake fighter” before Floyd Mayweather bout

YouTube star Logan Paul is set to throw down with undefeated professional boxer Floyd Mayweather this February — but little brother Jake Paul isn’t a fan of their upcoming bout, even calling his sibling a “fake fighter.”

The Paul brothers have unexpectedly shifted from their careers as top-tier YouTubers into white-collar boxers. Ever since August 2018, the two have dedicated their time to training and scoring high-profile matches; and Logan may have taken the cream of the crop.

On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Logan would be fighting 50-0 pro boxer Floyd Mayweather in a “Super Exhibition” match in February 2021. This news seemed to overshadow Jake’s 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson a week prior, which may have influenced his thoughts on his older brother’s upcoming match.

“My brother is f**ked,” Jake taunted in an interview with TMZ. “It’s bad for the sport. I think it’s just for clout. You know, my brother’s a fake fighter. I’m the real fighter. He’s 0-1, I’m 3-0.”

A week later, Logan has finally responded to his little bro’s scathing words — and it’s safe to say that he’s a little confused as to where the venom is coming from, although he’s completely unfazed by the insults.

“I’m like, little brothers up to some s**t, like he wants to get some attention for a sec, go for it,” he said of the matter. “But I fully support Jake — whatever drama he wants to stir or create, it really doesn’t bother me. ‘You’re a fake boxer.’ Okay. Let’s box, because Jake is the kid that gets beat up by my sparring partners.”

“I’ve become like rubber sheet metal, dude,” he continued. “In this fight, everyone’s sayin’ a lot of things, and for good reason. I’m fighting Floyd f**king Mayweather! So I’ve literally become immune to every — I’ve heard it all.”

(Topic begins at 47:58)

Jake isn’t the only one unsure of his brother’s chances; even Mike Tyson claimed that Floyd would “beat [Logan’s] f***kin’ ass” when it comes time for their match.

While the odds are certainly against Paul, there’s still a chance that he might surprise his critics and go the distance against his formidable opponent.
