Popular TikTok creator Josh Richards went live on Instagram with fellow internet star Griffin Johnson on April 27 when the former suddenly pulled down his pants, flashing his entire audience in real time.

The eighteen-year-old TikTokker appeared to follow the format of a popular video trend, where a user will drop their phone and fly into view to sit on the camera — usually with their derriere exposed.

However, Richard ultimately ended up showing much more than his backside, which caused such a stir that his name began trending on Twitter.

Richards spoke out regarding the incident in a series of Tweets shortly thereafter, writing, “Stop, it’s over,” and, “Yo, kinda legendary tho.”

Considering the relatively young age of his online audience, the TikTok star received ample backlash for showing his richard to the world, with many criticizing him over the matter via social media.

His joking tone soon changed in wake of the criticism, with the star publishing a lengthy apology via Twitter the next morning.

“I want to apologize about what happened yesterday during the live,” he wrote. “I have a responsibility because of followers I’ve been blessed with. Last night, I took advantage of that. I’m going to try to think harder before I act.”

The star went on to clarify that it was “never his intention” to “leak what got shown,” and claimed that he “made a promise” to “change who I am,” going on to explain that he will “think about what I’ve done and learn from it.”

Thus far, it seems that Richard’s apology has been met with mixed reactions, with some critics still upset that he’d shown such sensitive material to an underage audience.

“I love you alright, but dude wtf?” one user replied. “You have a young audience, some of us know how to deal with what we saw but those young people DON’T.”

“How tf do u pull your pants down on accident?” another challenged.

In spite of the criticism, some fans are expressing sympathy for Richards in wake of a controversial clip that has since gone viral across the net in a way he did not intend.

The TikTokker has not been suspended by Instagram at the time of writing.

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
