YouTube star Trisha Paytas is known for the wild moments that have occurred throughout her career as an entertainer, but fans weren’t expecting a crazy story she told on the H3H3 Podcast.

While Paytas has done everything from making music to modeling and more, the social media celebrity is best recognized for her emotional videos opening up to fans on her kitchen floor, as well as her beef with other personalities on the net.

Thus, it came as little surprise to viewers when she squashed her famous feud with H3H3’s Ethan Klein by appearing on his podcast — but their discussion soon turned to a topic that left their jaws on the floor.

YouTube star Trisha Paytas was asked to tell her wildest stories on the H3H3 Podcast – and she didn’t disappoint.

Paytas was in the middle of the podcast when Klein’s wife and comedy partner, Hila, asked about the YouTuber’s storied past; more specifically, her wild nights in her younger years.

Her answer came as quite a shock when she revealed that she’d been shot at by an unnamed celebrity when she was 22 years old, who she refused to identify for fear that he would sue her for telling the wild tale.

Paytas is best known for her videos filmed on her kitchen floor, where she usually opens up to fans about her daily life.

“I had a guy that just liked to shoot at your head when he was f**ked up,” she answered. “He got off, like, almost killing you. But he was like, ‘I’m not such a good shot, I’m not going to,’ and he would shoot around your head.”

The YouTuber went on to claim that the incident took place in Malibu, California, and that she was even forced to sign an NDA — even though she was under the influence of questionable substances.

“For me, I left right away, because I thought he was going to kill me because I was f**ked up,” she continued. “I remember I got in my car and left. …he’s like, it turns him on to shoot guns. …he told me to stand over there, and just shot around my head. That’s what I remember.”

Despite claiming that the incident was “consensual,” Klein expressed great concern over the morality of the situation and her safety — but thanks to their informative discussion on NDAs, it looks like Paytas is going to review some of the more sketchy agreements she’s made in the past.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

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.”
