Why Jake Paul is ending his beef with the Dolan Twins

YouTube stars Jake Paul and the Dolan Twins have officially quashed their years-long feud, which began in 2017 after the Twins accused Paul of taking unwarranted responsibility for their social media stardom.

The Dolan Twins uploaded a YouTube video on May 25, where Grayson surprised brother Ethan with a $40k housewarming gift — which included a surprising appearance from Jake Paul, who helped pull off the wholesome practical joke.

This feature came as a shock to fans, as the Dolan Twins had previously feuded with the youngest Paul brother for seemingly claiming the Twins’ YouTube fame in his memoir, ‘You Gotta Want It.’

“Jake never tried to sign us,” the Twins said of the subject in an interview with YouTuber Caspar Lee. “There’s something in his book that says something how he… like we were his ‘test experiments,’ and he flew us out to L.A. — which he didn’t.”

“…It was everyone bringing each other up,” the continued, discussing the collaborative ‘vibe’ of the Team 10 house. “I would never say [that] about somebody, even if I did. I didn’t make you, your mom made you. How do you ‘make’ someone?”

This notably sparked some debate among the YouTubers’ respective fanbases, and it was soon theorized that the content creators weren’t too fond of each other — until recently.

Paul uploaded his own YouTube video that promised to address the topic on May 28, where he and the Twins recreated one of their old collaborative uploads from years and years ago.

While Paul and the Dolan Twins notably feuded back in 2017, it seems the group has finally made amends in a surprising turn of events.

However, the group didn’t exactly discuss their prior drama, likely keeping the details behind doors — but the good news is that both parties appear to be on good terms, with fans sounding off in support in the comments section congratulating their rekindled friendship.

That’s not all; the trio even celebrated their reunion with a humorous TikTok, recreating an old photo of theirs to Simple Plan’s upbeat lyrics, “I’m just a kid.”

While fans may never know what prompted the group to make amends, at least they’re back to their old shenanigans — and we’re here for it.

KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
