H3H3, or the husband and wife duo of Ethan and Hila Klein, has come under fire after Ethan critiqued Korean Pop (or K-pop) stars – much to their fans’ dismay.

H3H3 has never shied away from controversy or addressing their thoughts, but by and large, they remain popular and beloved content creators on YouTube.

But not everyone loves them, and they definitely made a fair few enemies on December 9 when they dared to critique one of K-pop’s biggest exports, BTS.

BTS is one of the biggest K-pop groups in the world.

Watching one of BTS’ videos, Ethan and Hila discussed the genre, and Ethan was very clear in saying that he just doesn’t understand the appeal.

“I don’t get the BTS thing,” he said. “I’m just going to say it right now, I don’t like K-pop. I hate K-pop. I don’t get BTS. How did this become a thing in Western culture, where all these grown men and little girls are jerking off to K-pop boys? It’s like a little fetish.”

He then asked ‘Ian the Intern’ for his thoughts, who said he doesn’t like it but “gets why people do,” with Ethan reiterating his point saying how “weird” K-pop fans are on Twitter before joking that someone will probably try to “assassinate” him for what he’s said.

As such, the K-pop fans responded in kind on Twitter, getting the hashtag “#h3h3isoverparty” trending in a bid to get him ‘canceled’.

Ethan didn’t seem too bothered by the backlash, celebrating trending on Twitter and continuing to make digs at the community as the abuse rained down on him.

He even tweeted out to reiterate the point he made, saying: “My message to K-pop fans: Lighten up nerds, if you can’t handle your hobby being made fun of a little bit then you are really are just a bunch of little girls jerking off to K-pop boys.”

Ethan doesn’t seem too bothered by the drama, basking in the glory of his name trending on the social media platform and tweeting the hashtag to keep it going.

K-pop fans are among some of the most committed in the world and will defend their idols to their last breath. It’s not a great idea to get on the wrong side of them, as H3H3 learned the hard way – and they may not rush to do it again.

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.
