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.

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.”
