Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul teased a possible injury to his arm across social media, although he never directly addressed the issue – until he uploaded a video on the topic on April 6.

According to Paul, he’d broken his hand while boxing fellow YouTuber Joe Weller on March 23, showing what looked to be a massive “goose egg” on top of his hand.

Paul claimed that he’d felt pain in the appendage for several days before rushing to the hospital with his mother, boxing coach, and singing coach in tow, receiving a splint for the wound.

Is Jake Paul’s injury due to infection or a break?

Paul’s boxing coach claimed he’d be out for two to three months due to the injury, which him wake with an intense fever and swelling the next day.

The YouTuber was rushed to the emergency room in an ambulance shortly thereafter, with Paul claiming that he could feel an infection spreading from his hand down his forearm.

While Paul claimed to never have been given a straight answer about the cause of his condition, his mother speculated that it was an abscessed infection due to cellulitis, a common yet potentially fatal bacterial infection.

Paul likewise theorized that he may have received the infection due to open wounds on his hands after sliding down a rope in a video, which then spread to his boxing injury.

Jake underwent a four-hour surgery, in which the surgeon opened the top of his hand to suck out the abscessed fluid and discovered a sprain in the process.

Is Jake Paul’s boxing career really over?

Despite Paul’s near-constant clickbait pranks, his story appears to be real; however, his boxing career could be put on hold due to his three-month recovery timeframe.

Paul was originally set to box American rapper Soulja Boy after the two got into a beef via social media, quickly followed by his last-minute bout with YouTuber Joe Weller – which many fans speculated was “fixed” beforehand, as Weller went down fairly easily after receiving a well-placed body shot from Paul.

Jake’s surgery story also follows the death of Logan Paul’s beloved Pomeranian, ‘Kong da Savage,’ who passed away the night of April 5 due to a fatal coyote attack.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
