Popular YouTuber and makeup guru James Charles is no stranger to internet trolls, thanks to his widespread fame – but one troll crossed the line in a big way.

Content creator Jovan Hill uploaded a fake screenshot of an alleged conversation with Charles over Instagram, which showed a censored message from the YouTuber that appeared to say a racial slur.

Charles quickly shot back at Hill with a scathing threat after the Tweet went live, claiming that he would contact his lawyer over the screenshot should Hill fail to delete it.

Hill shot back at Charles’s threat in kind, writing in a now-deleted Tweet, “Let’s do it baby, I know the law.”

While Hill’s Twitter account has since been deactivated amidst the scandal, Charles continued to speak out on the faked message with a series of cautioning posts.

“It’s scary to me that there are actual people on twitter who crave attention so badly that they make fake screenshots to try and ruin other’s careers and lives,” he wrote of the debacle. “It’s not funny.”

However, some fans felt that Hill’s Tweet was just a joke – to which Charles had a serious response.

“Getting messages death threats and emails questioning one’s character over a fake screenshot is not a joke,” Charles wrote of the issue after one fan told him to “take a joke.”

James Charles is one of YouTube’s most popular makeup personalities, reaching over 15 million subscribers in early March and amassing over 14 million followers on Instagram.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
