Jake Paul gets called out for saying the 'N-word multiple times' after slamming KSI for racist remarks
| Last updated
Jake Paul has been reminded of the times he’s said the ‘N-word multiple times’ after the YouTube-boxer slammed KSI for his racist remarks.
KSI landed himself in hot water after he used a racial slur in a video uploaded to YouTube group the Sidemen’s YouTube channel on Sunday.
The now-deleted video - which featured the YouTube group competing in a game of Countdown - included a clip of Olatunji using the term 'p**i' - a racial slur used to refer to someone of Pakistani descent.
The British YouTuber - real name Olajide Olatunji - issued a public apology on Twitter following the release of the video.
However, the apology was called out by Olatunji’s YouTube rival Jake Paul who claimed 29-year-old was full of ‘fake apologies’.
Fake guy with fake apologies every other week. I hope you take this more serious than taking a break off social media so you can focus on training and then reappearing two weeks before your fight saying you’re a new man.— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) April 3, 2023

He tweeted: “Fake guy with fake apologies every other week. I hope you take this more serious than taking a break off social media so you can focus on training and then reappearing two weeks before your fight saying you’re a new man.
"Meet with British South Asian community leaders, get with the right charities and give back. I made my own mistakes in my early 20s but we are too old for this behaviour.
"I look forward to knocking you the f**k out on behalf of all South Asians around the world. You 30 year old p***k."
While Paul makes some good points in terms of telling his rival to ‘give back’ and prove his apology, he might not have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to the topic.
Australian YouTuber Jake Buckley responded to Jake’s tweet reminding him of his own shortcomings in such an area.
He wrote: “Jake you’ve literally said the N word multiple times on camera I don't think you've got the facilities to come at KSI like that.”
In the tweet, he references a time Paul freestyled a rap back in 2015 where he says the slur on two occasions.
Despite the callout, some in the comments were quick to defend Jake.
One wrote: “Jake Paul was 21 years old in 2018. KSI is 29 years old and is turning 30 years old this summer. There's a big difference here my guy.”
Another said: “Read his tweet again my friend, Jake acknowledged the mistakes he’s made.”
A third added: “Did you not read the tweet? Jake was in his early 20s, yesterday KSI was 29 years old, anyone has the facilities to come at KSI.”
Regardless, two wrongs don’t make a right and KSI will have to do some deep reflecting and more than an apology to rectify his mistake.
