The feud between KSI and the Paul brothers has escalated, with KSI accusing Logan of “casual racism”.
Olajide “KSI” Olatunji has directly addressed Jake Paul and Logan Paul after the brothers appeared reluctant to accept his challenge to a boxing match.
In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, KSI criticised Jake for branding him “irrelevant” and for consistently mispronouncing his online name.
Further into the video, KSI also alleged that he received a series of text messages from Logan featuring pictures of “random black people” after Logan claimed he had spotted the British creator in a crowd at the Super Bowl.
“Casual racism, nice, but you know what? I don’t care, I’m used to it,” KSI said in his accusation. “Plus, you filmed a dead guy and put it on YouTube, so you clearly don’t give a fuck anyway.”
Following his three-round win over Joe Weller at London’s Copper Box Arena on February 3, KSI called out both Jake and Logan in his victory speech, saying: “If any YouTuber wants it they can come and get it. Jake Paul, Logan Paul, any of the Pauls – I don’t care. Bring it.”
Jake then took to Twitter to publicly respond to the challenge, offering KSI the opportunity to fight his father and earn a $50,000 payout:
After Calling Me & My Brother @LoganPaul Out For NO Reason & Saying You’d Fight ANY Person With The Last Name of Paul.. Be a Man of ur word, represent England, & fight My 55yr old dad..
👉🏼Logan & I will also pay u $50k
bet u won’t do it @KSIOlajidebt https://t.co/WVSo9Ccp13 pic.twitter.com/D8qLiLKwt8

Jake also extended his offer in a recent vlog, featuring clips of himself sparring in a gym and mocking KSI for wearing protective headgear during his victorious bout:
In his own video, KSI refused to fight Greg Paul: “I’m sorry but I’m not going to fight your creepy, Vin-Diesel-on-crack-looking ass dad.
“I’m sorry but these guys… 100% the most cringe people I’ve ever watched. These boys need a beat down.
“But I’m gonna be honest, guys, I don’t think it’s gonna happen. I mean, with form like this… There’s actually no hope that you can beat me.”
Logan has hinted at his desire to take up KSI’s original challenge. In a recent vlog, Logan briefly mentioned the feud and said, “If he actually wants to fight me, I’m down”.
As well as this, Jake has published a further video on the subject, which sees him make a phone call to KSI’s brother Deji Olatunji (ComedyShortsGamer).
It remains unclear whether a boxing match between KSI and either Paul brother will eventually take place.
