Last August, KSI left the group, and that apparently angered Weller, who was never officially in the group but who was considered a friend of the Sidemen.
Since then, the two have traded insulting videos and diss lines. Weller has explosion KSI for insulting him about his feeling, and KSI has taken offense at Weller’s body-shaming and for announcing him a “geezer.” Both have hurled gay and misogynist slurs at one another as they’ve hyped the fight.
It’s unsure whether this grudge is very, but it’s suck batch in the best interests. And if it is a manufactured polemic, it’s ran. As Polygon illustrates, KSI knows how drama on his path can lead to increased deems, writing, “KSI’s popularity on YouTube first peaked between 2009 and 2011, before making a revitalization in 2017 thanks to the series of manufactured contends between him and other YouTubers.”
Whether it’s real or forgery, both YouTubers seem ready to fight.
