Logan Paul has responded to claims he ‘scammed’ fans with his CryptoZoo project.
In case you missed it, journalist Stephen 'Coffeezilla' Findeisen made a three-part YouTube series in which he claimed Paul had ripped off millions of dollars from his fans with his cryptocurrency game.
In the series, Findeisen spoke with numerous alleged victims, who claimed to have lost money.
On January 1, Paul shared a screenshot of an email he says he sent to Findeisen, in which he asks him to have a ‘discussion’ on his Impaulsive YouTube channel. Paul said the email went unanswered.
Posting the screen grab, he wrote: “I sent this message to CoffeeZilla 5 days ago. I haven’t heard back, so I’ll be releasing a response to his scam allegations tomorrow on my YouTube channel.”
And now, Paul has indeed responded with his own YouTube video in which he accused Findeisen of using his name for ‘views and money’ and disputing the claims he made.
In the video, he said: "Coffeezilla, I watched your three-part series called 'Investigating Logan Paul's biggest scam’.
"Like many on this platform, you have successfully used my name for views and money. While your work used to be impartial, your addiction to clicks has clouded your judgment and you made very real errors with very real repercussions. [Coffeezilla has continued] to morph from an investigator to a gossip channel. He is a lopsided journalist with an agenda.”
Paul also accuses Findeisen of using an illegally obtained clip of his manager Jeff Levin; and of not reaching out to him for comment before the vidoes went live on YouTube.
The YouTuber then went on to threaten legal action against Findeisen, finishing his seven-minute video by saying: "We're going to handle this ourselves while we continue to build CryptoZoo and I'll see you in court."
However, it looks as though Findeisen isn’t too concerned about the threats - in a post on Twitter he wrote: "Logan Paul responded. [Too Long, Didn't Watch]; 0 apologies, 0 addressing victims, 0 accountability. I will reply in full when I organise my thoughts, but for now, Logan accuses me of not reaching out to him directly until Dec 24, 2022... But doesn't mention I reached out over a year prior on Instagram."
He later posted: "This is hardly important with all the insane lies on Logan Paul's new video... but did he really say he was going to SUE ME, and also say he'd love to host me on Impaulsive? LMAO IT'S A TRAP!"
