Logan Paul is quite possibly one of YouTube’s most divisive stars, and his reputation has never quite recovered following the whole filming-the-dead-body fiasco that seriously tarnished his career.
The controversial content creator has found himself in the line of fire once again, this time thanks to a feud with hip-hop band, Flobots.
TMZ reports that Paul’s parody of Flobots’ track “Handlebars” could cost him a lot more than he might have planned, as creating his own video named “No Handlebars” seems to have really touched a nerve with the band.
It was all going fine until Paul decided to joke that he didn’t know who Flobots are — safe to say, he’s about to.
TMZ has managed to obtain court documents showing Flobots is taking legal action against the YT star.
According to the leaked documents, Flobots claims that “the lyrics are nearly identical for four successive bars.”

24-year-old Paul probably makes more money than any human really ever needs, but if Flobots’ lawsuit is successful, he might have to part with some of his barely-earned cash.
The band wants to shut down Paul’s “No Handlebars” and collect any profits Paul made from the song.
Considering Forbes estimated that he made up to $150k for every Facebook post in 2017 and $80k a sponsored Instagram posts, the parody track could be something Paul seriously regrets…
Maybe it’ll teach Paul a lesson?
