In case you haven’t been on Twitter, Jake Paul has the capability to definitely get beneath people’s pores and skin just by his mere existence – but in particular when he talks trash. Ben Askren, though, is the sort of man to take it all in stride.
Circumstance in place: For the duration of his job interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani on Tuesday (which I despise to acknowledge I watched the full factor), Paul experienced an all-time cringey minute when he was requested why he follows only the formal Triller account and Askren’s wife, Amy, on Instagram.
“She thicc, bro,” Paul stated.
“She’s what?” responded Helwani.
“She’s thicc, with lke two c’s – t-h-i-c-c,” Paul repeated. “Thicc like she’s serious thicc. So, I don’t know, like, I just considered she’s negative. I don’t know. I signify, probably immediately after I conquer Ben. I don’t know.”
It was just one of those moments where by you sense so embarrassed for the man or woman, and that would seem to be how Askren also took it. On Wednesday, he shared the fantastic reaction by estimate-tweeting the clip, which you can examine out listed here:

This is laugh out loud uncomfortable!!! But of course @jakepaul I obtain my wife pretty beautiful also LOL.
Bringing up significant others is Paul’s matter seemingly. He also invoked Conor McGregor’s fiancee, Dee Devlin, in a person of his modern trash-conversing movies by insulting her seems to be – which was just low-priced and childish, but whatsoever. This is what you can hope.
Stuff like this is certain to ramp up as we get closer to April 17, when Paul and Askren combat in an eight-spherical boxing match. Brace your self.
