When I read the headline “Jake Paul Diss Track Has Gone Platinum,” I filled with a sense of hope for the future. Maybe the youths of America are starting to change their infatuated tune on Mr. Paul. Seeing through the rubbish.
And then I listened to RiceGum’s diss track titled “It’s EveryNight Sis,” a play on Jake Paul’s mantra “It’s Everyday Bro,” and I officially dislike someone more than Jake Paul. RiceGum is a YouTube star who has amassed 9.9 million followers from mindless drivel and youth pandering akin to his nemesis, Jake.
His diss track features Jake’s ex, Alissa Violet, and takes shots at Paul’s stardom on Disney and accusations that he was a bully in high school. Mind you, RiceGum is no stranger to controversy, as it was discovered he had old videos joking about raping girls.
In any event, “It’s EveryNight Sis” was recently certified “digital” platinum because I don’t make the rules. “Digital” platinum means the song needs 1 million “units,” which can be measured in permanent downloads or one unit equals 150 “on-demand audio and/or video streams,” reports Daily Dot.
The video has nearly 136 million views. Listen to it below.
RIP brain cells.
