Description

In Grounded with Louis Theroux, Louis is using the lockdown to track down some high-profile people he’s been longing to talk to – a fascinating mix of the celebrated, the controversial and the mysterious.

In this episode, Louis speaks to YouTube star, rapper and boxer, KSI. They discuss being an outsider at school, his fear of losing and internet beef.

Ksi is from an African family which no doubt makes life harder in this country, he's worked himself from a nerdy kid to a top 10 artist, huge YouTuber and boxing show to make millions, hate him if you want but for me hate is jealousy, he has earned it, I hate the social media generation but can't not respect how he's achieved what he has. What are movie stars or singers real contribution outside entertainment? This is just the new wave. The problem people have is its not done on quality of who they are or filter so they're just human, celeare scripted and controlled to avoid offence. I like and respect JJ but only issues I have is he's an immature 27 like most with so much power and money I feel his attitude and morals can be really off, he needs someone to think for him as I think he could potentially one day cause huge outrage with ignorance, the social media gen don't have proper morals they just say what they want to look good. Like JJ should've done way more for BLM but didn't. As an entertainer he is awesome, as a person in success is a roll model but as a person sadly not so much.

This guy went away and has now found himself by apparently tattooing Integrity, Knowledge and Strength on his external - but evidently, not absorbed internally....He's very obsessed with his inflated ego, persona, fame, superficiality, beef with people, creating aggro with other online (equally vacuous) people. His finest moments? YouTube video's 'KSI being awkward in public' where he throws sexually abusive questions at young girls such as 'What else do you do apart from fingering yourself?' Also, a NY Times best seller 'Am I a Bellend?' (which he hasn't read) about his sexual escapades, porn watching, masturbation - which he blames on his parents upbringing; who incidentally, forsook their lifes, working very hard so their kids could go to private school whilst not leading luxurious lives. This is what turned out - a car crash.

How stupid have we become as a human race, that people watch the garbage these idiots post on Youtube and regard them as celebrities. What contribution are they making ? In a world that already contains so much bullying, unhappiness, and spite, we hear these idiots eulogise about "beef" and hatred of other irrelevant Youtubers. This episode was utter nonsense.

I feel that Louis did this for his kids and not his audience.

Great show again from Louis, though I was disappointed by KSI, whom I found to be childish and disrespectful of women. Despite apologies for some of his behaviour I feel like he hid behind a lot of excuses. Sure, we've all made mistakes in our past but he seemed almost proud of his ghosting experiences and public shaming. well, I'll look forward to the diss video I guess.
