The YouTuber didn't hold back when discussing the younger Paul brother.

KSI has hit out at Jake Paul in a brand new interview with Esquire magazine.

The 24-year-old YouTuber, whose been gaining mainstream attention after his recent boxing match with Joe Weller and upcoming fight with Logan Paul, said that 21-year-old Jake is "someone that doesn't learn," adding that "he's a terrible role model." Just two days ago (March 20th), Jake claimed in an interview with Good Morning America that he was the kind of role model that young people need.

It isn't the first time KSI, real name Olajide William Olatunji, has hit out at Jake Paul. In February this year, he said he would "beat the shit out of" Jake in a boxing match after Jake challenged him to fight his and Logan's father.

KSI is no stranger to controversy himself - a subject he broached in the same interview.

KSI addresses past controversies: "I need to take responsibility for the power I have”

Referring to backlash he faced after attempting to "motorboat" women at a gaming event in 2012 (when he was 18), KSI said, “I’ve just grown up [since].”

“I started [YouTube] when I was 15 or 16. I didn’t really know much. Now I’m 24, almost 25. I understand I’m in a position where lots and lots of people have grown up with me, watching me, so I need to watch what I do, watch what I say, and not be stupid. I need to take responsibility for the power I have.”
