Before Jake Paul's surprising round one knockout of Ben Askren, Pete Davidson asked the Youtuber turned pugilist a question that the Triller Fight Club broadcast censored.

“You can’t joke about that,” Paul said.
“I’m not, I’m not. You good," Davidson responded
There was speculation over whether the SNL funnyman asked Paul about CTE, performance-enhancing drugs, or TikTok star Justine Paradise accusing Paul of forcing her to give him oral sex.
According to gossip queen Perez Hilton, it was about the sexual assault.
Jack Harlow, who was with Davidson, didn't like the question.
“I feel like if I was a boxer, the last thing I’d want is this right before I fought. If I was a boxer, I feel like the last thing I’d want is motherfuckers coming in here asking me questions.”
