After Donald Trump praised the prank content giant Nelk Boys during his appearance on Logan Paul’s ‘Impaulsive’ podcast, Nelk member John Shahidi accused social media platform Meta of taking down the usernames of the Nelk Boys members.

Nelk Boys member John Shahidi accused in an X post that after Trump said he enjoyed the work of the Nelk Boys, Meta took down the usernames of the Nelk members

“Trump on Impaulsive: ‘Kyle Forgeard & John Shahidi are great’. Meta employees working from home:

‘Let’s take their usernames away!!’. It never ends. Trump 2024,” Shahidi wrote on X.

However, Times Now could not verify if Meta took any action against the Nelk Boys usernames. There are also no reports of the same from any news outlet.

However, fans of the Nelk Boys expressed their support for the content creators.

“How? Why? First the nelk boys now this shit?? Love the initiative of @nelkboys @happydad @BoredJerky completely unacceptable of meta. Glad @john found his place on @x ! Lets make the movement too big to cancel. Great work @john sorry this happened.,” one said.

“Why would Meta care about what Trump says about Nelk,” another wrote, visibly confused at the claims.

“Remind the nelk team of full send meta card and alien Frens All you have to say,” said another.

In October 2020, members of the group met President Donald Trump aboard Air Force One during one of his 2020 presidential election rallies. They encountered Trump once more in July 2021 at UFC 264, and he made an appearance on the Full Send Podcast in March 2022. The episode got over 5 million views within 24 hours, and YouTube removed it eventually.

The Nelk Boys, also known as Nelk, operate a Canadian-American YouTube channel and entertainment company. They gained fame for their prank videos, vlogs, and their Full Send Entertainment brand. Kyle Forgeard and Jesse Sebastiani, the group’s founders, are recognized as “two of the most prominent figures among youth in North America.”
