This is the tense moment comedian Pete Davidson asked YouTuber and Boxer Jake Paul about allegations of sexual assault against him before going onto brand him a 'piece of s**t' in an interview with Ben Askren on Saturday.

In Saturday's interview, Paul can he heard laughing off Davidson's alleged question about the allegations, saying: 'Bro, you can't joke around about that'. 

In response, Davidson says 'I'm not, I'm not' and tells the YouTuber he's just checking if he's 'good'.

Davidson then asks Paul a series of awkward questions, including his favorite colour, before ending the interview. 

The American comedian then went to MMA fighter Ben Askren's locker room, for a second bout of awkward interviewing. 

Davidson quickly asks Askren why he does not like his opponent Paul. The MMA fighter explains, 'even if Jake Paul's a decent fighter he's still a s**tbag as a human being'. 

Davidson quickly chimes in to agree and then says, 'and that's what we're trying to get, you know, the message to the kids, that he is a piece of s**t'.

It was an abrupt turnaround from Davidson's attempted friendliness with Paul in the earlier interview.
