Their opinion on the island comes from the family’s recent trip to Malta, together with multiple other internet personalities for what was reported to be the wedding of fellow Sideman Vikkstar123.

“One thing I will say is respect the pram… it’s so annoying”, Faith told the podcast’s Maltese viewers, describing how difficult it was to take care of the baby whilst fans swarmed the three. “They would literally sit on top of the bloody pram”, Faith went on to say.

In another clip Ethan called the Sidemen’s visit to Malta as something ‘similar’ to a zombie apocalypse, with fans on the island exhibiting ‘feral’ behaviour.

“Ethan likes it, for me, sorry Maltans, I wouldn’t go back,” Faith said.

Sidemen's Ethan 'Behzinga': Malta Visit was "Similar to a Zombie Apocalypse"

In a recent episode of ‘Growing Paynes’, the podcast hosted by Sidemen’s Ethan ‘Behzinga’ Payne and Faith Kelly, the popular internet personality said the YouTube supergroup’s visit to Malta was ‘similar to a zombie apocalypse’.

Comparing the island trip to Harry Wroetoshaw’s holiday in Gibraltar, it was stated that Malta exhibited ‘feral’ and ‘crackhead’ behaviour while the group was in Malta.

“I suppose they’re so far out…” Behzinga said, “no one’s going like”, his wife continued. Faith went on to say that it wasn’t what she expected from Malta, going on to say that she doesn’t quite understand the country.

“Ethan likes it, for me, sorry Maltans, I wouldn’t go back,” the YouTuber and TikToker continued.

World Commemorates 22 Years Since 9/11 Tragedy

Americans across the nation marked the 22nd anniversary of 9/11 with solemn commemorations. 

Bells tolled at ground zero, and people gathered at various sites, including memorials, firehouses, and city halls, to remember the nearly 3,000 lives lost in the terror attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania. 

The events of that day profoundly influenced both American foreign policy and domestic security concerns.

President Joe Biden participated in a ceremony at a military base in Anchorage, underscoring the widespread impact of 9/11. 

He was en route to Washington, D.C. from a trip to India and Vietnam. Eddie Ferguson, the fire-rescue chief in Virginia’s Goochland County, reflected on the unity that emerged on that tragic day, emphasising how the nation came together to help.

In Goochland County, which has a population of 25,000, two separate commemorations took place: one in the morning, focusing on first responders, and another in the evening, honouring all victims. 

Across the country, communities paid tribute through moments of silence, tolling bells, candlelight vigils, and various other activities. In Columbus, Indiana, 911 dispatchers broadcasted a remembrance message to emergency responders, while the city of 50,000 also held a public memorial ceremony.
